Hadith #2

2ـ مُحَمَّدُ بْنُ يَحْيَى عَنْ مُحَمَّدِ بْنِ الْحَسَنِ عَنْ صَفْوَانَ عَنْ شُعَيْبٍ الْعَقَرْقُوفِيِّ عَنْ أَبِي بَصِيرٍ عَنْ أَبِي عَبْدِ الله (عَلَيْهِ السَّلاَم) قَالَ سَأَلْتُهُ عَنِ الرَّجُلِ يُرِيدُ مَكَّةَ أَوِ الْمَدِينَةَ يَكْرَهُ أَنْ يَخْرُجَ مَعَهُ بِالسِّلاحِ فَقَالَ لا بَأْسَ بِأَنْ يَخْرُجَ بِالسِّلاحِ مِنْ بَلَدِهِ وَلَكِنْ إِذَا دَخَلَ مَكَّةَ لَمْ يُظْهِرْهُ.

2. Muhammad ibn Yahya has narrated from Muhammad ibn al-Hassan from Safwan from Shu’ayb al-‘Aqarqufiy form abu Basir who has said the following: “I once asked abu ‘Abd Allah, ‘Alayhi al-Salam, about a man who wants to go to Makkah or al- Madinah and dislikes to carry arms with him. He (the Imam) said, ‘It is not harmful to carry arms when leaving his town but when entering Makkah he must not allow it to come into view.’”
