1ـ الْحُسَيْنُ بْنُ مُحَمَّدٍ عَنْ مُعَلَّى بْنِ مُحَمَّدٍ عَمَّنْ حَدَّثَهُ عَنْ حَمَّادِ بْنِ عُثْمَانَ قَالَ سَأَلْتُ أَبَا عَبْدِ الله (عَلَيْهِ السَّلاَم) عَنْ أَدْنَى مَا يُجْزِئُ مِنْ أَسْنَانِ الْغَنَمِ فِي الْهَدْيِ فَقَالَ الْجَذَعُ مِنَ الضَّأْنِ قُلْتُ فَالْمَعْزُ قَالَ لا يُجْزِئُ الْجَذَعُ مِنَ الْمَعْزِ قُلْتُ وَلِمَ قَالَ لأَنَّ الْجَذَعَ مِنَ الضَّأْنِ يَلْقَحُ وَالْجَذَعُ مِنَ الْمَعْزِ لا يَلْقَحُ.


1. Al-Husayn ibn Muhammad has narrated from Mu‘alla’ ibn Muhammad from those who narrated to him from Hammad ibn ‘Uthaman who has said the foiiowing: “I once asked abu ‘ Abd Allah, ‘Alayhi al-Salam, about the minimum age required for an offering of sheep. He (the Imam) said, ‘It is al-Jadha‘ (young goat or sheep which is in the second year of its life) of sheep.’ I then asked about goat, and he (the Imam) said, ‘Young goat is not sufficient.’ I then asked why young sheep is sufficient and a young goat is not sufficient? He (the Imam) said, ‘It is because al- Jadha’ of sheep is capable of impregnating and that of goat does not have such capability.’”

He (the Imam) said, ‘In the case of cows age does not matter for slaughtering as offering, but camels must not be less than two years old and above.’”

He (the Imam) said, ‘No, it is not acceptable unless no other offering is available.’ He (the Imam) said, ‘A young sheep is acceptable but not a young goat.’ I asked about castrated and ewe. He (the Imam) said, ‘An injured is more preferred than ewe, but if it is a castrated one then an ewe is more preferred.’”

9. Ali ibn Ibrahim has narrated from his father from ibn abu ‘Umayr from Mu‘awiyah ibn ‘Ammar who has said the following: “This is about a man who buys an offering which is defective such as blindness, and so on. Abu ‘Abd Allah, ‘Alayhi al-Salam, has said, ‘If he has paid in cash it is sufficient for him. If he has not paid in cash he can return it and buy another.’ Abu ‘Abd Allah, ‘Alayhi al-Salam, has said, ‘Buy a fatty male for al-Hajj al-Tamattu‘ (advantageous); if you cannot, then find a mawju’ (cow); if you cannot find it then a male goat, if you do not find, then an ewe, if you cannot find then buy what is available for an offering.’ He (the Imam) said, ‘For al-Hajj al-Tamattu‘ (advantageous) young sheep is sufficient, a young goat is not sufficient.’ About a man who bought a sheep and wanted to buy one more fat, abu ‘Abd Allah, ‘Alayhi al-Salam, has said, ‘He can buy it but he sells the first one.’ I do not know if he (the Imam) spoke of sheep or cow.”

17. Ali ibn Ibrahim has narrated from his father from Ibrahim ibn Muhammad from al-Sullamiy from Dawud al-Riqqiy who has said the following: “Certain persons of al-Khawarij asked me about this verse of al-Quran: ‘Of two sheep and of two goats, ask which one is made unlawful? (Is it) male or female? (6:142) (What is the meaning of) camels two and of cows two?’ (6:143) ‘What Allah has made lawful and what has He made unlawful?’ I did not have any answer. I went to see abu ‘Abd Allah, ‘Alayhi al-Salam, when I was there for al- Hajj. I informed him (the Imam) of the story and he (the Imam) said, ‘Allah, most Majestic, most Glorious, for sacrifice in Mina’, has made domesticated sheep and goats lawful. He has made the wild ones unlawful, and His words, ‘Of camels two and of cows two’, means that Allah, most Blessed, most High, has made al-Trab camels lawful for offering as sacrifice and has made unlawful what is al- Bukhatiy. He has made domesticated cows lawful for offering as sacrifice and the wild ones unlawful.’ I returned to the man and informed him of the answer. He said, ‘This is something which camel has carried on its back from al-Hijaz.’”
