29. Gold and Silver Are Two Perverting Metals

Back to book

2-38 حدثنا أبي رضي الله عنه قال: حدثنا محمد بن يحيى العطار، عن محمد بن أحمد بن يحيى بن عمران يرفع الحديث قال: الذهب والفضة حجران ممسوخان فمن أحبهما كان معهماقال مصنف هذا الكتاب أدام الله عزه -: يعني بذلك من أحبهما حبا يمنع حق الله منهما


2-38 (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 Muhammad ibn Ahmad ibn Yahya ibn Imran who linked up this tradition, “Gold and silver are two perverting metals. Whoever loves them is with them.”The compiler of the book - may God increase his honor - interprets this to mean that whoever loves them so much that he doesn’t pay the Divinely Ordained dues on them is with them.
