Back to book

3-208 حدثنا أبي رضي الله عنه قال: حدثنا سعد بن عبد الله، عن أحمد بن محمد بن عيسى، عن أحمد بن محمد بن أبي نصر البزنطي، عن عبد الله بن سنان، عن الوليد ابن صبيح، عن أبي عبد الله عليه السلام قال: كنت عنده وعنده جفنة من رطب فجاء سائل فأعطاه ثم جاء سائل آخر فأعطاه، ثم جاء آخر فأعطاه، ثم جاء آخر فقال: وسع الله عليك، ثم قال: إن رجلا لو كان له مال يبلغ ثلاثين أو أربعين ألفا، ثم شاء أن لا يبقى منه شيء إلا قسمه في حق فعل فيبقى لا مال له، فيكون من الثلاثة الذين يرد دعاؤهم عليهم، قال: قلت: جعلت فداك من هم؟ قال: رجل رزقه الله عز وجل مالا فأنفقه في وجوهه ثم قال: يا رب ارزقني [فيقول الله عز وجل أولم أرزقك] ورجل دعا على امرأته وهو ظالم لها فيقال له: ألم أجعل أمرها بيدك، ورجل جلس في بيته وترك الطلب، ثم يقول: يا رب ارزقني فيقول [الله] عز وجل ألم أجعل لك السبيل إلى الطلب للرزق


3-208 (The compiler of the book narrated) that his father - may God be pleased with him - narrated that Sa’ed ibn Abdullah quoted on the authority of Ahmad ibn Muhammad ibn Isa, on the authority of Ahmad ibn Muhammad ibn Abi Nasr al-Bazanty, on the authority of Abdullah ibn Sin’an, on the authority of Al-Walid ibn Sabih who said, “I was with Aba Abdullah as-Sadiq (MGB). A tray of dates was in front of him (MGB). A beggar came and the Imam (MGB) gave him some dates. Another one came and the Imam (MGB) gave him some dates. A third beggar came, but the Imam (MGB) said, ‘May God grant you an increase of sustenance!’ Then the Imam (MGB) told me, ‘If a man has more than thirty or forty-thousand (Dinars) and wishes to give it all away in charity, he can do so, but he will become poor and will be amongst those whose prayers are returned to themselves.’ I asked the Imam (MGB), ‘May I be your ransom! Who are these people?’ The Imam (MGB) replied, ‘They include men to whom God has granted what they prayed for, but spend it all for God’s sake and again say, ‘O God! Please give me more sustenance!’ They also include men who curse their wives while having treated their wives oppressively. They are told, ‘Have We not entrusted her affairs with you?’ They also include men who sit in their house, pray to seek their sustenance and say, ‘O God! Please deliver my sustenance to me! The Honorable the Exalted God tells them, ‘Have I not established a way for you to obtain your daily sustenance?’”
