Al-Kāfi - Volume 7 > The Inheritance Due to Special Contract
Hadith #1

1- أَبُو عَلِيٍّ الأشْعَرِيُّ عَنْ مُحَمَّدِ بْنِ عَبْدِ الْجَبَّارِ عَنْ صَفْوَانَ بْنِ يَحْيَى عَنْ مَنْصُورِ بْنِ حَازِمٍ عَنْ أَبِي عَبْدِ اللهِ (عَلَيْهِ السَّلام) قَالَ الْمُكَاتَبُ يَرِثُ وَيُورَثُ عَلَى قَدْرِ مَا أَدَّى.

1. Abu Ali al-Ash‘ariy has narrated from Muhammad ibn ‘Abd al-Jabbar from Safwan ibn Yahya from Mansur ibn Hazim who has narrated the following: “Abu ‘Abd Allah, ‘Alayhi al-Salam, has said, ‘A contracting slave inherits proportionate to the amount he has paid.’” (The above form of contracting is a contract between a slave and his master, which is an agreement that requires the slave to pay a certain amount to become free. Such contract can entail conditions and restrictions or is without restrictions). [Note: Other Ahadith of this chapter are not translated because of not being applicable in our time.]
