أبي رحمه الله قال: حدثنا علي بن ابراهيم عن محمد بن عيسى عن يونس بن عبد الرحمان عن اسحاق بن عمار، عن أبي ابراهيم (ع) قال: سألته، عن صدقة الفطرة اعطيها غير أهل ولايتى من فقراء جيراني؟ قال نعم الجيران احق بها لمكان الشهرة.

1. My father said, ‘Ali Bin Ibrahim narrated to us, from Muhammad Bin Isa, from Yunus Bin Abdul Rahman, from Is’haq Bin Amaar, (The narrator says), ‘I asked Abu Ibrahim (a.s.) (7 (th) Imam (a.s.)) about the charity of Al-Fitra, ‘Shall I give it to other than the people of other than my wilayah (non-Shiah), from the poor of my neighbours?’ He (a.s.) said: ‘Yes. The neighbour is more deserving of it in the place of publicity’.
