3-81 حدثنا أحمد بن محمد بن يحيى العطار رضي الله عنه قال: حدثنا سعد بن عبد الله، عن أحمد بن أبي عبد الله البرقي. عن بكر بن صالح. عن الحسن بن علي بن فضال، عن عبد الله بن إبراهيم، عن الحسين بن زيد، عن أبيه، عن جعفر بن محمد، عن أبيه عليهما السلام قال: قال رسول الله صلى الله عليه وآله:إن أسرع الخير ثوابا البر وإن أسرع الشر عقابا البغي،وكفى بالمرء عيبا أن ينظر من الناس إلى ما يعمى عنه من نفسه، ويعير الناس بما لا يستطيع تركه، ويؤذي جليسه بما لا يعنيه


3-81 Ahmad ibn Muhammad ibn Yahya al-Attar - may God be pleased with him - narrated that Sa’ed ibn Abdullah quoted on the authority of Ahmad ibn Aba Abdullah al-Barqy, on the authority of Bakr ibn Salih, on the authority of Al-Hassan ibn Ali ibn Faz’zal, on the authority of Abdullah ibn Ibrahim, on the authority of Al-Hussein ibn Zayd, on the authority of his father, on the authority of Ja’far ibn Muhammad as-Sadiq (MGB), on the authority of his father (MGB) that God’s Prophet (MGB) said, “Indeed the reward of doing good deeds will arrive much sooner than any good deeds, the punishment for doing evil deeds will reach one much faster than any evil deeds. Having three characteristics is enough for one to be bad. These characteristics are: attending to other people’s faults while ignoring your own; admonishing others against evil deeds without being able to abandon them yourself and hurting your companion for nothing.”
