عَنْهُ عَنْ أَحْمَدَ بْنِ مُحَمَّدِ بْنِ عِيسَى عَنْ عَلِيِّ بْنِ الْحَكَمِ عَنْ بَعْضِ أَصْحَابِنَا عَنْ أَبِي عَبْدِ اللَّهِ ( عليه السلام ) قَالَ كَانَ رَجُلٌ يَبِيعُ الزَّيْتَ وَ كَانَ يُحِبُّ رَسُولَ اللَّهِ ( صلى الله عليه وآله ) حُبّاً شَدِيداً كَانَ إِذَا أَرَادَ أَنْ يَذْهَبَ فِي حَاجَتِهِ لَمْ يَمْضِ حَتَّى يَنْظُرَ إِلَى رَسُولِ اللَّهِ ( صلى الله عليه وآله ) وَ قَدْ عُرِفَ ذَلِكَ مِنْهُ فَإِذَا جَاءَ تَطَاوَلَ لَهُ حَتَّى يَنْظُرَ إِلَيْهِ حَتَّى إِذَا كَانَتْ ذَاتُ يَوْمٍ دَخَلَ عَلَيْهِ فَتَطَاوَلَ لَهُ رَسُولُ اللَّهِ ( صلى الله عليه وآله ) حَتَّى نَظَرَ إِلَيْهِ ثُمَّ مَضَى فِي حَاجَتِهِ فَلَمْ يَكُنْ بِأَسْرَعَ مِنْ أَنْ رَجَعَ فَلَمَّا رَآهُ رَسُولُ اللَّهِ ( صلى الله عليه وآله ) قَدْ فَعَلَ ذَلِكَ أَشَارَ إِلَيْهِ بِيَدِهِ اجْلِسْ فَجَلَسَ بَيْنَ يَدَيْهِ فَقَالَ مَا لَكَ فَعَلْتَ الْيَوْمَ شَيْئاً لَمْ تَكُنْ تَفْعَلُهُ قَبْلَ ذَلِكَ فَقَالَ يَا رَسُولَ اللَّهِ وَ الَّذِي بَعَثَكَ بِالْحَقِّ نَبِيّاً لَغَشِيَ قَلْبِي شَيْ‏ءٌ مِنْ ذِكْرِكَ حَتَّى مَا اسْتَطَعْتُ أَنْ أَمْضِيَ فِي حَاجَتِي حَتَّى رَجَعْتُ إِلَيْكَ فَدَعَا لَهُ وَ قَالَ لَهُ خَيْراً ثُمَّ مَكَثَ رَسُولُ اللَّهِ ( صلى الله عليه وآله ) أَيَّاماً لَا يَرَاهُ فَلَمَّا فَقَدَهُ سَأَلَ عَنْهُ فَقِيلَ يَا رَسُولَ اللَّهِ مَا رَأَيْنَاهُ مُنْذُ أَيَّامٍ فَانْتَعَلَ رَسُولُ اللَّهِ ( صلى الله عليه وآله ) وَ انْتَعَلَ مَعَهُ أَصْحَابُهُ وَ انْطَلَقَ حَتَّى أَتَوْا سُوقَ الزَّيْتِ فَإِذَا دُكَّانُ الرَّجُلِ لَيْسَ فِيهِ أَحَدٌ فَسَأَلَ عَنْهُ جِيرَتَهُ فَقَالُوا يَا رَسُولَ اللَّهِ مَاتَ وَ لَقَدْ كَانَ عِنْدَنَا أَمِيناً صَدُوقاً إِلَّا أَنَّهُ قَدْ كَانَ فِيهِ خَصْلَةٌ قَالَ وَ مَا هِيَ قَالُوا كَانَ يَرْهَقُ يَعْنُونَ يَتْبَعُ النِّسَاءَ فَقَالَ رَسُولُ اللَّهِ ( صلى الله عليه وآله ) رَحِمَهُ اللَّهُ وَ اللَّهِ لَقَدْ كَانَ يُحِبُّنِي حُبّاً لَوْ كَانَ نَخَّاساً لَغَفَرَ اللَّهُ لَهُ .


31. From him, from Ahmad Bin Muhammad Bin Isa, from Ali Bin Al-Hakam, from one of our companions who said: Abu Abdullah (a.s.) having said: ‘There was a man who used to sell oil, and he used to love the Messenger (saww) of Allah with intense love. Whenever he intended to go for his business needs, he would never do it unless he looked at the Messenger (saww) of Allah first. He became well known for that for he would stretch himself above others so that he could look at him (saww). It so happened that one day he came over to him (saww) and stretched out to look at the Messenger (saww) of Allah until he saw him (saww), then he went away for his business needs. It was not long before he returned. So when the Messenger (saww) of Allah saw him do that he (saww) gestured by his (saww) (hand) to beckon him to be seated. So he sat down in front of him (saww). He (saww) said: ‘What is the matter that you have done something which you had not done before that?’ He said, ‘O Messenger (saww) of Allah , by the One Who Sent you (saww) with the Truth as a Prophet (saww), my remembrance of you (saww) overwhelmed my heart to the extent that I did not have the ability to go about my business until I returned to you (saww)’. So he (saww) supplicated for him and wished him well. Then the Messenger (saww) of Allah waited a few days but did not see him, so he (saww) asked about him. It was said to him (saww), ‘O Messenger (saww) of Allah , we have not seen him for days’. So the Messenger (saww) of Allah put on his (saww) shoes, and his (saww) companions did the same and walked until he (saww) came to the oil market. At the shop of the man there was no one in it. So he (saww) asked the neighbours about him. They said, ‘O Messenger (saww) of Allah , he died, and he used to be a trustworthy one among us and truthful, but he had one (peculiar) habit’. He (saww) said: ‘And what was that?’ They said, ‘He used to exhaust himself following the women’. So the Messenger (saww) of Allah said: ‘May Allah have Mercy upon him. By Allah , he used to love me (saww) with (intense) love. Even if he had been a slave trader, Allah would Forgive him’.
