عَنْهُ عَنْ هَارُونَ بْنِ مُسْلِمٍ عَنْ مَسْعَدَةَ عَنْ أَبِي عَبْدِ اللَّهِ (عليه السلام) [عَنْ أَبِيهِ ع] أَنَّهُ قَالَ لِرَجُلٍ وَ قَدْ كَلَّمَهُ بِكَلَامٍ كَثِيرٍ فَقَالَ أَيُّهَا الرَّجُلُ تَحْتَقِرُ الْكَلَامَ وَ تَسْتَصْغِرُهُ اعْلَمْ أَنَّ اللَّهَ عَزَّ وَ جَلَّ لَمْ يَبْعَثْ رُسُلَهُ حَيْثُ بَعَثَهَا وَ مَعَهَا ذَهَبٌ وَ لَا فِضَّةٌ وَ لَكِنْ بَعَثَهَا بِالْكَلَامِ وَ إِنَّمَا عَرَّفَ اللَّهُ جَلَّ وَ عَزَّ نَفْسَهُ إِلَى خَلْقِهِ بِالْكَلَامِ وَ الدَّلَالَاتِ عَلَيْهِ وَ الْأَعْلَامِ.


128. From him, from Haroun Bin Muslim, from Mas’ada, who has narrated the following: Abu Abdullah (asws), from his (asws) father (asws) having said to a man who spoke to him by a lengthy speech, so he (asws) said: ‘O you man who belittles the speech, and considers knowledge to be insignificant, know that Allah (azwj) did not Send His (azwj) Rasool (as) along with gold and silver, but He (azwj) Sent him (saww) by the speech. But rather, Allah (azwj) Majestic and Mighty Made Himself (azwj) Recognised to the creatures by the speech, and the evidence (pointing) towards Him (azwj), and the Signs’.
