Back to book

حَدَّثَنِی حَمْزَهُ بْنُ مُحَمَّدٍ الْعَلَوِیُّ عَنْ عَلِیِّ بْنِ إِبْرَاهِیمَ عَنْ أَبِیهِ عَنْ عَبْدِ اللَّهِ بْنِ الْمُغِیرَهِ السَّکُونِیِّ عَنْ جَعْفَرِ بْنِ مُحَمَّدٍ الصَّادِقِ عَنْ آبَائِهِ ع قَالَ قَالَ رَسُولُ اللَّهِ ص التَّعْزِیَهُ تُورِثُ الْجَنَّهَ.


1. Imam Ja’far Sadiq (a.s.) narrates from his ancestors that the Holy Prophet (s.a.w.s.) said, “Saying words of condolence is a way to enter Paradise.”




وَ عَنْهُ ص قَالَ: مَنْ عَزَّی حَزِیناً کُسِیَ فِی الْمَوْقِفِ حُلَّهً یُجْبَرُ بِهَا.


2. The Holy Prophet (s.a.w.s.) said, “One who says words of condolence to a sad person, will be awarded a fine dress to be worn on the Day of Judgment.”




حَدَّثَنِی مُحَمَّدُ بْنُ الْحَسَنِ قَالَ حَدَّثَنِی مُحَمَّدُ بْنُ الْحَسَنِ الصَّفَّارُ عَنْ أَحْمَدَ بْنِ مُحَمَّدِ بْنِ عِیسَی عَنْ عَلِیِّ بْنِ الْحَکَمِ عَنْ رِفَاعَهَ بْنِ مُوسَی النَّخَّاسِ عَنْ أَبِی عَبْدِ اللَّهِ ع أَنَّهُ عَزَّی رَجُلًا بِابْنٍ لَهُ فَقَالَ لَهُ اللَّهُ خَیْرٌ لِابْنِکَ مِنْکَ وَ ثَوَابُ اللَّهِ خَیْرٌ لَکَ مِنْهُ فَلَمَّا بَلَغَهُ جَزَعُهُ عَلَیْهِ عَادَ إِلَیْهِ فَقَالَ لَهُ قَدْ مَاتَ رَسُولُ اللَّهِ ص فَمَا لَکَ بِهِ أُسْوَهٌ فَقَالَ لَهُ إِنَّهُ کَانَ مُرَاهِقاً قَالَ إِنَّ أَمَامَهُ ثَلَاثَ خِصَالٍ شَهَادَهَ أَنْ لَا إِلَهَ إِلَّا اللَّهُ وَ رَحْمَهَ اللَّهِ وَ شَفَاعَهَ رَسُولِ اللَّهِ ص فَلَنْ یَفُوتَهُ وَاحِدَهٌ مِنْهُنَّ إِنْ شَاءَ اللَّهُ.


3. Imam Ja’far Sadiq (a.s.) condoled a person for the death of his son and said, “The Holy Prophet has passed away from this world. Why don’t you see the good qualities of this great personality?” He replied, “My son was a sinner.” Imam (a.s.) said, “He has three things in front of him. God willing, he won’t waste any of them. Firstly, the testimony that there is no god except Allah, mercy of God and intercession of the Holy Prophet (s.a.w.s.).”




حَدَّثَنِی مُحَمَّدُ بْنُ مُوسَی بْنِ الْمُتَوَکِّلِ قَالَ حَدَّثَنِی سَعْدُ بْنُ عَبْدِ اللَّهِ عَنْ أَحْمَدَ بْنِ أَبِی عَبْدِ اللَّهِ الْبَرْقِیِّ عَنْ أَبِیهِ عَنْ وَهْبِ بْنِ وَهْبٍ عَنْ جَعْفَرِ بْنِ مُحَمَّدٍ الصَّادِقِ عَنْ أَبِیهِ عَنْ آبَائِهِ ع عَنْ رَسُولِ اللَّهِ ص قَالَ: مَنْ عَزَّی مُصَاباً کَانَ لَهُ مِثْلُ أَجْرِهِ مِنْ غَیْرِ أَنْ یَنْقُصَ مِنْ أَجْرِ الْمُصَابِ شَیْ ءٌ.


4. It was narrated to me by Muhammad b. Musa b. al-Mutawakil who said it was narrated to me by Sa’d b. Abdillah from Ahmad b. Abi Abdillah al-Barqi from his father from Wahab b. Wahab from Ja’far b. Muhammad al-Sadiq from his father from his forefathers (a.s.) from The Messenger of Allah (s.a.w.s.) who said: “One who condoles a person afflicted by calamity, will get reward equal to the latter while the reward of the latter won’t be reduced.”
