Back to book

حَدَّثَنِی مُحَمَّدُ بْنُ عَلِیٍّ مَاجِیلَوَیْهِ عَنْ عَمِّهِ عَنْ مُحَمَّدِ بْنِ عَلِیٍّ الْقُرَشِیِّ عَنِ ابْنِ فَضَّالٍ عَنِ الْمِیثَمِیِّ عَنْ أَبِی بَصِیرٍ قَالَ: دَخَلْتُ عَلَی أُمِّ حَمِیدَهَ أُعَزِّیهَا بِأَبِی عَبْدِ اللَّهِ ع فَبَکَتْ وَ بَکَیْتُ لِبُکَائِهَا ثُمَّ قَالَتْ یَا أَبَا مُحَمَّدٍ لَوْ رَأَیْتَ أَبَا عَبْدِ اللَّهِ عِنْدَ الْمَوْتِ لَرَأَیْتَ عَجَباً فَتَحَ عَیْنَهُ ثُمَّ قَالَ اجْمَعُوا لِی کُلَّ مَنْ بَیْنِی وَ بَیْنَهُ قَرَابَهٌ قَالَتْ فَلَمْ نَتْرُکْ أَحَداً إِلَّا جَمَعْنَاهُ قَالَ فَنَظَرَ إِلَیْهِمْ ثُمَّ قَالَ إِنَّ شَفَاعَتَنَا لَا تَنَالُ مُسْتَخِفّاً بِالصَّلَاهِ.


1. Abu Baseer said that he presented his condolences of Imam Ja’far Sadiq (a.s.) to Umme Hameeda. She started weeping and he too did. Then she said, “Were you with the Imam at the time of his death, you would have heard a strange thing indeed. During his last moments, Imam (a.s.) opened his eyes and said: Call my near relatives. When they were summoned, Imam (a.s.) said: “One who considers Salaat unimportant will not receive our intercession.”
