1. A number of our people have narrated from Ahmad ibn Muhammad from Ali ibn al-Hakam from Ziyad ibn abu al-Hallal who has said the following: “Abu ‘ Abd Allah, ‘Alayhi al-Salam, has said that no one of the prophets and the executors of the will of the prophets remain on earth for more than three days, within which time his Ruh (spirit), bones and flesh are taken to the heaven. People come only to the places where their marks are left. They convey and express their al-Salam from distant places and they hear them nearby in the places where their marks are left.”

2ـ أَبُو عَلِيٍّ الأَشْعَرِيُّ عَنْ عَبْدِ الله بْنِ مُوسَى عَنِ الْحَسَنِ بْنِ عَلِيٍّ الْوَشَّاءِ قَالَ سَمِعْتُ الرِّضَا (عَلَيْهِ السَّلاَم) يَقُولُ إِنَّ لِكُلِّ إِمَامٍ عَهْداً فِي عُنُقِ أَوْلِيَائِهِ وَشِيعَتِهِ وَإِنَّ مِنْ تَمَامِ الْوَفَاءِ بِالْعَهْدِ وَحُسْنِ الأَدَاءِ زِيَارَةَ قُبُورِهِمْ فَمَنْ زَارَهُمْ رَغْبَةً فِي زِيَارَتِهِمْ وَتَصْدِيقاً بِمَا رَغِبُوا فِيهِ كَانَ أَئِمَّتُهُمْ شُفَعَاءَهُمْ يَوْمَ الْقِيَامَةِ.


2. Abu Ali al-Ash’ariy has narrated from ‘Abd Allah ibn Musa from al-Hassan ibn Ali al-Washsha’ who has said the following: “I once heard al-Rida’, ‘Alayhi al-Salam, say, ’The covenant makes all and every friend and followers of every Imam accountable. In order to stand up truly by this covenant, one should visit the gravesites of ’A’immah, ‘Alayhim al-Salam. Those who visit them because of their interest in such visits and to affirm what they are interested in, their Imam will intercede on their behalf on the Day of Judgment.”’

3ـ عِدَّةٌ مِنْ أَصْحَابِنَا عَنْ سَهْلِ بْنِ زِيَادٍ عَنْ أَبِي هَاشِمٍ الْجَعْفَرِيِّ قَالَ بَعَثَ إِلَيَّ أَبُو الْحَسَنِ (عَلَيْهِ السَّلاَم) فِي مَرَضِهِ وَإِلَى مُحَمَّدِ بْنِ حَمْزَةَ فَسَبَقَنِي إِلَيْهِ مُحَمَّدُ بْنُ حَمْزَةَ وَأَخْبَرَنِي مُحَمَّدٌ مَا زَالَ يَقُولُ ابْعَثُوا إِلَى الْحَيْرِ ابْعَثُوا إِلَى الْحَيْرِ فَقُلْتُ لِمُحَمَّدٍ أَ لا قُلْتَ لَهُ أَنَا أَذْهَبُ إِلَى الْحَيْرِ ثُمَّ دَخَلْتُ عَلَيْهِ وَقُلْتُ لَهُ جُعِلْتُ فِدَاكَ أَنَا أَذْهَبُ إِلَى الْحَيْرِ فَقَالَ انْظُرُوا فِي ذَاكَ ثُمَّ قَالَ لِي إِنَّ مُحَمَّداً لَيْسَ لَهُ سِرٌّ مِنْ زَيْدِ بْنِ عَلِيٍّ وَأَنَا أَكْرَهُ أَنْ يَسْمَعَ ذَلِكَ قَالَ فَذَكَرْتُ ذَلِكَ لِعَلِيِّ بْنِ بِلالٍ فَقَالَ مَا كَانَ يَصْنَعُ بِالْحَيْرِ وَهُوَ الْحَيْرُ فَقَدِمْتُ الْعَسْكَرَ فَدَخَلْتُ عَلَيْهِ فَقَالَ لِي اجْلِسْ حِينَ أَرَدْتُ الْقِيَامَ فَلَمَّا رَأَيْتُهُ أَنِسَ بِي ذَكَرْتُ لَهُ قَوْلَ عَلِيِّ بْنِ بِلالٍ فَقَالَ لِي أَ لا قُلْتَ لَهُ إِنَّ رَسُولَ الله (صلَّى اللهُ عَلَيْهِ وَآلِه) كَانَ يَطُوفُ بِالْبَيْتِ وَيُقَبِّلُ الْحَجَرَ وَحُرْمَةُ النَّبِيِّ وَالْمُؤْمِنِ أَعْظَمُ مِنْ حُرْمَةِ الْبَيْتِ وَأَمَرَهُ الله عَزَّ وَجَلَّ أَنْ يَقِفَ بِعَرَفَةَ وَإِنَّمَا هِيَ مَوَاطِنُ يُحِبُّ الله أَنْ يُذْكَرَ فِيهَا فَأَنَا أُحِبُّ أَنْ يُدْعَى الله لِي حَيْثُ يُحِبُّ الله أَنْ يُدْعَى فِيهَا وَذَكَرَ عَنْهُ أَنَّهُ قَالَ وَلَمْ أَحْفَظْ عَنْهُ قَالَ إِنَّمَا هَذِهِ مَوَاضِعُ يُحِبُّ الله أَنْ يُتَعَبَّدَ لَهُ فِيهَا فَأَنَا أُحِبُّ أَنْ يُدْعَى لِي حَيْثُ يُحِبُّ الله أَنْ يُعْبَدَ هَلاَّ قُلْتَ لَهُ كَذَا [وَ كَذَا] قَالَ قُلْتُ جُعِلْتُ فِدَاكَ لَوْ كُنْتُ أُحْسِنُ مِثْلَ هَذَا لَمْ أَرُدَّ الأَمْرَ عَلَيْكَ هَذِهِ أَلْفَاظُ أَبِي هَاشِمٍ لَيْسَتْ أَلْفَاظَهُ.


3. A number of our people have narrated from Sahl ibn Ziyad from abu Hashim al-Ja’fariy who has said the following: “Once, abu al-Hassan, ‘Alayhi al-Salam, during his illness, called me and Muhammad ibn Hamzah. Muhammad ibn Hamzah went to him before me. Muhammad told me that he (the Imam) still says, ‘You must send someone to al-Hayr (shrine of Imam al-Husayn) to pray there so I get well soon.’ I then asked Muhammad, ‘Did you not tell him (the Imam) that I am going to al-Hayr?’ I then went to the Imam and said, ‘I pray to Allah to keep my soul in service for your cause, I am going to al-Hayr.’ He (the Imam) said, ‘You must consider it properly.’ He (the Imam) then said, ‘Muhammad does not possess the secret (belief in the divine authority of Imam) from Zayd ibn Ali, (his father) and I do not like that he hears this.’ He (the narrator) has said that he mentioned this to Ali ibn Bilal. He said, ‘What does he (Imam) want from al-Hayr (shrine of Imam al-Hassan)? He himself is al-Hayr.’ I then went to the army camp near his home. He (the Imam) said, ‘Sit down’, when I wanted to stand up to leave. When I found that he was comfortable with me, I then mentioned to him the words of Ali ibn Bilal. He (the Imam) said to me, ‘Why did you not tell him that the Messenger of Allah, O Allah, grant compensation to Muhammad and his family worthy of their services to Your cause, would perform Tawaf around the House and kiss the Black Stone? The greatness of the prophet and believers is greater than the greatness of the House. Allah, the Most Majestic, the Most Glorious, commanded him to stay in ‘Arafah. Allah loves wherein He loves to be spoken of. I love that prayer is made for me before Allah wherein Allah loves prayers that are made before Him.’ He (the narrator) has said that he mentioned certain things from the Imam that I did not save from him. He (the Imam) said, ‘These are places wherein Allah loves that He is worshipped. I thus love that prayers be made for me wherein Allah loves to be worshipped. Why did you not say so and so to him.’ He, abu Hashim has said that I then said, ‘I pray to Allah to keep my soul in service for your cause. Could I do as good as this (what you said), I would not bring the matter before you.’ These are the words of abu Hashim, not the words of Imam.”
