Hadith #1

حدثنا أبي - رحمه الله - قال حدثنا علي بن إبراهيم بن هاشم، عن أبيه، عن محمد بن أبي عمير، عن عمر بن أذينة، عن زرارة قال: سألت أبا جعفر عليه السلام عن قول الله عز وجل " حنفاء لله غير مشركين به " وقلت: ما الحنفية؟ قال: هي الفطرة.

1. We were told by my father, may Allah grant him mercy, that he said: We were told by Ali bin Ibrahim bin Hashim, from his father, from Muhammed bin Abi ‘Umayr, from Umar bin Udhayna, from Zurara, that he said: I asked Abu Ja’far, peace be upon him, about the saying of Allah, Exalted and Glorious is He: «Turning (in orthodoxy) to Allah, not associating (anything) with Him» (22:31) and I said: What is orthodoxy? He said: It is innateness.
