1ـ مُحَمَّدُ بْنُ يَحْيَى عَنْ أَحْمَدَ بْنِ مُحَمَّدِ بْنِ عِيسَى عَنْ عَلِيِّ بْنِ فَضَّالٍ عَنْ عَلِيِّ بْنِ عُقْبَةَ عَنْ أَبِي حَمْزَةَ عَنْ أَبِي عَبْدِ الله (عَلَيهِ السَّلام) قَالَ مَنْ زَارَ أَخَاهُ لله لا لِغَيْرِهِ الْتِمَاسَ مَوْعِدِ الله وَتَنَجُّزَ مَا عِنْدَ الله وَكَّلَ الله بِهِ سَبْعِينَ أَلْفَ مَلَكٍ يُنَادُونَهُ أَلا طِبْتَ وَطَابَتْ لَكَ الْجَنَّةُ.


1. Muhammad ibn Yahya has narrated from Ahmad ibn Muhammad ibn ‘Isa from Ali ibn Faddal from Ali ibn ‘Aqaba from abu Hamza from abu ‘Abd Allah (a.s.) who has said the following: “Whoever visits his brother (in belief) for the sake of Allah and for no other reason, seeking thereby the promise of Allah, and to achieve what is with Allah, Allah will appoint seventy thousand angels who applaud, ‘How beautiful is what you have done and how beautiful is paradise (for you).”’

2. It is narrated from him (narrator of the Hadith above) from Ali ibn al-Nu’man from ibn Muskan from Khaythamah who has said the following: “Once I went to see abu Ja’far (a.s.) to say farewell. He said, ‘O Khaythamah, convey our greeting of peace to whoever of our followers you may see and advise them to be pious before Allah, the Most Great, that their rich ones look after their poor ones, the stronger ones look after their weaker ones, that the living attend the funeral of those who have just died, that they must meet each other in their homes; their meeting as such is life for our cause. May Allah bless the man who preserves our cause. O Khaythamah, inform our followers that we cannot make them independent of Allah in anything without good deeds and that they will not benefit from our Divine Authority without ( al-Wari ’) refraining from worldly attractions (sins). Of the people who regret on the Day of Judgment, most intensely will be the ones who describe justice but do not practice it (explain the right belief but do not establish one).”’

3. Ali ibn Ibrahim has narrated from his father from Hammad ibn ‘Isa from Ibrahim ibn ‘Umar al-Yamani from Jabir from abu Ja’far (a.s.) who has said the following: “The Messenger of Allah has said, ‘Jibril spoke to me that Allah, the Most Majestic, the Most Holy, sent an angel to earth and the angel began walking until he came to a door where a man was asking for permission from the people of the house. The angel asked him, ‘What do you need from the owner of this house?’ He replied, ‘He is a Muslim brother (in belief). I have come to visit him for the sake of Allah, the Most Blessed, the Most High.’ The angel then asked, ‘Is that the only reason for your visit?’ The man said, ‘Nothing else has brought me here but that.’ The angel then said, ‘I am the Messenger of Allah to you and He sends you the greeting of peace and says, ‘I have made paradise obligatory for you.’ The angel then said, ‘Allah, the Most Majestic, the Most Holy, says, ‘Whoever of the Muslims visits an other Muslim, in fact, has not visited him but he has visited Me and his reward from Me is paradise.’”

You are the visitor of Allah and the delegate to the Most Beneficent one.” This happens until he comes home.’ Yasyr then asked, ‘May Allah keep my soul in service for your cause, is it so even if the place of visitation is far away?’ The Imam said, ‘Yes, O Yasyr, even if the place of visitation is at a distance of one year’s journey; Allah is generous and the angles are a great many. They escort him until he reaches his home.’”
