Back to book

8 - قال: أخبرني أبو القاسم جعفر بن محمد رحمه الله عن أبيه، عن سعد بن عبد الله، عن أحمد بن محمد بن عيسى، عن محمد بن سنان، عن إسحاق بن عمار، عن أبي عبد الله عليه السلام قال: قال رسول الله صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم: يا معشر من آمن بلسانه ولم يصل الإيمان إلى قلبه لا تتبعوا عورات المؤمنين، ولا تذموا المسلمين، فإنه من تتبع عورات المؤمنين تتبع الله عوراته، ومن تتبع الله عوراته فضحه في جوف بيته .


8. He said: Abul Qasim Ja’far ibn Muhammad - may Allah bless him with mercy, reported to me from his father, from Sa’d ibn Abdillah, from Ahmad ibn Muhammad ibn Isa, from Muhammad ibn Sinan, from Ishaq ibn Ammar, from Abu Abdillah, peace be upon him, that: The Prophet, peace be upon him and his progeny, said: "O those who have submitted with their tongues, but their faith has not reached their hearts, do not pry on the faults of the believers and do not revile the Muslims. Surely, he who goes in search for the faults of the believers, Allah will pry on his faults; and when Allah does that, He exposes him in the inner most part of his house."
