Back to book

أَبِی ره قَالَ حَدَّثَنِی سَعْدُ بْنُ عَبْدِ اللَّهِ عَنْ أَحْمَدَ بْنِ مُحَمَّدٍ عَنِ الْحَسَنِ بْنِ عَلِیٍّ عَنْ عَبْدِ اللَّهِ بْنِ سِنَانٍ عَنْ مَعْرُوفِ بْنِ خَرَّبُوذَ عَنْ أَبِی جَعْفَرٍ ع قَالَ سَمِعْتُهُ یَقُولُ مَا مِنْ مُؤْمِنٍ یُصَابُ بِمُصِیبَهٍ فِی الدُّنْیَا فَیَسْتَرْجِعُ عِنْدَ مُصِیبَتِهِ حَتَّی تَفْجَأَهُ الْمُصِیبَهُ إِلَّا غَفَرَ اللَّهُ لَهُ مَا مَضَی مِنْ ذُنُوبِهِ إِلَّا الْکَبَائِرَ الَّتِی أَوْجَبَ اللَّهُ عَلَیْهَا النَّارَ قَالَ وَ کُلَّمَا ذَکَرَ مُصِیبَهً فِیمَا یَسْتَقْبِلُ مِنْ عُمُرِهِ فَاسْتَرْجَعَ عِنْدَهَا وَ حَمِدَ اللَّهَ غَفَرَ اللَّهُ لَهُ کُلَّ ذَنْبٍ اکْتَسَبَهُ فِیمَا بَیْنَ الِاسْتِرْجَاعِ الْأَوَّلِ إِلَی الِاسْتِرْجَاعِ الثَّانِی إِلَّا الْکَبَائِرَ مِنَ الذُّنُوبِ.


1. Imam Muhammad Baqir (a.s.) said, “If a believer faces a calamity in this world and utters Laa ilaaha illallaah, Allah will forgive all of his sins except the greater sins for which the punishment of Hell is obligatory. Utter Laa ilaaha illallaah and glorify Allah whenever you are faced with a calamity in future. In this case Allah will forgive all the sins committed between two utterances (of the above phrase) except greater sins.”




وَ مِنْهُ أَیْضاً حَدَّثَنِی مُحَمَّدُ بْنُ الْحَسَنِ قَالَ حَدَّثَنِی مُحَمَّدُ بْنُ الْحَسَنِ الصَّفَّارُ عَنْ أَحْمَدَ بْنِ مُحَمَّدٍ عَنْ عَلِیِّ بْنِ سَیْفٍ عَنْ أَخِیهِ عَنْ أَبِیهِ سَیْفِ بْنِ عَمِیرَهَ عَنْ أَبِی عَبْدِ اللَّهِ ع قَالَ: مَنْ أُلْهِمَ الِاسْتِرْجَاعَ عِنْدَ الْمُصِیبَهِ وَجَبَتْ لَهُ الْجَنَّهُ.


2. And from him too it was narrated to me by Muhammad b. al-Hassan who said it was narrated to me by Muhammad b. al-Hassan al-Saffar from Ahmad b. Muhammad from Ali b. Sayf from his brother from his father Sayf b. ’Umayra from Abi Abdillah (a.s.) who said: “When a person gets the inspiration of uttering Laa ilaaha illallaah at the time of calamity, Paradise becomes obligatory on him.”
