6-29 حدثنا أبي رضي الله عنه قال: حدثنا سعد بن عبد الله، عن أحمد بن محمد ابن عيسى، عن العباس بن معروف، عن أبي جميلة، عن سعد بن طريف، عن الاصبغ ابن نباتة قال: سمعت عليا عليه السلام يقول: ستة لا ينبغي أن يسلم عليهم، وستة لا ينبغي [لهم] أن يأموا، وستة في هذه الامة من أخلاق قوم لوط، فأما الذين لا ينبغي أن يسلم عليهم: فاليهود، والنصارى، وأصحاب النرد والشطرنج، وأصحاب الخمر، والبربط والطنبور، المتفكهون بسب الامهات، والشعراء. وأما الذين لا ينبغي أن يأموا من الناس فولد الزنا، والمرتد، والاعرابي بعد الهجرة وشارب الخمر والمحدود، والاغلف. وأما التي من أخلاق قوم لوط فالجلاهق وهو البندق والحذف، ومضغ العلك، وإرخاء الازار خيلاء، وحل الازرار من القباء والقميص


6-29 (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-Abbas ibn Ma’ruf, on the authority of Abi Jamileh, on the authority of Sa’ed ibn Tarif, on the authority of Al-Asbaq ibn al-Nobatat that he had heard Ali (MGB) say, “There are six groups of people who do not deserve to be greeted. There are six people who do not deserve to lead the prayer and there are six acts which are those that the people of Lot did. Those who do not deserve to be greeted are: Jews; Christians;, chess players; backgammon players; alcoholics; people who play the Barbat and Tanbour ; those who joke around by swearing at each other’s mother; and poets. Those who do not deserve to lead prayers are: those who are born as a result of fornication; those who have abandoned the religion; those who emigrate from an Islamic environment; those who drink wine; those punished for violating Islamic decrees; and those who are not circumcised. And the following are things that the people of Lot did: shooting round bullets using a kind of sling ; chewing gum; walking with their clothes hanging out and running around with pride; and leaving their shirt’s unbuttoned (so that their chest is seen).”
