Obligatoriness of acting by knowledge

باب 9 - وجوب العمل بالعلم بان يفعل كل ما علم وجوبه ويترك كل ما علم تحريمه

 

Chapter 9 – Obligatoriness of acting by knowledge so that one does everything whose obligatoriness is known and abandons everything whose forbiddance is known

 

[ 752 ] 1 - محمد بن يعقوب، عن علي بن ابراهيم، عن أبيه، عن ابن ابي عمير، عن هشام بن سالم قال: قلت لابي عبد الله ع: ما حق الله على خلقه ؟ قال: ان يقولوا ما يعلمون ويكفوا عما لا يعلمون، فإذا فعلوا ذلك فقد ادوا إلى الله حقه.

 

1 – Muhammad b. Ya`qub from `Ali b. Ibrahim from his father from Ibn Abi `Umayr from Hisham b. Salim.  He said: I said to Abu `Abdillah عليه السلام:  What is the right of Allah upon His creation?  He said: That they say what they know, and halt at what they do not know.  So if they do that, then they have rendered unto Allah His right.

 

اقول: والاحاديث في ذلك كثيرة متواترة قد ذكرنا جملة منها في الكتاب المذكور.

 

I say: And the ahadith regarding that are many, mutawatir.  We have mentioned a sum of them in the aforementioned book.
