حَدَّثَنِی مُحَمَّدُ بْنُ الْحَسَنِ قَالَ حَدَّثَنِی مُحَمَّدُ بْنُ الْحَسَنِ الصَّفَّارُ عَنِ الْحَسَنِ بْنِ عَلِیٍّ عَنِ الْعَبَّاسِ بْنِ عَامِرٍ عَنْ أَحْمَدَ بْنِ رِزْقِ اللَّهِ عَنْ یَحْیَی بْنِ الْعَلَاءِ عَنْ جَابِرٍ عَنْ أَبِی جَعْفَرٍ ع قَالَ: إِنَّ عَبْداً مَکَثَ فِی النَّارِ سَبْعِینَ خَرِیفاً وَ الْخَرِیفُ سَبْعُونَ سَنَهً قَالَ ثُمَّ إِنَّهُ سَأَلَ اللَّهَ بِحَقِّ مُحَمَّدٍ وَ أَهْلِ بَیْتِهِ لَمَّا رَحِمْتَنِی فَأَوْحَی اللَّهُ عَزَّ وَ جَلَّ إِلَی جَبْرَئِیلَ أَنِ اهْبِطْ إِلَی عَبْدِی وَ أَخْرِجْهُ قَالَ یَا رَبِّ کَیْفَ لِی بِالْهُبُوطِ فِی النَّارِ قَالَ عَزَّ وَ جَلَّ إِنِّی أَمَرْتُهَا أَنْ تَکُونَ عَلَیْکَ بَرْداً وَ سَلَاماً قَالَ یَا رَبِّ فَأَعْلِمْنِی بِمَوْضِعِهِ قَالَ إِنَّهُ فِی جُبٍّ فِی سِجِّیلٍ قَالَ فَهَبَطَ جَبْرَئِیلُ عَلَی النَّارِ عَلَی وَجْهِهِ فَأَخْرَجَهُ فَقَالَ اللَّهُ عَزَّ وَ جَلَّ یَا عَبْدِی کَمْ لَبِثْتَ فِی النَّارِ قَالَ مَا أُحْصِی یَا رَبِّ فَقَالَ لَهُ وَ عِزَّتِی لَوْ لَا مَا سَأَلْتَنِی بِهِ لَأَطَلْتُ هَوَانَکَ فِی النَّارِ وَ لَکِنِّی حَتَمْتُ عَلَی نَفْسِی أَلَّا یَسْأَلَنِی عَبْدٌ بِحَقِّ مُحَمَّدٍ وَ أَهْلِ بَیْتِهِ إِلَّا غَفَرْتُ لَهُ مَا کَانَ بَیْنِی وَ بَیْنَهُ وَ قَدْ غَفَرْتُ لَکَ الْیَوْمَ.


1. It was narrated to me by Muhammad b. al-Hassan who said it was narrated to me by Muhammad b. al-Hassan al-Saffar from al-Hassan b. Ali from al-Abbas b. ’Amir from Ahmad b. Rizq-Allah from Yahya b. al-’Ala from Jabir from Abi Ja’far (a.s.) who said: ‘O Lord! Have mercy on me for the sake of Muhammad (s.a.w.s.) and his progeny’ Allah will order Jibraeel (a.s.) to go down and grant salvation to him. Jibraeel (a.s.) will ask, ‘How should I get down in fire?’ Allah will say: I have ordered it to remain cool for you and you will not be harmed. Jibraeel (a.s.) will ask, ‘O Lord! Tell me where is that servant of Yours?’ Allah will say that he is in the well of Sijjil. Jibraeel (a.s.) will go there and remove him from fire. Allah will ask, ‘O slave of Mine! For how long did you remain there?’ He will reply, ‘O Lord! It is not possible for me to estimate it’. Allah will swear by His Honor and say: I would have kept you in Hell in the same state if you hadn’t prayed to Me in this way. I have made it obligatory for Myself to forgive any number of sins of one who supplicates in the name of Muhammad (s.a.w.s.) and his progeny just like I forgave you this day.”
