حدثنا أبو الحسن محمد بن أحمد بن علي الأسدي، قال: حدثنا عبد الله بن محمد بن المر زبان، قال: حدثنا علي بن الجعد، قال أخبرنا شعبة، عن أبي عمران الجوني، عن عبد الله بن الصامت، قال: قال أبو ذر - رحمة الله عليه - قلت: يا رسول الرجل يعمل لنفسه ويحبه الناس. قال: تلك عاجل بشرى المؤمن.

1. We were told by Abu’l-Hasan, Muhammed bin Ahmad bin Ali al-Asadi, that he said: We were told by Abdullah bin Muhammed bin Mir-Zaban, that he said: We were told by Ali bin Ja’d, that he said: We were informed by Shu’ba, from Abu Imran al-Jouni, from Abdullah bin Samit, that he said: Abu Dharr, upon whom is the mercy of Allah, said: I said: O Messenger of Allah, a man would act for himself and the people would leave him. He said: That is the hasting good news for a believer.
