حَدَّثَنَا عَبْدُ الأَعْلَى بْنُ حَمَّادٍ، حَدَّثَنَا سُفْيَانُ، عَنِ ابْنِ عَجْلاَنَ، عَنْ سَعِيدِ بْنِ أَبِي سَعِيدٍ، عَنْ أَبِي هُرَيْرَةَ، أَنَّ رَجُلاً، كَانَ يَسُبُّ أَبَا بَكْرٍ وَسَاقَ نَحْوَهُ ‏.‏ قَالَ أَبُو دَاوُدَ وَكَذَلِكَ رَوَاهُ صَفْوَانُ بْنُ عِيسَى عَنِ ابْنِ عَجْلاَنَ، كَمَا قَالَ سُفْيَانُ ‏.‏
