1ـ عَلِيُّ بْنُ إِبْرَاهِيمَ عَنْ أَبِيهِ عَنِ ابْنِ أَبِي عُمَيْرٍ عَنْ هِشَامِ بْنِ سَالِمٍ عَنْ أَبِي عَبْدِ الله (عَلَيهِ السَّلام) قَالَ إِنَّ الله عَزَّ وَجَلَّ يَقُولُ مَنْ شُغِلَ بِذِكْرِي عَنْ مَسْأَلَتِي أَعْطَيْتُهُ أَفْضَلَ مَا أُعْطِي مَنْ سَأَلَنِي.


1. Ali ibn Ibrahim has narrated from his father from ibn abu ‘Umayr from Hisham ibn Salim from abu ‘Abd Allah (a.s.) who has said the following: “Allah, the Most Majestic, the Most Holy, says, ‘One who is occupied in speaking of Me instead of asking Me for help, I will grant him better than what 1 am to grant to one who asks Me for help.’”

2ـ عِدَّةٌ مِنْ أَصْحَابِنَا عَنْ أَحْمَدَ بْنِ مُحَمَّدٍ عَنْ مُحَمَّدِ بْنِ إِسْمَاعِيلَ عَنْ مَنْصُورِ بْنِ يُونُسَ عَنْ هَارُونَ بْنِ خَارِجَةَ عَنْ أَبِي عَبْدِ الله (عَلَيهِ السَّلام) قَالَ إِنَّ الْعَبْدَ لَيَكُونُ لَهُ الْحَاجَةُ إِلَى الله عَزَّ وَجَلَّ فَيَبْدَأُ بِالثَّنَاءِ عَلَى الله وَالصَّلاةِ عَلَى مُحَمَّدٍ وَآلِ مُحَمَّدٍ حَتَّى يَنْسَى حَاجَتَهُ فَيَقْضِيهَا الله لَهُ مِنْ غَيْرِ أَنْ يَسْأَلَهُ إِيَّاهَا.


2. A number of our people have narrated from Ahmad ibn Muhammad from Muhammad ibn Isma’Il from Mansur ibn Yunus from Harun ibn Kharijah from abu ‘Abd Allah (a.s.) who has said the following: “A servant (of Allah) may need help from Allah, the Most Majestic, the Most Holy, and he begins to praise Allah and ask from Allah al-Salat (favors) for the Holy Prophet and his family until he forgets to ask for help but Allah, without his asking, grants him the help that he was to ask for.”
