26-16 Abu Mansoor Ahmad ibn Ibrahim al-Khori narrated that Zayd ibn Muhammad al-Baghdadi quoted on the authority of Abul Qasim Abdullah Muhammad al-Ta’ee at Basra, on the authority of his father, on the authority of Ali ibn Musa Al-Ridha (s), on the authority of his father (s), on the authority of his forefathers that a man invited Ali ibn AbiTalib (s) to his house. The Imam (s) accepted upon the fulfillment of three conditions. The man said, ‘O Commander of the Faithful! What are they?’ The Imam (s) said, ‘They are that you bring nothing for me from the outside; that you do not deny me of anything that is in the house; and that you do not burden your wife on my behalf.’ The man said, ‘Fine.’ Ali ibn Abi Talib (s) accepted his invitation.
