Maʿānī al-ʾAkhbār > The meaning of an abundance of property
Hadith #1

حدثنا محمد بن موسى بن المتوكل - رضي الله عنه - قال: حدثنا علي بن الحسين السعد آبادي، عن أحمد بن أبي عبد الله البرقي، عن أبيه، عن محمد بن أبي عمير، عن بعض أصحابنا، عن أبي عبد الله عليه السلام أنه قال في رجل نذر أن يتصدق بمال كثير، فقال: الكثير ثمانون فما زاد لقول الله تبارك وتعالى: " لقد نصركم الله في مواطن كثيرة " و كانت ثمانين موطنا.

1. We were told by Muhammed bin Musa bin Mutawakkil, may Allah be pleased with him, that he said: We were told by Ali bin Hussain Sa’d-Abadi, from Ahmad bin Abi Abdillah al-Barqi, from his father, from Muhammed bin Abi ‘Umayr, from some of our companions, from Abu Abdillah, peace be upon him, that he said with regards to a man who swore an oath to give an abundance of money as charity. He said: An abundance is eighty and what is above, due to the saying of Allah, Blessed and Exalted is He: «Certainly, Allah assisted you in many places» (9:25) and they were eighty places.
