Maʿānī al-ʾAkhbār > The meaning of the womb becoming heavy
Hadith #1

حدثنا محمد بن الحسن بن أحمد بن الوليد - رضي الله عنه - قال:: حدثنا محمد بن الحسن الصفار، عن محمد بن الحسين بن أبي الخطاب، عن ابن أسباط، عن علي بن أبي حمزة، عن أبي بصير، عن أبي عبد الله عليه السلام قال: قال رسول الله صلى الله عليه وآله: صلة الرحم تزيد في العمر، وصدقة السر تطفئ غضب الرب، وإن قطيعة الرحم واليمين الكاذبة لتذران الديار بلاقع من أهلها وتثقلان الرحم. وإن تثقل الرحم انقطاع النسل.

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 Muhammed bin Hussain bin Abi’l-Khattab, from Ibn Asbat, from Ali bin Abi Hamza, from Abu Baseer, from Abu Abdillah, peace be upon him, that he said: The Messenger of Allah, Allah’s blessings be upon him and his Family, said: Seeking connection to one’s kinship increases age and (giving) charity in secret extinguishes the anger of the Lord, whereas disconnecting from one’s kinship and false rightly-handed promise pulverize homes into unproductive earth with its people, and they cause heaviness to the womb. Indeed, the heaviness of the womb is (a cause to) discontinuation of progeny.
