عنه، عن الحسين بن يزيد النوفلي، عن اسماعيل بن أبي زياد السكوني، عن أبي عبد الله، عن آبائه عليهم السلام، قال: قال رسول الله صلى الله عليه وآله: من ظهرت عليه النعمة فليكثر ذكر " الحمد لله "، ومن كثرت همومه فعليه بالاستغفار، ومن ألح عليه الفقر فليكثر من قول " لا حول ولا قوة إلا بالله " ينفى الله عنه الفقر. وقال: فقد النبي صلى الله عليه وآله رجلا من الانصار، فقال له: ما غيبك عنا؟ - فقال: الفقر، يا رسول الله وطول السقم، فقال له رسول الله صلى الله عليه وآله: ألا اعلمك كلاما إذا قلته ذهب عنك الفقر والسقم؟ - قال: بلى، قال: إذا أصبحت وأمسيت فقل: " لا حول ولا قوة إلا بالله، توكلت على الحي الذي لا يموت، والحمد لله الذي لم يتخذ ولدا ولم يكن له شريك في الملك، ولم يكن له ولي من الذل، وكبره تكبيرا. " قال الرجل: فوالله ما قلته الا ثلاثة أيام حثى ذهب عني الفقر والسقم.


1. From him, from Al Husayn Bin Yazeed Al Nowfaly, from Ismail Bin Abu Ziyad Al Sakuny, (It has been narrated) from Abu Abdullah, from his forefather (a.s.) having said: ‘Rasool-Allah (saww) said: ‘To the one who needs a favour, he should frequent in saying, ‘The Praise is for Allah (azwj)’; and the one who has constant worries, so it is upon him to seek Forgiveness; and the one has poverty, so he should frequent in saying, ‘There is no Power or Strength except with Allah (azwj)’, Allah (azwj) would negate the poverty from him’. And he (a.s.) said: ‘A man from the Helpers was absent from the Prophet (saww), so he (saww) said to him: ‘What made you absent from us (saww)?’ So he said, ‘The poverty, O Rasool-Allah (saww), poverty and the prolonged illness’. So Rasool-Allah (saww) said to him: ‘Shall I (saww) teach you certain words, if you were to say these, the poverty and the illness would go away from you?’ He said, ‘Yes’. He (saww) said: ‘When it is the morning and the evening, so say, ‘There is no Power or Strength except with Allah (azwj). I rely upon Allah (azwj), the Living who does not die; and the Praise is for Allah (azwj) Who did not Take a son, and there is not for him an associate in the Kingdom, and there is not for him a guardian from the humiliation, and I exclaim His (azwj) Greatness’. The man said (later on), ‘By Allah (azwj)! I did not say it except for three days and my poverty and illness went away from me’.
