66. Muhammad Bin Yahya, from Ahmad Bin Muhammad Bin Isa, from Ali Bin Al-Hakam, from Ismail Bin Abd Al-Khaliq who said: ‘I heard Abu Abdullah (asws) saying to Abu Ja’far Al-Ahwal, and I was listening: ‘Did you go to Al-Basra?’ He said, ‘Yes’. He (asws) said: ‘How did you see the hastening of the people to this matter and their entering in it to be?’ He said, ‘By Allah (azwj), they are few, and they have done it but that is little’. He (asws) said: ‘It is on you to (approach) the juveniles for they are quick to every good’. Then he (asws) said: ‘What are the people of Al-Basra saying regarding this Verse: ‘[42:23] Say: I do not ask of you any reward for it but love for my near relatives”. I said, ‘May I be sacrificed for you (asws), they are saying that it is for the near relatives of the Rasool (saww) of Allah (azwj)’. He (asws) said: ‘They lie. But rather it Descended with regards to us (asws) especially, regarding the People (asws) of the Household, regarding Ali (asws), and Fatima (asws), and Al-Hassan (asws), and Al-Husayn (asws) the ones of the Cloak (As’haab Al-Kisaa)’.
