He said: Abul Hasan ‘Ali ibn Ahmad ibn Ibrahim al-Katib reported to me from Abu ‘Ali Muhammad ibn Hammam al-Iskafi, who reported from Abdullah ibn Ja’far al-Himyari, who reported from Ahmad ibn Abu Abdillah al-Barqi, who reported from al-Qasim ibn Yahya, from his grandfather al-Hasan ibn Rashid, from Muhammad ibn Muslim who reported that: Abu Abdillah peace be upon him, said: "Be it known to you that Allah hates a person who is unsteady and fickle. Never slip away from the truth and its partisans. Whoever, rules and oppresses with the aid of untruth, and his people shall perish, and shall lose (all that he may have gained from) this world, and leave the world low and humbled."
