Back to chapter

5-59 حدثنا محمد بن علي ماجيلويه رضي الله عنه قال: حدثنا علي بن إبراهيم ابن هاشم، عن أبيه، عن عبد الله بن ميمون القداح، عن جعفر بن محمد، عن أبيه، عن آبائه، عن علي عليهم السلام قال: قال رسول الله صلى الله عليه وآله: استحيوا من الله حق الحياء، قالوا: وما نفعل يا رسول الله؟ قال:فإن كنتم فاعلين فلا يبيتن أحدكم إلا وأجله بين عينيه، وليحفظ الرأس وما وعى، والبطن وما حوى، وليذكر القبر والبلى، ومن أراد الآخرة فليدع زينة الحياة الدنيا


5-59 Muhammad ibn Ali Majiluyih - may God be pleased with him - narrated that Ali ibn Ibrahim ibn Hashim quoted his father, on the authority of Abdullah ibn Maymun al-Qad-dah, on the authority of Ja’far ibn Muhammad, on the authority of Ja’far ibn Muhammad as-Sadiq (MGB), on the authority of his father (MGB), on the authority of his forefathers (MGB), on the authority of Ali (MGB) that God’s Prophet (MGB) said, “You should be shy in front of God as He deserves.” He (MGB) was asked, “What should we do?” The Prophet (MGB) said, “If you do so, none of you will go to sleep without seeing your death with your own eyes. You should guard your mind and whatever goes on in it. You must guard your stomach and whatever goes into it. You should remember your grave and the fact that your body will spoil there. Whoever wants the Hereafter should abandon the adornments of the life of this world.”
