Back to book

2-46 حدثنا أبي رضي الله عنه قال: حدثنا سعد بن عبد الله، عن يعقوب بن يزيد، عن مروك بن عبيد، عمن ذكره، عن أبي عبد الله عليه السلام: أنه قال: في الجيد دعوتان، وفي الردئ دعوتان، يقال لصاحب الجيد: بارك الله فيك وفيمن باعك، ويقال لصاحب الردئ: لا بارك الله فيك ولا فيمن باعك


2-46 (The compiler of the book narrated) that his father - may God be pleased with him - narrated that Sa’ed ibn Abdullah quoted Yaqoob ibn Yazid, on the authority of Marvak ibn Ubayd who linked it up through other narrators to Aba Abdullah as-Sadiq (MGB), “There are two prayers for high quality goods, and there are two curses for bad goods. People pray for high quality goods and say, ‘May God bless you and the man who sold you to me.’ People curse bad goods and say, ‘May God not bless you and the man who sold you to me.’”
