Al-Kāfi - Volume 4 > The Case of One Who Is Paid for al-Hajj but It Is Not Enough or Is Paid and He Gives It to Someone Else
Hadith #1

1ـ مُحَمَّدُ بْنُ يَحْيَى عَنْ أَحْمَدَ بْنِ مُحَمَّدٍ عَنْ مُحَمَّدِ بْنِ إِسْمَاعِيلَ قَالَ أَمَرْتُ رَجُلاً يَسْأَلُ أَبَا الْحَسَنِ (عَلَيْهِ السَّلاَم) عَنِ الرَّجُلِ يَأْخُذُ مِنْ رَجُلٍ حَجَّةً فَلا تَكْفِيهِ أَ لَهُ أَنْ يَأْخُذَ مِنْ رَجُلٍ أُخْرَى وَيَتَّسِعَ بِهَا وَيُجْزِئُ عَنْهُمَا جَمِيعاً أَوْ يُشْرِكُهُمَا جَمِيعاً إِنْ لَمْ تَكْفِهِ إِحْدَاهُمَا فَذَكَرَ أَنَّهُ قَالَ أَحَبُّ إِلَيَّ أَنْ تَكُونَ خَالِصَةً لِوَاحِدٍ فَإِنْ كَانَتْ لا تَكْفِيهِ فَلا يَأْخُذْهَا.

1. Muhammad ibn Yahya has narrated from Ahmad ibn Muhammad from Muhammad ibn ‘Isma‘il who has said the following: “I once instructed a man to ask abu al-Hassan, ‘Alayhi al-Salam, about a man who receives an amount to perform al-Hajj but it is not sufficient. Can he get additional amount from other persons to combine and make them as partners, or that al-Hajj is only for one of them? He quoted him (the Imam) as having said, ‘I like it to be for one of them only, but if it is not sufficient, he must not take such amount.’”
