24. The Case of One Who Finds His Debtor in al-Haram (the sacred area)

Back to book

1ـ عِدَّةٌ مِنْ أَصْحَابِنَا عَنْ أَحْمَدَ بْنِ مُحَمَّدٍ عَنْ شَاذَانَ بْنِ الْخَلِيلِ أَبِي الْفَضْلِ عَنْ سَمَاعَةَ بْنِ مِهْرَانَ عَنْ أَبِي عَبْدِ الله (عَلَيْهِ السَّلاَم) قَالَ سَأَلْتُهُ عَنْ رَجُلٍ لِي عَلَيْهِ مَالٌ فَغَابَ عَنِّي زَمَاناً فَرَأَيْتُهُ يَطُوفُ حَوْلَ الْكَعْبَةِ أَ فَأَتَقَاضَاهُ مَالِي قَالَ لا لا تُسَلِّمْ عَلَيْهِ وَلا تُرَوِّعْهُ حَتَّى يَخْرُجَ مِنَ الْحَرَمِ.


1. A number of our people have narrated from Ahmad ibn Muhammad from Shadhan ibn al-Khalil abu al-Fadl from Sama‘ah ibn Mehran who has said the following: “I once asked abu ‘ Abd Allah, ‘Alayhi al-Salam, about a man who owed to me a certain amount of goods and he was absent from me for a certain time. I saw him doing Tawaf around al-Ka‘bah. Can I ask him for payment? He (the Imam) said, ‘No, do not offer him greeting of peace and do not frighten him until he gets out of al-Haram (the sacred area).’”
