حدثنا محمد بن الحسن رحمه الله قال: حدثنا محمد بن الحسن الصفار عن العباس بن معروف عن سعدان بن مسلم، عن علي بن أبي حمزة عن أبي عبد الله أو عن أبي بصير عن أبي عبد الله قال: ينبغي لصاحب المصيبة أن لا يلبس الرداء وأن يكون في قميص حتى يعرف وينبغي لجيرانه أن يطمعوا عنه ثلاثة أيام.

1. Muhammad Bin Al Hassan narrated to us, from Muhammad Bin Al Hassan Al Saffar, from Al Abbas Bin Marouf, from Sa’dan Bin Muslim, from Ali Bin Abu Hamza, (It has been narrated) from Abu Abdullah (asws), or from Abu Baseer, from Abu Abdullah (asws) having said: ‘It is befitting for the bereaved (grieving) that he should not wear the robe and be in a shirt until he is recognised (to be as such), and it is befitting for his neighbours that they should feed him for three days’.

وروي عن الصادق عليه السلام انه قال: ملعون من وضع رداءه في مصيبة غيره.

2. And it has been reported, (Imam) Al-Sadiq (asws) has said: ‘Accursed is the one who places his robe in the difficulties of others’.
