429. Reward of shaking hands with a believing brother

Back to book

وَ بِهَذَا الْإِسْنَادِ عَنْ بَکْرِ بْنِ إِسْحَاقَ بْنِ عَمَّارٍ عَنْ أَبِی عَبْدِ اللَّهِ ع قَالَ: إِنَّ اللَّهَ لَا یَقْدِرُ أَحَدٌ قَدْرَهُ فَکَمَا لَا یَقْدِرُ أَحَدٌ قَدْرَهُ کَذَلِکَ لَا یَقْدِرُ أَحَدٌ قَدْرَ نَبِیِّهِ ص فَکَذَلِکَ لَا یَقْدِرُ أَحَدٌ قَدْرَ الْمُؤْمِنِ إِنَّهُ لَیَلْقَی أَخَاهُ فَیُصَافِحُهُ فَیَنْظُرُ اللَّهُ إِلَیْهِمَا وَ الذُّنُوبُ تَحَاتُّ عَنْ وُجُوهِهِمَا حَتَّی یَتَفَرَّقَا کَمَا تَحُطُّ الرِّیحُ الشَّدِیدَهُ الْوَرَقَ عَنِ الشَّجَرِ.


1. And from the previous chain from Bakr b. Ishaq b. Ammar from Abi Abdillah (a.s.) who said: “One who is not aware of the status of Allah is not aware of the status of the Holy Prophet (s.a.w.s.) also. And one who is not aware of the status of the Holy Prophet (s.a.w.s.) is not aware of the status of a believer also. If someone sees a believing brother and shakes hands with him, sins are wiped off from their faces like dry leaves fall off a tree due to wind, till they (the believers) separate from one another.”
