It is narrated that Imam Ja’far Sadiq (a.s.) said, “One who goes to a brother at the time of his difficulty and solves his problem and helps him in fulfilling his wishes, seventy-two blessings of Allah will be sent down on him for this deed. Out of which, one will be to improve his worldly life and the remaining seventy-one will be a reserved against fear of Qiyamat.”
