Hadith #1

حدثنا أحمد بن محمد بن عبد الرحمن المقري، قال: حدثنا أبو عمرو محمد بن جعفر المقري الجرجاني، قال: حدثنا أبو بكر محمد بن الحسن الموصلي ببغداد، قال: حدثنا محمد بن عاصم الطريفي، قال: حدثنا أبو زيد عياش بن يزيد بن الحسن بن علي الكحال مولى زيد بن علي، قال: حدثنا أبي - يزيد بن الحسن - قال: حدثني موسى بن جعفر عليهما السلام قال: [قال الصادق جعفر بن محمد عليهما السلام:] من صلى على النبي صلى الله عليه وآله فمعناه أني أنا على الميثاق والوفاء الذي قبلت حين قوله: ألست بربكم قالوا بلى.

1. We were told by Ahmad bin Muhammed bin Abdul-Rahman al-Maqarri, that he said: We were told by Abu Amru, Muhammed bin Ja’far al-Maqarri al-Jarjani, that he said: We were told by Abu Bakr, Muhammed bin Hasan al-Mosuli in Baghdad, that he said: We were told by Muhammed bin ‘Asim al-Turayfi, that he said: We were told by Abu Zaid, ‘Ayyash bin Yazid bin Hasan bin Ali al-Kahhal, the servant of Zaid bin Ali, that he said: We were told by my father, Yazid bin Hasan, that he said: I was told by Musa bin Ja’far, peace be upon them both, that he said: Al-Sadiq, Ja’far bin Muhammed, peace be upon them both, said: The one who (recites the prayer in which one) sends blessings upon the Prophet, Allah’s blessings be upon him and his Family, its meaning is: Indeed, I am on the covenant and the loyalty which I have accepted during His saying: «Am I not your Lord» to which they said: «Sure».
