Pearl of Wisdom
The Commander of the Faithful (AS) sent someone five camel-loads of dates ... at which a man said to him, 'By Allah, he did not even ask you for anything. Indeed, one camel-load would have been enough to recompense him!' The Commander of the Faithful (AS) replied, may Allah increase not the people of your type! I am giving and you are the one being miserly!'
Imam Ja'far ibn Muhammad al-Sadiq [as]
Wasd 'il al-Shi'a, v. 6, p. 318, no. 1
