1. Muhammad Bin Muhammad Bin Asaam Al Kulayni narrated to us, from Muhammad Bin Yaqoub Al Kulayni, from Ali Bin Muhammad, from Abu Ali Muhammad Bin Ismail son of Musa (a.s.) Bin Ja’far (a.s.) Bin Muhammad (a.s.) Bin Ali (a.s.) Bin Al-Husayn (a.s.) Bin Ali (a.s.) Bin Abu Talib (a.s.), from his (a.s.) father (a.s.), from his (a.s.) forefathers (a.s.), from Muhammad (a.s.) Bin Ali Al-Baqir (a.s.) having said: ‘There used to be for my (a.s.) father (a.s.), in a place of his (a.s.) Prostrations (forehead), effects of swelling, and he (a.s.) used to have it cut off twice during the year, in each time, five calluses. Thus, he (a.s.) was named as ‘Zul-Safanaat’ due to that’.
