We found nothing to be better than fearing God in public and private; frugality both at times of poverty and being wealthy; telling the truth whether it be pleasing to us or to our loss; and supplicating to the Honorable the Exalted God in all circumstances.”

4-92 Ja’far ibn Ali ibn al-Hassan ibn Ali ibn Abdullah ibn al-Muqayrih al-Kufy - may God be pleased with him - narrated that his grandfather Al-Hassan ibn Ali quoted his grandfather, on the authority of his grandfather Abdullah ibn al-Muqayrih, on the authority of Isma’il ibn Abi Zyad (al-Sakoony ), on the authority of Ja’far ibn Muhammad as-Sadiq (MGB), on the authority of his father (MGB), on the authority of his forefathers (MGB), on the authority of Ali (MGB) that God’s Prophet (MGB) said, “Women are in four types: Ones with a good sustenance; ones with good springs; ones who are suffocating anguishes and burdening lice-infested parasites.”The compiler of the book said, “What is meant by ‘ones with a good sustenance’ is women who are good and have a good deal of God-given daily sustenance. What is meant by ‘good springs’ is women who are pregnant, even though they have some children. What is meant by ‘suffocating anguishes’ is women who are bad-tempered with their husbands. What is meant by ‘burdening lice-infested parasites’ is bad women with whom their husbands are stuck. Their husbands are tied up and can neither help themselves not get away from them.”
