Hadith #2

أَبِی ره قَالَ حَدَّثَنِی سَعْدُ بْنُ عَبْدِ اللَّهِ عَنْ أَحْمَدَ بْنِ مُحَمَّدِ بْنِ عِیسَی عَنِ الْحُسَیْنِ بْنِ سَعِیدٍ عَنْ أَخِیهِ الْحَسَنِ عَنْ زُرْعَهَ بْنِ مُحَمَّدٍ الْحَضْرَمِیِّ عَنْ سَمَاعَهَ بْنِ مِهْرَانَ قَالَ سَمِعْتُهُ یَقُولُ إِنَّ اللَّهَ عَزَّ وَ جَلَّ وَعَدَ فِی مَالِ الْیَتِیمِ عُقُوبَتَیْنِ أَمَّا أَحَدُهُمَا فَعُقُوبَهُ الْآخِرَهِ النَّارُ وَ أَمَّا عُقُوبَهُ الدُّنْیَا فَهُوَ قَوْلُهُ عَزَّ وَ جَلَّ- وَ لْیَخْشَ الَّذِینَ لَوْ تَرَکُوا مِنْ خَلْفِهِمْ ذُرِّیَّهً ضِعافاً خافُوا عَلَیْهِمْ فَلْیَتَّقُوا اللَّهَ وَ لْیَقُولُوا قَوْلًا سَدِیداً یَعْنِی بِذَلِکَ لِیَخْشَ أَنْ أَخْلُفَهُ فِی ذُرِّیَّتِهِ کَمَا صَنَعَ هُوَ بِهَؤُلَاءِ الْیَتَامَی.

2. It is narrated that Imam (a.s.) said, “The Almighty Allah has promised two punishments for those who usurp the wealth of orphans forcefully. One of these is the punishment of hereafter and that is the fire of Hell. Another is the punishment of this world and Allah says regarding this: And let those fear who, should they leave behind them weakly offspring, would fear on their account, so let them be careful of (their duty to) Allah, and let them speak right words. Because your children can be dealt in the similar way as you deal with other orphans.”
