1-64 حدثنا أبي رضي الله عنه قال: حدثنا محمد بن يحيى العطار قال: حدثني سهل بن زياد الآدمي قال: حدثنا الحسن بن الحسين اللؤلؤي، عن محمد بن سنان، عن زيد أبي اسامة الشحام، عن أبي عبد الله عليه السلام قال: قال رسول الله صلى الله عليه وآله: إن عظيم البلاء يكافى به عظيم الجزاء، وإذا أحب الله عبدا ابتلاه بعظيم البلاء فمن رضي فله الرضا عند الله عز وجل، ومن سخط البلاء فله السخط


1-64 (The compiler of the book narrated) that his father - may God be pleased with him - narrated that Muhammad ibn Yahya al-Attar quoted on the authority of Sahl ibn Zyad al-Adamy, on the authority of Al-Hassan ibn al-Hussein al-Lu’lu’ee, on the authority of Muhammad ibn Sin’an, on the authority of Zayd Abi Usamah ash-Shaham, on the authority of Aba Abdullah as-Sadiq (MGB) that God’s Prophet (MGB) said, “There is a great reward for a great calamity. If he is pleased with the calamity, then God the Honorable the Exalted will be pleased with him. However, if he is displeased with the calamity, then God will be displeased with him.”
