1- أَبُو عَلِيٍّ الأشْعَرِيُّ عَنْ مُحَمَّدِ بْنِ عَبْدِ الْجَبَّارِ عَنْ بَعْضِ أَصْحَابِنَا عَنْ مَرْوَكِ بْنِ عُبَيْدٍ عَمَّنْ ذَكَرَهُ عَنْ أَبِي عَبْدِ اللهِ (عَلَيْهِ السَّلام) أَنَّهُ قَالَ فِي الْجَيِّدِ دَعْوَتَانِ وَفِي الرَّدِيِّ دَعْوَتَانِ يُقَالُ لِصَاحِبِ الْجَيِّدِ بَارَكَ اللهُ فِيكَ وَفِيمَنْ بَاعَكَ وَيُقَالُ لِصَاحِبِ الرَّدِيِّ لا بَارَكَ اللهُ فِيكَ وَلا فِيمَنْ بَاعَكَ.


1. Abu Ali al-Ash’ariy has narrated from Muhammad ibn ‘Abd al-Jabbar from certain persons of our people from Marwak ibn ‘Ubayd from those whom he has mentioned who has said the following: “Abu ‘Abd Allah, ‘Alayhi al-Salam, has said, ‘There are two expressions for each of good and bad merchandise: To the owner of good merchandise it is said, “May Allah grant you blessings and the one who sold it to you.” To the owner of bad merchandise it is said, “Allah does not bless you and the one who sold it to you.’””

2- مُحَمَّدُ بْنُ يَحْيَى عَنْ مُحَمَّدِ بْنِ أَحْمَدَ عَنْ يَعْقُوبَ بْنِ يَزِيدَ عَنِ الْوَشَّاءِ عَنْ عَاصِمِ بْنِ حُمَيْدٍ قَالَ قَالَ لِي أَبُو عَبْدِ اللهِ (عَلَيْهِ السَّلام) أَيَّ شَيْ‏ءٍ تُعَالِجُ قُلْتُ أَبِيعُ الطَّعَامَ فَقَالَ لِي اشْتَرِ الْجَيِّدَ وَبِعِ الْجَيِّدَ فَإِنَّ الْجَيِّدَ إِذَا بِعْتَهُ قِيلَ لَهُ بَارَكَ اللهُ فِيكَ وَفِيمَنْ بَاعَكَ.


2. Muhammad ibn Yahya has narrated from Ahmad ibn Muhammad from Ya’qub ibn Yazid from al-Washsha’ from ‘Asem ibn Hamid who has said the following: “Once, abu ‘Abd Allah, ‘Alayhi al-Salam, asked me, ‘How do you make a living?’ I replied, ‘I sell foodstuff.’ He (the Imam) said to me, ‘Buy those of good quality and sell of the good quality; if you sell that of good quality it is said, “Allah places blessings in you and the one who sold to you.’””
