Back to book

أَبِی ره قَالَ حَدَّثَنِی عَلِیُّ بْنُ مُوسَی عَنْ أَحْمَدَ بْنِ مُحَمَّدٍ عَنْ بَکْرِ بْنِ صَالِحٍ عَنِ الْحَسَنِ بْنِ عَلِیِّ بْنِ فَضَّالٍ عَنْ عَبْدِ اللَّهِ بْنِ إِبْرَاهِیمَ عَنِ الْحَسَنِ بْنِ یَزِیدَ عَنْ جَعْفَرٍ عَنْ أَبِیهِ عَنْ آبَائِهِ ع قَالَ قَالَ رَسُولُ اللَّهِ ص إِنَّ أَسْرَعَ الْخَیْرِ ثَوَاباً الْبِرُّ وَ إِنَّ أَسْرَعَ الشَّرِّ عِقَاباً الْبَغْیُ وَ کَفَی بِالْمَرْءِ عَیْباً أَنْ یَنْظُرَ مِنَ النَّاسِ إِلَی مَا یَعْمَی عَنْهُ مِنْ نَفْسِهِ أَوْ یُعَیِّرَ النَّاسَ مَا لَا یَسْتَطِیعُ تَرْکَهُ أَوْ یُؤْذِیَ جَلِیسَهُ بِمَا لَا یَعْنِیهِ.


1. Imam Ja’far Sadiq (a.s.) narrates from his predecessors that the Holy Prophet (s.a.w.s.) said, “The deed that is rewarded soon is a good action and the deed punished soon is injustice. The deed is bad enough when a person sees faults in others but is blind as far as his self is concerned and he advises people to avoid sins but does not avoid them himself and if he troubles with useless talk those who sit with him.”
