Back to book

حَدَّثَنِی مُحَمَّدُ بْنُ مُوسَی بْنِ الْمُتَوَکِّلِ قَالَ حَدَّثَنِی مُحَمَّدُ بْنُ جَعْفَرٍ قَالَ حَدَّثَنِی مُوسَی بْنُ عِمْرَانَ عَنِ الْحُسَیْنِ بْنِ یَزِیدَ یَرْفَعُهُ إِلَی أَبِی عَبْدِ اللَّهِ ع قَالَ: لَأَنْ أَتَصَدَّقَ عَلَی رَجُلٍ مُسْلِمٍ بِقَدْرِ شِبَعِهِ أَحَبُّ إِلَیَّ مِنْ أَنْ أُشْبِعَ أُفُقاً مِنَ النَّاسِ قُلْتُ وَ مَا الْأُفُقُ قَالَ مِائَهُ أَلْفٍ أَوْ یَزِیدُونَ.


1. It was narrated to me by Muhammad b. Musa b. al-Mutawakil who said it was narrated to me by Muhammad b. Ja’far who said it was narrated to me by Musa b. ’Imran from al-Hussain b. Yazid who raised it to Abi Abdillah (a.s.) who said: “Giving Sadaqah to a Muslim so much that the latter is satisfied is dearer to me than feeding one Afaq men.” The narrator asked, “What is meant by one Afaq?” Imam (a.s.) replied, “A hundred thousand or more than that.”
