Published by Yasin T. al-Jibouri
This text is quite unusual. It deals with the rewards in the Hereafter received by those who lose children or loved ones and who do not complain about it but look at it as an undisputed act of God that meets His wisdom. It contains rare incidents of people who persevered as they suffered the loss of a child or more to death. You have to have a strong heart to read this book.

 In the Name of Allah, the most Gracious, the most Merciful 
INTRODUCTION
 In the Name of Allah, the most Gracious, the most Merciful 
Due to lack of want, outgiving and generosity, He has willed toshower His blessings unto the descendants of Adam withgenerosity, blessing them first with the bliss of existence andgetting them out of the sphere of void. Then He put everythingon earth at their disposal, making them the masters of this planet, faring with its soil, water and atmosphere as they wish.He has subjected to them its animals, plants, minerals and allother treasures.Then He bestowed upon them guidance by sending themmessengers and divine books which secure for them thePleasure of their Lord, their own happiness, sustenance andgoodly Return if they obey Him.After all these generous blessings and clear guidance comestesting and examining, and these cannot take place withoutaffliction of the decrease of a blessing or an affliction in self and in wealth, and it is here when a steadfast person who seeksrewards is distinguished from that who is impatient, fretful.The most Praised One has promised to give them generousrewards, to pay them their dues without count, informing themthat He, the most Exalted One, supports them if they persevere.2
 
Imam al-Baqir (ع) has said, "A believer is tested in the life of this world according to the extent of his faith" or he said"according to the extent of his belief"
1
.Imam al-Sādiq (ع) has said, "If Allah loves one of His servants,He exposes him to trials, one after the other."
2
He (ع) also said, "Great rewards accompany great trials."
3
 Thisis why among people, according to traditions, there are thosewho are most severely tested, and these are the prophets, thenthe
walis
, then the most pious, and so on.
4
Then the Prophet (ص) said, "We, prophets, are tried the most,and we are followed in this regard by the believers, the most pious then the less pious, and so on. One who tastes the sweettaste of trial under a protective covering from Allah finds ittastier than a bliss."
5
He (ص) has equaled obedience to Allah through patience tohalf one's
iman
(conviction), regarding it as one of the keys toachieving rewards and determining patience as occupying a position in
iman
equal to that of the head to the body; there isno body without a head; therefore, one without patience iswithout
iman
, and one who is patient will receive rewards equalto those due to one thousand martyrs.It is for the above reason that Imam Ali (ع) has said, "If you are patient, destiny will be affected in your regard and you willreceive your rewards, but if you fret, destiny will be affected inyour regard as you bear the burden of your sins."
