Back to book

3-18 حدثنا محمد بن الحسن بن أحمد بن الوليد رضي الله عنه قال: حدثنا محمد ابن الحسن الصفار، عن أحمد بن محمد بن عيسى، عن الحسن بن محبوب، عن عبد الله ابن سنان قال: سمعت أبا عبد الله عليه السلام قال: إني لا رحم ثلاثة، وحق لهم أن يرحموا: عزيز أصابته مذله بعد العز، وغني أصابته حاجة بعد الغني، وعالم يستخف به أهله والجهلة


3-18 Muhammad ibn al-Hassan ibn Ahmad ibn al-Walid - may God be pleased with him - narrated that Muhammad ibn al-Hassan al-Saffar quoted Ahmad ibn Muhammad ibn Isa, on the authority of Al-Hassan ibn Mahboob, on the authority of Abdullah ibn Sin’an, “I heard Aba Abdullah as-Sadiq (MGB) say, ‘Have mercy on three people as they deserve mercy: an honorable one who has been striken with misery and is no longer honored; an affluent person who has suffered and is needy; and a scholar who is belittled by his family members and the ignorant ones.”
