47. Two Leaders Who Are Not in Power

Back to book

2-58 حدثنا أبي رضي الله عنه قال: حدثنا محمد بن يحيى العطار، عن محمد بن أحمد، عن أحمد بن محمد باسناده رفعه إلى أبي عبد الله عليه السلام قال: قال رسول الله صلى الله عليه وآله: أميران وليسا بأميرين، ليس لمن تبع جنازة أن يرجع حتى تدفن أو يؤذن له، ورجل يحج مع امرأة فليس له أن ينفر حتى تقضي نسكها


2-58 (The compiler of the book narrated) that his father - may God be pleased with him - narrated that Muhammad ibn Yahya al-Attar quoted Muhammad ibn Ahmad, who linked it up through a chain of narrators to Aba Abdullah as-Sadiq (MGB), who said that God’s Prophet (MGB) said, “There are two leaders who are not in power: The man who is following a corpse in a funeral procession doesn’t have the power to return until the body is buried, and a man who is on a Hajj pilgrimage visit along with a woman doesn’t have the power to leave until she finishes her Hajj pilgrimage.”
