1. Ali has narrated from his father from ibn abu ‘Umayr from al-Husayn ibn ‘Uthman from Darih who has said the following: “I heard abu ’Abd Allah, ‘Alayhi al-Salam, say, ‘Ali ibn al-Husayn, ‘Alayhi al-Salam, has said, “Abu Sa’eed al-Khudriy, one of the companions of the Messenger of Allah, was a straightforward person. He remained in dying condition for three days. His people gave him a bath and carried him to the place where he would say his prayers; then he died.’””

5ـ مُحَمَّدُ بْنُ يَحْيَى عَنْ مُوسَى بْنِ الْحَسَنِ عَنْ سُلَيْمَانَ الْجَعْفَرِيِّ قَالَ رَأَيْتُ أَبَا الْحَسَنِ يَقُولُ لابْنِهِ الْقَاسِمِ قُمْ يَا بُنَيَّ فَاقْرَأْ عِنْدَ رَأْسِ أَخِيكَ وَالصَّافَّاتِ صَفّاً حَتَّى تَسْتَتِمَّهَا فَقَرَأَ فَلَمَّا بَلَغَ أَ هُمْ أَشَدُّ خَلْقاً أَمْ مَنْ خَلَقْنا قَضَى الْفَتَى فَلَمَّا سُجِّيَ وَخَرَجُوا أَقْبَلَ عَلَيْهِ يَعْقُوبُ بْنُ جَعْفَرٍ فَقَالَ لَهُ كُنَّا نَعْهَدُ الْمَيِّتَ إِذَا نُزِلَ بِهِ يُقْرَأُ عِنْدَهُ يس. وَالْقُرْآنِ الْحَكِيمِ وَصِرْتَ تَأْمُرُنَا بِالصَّافَّاتِ فَقَالَ يَا بُنَيَّ لَمْ يَقْرَأْ عَبْدٌ مَكْرُوبٌ مِنْ مَوْتٍ قَطُّ إِلاَّ عَجَّلَ الله رَاحَتَهُ.


5. Muhammad ibn Yahya has narrated from Musa ibn al-Hassan from Sulayman al-Jafariy who has said the following: “I heard abu al-Hassan, ‘Alayhi al-Salam, say to his son al-Qasim, ‘ Son, stand up and recite Surah thirty-seven (of the Holy Quran), near the head of your brother, to the end.’ Al-Qasim began to recite, when he reached the passage, ‘Is their creation more powerful or those whom We have created’ (37:11) the young man passed away. When his body was prepared for burial they came out and Ya’qub ibn Ja’far turned to him (the Imam) saying, ‘ We would rather recite Surah 36 and now you command us to recite Surah 37.’ The Imam said, “ Son, if one facing distress in dying condition recites it, Allah expedites relief for him.’”
