يَحْيَى الْحَلَبِيُّ عَنْ عَبْدِ اللَّهِ بْنِ مُسْكَانَ عَنْ حَبِيبٍ قَالَ سَمِعْتُ أَبَا عَبْدِ اللَّهِ (عليه السلام) يَقُولُ أَمَا وَ اللَّهِ مَا أَحَدٌ مِنَ النَّاسِ أَحَبَّ إِلَيَّ مِنْكُمْ وَ إِنَّ النَّاسَ سَلَكُوا سُبُلًا شَتَّى فَمِنْهُمْ مَنْ أَخَذَ بِرَأْيِهِ وَ مِنْهُمْ مَنِ اتَّبَعَ هَوَاهُ وَ مِنْهُمْ مَنِ اتَّبَعَ الرِّوَايَةَ وَ إِنَّكُمْ أَخَذْتُمْ بِأَمْرٍ لَهُ أَصْلٌ فَعَلَيْكُمْ بِالْوَرَعِ وَ الِاجْتِهَادِ وَ اشْهَدُوا الْجَنَائِزَ وَ عُودُوا الْمَرْضَى وَ احْضُرُوا مَعَ قَوْمِكُمْ فِي مَسَاجِدِهِمْ لِلصَّلَاةِ أَ مَا يَسْتَحْيِي الرَّجُلُ مِنْكُمْ أَنْ يَعْرِفَ جَارُهُ حَقَّهُ وَ لَا يَعْرِفَ حَقَّ جَارِهِ.


121. Yahya Al-Halby, from Abdullah Bin Muskaan, from Habeeb who said: I heard Abu Abdullah (a.s.) saying: ‘By Allah ! There is no one from the people more beloved to me (a.s.) than you are, and that the people have gone in various directions. So among them is the ‘one’ who takes (religion) to his own opinion, and among them is one who follows his own desires, and among them is the one who follows the narration (Al-Riwayah), and you all have grabbed to a matter for which there is an origin. So it is for you to observe piety, and the struggle, and bear witness to the funerals, and console the sick, and be present with your people in their Masjids for the Prayers. Is it not shameful for the man among you that his right is being observed by his neighbour whilst he himself does not observe the rights of his neighbour?’
