Back to book

مُحَمَّدُ بْنُ يَحْيَى عَنْ أَحْمَدَ بْنِ مُحَمَّدٍ عَنِ ابْنِ مَحْبُوبٍ عَنْ عَبْدِ اللَّهِ بْنِ سِنَانٍ قَالَ سَمِعْتُ أَبَا عَبْدِ اللَّهِ ( عليه السلام ) يَقُولُ إِنَّ الرَّجُلَ يَشْرَبُ الشَّرْبَةَ مِنَ الْمَاءِ فَيُدْخِلُهُ اللَّهُ عَزَّ وَ جَلَّ بِهَا الْجَنَّةَ قُلْتُ وَ كَيْفَ ذَاكَ يَا ابْنَ رَسُولِ اللَّهِ قَالَ إِنَّ الرَّجُلَ يَشْرَبُ الْمَاءَ فَيَقْطَعُهُ ثُمَّ يُنَحِّي الْإِنَاءَ وَ هُوَ يَشْتَهِيهِ فَيَحْمَدُ اللَّهَ عَزَّ وَ جَلَّ ثُمَّ يَعُودُ فِيهِ وَ يَشْرَبُ ثُمَّ يُنَحِّيهِ وَ هُوَ يَشْتَهِيهِ فَيَحْمَدُ اللَّهَ عَزَّ وَ جَلَّ ثُمَّ يَعُودُ فَيَشْرَبُ فَيُوجِبُ اللَّهُ عَزَّ وَ جَلَّ لَهُ بِذَلِكَ الْجَنَّةَ .


1. Muhammad ibn Yahya has narrated from Ahmad ibn Muhammad from ibn Mahbub from ‘Abd Allah ibn Sinan who has said the following: “I once heard abu ‘Abd Allah, ‘Alayhi al-Salam, saying, ‘A man only drinks water but Allah, most Majestic, most Glorious, for that reason admits him in paradise.’ I then asked, ‘How can that happen, O child of the Messenger of Allah?’ He (the Imam) said, ‘The man drinks water, stops drinking, moves the bowl away when he still has the desire for water, and he praises Allah, most Majestic, most Glorious. He then drinks again, then moves the bowl of water away when he still has the desire for water, then praises Allah, most Majestic, most Glorious, then drinks more water and, thus, Allah, most Majestic, most Glorious, makes paradise necessary for him.’”

عِدَّةٌ مِنْ أَصْحَابِنَا عَنْ أَحْمَدَ بْنِ أَبِي عَبْدِ اللَّهِ عَنْ يَعْقُوبَ بْنِ يَزِيدَ عَنِ ابْنِ عَمٍّ لِعُمَرَ بْنِ يَزِيدَ عَنْ بِنْتِ عُمَرَ بْنِ يَزِيدَ عَنْ أَبِيهَا عَنْ أَبِي عَبْدِ اللَّهِ ( عليه السلام ) قَالَ إِذَا شَرِبَ أَحَدُكُمُ الْمَاءَ فَقَالَ بِسْمِ اللَّهِ ثُمَّ شَرِبَ ثُمَّ قَطَعَهُ فَقَالَ الْحَمْدُ لِلَّهِ ثُمَّ شَرِبَ فَقَالَ بِسْمِ اللَّهِ ثُمَّ قَطَعَهُ فَقَالَ الْحَمْدُ لِلَّهِ ثُمَّ شَرِبَ فَقَالَ بِسْمِ اللَّهِ ثُمَّ قَطَعَهُ فَقَالَ الْحَمْدُ لِلَّهِ سَبَّحَ ذَلِكَ الْمَاءُ لَهُ مَا دَامَ فِي بَطْنِهِ إِلَى أَنْ يَخْرُجَ .

عَلِيُّ بْنُ مُحَمَّدٍ رَفَعَهُ قَالَ قَالَ أَبُو عَبْدِ اللَّهِ ( عليه السلام ) إِذَا أَرَدْتَ أَنْ تَشْرَبَ الْمَاءَ بِاللَّيْلِ فَحَرِّكِ الْمَاءَ وَ قُلْ يَا مَاءُ مَاءُ زَمْزَمَ وَ مَاءُ فُرَاتٍ يُقْرِءَانِكَ السَّلَامَ .
