Maʿānī al-ʾAkhbār > The meaning of the disgrace and the gesture
Hadith #1

حدثنا محمد بن علي ماجيلويه، عن عمه، عن محمد بن علي الكوفي، عن حضين ابن مخارق أبي جنادة السلولي، عن أبي حمزة، عن أبي جعفر، عن أبيه عليهما السلام قال: قال رسول الله صلى الله عليه وآله: من صام شعبان كان له طهرا من كل زلة ووصمة وبادرة. قال أبو حمزة: فقلت لأبي جعفر عليه السلام: ما الوصمة؟ قال: اليمين في معصية، ولا نذر في معصية قلت: فما الباردة؟ قال: اليمين عند الغضب، والتوبة منها الندم عليها.

1. We were told by Muhammed bin Ali Majilawayh, from his paternal uncle, from Muhammed bin Ali al-Kufi, from Hudhayn ibn Mukhariq, Abu Junada al-Salouli, from Abu Hamza, from Abu Ja’far, from his father, peace be upon them both, that he said: The Messenger of Allah, Allah’s blessings be upon him and his Family, said: The one who fasts (the month of) Sha’ban will have a purification from every unintentional mistake, disgrace and gesture. Abu Hamza said: Then I said to Abu Ja’far, peace be upon him: What is the disgrace? He said: The right hand (in promise) in an act of disobedience; there is no oath (valid) in an act of disobedience. I said: Then what is the gesture? He said: The right hand (in promise) during anger; the repentance from it is to regret upon it.
