2-60 حدثنا أبي رضي الله عنه قال: حدثنا سعد بن عبد الله، عن أحمد بن محمد ابن عيسى، عن الحسين بن سعيد، عن محمد بن أبي عمير، عن منصور بن يونس، عن أبي حمزة الثمالي قال: سمعت علي بن الحسين زين العابدين عليهما السلام يقول: ما من خطوة أحب إلى الله عز وجل من خطوتين: خطوة يسد بها المؤمن صفا في سبيل الله، وخطوة إلى ذي رحم قاطع، وما من جرعة أحب إلى الله عز وجل من جرعتين: جرعة غيظ ردها مؤمن بحلم، وجرعة مصيبة ردها مؤمن بصبر، وما من قطرة أحب إلى الله عز وجل من قطرتين: قطرة دم في سبيل الله وقطرة دمعة في سواد الليل لا يريد بها عبد إلا الله عز وجل


2-60 (The compiler of the book narrated) that his father - may God be pleased with him - narrated that Sa’ed ibn Abdullah quoted Ahmad ibn Muhammad ibn Isa, on the authority of Al-Hussein ibn Sa’id, on the authority of Muhammad ibn Abi Umayr, on the authority of Mansoor ibn Yunus, on the authority of Abi Hamzih al-Somali, that he had heard the Ornament of the Worshippers - Ali ibn al-Hussein (MGB) say, “No two steps are loved by the Honorable the Exalted God more than the following two steps: The steps taken forward by a believer with which he reinforces the troop lines in a holy war, and the steps taken to reinforce the ties of kinship towards the relations of kin who have broken the ties of kinship. No two sips are loved by the Honorable the Exalted God more than the following two sips: The sips of a believer’s wrath which he quenches and the sip of a believer’s suffering which he takes in with his patience and forbearance. No two drops of tears are loved by the Honorable the Exalted God more than the following two: The drop of blood shed in the way of God, and the drop of tears shed in the middle of the night by one who only sheds it for the Honorable the Exalted God.”
