Maʿānī al-ʾAkhbār > The meaning of compulsion and coercion
Hadith #1

حدثنا محمد بن علي ماجيلويه، عن عمه محمد بن أبي القاسم، عن محمد بن علي الكوفي، عن موسى بن سعدان، عن عبد الله بن القاسم، عن عبد الله بن سنان قال: قال أبو عبد الله عليه السلام: لا يمين في غضب ولا في إجبار ولا في إكراه. قلت: أصلحك الله، فما الفرق بين الاكراه والاجبار؟ قال: الاجبار من السلطان، والاكراه يكون من الزوجة والام والأب وليس بشئ.

1. We were told by Muhammed bin Ali Majilawayh, from his paternal uncle, Muhammed bin Abi’l-Qasem, from Muhammed bin Ali al-Kufi, from Musa bin Sa’dan, from Abdullah bin Qasem, from Abdullah bin Sinan, that he said: Abu Abdillah, peace be upon him, said: There is no right hand (valid in promise) in the case of anger, nor in coercion, nor in compulsion. I said: May Allah rectify you, then what is the difference between compulsion and coercion? He said: Coercion is from the ruler, and compulsion is from a wife, mother and father, and is nothing.
