Back to book

3-53 حدثنا محمد بن علي ماجيلويه قال: حدثنا محمد بن يحيى العطار، عن سهل بن زياد الادمي قال: حدثني عثمان بن عيسى، عن خالد بن نجيح، عن أبي عبد الله عليه السلام قال: تذاكروا الشوم عنده، فقال: الشوم في ثلاثة في المرأة والدابة والدار، فأما شوم المرأة فكثرة مهرها وعقوق زوجها، وأما الدابة فسوء خلقها ومنعها ظهرها، وأما الدار فضيق ساحتها، وشر جيرانها، وكثرة عيوبها

3-53 Muhammad ibn Ali Majiluyih - may God be pleased with him - narrated that Muhammad ibn Yahya al-Attar quoted Sahl ibn Zyad al-Adamy, on the authority of Uthman ibn Isa, on the authority of Khalid ibn Najih, “The issue of bad omen was brought up in the presence of Aba Abdullah as-Sadiq (MGB). The Imam (MGB) said, ‘There is a bad omen in three things: women, riding animals and houses. The thing with bad omen in women is the greatness of the nuptial gift and the displeasure of her husband; the thing with bad omen in riding an animal is in its not being tamed and not giving a ride; and the thing with bad omen in a house is in its small yard, bad neighbors and its many shortcomings.”
