Back to book

حَدَّثَنِی مُحَمَّدُ بْنُ عَلِیٍّ مَاجِیلَوَیْهِ قَالَ حَدَّثَنِی مُحَمَّدُ بْنُ یَحْیَی الْعَطَّارُ عَنْ مُحَمَّدِ بْنِ أَحْمَدَ عَنْ أَبِی عَبْدِ اللَّهِ الرَّازِیِّ عَنِ الْحَسَنِ بْنِ عَلِیِّ بْنِ عُثْمَانَ عَنْ مُحَمَّدِ بْنِ سُلَیْمَانَ الْبَصْرِیِّ عَنْ دَاوُدَ الرَّقِّیِّ عَنِ الریان [الرَّبَابِ] امْرَأَتِهِ قَالَتْ اتَّخَذْتُ خَبِیصاً فَأَدْخَلْتُهُ إِلَی أَبِی عَبْدِ اللَّهِ ع وَ هُوَ یَأْکُلُ فَوَضَعْتُ الْخَبِیصَ بَیْنَ یَدَیْهِ وَ کَانَ یُلَقِّمُ أَصْحَابَهُ فَسَمِعْتُهُ یَقُولُ مَنْ لَقَّمَ مُؤْمِناً لُقْمَهَ حَلَاوَهٍ صَرَفَ اللَّهُ بِهَا عَنْهُ مَرَارَهَ یَوْمِ الْقِیَامَهِ.


1. Dawood Raqqi narrates that his wife Rabab said: I prepared a sweet dish of dates and took it to Imam Ja’far Sadiq (a.s.). He ate it himself as well as offered it to his companions. She heard him say, “One who offers a morsel of sweet to a believer, Allah will keep the bitterness of the Day of Judgment away from him.”
