Back to chapter

1ـ عَلِيُّ بْنُ إِبْرَاهِيمَ عَنْ أَبِيهِ عَنِ ابْنِ أَبِي عُمَيْرٍ عَنْ جَمِيلِ بْنِ صَالِحٍ عَنْ بَعْضِ أَشْيَاخِ بَنِي النَّجَاشِيِّ عَنْ أَبِي عَبْدِ الله (عَلَيهِ السَّلام) قَالَ رَأْسُ طَاعَةِ الله الصَّبْرُ وَالرِّضَا عَنِ الله فِيمَا أَحَبَّ الْعَبْدُ أَوْ كَرِهَ وَلا يَرْضَى عَبْدٌ عَنِ الله فِيمَإ؛ّّ أَحَبَّ أَوْ كَرِهَ إِلا كَانَ خَيْراً لَهُ فِيمَا أَحَبَّ أَوْ كَرِهَ.


1. Ali ibn Ibrahim has narrated from his father from ibn abu ‘Umayr from Jamil ibn Salih from certain shaykhs of Banu al-Najashi from abu ‘Abd Allah (a.s.) who has said the following: “The head of obedience to Allah is patience and agreeing with the decisions of Allah in all matters whether a servant may love or dislike doing so. Of the servant of Allah anyone who agrees with the decisions of Allah in all matters which he loves or dislikes, should know that agreeing, in fact, is in his best interest.”
