عنه، عن أبيه، عن حماد وصفوان وابن المغيرة، عن معاوية بن عمار عن أبي بصير، عن أبي عبد الله عليه السلام، قال: إذا قال العبد: " يا الله، يا ربي " حتى ينقطع النفس، قال له الرب: سل ما حاجتك. وفي روايه أبي بصير قال: قلت لابي عبد الله عليه السلام: قول الله عزوجل في كتابه " وحنانا من لدنا "، قال: انه كان يحيى إذا دعا قال في دعائه: " يا رب يا الله " ناداه الله من السماء لبيك يا يحيى سل حاجتك.

From him, from his father, from Hamaad and Safwaan and Ibn Al Mugheira, from Muawiya Bin Amaar, from Abu Baseer, (It has been narrated) from Abu Abdullah (asws) having said: ‘When the servant says, ‘O Allah (azwj)! O my Lord (azwj)!’ until his breath is cut off, the Lord (azwj) Says to him: “Ask what your need is”. And in a report of Abu Baseer who said, ‘I said to Abu Abdullah (asws), ‘The Words of Allah (azwj) Mighty and Majestic in His (azwj) Book [19:13] And tenderness from Us, he (asws) said: ‘It was Yahya (as) when he (as) supplicated, said in his (as) supplication, ‘O Lord (azwj)! O Allah (azwj)!’ Allah (azwj) Called out to him (as) from the sky: “O Yahya (as), here I (azwj) am! Ask your (as) need”.
