A number of our people have narrated from Ahmad ibn Muhammad from ibn Khalid from his father from Muhammad ibn Sinan from al-Husayn from Murazim from his brother who has said the following: “A man once said to abu ‘ Abd Allah, ‘Alayhi al-Salam, ‘A boy is born to me. 5 He (the Imam) said, ‘May Allah enable you to thank the Benefactor, bless you with the gift and make him to grow up to manhood! May Allah grant you the chance to enjoy his virtuous deeds!’”

2. Ali ibn Muhammad ibn Bandar has narrated from Ibrahim ibn Ishaq al-Ahmar from ‘Abd Allah ibn Hammad from abu Maryam al- Ansariy from abu Barzah al-Aslamiy who has said the following: “A child was born to al-Husayn ibn Ali, ‘Alayhi al-Salam, and Quraysh came to congratulate him (the Imam) and said, ‘Congratulations to you for the birth of the rider (the knight).’ He (the Imam) said, ‘What kind of expression is this! Say, “May Allah enable you to thank the Benefactor for the blessed gift, may Allah make him to grow up to manhood and may Allah give you the chance to enjoy his good deeds!”’
