حدثنا حبيب بن الحسن ، ثنا عمر بن حفص ، ثنا عاصم بن علي ، وحدثنا حبيب بن الحسن ، ثنا أبو مسلم الكشي ، ثنا عاصم ، قالا : حدثنا ابن أبي ذئب، ثنا محمد بن قيس ، عن عبد الرحمن بن يزيد بن معاوية ، عن ثوبان ، عن النبي صلى الله عليه وسلم قال : من تقبل لي واحدة تقبلت له بالجنة ؟ قالثوبان : أنا يا رسول الله ، قال : لا تسأل أحدا شيئا ، قال : فلربما سقط السوط لثوبان وهو على بعير فلا يسأل أحدا أن يناوله حتى ينزل إليه فيأخذه.

Muhammad Ibn Qays narrated from Thawban (رضي الله عنه) that Allah’s messenger (صلى الله عليه وسلم ) said, “Whoever accepts this advice from me, I will personally welcome him into paradise. Thawban immediately jumped at the opportunity and said, “O Messenger of Allah, I accept your advice.” Allah’s messenger then said, “Never ask anyone in this world for anything.”

Yazid, son of Mu’awiya (رضي الله عنه) said, commented on the above narration, saying, “For the balance of this life, and even should Thawban’s leather scourge fall while riding his camel, he never asked anyone to hand it to him, and he would descend the camel and pick it up by himself.”
