It was narrated to us by al-Ḥussain bin Aḥmed bin Idrīs رحمه الله, who said – it was narrated to me by my father, from Ayūb bin Nūḥ, from Moḥammed bin Ziyād, from Ghayāth bin Ibrāhīm, from al-Ṣādiq Jaʿfar bin Moḥammed, from his father, from his forefathers عليهم السلام, who said:

The Messenger of Allāh صلى الله عليه وآله said: Whoever does good with what is remaining in his life, he will not be punished for what has passed from his sins. Whoever does evil with what is remaining in his life, he will be punished for the first [of his sins] and the last.

حدثنا الحسين بن أحمد بن إدريس ( رحمه الله ) ، قال : حدثني أبي ، عن أيوب بن نوح ، عن محمد بن زياد ، عن غياث بن إبراهيم ، عن الصادق جعفر بن محمد ، عن أبيه ، عن آبائه ( عليهم السلام ) ، قال : قال رسول الله ( صلى الله عليه وآله ) : من أحسن فيما بقي من عمره ، لم يؤاخذ بما مضى من ذنبه ، ومن أساء فيما بقي من عمره أخذ بالأول والآخر .
