3-199 Muhammad ibn al-Hassan - may God be pleased with him - narrated that Muhammad ibn Yahya al-Attar quoted Muhammad ibn Ahmad, on the authority of Muhammad ibn Ali al-Basry, on the authority of Fuzalat ibn Ayoob and Wahab ibn Hafs, on the authority of Shahab ibn Abdeh Rab’beh that Aba Abdullah as-Sadiq (MGB) said, “Zubayr had a quince in his hand and went to see God’s Prophet (MGB). The Prophet (MGB) said, ‘O Zubayr! What is this in your hand?’ Then he replied, ‘O Prophet of God! This is a quince.’ Then the Prophet (MGB) said, ‘O Zubayr! Eat quinces since they have three good characteristics.’ Zubayr said, ‘O Prophet of God ! What are they?’The Prophet (MGB) replied, ‘They will warm up the heart, make a miser benevolent and turn a coward into a bold person.’The compiler of the book - may God be pleased with him - says, “I heard my elder Muhammad ibn al-Hassan - may God be pleased with him - narrate that As-Sadiq (MGB) said, ‘Zubayr was one of us until his son Abdullah grew up and turned him against us.’”
