أَبِی ره قَالَ حَدَّثَنِی سَعْدُ بْنُ عَبْدِ اللَّهِ عَنْ أَحْمَدَ بْنِ أَبِی عَبْدِ اللَّهِ عَنْ أَبِیهِ عَنْ مُحَمَّدِ بْنِ سِنَانٍ عَنْ بَشِیرٍ النَّبَّالِ قَالَ سَمِعْتُ جَعْفَرَ بْنَ مُحَمَّدٍ ع قَالَ: مَنْ أَعْتَقَ نَسَمَهً صَالِحَهً لِوَجْهِ اللَّهِ کَفَّرَ اللَّهُ عَنْهُ مَکَانَ کُلِّ عُضْوٍ مِنْهُ عُضْواً مِنَ النَّارِ.
