Back to book

1ـ عَلِيُّ بْنُ إِبْرَاهِيمَ عَنْ أَبِيهِ عَنْ عَلِيِّ بْنِ مَعْبَدٍ عَنْ عَبْدِ الله بْنِ الْقَاسِمِ عَنْ يُونُسَ بْنِ ظَبْيَانَ عَنْ أَبِي عَبْدِ الله (عَلَيهِ السَّلام) قَالَ إِنَّ الله لَيَدْفَعُ بِمَنْ يُصَلِّي مِنْ شِيعَتِنَا عَمَّنْ لا يُصَلِّي مِنْ شِيعَتِنَا وَلَوْ أَجْمَعُوا عَلَى تَرْكِ الصَّلاةِ لَهَلَكُوا وَإِنَّ الله لَيَدْفَعُ بِمَنْ يُزَكِّي مِنْ شِيعَتِنَا عَمَّنْ لا يُزَكِّي وَلَوْ أَجْمَعُوا عَلَى تَرْكِ الزَّكَاةِ لَهَلَكُوا وَإِنَّ الله لَيَدْفَعُ بِمَنْ يَحُجُّ مِنْ شِيعَتِنَا عَمَّنْ لا يَحُجُّ وَلَوْ أَجْمَعُوا عَلَى تَرْكِ الْحَجِّ لَهَلَكُوا وَهُوَ قَوْلُ الله عَزَّ وَجَلَّ وَلَوْ لا دَفْعُ الله النَّاسَ بَعْضَهُمْ بِبَعْضٍ لَفَسَدَتِ الأرْضُ وَلكِنَّ الله ذُو فَضْلٍ عَلَى الْعالَمِينَ فَوَ الله مَا نَزَلَتْ إِلا فِيكُمْ وَلا عَنَى بِهَا غَيْرَكُمْ.


1. Ali ibn Ibrahim has narrated from his father from Ali ibn Ma’bad from ‘Abd Allah ibn al-Qasim from Yunus ibn Zabyan from abu ‘Abd Allah (a.s.) who has said the following: ‘‘Allah defends through those of our Shi’a (followers) who perform prayer from those of our Shi’a (followers) who do not perform prayers, and if they all stop praying all of them will face destruction. Allah defends through those of our Shi’a (followers) who pay al-Zakat (charity) from those who do not pay al-Zakat and if they all stop paying al-Zakat all of them will be destroyed. Allah defends through those of our Shi’a (followers) who perform Hajj from those who do not perform Hajj and if they all stop performing Hajj all of them will be destroyed. This is indicated in the words of Allah, the Most Majestic, the Most Holy, ‘Had Allah not defended one group of people through the other, the earth would have been destroyed, but Allah is generous to the worlds.’ (2:251) This, by Allah, has been revealed about you and no one else is meant thereby.’”
