1ـ عِدَّةٌ مِنْ أَصْحَابِنَا عَنْ أَحْمَدَ بْنِ مُحَمَّدٍ عَنْ عَبْدِ الله بْنِ مُحَمَّدٍ الْحَجَّالِ عَنْ ثَعْلَبَةَ بْنِ مَيْمُونٍ عَمَّنْ ذَكَرَهُ عَنْ أَبِي عَبْدِ الله (عَلَيهِ السَّلام) قَالَ كَانَ عِنْدَهُ قَوْمٌ يُحَدِّثُهُمْ إِذْ ذَكَرَ رَجُلٌ مِنْهُمْ رَجُلاً فَوَقَعَ فِيهِ وَشَكَاهُ فَقَالَ لَهُ أَبُو عَبْدِ الله (عَلَيهِ السَّلام) وَأَنَّى لَكَ بِأَخِيكَ كُلِّهِ وَأَيُّ الرِّجَالِ الْمُهَذَّبُ.


1. A number of our people have narrated from Ahmad ibn Muhammad ibn Muhammad from ‘Abd Allah ibn Muhammad al-Hajjal from Tha’Labah ibn Maymun from those whom he has mentioned (in his book) from abu ‘Abd Allah (a.s.) who has said the following: “Once in the presence of abu ‘Abd Allah (a.s.) there were people speaking to him. One man mentioned the name of another man and he began to criticize him and complained against him. Abu ‘Abd Allah (a.s.) asked, ‘Where from can you have a perfect brother? Who is among man, free and pure of faults and flaws?”’
