Back to book

1-93 حدثنا محمد بن الحسن رضي الله عنه قال: حدثنا عبد الله بن جعفر الحميري قال: حدثني هارون بن مسلم، عن مسعدة بن صدقة، عن جعفر بن محمد، عن أبيه عليهما السلام قال: قال رسول الله صلى الله عليه وآله: ما محق الايمان محق الشح شيء، ثم قال: إن لهذا الشح دبيباً كدبيب النمل، وشعباً كشعب الشرك


1-93 Muhammad ibn al-Hassan - may God be pleased with him - narrated that Abdullah ibn Ja’far al-Homayry quoted on the authority of Harun ibn Muslim, on the authority of Mus’adat ibn Sadaqah, on the authority of Ja’far ibn Muhammad as-Sadiq (MGB), on the authority of his father (MGB) that God’s Prophet (MGB) said, “Nothing ruins faith as much as greed does. Greed has a crawling similar to the crawling of ants, and it has branches similar to the branches of polytheism.”
