أبي رحمه الله قال: حدثنا سعد بن عبد الله عن محمد بن عيسى عن ابن أبي عمير عن علي بن يقطين قال: سمعت أبا الحسن الاول (ع) لا تنزل في القبر وعليك العمامة ولا القلنسوة ولا الحذاء ولا الطيلسان وحل ازررارك فذلك سنة من رسول الله صلى الله عليه وآله، قلت: فالخف؟ قال: لا أرى به بأسا، قلت لم يكره الحذاء؟ قال: مخافة أن يعثر برجيله فيهدم.


1. My father said, ‘Sa’ad Bin Abdullah narrated to us, from Muhammad Bin Isa, from Ibn Abu Umeyr, from Ali Bin Yaqteen who said, ‘I heard Abu Al-Hassan (a.s.) The First (saying: ‘Do not descend into the grave and upon you is the turban, nor the hat, nor the shoes, nor the mantle, and loosen your trouser, so that is a Sunnah from Rasool-Allah (saww)’. I said, ‘So what about the socks?’ He (a.s.) said: ‘I (a.s.) do not see a problem with it’. I said, ‘Why are the shoes disliked?’ He (a.s.) said: ‘Fear that he would stumble by his feet and fall’.
