For Charity

Ibrahim b. Yasar narrated from Ja’far b. Muhammad b. Hakim from Ibrahim b. ‘Abd al-Hamid fom Zarara b. Ayan from Abu Ja'far al-Baqir, peace be upon him, from his father from his grandfather from Amir al-Mu’minin, peace be upon him, who said: ‘The Messenger of Allah, blessings on him, said, “Treat your sick with charity (al-sadaqa).”’

From him, blessings of Allah on him and his family: “Charity drives away inevitable affliction, so treat your sick with charity.”

From him, blessings of Allah on him and his family: “Charity drives away an evil death from a person.”

From Musa b. Ja’ far, peace be upon him, that a man complained to him: “I have many dependants, all of whom are ill.” Musa b. Ja’far, peace be upon him, replied: “Treat them with charity, for there is nothing more quick of response nor more beneficial for the patient than charity.”
