Hadith #26

26 - حَدَّثَنا أَبي رَضِىَ اللهُ عَنْهُ قالَ: حَدَّثَني عَلِىِّ بْنِ إِبراهِيمِ بْنِ هاشِمٍ، عَنْ ياسِرٍ الخادِم، عَنْ أَبي الحَسَن الرِّضا عَلَيْهِ السَّلامُ قالَ: السَّخِيُّ يَأْكُلُ مِنْ طَعَامِ النَّاسِ لِيَأْكُلُوا مِنْ طَعَامِهِ وَالْبَخِيلُ لا يَأْكُلُ مِنْ طَعَامِ النَّاسِ لِئَلا يَأْكُلُوا مِنْ طَعَامِهِ.

30-26 (The author of the book narrated) my father - may God be pleased with him - narrated that Ali ibn Ibrahim ibn Hashem quoted on the authority of Yasir - the servant - that Abil Hassan Al-Ridha (s) said, “Generous people eat other people’s food so that others eat their food, but stingy people do not eat other people’s food so that others do not eat their food.”
