1. Muĥammad ibn Ja’far Al-Razzāz Al-Kūfi narrated to me from Muĥammad ibn Ĥusain Al-Zayyāt, from Muĥammad ibn Sinān, from Muĥammad ibn Šadaqah, from Šāliĥ Al-Nǐli, who said: Abū ‘Abdillāh (Imam Šādiq (a.s.)) said: Allāh will register the reward of freeing one thousand slaves for a person who goes to (the Ziyārah of) the grave of Ĥusain (a.s.) knowing his rights. He will also earn the reward of offering one thousand saddled and bridled horses in the way of Allāh. The above Ĥadǐth has also been narrated to me through the following chain: My father and Muĥammad ibn Ya’qūb (Al-Kulayni), from Muĥammad ibn Yaĥyā Al-‘Aťťār, from Muĥammad ibn Ĥusain ibn Abil Khaťťāb, from Muĥammad ibn Sinān, from Muĥammad ibn Šadaqah, from Šāliĥ Al-Nǐli, from Abǐ ‘Abdillāh (a.s.).




2 وَ حَدَّثَنِي أَبُو الْعَبَّاسِ الْقُرَشِيُّ عَنْ مُحَمَّدِ بْنِ الْحُسَيْنِ عَنْ مُحَمَّدِ بْنِ إِسْمَاعِيلَ عَنْ صَالِحِ بْنِ عُقْبَةَ عَنْ أَبِي سَعِيدٍ الْمَدَائِنِيِّ قَالَ قُلْتُ لِأَبِي عَبْدِ اللَّهِ (ع) جُعِلْتُ فِدَاكَ آتِي قَبْرَ ابْنِ رَسُولِ اللَّهِ قَالَ نَعَمْ يَا أَبَا سَعِيدٍ ائْتِ قَبْرَ ابْنِ رَسُولِ اللَّهِ أَطْيَبِ الطَّيِّبِينَ [الْأَطْيَبَيْنِ] وَ أَطْهَرَ الْأَطْهَرِينَ وَ أَبَرِّ الْأَبْرَارِ فَإِذَا زُرْتَهُ كَتَبَ اللَّهُ لَكَ عِتْقَ خَمْسٍ وَ عِشْرِينَ رَقَبَةً حَدَّثَنِي أَبِي (رحمه الله) عَنْ عِدَّةٍ مِنْ أَصْحَابِنَا عَنْ سَعْدِ بْنِ عَبْدِ اللَّهِ عَنْ أَحْمَدَ بْنِ مُحَمَّدِ بْنِ عِيسَى عَنْ مُحَمَّدِ بْنِ إِسْمَاعِيلَ عَنْ صَالِحِ بْنِ عُقْبَةَ عَنْ أَبِي سَعِيدٍ الْمَدَائِنِيِّ قَالَ قُلْتُ لِأَبِي عَبْدِ اللَّهِ (ع) وَ ذَكَرَ مِثْلَهُ


2. Abul ‘Abbās Al-Qurashi narrated to me from Muĥammad ibn Ĥusain, from Muĥammad ibn Ismā’ǐl, from Šāliĥ ibn ‘Uqbah, from Abǐ Sa’ǐd Al-Madā`ini, who said: I asked Abā ‘Abdillāh (Imam Šādiq (a.s.)), “May I sacrifice myself for you! Should I go to the grave of the son of the Messenger of Allāh (s.a.a.w.) (Imam Ĥusain (a.s.))?” Imam (a.s.) replied: O Abā Sa’ǐd! Yes! Go to the grave of the son of the Messenger of Allāh (s.a.a.w.), the most blessed of the blessed ones, the most purified of the purified ones, and the most pious of the pious ones; for if you go to his Ziyārah, Allāh will register the reward of freeing twenty-five slaves for you. The above Ĥadǐth has also been narrated to me through the following chain: My father, from a group of our companions, from Sa’d ibn ‘Abdillāh, from Aĥmad ibn Muĥammad ibn ‘Isā, from Muĥammad ibn Ismā’ǐl, from Šāliĥ ibn ‘Uqbah, from Abǐ Sa’ǐd Al-Madā`ini, from Abǐ ‘Abdillāh (a.s.).
