1ـ عَلِيُّ بْنُ إِبْرَاهِيمَ عَنْ أَبِيهِ عَنْ حَمَّادٍ عَنْ حَرِيزٍ عَنْ زُرَارَةَ وَمُحَمَّدِ بْنِ مُسْلِمٍ وَأَبِي بَصِيرٍ وَبُرَيْدِ بْنِ مُعَاوِيَةَ الْعِجْلِيِّ وَفُضَيْلِ بْنِ يَسَارٍ عَنْ أَبِي جَعْفَرٍ وَأَبِي عَبْدِ الله (عَلَيْهِ الْسَّلام) قَالاَ فَرَضَ الله الزَّكَاةَ مَعَ الصَّلاَةِ فِي الأمْوَالِ وَسَنَّهَا رَسُولُ الله (صلّى اللهُ عَلَيْهِ وَآلِه) فِي تِسْعَةِ أَشْيَاءَ وَعَفَا رَسُولُ الله عَمَّا سِوَاهُنَّ فِي الذَّهَبِ وَالْفِضَّةِ وَالإِبِلِ وَالْبَقَرِ وَالْغَنَمِ وَالْحِنْطَةِ وَالشَّعِيرِ وَالتَّمْرِ وَالزَّبِيبِ وَعَفَا عَمَّا سِوَى ذَلِكَ.


1. Ali ibn Ibrahim has narrated from his father from Hammad from Hariz Zurarah and Muhammad, abu Basir, Burayd ibn Mu‘awiyah al-‘Ijliy and Fudayl ibn Yasar who has said the following: “Abu Ja‘far, and abu ’Abd Allah, ‘Alayhim al-Salam, have said, ‘Allah made Zakat, just as Salah (prayer) is, obligatory on wealth and the Messenger of Allah established it as a Sunnah (noble tradition) on six categories of wealth. The Messenger of Allah exempted the rest of the categories of wealth from Zakat. It is due on gold, silver, camel, cow, sheep, wheat, barley, dates and raisins. Other categories of wealth are exempt.”’

2ـ عَلِيُّ بْنُ إِبْرَاهِيمَ عَنْ أَبِيهِ عَنْ إِسْمَاعِيلَ بْنِ مَرَّارٍ عَنْ يُونُسَ عَنْ عَبْدِ الله بْنِ مُسْكَانَ عَنْ أَبِي بَكْرٍ الْحَضْرَمِيِّ عَنْ أَبِي عَبْدِ الله (عَلَيْهِ الْسَّلام) قَالَ وَضَعَ رَسُولُ الله (صلّى اللهُ عَلَيْهِ وَآلِه) الزَّكَاةَ عَلَى تِسْعَةِ أَشْيَاءَ الْحِنْطَةِ وَالشَّعِيرِ وَالتَّمْرِ وَالزَّبِيبِ وَالذَّهَبِ وَالْفِضَّةِ وَالإِبِلِ وَالْبَقَرِ وَالْغَنَمِ وَعَفَا عَمَّا سِوَى ذَلِكَ قَالَ يُونُسُ مَعْنَى قَوْلِهِ إِنَّ الزَّكَاةَ فِي تِسْعَةِ أَشْيَاءَ وَعَفَا عَمَّا سِوَى ذَلِكَ إِنَّمَا كَانَ ذَلِكَ فِي أَوَّلِ النُّبُوَّةِ كَمَا كَانَتِ الصَّلاَةُ رَكْعَتَيْنِ ثُمَّ زَادَ رَسُولُ الله (صلّى اللهُ عَلَيْهِ وَآلِه) فِيهَا سَبْعَ رَكَعَاتٍ وَكَذَلِكَ الزَّكَاةُ وَضَعَهَا وَسَنَّهَا فِي أَوَّلِ نُبُوَّتِهِ عَلَى تِسْعَةِ أَشْيَاءَ ثُمَّ وَضَعَهَا عَلَى جَمِيعِ الْحُبُوبِ.


2. Ali ibn Ibrahim has narrated from his father from ’Isma’il ibn Marrar from Yunus from ‘Abd Allah ibn Muskan from abu Bakr al- Hadramiy who has said the following: “Abu ‘Abd Allah, ‘Alayhi al-Salam, has said, ‘The Messenger of Allah made Zakat obligatory on nine categories of wealth wheat, barley, dates, raisins, gold, silver, camel, cows and sheep. Other kinds of wealth are exempt.’” “Yunus has said that the meaning of his words ‘Zakat is on nine things and other kinds are exempt,’ was applicable at the time of the beginning of his prophetic mission like Salah (prayer) which was of two Rak‘at in the beginning of his mission. Then the Messenger of Allah increased in it seven more Rak‘at. So also is Zakat. In the beginning of his mission it was due on nine things, then he made it due on all kinds of grains.”
