Back to book

حَدَّثَنِی مُحَمَّدُ بْنُ الْحَسَنِ قَالَ حَدَّثَنِی مُحَمَّدُ بْنُ الْحَسَنِ الصَّفَّارُ عَنِ الْعَبَّاسِ بْنِ مَعْرُوفٍ عَنْ عَلِیِّ بْنِ مَهْزِیَارَ عَنْ جَعْفَرِ بْنِ بَشِیرٍ عَنْ سَیْفٍ عَنْ أَبِی عَبْدِ اللَّهِ ع قَالَ: مَنْ لَمْ یَسْتَحْیِ مِنْ طَلَبِ الْمَعَاشِ خَفَّتْ مَئُونَتُهُ وَ رَخِیَ بَالُهُ وَ نُعِّمَ عِیَالُهُ وَ مَنْ زَهِدَ فِی الدُّنْیَا أَنْبَتَ اللَّهُ الْحِکْمَهَ فِی قَلْبِهِ وَ انْطَلَقَ بِهَا لِسَانُهُ وَ بَصَّرَهُ عُیُوبَ الدُّنْیَا دَاءَهَا وَ دَوَاءَهَا وَ أَخْرَجَهُ مِنْهَا سَالِماً إِلَی دَارِ السَّلَامِ.


1. It was narrated to me by Muhammad b. al-Hassan who said it was narrated to me by Muhammad b. al-Hassan al-Saffar from al-Abbas b. Ma’ruf from Ali b. Mahziyar from Ja’far b. Basheer from Sayf from Abi Abdillah (a.s.) who said: “One who does not feel shy in earning his sustenance and meets his expenses is prosperous and has a good family. One who observes piety in the world, Allah fills his heart with wisdom, makes his tongue speak, keeps him away from worldly defects, diseases and their treatments and takes him to the ‘abode of peace’ (Daarus Salaam) safe and sound.”
