1- حُمَيْدُ بْنُ زِيَادٍ عَنِ الْحَسَنِ بْنِ مُحَمَّدٍ عَنْ غَيْرِ وَاحِدٍ عَنْ أَبَانٍ عَنِ ابْنِ أَبِي يَعْفُورٍ عَنْ أَبِي عَبْدِ اللهِ (عَلَيْهِ السَّلام) قَالَ إِذَا اخْتَلَفَا فِي الرَّهْنِ فَقَالَ أَحَدُهُمَا رَهَنْتَهُ بِأَلْفِ دِرْهَمٍ وَقَالَ الآخَرُ بِمِائَةِ دِرْهَمٍ فَقَالَ يُسْأَلُ صَاحِبُ الألْفِ الْبَيِّنَةَ فَإِنْ لَمْ يَكُنْ لَهُ بَيِّنَةٌ حَلَفَ صَاحِبُ الْمِائَةِ وَإِنْ كَانَ الرَّهْنُ أَقَلَّ مِمَّا رُهِنَ أَوْ أَكْثَرَ وَاخْتَلَفَا فَقَالَ أَحَدُهُمَا هُوَ رَهْنٌ وَقَالَ الآخَرُ هُوَ عِنْدَكَ وَدِيعَةٌ فَقَالَ يُسْأَلُ صَاحِبُ الْوَدِيعَةِ الْبَيِّنَةَ فَإِنْ لَمْ يَكُنْ لَهُ بَيِّنَةٌ حَلَفَ صَاحِبُ الرَّهْنِ.

1. Humayd ibn Ziyad has narrated from al-Hassan ibn Muhammad from more than one person from Aban from ibn abu Ya’fur who has said the foiiowing: “About the case of a dispute between the parties if one says that the amount of al-Rahn (security deposit) is one thousand dirham and the other says that it is one hundred dirham, abu ‘ Abd Allah, ‘Alayhi al-Salam, has said, ‘The one who claims it to be one thousand dirham is asked to present proof and testimony. If he fails to do so, then the other party is asked to take an oath.’ If the amount of al- Rahn (security deposit) is more or less but one party claims it to be al-Rahn (security deposit) and the party claims it to be Wadi‘ah (safe deposit), abu ‘Abd Allah, ‘Alayhi al-Salam, has said, ‘The party who claims it to be Wadi ‘ah (safe deposit) is asked to present proof and testimony and upon his failure the other party is then asked to take an oath (to settle the dispute).’”
