حدثنا محمد بن علي ماجيلويه عن عمه محمد بن أبي القاسم عن محمد بن علي الكوفي عن خالد بن اسماعيل عمن ذكره عن أبي بصير قال: سألت أبا عبد الله عليه السلام عن محرم نظر إلى ساق امرأة أو إلى فرجها حتى امني، قال: إن كان موسرا فعليه بدنة وإن كان متوسطا فعليه بقرة، وإن كان فقيرا فشاة، ثم قال: أما انى لم اجعلها عليه لمنيه إلا لنظره إلى ما لا يحل له النظر إليه.

1. Muhammad Bin Ali Majaylawiya narrated to us, from his uncle Muhammad Bin Abu Al Qasim, from Muhammad Bin Ali Al Kufy, from Khalid Bin Ismail, from the one who mentioned it, from Abu Baseer who said, ‘I asked Abu Abdullah (a.s.) about the one in Ihraam who looks at a leg of a woman, or to her private part until his semen discharges. He (a.s.) said: ‘If he has financial ease, so upon him is a camel (as a penalty), and if he was moderate (financially), so upon him is a cow, and if he was poor, so a lamb’. Then he (a.s.) said: ‘I (a.s.) did not make it upon him due to his semen (discharging), but for him looking at what is not Permissible for him to look at’.
