Back to book

ابْنُ مَحْبُوبٍ عَنْ حَنَانٍ وَ عَلِيِّ بْنِ رِئَابٍ عَنْ زُرَارَةَ قَالَ قُلْتُ لَهُ قَوْلُهُ عَزَّ وَ جَلَّ لَأَقْعُدَنَّ لَهُمْ صِراطَكَ الْمُسْتَقِيمَ ثُمَّ لَآتِيَنَّهُمْ مِنْ بَيْنِ أَيْدِيهِمْ وَ مِنْ خَلْفِهِمْ وَ عَنْ أَيْمانِهِمْ وَ عَنْ شَمائِلِهِمْ وَ لا تَجِدُ أَكْثَرَهُمْ شاكِرِينَ قَالَ فَقَالَ أَبُو جَعْفَرٍ (عليه السلام) يَا زُرَارَةُ إِنَّهُ إِنَّمَا صَمَدَ لَكَ وَ لِأَصْحَابِكَ فَأَمَّا الْآخَرُونَ فَقَدْ فَرَغَ مِنْهُمْ.


118. Ibn Mahboub, from Hanaan and Ali Bin Ra’ib, from Zurara who said: I said to him (a.s.), ‘The Statement of the Mighty and Majestic: “[7:16] I will certainly lie in wait for them in Thy straight path [7:17] Then I will certainly come to them from before them and from behind them, and from their right-hand side and from their left-hand side; and Thou shalt not find most of them thankful”, so Abu Ja’far (a.s.) said: ‘O Zurara! But rather, he (Satan (la)) is lying in wait for you and for your companions. So as for the other ones, he has finished from them’.
