Hadith #1

1- عَلِيُّ بْنُ إِبْرَاهِيمَ عَنْ أَبِيهِ عَنْ إِسْمَاعِيلَ بْنِ مَرَّارٍ عَنْ يُونُسَ عَنْ مَنْصُورِ بْنِ حَازِمٍ عَنْ أَبِي عَبْدِ اللهِ (عَلَيْهِ السَّلام) فِي رَجُلٍ مَاتَ وَتَرَكَ عَبْداً فَشَهِدَ بَعْضُ وُلْدِهِ أَنَّ أَبَاهُ أَعْتَقَهُ قَالَ يَجُوزُ عَلَيْهِ شَهَادَتُهُ وَلا يُغْرَمُ وَيُسْتَسْعَى الْغُلامُ فِيمَإ؛ّّيغ كَانَ لِغَيْرِهِ مِنَ الْوَرَثَةِ.

1. Ali ibn Ibrahim has narrated from his father from ’Isma‘il ibn Marrar from Yunus from Mansur ibn Hazim who has narrated the following: “About the case of a man who dies and leaves behind a slave and certain ones of his children testify that their father had freed the slave. He (the Imam) said, ‘His testimony is permissible, he is not required to compensate and the slave is not required to work to pay for his freedom from the other heirs.’”
