Back to book

3-89 حدثنا أبي رضي الله عنه قال: حدثني عبد الله بن جعفر، عن هارون بن مسلم، عن مسعدة بن زياد، عن جعفر بن محمد، عن أبيه عليهما السلام قال: قال رسول الله صلى الله عليه وآله: لولا ثلاث في ابن ادم ما طأطأ رأسه شيء: المرض والفقر والموت، كلهم فيه وإنه معهن لو ثاب


3-89 (The compiler of the book narrated) that his father - may God be pleased with him - narrated that Abdullah ibn Ja’far quoted on the authority of Harun ibn Muslim, on the authority of Mus’adat ibn Zyad, on the authority of Ja’far ibn Muhammad As-Sadia (MGB), on the authority of his father Al-Baqir (MGB) that God’s Prophet (MGB) said, “Were it not for three reasons, man would never bow down. They are illness, poverty and death. He is subject to all of them and they are with him. Yet, he will not stop boasting.”
