1. He said: Abu Hafs Umar ibn Muhammad reported to me from ‘Ali ibn Mahrwayh al-Qazwini, who reported from Dawood ibn Sulaiman al-Ghazi, who reported from al-Ridha, ‘Ali ibn Musa, from his father, Musa ibn Ja’far, from his father Ja’far ibn Muhammad, from his father Muhammad ibn ‘Ali, from his father ‘Ali ibn Husayn, from his father al-Husayn ibn ‘Ali, from his father ‘Ali ibn Abi Talib, peace be upon them all, that: The Prophet, peace be upon him and his progeny, said: An angel appeared to me and said: "O Muhammad! Your Sustainer sends you peaceful greetings and says: if you so desire, We can turn the entire plain of Makkah into gold." He said (i.e. the Prophet): I raised my head towards the heavens and said: "O, my Sustainer! (let it be that) one day, I eat to my fill, so that I praise You with gratitude and one day, I remain hungry so that I (experience the pleasure to) seek from You."
