1 – Muhammad b. Ya`qub from Muhammad b. Yahya from al-`Amraki b. `Ali from `Ali b. Ja`far from his brother Musa b. Ja`far عليه السلام.  He said: I asked him about the man and the woman, is it appropriate for them to insert the medicine while they are fasting?  He said: There is no harm.

And the Shaykh narrated it by his isnad from `Ali b. Ja`far.

And al-Himyari narrated it in Qurb al-Isnad from `Abdullah b. al-Hasan from his grandfather `Ali b. Ja`far likewise.

Translator’s note: The medicine here is understood to be referring to an enema, which is inserted into the anus.
