حدثنا محمد بن الحسن قال حدثنا محمد بن الحسن الصفار عن أحمد بن محمد بن عيسى عن أبيه عن الحسين بن خالد قال قلت لابي عبد الله عليه السلام لاي شئ صار الحاج لا يكتب لهم ذنب أربعة اشهر؟ قال: لان الله تبارك وتعالى أباح للمشركين أشهر الحرم أربعة أشهر إذ يقول فسيحوا في الارض اربعة اشهر فمن ثم وهب لم حج من المؤمنين البيت الذنوب اربعة أشهر.


1. Muhammad Bin Al Hassan narrated to us, from Muhammad Bin Al Hassan Al Saffar, from Ahmad Bin Muhammad Bin Isa, from his father, from Al Husayn Bin Khalid who said, ‘I said to Abu Abdullah (asws), ‘For which thing did the Pilgrim came to be such that no sin is Written for him for four months (after the performance of Hajj)?’ He (asws) said: ‘Because Allah (azwj) Blessed and High Permitted for the Polytheists sacred months, four months when He (azwj) Said [9:2] So go about in the land for four months. So from then onwards He (azwj) Gifted (Forgave) the Believers who perform the Hajj of the House (Kabah), sins for four months’.
