Back to book

1ـ عِدَّةٌ مِنْ أَصْحَابِنَا عَنْ أَحْمَدَ بْنِ مُحَمَّدٍ وَسَهْلِ بْنِ زِيَادٍ جَمِيعاً عَنْ أَحْمَدَ بْنِ مُحَمَّدِ بْنِ أَبِي نَصْرٍ عَنْ مُحَمَّدِ بْنِ عَبْدِ الله الْقُمِّيِّ قَالَ سَأَلْتُ أَبَا الْحَسَنِ الرِّضَا (عَلَيْهِ السَّلاَم) عَنِ الرَّجُلِ يُعْطَى الْحَجَّةَ يَحُجُّ بِهَا وَيُوَسِّعُ عَلَى نَفْسِهِ فَيَفْضُلُ مِنْهَا أَ يَرُدُّهَا عَلَيْهِ قَالَ لا هِيَ لَهُ.


1. A number of our people have narrated from Ahmad ibn Muhammad from Sahl ibn Ziyad all from Ahmad ibn Muhammad from ibn abu Nasr from Muhammad ibn ‘Abd Allah al-Qummiy who has said the following: “I once asked abu al-Hassan, al-Rida’, ‘Alayhi al-Salam, about a man who is paid for al-Hajj and he spends openhandedly, but still a certain amount remains with him; if he is required to return it to the payer. He (the Imam) said, ‘No, it belongs to him.’”

2ـ مُحَمَّدُ بْنُ يَحْيَى عَنْ مُحَمَّدِ بْنِ أَحْمَدَ عَنْ أَحْمَدَ بْنِ الْحَسَنِ عَنْ عَمْرِو بْنِ سَعِيدٍ عَنْ مُصَدِّقِ بْنِ صَدَقَةَ عَنْ عَمَّارِ بْنِ مُوسَى السَّابَاطِيِّ عَنْ أَبِي عَبْدِ الله (عَلَيْهِ السَّلاَم) قَالَ سَأَلْتُهُ عَنِ الرَّجُلِ يَأْخُذُ الدَّرَاهِمَ لِيَحُجَّ بِهَا عَنْ رَجُلٍ هَلْ يَجُوزُ لَهُ أَنْ يُنْفِقَ مِنْهَا فِي غَيْرِ الْحَجِّ قَالَ إِذَا ضَمِنَ الْحَجَّ فَالدَّرَاهِمُ لَهُ يَصْنَعُ بِهَا مَا أَحَبَّ وَعَلَيْهِ حَجَّةٌ.


2. Muhammad ibn Yahya has narrated from Ahmad ibn Muhammad from Ahmad ibn al-Hassan from ‘Amr ibn Sa‘id from Musaddiq ibn Sadaqah from ‘Ammar ibn Musa al-Sabatiy who has said the following: “I once asked abu ‘Abd Allah, ‘Alayhi al-Salam, about a man who is paid for performing al-Hajj for another person; if he can spend from such amount for other things. He (the Imam) said, ‘If he guarantees al-Hajj, dirhams belong to him with which he can do whatever he wants, but he owes al- Hajj.’”

3ـ عَلِيُّ بْنُ إِبْرَاهِيمَ عَنْ أَبِيهِ عَنِ ابْنِ أَبِي عُمَيْرٍ عَنْ حَمَّادِ بْنِ عُثْمَانَ قَالَ بَعَثَنِي عُمَرُ بْنُ يَزِيدَ إِلَى أَبِي جَعْفَرٍ الأَحْوَلِ بِدَرَاهِمَ وَقَالَ قُلْ لَهُ إِنْ أَرَادَ أَنْ يَحُجَّ بِهَا فَلْيَحُجَّ وَإِنْ أَرَادَ أَنْ يُنْفِقَهَا فَلْيُنْفِقْهَا قَالَ فَأَنْفَقَهَا وَلَمْ يَحُجَّ قَالَ حَمَّادٌ فَذَكَرَ ذَلِكَ أَصْحَابُنَا لأَبِي عَبْدِ الله (عَلَيْهِ السَّلاَم) فَقَالَ وَجَدْتُمُ الشَّيْخَ فَقِيهاً.


3. Ali ibn Ibrahim has narrated from his father from ibn abu ‘Umayr from Hammad ibn ‘Uthman who has said the following: “‘Umar ibn Yazid sent me to abu Ja’far al-Ahwal with a certain amount of dirham and asked me to tell him to perform al-Hajj with it if he wanted, or if he wanted to benefit in other ways, he can do so. He spent it for other things and did not perform al-Hajj . Certain persons of our people mentioned it to abu ‘Abd Allah, ‘Alayhi al-Salam, and he (the Imam) said, ‘You have found a faqih (knowledgeable in matters of Shari ‘ah) shaykh.’”
