Chapter 4: The (Group Of) Sixes

٤ - باب الستة

عنه، عن محمد بن عيسى، عن خلف بن حماد، عن علي بن عثمان بن رزين، عمن رواه، عن أمير المؤمنين (ع)، قال: ست خصال من كن فيه كان بين يدي الله وعن يمينه، إن الله يحب المرء المسلم الذي يحب لأخيه ما يحب لنفسه، ويكره له ما يكره لنفسه، ويناصحه الولاية، ويعرف فضلي، ويطأ عقبي، وينتظر عاقبتي.

From him, from Muhammad Bin Isa, from Khalaf Bin Hamaad, from Ali Bin Usman Bin Razeyn, from the one who reported it, (It has been narrated) from Amir-ul-Mu’mineen (asws) having said: ‘If one has in him six qualities would be in front of Allah (azwj) and from His (azwj) right. Allah (azwj) Loves the Muslim person who loves for his brother what he loves for himself, and dislikes for him what he dislikes for himself, and advises him of the Wilayah, and recognises my (asws) merits, and sets foot in my (asws) footsteps, and awaits my (asws) what I (asws) award’.1

عنه، رفعه إلى أبي عبد الله (ع) قال: ستة أشياء ليس للعباد فيها صنع، المعرفة، والجهل، والرضى، والغضب، والنوم، واليقظة،

From him, raising it to Abu Abdullah (asws) having said: ‘(There are) Six things in which there is not for the servants to make – (out of his control) understanding, ignorance, pleasure, anger, sleep, and wakefulness’.2

عنه، عن داود النهدي، عن علي بن أسباط، عن الحلبي، رفعه إلى أمير المؤمنين (ع) قال: إن الله تبارك وتعالى يعذب الستة بالستة، العرب بالعصبية، والدهاقنة بالكبر، والامراء بالجور، والفقهاء بالحسد، والتجار بالخيانة، وأهل الرستاق بالجهل.

From him, from Dawood Al Nahdy, from Ali Bin Asbaat, from Al Halby, raising it to Amir-ul-Mu’mineen (asws) having said: ‘Allah (azwj) Blessed and High will Punish six due to six – the Arab due to their prejudice; the Dahaaqana for their arrogance; the rich for their compulsion; the jurists for their envy; the businessman for their treachery; and the people of Al-Rastaaq for their ignorance’.3

عنه، عن أبيه، عن محمد بن سليمان الديلمي، عن أبيه، عن أبي عبد الله (ع) قال: قال رسول الله صلى الله عليه وآله: ستة كرهها الله لي فكرهتها للأئمة من ذريتي وكرهها الأئمة لاتباعهم، العبث في الصلاة، والمن في الصدقة، والرفث في الصيام، والضحك بين القبور، والتطلع في الدور، وإتيان المساجد جنبا.

From him, from his father, from Muhammad Bin Suleyman Al Daylami, from his father, (It has been narrated) from Abu Abdullah (asws) having said: ‘Rasul Allah (saww) said: ‘Six (matters) Allah (azwj) has Disliked for me (asws), so I (asws) dislike these for the Imams (asws) from my (saww) offspring, and dislike it for the Imams (asws) to follow them – the improperness in Prayer, and the self-conceit in charity, and Al-Rafas during Fasting, and the laughing between graves, and looking ahead during circumambulation (of the Kabah), and coming to the Masjid by the side (not attentive and without facing it)’.

قال: قلت: وما الرفث في الصيام؟ - قال: ما كره الله لمريم في قوله " إني نذرت للرحمن صوما فلن أكلم اليوم إنسيا " قال: قلت: صمتت من أي شئ؟ - قال: من الكذب.

I said, ‘And what is Al-Rafas during Fasting?’ He (asws) said: ‘What Allah (azwj) Disliked for Maryam(as) in His (azwj) Words [19:26] I have vowed a Fast to the Beneficent, so I shall not speak to any human today’. I said, ‘Fasted from which thing?’ He (asws) said: ‘From lies’.4
