Back to book

1ـ عِدَّةٌ مِنْ أَصْحَابِنَا عَنْ أَحْمَدَ بْنِ أَبِي عَبْدِ الله عَنْ زَكَرِيَّا الْمُؤْمِنِ عَنْ دَاوُدَ بْنِ فَرْقَدٍ أَوْ قُتَيْبَةَ الأَعْشَى عَنْ أَبِي عَبْدِ الله (عَلَيْهِ السَّلاَم) قَالَ قَالَ أَصْحَابُ رَسُولِ الله (صلَّى اللهُ عَلَيْهِ وَآلِه) يَا رَسُولَ الله فِدَاكَ آبَاؤُنَا وَأُمَّهَاتُنَا إِنَّ أَصْحَابَ الْمَعْرُوفِ فِي الدُّنْيَا عُرِفُوا بِمَعْرُوفِهِمْ فَبِمَ يُعْرَفُونَ فِي الآخِرَةِ فَقَالَ إِنَّ الله تَبَارَكَ وَتَعَالَى إِذَا أَدْخَلَ أَهْلَ الْجَنَّةِ الْجَنَّةَ أَمَرَ رِيحاً عَبِقَةً طَيِّبَةً فَلَزِقَتْ بِأَهْلِ الْمَعْرُوفِ فَلا يَمُرُّ أَحَدٌ مِنْهُمْ بِمَلإٍ مِنْ أَهْلِ الْجَنَّةِ إِلاَّ وَجَدُوا رِيحَهُ فَقَالُوا هَذَا مِنْ أَهْلِ الْمَعْرُوفِ.


1. A number of our people have narrated from Ahmad ibn abu ‘Abd Allah from Zakariya al-Mu’min from Dawud ibn Farqad or Qutaybah al-A‘sha’ who has said the following: “Abu ‘Abd Allah, ‘Alayhi al-Salam, has narrated this Hadith. ‘Once, companions of the Messenger of Allah, O Allah, grant compensation to Muhammad and his family worthy of their services to Your cause, asked a question. “O Messenger of Allah, we pray to Allah to keep our souls and the souls of ancestors in service for your cause; if people who provide Benevolent Assistance are recognized because of such acts, by what means will they be recognized on the Day of Judgment?” He (the Messenger of Allah) replied, “When Allah, the most Blessed, the most High, will admit providers of Benevolent Assistance in Paradise, He will command a wind that carries a certain fragrance to accompany them. Whenever one of them passes by the people in Paradise, they notice the fragrance and say, ‘This is one of the providers of benevolent assistance.”””

2. Muhammad ibn Yahya has narrated from Ahmad ibn Muhammad ibn ‘Isa from abu ‘Abd Allah al-Barqiy from certain individuals of our people in a marfu‘ manner who has said the following: “Abu ‘Abd Allah, ‘Alayhi al-Salam, has said that providers of Benevolent Assistance will be as such on the Day of Judgment also. They will receive the news, ‘Your sins are all forgiven. You may give away your good deeds as gifts to whomever you like.”’

No one can enter through this gate except providers of Benevolent Assistance. Providers of Benevolent Assistance will also be as such on the Day of Judgment.”
