1- عَلِيُّ بْنُ مُحَمَّدٍ عَنْ مُحَمَّدِ بْنِ سَعِيدٍ الآذَرْبِيجَانِيِّ وَمُحَمَّدُ بْنُ يَحْيَى عَنْ عَبْدِ اللهِ بْنِ جَعْفَرٍ عَنِ الْحَسَنِ بْنِ عَلِيِّ بْنِ كَيْسَانَ جَمِيعاً عَنْ مُوسَى بْنِ مُحَمَّدٍ أَخِي أَبِي الْحَسَنِ الثَّالِثِ (عَلَيْهِ السَّلام) أَنَّ يَحْيَى بْنَ أَكْثَمَ سَأَلَهُ فِي الْمَسَائِلِ الَّتِي سَأَلَهُ عَنْهَا قَالَ وَأَخْبِرْنِي عَنِ الْخُنْثَى وَقَوْلِ أَمِيرِ الْمُؤْمِنِينَ (عَلَيْهِ السَّلام) فِيهِ يُوَرَّثُ الْخُنْثَى مِنَ الْمَبَالِ مَنْ يَنْظُرُ إِلَيْهِ إِذَا بَالَ وَشَهَادَةُ الْجَارِّ إِلَى نَفْسِهِ لا تُقْبَلُ مَعَ أَنَّهُ عَسَى أَنْ تَكُونَ امْرَأَةً وَقَدْ نَظَرَ إِلَيْهَا الرِّجَالُ أَوْ عَسَى أَنْ يَكُونَ رَجُلا وَقَدْ نَظَرَ إِلَيْهِ النِّسَاءُ وَهَذَا مِمَّا لا يَحِلُّ فَأَجَابَهُ أَبُو الْحَسَنِ الثَّالِثُ (عَلَيْهِ السَّلام) عَنْهَا أَمَّا قَوْلُ عَلِيٍّ (عَلَيْهِ السَّلام) فِي الْخُنْثَى أَنَّهُ يُوَرَّثُ مِنَ الْمَبَالِ فَهُوَ كَمَا قَالَ وَيَنْظُرُ قَوْمٌ عُدُولٌ يَأْخُذُ كُلُّ وَاحِدٍ مِنْهُمْ مِرْآةً وَيَقُومُ الْخُنْثَى خَلْفَهُمْ عُرْيَانَةً فَيَنْظُرُونَ فِي الْمِرْآةِ فَيَرَوْنَ شَبَحاً فَيَحْكُمُونَ عَلَيْهِ.


1. Ali ibn Muhammad has narrated from Muhammad ibn Sa‘id al-Azarbayijaniy and Muhammad ibn Yahya from ‘Abd Allah ibn Ja‘far from al-Hassan ibn Ali ibn Kaysan all from Musa ibn Muhammad son of brother of abu al-Hassan, al-Thalith, ‘Alayhi al-Salam, who has narrated the following: “Yahya ibn Aktham asked him (the Imam) questions; among the questions that he asked one was about hermaphrodite and the words of ’ Amir al-Mu’minin that a hermaphrodite inherits according to the manner of urinating and that who must look at the child (the person) when urinating and that the testimony of one who is unfair to himself is not accepted. That perhaps such person is a female and a man looks at her or that the person is a female and a man has looked at her, which is not lawful. Abu al-Hassan, al-Thalith, ‘Alayhi al-Salam, answered him saying, ‘The words of ’ Amir al-Mu’minin that a hermaphrodite inherits according to the manner of urinating, are as they are. People of justice must look at hermaphrodite, each one takes a mirror, and the hermaphrodite stands behind them. They see a form and judge accordingly.”’
