Back to book

حَدَّثَنِی مُحَمَّدُ بْنُ الْحَسَنِ قَالَ حَدَّثَنِی مُحَمَّدُ بْنُ الْحَسَنِ الصَّفَّارُ عَنْ أَحْمَدَ بْنِ مُحَمَّدٍ عَنْ أَبِی هَمَّامٍ إِسْمَاعِیلَ بْنِ هَمَّامٍ عَنْ أَبِی الْحَسَنِ الرِّضَا ع قَالَ: دَعْوَهُ الْعَبْدِ سِرّاً دَعْوَهً وَاحِدَهً تَعْدِلُ سَبْعِینَ دَعْوَهً عَلَانِیَهً.
