حَدَّثَنِی مُحَمَّدُ بْنُ الْحَسَنِ قَالَ حَدَّثَنِی مُحَمَّدُ بْنُ الْحَسَنِ الصَّفَّارُ عَنْ أَحْمَدَ بْنِ مُحَمَّدٍ عَنِ الْحَسَنِ بْنِ مَحْبُوبٍ عَنْ زَیْدٍ الشَّحَّامِ قَالَ سَمِعْتُ أَبَا عَبْدِ اللَّهِ ع یَقُولُ مَنْ أَعَانَ أَخَاهُ الْمُؤْمِنَ اللَّهْفَانَ عِنْدَ جَهْدِهِ فَنَفَّسَ کُرْبَتَهُ وَ أَعَانَهُ عَلَی نَجَاحِ حَاجَتِهِ کَانَتْ لَهُ بِذَلِکَ اثْنَتَانِ وَ سَبْعُونَ رَحْمَهً لِأَفْزَاعِ یَوْمِ الْقِیَامَهِ وَ أَهْوَالِهِ.
