1720. The Vow

(إِذْ قَالَتِ امْرَأَةُ عِمْرَانَ رَبِّ إِنِّي نَذَرْتُ لَكَ مَا فِي بَطْنِي مُحَرَّرَاً فَتَقَبَّلْ مِنِّي إِنَّكَ أَنْتَ السَّمِيعُ الْعَلِيمُ) .1

"When the wife of Imran said, 'My Lord, I dedicate to You what is in my belly, in consecration. Accept it from me; indeed You are the All-hearing, the All-knowing." 2

(وَمَا أَنْفَقْتُمْ مِنْ نَفَقَةٍ أَوْ نَذَرْتُمْ مِنْ نَذْرٍ فَإِنَّ اللَّهَ يَعْلَمُهُ وَمَا لِلظَّالِمِينَ مِنْ أَنْصَارٍ) .3

"Whatever charity you may give, or vows that you may vow, Allah indeed knows it, and the wrongdoers have no helpers." 4

(يُوفُونَ بِالنَّذْرِ وَيَخَافُونَ يَوْمَاً كَانَ شَرُّهُ مُسْتَطِيرَاً) .5

"They fulfil their vows and fear a day whose ill will be widespread." 6

6082.الإمامُ الباقرُ عليه السلام - في قولهِ تعالى‏ : (يُوفُونَ بالنَّذْرِ) - : مَرِضَ الحَسنُ والحُسينُ وهُما صَبيّانِ صَغيرانِ ، فعادَهُما رَسولُ اللَّهِ صلى اللَّه عليه وآله ومَعهُ رجُلانِ ، فقالَ أحَدُهُما : يا أبا الحَسَنِ، لو نَذَرتَ في ابنَيكَ نَذراً إن عافاهُما اللَّهُ ، فقالَ : أصومُ ثَلاثَةَ أيّامٍ شُكراً للَّهِ عَزَّوجلَّ ، وكذلكَ قالَت فاطمَةُ ، وكذلكَ قالَت جارِيَتُهُم فِضَّةُ ، فألبَسَهُما اللَّه عافِيَةً فأصبَحوا صِياماً .7

6082. Imam al-Baqir (AS), with regard to Allah's verse in the Qur'an: "They fulfil their vows", said, 'al-Hasan and al-Husayn became sick when they were young children, so the Prophet (SAWA) visited them and there were two men with him. One of the two men said [to Imam Ali], 'O Abu al-Hasan, why don't you make a vow for your two children for Allah to cure them.' He said, 'I will fast for three days in thanks to Allah Almighty. Fatima also said the same, and so did their servant Fidda. Allah Almighty covered them with good health, and so they fasted the next day.' 8
