10-40 (The compiler of the book narrated) that his father - may God be pleased with him - narrated that Sa’ed ibn Abdullah quoted Yaqoob ibn Yazid, on the authority of Hammad ibn Isa, on the authority of Hurayz, on the authority of Zurarah ibn A’ayan that Abi Ja’far al-Baqir (MGB) said, “The Honorable the Exalted God made prayers incumbent and God’s Prophet (MGB) established ten forms of it. These are praying while staying somewhere; praying while on a journey; praying due to fear on three occasions; praying for the eclipse of the Sun; praying for the eclipse of the moon; praying on the two Holy Eids; praying for rain; and praying over the dead.”
