عنه، عن ادريس بن الحسن، عن يوسف بن عبد الرحمن، عن ابن مسكان، عن أبي بصير، عن أبي عبد الله عليه السلام، قال: أيما رجل من شيعتنا أتاه رجل من اخوانه واستعان به في حاجة فلم يعنه وهو يقدر الا ابتلاه الله بأن يقضى حوائج عدو من أعدائنا يعذبه الله عليه يوم القيامة. وفي رواية سدير عن أبي عبد الله عليه السلام مثله.

1. From him, from Idrees Bin Al Hassan, from Yusuf Bin Abdul Rahman, from Ibn Muskaan, from Abu Baseer, (It has been narrated) from Abu Abdullah (a.s.) having said: ‘Whichever man from our (a.s.) Shias comes to his brother and helps him in a need of his, and he (in return) does not help him although being able to, then Allah (azwj) would Test him whether he fulfils a need of an enemy from our (a.s.) enemies, so Allah (azwj) would Punish him on the Day of Judgement’. And in a report of Sudyer, from Abu Abdullah (a.s.) similar to it (is narrated)’.

عنه، عن سعدان بن مسلم، عن الحسين بن أنس، عن أبي جعفر عليه السلام، قال: من بخل بمعونة أخيه المسلم والقيام في حاجته ابتلى بمعونة من يأثم عليه ولا يؤجر.

2. From him, from Sa’dan Bin Muslim, from Al Husayn Bin Anas, (It has been narrated) from Abu Ja’far (a.s.) having said: ‘The one who is stingy in helping his Muslim brother, and stands (to Pray) with regards to his need, he would be Tested with helping the one who sins, and would not be Recompensed’.
