Hadith #7

مُحَمَّدُ بْنُ يَحْيَى عَنْ بَعْضِ أَصْحَابِنَا عَمَّنْ ذَكَرَهُ عَنْ أَبِي جَمِيلَةَ الْبَصْرِيِّ قَالَ كُنْتُ مَعَ يُونُسَ بِبَغْدَادَ فَبَيْنَا أَنَا أَمْشِي مَعَهُ فِي السُّوقِ إِذْ فَتَحَ صَاحِبُ الْفُقَّاعِ فُقَّاعَهُ فَأَصَابَ ثَوْبَ يُونُسَ فَرَأَيْتُهُ قَدِ اغْتَمَّ لِذَلِكَ حَتَّى زَالَتِ الشَّمْسُ فَقُلْتُ لَهُ أَ لَا تُصَلِّي يَا أَبَا مُحَمَّدٍ فَقَالَ لَيْسَ أُرِيدُ أَنْ أُصَلِّيَ حَتَّى أَرْجِعَ إِلَى الْبَيْتِ فَأَغْسِلَ هَذَا الْخَمْرَ مِنْ ثَوْبِي قَالَ فَقُلْتُ لَهُ هَذَا رَأْيُكَ أَوْ شَيْ‏ءٌ تَرْوِيهِ فَقَالَ أَخْبَرَنِي هِشَامُ بْنُ الْحَكَمِ أَنَّهُ سَأَلَ أَبَا عَبْدِ اللَّهِ ( عليه السلام ) عَنِ الْفُقَّاعِ فَقَالَ لَا تَشْرَبْهُ فَإِنَّهُ خَمْرٌ مَجْهُولٌ فَإِذَا أَصَابَ ثَوْبَكَ فَاغْسِلْهُ .

7. Muhamad ibn Yahya has narrated from certain persons of our people from those whom he has mentioned from abu Jamilah al-Basriy who have said the following: “Once Yunus and I were in Baghdad, as we were walking, an al-Fuqa’ seller opened his shop and the cloth of Yunus came in contact with al-Fuqa’. I saw him depressed until the sun declined to the west and I asked, ‘Do you not want to perform Salat (prayer), O abu Muhammad?’ He replied, ‘I do not want to perform Salat (prayer) until I return home so I can wash this wine from my clothes.’ I then asked, ‘Is it your own opinion or something that you narrate?’ He said, ‘Hisham ibn al-Hakam informed me that he asked abu ‘Abd Allah, ‘Alayhi al-Salam, about al-Fuqa’ and he (the Imam) said, ‘Do not drink it; it is unknown wine and if your clothes come in contact with it wash them clean.’”
