591. Ali Bin Ibrahim, from his father, from Al-Hassan Bin Mahboub, from Malik Bin Atiyya, from Abu Hamza Al-Thumaly, who has said: ‘Abu Ja’far (a.s.) said that: ‘One day Ibrahim (as) went out on a journey by a camel, so he (as) passed by a desert from the earth and there was a man who was standing in Prayer whose length had blocked the sky from the earth, and his clothing was his hair. Ibrahim (as) paused by him and was astounded from him and sat down awaiting him to be free from his Prayer. So when it became prolonged, he (as) moved him with his (as) hand and said to him; ‘I (as) have a need, so shorten it’. He (a.s.) said: ‘So the man shortened it and sat with Ibrahim (as). Ibrahim (as) said to him: ‘Who are you Praying to?’ He said, ‘To the God of Ibrahim (as)’. He (as) said to him: ‘And Who is the God of Ibrahim (as)?’ He said, ‘The One Who (azwj) Created me’. Ibrahim (as) said to him: ‘You have caused me (as) to wonder, and I (as) would love to make you a brother for the Sake of Allah (azwj). Where is your house, if I (as) intend to visit you and meet you?’ The man said to him, ‘My house is behind this drop’ – and he indicated by his hand to the sea, ‘and my Prayer Place is this place. You (as) will see me here if you (as) want me, Allah (azwj) Willing’. He (a.s.) said: ‘Then the man said to Ibrahim (as), ‘You (as) have a need?’. So Ibrahim (as) said: ‘Yes’. He said to him (as), ‘And what is it?’ He (as) said, ‘Supplicate to Allah (azwj) and I (as) shall say ‘Ameen’ to your supplication, and I (as) will supplicate and you say ‘Ameen’ over my supplication’. So the man said, ‘So what is it that we are supplicating for to Allah (azwj)?’ Ibrahim (as) said: ‘For the sinner from the Believers’. So the man said, ‘No’. Ibrahim (as) said: ‘And why not?’ He said, ‘Because I have been supplicating to Allah (azwj) for the past three years with a supplication, I have never seen its Answer until now, and I am ashamed from Allah (azwj) the High that I should supplicate (for more) until I know that He (azwj) has Answered me’. Ibrahim (as) said: ‘So what is it that you supplicated for?’ The man said to him (as), ‘I was in this Prayer Place one day when a young boy passed by and I saw a wonderful light emerging from his (as) forehead and two locks of hair behind him (as), and with him (as) were cows that he (as) was herding as if they had been painted with oil, and sheep which he (as) was herding as if they were energetic and healthy. What I saw astounded me, so I said to him (as), ‘O young boy! To whom do these cows and sheep belong to?’ He (as) said to me: ‘To Ibrahim (as)’. So I said, ‘And who are you (as)?’ He (as) said: ‘I (as) am Ismail Bin Ibrahim (as), friend of the Beneficent’. So I supplicated to Allah (azwj) Mighty and Majestic, and asked Him (azwj) to Show me His (azwj) friend’. Ibrahim (as) said to him: ‘So I (as) am Ibrahim (as), friend of the Beneficent, and that young boy is my (as) son (as)’. The man said to him (as) due to that, ‘The Praise is due to Allah (azwj) Who Answered my supplication’. Then the man kissed the two eyes of Ibrahim (as) and his (as) neck, then said, ‘But now, arise and supplicate until I say ‘Ameen’ over your supplication’. So Ibrahim (as) for the believing men, and the believing women, and the sinners from that day, to be Forgiven, and Allah (azwj) to be pleased with them. And the man said ‘Ameen’ over that supplication. Abu Ja’far (a.s.) said: ‘So the supplication of Ibrahim (as) will reach the Believers, the sinners from our (a.s.) Shites up to the Day of Judgement’.
