عنه، عن محمد بن على، عن يونس بن يعقوب، قال: أرسلنا ألى أبى عبد الله (ع) بقديرة فيها نار باج، فأكل منها ثم قال: احبسوا بقيتها على، قال: فأتى بها مرتين أو ثلاثة، ثم إن الغلام صب فيها ماء وأتاه بها، فقال: ويحك أفسدتها على.

But the servant poured water over it and brought it (to him (asws)), so he (asws) said: ‘Fie upon you! You have spoilt these’.
