3-6 حدثنا أبي رضي الله عنه قال: حدثنا محمد بن يحيى العطار، عن الحسين بن إسحاق التاجر، عن علي بن مهزيار، عن علي بن حديد رفعه إلى أبي عبد الله عليه السلام قال: إذا اقشعر جلدك ودمعت عيناك ووجل قلبك فدونك دونك فقد قصد قصدك


3-6 (The compiler of the book narrated) that his father - may God be pleased with him - narrated that Muhammad ibn Yahya al-Attar quoted Al-Hussein ibn Ishaq al-Tajir, on the authority of Ali ibn Mahzyar, on the authority of Ali ibn Hadid who linked it up to Aba Abdullah as-Sadiq (MGB), “If your body shakes, your tears flow and you fear (God) wholeheartedly, then you can be hopeful of God’s forgiveness, since you have achieved your goal.”
