Back to book

بِهَذَا الْإِسْنَادِ عَنِ الْحَسَنِ عَنْ صَنْدَلٍ عَنْ هَارُونَ بْنِ خَارِجَهَ عَنْ أَبِی عَبْدِ اللَّهِ ع قَالَ: مَنْ قَرَأَ سُورَهَ الزُّمَرِ استحقها [اسْتَخَفَّهَا] مِنْ لِسَانِهِ أَعْطَاهُ اللَّهُ مِنْ شَرَفِ الدُّنْیَا وَ الْآخِرَهِ وَ أَعَزَّهُ بِلَا مَالٍ وَ لَا عَشِیرَهٍ حَتَّی یَهَابُهُ مَنْ یَرَاهُ وَ حَرَّمَ جَسَدَهُ عَلَی النَّارِ وَ بَنَی لَهُ فِی الْجَنَّهِ أَلْفَ مَدِینَهٍ فِی کُلِّ مَدِینَهٍ أَلْفُ قَصْرٍ فِی کُلِّ قَصْرٍ مِائَهُ حَوْرَاءَ وَ لَهُ مَعَ هَذَا عَیْنانِ تَجْرِیانِ وَ عَیْنانِ نَضَّاخَتانِ- وَ عَیْنَانِ مُدْهامَّتانِ وَ حُورٌ مَقْصُوراتٌ فِی الْخِیامِ- ذَواتا أَفْنانٍ وَ مِنْ کُلِّ فاکِهَهٍ زَوْجانِ


1. Imam Ja’far Sadiq (a.s.) says, “One who recites Surah Zumar and considers it easy to recite, the Almighty Allah would grant him prestige in this world and hereafter and he would be honored even without possessing wealth or a good family background. He would grant him honor in front of everyone. Fire would be prohibited on his body. A thousand cities would be built for him in Paradise and every city will have one thousand palaces and every palace will have one hundred Hoorul Ein. He would make two normal springs flow, two springs flow under the trees and two more green springs to flow for him. He would veil all of the Hoorul Ein. He would grant numerous bounties and fruits, each fruit having two forms.”
