عِدَّةٌ مِنْ أَصْحَابِنَا عَنْ أَحْمَدَ بْنِ مُحَمَّدٍ عَنِ ابْنِ أَبِي نَجْرَانَ عَنْ مُحَمَّدِ بْنِ الْقَاسِمِ عَنْ عَلِيِّ بْنِ الْمُغِيرَةِ عَنْ أَبِي عَبْدِ اللَّهِ ( عليه السلام ) قَالَ سَمِعْتُهُ يَقُولُ إِذَا بَلَغَ الْمُؤْمِنُ أَرْبَعِينَ سَنَةً آمَنَهُ اللَّهُ مِنَ الْأَدْوَاءِ الثَّلَاثَةِ الْبَرَصِ وَ الْجُذَامِ وَ الْجُنُونِ فَإِذَا بَلَغَ الْخَمْسِينَ خَفَّفَ اللَّهُ عَزَّ وَ جَلَّ حِسَابَهُ فَإِذَا بَلَغَ سِتِّينَ سَنَةً رَزَقَهُ اللَّهُ الْإِنَابَةَ فَإِذَا بَلَغَ السَّبْعِينَ أَحَبَّهُ أَهْلُ السَّمَاءِ فَإِذَا بَلَغَ الثَّمَانِينَ أَمَرَ اللَّهُ عَزَّ وَ جَلَّ بِإِثْبَاتِ حَسَنَاتِهِ وَ إِلْقَاءِ سَيِّئَاتِهِ فَإِذَا بَلَغَ التِّسْعِينَ غَفَرَ اللَّهُ تَبَارَكَ وَ تَعَالَى لَهُ مَا تَقَدَّمَ مِنْ ذَنْبِهِ وَ مَا تَأَخَّرَ وَ كُتِبَ أَسِيرَ اللَّهِ فِي أَرْضِهِ وَ فِي رِوَايَةٍ أُخْرَى فَإِذَا بَلَغَ الْمِائَةَ فَذَلِكَ أَرْذَلُ الْعُمُرِ.

83. A number of our companions, from Ahmad Bin Muhammad, from Ibn Abu Najran, from Muhammad Bin Al-Qasim, from Ali Bin Al-Mugheira, who has said the following: Abu Abdullah (a.s.) said, ‘I heard him (a.s.) saying: ‘When the ‘Momin’ (believer) reaches forty years, Allah Secures him from three illnesses – the leprosy, and the albinism and the madness. So when he reaches fifty, Allah Makes his Accounting to be light. When he reaches sixty years, Allah Grants him the repentance. So when he reaches seventy, the inhabitants of the sky love him. So when he reaches eighty, Allah Commands to Write down his good deeds and Deletes his bad deeds. So when he reaches ninety, Allah Forgives him what has preceded from his Religion and what has been delayed and Writes him down as a prisoner of Allah in His earth’. And in another report – ‘So when he reaches a hundred, so that is the very (feeble) end of life’.
