( ووضع على سرير مجمر وترا ) لئلا يعتريه ندواة الأرض ولينصب عنه الماء عند غسله وفي التجمير تعظيمه وإزالة الرائحة الكريهة والوتر أحب إلى الله من غيره وكيفيته أن يدار بالمجمرة حول السرير مرة أو ثلاثا أو خمسا ولا يزاد عليها كذا في التبيين وفي النهاية والكافي وفتح القدير أو سبعا ولا يزاد عليه (البحر الرائق 2/185)

( و ) تصح إجارة أرض ( للبناء والغرس ) وسائر الانتفاعات كطبخ آجر وخزف ومقيلا ومراحا حتى تلزم الأجرة بالتسليم أمكن زراعتها أم لا بحر (الدر المختار 6/30)
