أَبِي رَحِمَهُ اَللَّهُ قَالَ حَدَّثَنَا سَعْدُ بْنُ عَبْدِ اَللَّهِ قَالَ حَدَّثَنَا أَحْمَدُ بْنُ اَلْحَسَنِ بْنِ عَلِيِّ بْنِ فَضَّالٍ عَنْ عَمَّارِ بْنِ مُوسَى عَنْ أَبِي عَبْدِ اَللَّهِ ع أَنَّهُ سُئِلَ عَنْ أَهْلِ اَلسَّمَاءِ هَلْ يَرَوْنَ أَهْلَ اَلْأَرْضِ قَالَ ع لاَ يَرَوْنَ إِلاَّ اَلْمُؤْمِنِينَ لِأَنَّ اَلْمُؤْمِنَ مِنْ نُورٍ كَنُورِ اَلْكَوَاكِبِ قِيلَ فَهُمْ يَرَوْنَ أَهْلَ اَلْأَرْضِ قَالَ ع لاَ يَرَوْنَ نُورَهُ حَيْثُ مَا تَوَجَّهَ ثُمَّ قَالَ ع لِكُلِّ مُؤْمِنٍ خَمْسُ سَاعَاتٍ يَوْمَ اَلْقِيَامَةِ يَشْفَعُ فِيهَا .

My father, Allah may have mercy upon him, narrated to us from Sa’d bin Abdullah from Ahmed bin al-Hasan bin Ali bin Faddhal from … Ammar bin Musa that Abu Abdullah (a) was asked whether the inhabitants of the heavens can see the inhabitants of the earth. He (a) answered: The inhabitants of the heavens can see only the believers, because they give light like the light of the stars. Some asked: Can they see the people on this earth markedly? He (a) answered: No, they cannot. They can only see their lights wherever they go. He (a) then added: On the Day of Resurrection, every believer will be given five hours during which he will be granted the right of intercession.
