Back to book

أَبِی ره قَالَ حَدَّثَنِی عَبْدُ اللَّهِ بْنُ جَعْفَرٍ عَنْ إِبْرَاهِیمَ بْنِ مَهْزِیَارَ عَنْ أَخِیهِ عَلِیِّ بْنِ مَهْزِیَارَ عَنِ ابْنِ أَبِی عُمَیْرٍ عَنْ مَنْصُورِ بْنِ یُونُسَ عَنْ مُحَمَّدِ بْنِ مَرْوَانَ عَنْ أَبِی عَبْدِ اللَّهِ ع قَالَ: مَا مِنْ شَیْ ءٍ إِلَّا وَ لَهُ کَیْلٌ وَ وَزْنٌ إِلَّا الدُّمُوعَ فَإِنَّ الْقَطْرَهَ مِنْهَا تُطْفِئُ بِحَاراً مِنْ نَارٍ وَ إِذَا اغْرَوْرَقَتِ الْعَیْنُ بِمَائِهَا لَمْ یَرْهَقْ وَجْهَهُ قَتَرٌ وَ لا ذِلَّهٌ فَإِذَا فَاضَتْ حَرَّمَهُ اللَّهُ عَلَی النَّارِ وَ لَوْ أَنَّ بَاکِیاً بَکَی فِی أُمَّهٍ لَرُحِمُوا.


1. My father (rah) said: it was narrated to me by Abdillah b. Ja’far from Ibrahim b. Mahziyar from his brother Ali b. Mahziyar from Ibn Abi ’Umayr from Mansur b. Yunis from Muhammad b. Marwan from Abi Abdillah (a.s.) who said: “There is nothing but that it has a measure and a weight except the tears. For indeed a drop of it can extinguish a sea of fire. And when ones eyes are filled with tears, his face will never see poverty or disgrace. And when tears are flowing, Allah prohibits the fire of Hell on it and even if one person is weeping the whole community is dealt with mercy (by Allah).”




حَدَّثَنِی الْحُسَیْنُ بْنُ أَحْمَدَ عَنْ أَبِیهِ عَنْ عُبَیْدِ اللَّهِ بْنِ مُحَمَّدِ بْنِ عِیسَی عَنْ أَبِیهِ عَنْ عَبْدِ اللَّهِ [بْنِ] الْمُغِیرَهِ عَنْ إِسْمَاعِیلَ بْنِ أَبِی زِیَادٍ عَنِ الصَّادِقِ جَعْفَرِ بْنِ مُحَمَّدٍ عَنْ أَبِیهِ ع قَالَ قَالَ رَسُولُ اللَّهِ ص طُوبَی لِصُورَهٍ نَظَرَ اللَّهُ إِلَیْهَا تَبْکِی عَلَی ذَنْبٍ مِنْ خَشْیَهِ اللَّهِ عَزَّ وَ جَلَّ لَمْ یَطَّلِعْ إِلَی ذَلِکَ الذَّنْبِ غَیْرُهُ.


2. Imam Ja’far Sadiq (a.s.) narrates from his predecessors that the Holy Prophet (s.a.w.s.) said, “Tooba (congratulations) for that face which Allah sees mercifully and that person who is weeping over his sins in fear of Allah, the Mighty and Sublime and none else is aware of this sin.”
