باب القول عند دخول المقابر

The saying upon entering the graveyard


قال الصادق (عليه السلام): لما أشرف أمير المؤمنين (عليه السلامعلى القبور ، قاليا أهل التربة، يا أهل الغربة، أما الدور فقد سكنت، وأما الأزواج فقد نكحت، وأما الأموال فقد قسمت فهذا خبر ما عندنا، فما خبر ما عندكم؟


as-Sadiq عليه السلام said: When Amir al-Mu’mineen عليه السلام looked over the graves, he said: O people of the dirt, O people of estrangement, as to the homes they have been inhabited, and as to the wives they have been married, and as to the properties they have been divided.  This is the report of what is with us, so what is the report of what is with you?


ثم التفت إلى أصحابه فقال لهم : لو أذن لهم في الكلام، لأخبروكم أن خيرالزاد التقوى .


Then he turned to his companions, and he said to them: Were they given permission to speak, they would inform you that the best of provisions is the fear of God (at-taqwa).
