437. Reward of having fever

Back to book

أَبِی ره قَالَ حَدَّثَنِی أَحْمَدُ بْنُ إِدْرِیسَ عَنْ مُحَمَّدِ بْنِ أَحْمَدَ عَنِ الْهَیْثَمِ بْنِ أَبِی مَسْرُوقٍ عَنْ شَیْخٍ مِنْ أَصْحَابِنَا یُکَنَّی بِأَبِی عَبْدِ اللَّهِ عَنْ رَجُلٍ عَنْ أَبِی عَبْدِ اللَّهِ ع قَالَ قَالَ رَسُولُ اللَّهِ ص الْحُمَّی رَائِدُ الْمَوْتِ وَ سِجْنُ اللَّهِ فِی أَرْضِهِ وَ فَوْرُهَا وَ حَرُّهَا مِنْ جَهَنَّمَ وَ هِیَ حَظُّ کُلِّ مُؤْمِنٍ مِنَ النَّارِ.


1. Imam Ja’far Sadiq (a.s.) narrates that the Holy Prophet (s.a.w.s.) said, “Fever is a spy of death and a prison of Allah on earth. High fever is from Hell and a part of fire for the believer.”




حَدَّثَنِی مُحَمَّدُ بْنُ الْحَسَنِ عَنْ مُحَمَّدِ بْنِ الْحَسَنِ الصَّفَّارِ عَنْ عَلِیِّ بْنِ مُحَمَّدٍ الْقَاشَانِیِّ عَنِ الْقَاسِمِ بْنِ مُحَمَّدٍ عَنْ سُلَیْمَانَ بْنِ دَاوُدَ عَنْ سُفْیَانَ بْنِ عُیَیْنَهَ عَنِ الزُّهْرِیِّ عَنْ عَلِیِّ بْنِ الْحُسَیْنِ ع قَالَ: نِعْمَ الْوَجَعُ الْحُمَّی تُعْطِی کُلَّ عُضْوٍ قِسْطَهُ مِنَ الْبَلَاءِ وَ لَا خَیْرَ فِیمَنْ لَا یُبْتَلَی.


2. It was narrated to me by Muhammad b. al-Hassan from Muhammad b. al-Hassan al-Saffar from Ali b. Muhammad al-Qashani from al-Qasim b. Muhammad from Sulayman b. Dawud from Sufyan b. U’yaynah from al-Zuhri from Ali b. al-Hussain (a.s.) who said: “Fever is a good disease. It gives a part of suffering to each and every part of body. Not getting involved in it has no good.”




حَدَّثَنِی الْحُسَیْنُ بْنُ أَحْمَدَ عَنْ أَبِیهِ عَنْ مُحَمَّدِ بْنِ أَحْمَدَ قَالَ حَدَّثَنِی یُوسُفُ بْنُ إِسْمَاعِیلَ بِإِسْنَادٍ لَهُ قَالَ: إِنَّ الْمُؤْمِنَ إِذَا حُمَّ حُمَّی وَاحِدَهً تَنَاثَرَتِ الذُّنُوبُ مِنْهُ کَوَرَقِ الشَّجَرِ فَإِنْ أَنَّ عَلَی فِرَاشِهِ فَأَنِینُهُ تَسْبِیحٌ وَ صِیَاحُهُ تَهْلِیلٌ وَ تَقَلُّبُهُ عَلَی فِرَاشِهِ کَمَنْ یَضْرِبُ بِسَیْفِهِ فِی سَبِیلِ اللَّهِ فَإِنْ أَقْبَلَ یَعْبُدُ اللَّهَ بَیْنَ إِخْوَانِهِ وَ أَصْحَابِهِ کَانَ مَغْفُوراً لَهُ فَطُوبَی لَهُ إِنْ تَابَ وَ وَیْلٌ لَهُ إِنْ عَادَ وَ الْعَافِیَهُ أَحَبُّ إِلَیْنَا.


3. It was narrated to me by al-Hussain b. Ahmad from his father from Muhammad b. Ahmad who said it was narrated to me by Yusif b. Ismail through his chain to him who said: “If a believer has fever once, his sins are destroyed like dry leaves fall off in the wind. His cries on his bed are like Tasbih and moans like praising Allah. His turning left and right is like fighting with sword in the way of Allah. If he worships Allah along with his brothers and friends, he will be forgiven. If he repents, he is indeed fortunate and if he breaks repentance, he is ill-fated. Any way, we prefer his well being and salvation.”
