Kulthum ibn Jabir said, "Ibn az-Zubayr addressed us and said, 'People of Makka, I have heard that there are men of Quraysh who play a game called backgammon. It is done with the left hand. Allah says, 'Wine and gambling.' (5:

90) I swear by Allah that if anyone who plays it is brought before me, I will punish him in his hair and skin, and I will give his booty to the one who brings him to me."

حَدَّثَنَا مُوسَى، قَالَ‏:‏ حَدَّثَنَا رَبِيعَةُ بْنُ كُلْثُومِ بْنِ جَبْرٍ قَالَ‏:‏ حَدَّثَنِي أَبِي قَالَ‏:‏ خَطَبَنَا ابْنُ الزُّبَيْرِ فَقَالَ‏:‏ يَا أَهْلَ مَكَّةَ، بَلَغَنِي عَنْ رِجَالٍ مِنْ قُرَيْشٍ يَلْعَبُونَ بِلُعْبَةٍ يُقَالُ لَهَا‏:‏ النَّرْدَشِيرُ، وَكَانَ أَعْسَرَ، قَالَ اللَّهُ‏:‏ ‏{‏إِنَّمَا الْخَمْرُ وَالْمَيْسِرُ‏}‏، وَإِنِّي أَحْلِفُ بِاللَّهِ‏:‏ لاَ أُوتَى بِرَجُلٍ لَعِبَ بِهَا إِلاَّ عَاقَبْتُهُ فِي شَعْرِهِ وَبَشَرِهِ، وَأَعْطَيْتُ سَلَبَهُ لِمَنْ أَتَانِي بِهِ‏.‏
