1-42 حدثنا محمد بن الحسن بن أحمد بن الوليد رضي الله عنه قال: حدثنا محمد ابن الحسن الصفار، عن العباس بن معروف، عن الحسن بن محبوب، عن حنان بن سدير، عن أبيه، عن أبي جعفر عليه السلام قال: كل ذنب يكفره القتل في سبيل الله عز وجل إلا الدين [فانه] لا كفارة له إلا أداءه، أو يقضى صاحبه أو يعفو الذي له الحق


1-42 Muhammad ibn al-Hassan ibn Ahmad ibn al-Walid - may God be pleased with him - narrated that Muhammad ibn al-Hassan al-Saffar quoted on the authority of Al-Abbas ibn Ma’ruf, on the authority of Al-Hassan ibn Mahboob, on the authority of Han’nan ibn Sadeer, on the authority of his father that Abi Ja’far al-Baqir (MGB) said, “Martyrdom in God’s way is expiation for every sin except for one’s debt which has no expiation. One has to pay it back either himself , or the one who has given him the loan should give it up.”
