1-31 Muhammad ibn al-Hassan ibn Ahmad ibn al-Walid - may God be pleased with him - narrated that Muhammad ibn al-Hassan al-Saffar quoted on the authority of Al-Abbas ibn Ma’ruf, on the authority of Abi Himmam - Isma’il ibn Himmam, on the authority of Muhammad ibn Sa’idibn Qazvan, on the authority of Isma’il ibn Muslim al-Sakoony, on the authority of Ja’far ibn Muhammad, on the authority of his father (MGB) that the Prophet (MGB) said, “There is one good characteristic that is better than any other good characteristic. However, there are no characteristics better than getting killed in the way of the Honorable the Exalted God. There is some ingratitude that is worse than any other kinds of ingratitude. However, there is no ingratitude worse than killing one’s parents.”
