1ـ عَلِيُّ بْنُ إِبْرَاهِيمَ عَنْ أَبِيهِ عَنِ النَّوْفَلِيِّ عَنِ السَّكُونِيِّ عَنْ أَبِي عَبْدِ الله (عَلَيهِ السَّلام) قَالَ قَالَ رَسُولُ الله (صَلَّى اللهُ عَلَيْهِ وآلِه) مَنْ طَلَبَ رِضَا النَّاسِ بِسَخَطِ الله جَعَلَ الله حَامِدَهُ مِنَ النَّاسِ ذَامّاً.


1. Ali ibn Ibrahim has narrated from his father from al-Nawfali from al-Sakuni from abu ‘Abd Allah (a.s.) who has said the following: “The Messenger of Allah has said, ‘Whoever seeks the pleasure of people to anger Allah, Allah will make the people who praise him vilify.’”

2ـ عِدَّةٌ مِنْ أَصْحَابِنَا عَنْ أَحْمَدَ بْنِ مُحَمَّدِ بْنِ خَالِدٍ عَنْ إِسْمَاعِيلَ بْنِ مِهْرَانَ عَنْ سَيْفِ بْنِ عَمِيرَةَ عَنْ عَمْرِو بْنِ شِمْرٍ عَنْ جَابِرٍ عَنْ أَبِي جَعْفَرٍ (عَلَيهِ السَّلام) قَالَ قَالَ رَسُولُ الله (صَلَّى اللهُ عَلَيْهِ وآلِه) مَنْ طَلَبَ مَرْضَاةَ النَّاسِ بِمَا يُسْخِطُ الله كَانَ حَامِدُهُ مِنَ النَّاسِ ذَامّاً وَمَنْ آثَرَ طَاعَةَ الله بِغَضَبِ النَّاسِ كَفَاهُ الله عَدَاوَةَ كُلِّ عَدُوٍّ وَحَسَدَ كُلِّ حَاسِدٍ وَبَغْيَ كُلِّ بَاغٍ وَكَانَ الله عَزَّ وَجَلَّ لَهُ نَاصِراً وَظَهِيراً.


2. A number of our people have narrated from Ahmad ibn Muhammad ibn Khalid from Isma’il ibn Mehran from Sayf ibn ‘Amirah from ‘ Amr ibn Shimr from Jabir from abu Ja’far (a.s.) who has said the following: “The Messenger of Allah has said, ‘Whoever seeks the pleasure of people with that which angers Allah, the people praising will belittle him. Whoever gives preference to Allah’s obedience with that which angers people, Allah will suffice him against the animosity of every enemy, the envy of all enviers and the transgression of all transgressors. Allah, the Most Majestic, the Most Holy, will be his helper and supporter.’”

3ـ عَنْهُ عَنْ شَرِيفِ بْنِ سَابِقٍ عَنِ الْفَضْلِ بْنِ أَبِي قُرَّةَ عَنْ أَبِي عَبْدِ الله (عَلَيهِ السَّلام) قَالَ كَتَبَ رَجُلٌ إِلَى الْحُسَيْنِ (صَلَّى اللهُ عَلَيْهِ وآلِه) عِظْنِي بِحَرْفَيْنِ فَكَتَبَ إِلَيْهِ مَنْ حَاوَلَ أَمْراً بِمَعْصِيَةِ الله كَانَ أَفْوَتَ لِمَا يَرْجُو وَأَسْرَعَ لِمَجِي‏ءِ مَا يَحْذَرُ.


3. It is narrated from him (narrator of the Hadith above) from Sharif ibn Sabiq from al-Fadl ibn abu Qarrah from abu Qurrah from abu ‘Abd Allah (a.s.) who has said the following: “Once, a man wrote al-Husayn (a.s.) asking, ‘Instruct me with good advice in two letters.’ The Imam wrote back to him, ‘Whoever seeks to acquire something by means of what angers Allah (his deed as such) will be most harmful to his hopes and most hastening to the coming of that which frightens him.’”

4ـ أَبُو عَلِيٍّ الأشْعَرِيُّ عَنْ مُحَمَّدِ بْنِ عَبْدِ الْجَبَّارِ عَنْ صَفْوَانَ عَنِ الْعَلاءِ عَنْ مُحَمَّدِ بْنِ مُسْلِمٍ قَالَ قَالَ أَبُو جَعْفَرٍ (عَلَيهِ السَّلام) لا دِينَ لِمَنْ دَانَ بِطَاعَةِ مَنْ عَصَى الله وَلا دِينَ لِمَنْ دَانَ بِفِرْيَةِ بَاطِلٍ عَلَى الله وَلا دِينَ لِمَنْ دَانَ بِجُحُودِ شَيْ‏ءٍ مِنْ آيَاتِ الله.


4. Abu Ali al-Ash’ari has narrated from Muhammad ibn ‘Abd al-Jabbar from Safwan from al-‘Ala’ from Muhammad ibn Muslim who has said the following: “Abu Ja’far (a.s.) has said, ‘Whoever obeys, considering it a matter of his religion, one who disobeys Allah, has no religion, and so also is one who follows what is forged against Allah as well as one who accepts as a matter of his religion, to reject any signs of Allah.’”
