Hadith #7

أَبِی ره قَالَ حَدَّثَنِی سَعْدُ بْنُ عَبْدِ اللَّهِ عَنْ مُوسَی بْنِ جَعْفَرٍ الْبَغْدَادِیِّ عَنْ مُحَمَّدِ بْنِ الْحَسَنِ بْنِ شَمُّونٍ عَنْ عَلِیِّ بْنِ مُحَمَّدٍ النَّوْفَلِیِّ قَالَ سَمِعْتُهُ یَقُولُ إِنَّ الْعَبْدَ لَیَقُومُ فِی اللَّیْلِ فَیَمِیلُ بِهِ النُّعَاسُ یَمِیناً وَ شِمَالًا وَ قَدْ وَقَعَ ذَقَنُهُ عَلَی صَدْرِهِ فَیَأْمُرُ اللَّهُ تَبَارَکَ وَ تَعَالَی أَبْوَابَ السَّمَاءِ فَتُفَتَّحُ ثُمَّ یَقُولُ لِلْمَلَائِکَهِ انْظُرُوا إِلَی عَبْدِی مَا یُصِیبُهُ فِی التَّقَرُّبِ إِلَیَّ بِمَا لَمْ أَفْتَرِضْ عَلَیْهِ رَاجِیاً مِنِّی لِثَلَاثِ خِصَالٍ ذَنْباً أَغْفِرُهُ لَهُ أَوْ تَوْبَهً أُجَدِّدُهَا لَهُ أَوْ رِزْقاً أَزِیدُهُ فِیهِ فَأُشْهِدُکُمْ مَلَائِکَتِی أَنِّی قَدْ جَمَعْتُهُنَّ لَهُ.

7. The narrator says, “I heard him say that if one gets up at night after turning to his left and right in such a state that his chin is touching his chest (out of tiredness), Allah orders the doors of heavens to be opened and says to His angels: ‘Look at this servant of Mine. He is going to perform what is not even obligatory for him. He can expect three things from Me – that I forgive all his sins, I give him a chance to repent once again and increase his earnings. I hold you all angels as witness that I would grant all these things to him’.”
