1ـ عِدَّةٌ مِنْ أَصْحَابِنَا عَنْ سَهْلِ بْنِ زِيَادٍ عَنِ الْحَسَنِ بْنِ مَحْبُوبٍ عَنِ ابْنِ رِئَابٍ عَنْ مُصَادِفٍ عَنْ أَبِي عَبْدِ الله (عَلَيْهِ السَّلاَم) فِي الْمَرْأَةِ تَحُجُّ عَنِ الرَّجُلِ الصَّرُورَةِ فَقَالَ إِنْ كَانَتْ قَدْ حَجَّتْ وَكَانَتْ مُسْلِمَةً فَقِيهَةً فَرُبَّ امْرَأَةٍ أَفْقَهُ مِنْ رَجُلٍ.


1. A number of our people have narrated from Sahl ibn Ziyad ibn Mahbub from ibn Ri’ab from Musadif who has said the following: “I once asked abu ‘ Abd Allah, ‘Alayhi al-Salam, about the case of an al-Sarurah (one who performs al- Hajj for the first time) woman who performs al-Hajj on behalf of an al-Sarurah man. He (the Imam) said, ‘It is sufficient if she is a Muslimah and faqihah (knowledgeable in matters of Shari‘ah); many women are more faqihah (knowledgeable in matters of Shari ‘ah) than men.’”

Ali ibn Ibrahim has narrated from his father from ibn abu ‘Umayr from Mu‘awiyah ibn ‘Ammar who has said the following: “I once asked abu ‘Abd Allah, ‘Alayhi al-Salam, if women can perform al-Hajj on behalf of men and men can perform al-Hajj on behalf of women. He (the Imam) said, ‘It is not harmful.’”

3ـ عَلِيُّ بْنُ إِبْرَاهِيمَ عَنْ أَبِيهِ عَنِ ابْنِ أَبِي عُمَيْرٍ عَنْ أَبِي أَيُّوبَ قَالَ قُلْتُ لأَبِي عَبْدِ الله (عَلَيْهِ السَّلاَم) امْرَأَةٌ مِنْ أَهْلِنَا مَاتَ أَخُوهَا فَأَوْصَى بِحَجَّةٍ وَقَدْ حَجَّتِ الْمَرْأَةُ فَقَالَتْ إِنْ صَلَحَ حَجَجْتُ أَنَا عَنْ أَخِي وَكُنْتُ أَنَا أَحَقَّ بِهَا مِنْ غَيْرِي فَقَالَ أَبُو عَبْدِ الله (عَلَيْهِ السَّلاَم) لا بَأْسَ بِأَنْ تَحُجَّ عَنْ أَخِيهَا وَإِنْ كَانَ لَهَا مَالٌ فَلْتَحُجَّ مِنْ مَالِهَا فَإِنَّهُ أَعْظَمُ لأَجْرِهَا.


3. Ali ibn Ibrahim has narrated from his father from ibn abu ‘Umayr from abu Ayyub who has said the following: “I once asked abu ‘Abd Allah, ‘Alayhi al-Salam, about the case of a woman from our people whose brother has died and has said in his will to perform al-Hajj on his behalf. The woman who has performed al-Hajj said that if it is proper, she wants to perform al-Hajj on behalf of her brother, because she has a greater degree of priority to him than others do. He (the Imam) said, ‘It is not harmful if she performs al-Hajj on behalf of her brother. If she has any assets, she should perform from her own assets; it is of greater degree of reward for her.’”
