الْحُسَيْنُ بْنُ مُحَمَّدٍ وَ مُحَمَّدُ بْنُ يَحْيَى جَمِيعاً عَنْ مُحَمَّدِ بْنِ سَالِمِ بْنِ أَبِي سَلَمَةَ عَنِ الْحَسَنِ بْنِ شَاذَانَ الْوَاسِطِيِّ قَالَ كَتَبْتُ إِلَى أَبِي الْحَسَنِ الرِّضَا (عليه السلام) أَشْكُو جَفَاءَ أَهْلِ وَاسِطٍ وَ حَمْلَهُمْ عَلَيَّ وَ كَانَتْ عِصَابَةٌ مِنَ الْعُثْمَانِيَّةِ تُؤْذِينِي فَوَقَّعَ بِخَطِّهِ إِنَّ اللَّهَ تَبَارَكَ وَ تَعَالَى أَخَذَ مِيثَاقَ أَوْلِيَائِنَا عَلَى الصَّبْرِ فِي دَوْلَةِ الْبَاطِلِ فَاصْبِرْ لِحُكْمِ رَبِّكَ فَلَوْ قَدْ قَامَ سَيِّدُ الْخَلْقِ لَقَالُوا يا وَيْلَنا مَنْ بَعَثَنا مِنْ مَرْقَدِنا هذا ما وَعَدَ الرَّحْمنُ وَ صَدَقَ الْمُرْسَلُونَ.


347. Al-Husayn Bin Muhammad, and Muhammad Bin Yahya, together from Muhammad Bin Saalim Bin Abu Salma, from Al-Hassan Bin Shazaan Al-Wasity who said: I wrote to Abu Al-Hassan Al-Reza (asws) complaining of my alienation from the people of ‘وَاسِطٍ’, and their burdening me, and they were from the Uthmaniyya group, hurting me’. So a reply came in his (asws) handwriting: ‘Surely Allah (azwj) has Taken a Covenant from our (asws) friends for the patience during the government of the falsehood. So be patient for the Judgement of your Lord (azwj). So when the chief of the creatures (Al-Qaim (asws)) makes a stand, they would say: “[36:52] They shall say: O woe to us! who has raised us up from our sleeping-place? This is what the Beneficent Allah promised and the messengers told the truth”.’
