2 - قال: أخبرني أبو الحسن أحمد بن محمد بن الحسن قال: حدثني أبي، عن محمد بن الحسن الصفار، عن أحمد بن محمد بن عيسى، عن الحسن بن محبوب، عن مالك بن عطية، عن داود بن فرقد، عن أبي عبد الله الصادق جعفر بن محمد عليهما السلام قال: إن فيما ناجى الله به موسى بن عمران عليه السلام أن يا موسى ما خلقت خلقا هو أحب إلي. من عبدي المؤمن، وإني إنما أبتليه لما هو خير له [وأزوي عنه ما يشتهيه لما هو خير له، وأعطيه لما هو خير له] وأنا أعلم بما يصلح عبدي، فليصبر على بلائي، وليشكر نعمائي، وليرض بقضائي، أكتبه في الصديقين عندي إذا عمل بما يرضيني، وأطاع أمري.


2. He said: Abul Hasan Ahmad ibn Muhammad ibn al-Hasan reported to me from his father, who reported from Muhammad ibn al-Hasan al-Saffar, from Ahmad ibn Muhammad ibn Isa, from al-Hasan ibn Mahboob, from Malik ibn Atiyyah, from Dawood ibn Farqad, who reported that: Abu Abdillah al-Sadiq Ja’far ibn Muhammad, peace be upon him, said: Among the words spoken to Allah to Musa son of Imran, peace be upon him, He revealed: "O, Musa! I have not created anything more beloved and preferred to Me than My faithful, believing servants. And when I try him, it is for his own good. I take away from him what he desires most, for his own good; and I grant him for his own benefit. And I know best what is beneficial for My servant. So, it is for him to be patient, when I try him, to be grateful when I bless him with My bounties, and he should remain pleased with My judgement. (Then) I write his name among My Truthfuls when he acts according to My pleasure and obeys My orders."
