1- مُحَمَّدُ بْنُ يَحْيَى عَنْ أَحْمَدَ بْنِ مُحَمَّدٍ عَنْ أَحْمَدَ بْنِ أَبِي عَبْدِ اللهِ عَنْ رَجُلٍ عَنْ جَمِيلٍ عَنْ أَبِي عَبْدِ اللهِ (عَلَيْهِ السَّلام) قَالَ سَمِعْتُهُ يَقُولُ مَنَّ اللهُ عَزَّ وَجَلَّ عَلَى النَّاسِ بَرِّهِمْ وَفَاجِرِهِمْ بِالْكِتَابِ وَالْحِسَابِ وَلَوْ لا ذَلِكَ لَتَغَالَطُوا.

1. Muhammad ibn Yahya has narrated from Ahmad ibn Muhammad from Ahmad ibn abu ‘Abd Allah, from a man from Jamil who has said the following: “I heard abu ‘Abd Allah, ‘Alayhi al-Salam, saying, ‘It is from Allah, most Majestic, most Glorious, upon people, virtuous and sinful ones to write down and keep proper accounting. Without this they, certainly, suffer confusion and mistakes.’”
