- عنه، عن ابن أبى نجران، عن محمد بن الصلت، قال: حدثنى أبو العديس، عن صالح، قال: قال أبو جعفر (ع): إتبع من يبكيك وهو لك ناصح، ولا تتبع من يضحك وهو لك غاش، وستردون على الله جميعا فتعلمون.

1. From him, from Ibn Abu Najran, from Muhammad Bin Al Salt, from Abu Al Udeys, from Salih who said, ‘Abu Ja’far (a.s.) said: ‘Follow the (advice of) the one who cries for you (cares for you) for he is an adviser, and do not follow the (advice of) the one who laughs at you as he is an adulterator (contaminator) for you’.

عنه، عن محمد بن عيسى، عن بعض أصحابه رفعه قال: قال أبو عبد الله (ع) لا يستغنى المؤمن عن خصلة وبه الحاجة إلى ثلاث خصال، توفيق من الله عزوجل، وواعظ من نفسه، وقبول ممن ينحصه.

From him, from Muhammad Bin Isa, from one of his companions, raising it, said, ‘Abu Abdullah (a.s.) said: ‘The believer is not needless from a quality, and by it is needy to three qualities – successfulness from Allah (azwj) Mighty and Majestic, and a preaching from himself, and accepting (advice) from the one who advises him’.
