1. Sudair Sairafee says that he went to Imam Ja’far Sadiq (a.s.) wearing white shoes. Imam enquired, “How about this shoes? Did you wear them purposely?” He replied, “May I be sacrificed for you, it is not so.” Imam said, “One who goes to market with an intention of buying white shoes and buys them; then before those shoes are worn out, that person gets such a wealth, which he would have never expected.” Abu Naeem says that Sudair informed him saying, “My shoes were not worn out yet and I received a hundred dirhams from somewhere I had never expected.”
