أبي رحمه الله قال: حدثنا سعد بن عبد الله عن إبراهيم بن هاشم عن النوفلي عن السكوني عن جعفر بن محمد عن أبيه عليهما السلام ان عليا (ع) قال في رجل نذر أن يصوم زمانا، قال: الزمان خمسة اشهر، والحين ستة اشهر، لان الله تعالى يقول: (تؤتي أكلها كل حين باذن ربها).

1. My father said, ‘Sa’ad Bin Abdullah narrated to us, from Ibrahim Bin Hashim, from Al Nowfaly, from Al Sakuny, (It has been narrated0 from Ja’far (a.s.) Bin Muhammad (a.s.), from his (a.s.) father (a.s.) that Ali (a.s.) said regarding a man who vowed that he would Fast for a ‘time’ (unspecified). He (a.s.) said: ‘The time (unspecified) is for five months, and the season is of six months, because Allah (azwj) the High is Saying [14:25] Yielding its fruit in every season by the permission of its Lord’.
