7 - قال: أخبرني أبو الحسن أحمد بن محمد بن الحسن بن الوليد رحمه الله عن أبيه، عن سعد بن عبد الله، عن أحمد بن محمد بن عيسى، عن الحسن بن محبوب، عن إبراهيم الكرخي قال: سمعت أبا عبد الله جعفر بن محمد عليهما السلام يقول: لا يجمع الله لمؤمن الورع والزهد في الدنيا إلا رجوت له الجنة، ثم قال: وإني لأحب للرجل المؤمن منكم إذا قام في صلاته أن يقبل بقلبه إلى الله تعالى ولا يشغله بأمر الدنيا، فليس من مؤمن يقبل بقلبه في صلاته إلى الله إلا أقبل الله إليه بوجهه، وأقبل بقلوب المؤمنين إليه بالمحبة له بعد حب الله إياه.


7. He said: Abul Hasan Ahmad ibn Muhammad ibn al-Hasan ibn al-Walid - may Allah bless him with mercy, reported to me from his father, from Sa’d ibn Abdillah, from Ahmad ibn Muhammad ibn Isa, from al-Hasan ibn Mahboob, from Ibrahim al-Karkhi who said: I heard Abu Abdillah Ja’far ibn Muhammad, peace be upon him, say: "When Allah combines in the heart of a believer the virtues of guarding from the forbidden evils and renouncing the world, I pray that Allah grant him paradise." Then he added: "I love to find a believing person from you standing for his daily prayers, with all his heart and mind set for Allah; not digressed by any worldly anxieties. And when a faithful comes to his Sustainer with all his heart and mind, then Allah turns His attention towards him; and after He has confirmed His love for him, He fills the people’s heart with His love."
