Maʿānī al-ʾAkhbār > The meaning of the righteous saying and the righteous deed
Hadith #1

حدثنا محمد بن موسى بن المتوكل - رضي الله عنه - قال: حدثنا علي بن الحسين السعد آبادي، قال: حدثنا أحمد بن أبي البرقي، عن أبيه، عن محمد بن زياد، عن أبان، وغيره، عن الصادق جعفر بن محمد عليهما السلام، قال: من ختم صيامه بقول صالح وعمل صالح تقبل الله عز وجل منه صيامه. فقيل له: يا ابن رسول الله ما القول الصالح؟ قال: شهادة أن لا إله إلا الله، والعمل الصالح إخراج الفطرة.

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, that he said: We were told by Ahmad bin Abi Abdillah al-Barqi, from his father, from Muhammed bin Ziyad, from Aban, and others, from al-Sadiq, Ja’far bin Muhammed, peace be upon them both, that he said: The one who seals his fasting with a righteous saying and a righteous deed, Allah, Exalted and Glorious is He, will accept his fasting. It was then said to him: O son of Allah’s Messenger, what is the righteous saying? He said: The testimony that there is no god but Allah, and the righteous deed is to extract the (alms tax related to) Fitra.
