18. The Intercession and the ones who would be (extracted) coming out from the Fire

Back to book

حدّثنا الحسين بن سعد قال : حدّثنا فضالة ، عن القاسم بن بريد ، عن محمد بن مسلم : قال : سألت أبا عبد الله (عليه السلام) عن الجهنّميين فقال : ( كان أبو جعفر (عليه السلام) يقول : يخرجون منها فيُنتهى بهم إلى عينٍ عند باب الجنّة تُسمّى عين الحيوان ، فينضح عليهم من مائها فينبتون كما ينبت الزرع لحومهم وجلودهم وشعورهم )


1. Al Husayn Bin Sa’ad narrated to us saying, ‘Fazala narrated to us, from Al Qasim Bin Bureyd, from Muhammad Bin Muslim who said, ‘I asked Abu Abdullah (asws) about the Dwellers of Hell, and he (asws) said: ‘Abu Ja’far (asws) was saying: ‘They would be extracted from it, and they would be ending up with them to a spring at the door of the Paradise, named as ‘The Spring of Haywaan’. So they would be sprinkled upon from its waters, and they would be growing just as the vegetation grows, their flesh, and their skins, and their hair’.




فضالة بن أيّوب ، عن عمر بن أبان ، عن أديم أخي أيّوب ، عن حمران قال : قلت لأبي عبد الله (عليه السلام) : إنّهم يقولون : لا تعجبون من قوم يزعمون أنّ الله يخرج قوماً من النار فيجعلهم من أصحاب الجنّة مع أوليائه ؟ فقال : ( أما يقرؤن قول الله تبارك وتعالى : ( وَمِنْ دُونِهِمَا جَنَّتَانِ ) أنّها جنّة دون جنّة ، ونار دون نار ، إنّهم لا يساكنون أولياء الله وقال : ( إنّ ) بينهما والله منزلة ( منزلتين ) ولكن لا أستطيع أن أتكلّم ، إنّ أمرهم لأضيق من الحلقة إن القائم لو قام بدأ بهؤلاء )


2. Fazalat Bin Ayoub, from Umar Bin Aban, from Adeym, a brother of Ayoub, from Humran who said, ‘I said to Abu Abdullah (asws), ‘They (people) are saying, ‘Do not be astonished from a people who are claiming that Allah (azwj) would Extract a people from the Fire, and He (azwj) would Make them to be companions of the Paradise along with His (azwj) friends?’ So he (asws) said: ‘But, are you not reading the Words of Allah (azwj) Blessed and High [55:62] And besides these two are two (other) Gardens ? It is a Garden besides the Garden (Paradise), and there is a Fire besides the Fire (Hell). They will not be dwelling with the friends of Allah (azwj)’. And he (asws) said: ‘By Allah (azwj)! In between the two there is a level (two levels), but I (asws) do not have the leeway to speak. Their matter is tighter than a loop. Al-Qaim (asws), when he (asws) arises, would begin with them’.




فضالة ، عن عمر بن أبان قال : سألت أبا عبد الله (عليه السلام) عمّن ( أ ) دخل في النار ثمّ أُخرج منها ، ثمّ أُدخل الجنّة فقال : ( إن شئتَ حدّثتُك بما كان يقول فيه أبي قال : إنّ ( ا ) ناساً يخرجون من النار بعدما كانوا حمماً ( حميماً ) فينطلق بهم إلى نهر عند باب الجنّة يُقال له : الحيوان ، فينضح عليهم من مائه فتنبت لحومهم ودمائهم و شعورهم )


3. Fazalat, from Umar Bin Aban who said, ‘I asked Abu Abdullah (asws) about, ‘The one entering into the Fire, would then be coming out from it, then entering the Paradise?’ So he (asws) said: ‘If I (asws) so desired to, I (asws) would narrated to you with what my (asws) father (asws) was saying with regards to it. A people would be coming out from the Fire after having been in boiling water, and they would be going with them to a river by the door of the Paradise, called Al-Haywaan. So they would be sprinkled upon from its waters, and they would grow their flesh, and their blood, and their hair’.




فضالة ، عن عمر بن أبان قال : ( قال ) سمعت عبداً صالحاً يقول في الجهنّميين : إنّهم يدخلون النار بذنوبهم ويخرجون بعفو الله


4. Fazalat, from Umar Bin Aban who said, ‘I heard Abu Salih (asws) (7 (th) Imam (asws)) saying regarding the dwellers of Hell: ‘They would be entering the Fire due to their sins, and they would be exiting due to Pardon of Allah (azwj)’.




عثمان بن عيسى ، عن ابن مسكان ، عن أبي بصير قال : سمعت أبا جعفر ( عليه السلام ) يقول : ( إنّ قوماً يحرقون في ( با ) النار حتى إذا صاروا ( حميماً ) حمماً أدركتهم الشفاعة ، قال : فينطلق بهم إلى نهر يخرج من رشح أهل الجنّة ، فيغتسلون فيه فتنبت لحومهم ودمائهم ، وتذهب عنهم قشف النار ويدخلون الجنة فيسمون الجهنميون ( الجهنميين خ ل ) فينادون بأجمعهم : اللّهمّ أذهب عنّا هذا الاسم قال : فيذهب عنهم ثمّ قال : يا أبا بصير : إنّ أعداء على هم خالدون في النار لا تدركهم الشفاعة )


5. Usman Bin Isa, from Ibn Muskan, from Abu Baseer who said, ‘I heard Abu Ja’far (asws) saying: ‘A people would be burning in the Fire until when they come to be in boiling water, the Intercession would across them. So they would be taken to a river until after they come to be boiling water, the intercession would come across them. So they would go with them to a river coming our from the perspiration of the people of the Paradise. So they would be washing in it, and their flesh and their blood would grow, and the misery of the Fire would go away from them. Thus, they would be named as ‘Dwellers of Hell’. So they would call out altogether, ‘O Allah (azwj)! Remove this name from us’. So it would be Removed from them. Then he (asws) said: ‘O Abu Baseer! The enemies of Ali (asws), they would be eternally in the Fire as the Intercession would not come across them’.




فضالة ، عن ربعي ، عن الفضيل ، عن أبي جعفر (عليه السلام) قال : ( إنّ آخر مَن يخرج من النار لَرجل يُقال له : همام ( هام ) ينادى فيها عمرا : يا حنّان يا منّان )


6. Fazalat, from Rabi’e, from Al Fuzayl, (It has been narrated) from Abu Ja’far (asws) having said: ‘The last one to come out from the Fire would be a man called Haam. He would call out therein for ages, ‘O Tender! O Lenient!’




محمد بن أبي عمير ، عن عبد الرحمن بن الحجاج قال : قلت لأبي عبد الله (عليه السلام) : حديث يروونه الناس فقال : ( إنّه ليس كما يقولون ، ثمّ قال : قال رسول الله ـ صلّى الله عليه وآله ـ : إنّ آخر عبدٍ يؤمر به إلى النار فإذا أمر به إلى النار التفت فيقول ( الله عز وجل ) الجبار : ( أ ) عجلوه فإذا أتى به قال له : ( عبدي ) لم التفت ؟ فيقول : يا رب ما كان ظني بك هذا فيقول ( الله جل جلاله : عبدي ) وما كان ظنك بي ؟ فيقول ( يا رب ) كان ظنى بك ان تغفر لي خطيئتي وتسكنني ( وتدخلني خ ل ) جنتك فيقول ( الله ) الجبار جل وعلا : يا ملائكتي وعزتي ( والآئي وبلائي ) وجلالي وعلوي وارتفاع مكاني ما ظن بي عبدي ساعة من ( حياته ) خيراً ( ا ) قط ولو ظنّ بي ساعة من ( حياته ) خير ( اً ) ما روّعته بالنار ، أجيزوا ( له ) كذبه وأدخلوه الجنّة ، ثمّ قال رسول الله ـ صلّى الله عليه وآله ـ ( أبو عبد الله ـ عليه السلام ـ ) : ليس من عبدٍ ظنّ ( ما ظنّ عبد ) بالله خيراً إلاّ كان ( الله ) عند ظنّه به ، ولا ظنّ به سوءاً إلاّ كان ( الله ) عند ظنّه به ، وذلك قوله تعالى ( عزّ وجلّ ) ( وَذَلِكُمْ ظَنُّكُمُ الَّذِي ظَنَنْتُمْ بِرَبِّكُمْ أَرْدَاكُمْ فَأَصْبَحْتُمْ مِنَ الْخَاسِرِينَ )


7. Muhammad Bin Abu Umeyr, from Abdul Rahman Bin Al Hajjaj who said, ‘I said to Abu Abdullah (asws), ‘There is a Hadeeth the people are reporting’. So he (asws) said: ‘It isn’t as they are saying it to be’. Then he (asws) said: ‘Rasool-Allah (saww) said: ‘The last servant would be Commanded with to the Fire. So when he is Commanded with to the Fire, he would turn around, and Allah (azwj), Mighty and Majestic, the Compeller would be Saying: “Are you hastening him?” So when they come with him, He (azwj) would Say to him: “My (azwj) servant! Why did you turn around?’ So he would be saying, ‘O Lord (azwj)! I did not think this with You (azwj)’. He (azwj) would Say: “And what was your thoughts about Me (azwj)?” He would say, ‘O Lord (azwj)! My thoughts with You (azwj) were that You (azwj) would be Forgiving me my sins and Settling me (Enter me) in Your (azwj) Paradise’. So Allah (azwj), the Compelled, Majestic and Mighty would be Saying: “O My (azwj) Angels! By My (azwj) Might, and My (azwj) Loftiness, and My (azwj) Fortitude, and My (azwj) Majesty, and My (azwj) Exaltedness, and the Loftiness of My (azwj) Position! What My (azwj) servant did not think of Me (azwj) for a moment from his life with goodness at all, and had he thought of Me (azwj) for a moment from his life with goodness, I (azwj) would not have Terrified him with the Fire. I (azwj) shall Allow for him his lie and Enter him into the Paradise”. Then Rasool-Allah (saww) said (Abu Abdullah (asws)): ‘There isn’t a servant who thinks (what the servants thinks) good with Allah (azwj), except that Allah (azwj) would be as his thoughts were with Him (azwj), and he would not think evil with Him (azwj), except that Allah (azwj) would be as his thoughts were with Him (azwj). And these are the Words of the Exalted Mighty and Majestic [41:23] And that was your conjecture which you conjectured about your Lord that has ruined you so are you are one of the losers ’.




محمد بن أبي عمير ( رفعه ) عن أبي عبد الله (عليه السلام) قال : ( يؤتى بعبدٍ يوم القيامة ليست له حسنة ، فيُقال له : اذكر وتذكّر هل لك حسنة ؟ قال : فيذكر فيقول : يا ربّ مالي من حسنة إلاّ أنّ عبدك فلاناً المؤمن مرّ بي فطلب منّي ماءاً يتوضّأ به فيصلي به فأعطيته ، قال : فيقول الله تبارك وتعالى : أدخلوا عبدي الجنّة )


8. Muhammad Bin Abu Umeyr, raising it, (It has been narrated) from Abu Abdullah (asws) having said: ‘They would be coming with a servant on the Day of Judgment, there not being a good deed for him, and it would be said to him: ‘Remember and mentioned, is there a good deed for you?’ So he would remember and he would be saying, ‘O Lord (azwj)! There is no good deed for me except that Your (azwj) servant, so and so, the Momin, passed by me and sought some water from me to perform Wuzu (Ablution) with it, so that he could pray Salat with it. So I gave it to him’. So Allah (azwj) Blessed and High would be Saying: “Enter My (azwj) servant into the Paradise!”’.




محمد بن أبى عمير ، عن عبد الرحمان بن الحجّاج عن الأحول ، عن حمران قال : سمعت أبا جعفر (عليه السلام) يقول : ( إنّ الكفّار والمشركين ( يعيّرون ) يرون أهل التوحيد في النار فيقولون : ما نرى توحيدكم أغنى عنكم شيئاً ، وما أنتم ونحن إلاّ سواء قال : فيأنف لهم الرب عز وجل فيقول للملائكة : اشفعوا ، فيشفعون لمَن شاء الله ، ويقول للمؤمنين : مثل ذلك حتى إذا لم يبق أحد ( إلاّ ) تبلغه الشفاعة قال تبارك وتعالى : أنا أرحم الراحمين اخرجوا برحمتي ؛ فيخرجون كما يخرج الفراش قال : ثمّ قال أبو جعفر (عليه السلام) : ثمّ مُدّت العمد وأعمدت ( وأصمدت ) عليهم وكان والله الخلود )


9. Muhammad Bin Abu Umeyr, from Abdul Rahman Bin Al Hajjaj, from Al Ahowl, from Humran who said, ‘I heard Abu Ja’far (asws) saying: ‘The disbelievers and the Polytheists would be faulting, seeing the people of Oneness (Tawheed) being in the Fire, and they would be saying, ‘We are not seeing your (professing of) Oneness (Tawheed) having benefitted you of anything, and you and us are the same’’. He (asws) said: ‘So the Lord (azwj), Mighty and Majestic would Disdain (that) for them, and the Angels would be saying: ‘Intercede (for them )!’ So they would be Intercede for, the one whom Allah (azwj) so Desires, and the Momineen would be saying similar to that until there does not remain a single one except the Intercession would reach him. Allah (azwj) Blessed and High would Say: “I (azwj) am the most Merciful of the merciful ones! I (azwj) hereby Take them out by My (azwj) Mercy”. So they would be coming out just as they come out of the bed’. He (the narrator) said, ‘Then Abu Ja’far (asws) said: ‘Then a pillar would be extended upon them, and then, by Allah (azwj), they would become eternal’.




النضر بن سويد ، عن درست ، عن أبي جعفر الأحول ، عن حمران قال : قلت لأبي عبد الله (عليه السلام) : إنّه بلغنا أنّه يأتي على جهنّم حتى يصطفي أبوابها ؟ فقال : ( لا والله ، إنّه الخلود قلت : ( خَالِدِينَ فِيهَا مَا دَامَتِ السَّمَوَاتُ وَالأَرْضُ إِلاّ مَا شَاءَ رَبُّكَ ) ؟ فقال : هذه في الذين يخرجون من النار )


10. Al Naza Bin Suweyd, from Dorost, from Abu Ja’far Al Ahowl, from Humran who said, ‘I said to Abu Abdullah (asws), ‘It reached us that he (the Hell-dweller) would come to Hell until he would choose its doors (for exiting)’. So he (asws) said: ‘No , by Allah (azwj)! It is eternal’. I said, ‘(What about) [11: 107] Abiding therein so long as the skies and the earth endure, except what your Lord so Desires?’ So he (asws) said : ‘This is regarding those who would be coming out from the Fire’.




الحسن بن محبوب ، عن أبي حمزة ، عن أبي إسحاق قال : قال علي (عليه السلام) : ( لأُحدّثنّكم بحديثٍ يحقّ على كل مؤمنٍ أن يعيه فحدّثنا به غداةً ونسيناه عشيّةً ، قال : فرجعنا إليه فقلنا له : الحديث الذي حدّثتنا به غداةً نسيناه وقلت : هو حق على كل مؤمن أن يعيه فأعده علينا ! فقال : إنّه ما من مسلمٍ يذنب ذنباً فيعفو الله عنه في الدنيا ، إلاّ كان أجلّ وأكرم من أن يعود عليه بعقوبة في الآخرة وقد أجّله في الدنيا ، وتلا هذه الآية : ( وَمَا أَصَابَكُمْ مِنْ مُصِيبَةٍ فَبِمَا كَسَبَتْ أَيْدِيكُمْ وَيَعْفُو عَنْ كَثِيرٍ )


11. Al Hassan Bin Mahboub, from Abu Hamza, from Abu Is’haq who said, ‘Ali (asws) said: ‘I (asws) shall narrated to you all with a Hadeeth which is rightful upon every Momin that he retains it’. So he (asws) narrated to us in the morning and we forgot it in the evening. So we returned to him (asws), and we said to him (asws), ‘The Hadeeth which you (asws) narrated with in the morning, we forgot it, and you (asws) said it is rightful upon every Momin that he retains it’. So he (asws) repeated it upon us, and he (asws) said : ‘It is – there is none from a Muslim who commits a sin, so Allah (azwj) Forgives him in the world, except that He (azwj) is more Majestic and more Benevolent that for Him (azwj) to Repeat the Punishment upon him in the Hereafter, and He (azwj) has already Done it in t he world’. And he (asws) recited this Verse [42:30] And whatever affliction befalls you, it is on account of what your hands have wrought, and (yet) He Pardons most (of your faults)’.




فضيل بن عثمان ، عن أبي عبيدة الحذّاء قال : قلت لأبي جعفر (عليه السلام) : جُعلت فداك ، ادع الله لي فإنّ لي ذنوباً كثيرة فقال : ( مه يا أبا عبيدة ، لا يكون الشيطان عوناً على نفسك إنّ عفو الله لا يشبهه شيء )


12. Fazeyl Bin Usman, from Abu Ubeyda Al Haza’a who said, ‘I said to Abu Ja’far (asws), ‘May I be sacrificed for you (asws)! Supplicate to Allah (azwj) for me, for there are a lot of sins for me’. So he (asws) said to him: ‘ Shh! O Ubeyda! Do not let the Satan (la) assisted upon yourself. The Forgiveness of Allah (azwj) is such that nothing can resemble it’.
