1- عِدَّةٌ مِنْ أَصْحَابِنَا عَنْ أَحْمَدَ بْنِ مُحَمَّدِ بْنِ عِيسَى عَنِ ابْنِ مَحْبُوبٍ عَنْ عَبَّادِ بْنِ صُهَيْبٍ قَالَ سَمِعْتُ أَبَا عَبْدِ اللهِ (عَلَيْهِ السَّلام) يَقُولُ لا بَأْسَ بِالنَّظَرِ إِلَى رُءُوسِ أَهْلِ التِّهَامَةِ وَالأعْرَابِ وَأَهْلِ السَّوَادِ وَالْعُلُوجِ لأنَّهُمْ إِذَا نُهُوا لا يَنْتَهُونَ قَالَ وَالْمَجْنُونَةِ وَالْمَغْلُوبَةِ عَلَى عَقْلِهَا وَلا بَأْسَ بِالنَّظَرِ إِلَى شَعْرِهَا وَجَسَدِهَا مَا لَمْ يَتَعَمَّدْ ذَلِكَ.


1. A number of our people have narrated from Ahmad ibn Muhammad ibn ‘Isa from ibn Mahbub from ‘Abbad ibn Suhayb who has said the following: “I once heard abu ‘ Abd Allah, ‘Alayhi al-Salam, saying, ’It is not unlawful to look at the heads of the people of al-Tihamah and Arabs who live in black (tents) and al-‘Aluj (faithless uneducated people) because even if they are prohibited they do not listen.’ He (the Imam) said, ‘In the case of insane and those whose reason is defeated (very weak) it is not unlawful to look at their hairs and body as long as it is not an intentional look.’”
