Al-Tawḥīd > The Will and the Intent
Hadith #9

9 - أبي رحمه الله، قال: حدثنا علي بن إبراهيم بن هاشم، عن أبيه، عن علي بن معبد، عن درست بن أبي منصور، عن فضيل بن يسار، قال: سمعت أبا - عبد الله عليه السلام يقول: شاء وأراد ولم يحب ولم يرض، شاء أن لا يكون شئ إلا بعلمه وأراد مثل ذلك، ولم يحب أن يقال له: (ثالث ثلاثة) ولم يرض لعباده الكفر .

9. My father (RA) said: `Ali ibn Ibrahim ibn Hashim said, on the authority of his father, on the authority of `Ali ibn Ma’bad, on the authority of Durust ibn Abu Mansur, on the authority of Fudayl ibn Yasar that Abu `Abd Allah al-Sadiq (AS) said: He wills, He intends, He dislikes, and He is displeased. He wills that nothing should exist without His Knowledge, and He intends similar to that. He dislikes it to be said of Him that `He is the third of the three,’ and He is displeased with His Servant’s’ disbelief.
