أخبرني علي بن حاتم قال: اخبرنا الحسين بن محمد قال: اخبرنا احمد بن محمد السياري عن العمركى عمن ذكره عن أبي عبد الله عليه السلام قال: قلت لم قلتم مولى الرجل منه، قال: لانه خلق من طينته، ثم فرق بينهما فرده السبي إليه فعطف عليه ما كان فيه منه فاعتقه فلذلك هو منه.

1. Ali Bin Hatim informed me, from Al Husayn Bin Muhammad, from Ahmad Bin Muhammad Al Sayyari, from Al Amarky, from the one who mentioned it, (It has been narrated) from Abu Abdullah (a.s.), said, ‘I said, ‘Why are you (a.s.) saying the slave of the man as being from him?’ He (a.s.) said: ‘Because he has been created from his clay, then separation was effected between the two of them, so the captive is referred to him, and he is kind towards him whatever was in it from him, so he frees him. Thus, it is due to that, he is from him’.
