1ـ عَلِيُّ بْنُ إِبْرَاهِيمَ عَنْ أَبِيهِ عَنْ حَمَّادِ بْنِ عِيسَى عَنْ حُسَيْنِ بْنِ مُخْتَارٍ عَنِ الْوَلِيدِ بْنِ صَبِيحٍ عَنْ أَبِي عَبْدِ الله (عَلَيهِ السَّلام) قَالَ صَحِبْتُهُ بَيْنَ مَكَّةَ وَالْمَدِينَةِ فَجَاءَ سَائِلٌ فَأَمَرَ أَنْ يُعْطَى ثُمَّ جَاءَ آخَرُ فَأَمَرَ أَنْ يُعْطَى ثُمَّ جَاءَ آخَرُ فَأَمَرَ أَنْ يُعْطَى ثُمَّ جَاءَ الرَّابِعُ فَقَالَ أَبُو عَبْدِ الله (عَلَيهِ السَّلام) يُشْبِعُكَ الله ثُمَّ الْتَفَتَ إِلَيْنَا فَقَالَ أَمَا إِنَّ عِنْدَنَا مَا نُعْطِيهِ وَلَكِنْ أَخْشَى أَنْ نَكُونَ كَأَحَدِ الثَّلاثَةِ الَّذِينَ لا يُسْتَجَابُ لَهُمْ دَعْوَةٌ رَجُلٌ أَعْطَاهُ الله مَالاً فَأَنْفَقَهُ فِي غَيْرِ حَقِّهِ ثُمَّ قَالَ اللهمَّ ارْزُقْنِي فَلا يُسْتَجَابُ لَهُ وَرَجُلٌ يَدْعُو عَلَى امْرَأَتِهِ أَنْ يُرِيحَهُ مِنْهَا وَقَدْ جَعَلَ الله عَزَّ وَجَلَّ أَمْرَهَا إِلَيْهِ وَرَجُلٌ يَدْعُو عَلَى جَارِهِ وَقَدْ جَعَلَ الله عَزَّ وَجَلَّ لَهُ السَّبِيلَ إِلَى أَنْ يَتَحَوَّلَ عَنْ جِوَارِهِ وَيَبِيعَ دَارَهُ.


1. Ali ibn Ibrahim has narrated from his father from Hammad ibn ‘Isa from Husayn ibn Mukhtar from al-Walid ibn Sabih who has said the following: “Once I accompanied abu ‘Abd Allah (a.s.) between Makkah and Madinah and at a certain place a beggar came and he ordered his people to help. Another beggar came he ordered his people to help, another came and he ordered to help, then the fourth one came and abu ‘Abd Allah said, ‘May Allah satisfy you,’ and he turned to us saying, ‘We still can help but I feared becoming of the three kinds of people whose prayers are not heard: a man to whom Allah has granted wealth but he spends it on a wrong cause and then asks, “O Lord, grant me wealth.” His prayer is not accepted, a man who prays against his wife while Allah, the Most Majestic, the Most Holy, has made it lawful to dissolve the marriage, and a man who prays against his neighbor while Allah, the Most Majestic, the Most Holy, has made it possible for him to move away and buy another house.’”
