1- عِدَّةٌ مِنْ أَصْحَابِنَا عَنْ أَحْمَدَ بْنِ مُحَمَّدٍ عَنِ الْحُسَيْنِ بْنِ سَعِيدٍ عَنِ الْقَاسِمِ بْنِ مُحَمَّدٍ عَنْ سُلَيْمٍ مَوْلَى طِرْبَالٍ عَنْ حَرِيزٍ عَنْ أَبِي عَبْدِ اللهِ (عَلَيْهِ السَّلام) فِي رَجُلٍ كَانَ يَطَأُ جَارِيَةً لَهُ وَأَنَّهُ كَانَ يَبْعَثُهَا فِي حَوَائِجِهِ وَأَنَّهَا حَبِلَتْ وَأَنَّهُ [اتَّهَمَهَا وَ] بَلَغَهُ عَنْهَا فَسَادٌ فَقَالَ أَبُو عَبْدِ اللهِ (عَلَيْهِ السَّلام) إِذَا هِيَ وَلَدَتْ أَمْسَكَ الْوَلَدَ وَلا يَبِيعُهُ وَيَجْعَلُ لَهُ نَصِيباً مِنْ دَارِهِ [وَمَالِهِ] قَالَ فَقِيلَ لَهُ رَجُلٌ يَطَأُ جَارِيَةً لَهُ وَإِنَّهُ لَمْ يَكُنْ يَبْعَثُهَا فِي حَوَائِجِهِ وَإِنَّهُ اتَّهَمَهَا وَحَبِلَتْ فَقَالَ إِذَا هِيَ وَلَدَتْ أَمْسَكَ الْوَلَدَ وَلا يَبِيعُهُ وَيَجْعَلُ لَهُ نَصِيباً مِنْ دَارِهِ وَمَالِهِ وَلَيْسَتْ هَذِهِ مِثْلَ تِلْكَ.


1. A number of our people have narrated from Ahmad ibn Muhammad from al-Husayn ibn Sa‘id from al-Qasim ibn Muhammad ibn Muhammad from Salim Mawla Tirbal from Hariz who has narrated the following: “This is about the case of a man who goes to bed with his slave-girl and sends her to do certain works for him. She becomes pregnant; he [accuses] her and receives news of her misbehaving. He (the Imam) said, ‘When she gives birth he must keep the child and must not sell him but assign for him a share from his house [and assets].’ It was then asked about a man who goes to bed with his slave-girl, does not send her to work for him but he accuses her of misbehaving and she becomes pregnant. He (the Imam) said, ‘When she gives birth he must keep the child and must not sell but assign a share for the child from his house and assets. This is not like that.’”

2- مُحَمَّدُ بْنُ يَحْيَى عَنْ أَحْمَدَ بْنِ مُحَمَّدٍ وَعَلِيُّ بْنُ إِبْرَاهِيمَ عَنْ أَبِيهِ جَمِيعاً عَنِ ابْنِ مَحْبُوبٍ عَنْ عَبْدِ اللهِ بْنِ سِنَانٍ عَنْ أَبِي عَبْدِ اللهِ (عَلَيْهِ السَّلام) قَالَ إِنَّ رَجُلا مِنَ الأنْصَارِ أَتَى أَبِي فَقَالَ لَهُ إِنِّي ابْتُلِيتُ بِأَمْرٍ عَظِيمٍ إِنَّ لِي جَارِيَةً كُنْتُ أَطَأُهَا فَوَطِئْتُهَا يَوْماً وَخَرَجْتُ فِي حَاجَةٍ لِي بَعْدَ مَا اغْتَسَلْتُ مِنْهَا وَنَسِيتُ نَفَقَةً لِي فَرَجَعْتُ إِلَى الْمَنْزِلِ لآخُذَهَا فَوَجَدْتُ غُلامِي عَلَى بَطْنِهَا فَعَدَدْتُ لَهَا مِنْ يَوْمِي ذَلِكَ تِسْعَةَ أَشْهُرٍ فَوَلَدَتْ جَارِيَةً قَالَ فَقَالَ لَهُ أَبِي لا يَنْبَغِي لَكَ أَنْ تَقْرَبَهَا وَلا تَبِيعَهَا وَلَكِنْ أَنْفِقْ عَلَيْهَا مِنْ مَالِكَ مَا دُمْتَ حَيّاً ثُمَّ أَوْصِ عِنْدَ مَوْتِكَ أَنْ يُنْفَقَ عَلَيْهَا مِنْ مَالِكَ حَتَّى يَجْعَلَ اللهُ لَهَا مَخْرَجاً.


2. Muhammad ibn Yahya has narrated from Ahmad ibn Muhammad and Ali ibn Ibrahim has narrated from his father all from ibn Mahbub from ‘ Abd Allah ibn Sinan who has narrated the following: “Abu ‘Abd Allah, ‘Alayhi al-Salam, has said that once a man from al-Ansar (people of al-Madinah) came to my father and said, ‘I am facing a huge problem. I have a slave-girl and I would go to bed with her. One day I went to bed with her, then went out for a certain work after taking Ghusl (bath); but I had forgotten something so I returned back home and found my slave on her belly. I counted nine months from that day and she gave birth to a girl. My father said to him, ‘It is not proper for you to go close to her. Do not sell her. Spend for her from your assets as long as you live, and make a will to spend for her after your death from your assets until Allah makes a way out thereof.’”
