Back to book

حَدَّثَنِی مُحَمَّدُ بْنُ الْحَسَنِ بْنِ مُوسَی بْنِ الْمُتَوَکِّلِ قَالَ حَدَّثَنِی عَبْدُ اللَّهِ بْنُ جَعْفَرٍ الْحِمْیَرِیُّ عَنْ مُحَمَّدِ بْنِ الْحُسَیْنِ عَنِ الْحَسَنِ بْنِ مَحْبُوبٍ عَنْ أَبِی الْوَرْدِ عَنْ أَبِی جَعْفَرٍ ع قَالَ: مَنِ اغْتِیبَ عِنْدَهُ أَخُوهُ الْمُؤْمِنُ فَنَصَرَهُ وَ أَعَانَهُ نَصَرَهُ اللَّهُ وَ أَعَانَهُ فِی الدُّنْیَا وَ الْآخِرَهِ وَ مَنِ اغْتِیبَ عِنْدَهُ أَخُوهُ الْمُؤْمِنُ فَلَمْ یَنْصُرْهُ وَ لَمْ یُعِنْهُ وَ لَمْ یَدْفَعْ عَنْهُ وَ هُوَ یَقْدِرُ عَلَی نُصْرَتِهِ وَ عَوْنِهِ إِلَّا حَقَّرَهُ اللَّهُ فِی الدُّنْیَا وَ الْآخِرَهِ.


1. Imam Muhammad Baqir (a.s.) said, “If a brother in faith of a person is being backbited and the person helps his brother the Almighty Allah will help him in the world and hereafter. If a brother in faith of a person is being backbited and the person does not help his brother the Almighty Allah will disgrace him in his world and the hereafter.”
