Maʿānī al-ʾAkhbār > The meaning of true happiness and misery
Hadith #1

حدثنا محمد الحسن بن أحمد بن الوليد - رحمه الله - قال: حدثنا محمد بن الحسن الصفار، عن أحمد بن أبي عبد الله، عن أبيه، عن وهب بن وهب القرشي، عن جعفر بن محمد، عن أبيه عليهما السلام أن عليا عليه السلام قال: إن حقيقة السعادة أن يختم للمرء عمله بالسعادة، و إن حقيقة الشقاء أن يختم للمرء عمله بالشقاء.

1. We were told by Muhammed bin Hasan bin Ahmad bin Waleed, may Allah grant him mercy, that he said: We were told by Muhammed bin Hasan al-Saffar, from Ahmad bin Abi Abdillah, from his father, from Wahab bin Wahab al-Qurashi, from Ja’far bin Muhammed, from his father, peace be upon them both, that Ali, peace be upon him, said: Indeed, the true happiness is that an individual seals his deed with happiness, and the true misery is that an individual seals his deed with misery.
