Hadith #1

حدثني أحمد بن محمد بن يحيى العطار- رضي الله عنه - قال: حدثنا سعد بن عبد الله، عن أحمد بن محمد بن عيسى، عن أبيه، عن محمد بن أبي عمير، عن علي بن أبي حمزة، عن أبي بصير، عن الصادق جعفر بن محمد، عن آبائه، عن علي عليهم السلام قال: قال رسول الله صلى الله عليه وآله: إن في الجنة غرفا يرى ظاهرها من باطنها وباطنها من ظاهرها يسكنها من أمتي من أطاب الكلام، وأطعم الطعام، وأفشى السلام، وأدام الصيام، وصلى بالليل والناس نيام، فقال علي عليه السلام: يا رسول الله ومن يطيق هذا من أمتك؟ فقال عليه السلام: يا علي أو ما تدري ما إطابة الكلام؟ من قال إذا أصبح وأمسى: " سبحان الله والحمد لله ولا إله إلا الله والله أكبر) - عشر مرات -، وإطعام الطعام نفقه الرجل على عياله، وأما إدامة الصيام فهو أن يصوم الرجل شهر رمضان وثلاثة أيام في كل شهر يكتب له صوم الدهر، وأما الصلاة بالليل والناس نيام فمن صلى المغرب وصلاة العشاء الآخرة وصلاة الغداة في المسجد في جماعة فكأنما أحيا الليل كله، وإفشاء السلام أن لا يبخل بالسلام على أحد من المسلمين.

1. I was told by Ahmad bin Muhammed bin Yahya al-‘Attar, may Allah be pleased with him, that he said: We were told by Sa’d bin Abdullah, from Ahmad bin Muhammed bin Isa, from his father, from Muhammed bin Abi ‘Umayr, from Ali bin Abi Hamza, from Abu Baseer, from al-Sadiq, Ja’far bin Muhammed, from his fathers, from Ali, peace be upon him, that he said: The Messenger of Allah, Allah’s blessings be upon him and his Family, said: Indeed, in Paradise there are rooms from whom their outside is visible from the inside, their inside from their outside. They are inhabited by those from my nation who beautify speech, feed with food, spread peace, continuously fasted and prayed at night while people were asleep. Then Ali, peace be upon him, said: O Messenger of Allah, and who can handle this from your nation? He, peace be upon him, then said: O Ali, do you not know what beautifying speech is? (It is) The one who says, when he wakes up at the morning and is to sleep at night: «Glory be to Allah, and praise be to Allah, and there is no god but Allah, and Allah is the Greater» ten times. Feeding with food is a man’s expenditure towards his family. As for continuously fasting, it is that a man fasts the month of Ramadhan and three days of every month, by which the fasting of a lifetime is written for him (in rewards). As for praying at night while people are asleep, it is that the one who prays (the prayer of) the sundown, the prayer of the last evening and the prayer of the early morning in a mosque in congregation, and it will be as if he has revived all the night (in prayer). The spreading of peace is that one is not stingy with sending peace upon anyone of the Muslims.
