Maʿānī al-ʾAkhbār > The meaning of the fast-breaking faster
Hadith #1

حدثنا أبو نصر محمد بن أحمد بن تميم السرخسي الفقيه بسرخس، قال: حدثنا أبو لبيد محمد بن إدريس الشامي، قال: حدثنا هاشم بن عبد العزيز المحرمي ، قال: حدثنا عبد الرزاق، عن معمر، عن الجريري، عن أبي العلاء بن الشخير، عن نعيم بن قعنب، قال: أتيت الربذة ألتمس أبا ذر، فقالت لي امرأته: ذهب يمتهن . قال: فإذا أبو ذر قد أقبل يقود بعيرين قد قطر أحدهما بذنب الاخر قد علق في عنق كل واحد منهما قربة، قال: فقمت فسلمت عليه ثم جلست فدخل منزله وكلم امرأته بشئ فقال: أف أما تزيدين على ما قال رسول الله صلى الله عليه وآله: " إنما المرأة كالضلع إن أقمتها كسرتها وفيها بلغه " ثم جاء بصحفة فيها مثل القطاة فقال: كل فإني صائم، ثم قام فصلى ركعتين ثم جاء فأكل. قال: فقلت: سبحان الله من ظننت أن يكذبني من الناس فلم أظن أنك تكذبني. قال: وما ذاك؟ قلت إنك قلت لي إنك صائم ثم جئت فأكلت! قال: وأنا الآن أقوله، إني صمت من هذا الشهر ثلاثا فوجب لي صومه وحل لي فطره.

1. We were told by Abu Nasr, Muhammed bin Ahmad bin Tamim al-Sarakhsi, the jurist, in Sarakhs, that he said: We were told by Abu Lubaid, Muhammedbin Idrees al-Shami, that he said: We were told by Hashim bin Abdul-Aziz al-Muharrami, that he said: We were told by Abdul-Razzaq, from Mu’ammar, from al-Jareeri, from Abu’l-‘Alaa’ bin Saheer, from Na’eem bin Qa’nab, that he said: I came to Al-Rabadha, seeking Abu Dharr, and his woman said to me: He went to seek a profession. He said: Suddenly, Abu Dharr approached whilst leading two camels, of which one had aligned to the tail of the other, and he had hanged a waterskin on the neck of each one of them. He said: Then I stood up and sent peace upon him, and then I sat down, and he entered his home and spoke something to his woman, and then said: Uff! Will you not add to what Allah’s Messenger, Allah’s blessings be upon him and his Family: «A woman is only like a rib; if you raise it, you break it, and in her is adequacy»? Then he came with a plate that had the like of a sand grouse, and he said: Eat, for I am fasting. Then he stood up and prayed two rak’at [1], and then he came and ate. He said: So I said: Glory be to Allah, as I had assumed that people would lie to me, I did not assume that you will lie to me. He said: And what is that? I said: You said to me that you are fasting, and then you came and ate. He said: And I am now saying the same. I fasted three (days) of this month, hence, its (reward for) fasting has been written to me, and it is permissible for me to break the fast during it.
