Hadith #6

6- حُمَيْدُ بْنُ زِيَادٍ عَنِ الْحَسَنِ بْنِ مُحَمَّدٍ عَنْ صَفْوَانَ عَنْ عَبْدِ الرَّحْمَنِ بْنِ الْحَجَّاجِ عَمَّنْ حَدَّثَهُ عَنْ أَبِي عَبْدِ اللهِ (عَلَيْهِ السَّلام) قَالَ مَاتَ مَوْلًى لِحَمْزَةَ بْنِ عَبْدِ الْمُطَّلِبِ فَدَفَعَ رَسُولُ اللهِ (صَلَّى اللهُ عَلَيْهِ وَآلِه) مِيرَاثَهُ إِلَى ابْنَةِ حَمْزَةَ. قَالَ الْحَسَنُ فَهَذِهِ الرِّوَايَةُ تَدُلُّ عَلَى أَنَّهُ لَمْ يَكُنْ لِلْمَوْلَى ابْنَةٌ كَمَا تَرْوِي الْعَامَّةُ وَأَنَّ الْمَرْأَةَ أَيْضاً تَرِثُ الْوَلاءَ لَيْسَ كَمَا تَرْوِي الْعَامَّةُ.

6. Humayd ibn Ziyad has narrated from al-Hassan ibn Muhammad from Safwan from ‘Abd al-Rahman ibn al-Hajjaj from those who narrated to him who has narrated the following: “Abu ‘Abd Allah, ‘Alayhi al-Salam, has said, ‘When a mawla of Hamzah ibn ‘Abd al-Muttalib died, the Messenger of Allah, O Allah, grant compensation to Muhammad and his family worthy of their services to Your cause, gave his legacy to the daughter of Hamzah.’” Al-Hassan has said that this proves that the mawla did not have any daughter as al-‘A’ammah narrate, and that women also inherit guardianship contrary to what al-‘A’ammah narrate.
