Pearl of Wisdom

'Allah Almighty revealed to David (AS), 'You would be a great worshipper, if it was not for the fact that you consume from the treasury and do not labour at all with your own hands.' He said, 'David (AS) then cried, so Allah revealed unto the iron, 'Soften yourself for my worshipper David, and it did.' So, Allah softened the metal for him, and he used to make an armour shield every day, and would sell it for one thousand dirhams. He made three hundred and sixty shields and sold them for three hundred and sixty thousand dirhams, and hence he no longer needed the treasury.'

Imam Ali ibn Abi Talib [as]
Kitab man la yahdurahi al-Faqih, v. 3, p. 162, no. 3594
