أَبِی ره قَالَ حَدَّثَنِی سَعْدُ بْنُ عَبْدِ اللَّهِ عَنْ أَحْمَدَ بْنِ أَبِی عَبْدِ اللَّهِ عَنْ أَبِیهِ عَنْ حَمَّادِ بْنِ رِبْعِیٍّ عَنْ أَبِی عَبْدِ اللَّهِ ع قَالَ: مَنْ أَطْعَمَ أَخاً فِی اللَّهِ کَانَ لَهُ مِنَ الْأَجْرِ مِثْلُ مَنْ أَطْعَمَ فِئَاماً مِنَ النَّاسِ قُلْتُ وَ مَا الْفِئَامُ قَالَ مِائَهُ أَلْفٍ مِنَ النَّاسِ.


1. My father (rah) said: it was narrated to me by Sa’d b. Abdillah from Ahmad b. Abi Abdillah from his father from Hamad b. Rib’i from Abi Abdillah (a.s.) who said: “One who feeds a believer for the sake of Allah will get the reward of feeding Fiyaam people.” The narrator asked, “What is meant by Fiyaam?” Imam (a.s.) replied, “A hundred thousand people.”
