Back to book

- عنه، عن جعفر بن القداح، عن أبى عبد الله، عن أبيه (ع) قال: كان رسول الله صلى الله عليه وآله إذا شرب الماء قال: " الحمد لله الذى سقانا عذبا زلالا برحمته، ولم يسقنا ملحا أجاجا بذنوبنا ".


1. From him, from Ja’far Bin Al Qadah, (It has been narrated) from Abu Abdullah (asws), from his (asws) father (asws) having said: ‘Whenever Rasool-Allah (saww) drank the water, said: ‘الحمد لله الذى سقانا عذبا زلالا برحمته، ولم يسقنا ملحا أجاجا بذنوبنا’ ‘The Praise is for Allah (azwj) Who Quenched us (with) fresh and pure due to His (azwj) Mercy, and did not Quench us (with) salty and bitter due to our sins’.




عنه، عن ابن محبوب، عن عبد الله بن سنان، قال: سمعت أبا عبد الله (ع) يقول: إن الرجل ليشرب الشربة، فيدخله الله به الجنة، قلت: وكيف ذاك؟ - قال: إن الرجل ليشرب الماء فيقطعه، ثم ينحى الاناء وهو يشتهيه، فيحمد الله، ثم يعود فيشرب، ثم ينحيه وهو يشتهيه، فيحمد الله، ثم ينحيه فيحمد الله، فيوجب الله له بذلك الجنة، ويقول: " بسم الله " في أول كل مرة.


2. From him, from Ibn Mahboub, from Abdullah Bin Sinan who said, ‘I heard Abu Abdullah (asws) saying: ‘The man drinks the drink, so Allah (azwj) Enters him into the Paradise due to that’. I said, ‘And how is that?’ He (asws) said: ‘The man goes to drink the water so he cuts it off, then he puts down the pot and he is desirous for it, so he Praises Allah (azwj), then returns to drink it, then he puts it down and he is desirous for it, so he Praises Allah (azwj), then he puts it down, so he Praises Allah (azwj). Therefore, Allah (azwj) Obligates the Paradise for him due to that, and he is saying ‘In the Name of Allah (azwj)’, during the beginning of every time’.




عنه، عن يعقوب بن يزيد، عن ابن عم لعمر بن يزيد، عن بنت عمرو بن يزيد، عن أبيها، عن أبى عبد الله (ع) قال: إذا شرب أحدكم الماء فقال: " بسم الله " ثم قطعه، فقال: " الحمد لله " ثم شرب، فقال: " بسم الله " ثم قطعه، فقال: " الحمد لله " سبح ذلك الماء مادام في بطنه إلى أن يخرج.


3. From him, from Yaqoub Bin Yazeed, from a son of the uncle of Umar Bin Yazeed, from a daughter of Amro Bin Yazeed, from her father, ‘Abu Abdullah (asws) having said: ‘When one of you drinks the water, so he should say, ‘بسم الله’ ‘In the Name of Allah (azwj)’, then cuts it (stops drinking), so he says, ‘الحمد لله’ ‘The Praise is for Allah (azwj)’, then drinks. So he said, ‘" بسم الله’ ‘In the Name of Allah (azwj)’, then cuts it, so he said, ‘الحمد لله’ ‘The Praise is for Allah (azwj)’, that water Glorifies for as long as it is in his belly, until it comes out’.
