أبي رحمه الله قال: حدثنا سعد بن عبد الله عن هارون بن مسلم عن أيوب بن الحر أخي أديم بن الحر قال: قلت لابي عبد الله (ع) مملوك يعرف هذا الامر الذي نحن عليه اشتريه من الزكاة فاعتقه؟ قال: فقال أشتره واعتقه قلت فان هو مات وترك مالا؟ قال: فقال ميراثه لاهل الزكاة لانه الذي اشتري بسهمهم وفي حديث آخر بمالهم.

1. My father said, ‘Sa’ad Bin Abdullah narrated to us, from Haroun Bin Muslim, from Ayoub Bin Al Hurr, brother of Adeym Bin Al Hurr who said, ‘I said to Abu Abdullah (a.s.), ‘A slave who recognises this matter which we are upon (Al-Wilayah), I buy him from the Zakat, so I free him?’ So he (a.s.) said: ‘Buy him, free him’. I said, ‘So if he were to die and leaves wealth?’ So he (a.s.) said: ‘His inheritance is for the ones deserving of the Zakat because he is the one who was bought with their portion’. And in another Hadeeth: ‘With their wealth’.
