182. The reason regarding the difference between what comes out from the healthy (person) and what comes out from the sick (person), from the thick waterBack to book
أبى رحمه الله قال: حدثنا علي بن ابراهيم عن ابيه عن ابن المغيرة عن حريز عن ابن أبى يعفور قال: قلت لابي عبد الله عليه السلام الرجل يرى في المنام انه يجامع ويجد الشهوة فيستيقظ وينظر فلا يرى شيئا ثم يمكث بعد فيخرج قال: ان كان مريضا فليغتسل وان لم يكن مريضا فلا شئ عليه قال: قلت فما الفرق بينهما قال: لان الرجل إذا كان صحيحا جاء الماء بدفقة قوية، وان كان مريضا لم يجئ إلا بضعف.
1. My father said, ‘Ali Bin Ibrahim narrated to us, from his father, from Ibn Al Mugheira, from Hareyz, from Ibn Abu Yafour who said, ‘I said to Abu Abdullah (a.s.), ‘The man sees in his dream that he is copulating and finds the desire. So he wakes up and looks, but he does not see anything. Then he remains for a while afterwards, so it comes out’. He (a.s.) said: ‘If he was sick, so he should wash, and if he was not sick, so there is nothing upon him’. I said, ‘So what is the difference between the two of them?’ He (a.s.) said: ‘Because the man, when he was healthy, his water comes strongly spurting out, but if he was sick, it would not come except with the weakness’.
أبى رحمه الله قال: حدثنا علي بن ابراهيم عن ابيه، عن حماد عن حريز عن زرارة عن أبى جعفر عليه السلام قال: إذا كانت مريضا فاصابتك شهوة فانه ربما كان هو الدافق لكنه يجئ مجيئا ضعيفا ليست له قوة لمكان مرضك ساعة بعد ساعة قليلا قليلا فاغتسل منه.
2. My father said, ‘Ali Bin Ibrahim narrated to us, from his father, from Hamaad, from Hareyz, from Zarara, Abu Ja’far (a.s.) having said: ‘When you are sick and are hit by desire, so perhaps it was the continuously coming out with a weak flowing, not having any strength to it, due to your illness, time after time, little by little, so you should wash (major ablution) from it’.
