Hadith #1

1ـ مُحَمَّدُ بْنُ يَحْيَى عَنْ أَحْمَدَ بْنِ مُحَمَّدٍ عَنِ ابْنِ مَحْبُوبٍ عَنْ هِشَامِ بْنِ سَالِمٍ عَنْ أَبِي بَصِيرٍ عَنْ أَحَدِهِمَا (عَلَيْهِما السَّلاَم) فِي رَجُلٍ أَعْطَى رَجُلاً دَرَاهِمَ يَحُجُّ بِهَا عَنْهُ حَجَّةً مُفْرَدَةً أَ يَجُوزُ لَهُ أَنْ يَتَمَتَّعَ بِالْعُمْرَةِ إِلَى الْحَجِّ فَقَالَ نَعَمْ إِنَّمَا خَالَفَهُ إِلَى الْفَضْلِ.

1. Muhammad ibn Yahya has narrated from Ahmad ibn Muhammad from ibn Mahbub from Hisham ibn Salim from abu Basir who has said the following: “I once asked one of the two Imam, (abu Ja’far or abu ‘Abd Allah), ‘Alayhim al-Salam, about a man who pays someone to perform al-Hajj in Ifrad manner (al-Hajj without al- £ Umrah) for him; if it is permissible to perform in al-Hajj al-Tamattu‘ (advantageous) manner. He (the Imam) said, ‘He has opposed him in what is more virtuous.’”



Hadith #2

2ـ عِدَّةٌ مِنْ أَصْحَابِنَا عَنْ سَهْلِ بْنِ زِيَادٍ عَنِ ابْنِ مَحْبُوبٍ عَنْ عَلِيِّ بْنِ رِئَابٍ عَنْ حَرِيزٍ قَالَ سَأَلْتُ أَبَا عَبْدِ الله (عَلَيْهِ السَّلاَم) عَنْ رَجُلٍ أَعْطَى رَجُلاً حَجَّةً يَحُجُّ بِهَا عَنْهُ مِنَ الْكُوفَةِ فَحَجَّ عَنْهُ مِنَ الْبَصْرَةِ قَالَ لا بَأْسَ إِذَا قَضَى جَمِيعَ مَنَاسِكِهِ فَقَدْ تَمَّ حَجُّهُ.

2. A number of our people have narrated from Sahl ibn Ziyad ibn Mahbub from ibn Ri’ab from Hariz who has said the following: “I once asked abu ‘Abd Allah, ‘Alayhi al-Salam, about a man who pays someone to perform al-Hajj for him from al-Kufah and he performs it from al-Basrah. He (the Imam) said, ‘It is not harmful; if he performs all acts, then his al-Hajj is complete.’”
