3 - قال: أخبرني الشريف الصالح أبو محمد الحسن بن حمزة العلوي الحسيني الطبري رحمه الله قال: حدثنا محمد بن عبد الله بن جعفر الحميري، عن أبيه، عن أحمد بن محمد بن عيسى، عن مروك بن عبيد الكوفي، عن محمد بن زيد الطبري قال: كنت قائما على رأس الرضا علي بن موسى عليهما السلام بخراسان وعنده جماعة من بني هاشم منهم إسحاق بن العباس بن موسى ، فقال له: يا إسحاق بلغني أنكم تقولون: إنا نقول: إن الناس عبيد لنا، لا وقرابتي من رسول الله صلى الله عليه وآله ما قلته قط، ولا سمعته من أحد من آبائي، ولا بلغني عن أحد منهم قاله، لكنا نقول: الناس عبيد لنا في الطاعة ، موال لنا في الدين، فليبلغ الشاهد الغائب.


3. He said: Al-Sharif al-Swaleh Abu Muhammad ibn Hamza al-Alawi al-Husayni al-Tabari, may Allah bless him with mercy, reported to me from Muhammad ibn Abdillah ibn Ja’far al-Himyari, from his father, from Ahmad ibn Muhammad ibn Isa, from Murook ibn Ubaid al-Kufi, from Muhammad ibn Zaid al-Tabari, who said: I was present at the residence of al-Ridha, ‘Ali ibn Musa, peace be upon him, at Khurasan, and a group of Banu Hashim, including Ishaq ibn al-Abbas ibn Musa, was present also. So, addressing Ishaq, (al-Ridha) said: "O Ishaq! I have come to learn that you are telling people that we consider them as our slaves. I swear by my relation with the messenger of Allah, peace be upon him and his progeny, I have never said that! Nor did I hear to that effect from my forefathers, nor has it been conveyed to me from them through anyone. Yes, what we have said is that people are subservient to us in matters of obedience to Allah, loyal to us in religion. So let those present here convey this to those who are absent."
