أبى رحمه الله قال: حدثنا سعد بن عبد الله قال حدثنا محمد بن الحسين عن محمد بن اسماعيل بن بزيع عن يونس بن عبد الرحمان، عن رجل من أهل المشرق عن العنزا عن الاحول قال: دخلت على ابى عبد الله عليه السلام فقال: سل عما شئت فارتجت علي المسائل فقال لي سل مابدا لك فقلت جعلت فداك الرجل يستنجى فيقع ثوبه في الماء الذي يستنجى به فقال لا باس به فسكت فقال أو تدري لم صار لا بأس به؟ قلت لا والله جعلت فداك فقال: لان الماء اكثر من القذر.

1. My father said, ‘Sa’ad Bin Abdullah narrated to us, from Muhammad Bin Al Husayn, from Muhammad Bin Ismail Bin Bazie, from Yunus Bin Abdul Rahman, from a man from the people of Al Mashraq, from Al Anza, from Al Ahowl who said, ‘I went over to Abu Abdullah (a.s.), so he (a.s.) said: ‘Ask whatever you like to’. So the questions moved me (hesitated). So he (a.s.) said to me: ‘Ask whatever occurs to you’. So I said, ‘May I be sacrificed for you (a.s.)! The man cleans himself (from defecation), so his cloth falls in the water which he has used to clean himself with’. So he (a.s.) said: ‘There is no problem with it’. So I was quiet. So he (a.s.) said :’Or do you know why it became such that there is no problem with it?’ I said, ‘No, by Allah (azwj), may I be sacrificed for you (a.s.)’. So he (a.s.) said: ‘Because the water is far more than the filth (in it)’.
