49 - حَدَّثَنا أَبي رَضِىَ اللهُ عَنْهُ قالَ: حَدَّثَنا سَعْدُ بْنُ عَبْدِ اللَّه قالَ: حَدَّثَنا أَحْمَدُ بْنُ مُحَمَّدِ بْنِ عِيسَى، عَنْ مُحَمَّدِ بْنِ سَهْلٍ، عَنْ أَبيهِ قالَ: سَأَلْت أَبَا الحَسَن الرِّضا عَلَيْهِ السَّلامُ عَنِ الرَّجُلِ يَبقى‏ مِنْ وَجْهِهِ إِذا تَوَضَّأَ [مَوضِعٌ لَم يُصِبهُ الماءِ] فَقالَ: يُجزيهِ أَن يَبُلَّهُ مِن بَعْضِ جَسَدِهِ.

30-49 (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 Muhammad ibn Sahl, on the authority of his father that he had asked Abul Hassan Al-Ridha (s), ‘What should one who has made ablutions do when he thinks that he has not wet a place of his face after he has finished making ablutions?’ The Imam (s) replied, “It suffices that he wets that place with the moisture from other parts of his body.’”
