6-25 حدثنا محمد بن الحسن رضي الله عنه قال: حدثنا محمد بن يحيى العطار، عن محمد بن أحمد، عن موسى بن عمر، عن ابن المغيرة، عن السكوني، عن جعفر بن محمد عن أبيه، عن آبائه، عن علي عليهم السلام قال: السحت ثمن الميتة، وثمن الكلب، وثمن الخمر، ومهر البغي، والرشوة في الحكم، واجرة الكاهن


6-25 Muhammad ibn al-Hassan - may God be pleased with him - narrated that Muhammad ibn Yahya al-Attar quoted Muhammad ibn Ahmad, on the authority of Musa ibn Umar, on the authority of Ibn al-Muqayrih, on the authority of Al-Sakoony, on the authority of Ja’far ibn Muhammad as-Sadiq (MGB), on the authority of his father (MGB), on the authority of his forefathers (MGB), on the authority of Ali (MGB), “The following are ill-gotten property: money paid for dead animals; money paid for dogs; money paid for wine; the dowry of the fornicatress; the bribes for the judge; and the money paid for fortune-telling.”




6-26 حدثنا أبي رضي الله عنه قال: حدثنا سعد بن عبد الله، عن أحمد بن محمد ابن عيسى، عن الحسن بن محبوب، عن أبي أيوب، عن عمار بن مروان قال: قال أبوعبد الله عليه السلام:السحت أنواع كثيرة، منها ما اصيب من أعمال الولاة الظلمة، ومنها اجور القضاة وأجور الفواجر، وثمن الخمر، والنبيذ المسكر والربا بعد البينة، فأما الرشا ياعمار في الاحكام فان ذلك الكفر بالله العظيم وبرسوله


6-26 (The compiler of the book narrated) that his father - may God be pleased with him - narrated that Sa’ed ibn Abdullah quoted Ahmad ibn Muhammad ibn Isa, on the authority of Al-Hassan ibn Mahboob, on the authority of Abi Ayoob, on the authority of Am’mar ibn Marvan, that Abu Abdullah as-Sadiq (MGB) said, “There are many types of ill-gotten properties. They include: what is earned by oppressive rulers including what judges earn and what prostitutes earn; money earned from wine; intoxicating drinks; usury after it was disallowed. O Am’mar (ibn Marvan)! You should know that taking a bribe for judgement is equal to atheism and denying God’s Prophet (MGB).”
