2-20 Muhammad ibn al-Hassan ibn Ahmad ibn al-Walid - may God be pleased with him - narrated that Muhammad ibn al-Hassan al-Saffar quoted on the authority of Muhammad ibn al-Hussein ibn Abil-Khat’tab, on the authority of Ali ibn An-Nue’man, on the authority of Abdullah ibn Miskan, on the authority of Davood ibn Farqad, on the authority of Abi Shaybih az-Zahri that Abi Ja’far al-Baqir (MGB) said, “A servant who is two-faced and has two tongues is bad. He will praise his believing brother in front of him, but talk badly about him in his absence. He will be jealous of him whenever he gets a blessing and will not assist him when a calamity befalls him.”
