Hadith #1

وبهذا الاسناد، عن أبي جعفر عليه السلام قال: إنّ الله عزّ وجلّ يعطي الدنيا من يحبّ ويبغض، ولا يعطي الآخرة إلاّ من أحبّ، وإنّ المؤمن ليسأل ربّه موضع سوط من الدنيا فلا يعطيه، ويسأله الآخرة فيعطيه ما شاء، ويعطي الكافر من الدنيا قبل أن يسأله ما شاء، ويسأله موضع سوط في الآخرة فلا يعطيه إيّاه.

(The same previous series of relaters)… that Abu Ja’far (a) said: Allah, Powerful and Majestic is He, gives (the pleasures of) this world to anyone, whether He likes or dislikes, while He gives the world to come only to those whom He likes. It happens that Allah does not answer the believer who asks for a location that is as small as a place of a lash, and gives the world to the disbeliever before he asks for anything. But, if that disbeliever asks Allah for a location that is as small as a place of a lash in the world to come, Allah will not answer him.
