Back to chapter

4 - قال: أخبرنا أبو غالب أحمد بن محمد الزراري قال: حدثني جدي محمد بن سليمان قال: حدثنا محمد بن خالد، عن عاصم بن حميد، عن أبي عبيدة الحذاء قال: سمعت أبا جعفر محمد بن علي الباقر عليهما السلام يقول: قال رسول الله صلى الله عليه وآله: إن أسرع الخير ثوابا البر، وأسرع الشر عقابا البغي، وكفى بالمرء عيبا أن يبصر من الناس ما يعمي عنه من نفسه، وأن يعير الناس بما لا يستطيع تركه، وأن يؤذي جليسه بما يعنيه .


4. He said: Abu Ghalib Ahmad ibn Muhammad al-Zurari reported to me from his grandfather Muhammad ibn Sulaiman, who reported from Muhammad ibn Khalid, from Asim ibn Hamid, from Abu Ubaidah al-Hazza’, who said: I heard Abu Ja’far Muhammad ibn ‘Ali al-Baqir, peace be upon him, reporting that the Prophet, peace be upon him and his progeny, said: "A good act which attracts quickest reward (from Allah) is righteousness, and an evil act which draws close His wrath is to be oppressive. And the worst drawback in a person is that he sees (faults) in others, while he does not see the same in himself, and reproaches others for that which he himself cannot give up, and makes his companions suffer things with which he is not concerned."
