Back to book

1ـ عَلِيُّ بْنُ إِبْرَاهِيمَ عَنْ أَبِيهِ عَنِ ابْنِ أَبِي عُمَيْرٍ عَنْ حَفْصِ بْنِ الْبَخْتَرِيِّ وَهِشَامِ بْنِ سَالِمٍ وَمُعَاوِيَةَ بْنِ عَمَّارٍ وَغَيْرِهِمْ عَنْ أَبِي عَبْدِ الله (عَلَيْهِ السَّلاَم) قَالَ لَوْ أَنَّ النَّاسَ تَرَكُوا الْحَجَّ لَكَانَ عَلَى الْوَالِي أَنْ يُجْبِرَهُمْ عَلَى ذَلِكَ وَعَلَى الْمُقَامِ عِنْدَهُ وَلَوْ تَرَكُوا زِيَارَةَ النَّبِيِّ (صلَّى اللهُ عَلَيْهِ وَآلِه) لَكَانَ عَلَى الْوَالِي أَنْ يُجْبِرَهُمْ عَلَى ذَلِكَ وَعَلَى الْمُقَامِ عِنْدَهُ فَإِنْ لَمْ يَكُنْ لَهُمْ أَمْوَالٌ أَنْفَقَ عَلَيْهِمْ مِنْ بَيْتِ مَالِ الْمُسْلِمِينَ.


1. Ali ibn Ibrahim has narrated from his father from ibn abu ‘Umayr from Hafs af-Bakhtariy and Hisham ibn Salim and Mu‘awiyah ibn ‘Ammar and others who has said the following: “Abu ‘Abd Allah, ‘Alayhi al-Salam, has said that if people neglect performing al-Hajj, the authorities will force them to perform al-Hajj and to reside therein. If people neglect visiting the Holy Prophet, O Allah, grant compensation to Muhammad and his family worthy of their services to Your cause, the authorities will force them to do so and reside there. If they will not be able to bear the expenses, the authorities will pay for them from the public treasury.”

2ـ عِدَّةٌ مِنْ أَصْحَابِنَا عَنْ أَحْمَدَ بْنِ مُحَمَّدٍ عَنِ الْحُسَيْنِ بْنِ سَعِيدٍ عَنِ النَّضْرِ بْنِ سُوَيْدٍ عَنْ عَبْدِ الله بْنِ سِنَانٍ عَنْ أَبِي عَبْدِ الله (عَلَيْهِ السَّلاَم) قَالَ لَوْ عَطَّلَ النَّاسُ الْحَجَّ لَوَجَبَ عَلَى الإِمَامِ أَنْ يُجْبِرَهُمْ عَلَى الْحَجِّ إِنْ شَاءُوا وَإِنْ أَبَوْا فَإِنَّ هَذَا الْبَيْتَ إِنَّمَا وُضِعَ لِلْحَجِّ.


2. A number of our people have narrated from Ahmad ibn Muhammad from al-Husayn ibn Sa‘id from al-Nadr ibn Suwayd from ‘Abd Allah ibn Sinan who has said the following: “If people neglect al-Hajj it becomes obligatory for the Imam to force them to perform al-Hajj whether they agree or disagree; this House is established for al-Hajj.”
