'Abdullah said, "The person who has had something stolen from him continues to be suspicious until he is worse than the thief."

حَدَّثَنَا يُوسُفُ بْنُ يَعْقُوبَ، قَالَ‏:‏ حَدَّثَنَا يَحْيَى بْنُ سَعِيدٍ أَخُو عُبَيْدٍ الْقُرَشِيِّ، قَالَ‏:‏ حَدَّثَنَا الأَعْمَشُ، عَنْ أَبِي وَائِلٍ، عَنْ عَبْدِ اللهِ قَالَ‏:‏ مَا يَزَالُ الْمَسْرُوقُ مِنْهُ يَتَظَنَّى حَتَّى يَصِيرَ أَعْظَمَ مِنَ السَّارِقِ‏.‏
