Back to book

1-81 حدثنا أبي رضي الله عنه قال: حدثنا سعد بن عبد الله قال: حدثني يعقوب بن يزيد، عن محمد بن أبي عمير، عن خلاد، عن أبي حمزة الثمالي، عن علي بن الحسين عليهما السلام قال: ما أحب أن لي بذل نفسي حمر النعموما تجرعت جرعة أحب إلي من جرعة غيظ لا اكافي بها صاحبها


1-81 (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 Muhammad ibn Abi Umayr, on the authority of Khalid, on the authority of Abi Hamzih al-Sumaly that Ali ibn al-Hussein as-Sajjad (MGB) said, “I do not like to possess red-haired camels instead of my being oppressed; and I have never quenched my thirst any better than quenching my wrath over the one I got angry with.”
