286. The reason due to which the debt is disliked

Back to book

أبي رحمه الله قال حدثنا سعد بن عبد الله عن ابراهيم بن هاشم عن النضر بن سويد عن رجل عن الحلبي عن أبي عبد الله (ع) قال: لاتباع الدار ولا الجارية في الدين وذلك انه لا بد للرجل المسلم من ظل يسكنه وخادم يخدمه.

1. My father said, ‘Sa’ad Bin Abdullah narrated to us, from Ibrahim Bin Hashim, from Al Nazar Bin Suweyd, from a man, from Al Halby, (It has been narrated) from Abu Abdullah (a.s.) having said: ‘Do not sell the house nor the slave girl with regards to the debt, and that is because it is inevitable for the Muslim man to have a shade for his dwelling, and a servant who serves him’.

حدثنا محمد بن الحسن رحمه الله قال حدثنا علي بن ابراهيم عن أبيه قال: كان ابن أبي عمير رجلا بزازا، وكان له على رجل عشرة آلاف درهم فذهب ماله وافتقر، فجاء الرجل فباع دارا له بعشرة آلاف درهم وحملها إليه فدق عليه الباب فخرج إليه محمد بن أبي عمير رحمه الله فقال له الرجل هذا مالك الذي لك علي فخذه فقال ابن أبي عمير: فمن اين لك هذا المال ورثته؟ قال: لا، قال: وهب لك، قال: لا ولكني بعت داري الفلاني لا قضى ديني، فقال ابن أبي عمير رحمه الله حدثني ذريح المحاربي عن أبي عبد الله (ع) انه قال: لا يخرج الرجل من مسقط رأسه بالدين، ارفعها فلا حاجة لي فيها، والله اني محتاج في وقتي هذا إلى درهم وما يدخل ملكى منها درهم.

2. Muhammad Bin Al Hassan narrated to us, from Ali Bin Ibrahim, from his father who said, ‘Ibn Abu Umeyr was a cloth merchant and had a debtor of ten thousand Dirhams, but his wealth had gone and he had been impoverished. So the man went and sold his house for ten thousand Dirhams and carried it over to him and knocked upon the door. So Muhammad Bin Abu Umeyr came out to him. The man said to him, ‘This is your wealth which is for you and was upon me (as a debt), therefore take it’. So, Ibn Abu Umyer said, ‘From where is this wealth for you, did you inherit it?’ He said, ‘No’. He said, ‘Was it gifted to you?’ He said, ‘No, but I sold my house in order to pay back my debt’. So Ibn Abu Umeyr said, ‘Zareeh Al Maharby narrated to me from Abu Abdullah (a.s.) having said: ‘The man will not be thrown out from his birth place due to the debt’. Raise it, for there is no need for me with regards to it. By Allah (azwj), although I am currently needy for this for even a single Dirham, I will not enter a single Dirham of it into my possession’.
