Hadith #1

1- عِدَّةٌ مِنْ أَصْحَابِنَا عَنْ أَحْمَدَ بْنِ مُحَمَّدٍ عَنِ الْحَسَنِ بْنِ عَلِيِّ بْنِ يَقْطِينٍ عَنْ أَخِيهِ الْحُسَيْنِ عَنْ عَلِيِّ بْنِ يَقْطِينٍ قَالَ سَأَلْتُ أَبَا الْحَسَنِ (عَلَيْهِ السَّلام) عَنِ الرَّجُلِ يَكْتَرِي السَّفِينَةَ سَنَةً أَوْ أَقَلَّ أَوْ أَكْثَرَ قَالَ الْكِرَى لازِمٌ إِلَى الْوَقْتِ الَّذِي اكْتَرَاهُ إِلَيْهِ وَالْخِيَارُ فِي أَخْذِ الْكِرَى إِلَى رَبِّهَا إِنْ شَاءَ أَخَذَ وَإِنْ شَاءَ تَرَكَ.

1. A number of our people have narrated from Ahmad ibn Muhammad from al-Hassan ibn Ali ibn Yaqtin from his brother al-Husayn from Ali ibn Yaqtin who has said the following: “This is concerning my question before abu al-Hassan, ‘Alayhi al-Salam, about the case of a man who rents a ship for a year or less or more. He (the Imam) said, ‘The lease is binding up to the end of its term. Receiving payment of rent is up to the owner who may accept it or leave it.’”
