أَبِی ره قَالَ حَدَّثَنِی عَبْدُ اللَّهِ بْنُ جَعْفَرٍ الْحِمْیَرِیُّ عَنْ إِبْرَاهِیمَ بْنِ مَهْزِیَارَ عَنْ أَخِیهِ عَلِیِّ بْنِ مَهْزِیَارَ عَنْ عَمْرِو بْنِ شِمْرٍ عَنِ الْفَضْلِ عَنْ جَابِرٍ عَنْ أَبِی جَعْفَرٍ ع قَالَ قَالَ رَسُولُ اللَّهِ ص إِنَّ الْمَلَکَ یَنْزِلُ بِصَحِیفَهٍ أَوَّلَ النَّهَارِ وَ أَوَّلَ اللَّیْلِ فَیَکْتُبُ فِیهَا عَمَلَ ابْنِ آدَمَ فَاعْمَلُوا فِی أَوَّلِهَا خَیْراً وَ فِی آخِرِهَا خَیْراً فَإِنَّ اللَّهَ یَغْفِرُ لَکُمْ فِیمَا بَیْنَ ذَلِکَ إِنْ شَاءَ اللَّهُ فَإِنَّ اللَّهَ عَزَّ وَ جَلَّ یَقُولُ فَاذْکُرُونِی أَذْکُرْکُمْ وَ یَقُولُ وَ لَذِکْرُ اللَّهِ أَکْبَرُ

1. Imam Muhammad Baqir (a.s.) narrates that the Holy Prophet (s.a.w.s.) said, “Surely an angel descends carrying a scroll in the beginning of day and night and writes the deeds of men. Hence one should do good deeds in the beginning of day and night. God willing, you will be forgiven during the other times also if Allah wills, because Allah, the Mighty and Sublime says: ‘Therefore remember Me, I will remember you’. And He says: ‘and certainly the remembrance of Allah is the greatest’.”
