Back to book

أَبِی ره قَالَ حَدَّثَنِی سَعْدُ بْنُ عَبْدِ اللَّهِ عَنِ الْهَیْثَمِ بْنِ أَبِی مَسْرُوقٍ النَّهْدِیِّ عَنِ الْحَسَنِ بْنِ مَحْبُوبٍ عَنْ عَبْدِ اللَّهِ بْنِ غَالِبٍ عَنْ سَعْدٍ الْإِسْکَافِیِّ عَنْ أَبِی جَعْفَرٍ ع قَالَ: أَیُّمَا مُؤْمِنٍ غَسَّلَ مُؤْمِناً فَقَالَ إِذَا قَلَّبَهُ- اللَّهُمَّ هَذَا بَدَنُ عَبْدِکَ الْمُؤْمِنِ وَ قَدْ أَخْرَجْتَ رُوحَهُ مِنْهُ وَ فَرَّقْتَ بَیْنَهُمَا فَعَفْوَکَ عَفْوَکَ إِلَّا غَفَرَ اللَّهُ لَهُ ذُنُوبَ سَنَهٍ إِلَّا الْکَبَائِرَ.


1. My father (rah) said: it was narrated to me by Sa’d b. Abdillah from al-Haytham b. Abi Masruq al-Hindi from al-Hassan b. Mahbub from Abdillah b. Ghalib from Sa’d al-Iskafi from Abi Ja’far (a.s.) who said: “If a believer gives ghusl to a dead believer and recites: Allaahumma haadhaa badanu a’bdikal mu-mini wa qad akharajta rooh’ahu minhu wa farraqta bainahumaa fa-a’fwaka a’fwak Allah forgives the sins committed by him in one year except for the greater sins.”




حَدَّثَنِی مُحَمَّدُ بْنُ عَلِیٍّ مَاجِیلَوَیْهِ عَنْ عَلِیِّ بْنِ إِبْرَاهِیمَ بْنِ هَاشِمٍ عَنْ أَبِیهِ عَنْ إِسْمَاعِیلَ بْنِ مَرَّارٍ عَنْ یُونُسَ بْنِ عَبْدِ الرَّحْمَنِ عَنْ عَبْدِ اللَّهِ بْنِ سِنَانٍ عَنْ أَبِی عَبْدِ اللَّهِ ع قَالَ: مَنْ غَسَّلَ مَیِّتاً مُؤْمِناً فَأَدَّی فِیهِ الْأَمَانَهَ غَفَرَ اللَّهُ لَهُ قَالَ وَ کَیْفَ یُؤَدِّی فِیهِ الْأَمَانَهَ قَالَ لَا یُخْبِرُ بِمَا یَرَی.


2. It was narrated to me by Muhammad b. Ali Majluwayh from Ali b. Ibrahim b. Hashim from his father from Ismail b. Marrar from Yunis b. Abdulrahman from Abdillah b. Sinan from Abi Abdillah (a.s.) who said: “One who gives ghusl to a body of a believer and remain trustworthy with him, Allah will forgive all his sins.” Someone asked, “How should one be trustworthy?” Imam (a.s.) answered, “One should not tell to others what he sees on the body.”
