Hadith #1

أبي - رحمه الله - قال: حدثنا سعد بن عبد الله، عن أحمد بن محمد بن خالد، قال: حدثنا بعض أصحابنا بلغ به سعد بن طريف، عن الأصبغ بن نباتة، عن الحارث الأعور، قال: قال أمير المؤمنين للحسن ابنه عليهما السلام في بعض ما سأله عنه: يا بني ما السماحة؟ قال: البذل في العسر واليسر.

1. My father, may Allah grant him mercy, said: We were told by Sa’d bin Abdullah, from Ahmad bin Muhammed bin Khalid, that he said: We were told by some of our companions to whom Sa’d bin Turaif informed, from Asbagh bin Nubata, from Harith, the half-blinded, that he said: The Commander of the Believers said to Hasan, his son, peace be upon them both, among some of what he asked him of: O my son, what is lenience? He said: Spending during (occasions of) distress and ease.
