162. A Man’s Prosperity Depends on Three Things

Back to book

3-207 حدثنا أبي رضي الله عنه قال: حدثنا علي بن الحسين السعد آبادي، عن أحمد بن محمد بن خالد البرقي، عن عثمان بن عيسى، عن عبد الله بن مسكان يرفعه إلى علي بن الحسين عليهما السلام أنه قال: من سعادة المرء أن يكون متجره في بلاده، ويكون خلطاؤه صالحين، ويكون له ولد يستعين بهم

3-207 (The compiler of the book narrated) that his father - may God be pleased with him - narrated that Ali ibn al-Hussein al-Sa’ed Abady quoted Ahmad ibn Muhammad ibn Khalid al-Barqy, on the authority of Uthman ibn Isa, on the authority of Abdullah ibn Miskan who linked it up through a chain of narrators to Ali ibn al-Hussein as-Sajjad (MGB) saying, “A man is prosperous if his business is in his own town; his friends are good; and he has children who assist him.”
