1-62 حدثنا محمد بن موسى بن المتوكل رضي الله عنه قال: حدثنا عبد الله بن جعفر الحميري قال: حدثنا أحمد بن محمد بن عيسى، عن الحسن بن محبوب، عن مالك بن عطية، عن أبي حمزة الثمالي، عن علي بن الحسين عليهما السلام قال: لا حسب لقرشي ولا لعربي إلا بتواضع، ولا كرم إلا بتقوى، ولا عمل إلا بنية، ألا وإن أبغض الناس إلى الله عز وجل من يقدي بسنة إمام ولا يقتدي بأعماله


1-62 Muhammad ibn Musa ibn al-Mutevakil - may God be pleased with him - narrated that Abdullah ibn Ja’far al-Homayry, on the authority of Ahmad ibn Muhammad ibn Isa, on the authority of Al-Hassan ibn Mahboob, on the authority of Malik ibn Atiye, on the authority of Abi Hamzih al-Sumaly that Ali ibn al-Hussein as-Sajjad (MGB) said, “There is no honor for the Quraysh tribe or any other Arabs except by means of humbleness, and there is no nobility except by means of piety. A deed is not a deed unless there is an intention behind it. There is no worshipping except by means of understanding. Beware that the most despised person by God the Honorable the Exalted is the one who considers himself to be the follower of a leader but doesn’t act according to the deeds of his leader.”
