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 المحرم يريد أن يعمل العمل فيقول له صاحبه: والله لا تعمله، فيقول والله لاعملته، فيخالفه مرارا، أيلزم ما يلزم صاحب الجدال؟ قال: قال لا، لانه أراد بهذا إكرام أخيه إنما ذلك ما كان لله معصية، قال: وسأله عن محرم رمى ظبيا فاصاب يده فعرج منها، قال: ان كان الظبي مشى عليها ورعى فليس عليه شئ وان كان ذهب علي وجهه فلم يدر ما يصنع فعليه الفداء لانه لا يدري لعله هلك.

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 intending that he does some work, so his companions said to him, ‘By Allah (azwj)! Do not do it’. So he was saying, ‘By Allah (azwj)! I will do it!’ So he opposed him repeatedly. Does it necessitate what is necessitated upon the one the disputing one?’ He (a.s.) said: ‘No, because he intended by this, as a benevolence for his brother. But rather, that is for what was not for the Sake of Allah (azwj), so it would be a disobedience’. He (the narrator) said, ‘And he (a.s.) was asked about the one in Ihraam who threw (an arrow) at an antelope, so it hit its front left, so it limped from it’. He (a.s.) said: ‘If the antelope walked towards him and pastured, so there would not be anything upon him (no penalty), and if it went away upon its direction, so he does not know what happened to it, so upon it would be the redemption penalty, because he does not know, perhaps it has perished’.
