Back to book

سَهْلٌ عَنْ بَكْرِ بْنِ صَالِحٍ رَفَعَهُ عَنْ أَبِي عَبْدِ اللَّهِ (عليه السلام) قَالَ النَّاسُ مَعَادِنُ كَمَعَادِنِ الذَّهَبِ وَ الْفِضَّةِ فَمَنْ كَانَ لَهُ فِي الْجَاهِلِيَّةِ أَصْلٌ فَلَهُ فِي الْإِسْلَامِ أَصْلٌ.


197. Sahl, from Bakr Bin Saleh with an unbroken chain from Abu Abdullah (asws) the following: Abu Abdullah (asws) said: ‘The people are (similar to) a mine, like a mine of gold and that of silver. So they had an origin in the days of ignorance (pre-Islam), so there are (very few) who had an origin in Al-Islam’.
