سَهْلُ بْنُ زِيَادٍ عَنْ مُحَمَّدِ بْنِ الْحَسَنِ بْنِ شَمُّونٍ الْبَصْرِيِّ عَنْ أَبِي طَيْفُورٍ الْمُتَطَبِّبِ قَالَ دَخَلْتُ عَلَى أَبِي الْحَسَنِ الْمَاضِي ( عليه السلام ) فَنَهَيْتُهُ عَنْ شُرْبِ الْمَاءِ فَقَالَ ( عليه السلام ) وَ مَا بَأْسٌ بِالْمَاءِ وَ هُوَ يُدِيرُ الطَّعَامَ فِي الْمَعِدَةِ وَ يُسَكِّنُ الْغَضَبَ وَ يَزِيدُ فِي اللُّبِّ وَ يُطْفِئُ الْمِرَارَ .


2. Sahl ibn Ziyad has narrated from Muhammad ibn al-Hassan ibn Shammun al-Basriy from abu Tayfur al-Mutatabib who has said the following: “I once visited abu al-Hassan, al-Madiy, Alayhi al-Salam, and I prohibited him from drinking water. He (the Imam) said, ‘What is wrong with water when it turns food in the stomach, calms down the anger, increases marrows (learning ability) and removes bitterness?”’

الْحُسَيْنُ بْنُ مُحَمَّدٍ عَنْ مُعَلَّى بْنِ مُحَمَّدٍ الْبَصْرِيِّ عَنْ أَبِي دَاوُدَ الْمُسْتَرِقِّ عَمَّنْ حَدَّثَهُ قَالَ كُنْتُ عِنْدَ أَبِي عَبْدِ اللَّهِ ( عليه السلام ) فَدَعَا بِتَمْرٍ فَأَكَلَ وَ أَقْبَلَ يَشْرَبُ عَلَيْهِ الْمَاءَ فَقُلْتُ لَهُ جُعِلْتُ فِدَاكَ لَوْ أَمْسَكْتَ عَنِ الْمَاءِ فَقَالَ إِنَّمَا آكُلُ التَّمْرَ لِأَسْتَطِيبَ عَلَيْهِ الْمَاءَ.


3. Al-Husayn from Muhammad has narrated from Mu‘alla’ ibn Muhammad al-Basriy from Dawud al-Mustariq from the one who narrated to him who has said the following: “I once was with abu ‘Abd Allah, ‘Alayhi al-Salam, and he asked for dates which he ate and then he kept drinking water. I then said, ‘I pray to Allah to keep my soul in service for your cause, I wish you refrain from drinking water.’ He (the Imam) said, ‘I eat dates only to make water taste more delicious.’”

عَلِيُّ بْنُ مُحَمَّدٍ عَنْ بَعْضِ أَصْحَابِهِ عَنْ يَاسِرٍ قَالَ قَالَ أَبُو الْحَسَنِ ( عليه السلام ) عَجَباً لِمَنْ أَكَلَ مِثْلَ ذَا وَ أَشَارَ بِيَدِهِ وَ لَمْ يَشْرَبْ عَلَيْهِ الْمَاءَ كَيْفَ لَا تَنْشَقُّ مَعِدَتُهُ .
