Back to book

أبي رحمه الله قال: حدثنا علي بن ابراهيم عن أبيه عن صفوان بن يحيى عن عبد الرحمان بن الحجاج قال: سأل رجل أبا عبد الله (ع) وأنا عنده عن جلود الخز فقال: ليس به باس فقلت جعلت فداك انها علاجي وانما هي كلاب تخرج من الماء فقال إذا خرجت تعيش خارجا من الماء قلت لا قال ليس به بأس.

1. My father said, ‘Ali Bin Ibrahim narrated to us, from his father, from Safwan Bin Yahya, from Abdul Rahman Bin Al Hajaj who said, ‘A man asked Abu Abdullah (asws), and I was in his (asws) presence, about the skins of water-weasels. So he (asws) said: ‘There is no problem with it’. So I said, ‘May I be sacrificed for you (asws)! But rather, it is for my cure, and these are dogs which come out from the water’. So he (asws) said: ‘When they come out, do they live outside from the water?’ I said, ‘No’. He (asws) said: ‘There is no problem with it’.

أبى رحمه الله قال حدثنا محمد بن يحيى واحمد بن ادريس جميعا عن أحمد ابن محمد بن عيسى ومحمد بن عيسى عن أيوب بن نوح رفعه قال: قال أبو عبد الله الصلاة في الخز الخالص لا بأس به واما الذي يخلط فيه الارانب أو غيرها مما يشبه هذا فلا تصل فيه.

2. My father said, ‘Muhammad Bin yahya and Ahmad Bin Idrees both together narrated to us, from Ahmad Ibn Muhammad Bin Isa, from Ayoub Bin Nuh, raising it, said, ‘Abu Abdullah (asws) said: ‘The Prayer in the pure water-weasel skin, there is no problem with it, and as for that which is mixed with the rabbit, or other than it, from what resembles this, so do not Pray in it’.
