[1]  وَذَكَرَ الْحَاكِمُ في الْمُنْتَقَى لو تَحَرَّكَتْ سِنُّ رَجُلٍ وَخَافَ سُقُوطُهَا فَشَدَّهَا بِالذَّهَبِ أو بِالْفِضَّةِ لم يَكُنْ بِهِ بَأْسٌ عِنْدَ أبي حَنِيفَةَ وَأَبِي يُوسُفَ رَحِمَهُمَا اللَّهُ تَعَالَى وَرَوَى الْحَسَنُ عن أبي حَنِيفَةَ رَحِمَهُ اللَّهُ تَعَالَى أَنَّهُ فَرَّقَ بين السِّنِّ وَالْأَنْفِ فقال في السِّنِّ لَا بَأْسَ بِأَنْ يَشُدَّهَا بِالذَّهَبِ وفي الْأَنْفِ كُرِهَ ذلك كَذَا في الْمُحِيطِ (الفتاوى الهندية ج 5 ص 336 الرشيدية)
