الأيْدِي ثَلاثَةٌ: فَيَدُ اللَّهِ العُلْيَا؛ وَيَدُ المُعَطِي الَّتِي تَلِيْهَا؛ وَيَدُ السَّائِلِ السُّفْلى، فَاعْطِ الفَضْلَ وَلا تَعْجَزْ عَنْ نَفْسِكَ.

Hands are of three kinds: God's hand which above all hands stands, the giver's hand which stands below God's hand and the receiver's hand which below the other two stands. Be generous, therefore, and be not close- handed.

أَصَابَتْكُمْ فِتْنَةُ الضَّرَّاءِ فَصَبَرْتُمْ؛ وَاِنَّ أَخوَفَ مَا أَخَافُ عَلَيْكُمْ فِتْنَةُ السَّرَّاءِ مِنْ قِبَلِ النِّساءِ؛ اِذا تَسَوَّرْنَ الذَّهَبَ وَلَبِسْنَ رُبُطَ الشَّامِ وَعَصْبَ اليَمَنِ وَأتْعَبنَ الغَنِىَّ وَكَلَّفْنَ الفَقِيرَ مَا لا يَجِدُ.

Hard trials (hardships) befell you and you kept patient, but I am worried about you as to harder trials on the part of women when they decorate themselves with gold, and dress themselves in precious cloths, thereby causing troubles for the rich and asking the poor what they cannot afford.

سَارِعُوْا في طَلَبِ العِلْمِ، فَالْحَديثُ مِنْ صَادِقٍ خَيْرٌ مِنَ الدُّنْيا وَمَا عَلَيْها مِنْ ذَهَبٍ وَفِضَّةٍ.

Helping a Muslim brother in his requests is more favorite to me than keeping fast for a month and having ritual seclusion in the holy Mosque.

مُنَاوَلَةُ المِسْكِيْنِ تَقِي مِيْتَةَ السُّوْءِ.

Helping the poor, suspends terrible deaths.

عَوْنُ العَبْدِ أخَاهُ يَوْمَاً خَيْرٌ مِنْ اِعْتِكَافِهِ شَهْرَاً.
