4186.رسولُ اللَّهِ صلى اللَّه عليه وآله : مَن قادَ ضَريراً أربَعينَ خُطوَةً عَلى‏ أرضٍ سَهلَةٍ ، لا يَفي بِقَدرِ إبرَةٍ مِن جَميعِهِ طِلاعُ الأرضِ ذَهَباً ، فإن كانَ فيما قادَهُ مَهلَكَةٌ جَوَّزَهُ عَنها وَجَدَ ذلكَ في ميزانِ حَسَناتِهِ يَومَ القِيامَةِ أوسَعَ مِنَ الدّنيا مِائةَ ألفِ مَرَّةٍ .1

4186.The Prophet (SAWA) said, ‘He who leads a blind man forty steps on level ground, even if he was to be rewarded the whole world’s worth of gold, it would not be enough to recompense a needle’s worth of what that act deserves. And if there is a danger on the path which he averts him from, he will find that act on the Day of Resurrection within his balance of good deeds, larger than one hundred thousand times the expanse of the earth.’2

4187.رسولُ اللَّهِ صلى اللَّه عليه وآله : دَخَلَ عَبدٌ الجَنَّةَ بِغُصنٍ مِن شَوكٍ كانَ عَلى‏ طَريقِ المُسلِمينَ فأماطَهُ عَنهُ .3

4187.The Prophet (SAWA) said, ‘A servant [of Allah] entered Paradise because of a thorn branch that he removed from the path of fellow Muslims.’4

4188.رسولُ اللَّهِ صلى اللَّه عليه وآله : مَن بَنى‏ عَلى‏ ظَهرِ الطَّريقِ ما يَأوي عابِرَ سَبيلٍ بَعَثَهُ اللَّهُ يَومَ القِيامَةِ عَلى‏ نَجيبٍ مِن دُرٍّ ، ووَجهُه يُضي‏ءُ لأِهلِ الجَنَّةِ نوراً .5

4188.The Prophet (SAWA) said, ‘He who builds a structure on the road affording shelter to a traveller, Allah will raise him on the Day of Resurrection mounted on a fine-bred camel adorned with pearls, and his face will radiate light for all the dwellers of Paradise.’6

4189.رسولُ اللَّهِ صلى اللَّه عليه وآله : مَن رَدَّ عَن قَومٍ مِنَ المُسلِمينَ عادِيةَ ماءٍ أو نارٍ وَجَبَت لَهُ الجَنَّةُ .7

4189.The Prophet (SAWA) said, ‘He who averts an impediment of water or fire from a group of Muslims becomes deserving of obligatory entrance into Paradise.’8

4190.الإمامُ الصّادقُ عليه السلام : رَأيتُ المَعروفَ كَاسمِهِ، ولَيسَ شَي‏ءٌ أفضَلَ مِنَ المَعروفِ إلّا ثَوابَهُ .9

4190.Imam al-Sadiq (AS) said, ‘I have witnessed the act of common courtesy to be exactly as its name suggests, and nothing excels the act of common courtesy than its own reward.’10
