Back to book

1ـ عِدَّةٌ مِنْ أَصْحَابِنَا عَنْ أَحْمَدَ بْنِ مُحَمَّدٍ عَنْ عَلِيِّ بْنِ الْحَكَمِ عَنْ سُلَيْمَانَ الْفَرَّاءِ عَنْ مُحَمَّدِ بْنِ مُسْلِمٍ عَنْ أَبِي جَعْفَرٍ (عَلَيْهِ السَّلاَم) فِي الصَّائِمِ يَكْتَحِلُ قَالَ لا بَأْسَ بِهِ لَيْسَ بِطَعَامٍ وَلا شَرَابٍ. عَلِيُّ بْنُ إِبْرَاهِيمَ عَنْ أَبِيهِ عَنِ ابْنِ أَبِي عُمَيْرٍ عَنْ سُلَيْمَانَ الْفَرَّاءِ عَنْ غَيْرِ وَاحِدٍ عَنْ أَبِي جَعْفَرٍ (عَلَيْهِ السَّلاَم) مِثْلَهُ.


1. A number of our people have narrated from Ahmad ibn Muhammad from Ali ibn al-Hakam from Sulayman al-Farra’ from Muhammad ibn Muslim who has said the following: “About a fasting person’s use of kohl (special powder for eye treatment) abu Ja’far, ‘Alayhi al-Salam, has said that it is not harmful, because it is not a drink or food.’” Ali ibn Ibrahim has narrated from his father from ibn abu ‘Umayr from Sulayman al-Farra’ from more than one person who have narrated a similar Hadith from abu Ja’far, ‘Alayhi al-Salam.




2ـ مُحَمَّدُ بْنُ يَحْيَى عَنْ أَحْمَدَ بْنِ مُحَمَّدٍ عَنْ مُحَمَّدِ بْنِ خَالِدٍ عَنْ سَعْدِ بْنِ سَعْدٍ الأَشْعَرِيِّ عَنْ أَبِي الْحَسَنِ الرِّضَا (عَلَيْهِ السَّلاَم) قَالَ سَأَلْتُهُ عَمَّنْ يُصِيبُهُ الرَّمَدُ فِي شَهْرِ رَمَضَانَ هَلْ يَذُرُّ عَيْنَهُ بِالنَّهَارِ وَهُوَ صَائِمٌ قَالَ يَذُرُّهَا إِذَا أَفْطَرَ وَلا يَذُرُّهَا وَهُوَ صَائِمٌ.


2. Muhammad ibn Yahya has narrated from Ahmad ibn Muhammad from Muhammad ibn Khalid from Sa‘d ibn Sa‘d al-Ash’ariy who has said the following: “I once asked al-Rida’, ‘Alayhi al-Salam, about a man who suffers from an eye-ache in the month of Ramadan; if he can sprinkle his eyes during the day in the month of Ramadan when he is fasting. He (the Imam) said, ’He can do so when he is not fasting but he cannot do so when he is fasting.’”

3ـ مُحَمَّدُ بْنُ يَحْيَى عَنْ أَحْمَدَ بْنِ مُحَمَّدٍ عَنْ عُثْمَانَ بْنِ عِيسَى عَنْ سَمَاعَةَ بْنِ مِهْرَانَ قَالَ سَأَلْتُهُ عَنِ الْكُحْلِ لِلصَّائِمِ فَقَالَ إِذَا كَانَ كُحْلاً لَيْسَ فِيهِ مِسْكٌ وَلَيْسَ لَهُ طَعْمٌ فِي الْحَلْقِ فَلا بَأْسَ بِهِ.


3. Muhammad ibn Yahya has narrated from Ahmad ibn Muhammad from ‘Uthman ibn ‘Isa from Sama‘ah ibn Mehran who has said the following: “I once asked abu ‘ Abd Allah, ‘Alayhi al-Salam, about a man who applies kohl when he is fasting. He (the Imam) said, ’If it is a kind of kohl in which there is no musk and has no taste in the throat, then it is not harmful.’”
