Maʿānī al-ʾAkhbār > The meaning of the saying of the Prophet, Allah’s blessings be upon him and his Family, to the man to whom he said: «You and what you own is for your father»
Hadith #1

أبي - رحمه الله - قال: حدثنا أحمد بن إدريس، قال: حدثنا محمد بن أحمد، عن محمد بن عيسى، عن علي بن الحكم، عن الحسين بن أبي العلاء، قال: قلت لأبي عبد الله عليه السلام: ما يحل للرجل من مال ولده؟ فقال: قوته بغير سرف إذا اضطر إليه. قال: فقلت له: فقول رسول الله صلى الله عليه وآله للرجل الذي أتاه فقدم إليه أباه فقال: أنت ومالك لأبيك؟ فقال: إنما جاء بأبيه إلى النبي صلى الله عليه وآله وقال له: يا رسول الله هذا أبي وقد ظلمني ميراثي من أمي فأخبره الأب أنه قد أنفقه عليه وعلى نفسه. فقال: أنت ومالك لأبيك ولم يكن عند الرجل شئ، أو كان رسول الله صلى الله عليه وآله يحبس أبا لابن؟!

1. My father, may Allah grant him mercy, said: We were told by Ahmad bin Ibdrees, that he said: We were told by Muhammed bin Ahmad, from Muhammed bin Isa, from Ali bin Hakam, from Hussain bin Abi’l-‘Alaa’, that he said: I said to Abu Abdillah, peace be upon him: What is permissible for a man from the property of his children? He said: His nourishment, without excess, if he is compelled to it. He said: Then I said to him: Then what about the saying of Allah’s Messenger, Allah’s blessings be upon him and his Family, to the man who came to him and presented his father to him, to whom he said: «You and what you own is for your father»? He said: He only brought his father to the Prophet, Allah’s blessings be upon him and his Family, and said to him: «O Messenger of Allah, this is my father and he has wronged me with regards to my inheritance from my mother.» Then the father informed him that he had spent it on him and on himself. Then he said: «You and what you own is for your father» and the man did not have anything. Would the Messenger of Allah, Allah’s blessings be upon him and his Family, keep in custody a father for a son?
