Maʿānī al-ʾAkhbār > The meaning of sa’iba
Hadith #1

حدثنا محمد بن موسى بن المتوكل قال: حدثنا عبد الله بن جعفر الحميري أحمد بن محمد، عن الحسن بن محبوب، عن خالد بن جرير، عن أبي الربيع الشامي، قال: سئل أبو عبد الله عليه السلام عن السائبة فقال: الرجل يعتق غلامه ويقول: اذهب حيث شئت ليس لي من ميراثك شئ وليس علي من جريرتك شئ [قال] ويشهد شاهدين.

1. We were told by Muhammed bin Musa bin Mutawakkil, that he said: We were told by Abdullah bin Ja’far al-Himyari, from Ahmad bin Muhammed, from Hasan bin Mahbub, from Khalid bin Jareer, from Abu’l-Rabee’ al-Shami, that he said: Abu Abdillah, peace be upon him, was asked about the sa’iba, so he said: It is that a man liberates his boy and says: «Go to where you wish I have nothing to inherit from you, nor is there anything from your guilt.» He said: And that two witnesses testify.
