Pearl of Wisdom

'When Allah blesses His servant with bounties and it is manifest about him, he is called the beloved of Allah and a proclaimer of Allah's bounties, and when Allah blesses a servant with bounties and he does not show it, he is called the despiser of Allah and a denier of Allah's bounties.'

Imam Ja'far ibn Muhammad al-Sadiq [as]
Ibid. v. 6, p. 438, no. 2
