حدثنا محمد بن الحسن بن أحمد بن الوليد رحمه الله قال: حدثنا محمد ابن الحسن الصفار عن أحمد بن أبي عبد الله البرقي عن الحسين بن يزيد النوفلي عن اسماعيل بن مسلم السكوني عن جعفر بن محمد عن أبيه (ع) قال: قال رسول الله صلى الله عليه وآله ساحر المسلمين يقتل وساحر الكفار لا يقتل، قيل: يا رسول الله ولم لا يقتل ساحر الكفار؟ قال: لان الشرك اعظم من السحر، لان السحر والشرك مقرونان


1. Muhammad Bin Al Hassan Bin Ahmad Bin Al Waleed narrated to us, from Muhammad Ibn Al Hassan Al Saffar, from Ahmad Bin Abu Abdullah Al Barqy, from Al Husayn Bin Yazeed Al Nowfaly, from Ismail Bin Muslim Al Sakuny, (It has been narrated) from Ja’far (asws) Bin Muhammad (asws), from his (asws) father (asws) having said: ‘Rasool-Allah (saww) said: ‘The Muslim sorcerer should be killed, and the Infidel sorcerer should not be killed’. It was said, ‘O Rasool-Allah (saww)! And why shouldn’t the Infidel sorcerer be killed?’ He (saww) said: ‘Because the Polytheism is more grievous than the sorcery, because the sorcery and the Polytheism are coupled’.
