3- عَلِيُّ بْنُ إِبْرَاهِيمَ عَنْ أَبِيهِ عَنِ ابْنِ أَبِي عُمَيْرٍ وَمُحَمَّدُ بْنُ يَحْيَى عَنْ أَحْمَدَ بْنِ مُحَمَّدٍ عَنِ ابْنِ أَبِي عُمَيْرٍ عَنْ جَمِيلِ بْنِ دَرَّاجٍ عَنْ سَلَمَةَ بْنِ مُحْرِزٍ قَالَ قُلْتُ لأبِي عَبْدِ اللهِ (عَلَيْهِ السَّلام) إِنَّ رَجُلا أَرْمَانِيّاً مَاتَ وَأَوْصَى إِلَيَّ فَقَالَ لِي وَمَا الأرْمَانِيُّ قُلْتُ نَبَطِيٌّ مِنْ أَنْبَاطِ الْجِبَالِ مَاتَ وَأَوْصَى إِلَيَّ بِتَرِكَتِهِ وَتَرَكَ ابْنَتَهُ قَالَ فَقَالَ لِي أَعْطِهَا النِّصْفَ قَالَ فَأَخْبَرْتُ زُرَارَةَ بِذَلِكَ فَقَالَ لِي اتَّقَاكَ إِنَّمَا الْمَالُ لَهَا قَالَ فَدَخَلْتُ عَلَيْهِ بَعْدُ فَقُلْتُ أَصْلَحَكَ اللهُ إِنَّ أَصْحَابَنَا زَعَمُوا أَنَّكَ اتَّقَيْتَنِي فَقَالَ لا وَاللهِ مَا اتَّقَيْتُكَ وَلَكِنِ اتَّقَيْتُ عَلَيْكَ أَنْ تُضَمَّنَ فَهَلْ عَلِمَ بِذَلِكَ أَحَدٌ قُلْتُ لا قَالَ فَأَعْطِهَا مَا بَقِيَ.

3. Ali ibn Ibrahim has narrated from his father from ibn abu ‘Umayr from Ahmad ibn Muhammad from Muhammad ibn Yahya has narrated from Ahmad ibn Muhammad from ibn abu ‘Umayr from Jamil ibn Darraj from Salmah ibn Muhriz who has narrated the following: “I once said to abu ‘Abd Allah, ‘Alayhi al-Salam, that an Armani man has died and has made a will to me. He (the Imam) asked, ‘What is Armaniy?’ I replied, ‘He is a Nabatiy from Nabatiy people of mountains who has died. He has made a will to me about his legacy and has left behind his daughter.’ He (the Imam) said to me, ‘Give her one-half.’ I then informed Zurarah about it and he said, ‘He (the Imam) has been protective ( taqiyah ) of you, otherwise, all the legacy belongs to the daughter.’ He (the narrator) has said that I then visited him (the Imam) afterwards and said, ‘I pray to Allah to keep you well, our people think that you have been protective with me.’ He (the Imam) said, ‘No, by Allah I have not been protective of you, but I have been protective against you to be held responsible; has anyone had any knowledge of it?’ I replied, ‘No, no one knows.’ He (the Imam) said, ‘Give her the rest of her legacy.’”
