Hadith #1

1ـ عِدَّةٌ مِنْ أَصْحَابِنَا عَنْ أَحْمَدَ بْنِ مُحَمَّدٍ عَنْ مُحَمَّدِ بْنِ إِسْمَاعِيلَ بْنِ بَزِيعٍ أَوْ غَيْرِهِ عَنْ مُحَمَّدِ بْنِ عُذَافِرٍ عَنْ عُمَرَ بْنِ يَزِيدَ قَالَ سَأَلْتُ أَبَا عَبْدِ الله (عَلَيْهِ السَّلاَم) عَنِ الصَّدَقَةِ عَلَى أَهْلِ الْبَوَادِي وَالسَّوَادِ فَقَالَ تَصَدَّقْ عَلَى الصِّبْيَانِ وَالنِّسَاءِ وَالزَّمْنَى وَالضُّعَفَاءِ وَالشُّيُوخِ وَكَانَ يَنْهَى عَنْ أُولَئِكَ الْجُمَّانِينَ يَعْنِي أَصْحَابَ الشُّعُورِ.

1. A number of our people have narrated from Ahmad ibn Muhammad from Muhammad ibn Isma‘il ibn Bazi’ or someone other than him from Muhammad ibn ‘Adhafir from ‘Umar ibn Yazid who has said the following: “I asked abu ‘ Abd Allah, ‘Alayhi al-Salam, about giving charity to the Bedouins and people who live in remote areas. He replied, ‘Give charity to their children, women and people suffering from chronic illness, the weak and the old.’ He prohibited giving charity to those with big hairs (meaning thereby people hostile to ’A’immah).’’
