Back to chapter

- عنه، عن أبيه، عن محمد بن سنان، عن إسحاق بن جرير الحريري وعن رجل من أهل بيته عن أبى عبد الله (ع) قال: لما شيع أمير المؤمنين (ع) أبا ذر (ره) وشيعه الحسن والحسين (ع) وعقيل بن أبى طالب وعبد الله بن جعفر وعمار بن ياسر (رض) قال لهم أمير المؤمنين (ع): ودعوا أخاكم فانه لابد للشاخص من أن يمضى و للمشيع من أن يرجع، قال: فتكلم كل رجل منهم على حياله، فقال الحسين بن على (ع): رحمك الله يا أبا ذر إن القوم إنما امتهنوك بالبلاء لانك منعتهم دينك فمنعوك دنياهم، فما أحوجك غدا إلى ما منعتهم وأغناك عما منعوك! فقال أبو ذر (ره): " رحمكم الله من أهل بيت، فمالى في الدنيا من شجن غيركم، إنى إذا ذكرتكم ذكرت رسول الله صلى الله عليه وآله ".


1. From him, from his father, from Muhammad Bin Sinan, from Is’haq Bin Jareyr and from a man from his family, Abu Abdullah (a.s.) has said: ‘When Amir Al-Momineen (a.s.) paid the last honours to Abu Dharr (as), so did Al-Hassan (a.s.), and Al-Husayn (a.s.), and Aqeel (a.s.) Bin Abu Talib (a.s.), and Abdullah (a.s.) Bin Ja’far (a.s.), and Amaar (ra) Bin Yaasir. Amir Al-Momineen (a.s.) said to them: ‘Bid farewell to your brother (as), for it is a must for the one who is present that he goes, and for the one who leaves that he hopes (for the relief)’. He (a.s.) said: ‘So, every man from them spoke upon his (as) situation. Al-Husayn (a.s.) Bin Ali (a.s.) said: ‘May Allah (azwj) has Mercy on you (as), O Abu Dharr (as). But rather, the people tested you (as) with affliction, because you (as) prevented them from (invading) your (as) Religion, and they prevented you (as) from (invading) their world. So what is more needful tomorrow than what you (as) prevented them from, and more needless from what you (as) were prevent from?’ So Abu Dharr (as) said, ‘May Allah (azwj) have Mercy upon the People (a.s.) of the Household. So what is there for me (as) in the world from a sadness from others? Whenever I (as) remember you (a.s.), I (as) remember Rasool-Allah (saww)’.
