حدثنا علي بن أحمد قال حدثنا محمد بن أبي عبد الله عن محمد بن اسماعيل عن علي بن العباس قال حدثنا القاسم بن الربيع الصحاف عن محمد بن سنان ان ابا الحسن الرضا (ع) كتب إليه فيما كتب من جواب مسائله حرم الله تعالى الفرار من الزحف لما فيه من الوهن في الدين والاستخفاف بالرسل والائمة العادلة وترك نصرتهم على الاعداء والعقوبة لهم على انكار ما دعوا إليه من الاقرار بالربوبية وأظهار العدل وترك الجور وأمانة الفساد، ولما في ذلك من جرئة العدو على المسلمين وما يكون في ذلك من السبي والقتل، وابطال دين الله تعالى، وغيره من الفساد، وحرم التعرب بعد الهجرة للرجوع عن الدين وترك الموازرة للانبياء والحجج عليهم السلام، وما في ذلك من الفساد، وابطال حق كل ذي حق لا لعلة سكنى البدو، ولذلك لو عرف الرجل الدين كاملا لم يجز له مساكنة أهل الجهل والخوف عليه لا يؤمن أن يقع منه ترك العلم، والدخول مع أهل الجهل والتمادي في ذلك.


1. Ali Bin Ahmad narrated to us, from Muhammad Bin Abu Abdullah, from Muhammad Bin Ismail, from Ali Bin Al Abbas, from Al Qasim Al Rabie Al Sahaf, (It has been narrated) from Muhammad Bin Sinan that Abu Al-Hassan Al-Ridha (a.s.) wrote to him in answer to his question: ‘Allah (azwj) the high has Prohibited the fleeing from the army due to what is in it from the weakness for the Religion, and the belittling with the Rasool (saww) and the Just Imams (a.s.), and the neglecting of helping them (a.s.) against the enemy, and the consequences for them (a.s.) upon the denial of what they are inviting to, from the acceptance of the Lordship (of Allah (azwj)) and the manifestation of the justice, and the neglecting of the tyranny, and safety from the corruption, and whatever is in that from the audacity of the enemy upon the Muslims, and what may happen in that from the captivity and the killing, and the invalidation of the Religion of Allah (azwj) the High, etc. from the mischief. And the adoption of the practices of the Pre-Islamic Arabs after the emigration is Prohibited due to the returning from the Religion, and the neglecting of the preaching of the Prophets (as) and the Proofs (a.s.), and what is in that from the corruption, and the invalidation of the rights of everyone with the right, not for the reason of dwelling of the Bedouin. And due to that, if the man understands the Religion completely, it is not allowed for him to dwell with the ignorant people, and the fear over him that he would not be safe that due to them he would end up neglecting the knowledge, and would enter to be among the ignorant people and persisting in that’.
