1- عَلِيُّ بْنُ إِبْرَاهِيمَ عَنْ أَبِيهِ عَنْ أَبِي طَالِبٍ عَبْدِ اللهِ بْنِ الصَّلْتِ قَالَ كَتَبَ الْخَلِيلُ بْنُ هَاشِمٍ إِلَى ذِي الرِّئَاسَتَيْنِ وَهُوَ وَالِي نَيْسَابُورَ أَنَّ رَجُلا مِنَ الْمَجُوسِ مَاتَ وَأَوْصَى لِلْفُقَرَاءِ بِشَيْ‏ءٍ مِنْ مَالِهِ فَأَخَذَهُ قَاضِي نَيْسَابُورَ فَجَعَلَهُ فِي فُقَرَاءِ الْمُسْلِمِينَ فَكَتَبَ الْخَلِيلُ إِلَى ذِي الرِّئَاسَتَيْنِ بِذَلِكَ فَسَأَلَ الْمَأْمُونَ عَنْ ذَلِكَ فَقَالَ لَيْسَ عِنْدِي فِي ذَلِكَ شَيْ‏ءٌ فَسَأَلَ أَبَا الْحَسَنِ (عَلَيْهِ السَّلام) فَقَالَ أَبُو الْحَسَنِ (عَلَيْهِ السَّلام) إِنَّ الْمَجُوسِيَّ لَمْ يُوصِ لِفُقَرَاءِ الْمُسْلِمِينَ وَلَكِنْ يَنْبَغِي أَنْ يُؤْخَذَ مِقْدَارُ ذَلِكَ الْمَالِ مِنْ مَالِ الصَّدَقَةِ فَيُرَدَّ عَلَى فُقَرَاءِ الْمَجُوسِ.

1. Ali ibn Ibrahim has narrated from his father from abu Talib ‘ Abd Allah ibn al-Salt who has narrated the following: “Once, Khalil ibn Hashim wrote to Dhi al-Riyasatayn who was the governor of Nisabur and asked that a Zoroastrian man has died and has made a will about a certain amount from his assets for the poor. The judge of Nisabur took the amount and gave it to the poor Muslims. Dhu al-Riyasatayn asked Ma’mun about it. Ma’mun who did not have any answer for it asked abu al-Hassan, ‘Alayhi al-Salam, about it and abu al-Hassan, ‘Alayhi al-Salam, said, ‘A Zoroastrian man does not make a will for the poor Muslims. It is proper to take that amount from the treasury of charity and return it to the poor Zoroastrians.’”
