عدة من أصحابنا، عن سهل بن زياد، عن جعفر بن محمد الأشعري، عن ابن القداح، عن أبي عبد الله عليه السلام قال: إن النبي صلى الله عليه وآله تختم في يساره بخاتم من ذهب ثم خرج على الناس وطفق الناس ينظرون إليه فوضع يده اليمنى على خنصره اليسرى حتى رجع إلى البيت فرمى به فما لبسه.عدة من أصحابنا، عن أحمد بن محمد، عن الوشاء، عن المثنى، عن حاتم بن إسماعيل عن أبي عبد الله عليه السلام مثله.

9. A number of our people have narrated from Sahl ibn Ziyad from Ja‘far ibn Muhammad al-Ash‘ariy from ibn al-Qaddah who has said the following: “Abu ‘Abd Allah, ‘Alayhi al-Salam, has said that the Messenger of Allah, O Allah, grant compensation to Muhammad and his family worthy of their services to Your cause, wore the ring on his left hand which was of gold then he appeared among people who continued staring at it. He (the Messenger of Allah) placed his right hand on the pinky (little finger) of his left hand until he returned home; then threw it and did not wear it again.’” From abu ‘Abd Allah, ‘Alayhi al-Salam, a narration, similar to the above Hadith, is also made by a number of our people from Ahmad ibn Muhammad, from al-Washsha’, from al-Muthanna’, from Hatim ibn ’Isma‘il.
