حدثنا أبو أحمد بن الحسن بن عبد الله بن سعيد العسكري قال: حدثنا أبو القاسم بدر بن الهيثم القاضي قال: حدثنا علي بن المنذر الكوفي قال: حدثنا محمد بن الفضيل عن أبي الصباح قال: قال جعفر بن محمد عليهما السلام،: من أعطي أربعا لم يحرم أربعا: من أعطي الدعاء لم يحرم الإجابة: ومن أعطي الاستغفار لم يحرم التوبة: ومن أعطي الشكر لم يحرم الزيادة، ومن أعطي الصبر لم يحرم الاجر.

1. We were told by Abu Ahmad bin Hasan bin Abdullah bin Sa’eed al-Askari, that he said: We were told by Abu’l-Qasem, Badr bin Haitham, the judge, that he said: We were told by Ali bin Mundhir al-Kufi, that he said: We were told by Muhammed bin Fudail, from Abu’l-Sabah, that he said: Ja’far bin Muhammed, peace be upon them both, said: The one who is given four, will not be prevented from four; the one who is given prayer will not be prevented from response; the one who is given the means to seek forgiveness will not be prevented from repentance; the one who is given the means to thankfulness will not be prevented from increasement; and the one who is given patience will not be prevented from reward.
