Back to book

1 - محمد بن يحيى، عن أحمد بن محمد بن عيسى، عن علي بن الحكم، عن صفوان بن مهران، عن أبي عبد الله (عليه السلام) قال: قال رسول الله (صلى الله عليه وآله): تزوجوا وزوجوا ألا فمن حظ امرء مسلم إنفاق قيمة أيمة (2) وما من شئ أحب إلى الله عز وجل من بيت يعمر في الاسلام بالنكاح وما من شئ أبغض إلى الله عز وجل من بيت يخرب في الاسلام بالفرقة - يعني الطلاق - ثم قال أبو عبد الله (عليه السلام): إن الله عز وجل إنما وكد في الطلاق وكرر فيه القول من بغضه الفرقة.


1. Muhammad ibn Yahya has narrated from Ahmad ibn Muhammad ibn ‘Isa from Ali ibn al-Hakam from Safwan ibn Mehran 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, ‘It is of the share of good fortune of a Muslim that female members of his family find marriage early on and there is nothing more beloved to Allah, most Majestic, most Glorious, than a home that is established in Islam with marriage and there is nothing more hated to Allah, most Majestic, most Glorious, than a home that is destroyed in Islam because of division, - divorce.’ Abu ‘Abd Allah, ‘Alayhi al-Salam, then said, ‘Allah, most Majestic, most Glorious, has stressed on His hating divorce in repeated ways because of His extreme dislike of division.’”
