Back to book

1ـ عِدَّةٌ مِنْ أَصْحَابِنَا عَنْ أَحْمَدَ بْنِ مُحَمَّدٍ وَسَهْلِ بْنِ زِيَادٍ جَمِيعاً عَنِ ابْنِ مَحْبُوبٍ عَنْ جَمِيلِ بْنِ دَرَّاجٍ عَنْ وَلِيدِ بْنِ صَبِيحٍ قَالَ شَكَوْتُ إِلَى أَبِي عَبْدِ الله (عَلَيهِ السَّلام) دَيْناً لِي عَلَى أُنَاسٍ فَقَالَ قُلِ اللهمَّ لَحْظَةً مِنْ لَحَظَاتِكَ تَيَسَّرْ عَلَى غُرَمَائِي بِهَا الْقَضَاءَ وَتَيَسَّرْ لِي بِهَا الإقْتِضَاءَ إِنَّكَ عَلَى كُلِّ شَيْ‏ءٍ قَدِيرٌ.


1. A number of our people have narrated from Ahmad ibn Muhammad and Sahl ibn Ziyad all from ibn Mahbub from Jamil ibn Darraj from Walid ibn Sabih who has said the following: “Once I complain to abu ‘Abd Allah (a.s.) about debts people owed to me.’ The Imam told me to say, ‘O Lord, provide an opportunity of Your opportunities in which it will be possible for my borrowers to pay and for me to receive payment. You have power over all things.’”

2ـ الْحُسَيْنُ بْنُ مُحَمَّدٍ الأشْعَرِيُّ عَنْ مُعَلَّى بْنِ مُحَمَّدٍ عَنِ الْحَسَنِ بْنِ عَلِيٍّ الْوَشَّاءِ عَنْ حَمَّادِ بْنِ عُثْمَانَ عَنْ أَبِي عَبْدِ الله (عَلَيهِ السَّلام) قَالَ أَتَى النَّبِيَّ (صَلَّى اللهُ عَلَيْهِ وآلِه) رَجُلٌ فَقَالَ يَا نَبِيَّ الله الْغَالِبُ عَلَيَّ الدَّيْنُ وَوَسْوَسَةُ الصَّدْرِ فَقَالَ لَهُ النَّبِيُّ (صَلَّى اللهُ عَلَيْهِ وآلِه) قُلْ تَوَكَّلْتُ عَلَى الْحَيِّ الَّذِي لا يَمُوتُ وَالْحَمْدُ لله الَّذِي لَمْ يَتَّخِذْ صَاحِبَةً وَلا وَلَداً وَلَمْ يَكُنْ لَهُ شَرِيكٌ فِي الْمُلْكِ وَلَمْ يَكُنْ لَهُ وَلِيٌّ مِنَ الذُّلِّ وَكَبِّرْهُ تَكْبِيراً قَالَ فَصَبَرَ الرَّجُلُ مَا شَاءَ الله ثُمَّ مَرَّ عَلَى النَّبِيِّ (صَلَّى اللهُ عَلَيْهِ وآلِه) فَهَتَفَ بِهِ فَقَالَ مَا صَنَعْتَ فَقَالَ أَدْمَنْتُ مَا قُلْتَ لِي يَا رَسُولَ الله فَقَضَى الله دَيْنِي وَأَذْهَبَ وَسْوَسَةَ صَدْرِي.


2. Al-Husayn ibn Muhammad al-Ash’ari has narrated from Mu’alla ibn Muhammad from al-Hassan ibn Ali al-Washsha’ from Hammad ibn ‘Uthman from abu ‘Abd Allah (a.s.) who has said the following: “Once a man came to the Holy Prophet and said, ‘O Prophet of Allah, debts and insinuation of the chest (mind) have overcome me.’ The Holy Prophet told him to say, ‘I place my trust in Allah, the Living, Who does not die, all praise belongs to Allah, Who has not taken any companions, or children. Who has no partner in His kingdom or supporter against defeat, and you must say that Allah is greater than can be described. ’ “The Imam said that he thereafter passed by the Holy Prophet who asked him how was he doing. He replied, ‘I continued practicing what you had preached, O the Messenger of Allah, Allah enabled me to pay my debts and removed the insinuation from my chest.’”

3ـ مُحَمَّدُ بْنُ يَحْيَى عَنْ أَحْمَدَ بْنِ مُحَمَّدٍ عَنْ مُحَمَّدِ بْنِ سِنَانٍ عَنِ ابْنِ مُسْكَانَ عَنْ أَبِي حَمْزَةَ الثُّمَالِيِّ عَنْ أَبِي عَبْدِ الله (عَلَيهِ السَّلام) قَالَ جَاءَ رَجُلٌ إِلَى النَّبِيِّ (صَلَّى اللهُ عَلَيْهِ وآلِه) فَقَالَ يَا رَسُولَ الله قَدْ لَقِيتُ شِدَّةً مِنْ وَسْوَسَةِ الصَّدْرِ وَأَنَا رَجُلٌ مَدِينٌ مُعِيلٌ مُحْوِجٌ فَقَالَ لَهُ كَرِّرْ هَذِهِ الْكَلِمَاتِ تَوَكَّلْتُ عَلَى الْحَيِّ الَّذِي لا يَمُوتُ وَالْحَمْدُ لله الَّذِي لَمْ يَتَّخِذْ صَاحِبَةً وَلا وَلَداً وَلَمْ يَكُنْ لَهُ شَرِيكٌ فِي الْمُلْكِ وَلَمْ يَكُنْ لَهُ وَلِيٌّ مِنَ الذُّلِّ وَكَبِّرْهُ تَكْبِيراً فَلَمْ يَلْبَثْ أَنْ جَاءَهُ فَقَالَ أَذْهَبَ الله عَنِّي وَسْوَسَةَ صَدْرِي وَقَضَى عَنِّي دَيْنِي وَوَسَّعَ عَلَيَّ رِزْقِي.


3. Muhammad ibn Yahya has narrated from Ahmad ibn Muhammad from Muhammad ibn Sinan from Muskan from abu Hamza al-Thumali from abu ‘Abd Allah (a.s.) who has said the following: “Once a man came to the Holy Prophet and said, ‘O Messenger of Allah, I face a strong insinuation in my chest (mind) and I am a man with a family, indebted and needy.’ The Messenger of Allah told him to repeat these words: ‘I place my trust in the Living One, Who does not die, all praise belongs to Allah, Who has not taken any companion, or children. Who has no partner in His Kingdom, and no guardian against defeat and you must say that He is greater than can be described.’ Shortly thereafter he came and said, ‘Allah has removed the insinuation from my chest, enabled me to pay my debts and has increased my sustenance.’”

4. Ali ibn Ibrahim has narrated from his father from ‘Abd Allah ibn al-Mughirah from Musa ibn Bakr who has said the following: “Abu Ibrahim (a.s.) had written the following for me on a piece of paper: ‘O Lord, return to all of such of Your creatures whose usurped belongings may exist with me, in small or large amounts, with ease and good health and for whatever of such items that my ability, body, certainty, my soul and belongings are not sufficient, enough and able, pay and fulfill them on my behalf from the abundance with You, through Your generosity. Do not leave on me anything (debts) that You will pay off from my good deeds, O the Most Beneficent, of the beneficent ones. I testify that no one deserves to be worshipped except Allah, Who has no partner, and I testify that Muhammad is His servant and messenger that religion is as He has sanctioned that Islam is as He has described that the book is as He has revealed, that the word is as He has spoken, that Allah is the clear Truth. Allah has mentioned Muhammad and his family with words of goodness and has greeted Muhammad and his family with the greeting of peace.’”
