Back to book

أَبِی ره قَالَ حَدَّثَنِی سَعْدُ بْنُ عَبْدِ اللَّهِ عَنْ أَحْمَدَ بْنِ أَبِی عَبْدِ اللَّهِ الْبَرْقِیِّ عَنْ أَبِیهِ عَنْ وَهْبِ بْنِ وَهْبٍ عَنْ جَعْفَرِ بْنِ مُحَمَّدٍ عَنْ أَبِیهِ عَنْ جَدِّهِ ع قَالَ قَالَ رَسُولُ اللَّهِ ص إِنَّ جَبْرَئِیلَ ع أَخْبَرَنِی بِأَمْرٍ فَقَرَّتْ بِهِ عَیْنِی وَ فَرِحَ بِهِ قَلْبِی قَالَ یَا مُحَمَّدُ مَنْ غَزَا غَزْوَهً فِی سَبِیلِ اللَّهِ مِنْ أُمَّتِکَ فَمَا أَصَابَتْهُ قَطْرَهٌ مِنَ السَّمَاءِ أَوْ صُدَاعٌ إِلَّا کَانَ لَهُ شَهَادَهٌ یَوْمَ الْقِیَامَهِ.


1. Imam Ja’far Sadiq (a.s.) narrates from his predecessors that the Holy Prophet (s.a.w.s.) said that Jibraeel (a.s.) told him, “O Muhammad (s.a.w.s.)! One who from your Ummah participates in a battle in the way of Allah, each and every drop of rain falling from the sky will bear witness on the Day of Judgment to the trouble he had to take.”




وَ بِهَذَا الْإِسْنَادِ قَالَ قَالَ رَسُولُ اللَّهِ ص لِلْجَنَّهِ بَابٌ یُقَالُ لَهُ بَابُ الْمُجَاهِدِینَ یَمْضُونَ إِلَیْهِ فَإِذَا هُوَ مَفْتُوحٌ وَ الْمُجَاهِدُونَ مُتَقَلِّدُونَ سُیُوفَهُمْ وَ الْجَمْعُ فِی الْمَوْقِفِ وَ الْمَلَائِکَهُ تَتَرَحَّبُ بِهِمْ فَمَنْ تَرَکَ الْجِهَادَ أَلْبَسَهُ اللَّهُ ذُلًّا- وَ فَقْراً فِی مَعِیشَتِهِ وَ مَحْقاً فِی دِینِهِ إِنَّ اللَّهَ تَبَارَکَ وَ تَعَالَی أَعَزَّ أُمَّتِی بِسَنَابِکِ خَیْلِهَا وَ مَرَاکِزِ رِمَاحِهَا.


2. The Holy Prophet (s.a.w.s.) said, “One of the doors of Paradise is called ‘the door of soldiers’. All the people will have to wait while the soldiers will enter through this door with swords hanging from their necks. Angels will be congratulating them. Those who keep away from Jihad in the world, Allah will give them disgrace and poverty in this world and make them wear the dress of destruction in the hereafter. Surely the Almighty Allah has kept the greatness of my Ummah in the hooves of horses and points of the lances.”




وَ بِهَذَا الْإِسْنَادِ قَالَ قَالَ رَسُولُ اللَّهِ ص مَنْ بَلَّغَ رِسَالَهَ غَازٍ کَمَنْ أَعْتَقَ رَقَبَهً وَ هُوَ شَرِیکُهُ فِی بَابِ غَزْوَتِهِ.


3. The Holy Prophet (s.a.w.s.) said, “One who takes a letter of a warrior to its destination, will be like one who has freed a slave and will get the reward of participating in that Jihad.”




حَدَّثَنِی مُحَمَّدُ بْنُ الْحَسَنِ قَالَ حَدَّثَنِی مُحَمَّدُ بْنُ الْحَسَنِ الصَّفَّارُ عَنِ الْعَبَّاسِ بْنِ مَعْرُوفٍ عَنْ أَبِی هَمَّامٍ عَنْ مُحَمَّدِ بْنِ غَزْوَانَ عَنِ السَّکُونِیِّ عَنْ جَعْفَرِ بْنِ مُحَمَّدٍ عَنْ أَبِیهِ عَنْ آبَائِهِ ع قَالَ قَالَ رَسُولُ اللَّهِ ص خُیُولُ الْغُزَاهِ هِیَ خُیُولُهُمْ فِی الْجَنَّهِ.


4. Imam Ja’far Sadiq (a.s.) narrates from his father that the Holy Prophet (s.a.w.s.) said, “The horses of warriors are from Paradise.”




حَدَّثَنِی مُحَمَّدُ بْنُ عَلِیٍّ مَاجِیلَوَیْهِ قَالَ حَدَّثَنَا مُحَمَّدُ بْنُ یَحْیَی الْعَطَّارُ عَنْ مُحَمَّدِ بْنِ إِسْمَاعِیلَ عَنْ عَلِیِّ بْنِ الْحَکَمِ عَنْ عُمَرَ بْنِ أَبَانٍ عَنْ أَبِی عَبْدِ اللَّهِ عَنْ آبَائِهِ ع قَالَ قَالَ رَسُولُ اللَّهِ ص الْخَیْرُ کُلُّهُ فِی السَّیْفِ وَ تَحْتَ ظِلِّ السَّیْفِ وَ لَا یُقِیمُ النَّاسَ إِلَّا السَّیْفُ وَ السُّیُوفُ مَقَالِیدُ الْجَنَّهِ وَ النَّارِ.


5. Imam Ja’far Sadiq (a.s.) narrates from his predecessors that the Holy Prophet (s.a.w.s.) said, “All the good lies in the sword and its shade. Nothing except sword can improve people. Sword is the key of Paradise and Hell.”
