7. The Sanctity of the Guests of Allah


عَنْ أَبِي عَبْدِ اللٌّهِ (ع) قَالَ: أَلْحَاجُّ وَ الْمُعْتَمِرُ وَفْدُ اللٌّهِ إِنْ سَأَلُوهُ أَعْطَاهُمْ وَ إِنْ دَعُوهُ أَجَابَهُمْ وَ إِنْ شَفَعُوا شَفَعَهُمْ وَ إِنْ سَكَتُوا إِبْتَدَاهُمْ وَ يُعَوَّضُونَ بِالدِّرْهَمِ أَلْفَ أَلْفَ دِرْهَمٍ.

It has been narrated from Abi ‘Abdillah Imam Ja’far Ibn Muhammad as-Sadiq that he said, “Those who perform the Hajj and the ‘Umrah are the guests of Allah.  If they ask Him for something, He will grant it to them; if they call upon Him then He will answer them; if they intercede (for others), their intercession will be accepted; if they remain quiet, then He will begin to speak to them; for every dirham which they spend (in their trip to the Hajj), they will receive one million dirhams in return.”
