1. Muhammad Bin Ali Majaylawiya narrated to us, from his uncle Muhammad Bin Abu Al Qasim, from Ahmad Abu Abdullah Al Barqy, from his father, from the one who mentioned it, from Al Rabie a companions of Al Mansour, said, ‘One day, Al-Mansour (the Caliph) said to Abu Abdullah (a.s.), and a fly had fallen upon Al-Mansour, so he drove it away from himself.
