2- مُحَمَّدُ بْنُ أَبِي عُمَيْرٍ عَنْ هِشَامِ بْنِ سَالِمٍ عَنْ أَبِي عَبْدِ اللهِ (عَلَيْهِ السَّلام) قَالَ لَمَّا خَطَبَ إِلَيْهِ قَالَ لَهُ أَمِيرُ الْمُؤْمِنِينَ إِنَّهَا صَبِيَّةٌ قَالَ فَلَقِيَ الْعَبَّاسَ فَقَالَ لَهُ مَإ؛ لِي أَبِي بَأْسٌ قَالَ وَمَا ذَاكَ قَالَ خَطَبْتُ إِلَى ابْنِ أَخِيكَ فَرَدَّنِي أَمَا وَاللهِ لأعَوِّرَنَّ زَمْزَمَ وَلا أَدَعُ لَكُمْ مَكْرُمَةً إِلا هَدَمْتُهَا وَلأقِيمَنَّ عَلَيْهِ شَاهِدَيْنِ بِأَنَّهُ سَرَقَ وَلأقْطَعَنَّ يَمِينَهُ فَأَتَاهُ الْعَبَّاسُ فَأَخْبَرَهُ وَسَأَلَهُ أَنْ يَجْعَلَ الأمْرَ إِلَيْهِ فَجَعَلَهُ إِلَيْهِ.


2. Muhammad ibn abu ‘Umayr has narrated from Hisham ibn Salim who has said the following: “Abu ‘Abd Allah, ‘Alayhi al-Salam, has said, ‘When he proposed marriage with ‘Umm Kulthum, ’Amir al-Mu’minin, ‘Alayhi al-Salam, said, ‘She is yet just a child.’ He (the Imam) has said that he saw al-‘Abbas and asked, ‘What is wrong with me, is there something wrong with me?’ He al-‘Abbas asked, ‘What is the matter?’ He replied saying, ‘I proposed marriage before the son of your brother for his daughter but he rejected my proposal. I swear by Allah, I will shut down Zamzam, leave no honor for you without being destroyed; I will prove him guilty of theft through two witnesses and cut off his right hand.’ Al- ‘Abbas went to him (the Imam) and informed him of what he had said and asked him (the Imam) to authorize him to settle the matter and he (the Imam) agreed.’”
