Al-‘Āmāli, Al-Shaykh al-Ṣadūq, The Fourteenth Assembly – Ḥadīth #2

It was narrated to us by my father رحمه الله, who said – it was narrated to us by Saʿd bin ʿAbd Allāh, who said – it was narrated to us by Aḥmed ibn Moḥammed bin ʿĪsa, from al-Ḥussain bin Saʿīd, from Fadhālah, from Sayf bin ʿUmayra, from ʿUbayd Allāh bin ʿAbd Allāh, from the one who heard Abā Jaʿfar al-Bāqir عليه السلام say:

When it was three days remaining from [the month] of Shaʿbān, and the Month of Ramadhān [had almost] arrived, the Messenger of Allāh صلى الله عليه وآله said to Bilāl: Call the people to come.
So he gathered the people, then he sat upon the pulpit and praised Allāh and extolled him. He then said: Oh people, indeed this month has come to you, and it is the master of the months. Within it is a night that is better than one thousand months. Within it the doors of the fires are locked, and within it the doors of the heavens are open. Whoever faces it (this month) and [leaves it] without being forgiven, Allāh takes him away; and whoever faces his parents, and is not forgiven, Allāh takes him away; and whoever does not send his blessings upon me when I am mentioned, and is not forgiven, Allāh takes him away.

حدثنا أبي ( رحمه الله ) ، قال : حدثنا سعد بن عبد الله ، قال : حدثني أحمد ابن محمد بن عيسى ، عن الحسين بن سعيد ، عن فضالة ، عن سيف بن عميرة ، عن عبيد الله بن عبد الله ، عمن سمع أبا جعفر الباقر ( عليه السلام ) ، قال : قال رسول الله ( صلى الله عليه وآله ) لما حضر شهر رمضان ، وذلك لثلاث بقين من شعبان ، قال لبلال : ناد في الناس ، فجمع الناس ، ثم صعد المنبر ، فحمد الله وأثنى عليه ، ثم قال : أيها الناس ، إن هذا الشهر قد حضركم ، وهو سيد الشهور ، فيه ليلة خير من ألف شهر ، تغلق فيه أبواب النيران ، وتفتح فيه أبواب الجنان ، فمن أدركه فلم يغفر له فأبعده الله ، ومن أدرك والديه فلم يغفر له فأبعده الله ، ومن ذكرت عنده فلم يصل علي فلم يغفر له فأبعده الله .

It was narrated to us by It was narrated to us by al-Shaykh, al-Faqih al-Ṣadūq (Abū Jaʿfar Moḥammed bin ʿAlī bin al-Ḥussain bin Mūsa bin Bābawayh al-Qummi رضي الله عنه), who said – It was narrated to us by Moḥammed bin al-Ḥussain bin Aḥmed bin al-Walīd رحمه الله, who said – it was narrated to us by al-Ḥussain bin al-Ḥassan bin Ābān, from al-Ḥussain bin Saʿīd, from ibn Abī ʿUmayr, from Jamīl bin Ṣāliḥ, from Moḥammed bin Marwān, who said:

I heard al-Ṣādiq Jaʿfar bin Moḥammed عليهما السلام say: Indeed, in every night of the Month of Ramadhān, Allāh – Blessed and High – liberates and unchains all from the fire, except those who break their fast with intoxicants. When it is the last night of it (the Month of Ramadhān), He liberates in it the same [quantity] as what he liberated in all of it (the other nights) combined.

حدثنا الشيخ الفقيه أبو جعفر محمد بن علي بن الحسين بن موسى بن بابويه القمي ( رضي الله عنه ) ، قال : حدثنا محمد بن الحسن بن أحمد بن الوليد ( رحمه الله ) ، قال : حدثنا الحسين بن الحسن بن أبان ، عن الحسين بن سعيد ، عن ابن أبي عمير ، عن جميل بن صالح ، عن محمد بن مروان ، قال : سمعت الصادق جعفر بن محمد ( عليهما السلام ) يقول : إن لله تبارك وتعالى في كل ليلة من شهر رمضان عتقاء وطلقاء من النار إلا من أفطر على مسكر ، فإذا كان آخر ليلة منه أعتق فيها مثل ما أعتق في جميعه .

Al-‘Āmāli, Al-Shaykh al-Ṣadūq, The Thirteenth Assembly – Ḥadīth #10

It was narrated to us by Jaʿfar bin Moḥammed bin Masrūr رحمه الله, who said – it was narrated to us by al-Ḥussain bin Moḥammed bin ʿĀmir, from al-Maʿli bin Moḥammed al-Baṣri, from Jaʿfar bin Sulaymān, from ʿAbd Allāh bin al-Ḥakam, from his father, from Saʿīd bin Jubayr, from ibn ʿAbbās, who said:

The Prophet صلى الله عليه وآله said: Indeed, ʿAlī is my successor and caliph; and his wife, my daughter – Fāṭima, is the Mistress of the women of the worlds; and al-Ḥassan and al-Ḥussain – my sons – are the Masters of the youths of the people of Paradise. Whoever loves them has in fact loved me, and whoever has enmity towards them in fact has enmity towards me. Whoever shows hostility towards them has in fact shown hostility towards me, and whoever forsakes them has in fact forsaken me. Whoever is benevolent towards them is in fact benevolent towards me. Allāh unites with whoever unites with them, and cuts off from whoever cuts off from them. He helps whoever supports them, and deserts whoever deserts them. Oh Allāh, whoever from your prophets and messengers had a weighty thing (thaql) and holy household (ahl bayt) – so ʿAlī, Fāṭima, al-Ḥassan and al-Ḥussain are my holy household and weighty thing, so remove from them impurity (al-rijs) and purify them a thorough purification.

وصلى الله على رسوله محمد وآله

حدثنا جعفر بن محمد بن مسرور ( رحمه الله ) ، قال : حدثنا الحسين بن محمد بن عامر ، عن المعلى بن محمد البصري ، عن جعفر بن سليمان ، عن عبد الله بن الحكم ، عن أبيه ، عن سعيد بن جبير ، عن ابن عباس ، قال : قال النبي ( صلى الله عليه وآله ) : إن عليا وصيي وخليفتي ، وزوجته فاطمة سيدة نساء العالمين ابنتي ، والحسن والحسين سيدا شباب أهل الجنة ولداي ، من والاهم فقد والاني ، ومن عاداهم فقد عاداني ، ومن ناوأهم فقد ناوأني ، ومن جفاهم فقد جفاني ، ومن برهم فقد برني ، وصل الله من وصلهم ، وقطع من قطعهم ، ونصر من أعانهم ، وخذل من خذلهم ، اللهم من كان له من أنبيائك ورسلك ثقل وأهل بيت ، فعلي وفاطمة والحسن والحسين أهل بيتي وثقلي ، فأذهب عنهم الرجس وطهرهم تطهيرا .
وصلى الله على رسوله محمد وآله

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 .

It was narrated to us by al-Ḥussain bin Ibrāhīm bin Nātānah رحمه الله, who said – it was narrated to us by ʿAlī bin Ibrāhīm, from his father, from Moḥammed bin Abī ʿUmayr, from ʿAbd Allāh bin al-Fadhl al-Hāshimi, from al-Ṣādiq Jaʿfar bin Moḥammed, from his father, from his forefathers عليهم السلام, who said:1

The Messenger of Allāh صلى الله عليه وآله said: Glad tidings to the one whose life is long and his deeds are good; for his return is good if his Lord, Mighty and Majestic, is pleased with him. Woe upon the one whose life is long and deeds are vile; for his return is vile if his Lord, Mighty and Majestic, is displeased with him.

1. al-Shaykh Hādi al-Najafi says this ḥadīth has a reliable (muʿtabar) chain [Mawsūʿat al-Aḥādīth ahl al-Bayt, Volume 7, Page 305, #20 / 8852]

حدثنا الحسين بن إبراهيم بن ناتانه ( رحمه الله ) ، قال : حدثنا علي بن إبراهيم ، عن أبيه ، عن محمد بن أبي عمير ، عن عبد الله بن الفضل الهاشمي ، عن الصادق جعفر بن محمد ، عن أبيه ، عن آبائه ( عليهم السلام ) ، قال : قال رسول الله ( صلى الله عليه وآله ) : طوبى لمن طال عمره وحسن عمله فحسن منقلبه إذ رضي عنه ربه عز وجل ، وويل لمن طال عمره وساء عمله ، فساء منقلبه إذ سخط عليه ربه عز وجل .

Al-‘Āmāli, Al-Shaykh al-Ṣadūq, The Thirteenth Assembly – Ḥadīth #7

It was narrated to us by ʿAlī bin Aḥmed bin ʿAbd Allāh bin Aḥmed bin Abī ʿAbd Allāh al-Barqi, who said – it was narrated to us by my father, from Aḥmed bin Abī ʿAbd Allāh, from Abī Ayūb Sulaymān bin Maqabil al-Madīni, from Moḥammed bin Abī ʿUmayr, from Hishām bin Sālim:

From al-Ṣādiq Jaʿfar bin Moḥammed عليهم السلام, who said: Whoever affiliates with one who is a carper to us, or praises one who is abhorrent to us, or makes ties with one who is cut off from us, or cuts off ties with one who has made ties with us, or befriends one who is an enemy to us, or has enmity with one who is friends with us – indeed he has disbelieved in the One who brought down the seven repeated verses1 and the mighty Qur’ān.

1. The seven repeated verses (al-Sabʿ al-Mathāni) is usually considered in reference to al-Fātiḥa. Al-Mathāni is more literally translated as twice. Scholars have stated that al-Fātiḥa is given this title because it is repeated twice in every obligatory prayers. The other opinion is that it was revealed twice, once in Mekka and once in Medina.

حدثنا علي بن أحمد بن عبد الله بن أحمد بن أبي عبد الله البرقي ، قال : حدثنا أبي ، عن أحمد بن أبي عبد الله ، عن أبي أيوب سليمان بن مقبل المديني ، عن محمد بن أبي عمير ، عن هشام بن سالم ، عن الصادق جعفر بن محمد ( عليهم السلام ) ، قال : من جالس لنا عائبا ، أو مدح لنا قاليا ، أو واصل لنا قاطعا ، أو قطع لنا واصلا ، أو والى لنا عدوا ، أو عادى لنا وليا فقد كفر بالذي أنزل السبع المثاني والقرآن العظيم .

Al-‘Āmāli, Al-Shaykh al-Ṣadūq, The Thirteenth Assembly – Ḥadīth #6

It was narrated to me by Moḥammed bin Mūsa bin al-Mutawakkil رحمه الله, who said – it was narrated to me by ʿAlī bin al-Ḥussain al-Saʿd  Ābādi, who said – it was narrated to me by Aḥmed Abī bin ʿAbd Allāh al-Barqi, from his father, from Moḥammed ibn Ziyād, from Ābān and others:

From al-Ṣādiq Jaʿfar bin Moḥammed عليهما السلام, who said: Whoever completes his [month of] fasting with a righteous statement or a righteous action, Allāh will accept his fasts from him.
It was asked: Oh son of the Messenger of Allāh, what is the righteous statement?
He replied: The testimony of ‘there is no god by Allāh’; and the righteous action is the payment of the fast-breaking alms (al-fiṭrah).

حدثنا محمد بن موسى بن المتوكل ( رحمه الله ) ، قال : حدثنا علي بن الحسين السعد آبادي ، قال : حدثنا أحمد بن أبي عبد الله البرقي ، عن أبيه ، عن محمد ابن زياد ، عن أبان وغيره ، عن الصادق جعفر بن محمد ( عليهما السلام ) ، قال : من ختم صيامه بقول صالح أو عمل صالح تقبل الله منه صيامه . فقيل له : يا بن رسول الله ، ما القول الصالح ؟ قال : شهادة أن لا إله إلا الله ، والعمل الصالح : إخراج الفطرة .

Al-‘Āmāli, Al-Shaykh al-Ṣadūq, The Thirteenth Assembly – Ḥadīth #5

It was narrated to us by my father رحمه الله, who said – it was narrated to us by Saʿd bin ʿAbd Allāh, who said – it was narrated to us by Aḥmed bin Moḥammed, from al-Ḥussain bin Saʿīd, from ibn Abī ʿUmayr, from Muʿawiyah bin Wahab, from ʿAmru bin Nahīk, from Salām al-Makki:

From Abī Jaʿfar al-Bāqir عليه السلام, who said: A man named Shaybah al-Hidhali1 came to the Prophet صلى الله عليه وآله and said: Oh Messenger of Allāh, I am an old man that has grown in age, and my strength has been weakened from the actions that I had habituated myself with from praying, fasting, pilgrimage and jihād; so teach me – oh Messenger of Allāh – some words that Allāh will benefit me with, and make it easy on me, oh Messenger of Allāh.
He replied: Repeat it.
So he repeated it three times.
Then the Messenger of Allāh صلى الله عليه وآله said: There is no tree or clod of mud around you that did not cry from your mercy.2 When you pray the morning prayers, say ten times: ‘Glory be to Allāh, the Mighty, and by His Mercy; there is no strength or power except through Allāh, the High, the Mighty’ (ṢubḥānAllāh al-ʿAdhīm wa biḥamdih, lā ḥowla wa lā quwata illa billah al-ʿAlī al-Adhīm). Indeed Allāh, Mighty and Majestic, will cure you with that from blindness, delirium, leprosy, poverty, and decrepitude.
He replied: Oh Messenger of Allāh, this is for this worldly life, but what about the hereafter?
He said: Say at the end of each prayer: ‘Oh Allāh, grant me from what is with You; and scatter upon me a portion of Your Bounties; and spread upon me a portion of Your Mercy; and bring down upon a portion of Your Blessings.
He (the narrator) said: He clinched them with his hand3 and then departed. Then a man said to ibn ʿAbbās:4 How tightly your uncle held onto what he clinched!
The Prophet صلى الله عليه وآله replied to them: If he comes on the Day of Judgement without intentionally abandoning it (i.e. the four statements), the eight doors of Paradise opens for him, and he enters it from whichever one he wishes.5

1. The name Shaybah al-Hidhali is the same in the version found in Thawāb al-Aʿmāl. However in al-Tahdhīb it is Shaybah al-Hadhīl and in al-Khiṣāl (which varies slightly in its contents – some which we will mention in the footnotes that follow) it is Qayṣah bin Mukhāriq al-Hilāli.
2. In a similar narration in al-Khiṣāl, it says ‘There is no tree or clod of mud around you that did not cry in mercy over you.’
3. He clinched them with his hand: Meaning he counted the four statements on his fingers and memorised them.
4. In al-Khiṣāl: Abū Bakr said to ʿUmar.
5. In al-Khiṣāl: The narration ends with one of the narrators within the chain, Abū Harmaz Nafiʿ bin ʿAbd Allāh al-Khorasāni, said that he narrated this narration to a neighbour of mine who was a friend of Ḥassan.6 […]

It was narrated to us by my father رحمه الله, who said – it was narrated to us by Saʿd bin ʿAbd Allāh, who said – it was narrated to us by al-Haytham bin Abī Masrūq al-Nahdi, from al-Ḥussain bin ʿIlwān, from ʿAmru bin Thābit, who said – it was narrated to me by ibn Ḥamrān:

From al-Ṣādiq Jaʿfar bin Moḥammed عليهم السلام, whereupon he said: Whoever glorifies Allāh (sabbaḥ, i.e. says SubḥanAllāh) thirty times everyday, Allāh, Blessed and High, will eliminate from him seventy types of adversities – the least of it being poverty.

حدثنا أبي ( رحمه الله ) ، قال : حدثنا سعد بن عبد الله ، قال : حدثنا الهيثم بن أبي مسروق النهدي ، عن الحسين بن علوان ، عن عمرو بن ثابت ، قال : حدثني محمد ابن حمران ، عن الصادق جعفر بن محمد ( عليهم السلام ) ، أنه قال : من سبح الله كل يوم ثلاثين مرة دفع الله تبارك وتعالى عنه سبعين نوعا من البلاء أدناها الفقر .

It was narrated to us by Moḥammed bin al-Ḥassan رضي الله عنه, who said – it was narrated to us by Moḥammed bin al-Ḥassan al-Ṣaffār, who said – it was narrated to us by al-ʿAbbās bin Maʿrūf, from Moḥammed bin Sinān, from Ṭalḥa bin Zayd, from al-Ṣādiq Jaʿfar bin Moḥammed, from his father, from his forefathers عليهم السلام, who said:

Whoever does takbīr (i.e. says Allāhu Akbar) one hundred times in the evening, it is as if he has unchained one hundred people.

حدثنا محمد بن الحسن ( رضي الله عنه ) ، قال : حدثنا محمد بن الحسن الصفار ، قال : حدثنا العباس بن معروف ، عن محمد بن سنان ، عن طلحة بن زيد ، عن الصادق جعفر بن محمد ، عن أبيه ، عن آبائه ( عليهم السلام ) ، قال : من كبر الله تبارك وتعالى عند المساء مائة تكبيرة ، كان كمن أعتق مائة نسمة .
