3-249 حدثنا محمد بن علي بن الشاه قال: حدثنا أبوحامد قال: حدثنا أبويزيد أحمد بن خالد الخالدي قال: حدثنا محمد بن أحمد بن صالح التميمي، عن أبيه قال: حدثنا محمد بن حاتم القطان، عن حماد بن عمرو، عن جعفر بن محمد، عن أبيه، عن جده، عن علي بن أبي طالب عليهم السلام قال: قال رسول الله صلى الله عليه وآله لابي ذر رحمة الله عليه: يا أباذر إياك والسؤال فانه ذل حاضر، وفقر تتعجله، وفيه حساب طويل يوم القيامة يا أباذر تعيش وحدك، وتموت وحدك، وتدخل الجنة وحدك، يسعد بك قوم من أهل العراق يتولون غسلك وتجهيزك ودفنك، يا أباذر لا تسأل بكفك وإن أتاك شيء فاقبله، ثم قال عليه السلام لاصحابه: ألا اخبركم بشراركم؟ قالوا: بلى يا رسول الله، قال: المشاؤون بالنميمة، المفرقون بين الاحبة، الباغون للبرآء العيب


3-249 Muhammad ibn Ali ibn ash-Shah narrated that Abu Hamid quoted Abu Yazid Ahmad ibn Khalid al-Khalidy, on the authority of Muhammad ibn Ahmad ibn Salih al-Tamimy, on the authority of his father, on the authority of Muhammad ibn Hatam al-Qat’tan, on the authority of Hammad ibn Amr, on the authority of Ja’far ibn Muhammad (MGB), on the authority of his father (MGB), on the authority of his grandfather (MGB), on the authority of Ali ibn Abi Talib (MGB) that God’s Prophet (MGB) told Abuzar - may God have Mercy upon him, “O Abuzar! I admonish you against begging from the people since that implies debasement at the present time, and it will be pursued by poverty. It will also have a lot of Reckoning on the Resurrection Day. O Abuzar! You live alone and you will die alone. You will enter Paradise alone, too. Some of the people of Iraq will be blessed enough to make the ablutions for the deceased for your corpse, shroud you and bury you. O Abuzar! Do not beg, but take what you are given.” Then the Prophet (MGB) asked his companions, “Do you want me to tell you about the most wicked one of you?” They said, “O Prophet of God! Yes.” The Prophet (MGB) said, “They are those who gossip about other people and cause discord among friends. They are those who wrongfully find fault with the good people.”
