عَلِيُّ بْنُ إِبْرَاهِيمَ عَنْ أَبِيهِ عَنِ ابْنِ أَبِي نَجْرَانَ وَ غَيْرِهِ عَنْ إِسْمَاعِيلَ بْنِ الصَّبَّاحِ قَالَ سَمِعْتُ شَيْخاً يَذْكُرُ عَنْ سَيْفِ بْنِ عَمِيرَةَ قَالَ كُنْتُ عِنْدَ أَبِي الدَّوَانِيقِ فَسَمِعْتُهُ يَقُولُ ابْتِدَاءً مِنْ نَفْسِهِ يَا سَيْفَ بْنَ عَمِيرَةَ لَا بُدَّ مِنْ مُنَادٍ يُنَادِي بِاسْمِ رَجُلٍ مِنْ وُلْدِ أَبِي طَالِبٍ قُلْتُ يَرْوِيهِ أَحَدٌ مِنَ النَّاسِ قَالَ وَ الَّذِي نَفْسِي بِيَدِهِ لَسَمِعَتْ أُذُنِي مِنْهُ يَقُولُ لَا بُدَّ مِنْ مُنَادٍ يُنَادِي بِاسْمِ رَجُلٍ قُلْتُ يَا أَمِيرَ الْمُؤْمِنِينَ إِنَّ هَذَا الْحَدِيثَ مَا سَمِعْتُ بِمِثْلِهِ قَطُّ فَقَالَ لِي يَا سَيْفُ إِذَا كَانَ ذَلِكَ فَنَحْنُ أَوَّلُ مَنْ يُجِيبُهُ أَمَا إِنَّهُ أَحَدُ بَنِي عَمِّنَا قُلْتُ أَيُّ بَنِي عَمِّكُمْ قَالَ رَجُلٌ مِنْ وُلْدِ فَاطِمَةَ (عليها السلام) ثُمَّ قَالَ يَا سَيْفُ لَوْ لَا أَنِّي سَمِعْتُ أَبَا جَعْفَرٍ مُحَمَّدَ بْنَ عَلِيٍّ يَقُولُهُ ثُمَّ حَدَّثَنِي بِهِ أَهْلُ الْأَرْضِ مَا قَبِلْتُهُ مِنْهُمْ وَ لَكِنَّهُ مُحَمَّدُ بْنُ عَلِيٍّ (عليه السلام).


255. Ali Bin Ibrahim, from his father, from Ibn Abu Najraan and someone else, from Ismail Bin Al-Sabbaah who said: I heard an old man mentioning from Saif bin Umair who said, ‘I was in the presence of Abu Al-dawaniq, so I heard him saying, initiating it himself, ‘O saif Bin Umair! It is necessary for a caller to call in the name of a man from the sons of Abu Talib (as)’. I said, ‘Does any one from the people report it?’ He said, ‘By the One in Whose Hand is my soul, my own ears have heard it from him (a.s.) (Abu Jafar (a.s.)) saying: ‘It is a must that a caller calls out in the name of a man’. I said, ‘O commander of the faithful! As for this Hadith, I have not heard similar to it at all’. He said to me, ‘O Saif! If it was like, so we would be the first ones to respond to it. But rather he would be one of the sons of our uncle’. I said, ‘Which son of your uncle?’ He said, ‘A man from the children of Fatima (a.s.)’. He then said, ‘O Saif! Had I not heard it from Abu Ja’far (a.s.) Muhammad Bin Ali (a.s.) saying it, however, if it were narrated to me by the inhabitants of the earth, I would not have accepted it from them, but it is from Muhammad Bin Ali (a.s.)’.
