2 - قال: أخبرني أبو نصر محمد بن الحسين المقري قال: حدثنا أبو عبد الله الحسين بن محمد الأسدي قال: حدثنا أبو عبد الله جعفر بن عبد الله العلوي قال: حدثنا يحيى بن هاشم الغساني قال: حدثني أبو المقوم يحيى بن ثعلبة الأنصاري ، عن عاصم بن أبي النجود ، عن زر بن حبيش، عن عبد الله بن مسعود قال: كنا مع النبي صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم في بعض أسفاره إذ هتف بنا أعرابي بصوت جهوري فقال: يا محمد! فقال له النبي صلى الله عليه وآله: ما تشاء؟ فقال: المرء يحب القوم ولا يعمل بأعمالهم ؟ فقال النبي صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم: المرء مع من أحب. فقال: يا محمد اعرض علي الإسلام، فقال: اشهد أن لا إله إلا الله، وأني رسول الله، وتقيم الصلاة، وتؤتي الزكاة، وتصوم شهر رمضان، وتحج البيت، فقال: يا محمد تأخذ على هذا أجرا؟ فقال: لا إلا المودة في القربى، قال: قرباي أو قرباك؟ قال: بل قرباي، قال: هلم يدك حتى أبايعك، لا خير فيمن لا يودك، ولا يود قرباك.

2. He said: Abu Nasr Muhammad ibn al-Husayn al-Muqri, reported to me from Abu Abdillah al-Husayn ibn Muhammad al-Asadi, who reported from Abu Abdillah Ja’far ibn Abdillah al-Alawi, who reported from Yahya ibn Hashim al-Ghassani, who reported from Yahya ibn Tha’labah al-Ansari, from Asim ibn Abu al-Najood, from Zarr ibn Hubaish from Abdullah ibn Masood, who said: Once, when we were with the Prophet, peace be upon him and his progeny, on one of his journeys, a Bedouin shouted at us: "O Muhammad!" The Prophet said: "What do you want?" He said: "What about a person who has an affinity and love for a community, but does not follow their acts?" The Prophet, peace be upon him and his progeny, said: "Man is with him who he loves." Then he said: "O Muhammad, present to me al-Islam." He (i.e. the Prophet) said: "Testify that there is no god but Allah, and that I am His messenger. And establish the daily prayers, give alms (zakat), fast during the month of Ramadhan and come to the House of Allah for Hajj." He said: "O, Muhammad, do you take any reward for this?" He (i.e. the Prophet) said: "None, except the love for the nearest kins." He asked: "Do you mean my nearest kins or yours?" He (i.e. the Prophet) said: "My kins." He said: "Extend your hand so that I may give you my allegiance. There is no good in a person who does not love you and your kinsfolk."
