Back to book

أَبِی ره قَالَ حَدَّثَنِی عَبْدُ اللَّهِ بْنُ جَعْفَرٍ الْحِمْیَرِیُّ عَنْ أَحْمَدَ بْنِ مُحَمَّدِ بْنِ عِیسَی عَنْ عَلِیِّ بْنِ سَیْفٍ عَنْ أَخِیهِ الْحُسَیْنِ عَنْ أَبِیهِ سَیْفِ بْنِ عَمِیرَهَ عَنْ عَمْرِو بْنِ شِمْرٍ عَنْ جَابِرٍ عَنْ أَبِی جَعْفَرٍ مُحَمَّدِ بْنِ عَلِیٍّ ع قَالَ: مَنْ قَدَّمَ أَوْلَاداً یَحْتَسِبُهُمْ عِنْدَ اللَّهِ حَجَبُوهُ مِنَ النَّارِ بِإِذْنِ اللَّهِ عَزَّ وَ جَلَّ.


1. My father (rah) said: it was narrated to me by Abdillah b. Ja’far al-Himyari from Ahmad b. Muhammad b. Isa from Ali b. Sayf from his brother al-Hussain from his father Sayf b. ’Umayra from ’Amru b. Shimr from Jabir from Abi Ja’far Muhammad b. Ali (a.s.) who said: “If a few children of a person die and if he/she hopes for reward in turn those children will act as a shield in front of the fire of Hell for that person.”




وَ بِهَذَا الْإِسْنَادِ عَنْ سَیْفِ بْنِ عَمِیرَهَ عَنْ عَبْدِ الْحَمِیدِ بْنِ بَهْرَامَ عَنْ شمر [شَهْرِ] بْنِ خوشب [حَوْشَبَ] عَنْ عَمْرِو بْنِ عَنْبَسَهَ السُّلَمِیِّ قَالَ سَمِعْتُ رَسُولَ اللَّهِ ص یَقُولُ أَیُّمَا رَجُلٍ قَدَّمَ ثَلَاثَهَ أَوْلَادٍ لَمْ یَبْلُغُوا الْحِنْثَ أَوِ امْرَأَهٍ قَدَّمَتْ ثَلَاثَهَ أَوْلَادٍ فَهُمْ حُجَّابٌ یَسْتُرُونَهُ مِنَ النَّارِ.


2. It is narrated that the Holy Prophet (s.a.w.s.) said, “If three children of a person die before reaching puberty or if three children of a woman pass away from this world, these children will act as a shield in front of the fire of Hell for that person.”




وَ بِهَذَا الْإِسْنَادِ عَنْ سَیْفِ بْنِ عَمِیرَهَ عَنْ شُعَیْبِ بْنِ سَوَّارٍ عَنِ الْأَحْنَفِ بْنِ قَیْسٍ عَنْ أَبِی ذَرٍّ الْغِفَارِیِّ ره قَالَ: مَا مِنْ مُسْلِمَیْنِ یُقَدِّمَانِ عَلَیْهِمَا ثَلَاثَهَ أَوْلَادٍ لَمْ یَبْغُوا الْحِنْثَ إِلَّا أَدْخَلَهُمُ اللَّهُ الْجَنَّهَ بِفَضْلِ رَحْمَتِهِ.


3. Abu Zar Ghiffari (r.a.) said, “If three children pass away from the world, Allah will make the parents enter Paradise with His grace and mercy.”




حَدَّثَنِی مُحَمَّدُ بْنُ الْحَسَنِ قَالَ حَدَّثَنَا مُحَمَّدُ بْنُ الْحَسَنِ الصَّفَّارُ عَنْ أَحْمَدَ بْنِ الْحُسَیْنِ بْنِ سَعِیدٍ عَنْ عَلِیِّ بْنِ مُیَسِّرٍ عَنْ أَبِیهِ عَنْ أَبِی عَبْدِ اللَّهِ ع قَالَ: وَلَدٌ وَاحِدٌ یُقَدِّمُهُ الرَّجُلُ أَفْضَلُ مِنْ سَبْعِینَ ولد [وَلَداً] یَبْقَوْنَ بَعْدَهُ یُدْرِکُونَ الْقَائِمَ.


4. Imam Ja’far Sadiq (a.s.) said, “If a child of a person passes away from this world, he/she is better than seventy children who are alive and that child will see Imam-e-Zamana.”
