أبي - رحمه الله - قال: حدثنا سعد بن عبد الله، عن أحمد بن محمد بن خالد، عن أبيه، عن ابن أبي عمير، عن منصور بن يونس، عن أبي بصير، عن أبي عبد الله عليه السلام قال: سمعته يقول: الكذبة تفطر الصائم. قال: فقلت له: هلكنا، قال: لا، إنما أعني الكذب على الله عز وجل وعلى رسوله صلى الله عليه وآله وعلى الأئمة عليهم السلام.

1. My father, may Allah grant him mercy, said: We were told by Sa’d bin Abdullah, from Ahmad bin Muhammed bin Khalid, from his father, from Ibn Abi ‘Umayr, from Mansour bin Yunus, from Abu Baseer, from Abu Abdillah, peace be upon him, that he said: I heard him say: A lie breaks the fast of the fasting. He said: Then I said to him: Then we have perished! He said: No, I only meant lying about Allah, Exalted and Glorious is He, about His Messenger, Allah’s blessings be upon him and his Family, and about the Imams, peace be upon them.
