Hadith #1

حدثنا محمد بن القاسم المفسر الجرجاني - رضي الله عنه - قال: حدثنا أحمد ابن الحسن الحسيني، عن الحسن بن علي الناصر [ي]، عن أبيه، عن محمد بن علي، عن أبيه الرضا، عن أبيه موسى بن جعفر عليهم السلام قال: سئل الصادق عليه السلام عن الزاهد في الدنيا، قال: الذي يترك حلالها مخافة حسابه ويترك حرامها مخافة عقابه.

1. We were told by Muhammed bin Qasem, the exegete, al-Jarjani, may Allah be pleased with him, that he said: We were told by Ahmad ibn Hasan al-Hussaini, from Hasan bin Ali al-Nasiri, from his father, from Muhammed bin Ali, from his father, al-Rida, from his father, Musa bin Ja’far, peace be upon them, that he said: Al-Sadiq, peace be upon him, was asked about the abstinent in this world. He said: The one who abandons what is allowable from it out of fear of its reckoning (on the Day of Judgement), and who abandons its forbidden out of fear of its punishment.
