Maʿānī al-ʾAkhbār > The meaning of the severe tribulation
Hadith #1

حدثنا أبي - رضي الله عنه - قال حدثنا سعد بن عبد الله قال: حدثنا إبراهيم بن هاشم، عن الحسين بن يزيد النوفلي، عن إسماعيل بن أبي زياد السكوني، عن جعفر بن محمد عن أبيه، عن آبائه عليهم السلام قال: قال رسول الله صلى الله عليه وآله: جهد البلاء أن يقدم الرجل فيضرب عنقه صبرا والأسير ما دام في وثاق العدو، والرجل يجد على بطن امرأته رجلا.

1. We were told by my father, may Allah be pleased with him, that he said: We were told by Sa’d bin Abdullah, that he said: We were told by Ibrahim bin Hashim, from Hussain bin Yazid al-Nawfali, from Isma’eel bin Abi Ziyad al-Sukuni, from Ja’far bin Muhammed, from his father, from his fathers, peace be upon them, that he said: The Messenger of Allah, Allah’s blessings be upon him and his Family, said: The severe tribulation is that a man is drawn forward and his neck is struck patiently, a captive as long as he is in the ropes of the enemy, and for a man to find a man upon the belly of his woman.
