- عنه، عن أبيه، عن المطلب بن زياد، عن أبى عبد الله (ع) قال: نعم الادام السمن.


1. From him, from his father, from Al Matlab Bin Ziyad, (It has been narrated) from Abu Abdullah (asws) having said: ‘The best of the dunked foods is the butter’. (e.g. dunking bread in butter).




عنه، عن أبيه، عمن ذكره، عن أبى حفص الابار، عن أبى عبد الله (ع) قال: السمن ما أدخل جوف مثلى، وإنى لاكرهه للشيخ.


2. From him, from his father, from the one who mentioned it, form Abu Hafs Al Abaar, (It has been narrated) from Abu Abdullah (asws) having said: ‘The butter (is for) what enters the bellies like mine (asws), but I dislike it for the elderly’.




عنه، عن الوشاء، عن حماد بن عثمان، قال: كنت عند أبى عبد الله (ع) فكلمه شيخ من أهل العراق، فقال له: مالى أرى كلامك متغيرا قال: سقطت مقاديم فمى فنقص كلامي، فقال: أبو عبد الله (ع): وأنا أيضا قد سقط بعض أسناني، حتى أنه ليوسوس إلى الشيطان فيقول: فإذا ذهبت البقية فبأى شئ تأكل؟ - فأقول: " لا حول ولا قوة إلا بالله " ثم قال له: عليك بالثريد فانه صالح، واجتنب السمن فانه لا يلائم الشيخ.


3. From him, from Al Washa, from Hamaad Bin Usman who said, ‘I was in the presence of Abu Abdullah (asws), and an old man from the people of Iraq spoke to him (asws), so he (asws) said to him: ‘What is the matter I (asws) see your speech to have changed?’ He said, ‘My front jaw has dropped therefore my speech is deficient’. So Abu Abdullah (asws) said: ‘And I (asws) as well, one of my (asws) tooth has fallen, to the extent that the Satans (la) are whispering, so they (la) are saying, ‘If the rest of them go, so with which thing will you (asws) be eating?’ So I (asws) am saying: ‘There is no Might or Strength except with Allah (azwj)’. Then he (asws) said to him: ‘It is on you (to eat) the porridge (Al-Sareyd), for it is correct, and keep away from the butter, for it is not befitting (suitable) for the elderly’.
