3ـ عَلِيُّ بْنُ إِبْرَاهِيمَ عَنْ أَبِيهِ عَنِ ابْنِ أَبِي عُمَيْرٍ عَنْ حَمَّادٍ عَنِ الْحَلَبِيِّ عَنْ أَبِي عَبْدِ الله (عَلَيْهِ السَّلاَم) قَالَ مَرَّ أَبُو جَعْفَرٍ (عَلَيْهِ السَّلاَم) بِامْرَأَةٍ مُتَنَقِّبَةٍ وَهِيَ مُحْرِمَةٌ فَقَالَ أَحْرِمِي وَأَسْفِرِي وَأَرْخِي ثَوْبَكِ مِنْ فَوْقِ رَأْسِكِ فَإِنَّكِ إِنْ تَنَقَّبْتِ لَمْ يَتَغَيَّرْ لَوْنُكِ فَقَالَ رَجُلٌ إِلَى أَيْنَ تُرْخِيهِ فَقَالَ تُغَطِّي عَيْنَيْهَا قَالَ قُلْتُ يَبْلُغُ فَمَهَا قَالَ نَعَمْ وَقَالَ أَبُو عَبْدِ الله (عَلَيْهِ السَّلاَم) الْمُحْرِمَةُ لا تَلْبَسُ الْحُلِيَّ وَلا الثِّيَابَ الْمُصَبَّغَاتِ إِلاَّ صِبْغٌ لا يَرْدَعُ.

3. Ali ibn Ibrahim has narrated from his father from ibn abu ‘Umayr from Hammad from al-Halabiy who has said the following: “Abu ‘Abd Allah, ‘Alayhi al-Salam, has said that abu Ja‘far, ‘Alayhi al-Salam, once said to a woman veiled in the state of Ihram, ‘Assume the state of Ihram with your face uncovered and allow your clothes to hang down from over your head; if you use veil, your color will not change.’ A man then asked, ‘How far down must she hang her clothes? Must she cover her eyes?’ I then asked, ‘Can it reach down to her mouth?’ He (the Imam) said, ‘Yes, it is permissible.’ Abu ‘Abd Allah, ‘Alayhi al- Salam, has said, ‘Women in the state of Ihram must not wear jewelry and dyed clothes, unless it (dye) is of saffron.’”
