Back to book

حَدَّثَنِی مُحَمَّدُ بْنُ الْحَسَنِ قَالَ أَخْبَرَنِی عَبْدُ اللَّهِ بْنُ جَعْفَرٍ عَنْ هَارُونَ بْنِ مُسْلِمٍ عَنْ مَسْعَدَهَ بْنِ زِیَادٍ عَنْ جَعْفَرِ بْنِ مُحَمَّدٍ عَنْ أَبِیهِ عَنْ أَمِیرِ الْمُؤْمِنِینَ ع أَنَّهُ قَالَ إِنَّ رَسُولَ اللَّهِ ص قَالَ: رَحِمَ اللَّهُ وَالِداً أَعَانَ وَلَدَهُ عَلَی بِرِّهِ رَحِمَ اللَّهُ جَاراً أَعَانَ جَارَهُ عَلَی بِرِّهِ رَحِمَ اللَّهُ رَفِیقاً أَعَانَ رَفِیقَهُ عَلَی بِرِّهِ رَحِمَ اللَّهُ خَلِیطاً أَعَانَ خَلِیطَهُ عَلَی بِرِّهِ رَحِمَ اللَّهُ رَجُلًا أَعَانَ سُلْطَانَهُ عَلَی بِرِّهِ.


1. Imam Ja’far Sadiq (a.s.) narrates from his predecessors, who narrate from Amirul Momineen (a.s.), who narrates that the Holy Prophet (s.a.w.s.) said, “Allah showers mercy on the father who helps his son in doing good. He showers mercy on a person who helps his neighbor in doing good. One who helps his friend in doing good Allah showers mercy on the former. Similarly one who helps his companion in doing good, Allah showers mercy on the former too. Also one who helps his master in doing good, Allah showers mercy on that person.”
