حدثنا محمد بن موسى المتوكل رضي الله عنه قال: حدثنا سعد بن عبد الله عن أحمد بن محمد بن عيسى عن العباس بن معروف عن علي بن مهزيار عن محمد بن يحيى الخزاز عن حماد بن عثمان قال قلت لابي عبد الله (ع) ادنى ما يجزى في الهدى من اسنان الغنم قال فقال الجذع من الضأن قال: قلت الجذع من الماعز قال فقال: لا يجزى قال فقلت له جعلت فداك ما العلة فيه قال فقال لان الجذع من الضأن يلقح والجذع من العز لا يلقح.


1. Muhammad Bin Musa Al Mutawakkal narrated to us, from Sa’ad Bin Abdullah, from Ahmad Bin Muhammad Bin Isa, from Al Abbas Bin Marouf, from Ali Bin Mahziyar, from Muhammad Bin Yahya Al Khazaz, from Hamaad Bin Usman who said, ‘I said to Abu Abdullah (asws), ‘The lowest of what suffices regarding the sacrifice from the years of the sheep?’ So he (asws) said: ‘The two year old lamb’. I said, ‘(What about) the two year old from the goat?’ So he (asws) said: ‘It does not suffice’. So I said to him (asws), ‘May I be sacrificed for you (asws)! What is the reason for it?’ So he (asws) said: ‘Because the two year old lamb impregnates, and the two year old goat does not impregnate’.
