عَلِيُّ بْنُ إِبْرَاهِيمَ عَنْ أَبِيهِ عَنِ الْحَسَنِ بْنِ الْحُسَيْنِ الْفَارِسِيِّ عَنْ سُلَيْمَانَ بْنِ حَفْصٍ الْبَصْرِيِّ عَنْ أَبِي عَبْدِ اللَّهِ ( عليه السلام ) قَالَ قَالَ رَسُولُ اللَّهِ ( صلى الله عليه وآله ) الضَّيْفُ يُلْطَفُ لَيْلَتَيْنِ فَإِذَا كَانَتْ لَيْلَةُ الثَّالِثَةِ فَهُوَ مِنْ أَهْلِ الْبَيْتِ يَأْكُلُ مَا أَدْرَكَ .


1. Ali ibn Ibrahim has narrated from his father from al-Hassan ibn af-Husayn al-Farsi from Sulayman ibn Hafs al-Basriy who has said the following: “Abu ‘ Abd Allah, ‘Alayhi al-Salam, has stated this Hadith. ‘The Messenger of Allah, O Allah, grant compensation to Muhammad and his family worthy of their services to Your cause, has said, “Special treatment should be offered to a guest for the two nights; but in the third night he is of the people of the family, and he eats what he receives.’””

الْحُسَيْنُ بْنُ مُحَمَّدٍ عَنْ مُعَلَّى بْنِ مُحَمَّدٍ عَنْ وَاصِلٍ عَنْ عَبْدِ اللَّهِ بْنِ سِنَانٍ عَنْ أَبِي عَبْدِ اللَّهِ ( عليه السلام ) قَالَ قَالَ رَسُولُ اللَّهِ ( صلى الله عليه وآله ) الضِّيَافَةُ أَوَّلَ يَوْمٍ وَ الثَّانِيَ وَ الثَّالِثَ وَ مَا بَعْدَ ذَلِكَ فَإِنَّهَا صَدَقَةٌ تُصُدِّقَ بِهَا عَلَيْهِقَالَ ثُمَّ قَالَ ( صلى الله عليه وآله ) لَا يَنْزِلُ أَحَدُكُمْ عَلَى أَخِيهِ حَتَّى يُوثِمَهُ مَعَهُ قِيلَ يَا رَسُولَ اللَّهِ كَيْفَ يُوثِمُهُ قَالَ حَتَّى لَا يَكُونَ عِنْدَهُ مَا يُنْفِقُ عَلَيْهِ .


2. AI-Husayn ibn Muhammad has narrated from Mu‘alla’ ibn Muhammad, from Wasil, from ‘Abd Allah ibn Sinan who has said the following: “Abu ‘Abd Allah, ‘Alayhi al-Salam, has said that the Messenger of Allah, O Allah, grant compensation to Muhammad and his family worthy of their services to Your cause, has said, ‘Special treatment for a guest is in the first day, in the second day and on the third day. Anything beyond this is charity that you give to him.’ He (the Messenger of Allah) then said, ‘One of you must not stay with his brother (in belief) to cause him difficulties.’ It was asked, ‘O Messenger of Allah, how can he cause difficulties?’ He (the Messenger of Allah) said, ‘He stays with him until he (the host) has nothing else to spend for him.’”
