Back to book

أَبِی ره قَالَ حَدَّثَنِی سَعْدُ بْنُ عَبْدِ اللَّهِ عَنْ أَحْمَدَ بْنِ مُحَمَّدٍ عَنِ الْحَسَنِ بْنِ مَحْبُوبٍ عَنْ مَالِکِ بْنِ عَطِیَّهَ عَنْ سَعِیدٍ الْأَعْرَجِ عَنْ أَبِی عَبْدِ اللَّهِ ع قَالَ: مِنْ أَوْثَقِ عُرَی الْإِیمَانِ أَنْ یُحِبَّ فِی اللَّهِ وَ یُبْغِضَ فِی اللَّهِ وَ یُعْطِیَ فِی اللَّهِ وَ یَمْنَعَ فِی اللَّهِ.


1. My father (rah) said: it was narrated to me by Sa’d b. Abdillah from Ahmad b. Muhammad from al-Hassan b. Mahbub from Malik b. ’Atiyyah from Sa’eed al-A’raj from Abi Abdillah (a.s.) who said: “One of the most definite signs of belief is that one loves for the sake of Allah, hates for the sake of Allah, grants for the sake of Allah and deprives for the sake of Allah.”
