6ـ أَحْمَدُ بْنُ مُحَمَّدٍ عَنْ مُحَمَّدِ بْنِ الْحَسَنِ عَنْ مُحَمَّدِ بْنِ عِيسَى عَنْ مُحَمَّدِ بْنِ حَمْزَةَ بْنِ الْقَاسِمِ عَنْ إِبْرَاهِيمَ بْنِ مُوسَى قَالَ أَلْحَحْتُ عَلَى أَبِي الْحَسَنِ الرِّضَا (عَلَيْهِ السَّلام) فِي شَيْ‏ءٍ أَطْلُبُهُ مِنْهُ فَكَانَ يَعِدُنِي فَخَرَجَ ذَاتَ يَوْمٍ لِيَسْتَقْبِلَ وَالِيَ الْمَدِينَةِ وَكُنْتُ مَعَهُ فَجَاءَ إِلَى قُرْبِ قَصْرِ فُلانٍ فَنَزَلَ تَحْتَ شَجَرَاتٍ وَنَزَلْتُ مَعَهُ أَنَا وَلَيْسَ مَعَنَا ثَالِثٌ فَقُلْتُ جُعِلْتُ فِدَاكَ هَذَا الْعِيدُ قَدْ أَظَلَّنَا وَلا وَالله مَا أَمْلِكُ دِرْهَماً فَمَا سِوَاهُ فَحَكَّ بِسَوْطِهِ الارْضَ حَكّاً شَدِيداً ثُمَّ ضَرَبَ بِيَدِهِ فَتَنَاوَلَ مِنْهُ سَبِيكَةَ ذَهَبٍ ثُمَّ قَالَ انْتَفِعْ بِهَا وَاكْتُمْ مَا رَأَيْتَ.

6. Ahmad ibn Muhammad has narrated from from Muhammad ibn al-Hassan from Muhammad ibn ‘Isa from Muhammad ibn Hamza ibn al-Qasim from Ibrahim ibn Musa who has said the following. “I would urge abu al-Hassan al-Rida in a matter that I would demand from him and he would ask to give him time. One day he went out to receive the governor of Madina and I was with him. He came near the castle of so and so and stopped for rest among a few trees. Just the two of us and not a third was there. I said, “May Allah take my soul in service for your cause, this holy is upon us, by Allah, all I have is one Dirham only and nothing else.” He scratched the earth with his whip firmly and with his hand picked up a mold of gold and said, “Use it and keep secret what you just saw.”
