Hadith #1

حدثنا أبو الحسين محمد بن هارون الزنجاني، قال: حدثنا علي بن عبد العزيز عن أبي عبيد القاسم بن سلام بإسناد متصل إلى النبي صلى الله عليه وآله أنه كتب لوائل بن الحجر الحضرمي ولقومه " من محمد رسول الله إلى الأقيال العباهلة من أهل حضرموت بإقام الصلاة وإيتاء الزكاة، وعلى التيعة شاة، والتيمة لصاحبها، وفي السيوب الخمس، لا خلاط، و لا وراط، ولا شناق، ولا شغار، ومن أجبى فقد أربى، وكل مسكر حرام ".

1. We were told by Abu’l-Hasan, Muhammed bin Harun al-Zanjani, that he said: We were told by Ali bin Abdul-Aziz, from Abu Ubaid, Qasem bin Salam, with a connected chain (reaching) to the Prophet, Allah’s blessings be upon him and his Family, that he wrote to Wa’el bin Hajar al-Hadrami and his people: «From Muhammed, the Messenger of Allah, to the aqyal-ul-‘abahila from the people of Hadhramaut, (a beseech to you for the) establishment of prayer and fulfilment of alms tax. For a tay’a is a sheep, the tayma is for its owner and for suyoub is a fifth. There shall be no khalat, nor wirat, nor shinaq, nor shighar, and the one who performs ijba’ has certainly performed usury, and every intoxicant is forbidden.
