1- عَلِيُّ بْنُ إِبْرَاهِيمَ عَنْ أَبِيهِ عَنْ إِسْمَاعِيلَ بْنِ مَرَّارٍ عَنْ يُونُسَ عَنْ مَنْصُورِ بْنِ حَازِمٍ عَنْ أَبِي عَبْدِ اللهِ (عَلَيْهِ السَّلام) فِي رَجُلٍ مَاتَ وَتَرَكَ عَبْداً فَشَهِدَ بَعْضُ وُلْدِهِ أَنَّ أَبَاهُ أَعْتَقَهُ قَالَ يَجُوزُ عَلَيْهِ شَهَادَتُهُ وَلا يُغْرَمُ وَيُسْتَسْعَى الْغُلامُ فِيمَإ؛ّّيغ كَانَ لِغَيْرِهِ مِنَ الْوَرَثَةِ.


1. Ali ibn Ibrahim has narrated from his father from ’Isma‘il ibn Marrar from Yunus from Mansur ibn Hazim who has narrated the following: “About the case of a man who dies and leaves behind a slave and certain ones of his children testify that their father had freed the slave. He (the Imam) said, ‘His testimony is permissible, he is not required to compensate and the slave is not required to work to pay for his freedom from the other heirs.’”

2- حُمَيْدُ بْنُ زِيَادٍ عَنِ الْحَسَنِ بْنِ مُحَمَّدِ بْنِ سَمَاعَةَ عَنْ بَعْضِ أَصْحَابِهِ عَنْ أَبَانِ بْنِ عُثْمَانَ عَنْ مَنْصُورِ بْنِ حَازِمٍ عَنْ أَبِي عَبْدِ اللهِ (عَلَيْهِ السَّلام) قَالَ سَأَلْتُهُ عَنْ رَجُلٍ مَاتَ وَتَرَكَ غُلاماً مَمْلُوكاً فَشَهِدَ بَعْضُ الْوَرَثَةِ أَنَّهُ حُرٌّ فَقَالَ إِنْ كَانَ الشَّاهِدُ مَرْضِيّاً جَازَتْ شَهَادَتُهُ فِي نَصِيبِهِ وَاسْتُسْعِيَ فِيمَا كَانَ لِغَيْرِهِ مِنَ الْوَرَثَةِ.


2. Humayd ibn Ziyad has narrated from al-Hassan ibn Muhammad ibn Sama‘ah from certain persons of his people from Aban ibn ‘Uthman from Mansur ibn Hazim who has narrated the following: “I once asked abu ‘Abd Allah, ‘Alayhi al-Salam, about the case of a man who dies and leaves behind an owned slave, but certain ones of the heirs testify that he is free. He (the Imam) said, ‘If the testifying person is an acceptable person his testimony is permissible on his share of the legacy and the slave is made to work to buy his freedom from the rest of the heirs.’”
