1-5 حدثنا محمد بن الحسن بن أحمد بن الوليد رضي الله عنه قال: حدثنا محمد ابن الحسن الصفار، عن أحمد بن محمد بن عيسى، عن الحسن بن علي بن فضال، عن عاصم بن حميد، عن أبي عبيدة الحذاء، عن أبي جعفر عليه السلام قال: إن الله عز وجل يقول: بجلالي وجمالي وبهائي وعلائي وارتفاعي لا يؤثر عبد هواي على هواه إلا جعلت غناه في نفسه، وهمه في آخرته، وكففت عنه ضيعته وضمنت السماوات والارض رزقه، وكنت له من وراء تجارة كل تاجر


1-5 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 Ahmad ibn Muhammad ibn Isa, on the authority of Al-Hassan ibn Ali ibn Faz’zal, on the authority of Asim ibn Hamid, on the authority of Abi Ubaydat al-Haza’a that Abu Ja’far al-Baqir (MGB) narrated that God the Exalted the Sublime says, “I swear by My Honor, Beauty, Magnificence, Loftiness that I shall make anyone needless who chooses Me over his selfish desires. I will make him attend to the affairs of his Hereafter. I will protect him from getting ruined. I will establish the heavens and the Earth as guarantees for his share of daily bread. Moreover, I will be far superior to the business of all the businessmen for him.”
