Back to book

1-58 حدثنا أبي رضي الله عنه قال: حدثنا سعد بن عبد الله، عن يعقوب بن يزيد، عن ابن محبوب، عن علي بن الحسين بن رباط، رفعه قال: شكى رجل إلى أمير المؤمنين عليه السلام الحاجة فقال له: اعلم أن كل شيء تصيبه من الدنيا فوق قوتك فإنما أنت فيه خازن لغيرك


1-58 (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 Yaqoob ibn Yazid, on the authority of Ibn Mahboob, on the authority of Ali ibn al-Hussein ibn Ribat who linked it up to a man who complained to the Commander of the Faithful Imam Ali (MGB) about his needs. The Commander of the Faithful (MGB) said, “Know that you are only a treasurer for other people for what you earn from this world that is more than your meals.”
