Hadith #1

1ـ مُحَمَّدُ بْنُ يَحْيَى عَنْ أَحْمَدَ بْنِ مُحَمَّدٍ عَنِ ابْنِ مَحْبُوبٍ عَنْ هِشَامِ بْنِ سَالِمٍ عَنْ أَبِي بَصِيرٍ عَنْ أَحَدِهِمَا (عَلَيْهِما السَّلاَم) فِي رَجُلٍ أَعْطَى رَجُلاً دَرَاهِمَ يَحُجُّ بِهَا عَنْهُ حَجَّةً مُفْرَدَةً أَ يَجُوزُ لَهُ أَنْ يَتَمَتَّعَ بِالْعُمْرَةِ إِلَى الْحَجِّ فَقَالَ نَعَمْ إِنَّمَا خَالَفَهُ إِلَى الْفَضْلِ.

1. Muhammad ibn Yahya has narrated from Ahmad ibn Muhammad from ibn Mahbub from Hisham ibn Salim from abu Basir who has said the following: “I once asked one of the two Imam, (abu Ja’far or abu ‘Abd Allah), ‘Alayhim al-Salam, about a man who pays someone to perform al-Hajj in Ifrad manner (al-Hajj without al- £ Umrah) for him; if it is permissible to perform in al-Hajj al-Tamattu‘ (advantageous) manner. He (the Imam) said, ‘He has opposed him in what is more virtuous.’”
