- عنه، عن على بن حديد، عن منصور بن يونس وداود بن رزين، عن منهال القصاب، قال: خرجت من مكة وأريد المدينة فمررت بالابواء وقد ولد لابي عبد الله موسى (ع) فسبقته إلى المدينة، ودخل بعدى بيوم، فأطعم الناس ثلاثا، فكنت آكل فيمن يأكل، فما آكل شيئا إلى الغد حتى أعود فآكل، فمكثت بذلك ثلاثا، أطعم حتى أرتفق ثم لا أطعم شيئا إلى الغد.

1. From him, from Ali Bin Hadeed, from Mansour Bin Yunus and Dawood Bin Razeyn, from Minhal Al Qasaab who said, ‘I went out from Makka and I had an intension to (go to) Al-Medina. So as I passed by Al-Abwa, and (there I knew that) Abu Abdullah (a.s.) was blessed with Musa (a.s.). So I proceeded to Al-Medina, and came to him (a.s.) after a day. So the Imam (a.s.) fed the people for three days. So I ate with those who ate, and I did not eat anything (else) until the next day and return and eat (each day). So that prevailed for three days, feeding (us there) until it (the food spread) is raised, (so I did not) eat anything (apart from what I ate there) until the next day’.

عنه، عن أبيه، عن ابن أبى عمير، عن حماد بن عثمان، قال: أولم إسماعيل (ره) فقال له أبو عبد الله (ع): عليك بالمساكين فأشبعهم، فان الله يقول: " وما يبدئ الباطل وما يعيد ".

2. From him, from his father, from Ibn Abu Umeyr, from Hamaad Bin Usman who said, ‘Ismail gave a banquet, Abu Abdullah (a.s.) said to him: ‘It is upon you to feed the poor, so satiate them, for Allah (azwj) is Saying [34:49] and the falsehood neither creates (anything) nor restores (anything)’.
