Back to book

1ـ عِدَّةٌ مِنْ أَصْحَابِنَا عَنْ أَحْمَدَ بْنِ مُحَمَّدِ بْنِ خَالِدٍ عَنْ أَبِيهِ عَنْ خَلَفِ بْنِ حَمَّادٍ عَنْ رِبْعِيِّ بْنِ عَبْدِ الله بْنِ الْجَارُودِ الْهُذَلِيِّ عَنِ الْفُضَيْلِ بْنِ يَسَارٍ قَالَ قَالَ أَبُو عَبْدِ الله (عَلَيهِ السَّلام) مَا مِنْ مَجْلِسٍ يَجْتَمِعُ فِيهِ أَبْرَارٌ وَفُجَّارٌ فَيَقُومُونَ عَلَى غَيْرِ ذِكْرِ الله عَزَّ وَجَلَّ إِلا كَانَ حَسْرَةً عَلَيْهِمْ يَوْمَ الْقِيَامَةِ.


1. A number of our people have narrated from Ahmad ibn Muhammad ibn Khalid from his father from Khalaf ibn Hammad from Rib’I ibn ‘Abd Allah ibn al-Jarud al-Hudhalli from al-Fudayl ibnYasar who has said the following: “Abu ‘Abd Allah (a.s.) has said, ‘If any gathering attended by virtuous and non-virtuous people disperses without mentioning the name of Allah, the Most Majestic, the Most Holy, it (gathering) will become a regret for them on the Day of Judgment.’”

2ـ حُمَيْدُ بْنُ زِيَادٍ عَنِ الْحَسَنِ بْنِ مُحَمَّدِ بْنِ سَمَاعَةَ عَنْ وُهَيْبِ بْنِ حَفْصٍ عَنْ أَبِي بَصِيرٍ عَنْ أَبِي عَبْدِ الله (عَلَيهِ السَّلام) قَالَ مَا اجْتَمَعَ فِي مَجْلِسٍ قَوْمٌ لَمْ يَذْكُرُوا الله عَزَّ وَجَلَّ وَلَمْ يَذْكُرُونَا إِلا كَانَ ذَلِكَ الْمَجْلِسُ حَسْرَةً عَلَيْهِمْ يَوْمَ الْقِيَامَةِ ثُمَّ قَالَ قَالَ أَبُو جَعْفَرٍ (عَلَيهِ السَّلام) إِنَّ ذِكْرَنَا مِنْ ذِكْرِ الله وَذِكْرِ عَدُوِّنَا مِنْ ذِكْرِ الشَّيْطَانِ.


2. Humayd ibn Ziyad has narrated from al-Hassan ibn Muhammad ibn Sama’a from Wahab ibn Hafs from abu Basir from abu ‘Abd Allah (a.s.) who has said the following: “If a people gather together in a place and do not make any mention of Allah, the Most Majestic, the Most Holy, or of us, that gathering will become a regret for them on the Day of Judgment.’ The Imam then said, ‘Abu Ja’far (a.s.) has said, “To speak of us is to speak of Allah and speaking of our enemy is speaking of Satan.’”

3ـ وَبِإِسْنَادِهِ قَالَ قَالَ أَبُو جَعْفَرٍ (عَلَيهِ السَّلام) مَنْ أَرَادَ أَنْ يَكْتَالَ بِالْمِكْيَالِ الأوْفَى فَلْيَقُلْ إِذَا أَرَادَ أَنْ يَقُومَ مِنْ مَجْلِسِهِ سُبْحَانَ رَبِّكَ رَبِّ الْعِزَّةِ عَمَّا يَصِفُونَ وَسَلامٌ عَلَى الْمُرْسَلِينَ وَالْحَمْدُ لله رَبِّ الْعَالَمِينَ.


3. Through the same chain of narrators it is narrated from abu Ja’far (a.s.) who has said the following: “Whoever likes to receive his reward in a correct measurement, when leaving a gathering should say, ‘Glory belongs to your Lord, the Lord Who is by far more Majestic than what they (certain people) call Him to be. May peace be upon the Messengers of Allah. All praise belongs to Allah, Lord of the worlds.’”

4. Muhammad ibn Yahya has narrated from Ahmad ibn Muhammad ibn ‘Isa from ibn Mahbub from ‘Abd Allah ibn Sinan from abu Hamza al-Thumali from abu Ja’far (a.s.) who has said the following: “It is written in the Torah that is not changed that once Moses asked his Lord, ‘O Lord, are You near me so I may whisper to You or far from me so I call You?’ Allah, the Most Majestic, the Most Holy, sent him inspiration that said, ‘O Moses, I am in a face-to-face meeting with anyone who speaks of Me.’ Moses then said, ‘Who is in Your hiding (shelter and protection) on the day when there is no hiding except Your’s?’ He (Allah) then said, ‘Those who remember Me 1 then remember them. Those who love just because of Me, I love them. It is because of these beloved people that when I will to afflict the people of the earth with evil I remember them (beloved people) and spare them (people of earth) through them (beloved people).’”
