حدثنا محمد بن الحسن رحمه الله قال حدثنا محمد بن الحسن الصفار عن احمد وعبد الله ابني محمد بن عيسى عن محمد بن أبي عمير عن حماد بن عثمان عن عبيد الله بن الحلبي قال سألت أبا عبد الله عليه السلام أتغتسل النساء إذا أتين البيت؟ قال: نعم ان الله عزوجل يقول: (ان طهرا بيتي للطائفين والعاكفين والركع السجود)، فينبغي للعبد أن لا يدخل إلا وهو طاهر قد غسل عنه العرق والاذي وتطهر.

1. Muhammad Bin Al Hassan narrated to us, from Muhammad Bin Al Hassan Al Saffar, from Ahmad and Abdullah, the two sons of Muhammad Bin Isa, from Muhammad Bin Abu Umeyr, from Hamaad Bin Usman, from Ubeydullah Bin Al Halby who said, ‘I asked Abu Abdullah (a.s.), ‘Should the women bathe when they come to the House?’ He (a.s.) said: ‘Yes. Allah Mighty and Majestic is Saying [2:125] Purify My House for those who visit (it) and those who abide (in it) for devotion and those who bow down (and) those who prostrate themselves. Thus, it is befitting that the servant should not enter Makka unless he is clean, and has washed his sweat, and his body parts, and is clean’.
