11 - قال أخبرني أبو غالب أحمد بن محمد قال: حدثني جدي محمد بن سليمان ، قال: أبو جعفر محمد بن الحسين قال: حدثنا محمد بن سنان، عن حمزة بن محمد الطيار قال: سمعت أبا عبد الله عليه السلام يقول: إنما قدر الله عون العباد على قدر نياتهم، فمن صحت نيته تم عون الله له، ومن قصرت نيته قصر عنه العون بقدر الذي قصر.


11. He said: Abu Ghalib Ahmad ibn Muhammad reported to me from his grandfather Muhammad ibn Sulaiman, who reported from Abu Ja’far Muhammad ibn al-Husayn, who reported from Muhammad ibn Sinan, from Hamza ibn Muhammad al-Tayyar, who said: I heard Abu Abdillah, peace be upon him, say: "Allah helps His servants according to the measure of their intentions. He who has a wholesome intention receives full help from Allah, and he who has a deficient intention receives as much less."
