سَهْلُ بْنُ زِيَادٍ عَنِ الْحَسَنِ بْنِ عَلِيٍّ عَنْ كَرَّامٍ عَنْ أَبِي الصَّامِتِ عَنْ أَبِي عَبْدِ اللَّهِ (عليه السلام) قَالَ مَرَرْتُ أَنَا وَ أَبُو جَعْفَرٍ (عليه السلام) عَلَى الشِّيعَةِ وَ هُمْ مَا بَيْنَ الْقَبْرِ وَ الْمِنْبَرِ فَقُلْتُ لِأَبِي جَعْفَرٍ (عليه السلام) شِيعَتُكَ وَ مَوَالِيكَ جَعَلَنِيَ اللَّهُ فِدَاكَ قَالَ أَيْنَ هُمْ فَقُلْتُ أَرَاهُمْ مَا بَيْنَ الْقَبْرِ وَ الْمِنْبَرِ فَقَالَ اذْهَبْ بِي إِلَيْهِمْ فَذَهَبَ فَسَلَّمَ عَلَيْهِمْ ثُمَّ قَالَ وَ اللَّهِ إِنِّي لَأُحِبُّ رِيحَكُمْ وَ أَرْوَاحَكُمْ فَأَعِينُوا مَعَ هَذَا بِوَرَعٍ وَ اجْتِهَادٍ إِنَّهُ لَا يُنَالُ مَا عِنْدَ اللَّهِ إِلَّا بِوَرَعٍ وَ اجْتِهَادٍ وَ إِذَا ائْتَمَمْتُمْ بِعَبْدٍ فَاقْتَدُوا بِهِ أَمَا وَ اللَّهِ إِنَّكُمْ لَعَلَى دِينِي وَ دِينِ آبَائِي إِبْرَاهِيمَ وَ إِسْمَاعِيلَ وَ إِنْ كَانَ هَؤُلَاءِ عَلَى دِينِ أُولَئِكَ فَأَعِينُوا عَلَى هَذَا بِوَرَعٍ وَ اجْتِهَادٍ.


329. Sahl Bin Ziyad, from Al-Hassan Bin Ali, from Karraam, from Abu Al-Saamat, who has narrated the following: Abu Abdullah (a.s.) having said: ‘I (a.s.) and Abu Ja’far (a.s.) passed by the Shites whilst they were in between the Grave and the Pulpit (of the Rasool Allah (saww)). So I (a.s.) said to Abu Ja’far (a.s.): ‘May I (a.s.) be sacrificed for you (a.s.), these are your (a.s.) Shites and your (a.s.) friends’. He (a.s.) said: ‘Where are they?’ I (a.s.) said: ‘In between the Grave and the Pulpit’. He (a.s.) said: ‘So come with me (a.s.) to them’. So he (a.s.) went and greeted them, then said: ‘I (a.s.) love your aromas, and your souls, so support this with piety and struggle. What is with Allah (azwj) cannot be achieved except by piety and struggle, and if you follow a servant (an Imam (a.s.)), so follow him (emulate his (a.s.) deeds). But, by Allah (azwj), all of you are upon my (a.s.) Religion, and the Religion of my (a.s.) forefather Ibrahim (as) and Ismail (as), and if these were upon a Religion so they supported this by piety and struggle’.
