عَنْ أَبِي بَصِيرٍ قَالَ قَالَ أَبُو عَبْدِ اللهِ عَلَيْهِ السَّلَامُ مُدْمِنُ الْخَمْرِ كَعَابِدِ الْوَثَنِ وَ النَّاصِبُ لآِلِ مُحَمَّدٍ شَرٌّ مِنْهُ قُلْتُ جُعِلْتُ فِدَاكَ وَ مَنْ شَرٌّ مِنْ عَابِدِ الْوَثَنِ فَقَالَ إِنَّ شَارِبَ الْخَمْرِ تُدْرِكُهُ الشَّفَاعَةُ يَوْماً مَّا وَ إِنَّ النَّاصِبَ لَوْ شَفَعَ [فِيهِ‏] أَهْلُ السَّمَاوَاتِ وَ الْأَرْضِ لَمْ يُشَفَّعُوا

Abu Baseer reports that Imam Abu Abdillah (al-Sadeq – peace be on him) said, “An alcoholic is like an idol-worshipper. But the enemy of the progeny of Muhammad (peace be on them) is worse than him.”

I asked, “May I be held your ransom! And who is worse than an idol-worshipper?”

He (peace be on him) retorted,

“Surely, an alcoholic may receive intercession someday but if all the inhabitants of the skies and the earth will intercede on behalf of a Naasebi, their intercession will not be accepted.”

Notes:

1)    The Messenger of Allah (peace be on him and his progeny) said, “I have stored my intercession for the perpetrators of the major crimes from my nation.” (Majmoo’ah of al-Warraam and many other references). But the one who bears enmity and hatred against the Ahlul Bait (peace be on them) will never get the intercession of the Holy Prophet (peace be on him and his progeny) because he himself has said that anyone who bears enmity against them will never get my intercession. 2)            The Naasebi will definitely taste all forms of divine chastisement i.e. in the world, at the time of death, in the grave, in Barzakh, on the Day of Judgment and the Hereafter.
