عَلِيُّ بْنُ إِبْرَاهِيمَ عَنْ أَبِيهِ وَ عَلِيُّ بْنُ مُحَمَّدٍ جَمِيعاً عَنِ الْقَاسِمِ بْنِ مُحَمَّدٍ عَنْ سُلَيْمَانَ بْنِ دَاوُدَ الْمِنْقَرِيِّ عَنْ حَفْصِ بْنِ غِيَاثٍ قَالَ قَالَ أَبُو عَبْدِ اللَّهِ (عليه السلام) إِذَا أَرَادَ أَحَدُكُمْ أَنْ لَا يَسْأَلَ رَبَّهُ شَيْئاً إِلَّا أَعْطَاهُ فَلْيَيْأَسْ مِنَ النَّاسِ كُلِّهِمْ وَ لَا يَكُونُ لَهُ رَجَاءٌ إِلَّا مِنْ عِنْدِ اللَّهِ عَزَّ ذِكْرُهُ فَإِذَا عَلِمَ اللَّهُ عَزَّ وَ جَلَّ ذَلِكَ مِنْ قَلْبِهِ لَمْ يَسْأَلْهُ شَيْئاً إِلَّا أَعْطَاهُ فَحَاسِبُوا أَنْفُسَكُمْ قَبْلَ أَنْ تُحَاسَبُوا عَلَيْهَا فَإِنَّ لِلْقِيَامَةِ خَمْسِينَ مَوْقِفاً كُلُّ مَوْقِفٍ مِقْدَارُهُ أَلْفُ سَنَةٍ ثُمَّ تَلَا فِي يَوْمٍ كانَ مِقْدارُهُ أَلْفَ سَنَةٍ مِمَّا تَعُدُّونَ.

Then he (a.s.) recited: “[32:5] in a day the measure of which is a thousand years of what you count”.
