عَلِيُّ بْنُ إِبْرَاهِيمَ عَنْ أَبِيهِ عَنْ يَاسِرٍ الْخَادِمِ عَنِ الرِّضَا ( عليه السلام ) قَالَ لَا بَأْسَ بِكَثْرَةِ شُرْبِ الْمَاءِ عَلَى الطَّعَامِ وَ لَا تُكْثِرْ مِنْهُ عَلَى غَيْرِهِ وَ قَالَ أَ رَأَيْتَ لَوْ أَنَّ رَجُلًا أَكَلَ مِثْلَ ذَا وَ جَمَعَ يَدَيْهِ كِلْتَيْهِمَا لَمْ يَضُمَّهُمَا وَ لَمْ يُفَرِّقْهُمَا ثُمَّ لَمْ يَشْرَبْ عَلَيْهِ الْمَاءَ كَانَ يَنْشَقُّ مَعِدَتُهُ .
