Hadith #1

9-26 حدثنا أبي رضي الله عنه قال: حدثنا سعد بن عبد الله قال: حدثنا يعقوب ابن يزيد، عن مصعب بن يزيد، عن العوام بن الزبير قال: قال أبوعبد الله عليه السلام: يقبل القائم عليه السلام في خمسة وأربعين رجلا من تسعة أحياء: من حي رجل، ومن حي رجلان ومن حي ثلاثة، ومن حي أربعة، ومن حي خمسة، ومن حي ستة، ومن حي سبعة، ومن حي ثمانية، ومن حي تسعة، ولايزال كذلك حتى يجتمع له العدد

9-26 (The compiler of the book narrated) that his father - may God be pleased with him - narrated that Sa’ed ibn Abdullah quoted Yaqoob ibn Yazid, on the authority of Mus’ab ibn Yazid, on the authority of Al-Awam ibn Zubayr that Abu Abdullah as-Sadiq (MGB) said, “The Riser (MGB) shall come with forty-five men who are from nine tribes. There will be one from one tribe; two from a second tribe; three from a third tribe; four from a fourth tribe; five from a fifth tribe; six from a sixth tribe; seven from a seventh tribe; eight from an eighth tribe, and finally nine from a ninth tribe which adds up to forty-five.”
