35- حَدَّثَنا أَبي رَضِىَ اللهُ عَنْهُ قالَ: حَدَّثَنا سَعْدُ بْنُ عَبْدِ اللَّه قالَ: حَدَّثَنا أَحْمَدُ بْنُ مُحَمَّدِبْنِ عِيسَى، عَنِ الحَسَن بْنِ عَلِى الوَشَّاء بْنِ بِنْتِ إِلياسَ، عَنْ أَبي الحَسَن الرِّضا عَلَيْهِ السَّلامُ أَنَّهُ قالَ: إِذَا أُهِلَّ هِلالُ ذِي الْحِجَّةِ وَنَحْنُ بِالْمَدِينَةِ لَمْ يَكُنْ لَنَا أَنْ نُحْرِمَ إِلا بِالْحَجِّ لانَّا نُحْرِمُ مِنَ الشَّجَرَةِ وَهُوَالَّذِي وَقَّتَ رَسُولُ اللَّهِ‏ صَلَّى اللهُ عَلَيْهِ وَآلِهِ وَأَنْتُمْ إِذَا قَدِمْتُمْ مِنَ الْعِرَاقِ وَأُهِلَّ الْهِلالُ فَلَكُمْ أَنْ تَعْتَمِرُوا لانَّ بَيْنَ أَيْدِيكُمْ ذَاتَ عِرْقٍ وَغَيْرَهَا مِمَّا وَقَّتَ لَكُمْ رَسُولُ اللَّهِ‏ صَلَّى اللهُ عَلَيْهِ وَآلِهِ فَقَالَ لَهُ الْفَضْلُ: فَلِيَ الآْنَ أَنْ أَتَمَتَّعَ وَقَدْ طُفْتُ بِالْبَيْتِ فَقَالَ لَهُ نَعَمْ فَذَهَبَ بِهَا مُحَمَّدُ بْنُ جَعْفَرٍ إِلَى سُفْيَانَ بْنِ عُيَيْنَةَ وَأَصْحَابِ سُفْيَانَ فَقَالَ لَهُمْ إِنَّ فُلاناً قَالَ كَذَا وَكَذَا فَشَنَّعَ عَلَى أَبِي الْحَسَنِ‏ عَلَيْهِ السَّلامُ.قالَ مُصَنِّفُ هذا الْكِتاب‏رحمه الله: سُفْيانُ بْنُ عُيَينَةَ لَقِيَ الصَّادِق‏ عَلَيْهِ السَّلامُ وَرَوى‏ عَنْهُ وَبَقِيَ إِلى أَيَّام الرِّضا عَلَيْهِ السَّلامُ.

30-35 (The author of the book narrated) my father - may God be pleased with him - narrated that Sa’d ibn Abdullah quoted on the authority of Ahmad ibn Muhammad ibn Isa, on the authority of Al-Hassan ibn Ali al-Washsha’ ibn Bint Elias, on the authority of Abil Hassan Al-Ridha (s), “If we are in Medina when we see the moon indicating the arrival of the (Arabic) month of Dhul-Hajja, we should depart from there in the state of ritual consecration for the Hajj (Al-Kiraan ), since we must enter the state of ritual consecration from the Al-Shajara Mosque. God’s Prophet (s) has established that place as the station for entering ritual consecration for the Hajj (‘Miqat). For those of you who come here from Iraq and see the moon indicating the (Arabic) month of Dhul-Hajja you must perform the ‘Umra (minor) pilgrimage since the station of entering the state of ritual consecration for the Hajj, which God’s Prophet (s) has established for you is in ‘Zat-Irq and other places. That is ahead of you near Medina.”Al-Fadhl (ibn Sahl Thul-Riasatayn) said, “Can I leave the state of ritual consecration for the Hajj now that I have performed my circumambulations around the House (of God) and performed the ‘Tamatu (major) Hajj pilgrimage?” The Imam (s) told him, “Yes.” Muhammad ibn Ja’far expressed this to Sufyan ibn Oyayna and his companions and told them, “So and so has said this.” Sufyan disapproved of what Abul Hassan Al-Ridha (s) had said.The author of this book (Sheikh Sadooq) - may God have Mercy upon him - said, “Sofyan ibn Oyayna has met As-Sadiq (s) and narrated traditions on his (s) authority. He lived until the era of Al-Ridha (s).
