Back to book

أَبِی ره قَالَ حَدَّثَنِی سَعْدُ بْنُ عَبْدِ اللَّهِ عَنْ أَحْمَدَ بْنِ مُحَمَّدٍ عَنِ الْحَسَنِ بْنِ مَحْبُوبٍ عَنْ عَبْدِ اللَّهِ بْنِ مَرْحُومٍ عَنِ ابْنِ سِنَانٍ عَنْ أَبِی عَبْدِ اللَّهِ ع قَالَ: إِذَا دَخَلَ الْمُؤْمِنُ من قَبْرَهُ کَانَتِ الصَّلَاهُ عَنْ یَمِینِهِ وَ الزَّکَاهُ عَنْ یَسَارِهِ وَ الْبِرُّ مُظِلٌّ عَلَیْهِ وَ ینتحی [یَتَنَحَّی] الصَّبْرُ نَاحِیَهً قَالَ فَإِذَا دَخَلَ عَلَیْهِ الْمَلَکَانِ اللَّذَانِ یَلِیَانِ مُسَاءَلَتَهُ قَالَ الصَّبْرُ لِلصَّلَاهِ وَ الزَّکَاهِ وَ الْبِرِّ دُونَکُمْ صَاحِبَکُمْ فَإِنْ عَجَزْتُمْ عَنْهُ فَإِنَّا دُونَهُ.


1. My father (rah) said: it was narrated to me by Sa’d b. Abdillah from Ahmad b. Muhammad from al-Hassan b. Mahbub from Abdillah b. Marhum from Ibn Sinan from Abi Abdillah (a.s.) who said: “When a believer enters his grave, the Salaat is to his right and Zakat to his left. Good deeds shade him and patience stands at one end. When the two angels enter to question him, Patience tells Salaat, Zakat and good deeds: ‘Protect your friend. If you fail to do so, I will protect him.”
