Hadith #2

2- أَحْمَدُ بْنُ مُحَمَّدٍ عَنْ عَلِيِّ بْنِ الْحَسَنِ عَنْ أَخَوَيْهِ مُحَمَّدٍ وَأَحْمَدَ عَنْ أَبِيهِمَا عَنْ دَاوُدَ بْنِ أَبِي يَزِيدَ عَنْ بُرَيْدِ بْنِ مُعَاوِيَةَ قَالَ إِنَّ رَجُلا مَاتَ وَأَوْصَى إِلَيَّ وَإِلَى آخَرَ أَوْ إِلَى رَجُلَيْنِ فَقَالَ أَحَدُهُمَا خُذْ نِصْفَ مَا تَرَكَ وَأَعْطِنِي النِّصْفَ مِمَّا تَرَكَ فَأَبَى عَلَيْهِ الآخَرُ فَسَأَلُوا أَبَا عَبْدِ اللهِ (عَلَيْهِ السَّلام) عَنْ ذَلِكَ فَقَالَ ذَلِكَ لَهُ.

2. Ahmad ibn Muhammad has narrated from Ali ibn al-Hassan from his two brothers, Muhammad and Ahmad from their father from Dawud ibn abu Yazid from Burayd ibn Mu’awiyah who has narrated the following: “A man died and appointed me and another man or two men as executors for his will. One of them said, ‘I will deal with one-half of the legacy but the other one opposed, and they asked abu ‘Abd Allah, ‘Alayhi al-Salam, about it. He (the Imam) said, ‘It is for him (to disagree).”’
