أَبِی ره قَالَ حَدَّثَنِی سَعْدُ بْنُ عَبْدِ اللَّهِ عَنْ أَحْمَدَ بْنِ هِلَالٍ عَنْ مُحَمَّدِ بْنِ عِیسَی الْأَرْمَنِیِّ عَنْ أَبِی عِمْرَانَ الْخَرَّاطِ عَنْ بِشْرٍ الْأَوْزَاعِیِّ عَنْ جَعْفَرِ بْنِ مُحَمَّدٍ عَنْ أَبِیهِ ع قَالَ: مَنْ شَهِدَ أَنْ لَا إِلَهَ إِلَّا اللَّهُ وَ لَمْ یَشْهَدْ أَنَّ مُحَمَّداً رَسُولُ اللَّهِ ص کُتِبَ لَهُ عَشْرُ حَسَنَاتٍ فَإِنْ شَهِدَ أَنَّ مُحَمَّداً رَسُولُ اللَّهِ کُتِبَ لَهُ ألفی [أَلْفَا] أَلْفِ حَسَنَهٍ.


1. My father (rah) said: it was narrated to me by Sa’d b. Abdillah from Ahmad b. Hilal from Muhammad b. Isa al-Armani from Abi ’Imran al-Kharrat from Bishr al-Awzaa’i from Ja’far b. Muhammad from his father (a.s.) who said: “One who bears witness saying, Laa ilaaha illallaah and does not say Muhammadur rasoolullaah gets ten rewards. However, if he says Laa ilaaha illallaah as well as Muhammadur rasoolullaah he would get a million rewards.”




أَبِی ره قَالَ حَدَّثَنَا سَعْدُ بْنُ عَبْدِ اللَّهِ عَنْ أَحْمَدَ بْنِ مُحَمَّدٍ وَ إِبْرَاهِیمَ بْنِ هَاشِمٍ وَ الْحَسَنِ بْنِ عَلِیٍّ الْکُوفِیِّ عَنِ الْحُسَیْنِ بْنِ سَیْفٍ عَنْ أَبِیهِ عَنْ أَبِی حَازِمٍ الْمُزَنِیِّ عَنْ سَهْلِ بْنِ سَعْدٍ الْأَنْصَارِیِّ قَالَ: سَأَلْتُ رَسُولَ اللَّهِ ص عَنْ قَوْلِ اللَّهِ عَزَّ وَ جَلَّ- وَ ما کُنْتَ بِجانِبِ الطُّورِ إِذْ نادَیْنا قَالَ کَتَبَ اللَّهُ عَزَّ وَ جَلَّ کِتَاباً قَبْلَ أَنْ یَخْلُقَ الْخَلْقَ بِأَلْفَیْ عَامٍ فِی وَرَقِ آسٍ أَنْبَتَهُ ثُمَّ وَضَعَهَا عَلَی الْعَرْشِ ثُمَّ نَادَی یَا أُمَّهَ مُحَمَّدٍ إِنَّ رَحْمَتِی سَبَقَتْ غَضَبِی أَعْطَیْتُکُمْ قَبْلَ أَنْ تَسْأَلُونِی وَ غَفَرْتُ لَکُمْ قَبْلَ أَنْ تَسْتَغْفِرُونِی فَمَنْ لَقِیَنِی مِنْکُمْ یَشْهَدُ أَنْ لَا إِلَهَ إِلَّا أَنَا وَ أَنَّ مُحَمَّداً عَبْدِی وَ رَسُولِی أَدْخَلْتُهُ الْجَنَّهَ بِرَحْمَتِی.


2. My father (rah) said: it was narrated to us by Sa’d b. Abdillah from Ahmad b. Muhammad and Ibrahim b. Hashim and al-Hassan b. Ali al-Kufi from al-Hussain b. Sayf from his father from Abi Hazim al-Muzani from Sahl b. Sa’d al-Ansari who said: “I asked the meaning of this verse Wa maa kunta bijaanibit’ t’oori idh naadainaa from the Messenger of Allah (s.a.w.s.).” The Holy Prophet (s.a.w.s.) replied, “Two thousand years before the creation of man, the Almighty Allah wrote this verse on a dry leaf and hung it in the heaven and then gave a call, ‘O Ummah of Muhammad! My mercy precedes My anger. I grant you before you ask. I forgive you before you repent. If one of you meets Me and bears witness that there is no Lord except Me and that Muhammad is My servant and messenger I will make him enter Paradise through My mercy’.”
