حدثنا محمد بن موسى بن المتوكل رضي الله عنه قال: حدثنا محمد بن يحيى العطار عن محمد بن احمد عن ابراهيم بن اسحاق عن محمد بن سليمان الديلمي عن عبد الله بن سنان قال: قال أبو عبد الله (ع) ان صدقة الظلف والخف تدفع إلى المتجملين من المسلمين فاما صدقة الذهب والفضة وما كيل بالقفيز مما اخرجت الارض فالى الفقراء المدقعين. قال ابن سنان: قلت فكيف صار هذا هكذا؟ قال: لان هؤلاء متجملون من الناس فيدفع إليهم اجمل الامرين عند الناس وكل صدقة.


1. Muhammad Bin Musa Bin Al Mutawakkal narrated to us, from Muhammad Bin Yahya Al Ataar, from Muhammad Bin Ahmad, from Ibrahim Bin Is’haq, from Muhammad Bin Suleyman Al Dulaymi, from Abdullah Bin Sinan who said, ‘Abu Abdullah (asws) said: ‘Charity of the hooves (animals) and the shoes, you should hand these over to the adorned ones from the Muslim. As for the charity of the gold and the silver, and what is eaten measured from what comes out from the earth, so it is for the extremely poor’. Ibn Sinan said, ‘I said, ‘So how come this came to be like this?’ He (asws) said: ‘Because those adorned ones from the people, so the nicer of the two things in the presence of the people would be handed over to them, and all of it is charity’.
