Al-Khiṣāl > There Are Three Friends for a Muslim
Hadith #1

3-92 حدثنا أبي رضي الله عنه قال: حدثنا عبد الله بن جعفر الحميري، عن هارون بن مسلم، عن مسعدة بن زياد، عن جعفر بن محمد، عن أبيه، عن جده عليهم السلام قال: قال علي عليه السلام: إن للمرء المسلم ثلاثة أخلاء فخليل يقول: أنا معك حيا وميتا وهو عمله، وخليل يقول له: أنا معك إلى باب قبرك ثم أخليك وهو ولده، وخليل يقول له: أنا معك إلى أن تموت وهو ماله. فاذا مات صار للوارث

3-92 (The compiler of the book narrated) that his father - may God be pleased with him - narrated that Abdullah ibn Ja’far al-Homayry quoted Harun ibn Muslim, on the authority of Mus’adat ibn Zyad, on the authority of Ja’far ibn Muhammad as-Sadiq (MGB), on the authority of his father Al-Baqir (MGB), on the authority of his grandfather (MGB) that Ali (MGB) said, “There are three friends for a Muslim. There is a friend who says, ‘I will be with you in your life and death!’ That is his deeds! There is a friend who says, ‘I will be with you until you are put into the grave. Then I will abandon you.’ That is his child! There is a friend who says, ‘I will be with you until your death.’ That is his wealth which will be that of his inheritors once he dies.’”
