عَلِيٌّ عَنْ أَبِيهِ عَنِ ابْنِ أَبِي عُمَيْرٍ عَنْ مُحَمَّدِ بْنِ أَبِي حَمْزَةَ وَ غَيْرِ وَاحِدٍ عَنْ أَبِي عَبْدِ اللَّهِ (عليه السلام) قَالَ قَالَ رَسُولُ اللَّهِ (صلى الله عليه وآله) إِنَّ لَكُمْ فِي حَيَاتِي خَيْراً وَ فِي مَمَاتِي خَيْراً قَالَ فَقِيلَ يَا رَسُولَ اللَّهِ أَمَّا حَيَاتَكَ فَقَدْ عَلِمْنَا فَمَا لَنَا فِي وَفَاتِكَ فَقَالَ أَمَّا فِي حَيَاتِي فَإِنَّ اللَّهَ عَزَّ وَ جَلَّ قَالَ وَ ما كانَ اللَّهُ لِيُعَذِّبَهُمْ وَ أَنْتَ فِيهِمْ وَ أَمَّا فِي مَمَاتِي فَتُعْرَضُ عَلَيَّ أَعْمَالُكُمْ فَأَسْتَغْفِرُ لَكُمْ.


362. Ali, from his father, from Ibn Abu Umeyr, from Muhammad Bin Abu Hamza and someone else, has reported the following: Abu Abdullah (a.s.) says that the Rasool Allah (saww) said: ‘There is goodness for you in my (saww) being alive and goodness for you in my (saww) passing away’. So they said, ‘O Rasool Allah (saww)! As for your (saww) being alive, so we have known that. So what is (goodness) for us in your (saww) passing away?’ He (saww) said: ‘As for my (saww) being alive, so Allah (azwj) Mighty and Majestic has Said: “[8:33] But Allah was not going to chastise them while you were among them”. And as for my (saww) passing away, your deeds would get presented to me (saww), so I (saww) would be seeking Forgiveness for you’.
