عِدَّةٌ مِنْ أَصْحَابِنَا عَنْ أَحْمَدَ بْنِ مُحَمَّدِ بْنِ خَالِدٍ عَنْ عُثْمَانَ بْنِ عِيسَى عَنْ أَبِي إِسْحَاقَ الْجُرْجَانِيِّ عَنْ أَبِي عَبْدِ اللَّهِ (عليه السلام) قَالَ إِنَّ اللَّهَ عَزَّ وَ جَلَّ جَعَلَ لِمَنْ جَعَلَ لَهُ سُلْطَاناً أَجَلًا وَ مُدَّةً مِنْ لَيَالٍ وَ أَيَّامٍ وَ سِنِينَ وَ شُهُورٍ فَإِنْ عَدَلُوا فِي النَّاسِ أَمَرَ اللَّهُ عَزَّ وَ جَلَّ صَاحِبَ الْفَلَكِ أَنْ يُبْطِئَ بِإِدَارَتِهِ فَطَالَتْ أَيَّامُهُمْ وَ لَيَالِيهِمْ وَ سِنِينُهُمْ وَ شُهُورُهُمْ وَ إِنْ جَارُوا فِي النَّاسِ وَ لَمْ يَعْدِلُوا أَمَرَ اللَّهُ تَبَارَكَ وَ تَعَالَى صَاحِبَ الْفَلَكِ فَأَسْرَعَ بِإِدَارَتِهِ فَقَصُرَتْ لَيَالِيهِمْ وَ أَيَّامُهُمْ وَ سِنِينُهُمْ وَ شُهُورُهُمْ وَ قَدْ وَفَى لَهُمْ عَزَّ وَ جَلَّ بِعَدَدِ اللَّيَالِي وَ الشُّهُورِ.


401. A number of our companions, from Ahmad Bin Muhammad Bin Khalid, from Usman Bin Isa, from Abu Is’haq Al-Jurjany, who has narrated the following: Abu Abdullah (asws) has said that: ‘Allah (azwj) has Set a term for the one for whom He (azwj) Made to be in authority, and a time period of nights, and days, and years and months. So if they behave with justice among the people, Allah (azwj) Commands the Master of the Orbits to slow down the administration, so as to prolong their days, and their nights, and their years, and their months. And if they are tyrannous among the people and are unjust, Allah (azwj) Commands the Master of the Orbits to quicken its administration, so as to reduce their nights, and their days, and their years, and their months. And Allah (azwj) has Fulfilled for them the numbers of the nights and the months’.
