[5/278] ارشاد المفيد: جعفر بن محمد بن قولويه، عن محمد بن يعقوب الكليني، عن علي بن إبراهيم، عن أبيه، عن جماعة من رجاله، عن يونس بن يعقوب قال: كنت عند أبي عبد الله عليه السلام فورد عليه رجل من أهل الشام ... ثم قال: يا هشام لا تكاد تقع تلوي رجليك إذا هممت بالأرض طرت، مثلك فليكلم الناس، فاتق الزلة والشفاعة من ورائها إن شاء الله

5. [5/278] Irshad al-Mufid: Ja’far b. Muhammad b. Qulawayh from Muhammad b. Ya’qub al-Kulayni from Ali b. Ibrahim from his father from a number of his men from Yunus b. Ya’qub who said: I was at Abi Abdillah’s عليه السلام when a man from the people of Sham came … then he [the Imam] said: O Hisham, you never fall flat [settle on the ground], every time it seems that you are about to come to ground [i.e. be defeated] you just bend your legs [to able to leap] and off you fly away again. The likes of you should debate the people. Therefore be wary of slipping and you will find that succor is around the corner if Allah wills.
