عِدَّةٌ مِنْ أَصْحَابِنَا عَنْ أَحْمَدَ بْنِ أَبِي عَبْدِ اللَّهِ عَنْ مُحَمَّدِ بْنِ إِسْمَاعِيلَ عَنْ أَبِي إِسْمَاعِيلَ السَّرَّاجِ عَنْ أَبِي عِمْرَانَ عَنْ رَجُلٍ عَنْ أَبِي عَبْدِ اللَّهِ ( عليه السلام ) أَنَّهُ نَظَرَ إِلَى نَعْلٍ شِرَاكُهَا مَعْقُودَةٌ فَتَنَاوَلَهَا أَبُو عَبْدِ اللَّهِ ( عليه السلام ) فَحَلَّهَا ثُمَّ قَالَ لَا تَعْقِدْ .

12. A number of our people have narrated from Ahmad ibn abu ‘Abd Allah from Muhammad ibn ’Isma‘il from abu ’Isma‘il al-Sarraj from ‘Imran from a man who has said the following: “Abu ‘Abd Allah, ‘Alayhi al-Salam, once looked at a shoe which had laces that were tied down. He (the Imam) picked it up, opened its laces and said, ‘This must not be tied down.’”
