حدثنا محمد بن موسى بن المتوكل رحمه الله قال: حدثنا عبد الله بن جعفر الحميرى عن احمد بن محمد بن عيسى عن الحسن بن محبوب، عن عبد الله بن مسكان عن أبي بصير قال: قال أبو عبد الله (ع) لا تجذ بالليل ولا تحصد بالليل قال وتعطى الحفنة بعد الحفنة والقبضة إذا حصدته، وكذلك عن الصرام وكذلك البذر ولا تبذر بالليل لانك تعطى في البذر كما تعطي في الحصاد.


1. Muhammad Bin Musa Bin Al Mutawakkal narrated to us, from Abdullah Bin Ja’far Al Humeyri, from Ahmad Bin Muhammad Bin Isa, from Al Hassan Bin Mahboub, from Abdullah Bin Muskan, from Abu Baseer who said, ‘Abu Abdullah (asws) said: ‘Neither plough at night nor harvest at night’. He (asws) said: ‘And you should give (away, i.e., charity) a handful after the handful, and the fistful, when you harvest it. And similar to that is about the reaping of dates, and similar to that is the sowing at night, because you give during the sowing just as you give during the harvesting’.
