1. A number of our people have narrated from Ahmad ibn Muhammad from Muhammad ibn Ali from Muhammad ibn al-Fudayl from abu Hamza who has said the following: “I heard abu Ja’far (a.s.) saying, ‘There is nothing greater in rewards than testifying to the truth and believing in the meaning of the testimony of belief in Allah: ‘No one deserves to be worshipped except Allah’, Allah, the Most Majestic, the Most Holy, Who has no equal and no one shares Him in any issue. ’”

2ـ عَنْهُ عَنِ الْفُضَيْلِ بْنِ عَبْدِ الْوَهَّابِ عَنْ إِسْحَاقَ بْنِ عُبَيْدِ الله عَنْ عُبَيْدِ الله بْنِ الْوَلِيدِ الْوَصَّافِيِّ رَفَعَهُ قَالَ قَالَ رَسُولُ الله (صَلَّى اللهُ عَلَيْهِ وآلِه) مَنْ قَالَ لا إِلَهَ إِلا الله غُرِسَتْ لَهُ شَجَرَةٌ فِي الْجَنَّةِ مِنْ يَاقُوتَةٍ حَمْرَاءَ مَنْبِتُهَا فِي مِسْكٍ أَبْيَضَ أَحْلَى مِنَ الْعَسَلِ وَأَشَدَّ بَيَاضاً مِنَ الثَّلْجِ وَأَطْيَبَ رِيحاً مِنَ الْمِسْكِ فِيهَا أَمْثَالُ ثُدِيِّ الأبْكَارِ تَعْلُو عَنْ سَبْعِينَ حُلَّةً وَقَالَ رَسُولُ الله (صَلَّى اللهُ عَلَيْهِ وآلِه) خَيْرُ الْعِبَادَةِ قَوْلُ لا إِلَهَ إِلا الله وَقَالَ خَيْرُ الْعِبَادَةِ الإسْتِغْفَارُ وَذَلِكَ قَوْلُ الله عَزَّ وَجَلَّ فِي كِتَابِهِ فَاعْلَمْ أَنَّهُ لا إِلهَ إِلا الله وَاسْتَغْفِرْ لِذَنْبِكَ.


2. It is narrated from him (narrator of the Hadith above) from al-Fudayl ibn ‘Abd al-Wahhab from Ishaq ibn ‘Abd Allah from ‘Ubayd Allah ibn al-Walid al- Wassafi in a marfu ’ manner who has said the following: ‘‘The Messenger of Allah has said, ‘Whoever (sincerely) says, ‘No one deserves to be worshipped except Allah’, a tree is planted for him in paradise, from red ruby that grows out of white musk, sweeter than honey, whiter than snow, of a fragrance better than musk, in which there is something like the breast of virgins, protruding from behind seventy dresses.’ ‘‘The Messenger of Allah has said, ‘The best worship is the words: ‘No one deserves to be worshipped except Allah.’ ‘‘He also has said, ‘The best worship is pleading before Allah for forgiveness, due to the words of Allah, the Most Majestic, the Most Holy, in His book: ‘(you must) know that no one deserves to be worshipped except Allah. Ask forgiveness for your sins. .. .’”(47:19)
