39 - حَدَّثَنا الْحاكِمُ أَبُو مُحَمَّدٍ جَعْفَرُ بْنُ نُعَيْمِ بْنِ شاذان رَضِىَ اللهُ عَنْهُ قالَ: حَدَّثَني عَمِّي مُحَمَّدِ بْنُ شاذانَ، عَنِ الفَضْلِ بْنِ شاذانَ قالَ: سَمِعْتُ الرِّضا عَلَيْهِ السَّلامُ يُحَدَّثُ عَنْ أَبيهِ، عَنْ آبائِهِ، عَنْ عَلِيِ‏ عَلَيْهِمُ السَّلاَمُ: أَنَّ رَسُولَ اللَّهِ‏ صَلَّى اللهُ عَلَيْهِ وَآلِهِ احتَجَمَ وَهُوَصائِمٌ مُحرِمٌ.قالَ مُصَنِّفُ هذا الْكِتاب‏رحمه الله: لَيْسَ هذا الخَبَرُ خِلافاً لِخَبَرِ الَّذِي رَوى‏ عَنْهُ‏ عَلَيْهِ السَّلامُ أَنَّهُ قالَ: (أَفطَرَ الحاجِمُ وَالَمحجُومُ) لانَّ الحِجامَةَ مِمَّا أَمَرَ بِهِ‏ عَلَيْهِ السَّلامُ وَسُنَّةَ وَاستَعمَلَهُ، فَمَعنى‏ قَوْلَهُ‏ عَلَيْهِ السَّلامُ: (أَفطَرَ الحاجِمُ وَالَمحجُومُ) هُوَ: أَنَّهُما دَخَلا بِذلِكَ فِي سُنتَّي وَفِطرَتِي.

30-39 Al-Hakim Abu Muhammad Ja’far ibn Na’eem ibn Shathan - may God be pleased with him - narrated that his uncle Muhammad ibn Shathan quoted on the authority of Fadhl ibn Shathan, “I heard Al-Ridha (s) narrate on the authority of his father, on the authority of his forefathers, on the authority of Ali (s), ‘God’s Prophet (s) performed a phlebotomy even when he was fasting and in the state of ritual consecration for the Hajj.’”The author of this book (Sheikh Sadooq) - may God have Mercy upon him - said, “This tradition is not in contradiction with another tradition quoted on the authority of God’s Prophet (s) which says, ‘Aftar al-Hajim val Mahjoom’ which implies that both those who fast and perform a phlebotomy have entered into my tradition and my nature.”
