123. Punishment of asking for a thing which is not needed

Back to book

أَبِی ره قَالَ حَدَّثَنِی سَعْدُ بْنُ عَبْدِ اللَّهِ عَنْ أَحْمَدَ بْنِ مُحَمَّدِ بْنِ خَالِدٍ عَنْ یَعْقُوبَ بْنِ یَزِیدَ عَنِ ابْنِ سِنَانٍ عَنْ ملک [مَالِکِ] بْنِ حصن [حُصَیْنٍ] السَّکُونِیِّ قَالَ قَالَ رَسُولُ اللَّهِ ص مَا مِنْ عَبْدٍ یَسْأَلُ مِنْ غَیْرِ حَاجَهٍ فَیَمُوتُ حَتَّی یُحْوِجَهُ اللَّهُ إِلَیْهَا وَ یُثَبِّتَ لَهُ بِهَا النَّارَ.


1. Imam Ja’far Sadiq (a.s.) said, “One who asks for a thing which he does not need, will not die till he is deprived of it and Allah will throw him in Hell because of this deed.”
