Hadith #1

حدثنا أبي - رحمه الله - قال: حدثنا محمد بن يحيى العطار، عن محمد بن أحمد عن إبراهيم بن إسحاق، عن محمد بن سليمان الديلمي، عن أبيه قال: قال أبو عبد الله عليه السلام: لا تدع قيام الليل فإن المغبون من غبن قيام الليل.

1. We were told by my father, may Allah grant him mercy, that he said: We were told by Muhammed bin Yahya al-‘Attar, from Muhammed bin Ahmad bin Ibrahim bin Ishaq, from Muhammed bin Sulayman al-Daylami, from his father, that he said: Abu Abdillah, peace be upon him, said: Do not abandon the standing during the night, for indeed, the defrauded is the one who is defrauded from the standing during the night (in prayer).



Hadith #2

أبي - رحمه الله - قال حدثنا محمد بن يحيى العطار، عن محمد بن أحمد بن يحيى ابن عمران الأشعري بإسناده المذكور في جامعة يرفعه إلى أبي عبد الله عليه السلام أنه قال: المغبون من غبن عمره ساعة بعد ساعة.

2. My father, may Allah grant him mercy, said: We were told by Muhammed bin Yahya al-‘Attar, from Muhammed bin Ahmad bin Yahya ibn Imran al-Asha’ari, with his chain of narrators that is mentioned in his compilation, which he ascribed to Abu Abdillah, peace be upon him, that he said: The defrauded is the one who is defrauded of his age, hour after hour.



Hadith #3

حدثنا محمد بن الحسن بن أحمد بن الوليد، قال: حدثنا محمد بن الحسن الصفار، عن أحمد بن محمد بن خالد، عن أبيه، عن محمد بن أبي عمير، عن هشام بن سالم، عن أبي عبد الله عليه السلام أنه قال: من استوى يوماه فهو مغبون، ومن كان آخر يوميه خيرهما فهو مغبوط، ومن كان آخر يوميه شرهما فهو ملعون، ومن لم ير الزيادة في نفسه فهو إلى النقصان، ومن كان إلى النقصان فالموت خير له من الحياة.

3. We were told by Muhammed bin Hasan bin Ahmad bin Waleed, that he said: We were told by Muhammed bin Hasan al-Saffar, from Ahmad bin Muhammed bin Khalid, from his father, from Muhammed bin Abi ‘Umayr, from Hisham bin Salem, from Abu Abdillah, peace be upon him, that he said: The one to whom two days are equal, is defrauded. The one to whom the last of his two days was the better, is envied. The one to whom the last of his two days was the worst, is cursed. The one who does not look forward to increasement (of quality) in himself, is going towards decrement, and the one who goes towards decrement, death is better for him than life.
