7ـ عَلِيُّ بْنُ إِبْرَاهِيمَ عَنْ أَبِيهِ عَنْ عَلِيِّ بْنِ مَعْبَدٍ عَنِ الدِّهْقَانِ عَنْ دُرُسْتَ عَنْ أَبِي خَالِدٍ قَالَ اغْسِلْ كُلَّ شَيْ‏ءٍ مِنَ الْمَوْتَى الْغَرِيقِ وَأَكِيلِ السَّبُعِ وَكُلَّ شَيْ‏ءٍ إِلاَّ مَا قُتِلَ بَيْنَ الصَّفَّيْنِ فَإِنْ كَانَ بِهِ رَمَقٌ غُسِّلَ وَإِلاَّ فَلاَ.

7. Ali ibn Ibrahim has narrated from his father from Ali ibn Ma’bad from al-Dihqan from Drust from abu Khalid who has said the following: “He (the Imam), ‘Alayhi al-Salam, has said, ‘You must give Ghusl (bath) to every dead person because of drowning, being killed by beasts and by all other causes except those who are killed between two lines of fighters, who only if found alive, are given Ghusl (bath), otherwise, Ghusl (bath) is not required.’”
