Hadith #1

1ـ عَلِيُّ بْنُ إِبْرَاهِيمَ عَنْ أَبِيهِ عَنِ ابْنِ أَبِي عُمَيْرٍ عَنْ وَهْبِ بْنِ عَبْدِ رَبِّهِ قَالَ قُلْتُ لأَبِي عَبْدِ الله (عَلَيْهِ السَّلاَم) أَ يَحُجُّ الرَّجُلُ عَنِ النَّاصِبِ فَقَالَ لا فَقُلْتُ فَإِنْ كَانَ أَبِي قَالَ فَإِنْ كَانَ أَبَاكَ فَنَعَمْ.

1. Ali ibn Ibrahim has narrated from his father from ibn abu ‘Umayr from Wahab ibn ‘ Abd Rabbihi who has said the following: “I once asked abu ‘Abd Allah, ‘Alayhi al-Salam, if al-Hajj can be performed on behalf of one hostile to ’A’immah. He (the Imam) said, ‘No, it cannot be performed.’ I then asked, ‘Even if he is my father?’ He (the Imam) said, ‘If he is your father it is permissible.’”



Hadith #2

2ـ عِدَّةٌ مِنْ أَصْحَابِنَا عَنْ سَهْلِ بْنِ زِيَادٍ عَنْ عَلِيِّ بْنِ مَهْزِيَارَ قَالَ كَتَبْتُ إِلَيْهِ الرَّجُلُ يَحُجُّ عَنِ النَّاصِبِ هَلْ عَلَيْهِ إِثْمٌ إِذَا حَجَّ عَنِ النَّاصِبِ وَهَلْ يَنْفَعُ ذَلِكَ النَّاصِبَ أَمْ لا فَكَتَبَ لا يَحُجَّ عَنِ النَّاصِبِ وَلا يَحُجَّ بِهِ.

2. A number of our people have narrated from Sahl ibn Ziyad from Ali ibn Mahziyar from who has said the following: “I once wrote to him (the Imam) and asked, ‘If one performs al-Hajj for one hostile to ’A’immah, is it a sin and does it benefit the person hostile to ’A’immah, ‘Alayhim al-Salam ? He (the Imam) said, ‘al- Hajj is not performed for one hostile to ’A’immah and al-Hajj is not performed with him.’”
