Hadith #2

2ـ أَحْمَدُ بْنُ مُحَمَّدٍ عَنْ عَلِيِّ بْنِ الصَّلْتِ عَنْ زُرْعَةَ عَنْ مِنْهَالٍ الْقَصَّابِ قَالَ قَالَ أَبُو عَبْدِ الله (عَلَيْهِ السَّلاَم) أَعْطِ الْكَبِيرَ وَالْكَبِيرَةَ وَالصَّغِيرَ وَالصَّغِيرَةَ وَمَنْ وَقَعَتْ لَهُ فِي قَلْبِكَ رَحْمَةٌ وَإِيَّاكَ وَكُلَّ وَقَالَ بِيَدِهِ وَهَزَّهَا.

2. Ahmad ibn Muhammad has narrated from Ali ibn al-Salt from Zur‘ah, from Minhal al-Qassab who has said the following: “Abu ‘Abd Allah, ‘Alayhi al-Salam, has said, ‘Give charity to old men and women, small boys and girls, and to whomever you sympathize with; never give charity to those . . he moved his hand as if shaking something off his hand (a reference to those hostile to ’A’immah).”
