Hadith #1

حدثنا محمد بن علي ماجيلويه - رضي الله عنه - عن عمه محمد بن أبي القاسم، عن أحمد ابن أبي عبد الله البرقي، عن أبيه، عن محمد بن أبي عمير، قال: حدثني بعض أصحابنا، عن أبي عبد الله عليه السلام أنه قال: الناس اثنان: واحد أراح، وآخر استراح. فأما الذي استراح فالمؤمن إذا مات استراح من الدنيا وبلائها، وأما الذي أراح فالكافر إذا مات أراح الشجر والدواب وكثيرا من الناس.

1. We were told by Muhammed bin Ali Majilawayh, may Allah be pleased with him, from his paternal uncle, Muhammed bin Abi’l-Qasim, from Ahmad ibn Abi Abdillah al-Barqi, from his father, from Muhammed bin Abi Umayr, that he said: I was told by some of our companions, from Abu Abdillah, peace be upon him, that he said: People are (of) two (kinds): one who relieves, and another who rests. As for the one who rests, it is the believer; when he dies, he rests from this world and its tribulation. As for he who relieves, it is the disbeliever; when he dies, he relieves the trees, riding animals and many of the people.
