Back to book

أَبِی ره قَالَ حَدَّثَنَا سَعْدُ بْنُ عَبْدِ اللَّهِ عَنْ یَعْقُوبَ بْنِ یَزِیدَ عَنْ مُحَمَّدِ بْنِ أَبِی عُمَیْرٍ عَنْ مُحَمَّدِ بْنِ حُمْرَانَ عَنْ أَبِی عَبْدِ اللَّهِ ع قَالَ: مَنْ قَالَ لَا إِلَهَ إِلَّا اللَّهُ مُخْلِصاً دَخَلَ الْجَنَّهَ وَ إِخْلَاصُهُ بِهَا أَنْ یَحْجُزَهُ لَا إِلَهَ إِلَّا اللَّهُ عَمَّا حَرَّمَ اللَّهُ.


1. My father (rah) said: it was narrated to us by Sa’d b. Abdillah from Ya’qub b. Yazid from Muhammad b. Abi ’Umayr from Muhammad b. Hamran from Abi Abdillah (a.s.) who said: “A person who recites Laa ilaaha illallaah with pure intention will enter Paradise and reciting Laa ilaaha illallaah with pure intention implies that he keeps away from that, which Allah has prohibited for him.”




حَدَّثَنِی مُحَمَّدُ بْنُ مُوسَی بْنِ الْمُتَوَکِّلِ قَالَ حَدَّثَنِی عَلِیُّ بْنُ الْحُسَیْنِ السَّعْدَآبَادِیُّ عَنْ أَحْمَدَ بْنِ أَبِی عَبْدِ اللَّهِ عَنِ الْحُسَیْنِ بْنِ مَحْبُوبٍ عَنْ أَبِی جَمِیلَهَ عَنْ جَابِرٍ عَنْ أَبِی جَعْفَرٍ ع قَالَ قَالَ رَسُولُ اللَّهِ ص أَتَانِی جَبْرَئِیلُ ع بَیْنَ الصَّفَا وَ الْمَرْوَهِ فَقَالَ یَا مُحَمَّدُ طُوبَی لِمَنْ قَالَ مِنْ أُمَّتِکَ لَا إِلَهَ إِلَّا اللَّهُ مُخْلِصاً.


2. The Messenger of Allah (s.a.w.s) says, “Jibraeel (a.s.) came to me while I was between Safa and Marwa and said, ‘Whoever from your Ummah recites Laa ilaaha illallaah with pure intention will go to Paradise’.”




أَبِی ره قَالَ حَدَّثَنِی سَعْدُ بْنُ عَبْدِ اللَّهِ عَنْ أَحْمَدَ بْنِ مُحَمَّدٍ وَ الْحَسَنِ بْنِ عَلِیٍّ الْکُوفِیِّ وَ إِبْرَاهِیمَ بْنِ هَاشِمٍ کُلِّهِمْ عَنِ الْحُسَیْنِ بْنِ سَیْفٍ عَنْ سُلَیْمَانَ بْنِ عُمَرَ عَنْ مُهَاجِرِ بْنِ الْحَسَنِ عَنْ زَیْدِ بْنِ أَرْقَمَ عَنِ النَّبِیِّ ص قَالَ: مَنْ قَالَ لَا إِلَهَ إِلَّا اللَّهُ مُخْلِصاً دَخَلَ الْجَنَّهَ وَ إِخْلَاصُهُ بِهَا أَنْ یَحْجُزَهُ لَا إِلَهَ إِلَّا اللَّهُ عَمَّا حَرَّمَ اللَّهُ.


3. My father (rah) said: it was narrated to me by Sa’d b. Abdillah from Ahmad b. Muhammad and al-Hassan b. Ali al-Kufi and Ibrahim b. Hashimall of themfrom al-Hussain b. Sayf from Sulayman b. Umar from Muhajir b. al-Hassan from Zayd b. Arqam from The Prophet (s.a.w.s.) who said: “A person who recites Laa ilaaha illallaah with pure intention will enter Paradise. And reciting it with pure intention implies that he keeps away from what has been prohibited by Allah.”




وَ بِهَذَا الْإِسْنَادِ عَنْ سُلَیْمَانَ بْنِ عُمَرَ قَالَ حَدَّثَنِی زَیْدُ بْنُ رَافِعٍ قَالَ حَدَّثَنِی زِرُّ بْنُ حُبَیْشٍ قَالَ سَمِعْتُ حُذَیْفَهَ یَقُولُ لَا یَزَالُ لَا إِلَهَ إِلَّا اللَّهُ تَرُدُّ غَضَبَ الرَّبِّ جَلَّ جَلَالُهُ عَنِ الْعِبَادِ مَا کَانُوا لَا یُبَالُونَ مَا انْتَقَصَ مِنْ دُنْیَاهُمْ إِذَا سَلِمَ دِینُهُمْ فَإِذَا کَانُوا لَا یُبَالُونَ مَا انْتَقَصَ مِنْ دِینِهِمْ إِذَا سَلِمَتْ دُنْیَاهُمْ ثُمَّ قَالُوهَا رُدَّتْ عَلَیْهِمْ وَ قِیلَ کَذَبْتُمْ وَ لَسْتُمْ بِهَا صَادِقِینَ.


4. Huzaifa says that Allah is never angry on one who recites Laa ilaaha illallaah properly. However, this is applicable till he sacrifices this world for the sake of religion. If religion is sacrificed for the sake of this world he will be told that you have turned towards the world. It will be further said that they are liars and they do not speak the truth.
