Back to book

1-36 حدثنا أبي رضي الله عنه قال: حدثنا سعد بن عبد الله، عن محمد بن الحسين بن أبي الخطاب، عن جعفر بن بشير البجلي، عن داود الرقي، عن أبي عبد الله عليه السلام قال: إن القصد أمر يحبه الله عز وجل، وإن السرف [أمر] يبغضه [الله عز وجل] حتى طرحك النواة فإنها تصلح لشئ وحتى صبك فضل شرابك


1-36 (The compiler of the book narrated) that his father - may God be pleased with him - narrated that Sa’ed ibn Abdullah quoted on the authority of Muhammad ibn al-Hussein ibn Abil-Khat’tab, on the authority of Ja’far ibn Bashir al-Bajaly, on the authority of Davood al-Raqqy that Aba Abdullah as-Sadiq (MGB) said, “Moderation is what God the Honorable, the Exalted loves. Wastefulness is despised by Him even if it is throwing away a date seed that can be used, or throwing away the leftover liquid from your drink.”
