Maʿānī al-ʾAkhbār > The meaning of generosity of the grace
Hadith #1

حدثنا محمد بن علي ماجيلويه - رضي الله عنه -، عن عمه محمد بن أبي القاسم، عن محمد بن علي الصيرفي، عن سعدان بن مسلم، عن حسين بن نعيم، عن أبي عبد الله عليه السلام قال: يا حسين أكرم النعمة . قلت: جعلت فداك، وأي شئ كرامتها؟ قال: اصطناع المعروف فيما يبقى عليك.

1. We were told by Muhammed bin Ali Majilawayh, may Allah be pleased with him, from his paternal uncle, Muhammed bin Abi’l-Qasim, from Muhammed bin Ali al-Sayrafi, from Sa’dan bin Muslim, from Hussain bin Na’eem, from Abu Abdillah, peace be upon him, that he said: O Hussain, be generous with the grace. I said: May I be sacrificed for you, and what thing is generosity with it? He said: To attempt doing good with what remains to you.
