1- عِدَّةٌ مِنْ أَصْحَابِنَا عَنْ سَهْلِ بْنِ زِيَادٍ وَأَحْمَدَ بْنِ مُحَمَّدٍ عَنِ ابْنِ مَحْبُوبٍ عَنْ عَلِيِّ بْنِ رِئَابٍ عَنْ عَبْدِ الأعْلَى بْنِ أَعْيَنَ مَوْلَى آلِ سَامٍ عَنْ أَبِي عَبْدِ اللهِ (عَلَيْهِ السَّلام) قَالَ قَالَ رَسُولُ اللهِ (صَلَّى اللهُ عَلَيْهِ وَآلِه) تَزَوَّجُوا الأبْكَارَ فَإِنَّهُنَّ أَطْيَبُ شَيْ‏ءٍ أَفْوَاهاً وَفِي حَدِيثٍ آخَرَ وَأَنْشَفُهُ أَرْحَاماً وَأَدَرُّ شَيْ‏ءٍ أَخْلافاً وَأَفْتَحُ شَيْ‏ءٍ أَرْحَاماً أَمَا عَلِمْتُمْ أَنِّي أُبَاهِي بِكُمُ الأمَمَ يَوْمَ الْقِيَامَةِ حَتَّى بِالسِّقْطِ يَظَلُّ مُحْبَنْطِئاً عَلَى بَابِ الْجَنَّةِ فَيَقُولُ اللهُ عَزَّ وَجَلَّ ادْخُلِ الْجَنَّةَ فَيَقُولُ لا أَدْخُلُ حَتَّى يَدْخُلَ أَبَوَايَ قَبْلِي فَيَقُولُ اللهُ تَبَارَكَ وَتَعَالَى لِمَلَكٍ مِنَ الْمَلائِكَةِ ائْتِنِي بِأَبَوَيْهِ فَيَأْمُرُ بِهِمَا إِلَى الْجَنَّةِ فَيَقُولُ هَذَا بِفَضْلِ رَحْمَتِي لَكَ.


1. A number of our people have narrated from Sahl ibn Ziyad and Ahmad ibn Muhammad from ibn Mahbub from ibn Ri’ab from ‘Abd al-‘ Ala’ ibn ‘ A‘yan Mawla’ Ale Sam who has said the following: “Abu ‘Abd Allah, ‘Alayhi al-Salam, has said that the Messenger of Allah, O Allah, grant compensation to Muhammad and his family worthy of their services to Your cause, has said, ‘Marry virgins; they are of the finest mouth.’ In another Hadith it is said that, their uterus most dry, their posterior most round, and their womb most open. Have you taken notice that I will express pride among the nations on the Day of Judgment even because of a miscarried child who, filled with anger, stands at the door of paradise? Allah, most Majestic, most Glorious, then says, ‘Enter paradise.’ The child says, ‘No, I will not enter until my parents enter before I enter.’ Allah, most Blessed, most High, says to an angel of the angels, ‘Bring to Me his parents.’ He then commands to admit them in paradise, and then He says, ‘This is because of My mercy upon you.’”
