1. We were told by Muhammed bin Hasan bin Ahmad bin Waleed, may Allah be pleased with him, that he said: We were told by Muhammed bin Hasan al-Saffar, that he said: We were told by Ibrahim bin Hashim, from Hussain bin Yazid al-Nawfali, from Isma’eel bin Abi Ziyad al-Sukuni, from Ja’far bin Muhammed, from his father, from his fathers, from Ali, peace be upon them, that he said: The Messenger of Allah, Allah’s blessings be upon him and his Family, said: (There are) Two strange things, so expect them: a word of wisdom from a fool, so accept it; and a word of foolishness from a wise, so forgive it.
