حدثنا أحمد بن زياد بن جعفر الهمداني - رضي الله عنه - قال: حدثنا علي بن إبراهيم بن هاشم، عن أبيه، عن محمد بن أبي عمير، عن عمرو بن جميع قال: قال أبو عبد الله عليه السلام: حدثني أبي، عن أبيه، عن جده عليهم السلام قال: قال رسول الله صلى الله عليه وآله: إذا مشت أمتي المطيطاء وخدمتهم فارس والروم كان بأسهم بينهم.

1. We were told by Ahmad bin Ziyad bin Ja’far al-Hamdani, may Allah be pleased with him, that he said: We were told by Ali ibn Ibrahim bin Hashim, from his father, from Muhammed bin Abi ‘Umayr, from Amru bin Jumay’, that he said: Abu Abdillah, peace be upon him, said: I was told by my father, from his father, from his grandfather, that he said: The Messenger of Allah, Allah’s blessings be upon him and his Family, said: If my nation was to walk like mutayta and they were to be served by the Persians and the Romans, their violence will be among themselves.
