حدثنا علي بن احمد رحمه الله قال: حدثنا محمد بن أبي عبد الله قال: حدثنا محمد بن اسماعيل عن علي بن العباس قال: حدثنا القاسم بن الربيع الصحاف عن محمد بن سنان ان أبا الحسن علي بن موسى عليه السلام كتب إليه فيما كتب من جواب مسائله علة القتل في اقامة الحد في الثالثة لاستخفافهما وقلة مبالاتهما بالضرب حتى كأنهما مطلق لهما الشئ، وعلة اخرى أن المستخف بالله وبالحد كافر فوجب عليه القتل لدخوله في الكفر.

1. Ali Bin Ahmad narrated to us, from Muhammad Bin Abu Abdullah, from Muhammad Bin Ismail, from Ali Bin Al Abbas, from Al Qasim Bin Al Rabie Al Sahaaf, (It has been narrated) from Muhammad Bin Sinan that Abu Al-Hassan Ali (a.s.) Bin Musa (a.s.) wrote to him in answer to what he had asked him (a.s.): ‘The reason for the killing during the establishment of the Limit during the third (offence) because they both belittled the whipping and did not care about it as if it was an absolute thing for them both. And another reason is that, the belittler of Allah (azwj) and His (azwj) Limits is a disbeliever, thus Obligating upon him the killing, as he entered into the disbelief’.

أبي رحمه الله قال: حدثنا سعد بن عبد الله عن يعقوب بن يزيد عن محمد بن أبي عمير عن جميل بن دراج عن أبي عبد الله (ع) انه قال: في شارب الخمر إذا شربها ضرب فان عاد ضرب فان عاد قتل في الثالثة.

2. My father said, ‘sa’ad Bin Abdullah narrated to us, from Yaqoub Bin Yazeed, from Muhammad Bin Abu Umeyr, from Jameel Bin Daraaj, (It has been narrated) from Abu Abdullah (a.s.) having said: ‘Regarding the drinker of the wine, when he drinks it, should be hit. So if he were to repeat it, should be hit (again). So if he repeats it, should be killed during the third (offence)’.
