Maʿānī al-ʾAkhbār > The meaning of what was narrated with regards to that the one who would love to meet Allah, Exalted is He, then Allah, Exallted is He, will love to meet him, and that the one who would hate to meet Allah, Allah will hate to meet him
Hadith #1

حدثنا محمد بن الحسن بن أحمد بن الوليد - رضي الله عنه - قال: حدثنا محمد بن الحسن الصفار، عن العباس بن معروف، عن علي بن مهزيار، عن القاسم بن محمد، عن عبد الصمد بن بشير، عن بعض أصحابه، عن أبي عبد الله عليه السلام قال: قلت له: أصلحك الله من أحب لقاء الله أحب الله لقاءه ومن أبغض لقاء الله أبغض الله لقاءه؟ قال: نعم. فقلت: فوالله إنا لنكره الموت. فقال: ليس ذلك حيث تذهب، إنما ذلك عند المعاينة إذا رأى ما يحب فليس شئ أحب إليه من أن يتقدم والله يحب لقاءه وهو يحب لقاء الله حينئذ، وإذا رأى ما يكره فليس شئ أبغض إليه من لقاء الله والله عز وجل يبغض لقاءه.

1. We were told by Muhammed bin Hasan bin Ahmad bin Waleed, may Allah be pleased with him, that he said: We were told by Muhammed bin Hasan al-Saffar, from Abbas bin Ma’ruf, from Ali bin Mahziyar, from Qasem bin Muhammed, from Abdul-Samad bin Basheer, from some of our companions, from Abu Abdillah, peace be upon him, that he said: I said to him: May Allah rectify you, is it that the one who would love to meet Allah, Allah will love to meet him, and that the one who would hate to meet Allah, Allah will hate to meet him? He said: Yes. Then I said: For by Allah, we surely hate death. Then he said: That is not what you think. That is only with regards to the contradiction of when one evaluates what one loves and there would be nothing more beloved to him to be prioritized. Allah would then love to meet him, and he would love to meet Allah. Also, (it applies to) when one evaluates what one dislikes, and there would be nothing more hated to him than to meet Allah. Allah, Exalted and Glorious is He, would then hate to meet him.



Hadith #2

وبهذا الاسناد، عن علي بن مهزيار، عن فضالة بن أيوب، عن معاوية بن وهب، عن يحيى بن سابور، قال: سمعت أبا عبد الله عليه السلام في الميت تدمع عند الموت. فقال: ذاك عند معاينة رسول الله صلى الله عليه وآله فيرى ما يسره [وما يحبه]. قال: ثم قال: أما ترى الرجل يرى ما يسره وما يحب فتدمع عينه ويضحك؟

2. With this chain of narrators, from Ali bin Mahziyar, from Fadala bin Ayub, from Mu’awiya bin Wahab, from Yahya bin Sabour, that he said: I heard Abu Abdillah, peace be upon him, speaking with regards to the dead person when his eye sheds a tear at (the moment of) death. He said: That is when he is to be observed by the Messenger of Allah, Allah’s blessings be upon him and his Family, during which he will see that which makes him rejoice and which he loves. He said: Then he said: Do you not see a man, he sees what rejoices him and what he loves, during which his eye will shed a tear and he will smile?
