115. Punishment of cursing a person who does not deserve it

Back to book

أَبِی ره قَالَ حَدَّثَنِی سَعْدُ بْنُ عَبْدِ اللَّهِ عَنْ أَحْمَدَ بْنِ مُحَمَّدٍ عَنِ الْوَشَّاءِ عَنْ عَلِیِّ بْنِ أَبِی حَمْزَهَ قَالَ سَمِعْتُ أَبَا عَبْدِ اللَّهِ ع یَقُولُ إِنَّ اللَّعْنَهَ إِذَا خَرَجَتْ مِنْ فَمِ صَاحِبِهَا تَرَدَّدَتْ فَإِنْ وَجَدَتْ مَسَاغاً وَ إِلَّا رَجَعَتْ عَلَی صَاحِبِهَا.


1. It is narrated that Imam Ja’far Sadiq (a.s.) said, “Whenever a person curses, this curse travels till it gets a person who is worthy of it. If it does not get such a person, it returns to its source.”
