3-110 حدثنا أبي رضي الله عنه قال: حدثنا سعد بن عبد الله قال: حدثني القاسم بن محمد، عن سليمان بن داود قال: أخبرني غير واحد من أصحابنا، عن أبي عبد الله عليه السلام قال: مكتوب في حكمة آل داود عليه السلام: لا يظعن الرجل إلا في ثلاث: زاد لمعاد، أو مرمة لمعاش أو لذة في غير محرم، ثم قال: من أحب الحياة ذل


3-110 (The compiler of the book narrated) that his father - may God be pleased with him - narrated that Sa’ed ibn Abdullah quoted Al-Qasim ibn Muhammad, on the authority of Suleiman ibn Davood, on the authority of several of his companions, on the authority of Aba Abdullah as-Sadiq (MGB), “It is recorded in the Wise Sayings of Alih Davood (MGB) that a man would not migrate except for the following three reasons: to attain the necessities for the Hereafter, to improve the affairs of this life, or enjoy what is not forbidden.” Then he (MGB) added, “Whoever loves this life would be debased.”
