1- عِدَّةٌ مِنْ أَصْحَابِنَا عَنْ أَحْمَدَ بْنِ مُحَمَّدٍ عَنِ الْحُسَيْنِ بْنِ سَعِيدٍ عَنِ الْقَاسِمِ بْنِ مُحَمَّدٍ عَنْ سُلَيْمٍ مَوْلَى طِرْبَالٍ عَنْ حَرِيزٍ عَنْ أَبِي عَبْدِ اللهِ (عَلَيْهِ السَّلام) فِي رَجُلٍ كَانَ يَطَأُ جَارِيَةً لَهُ وَأَنَّهُ كَانَ يَبْعَثُهَا فِي حَوَائِجِهِ وَأَنَّهَا حَبِلَتْ وَأَنَّهُ [اتَّهَمَهَا وَ] بَلَغَهُ عَنْهَا فَسَادٌ فَقَالَ أَبُو عَبْدِ اللهِ (عَلَيْهِ السَّلام) إِذَا هِيَ وَلَدَتْ أَمْسَكَ الْوَلَدَ وَلا يَبِيعُهُ وَيَجْعَلُ لَهُ نَصِيباً مِنْ دَارِهِ [وَمَالِهِ] قَالَ فَقِيلَ لَهُ رَجُلٌ يَطَأُ جَارِيَةً لَهُ وَإِنَّهُ لَمْ يَكُنْ يَبْعَثُهَا فِي حَوَائِجِهِ وَإِنَّهُ اتَّهَمَهَا وَحَبِلَتْ فَقَالَ إِذَا هِيَ وَلَدَتْ أَمْسَكَ الْوَلَدَ وَلا يَبِيعُهُ وَيَجْعَلُ لَهُ نَصِيباً مِنْ دَارِهِ وَمَالِهِ وَلَيْسَتْ هَذِهِ مِثْلَ تِلْكَ.

1. A number of our people have narrated from Ahmad ibn Muhammad from al-Husayn ibn Sa‘id from al-Qasim ibn Muhammad ibn Muhammad from Salim Mawla Tirbal from Hariz who has narrated the following: “This is about the case of a man who goes to bed with his slave-girl and sends her to do certain works for him. She becomes pregnant; he [accuses] her and receives news of her misbehaving. He (the Imam) said, ‘When she gives birth he must keep the child and must not sell him but assign for him a share from his house [and assets].’ It was then asked about a man who goes to bed with his slave-girl, does not send her to work for him but he accuses her of misbehaving and she becomes pregnant. He (the Imam) said, ‘When she gives birth he must keep the child and must not sell but assign a share for the child from his house and assets. This is not like that.’”
