Back to book

حَدَّثَنِی مُحَمَّدُ بْنُ مُوسَی بْنِ الْمُتَوَکِّلِ قَالَ حَدَّثَنِی عَبْدُ اللَّهِ بْنُ جَعْفَرٍ الْحِمْیَرِیُّ عَنْ مُحَمَّدِ بْنِ الْحُسَیْنِ بْنِ أَبِی الْخَطَّابِ عَنِ الْخَطَّابِ عَنِ الْحَسَنِ بْنِ مَحْبُوبٍ عَنِ الْمُثَنَّی عَنْ أَبِی بَصِیرٍ عَنْ أَبِی عَبْدِ اللَّهِ ع قَالَ: لَا تُحَقِّرُوا مُؤْمِناً فَقِیراً فَإِنَّهُ مَنْ حَقَّرَ مُؤْمِناً فَقِیراً وَ اسْتَخَفَّ بِهِ حَقَّرَهُ اللَّهُ تَعَالَی وَ لَمْ یَزَلْ مَاقِتاً لَهُ حَتَّی یَرْجِعَ عَنْ تَحْقِیرِهِ أَوْ یَتُوبَ قَالَ وَ مَنِ اسْتَذَلَّ مُؤْمِناً وَ حَقَّرَهُ لِقِلَّهِ ذَاتِ یَدِهِ وَ لِفَقْرِهِ شَهَرَهُ اللَّهُ یَوْمَ الْقِیَامَهِ عَلَی رُءُوسِ الْخَلَائِقِ.


1. It was narrated to me by Muhammad b. Musa b. al-Mutawakil who said it was narrated to me by Abdillah b. Ja’far al-Himyari from Muhammad b. al-Hussain b. Abi al-Khattab from al-Khattab from al-Hassan b. Mahbub from al-Muthana from Abi Basir from Abi Abdillah (a.s.) who said: “Do not insult a poor believer because the Almighty Allah insults one who insults a poor believer. Allah will become his enemy till he does not stop doing so or repents for his deed. One who disgraces a believer because of his poverty the Almighty Allah will disgrace him on the Day of Judgment in front of His entire creation.”
