1ـ عَلِيُّ بْنُ إِبْرَاهِيمَ عَنْ أَبِيهِ عَنْ حَمَّادِ بْنِ عِيسَى عَنْ إِبْرَاهِيمَ بْنِ عُمَرَ قَالَ قَالَ أَبُو عَبْدِ الله (عَلَيْهِ السَّلاَم) اللُّقَطَةُ لُقَطَتَانِ لُقَطَةُ الْحَرَمِ تُعَرِّفُ سَنَةً فَإِنْ وَجَدْتَ صَاحِبَهَا وَإِلاَّ تَصَدَّقْتَ بِهَا وَلُقَطَةُ غَيْرِهَا تُعَرِّفُ سَنَةً فَإِنْ جَاءَ صَاحِبُهَا وَإِلاَّ فَهِيَ كَسَبِيلِ مَالِكَ.


1. Ali ibn Ibrahim has narrated from his father from Hammad ibn ‘Isa from Ibrahim ibn ‘Umar who has said the following: “Abu ‘ Abd Allah, ‘Alayhi al-Salam, has said, ’Findings are of two kinds. The findings, in al-Haram (the sacred area), are publicized for one year. If the owner is found, it is delivered to him; otherwise, it is given in charity. The findings, in non-al-Haram (the sacred area), are publicized for one year. If the owner comes it is his; otherwise, it is like one’s own belongings.’”

2ـ عَلِيُّ بْنُ إِبْرَاهِيمَ عَنْ أَبِيهِ عَنْ إِسْمَاعِيلَ بْنِ مَرَّارٍ عَنْ يُونُسَ عَنْ فُضَيْلِ بْنِ يَسَارٍ قَالَ سَأَلْتُ أَبَا عَبْدِ الله (عَلَيْهِ السَّلاَم) عَنِ الرَّجُلِ يَجِدُ اللُّقَطَةَ فِي الْحَرَمِ قَالَ لا يَمَسَّهَا وَأَمَّا أَنْتَ فَلا بَأْسَ لأَنَّكَ تُعَرِّفُهَا.


2. Ali ibn Ibrahim has narrated from his father from ‘Isma‘il ibn Marrar from Yunus from Fudayl ibn Yasar who has said the following: “I once asked abu ‘Abd Allah, ‘Alayhi al-Salam, about a man who finds something in al-Haram (the sacred area). He (the Imam) said, ‘He must not touch it. However, in your case it is not harmful because you define and publicize it.’”

Muhammad ibn Yahya has narrated from Ahmad ibn Muhammad from ibn abu ‘Umayr from Fudayl ibn Ghazwan who has said the following: “I once was in the presence of abu ‘Abd Allah, ‘Alayhi al-Salam, when al-Tayyar said, ‘I found one dinar in Tawaf area. The writing marks on it were wiped out. He (the Imam) said, ‘It is his property.’”

4ـ مُحَمَّدُ بْنُ يَحْيَى عَنْ مُحَمَّدِ بْنِ أَحْمَدَ عَنْ مُحَمَّدِ بْنِ عِيسَى عَنْ مُحَمَّدِ بْنِ رَجَاءٍ الأَرَّجَانِيِّ قَالَ كَتَبْتُ إِلَى الطَّيِّبِ (عَلَيْهِ السَّلاَم) أَنِّي كُنْتُ فِي الْمَسْجِدِ الْحَرَامِ فَرَأَيْتُ دِينَاراً فَأَهْوَيْتُ إِلَيْهِ لآِخُذَهُ فَإِذَا أَنَا بِآخَرَ ثُمَّ بَحَثْتُ الْحَصَى فَإِذَا أَنَا بِثَالِثٍ فَأَخَذْتُهَا فَعَرَّفْتُهَا فَلَمْ يَعْرِفْهَا أَحَدٌ فَمَا تَرَى فِي ذَلِكَ فَكَتَبَ فَهِمْتُ مَا ذَكَرْتَ مِنْ أَمْرِ الدَّنَانِيرِ فَإِنْ كُنْتَ مُحْتَاجاً فَتَصَدَّقْ بِثُلُثِهَا وَإِنْ كُنْتَ غَنِيّاً فَتَصَدَّقْ بِالْكُلِّ.


4. Muhammad ibn Yahya has narrated from Ahmad ibn Muhammad from Muhammad ibn ‘Isa from Muhammad ibn Raja’ al-Arjaniy who has said the following: “Once I wrote to al-Tayyib, ‘Alayhi al-Salam, this, ‘I was in Masjid al-Haram and I saw a dinar. I bent down to take it and there was another dinar. I searched in the pebbles and found a third one. I took them and publicized but no one knows them. What is your instruction? He (the Imam) wrote back to me, ‘I understood the case of dinars. If you are needy give one-third of it in charity, if you are not needy give all of them in charity.’”
