1 - قال: أخبرني أبو غالب أحمد بن محمد الزراري رحمه الله قال: حدثني خالي أبو العباس محمد بن جعفر الرزاز القرشي قال: حدثنا محمد بن الحسين بن أبي الخطاب، عن الحسن بن محبوب، عن جميل بن صالح، عن بريد بن معاوية العجلي، عن أبي جعفر محمد بن علي الباقر، عن آبائه عليهم السلام قال: قال رسول الله صلى الله عليه وآله وسل: يقول الله تعالى: المعروف هدية مني إلى عبدي المؤمن، فإن قبلها مني فبرحمتي ومني، وإن ردها علي فبذنبه حرمها، ومنه لا مني، وأيما عبد خلقته فهديته إلى الإيمان، وحسنت خلقه، ولم أبتله بالبخل فإني أريد به خيرا.


1. He said: Abu Ghalib Ahmad ibn Muhammad al-Zurari, may Allah bless him with mercy, reported to me from his maternal uncle Abu al-Abbas Muhammad ibn Ja’far al-Razzaz al-Qurashi, who reported from Muhammad ibn al-Husayn ibn Abu al-Khattab, from al-Hasan ibn Mahboob, from Jamil ibn Swaleh, from Barid ibn Mu’awiyah al-Ajali, from Abu Ja’far Muhammad ibn ‘Ali al-Baqir, peace be upon him, from his forefathers, that: The Prophet, peace be upon him and his progeny, said Allah, Most High, says: "Grace and Blessing are My gift to My believing servant. If he accepts them, that is My mercy and from Me. And if he rejects them, that is because of his sins which deprive him; and it is his doing and not Mine. And I have guided every creature to Faith, and fashioned him in a shapely manner. And I never made him a victim of miserliness, for I always wished him good."
