Back to book

حَدَّثَنِی مُحَمَّدُ بْنُ عَلِیٍّ مَاجِیلَوَیْهِ عَنْ مُحَمَّدِ بْنِ یَحْیَی عَنْ مُحَمَّدِ بْنِ أَحْمَدَ عَنْ مُحَمَّدِ بْنِ الْحُسَیْنِ عَنْ جَعْفَرِ بْنِ بَشِیرٍ عَنْ دَاوُدَ الرَّقِّیِّ عَنْ أَبِی عَبْدِ اللَّهِ ع قَالَ: إِنَّ الْقَصْدَ أَمْرٌ یُحِبُّهُ اللَّهُ وَ إِنَّ السَّرَفَ أَمْرٌ یُبْغِضُهُ اللَّهُ حَتَّی طَرْحُکَ النَّوَاهَ فَإِنَّهَا تَصْلُحُ لِشَیْ ءٍ وَ حَتَّی صَبُّکَ فَضْلَ شَرَابِکَ.


1. It was narrated to me by Muhammad b. Ali Majluwayh from Muhammad b. Yahya from Muhammad b. Ahmad from Muhammad b. al-Hussain from Ja’far b. Basheer from Dawud al-Raqqi from Abi Abdillah (a.s.) who said: “Moderation is best liked by Allah and He does not like extravagance even though it be equal to a few seeds of dates and a little leftover water.”
