1ـ عَلِيُّ بْنُ إِبْرَاهِيمَ عَنْ أَبِيهِ عَنْ يَحْيَى بْنِ زَكَرِيَّا عَنْ يَزِيدَ بْنِ عُمَرَ بْنِ طَلْحَةَ قَالَ قَالَ لِي أَبُو عَبْدِ الله (عَلَيْهِ السَّلاَم) وَهُوَ بِالْحِيرَةِ أَ مَا تُرِيدُ مَا وَعَدْتُكَ قُلْتُ بَلَى يَعْنِي الذَّهَابَ إِلَى قَبْرِ أَمِيرِ الْمُؤْمِنِينَ صَلَوَاتُ الله عَلَيْهِ قَالَ فَرَكِبَ وَرَكِبَ إِسْمَاعِيلُ وَرَكِبْتُ مَعَهُمَا حَتَّى إِذَا جَازَ الثُّوَيَّةَ وَكَانَ بَيْنَ الْحِيرَةِ وَالنَّجَفِ عِنْدَ ذَكَوَاتٍ بِيضٍ نَزَلَ وَنَزَلَ إِسْمَاعِيلُ وَنَزَلْتُ مَعَهُمَا فَصَلَّى وَصَلَّى إِسْمَاعِيلُ وَصَلَّيْتُ فَقَالَ لإِسْمَاعِيلَ قُمْ فَسَلِّمْ عَلَى جَدِّكَ الْحُسَيْنِ (عَلَيْهِ السَّلاَم) فَقُلْتُ جُعِلْتُ فِدَاكَ أَ لَيْسَ الْحُسَيْنُ بِكَرْبَلاءَ فَقَالَ نَعَمْ وَلَكِنْ لَمَّا حُمِلَ رَأْسُهُ إِلَى الشَّامِ سَرَقَهُ مَوْلىً لَنَا فَدَفَنَهُ بِجَنْبِ أَمِيرِ الْمُؤْمِنِينَ ع.


1. Ali ibn Ibrahim has narrated from his father from Yahya ibn Zakariya from Yazid ibn ‘Umar ibn Talhah who has said the following: “Abu ‘ Abd Allah, ‘Alayhi al-Salam, once said to me, when he was in al-Hirah, ’Do you want to have what I had promised you?’ I said, ‘Yes, I do want to have it,’ meaning visiting the gravesite of ’Amir al-Mu’minin. He (the narrator) has said, ‘He, Isma‘il and I embarked with them and we moved until we passed al-Thuwayyah (a place near al-Kufah). Between al-Hirah and al-Najaf there were white pieces of stones. He (the Imam) disembarked so also did Isma‘il and I. He (the Imam) performed salat (prayer) so also did Isma‘il and I also performed salat (prayer). He (the Imam) said to Isma‘il, ‘Stand up and offer al-Salam to your great grandfather, al-Husayn, ‘Alayhi al-Salam .’ I then asked, ‘I pray to Allah to keep my soul in service for your cause, is not al-Husayn, ‘Alayhi al-Salam, in Karbala 5 ?’ He (the Imam) replied, ‘That is true but when they were taking his head to al-Sham one of our friends stealthily took the head away from them and buried it beside ’Amir al-Mu’minin, ‘Alayhi al-Salam.’”

2. A number of our people have narrated from Sahl ibn Ziyad from Ibrahim ibn ‘Uqbah from al-Hassan al-Khazzaz from al-Washsha’ abu al-Faraj from Aban ibn Taghlib who has said the following: “I once was with abu ‘Abd Allah, ‘Alayhi al-Salam, when he passed by the backside of al-Kufah. He disembarked for two Rak‘at salat (prayer), then he moved forward a little and performed two Rak‘at salat (prayer), then he moved a little, then disembarked and performed two Rak‘at salat (prayer), then he said, ‘This is the gravesite of ’Amir al-Mu’minin, ‘Alayhi al-Salam.’ I then asked, ‘I pray to Allah to keep my soul in service for Your cause, what about the other two places where you performed salat (prayer). He (the Imam) replied, ‘One was the place of the head of (Imam) al-Husayn, ‘Alayhi al- Salam, and the place of the house of al-QaTm, ‘Alayhi al-Salam.’”
