عنه، عن ابن بنت الياس، عن عبد الله بن سنان، عن الثمالي، عن أبي جعفر عليه السلام قال: قال رسول الله صلى الله عليه وآله: " قال الله تعالى: وعزتي وجلالى، وعظمتي وقدرتي، وعلائى وارتفاع مكاني، لا يؤثر عبد هواى على هواه، الا جعلت غناه في نفسه، وكفيته همه، وكففت عليه ضيعته، وضمنت السماوات والارض رزقه، وكنت له من وراء تجارة كل تاجر. "


1. From him, from Ibn Bint Ilyas, from Abdullah Bin Sinan, from Al Sumaly, (It has been narrated) from Abu Ja’far (a.s.) having said: ‘Rasool-Allah (saww) said: ‘Allah (azwj) the High Said: “By My (azwj) Honour and My (azwj) Majesty, and My (azwj) Magnificence and My (azwj) Power, and My (azwj) Highness and My (azwj) Elevated Status! No servant gives preference to My (azwj) Desire over his own desire except that I (azwj) Enrich him regarding himself, and Suffice him for his worries, and Shield his estate for him, and Make the skies and the earth guarantee his sustenance, and I (azwj) would be behind him in every trade of his business”.
