Back to book

1- عَلِيُّ بْنُ إِبْرَاهِيمَ عَنْ أَبِيهِ عَنِ النَّوْفَلِيِّ عَنِ السَّكُونِيِّ عَنْ أَبِي عَبْدِ اللهِ (عَلَيْهِ السَّلام) قَالَ قَالَ أَمِيرُ الْمُؤْمِنِينَ (صَلَّى اللهُ عَلَيْهِ وَآلِه) إِيَّاكُمْ وَتَزْوِيجَ الْحَمْقَاءِ فَإِنَّ صُحْبَتَهَا بَلاءٌ وَوُلْدَهَا ضِيَاعٌ.


1. Ali ibn Ibrahim has narrated from his father from af-Nawfafiy from af-Sakuniy who has said the following: “Abu ‘ Abd Allah, ‘Alayhi al-Salam, has said that ’Amir al-Mu’minin has said, ’Beware of marriage with dimwitted ones, living with her is a tragedy and her children are a loss.’”

2- عِدَّةٌ مِنْ أَصْحَابِنَا عَنْ أَحْمَدَ بْنِ أَبِي عَبْدِ اللهِ عَنْ أَبِيهِ عَمَّنْ حَدَّثَهُ عَنْ أَبِي عَبْدِ اللهِ (عَلَيْهِ السَّلام) قَالَ زَوِّجُوا الأحْمَقَ وَلا تُزَوِّجُوا الْحَمْقَاءَ فَإِنَّ الأحْمَقَ يَنْجُبُ وَالْحَمْقَاءَ لا تَنْجُبُ.


2. A number of our people have narrated from Ahmad ibn abu ‘Abd Allah from his father from those who narrated to him who has said the following: “Abu ’Abd Allah, ‘Alayhi al-Salam, has said, ‘You can give in marriage to a dimwitted man but do not marry a dimwitted woman; a dimwitted man can have children (healthy ones) but a dimwitted woman cannot.”’

3- مُحَمَّدُ بْنُ يَحْيَى عَنْ أَحْمَدَ بْنِ مُحَمَّدٍ عَنِ ابْنِ مَحْبُوبٍ عَنْ أَبِي أَيُّوبَ الْخَزَّازِ عَنْ مُحَمَّدِ بْنِ مُسْلِمٍ عَنْ أَبِي جَعْفَرٍ (عَلَيْهِ السَّلام) قَالَ سَأَلَهُ بَعْضُ أَصْحَابِنَا عَنِ الرَّجُلِ الْمُسْلِمِ تُعْجِبُهُ الْمَرْأَةُ الْحَسْنَاءُ أَيَصْلُحُ لَهُ أَنْ يَتَزَوَّجَهَا وَهِيَ مَجْنُونَةٌ قَالَ لا وَلَكِنْ إِنْ كَانَتْ عِنْدَهُ أَمَةٌ مَجْنُونَةٌ فَلا بَأْسَ بِأَنْ يَطَأَهَا وَلا يَطْلُبَ وَلَدَهَا.


3. Muhammad ibn Yahya has narrated from Ahmad ibn Muhammad from ibn Mahbub abu Ayyub al-Khazzaz from Muhammad ibn Muslim who has said the following: “Certain persons of our people once asked abu Ja’far, ‘Alayhi al-Salam, about the case of a Muslim man who likes a beautiful woman; if he can marry her and she is insane. He (the Imam) said, ’No, however, if he has an insane slave-girl he can go to bed with her but must not seek her children (he must use contraceptives).”’
