Hadith to report:
8. He said: Abul Hasan Ahmad ibn Muhammad ibn Al-Hasan reported to me from his father, from Muhammad ibn al-Hasan al-Saffar, from Ahmad ibn Muhammad ibn Isa, from Safwan ibn Yahya, from Mansoor ibn Hazim, from Abu Hamza, from ‘Ali ibn al-Husayn Zainul Abideen (A.S.) that the Prophet (peace be upon him and his progeny) said: "The most beloved steps in Allah’s estimation are two: one taken by a Mu’min to fill the rank in the way of Allah, another taken by a Mu’min to mend the relations with a blood relative who had cut off. And the most worthy swallows in His estimation are two: the swallow of anger by a Mu’min while reacting to provocation with gentleness, and swallow of sadness and anxiety, giving a patient response to the trying times. And the most beloved droplets in His estimation are two: a drop of blood spilled in the way of Allah, and a drop of tears shed in the darkness of night, fearing Allah."
