أخبرني علي بن حاتم فيما كتب إلى قال حدثنا محمد بن عمر قال: حدثنا علي بن محمد بن زياد قال حدثنا أحمد بن الفضل المعروف بأبي عمر، طيبة عن يونس ابن عبد الرحمن عن علي بن أبي حمزة عن أبي بصير عن أبي عبد الله عليه السلام قال المضطر لا يشرب الخمر لانها لا تزيده إلا شرا ولانه إن شربها قتلته فلا يشرب منها قطرة، وروي لا تزيده إلا عطشا.

1. Ali Bin Hatim informed me regarding what was written to him, from Muhammad Bin Umar, from Ali Bin Muhammad Bin Ziyad, from Ahmad Bin Al Fazal, well known as Abu Umar Tayba, from Yunus Ibn Abdul Rahman, from Ali Bin Abu Hamza, from Abu Baseer, (It has been narrated) from Abu Abdullah (a.s.) having said: ‘The desperate one should not drink the wine because it does not increase (in anything) except for the evil, and if it is drunk, it would kill him. Therefore, do not drink a single drop from it’. And it has been reported: ‘It does not increase (in anything) except for the thirst’.
