    Kitab Al Kafi – Volume 2 From him (–) his father (–) Sulaymãn al-Ja‘farī (–) Abu 'l-Ḥasan ar-Riḍã that his father (‘a.s.) said: Some people were taken to the Messenger of Allãh (ṣ.a.‘a.w.a.w.s.) during some of his expeditions (ghazawãt) against infidels.

    He(the messenger of Allah s.a.w) said: 'Who are these people?'

    They said:" (We are) believers, O Messenger of Allãh!'

    He said: 'What is the grade of your belief?'

    They said: 'Patience against calmity, thankful against trials, and content with the Divine decree.'

    The Messenger of Allãh (ṣ.a.‘a.w.a.w.s.) then said: 'These are the attributes of those who are patient among the scholars that due to the access of knowledge they are near to (the rank) of prophets. If you are as you described, then do not construct what you do not live in, and do not collect what you do not eat and fear Allãh to Whom you will be returned.' "

    Quran, Surah Hood, ayaat 114-115:

    وَأَقِمِ الصَّلَاةَ طَرَفَيِ النَّهَارِ وَزُلَفًا مِّنَ اللَّيْلِ ۚ إِنَّ الْحَسَنَاتِ يُذْهِبْنَ السَّيِّئَاتِ ۚ ذَٰلِكَ ذِكْرَىٰ لِلذَّاكِرِينَ
    And establish prayer at the two ends of the day and at the approach of the night. Indeed, good deeds do away with misdeeds. That is a reminder for those who remember.

    وَاصْبِرْ فَإِنَّ اللَّهَ لَا يُضِيعُ أَجْرَ الْمُحْسِنِينَ
    And be patient, for indeed, Allah does not allow to be lost the reward of those who do good.



    Fee dhilal al-Quran:
    "Following the right path during such times may be very hard. Indeed, believers
    may need to have something to comfort them. God, therefore, guides His Messenger
    and the believers to what gives them the greatest comfort: ‘Attend to your prayers at
    both ends of the day and in the early watches of the night.” (Verse 114) God knows that this
    is the source of comfort when every other source fails.
    Prayers strengthen the believer’s spirit, and sustain his heart and will to fulfil
    difficult duties. They also establish a bond between the hearts of afflicted believers
    and their merciful Lord, who is near and who responds to prayers. Prayers help to
    overcome loneliness and isolation in the face of a powerful, tyrannical society.
    The verse here mentions the two ends of the day, meaning the morning and the
    evening, and some watches of the night. These times cover all the obligatory prayers,
    without specifying their number. The number and the exact timing are specified by
    the traditions of the Prophet.
    The order to attend to prayers is followed by the statement that good does away
    with evil. This is a general statement which includes all good deeds. Prayer is one of
    the best deeds any person can do, hence it is one of the best actions for erasing sin
    and error. “This is a reminder for those who are thoughtful.” (Verse 114) Prayer is, in
    essence, a method of remembering God, and being thoughtful of Him. Hence, this
    comment is very apt here.
    To follow the right course and to maintain it requires patience. Similarly, awaiting
    the time God has set for the fulfilment of His promises and warnings requires
    patience. Hence, these orders are followed by another one: “And be patient in
    adversity; God does not fail to reward those who do good.” (Verse 115) To follow the right
    course is to do good; and to pray at the appointed times is to do good. Moreover, to
    be patient and to persevere against the unbelievers’ schemes is to do good. God will
    certainly reward those who do good."

    محمد بن يحيى، عن أحمد بن محمد، عن الحسن بن محبوب، عن أبي حمزة قال: سأل نافع بن الازرق أبا جعفر عليه السلام فقال: أخبرني عن الله متى كان؟ فقال: متى لم يكن حتى اخبرك متى كان، سبحان من لم يزل ولا يزال فردا صمدا لم يتخذ صاحبة ولا ولدا.
    Muhammad b. Yahya from Ahmad b. Muhammad from al-Hasan b. Mahbub from Abu Hamza.
    He said: Nafi` b. al-Azraq asked Abu Ja`far عليه السلام: Inform me about Allah – when did He come into being? So he said: [Tell me] when He did not exist, so that I can inform you when He came into being. Glory be to He who is unceasing and and unhalting. The One Eternally-Besought of All, who has neither held for Himself a female companion nor a child. (al-Kafi, Volume 1, hadith 232)

    محمد بن يحيى، عن أحمد بن محمد بن عيسى، عن ابن أبي نجران، عن عبد الله بن سنان، عن أبي عبد الله عليه السلام في قوله: " لا تدركه الابصار " قال: إحاطة الوهم ألا ترى إلى قوله: " قد جاء كم بصائر من ربكم " ليس يعني بصر العيون " فمن أبصر فلنفسه " ليس يعني من البصر بعينه " ومن عمي فعليها " ليس يعني عمى العيون إنما عنى إحاطة الوهم كما يقال: فلان بصير بالشعر، وفلان بصير بالفقه، وفلان بصير بالدراهم، وفلان بصير بالثياب، الله أعظم من أن يرى بالعين.

    Muhammad b. Yahya from Ahmad b. Muhammad b. `Isa from ibn Abi Najran from `Abdillah b. Sinan from Abu `Abdillah عليه السلام regarding His saying, “Sight does not comprehend Him” (6:103). He said: It refers to imagination (wahm). Have you not seen His saying, “Proofs have come unto you from your Lord…” (6:104) – it does not mean the sight of eyes – “… so whoever sees, it is for his own good…” (6:104) – it does not mean the sight of eyes – “…and whoever is blind is blind to his own hurt” (6:104) – it does not mean the sight of eyes; rather it refers to the confines of imagination, just as it is said, “fulan is keen-sighted in poetry, and fulan is keen-sighted in monetary issues, fulan is keen-sighted in clothing”. Allah is too great to be comprehended by eyes. (al-Kafi, Volume 1, hadith 262)

    (sahih) (صحيح)


    محمد بن يحيى، عن أحمد بن محمد، عن أبي هاشم الجعفري، عن أبي الحسن الرضا عليه السلام قال: سألته عن الله هل يوصف؟ فقال: أما تقرء القرآن؟ قلت: بلى قال: أما تقرء قوله تعالى: " لا تدركه الابصار وهو يدرك الابصار "؟ قلت: بلى، قال: فتعرفون الابصار؟ قلت: بلى، قال: ماهي؟ قلت: أبصار العيون، فقال إن أوهام القلوب أكبر من أبصار العيون فهو لا تدركه الاوهام وهو يدرك الاوهام.

    Muhammad b. Yahya from Ahmad b. Muhammad from Abi Hisham al-Ja`fari from Abu’l Hasan ar-Rida عليه السلام.
    He said: I asked him about Allah – can He be described? So he said: Have you not read the Qur’an? So I said: Of course. He said: Have you not read His تعالى saying, “Sight does not comprehend Him, and He comprehends all sight” (6:103)? I said: Of course. He said: Do they know [the meaning of] sight? So I said: Of course. He said: What is it? I said: The sight of eyes. So he said: The thoughts of the hearts are greater than the sight of eyes. He is not comprehended by thoughts, and He comprehends all thoughts. (al-Kafi, Volume 1, hadith 263)

    (sahih) (صحيح)



    Some of these hadiths make you realize why Muhammed pbuh told us he is leaving behind the Quran and his Ahlulbayt a.s. It brings fear of Allah swt into your heart and a realization Allah swt's transcendence and in-comparability.
