1. A number of our people have narrated from Ahmad ibn Muhammad ibn Khalid from ‘Isma’il ibn Mehran from Sayf ibn ‘Amirah from ‘Amr ibn Shamir from Jabir from abu Ja’far, ‘Alayhi al-Salam , who has said the following: “The Messenger of Allah, O Allah, grant compensation to Muhammad and his family worthy of their services to Your cause, has said, Those who seek to please people by means of things that displease Allah, the most Majestic, the most Glorious, people who praise them turn to blame them. Those who prefer to obey Allah, the most Majestic, the most Glorious, by means of things that displease people, Allah, the most Majestic, the most Glorious, suffices them against the animosity of all enemies, jealousy of all jealous ones, the transgression of all transgressors and Allah is their helper and supporter.”’
