9 - قال: أخبرني أبو الحسن أحمد بن محمد بن الحسن بن الوليد رحمه الله قال: حدثني أبي قال: حدثنا محمد بن الحسن الصفار، عن أحمد بن محمد بن عيسى عن محمد بن عبد الجبار، عن الحسن بن محبوب، عن أبي أيوب الخزاز، عن أبي حمزة الثمالي، عن أبي جعفر محمد بن علي عليهما السلام قال: كان أبي علي بن الحسين عليهما السلام يقول: أربع من كن فيه كمل إيمانه، ومحصت عنه ذنوبه، ولقي ربه وهو عنه راض: من وفى لله بما جعل على نفسه للناس، وصدق لسانه مع الناس، واستحيى من كل قبيح عند الله وعند الناس، وحسن خلقه مع أهله .

9. He said: Abul Hasan Ahmad ibn Muhammad ibn al-Hasan ibn al-Waleed, may Allah bless him with mercy, reported to me from his father, who reported from Muhammad ibn al-Hasan al-Saffar, from Ahmad ibn Muhammad ibn Isa, from Muhammad ibn Abdul Jabbar, from al-Hasan ibn Mahboob, from Abu Ayyub al-Khazzaz, from Abu Hamza al-Thumali, who reported from Abu Ja’far Muhammad ibn ‘Ali, peace be upon him, who said: My father ‘Ali ibn al-Husayn, peace be upon him, used to say that whoever has four characteristics in him, his faith will be deemed complete, and he will be purified of his sins, and he will meet his Lord having earned His pleasure: "He who fulfils his duty towards people for the sake of Allah, and he who is always truthful with people, and he who feels ashamed of committing any ugly deed before people and before Allah, and he who puts on the best behaviour with his family."
