3-181 Al-Hussein ibn Ahmad ibn Idris - may God be pleased with him - narrated that his father quoted Muhammad ibn Ahmad ibn Yahya ibn Imranal-Ash’ari, on the authority of Aba Abdullah al-Razi, on the authority of Aba Abdullah al-Razi, on the authority of Sajada (al-Abed) - al-Hassan ibn Ali ibn Abi Uthman, on the authority of Vasel, on the authority of Abdullah ibn Sin’an, on the authority of Aba Abdullah as-Sadiq (MGB) that God’s Prophet (MGB) said, “A guest deserves to be served for one, two or three days at the most. Thereafter, servicing a guest is a form of charity by the host.” He (MGB) then added, “Do not stay in your brother’s home so long as to make him commit a sin.” Then he (MGB) was asked, “How could that be?” The Prophet (MGB) said, “If you stay there so long that he no longer has anything left to spend for you.”
