24-8 حدثنا محمد بن علي بن الشاه قال: حدثنا أبوحامد قال: حدثنا أبويزيد قال: حدثنا محمد بن أحمد بن صالح التميمي، عن أبيه قال: حدثنا أنس بن محمد أبومالك، عن أبيه، عن جعفر بن محمد، عن أبيه، عن جده، عن علي بن أبي طالب عليهم السلام، عن النبي صلى الله عليه وآله أنه قال في وصيته له: يا علي الربا سبعون جزءا فأيسرها مثل أن ينكح الرجل امه في بيت الله الحرام، يا علي درهم ربا أعظم من سبعين زنية كلها بذات محرم في بيت الله الحرام


24-8 Muhammad ibn Ali ibn ash-Shah narrated that Abu Hamid quoted Abu Yazid, on the authority of Muhammad ibn Ahmad ibn Salih al-Tamimy, on the authority of his father, on the authority of Anas ibn Muhammad Abu Malik, on the authority of his father, on the authority of Ja’far ibn Muhammad as-Sadiq (MGB), on the authority of his father (MGB), on the authority of his grandfather (MGB), on the authority of Ali ibn Abi Talib (MGB) that in his will to Ali (MGB) God’s Prophet (MGB) told him, “O Ali! Usury is of seventy parts. The punishment of the easiest of which is the same as punishment for committing incest with one’s own mother inside the Holy House of God. O Ali! A single Dirham of usury is more horrible in the sight of God than seventy times of committing incest inside the Holy House of God.”
