2-22 حدثنا محمد بن علي ماجيلويه رضي الله عنه قال: حدثني عمي محمد ابن أبي القاسم، عن أحمد بن أبي عبد الله البرقي، عن أبيه محمد بن خالد، عن محمد ابن أبي عمير رفعه إبي أبي عبد الله عليه السلام قال: الناس اثنان عالم ومتعلم، وسائر الناس همج والهمج في النار


2-22 Muhammad ibn Ali Majiluyih - may God be pleased with him - narrated that his uncle Muhammad ibn Abil Qasim quoted on the authority of Ahmad ibn Aba Abdullah al-Barqy, on the authority of his father Muhammad ibn Khalid, on the authority of Muhammad ibn Abi Umayr who linked it up to Aba Abdullah as-Sadiq (MGB), “The people are in two groups: knowledgeable ones and those acquiring knowledge. The rest of the people are like flies subject to the wind and such people will be thrown into the Fire.”
