4ـ عِدَّةٌ مِنْ أَصْحَابِنَا عَنْ سَهْلِ بْنِ زِيَادٍ عَنْ عَلِيِّ بْنِ أَسْبَاطٍ عَنِ الْحَسَنِ بْنِ الْجَهْمِ قَالَ قُلْتُ لأبِي الْحَسَنِ (عَلَيهِ السَّلام) لا تَنْسَنِي مِنَ الدُّعَاءِ قَالَ أَ وَتَعْلَمُ أَنِّي أَنْسَاكَ قَالَ فَتَفَكَّرْتُ فِي نَفْسِي وَقُلْتُ هُوَ يَدْعُو لِشِيعَتِهِ وَأَنَا مِنْ شِيعَتِهِ قُلْتُ لا لا تَنْسَانِي قَالَ وَكَيْفَ عَلِمْتَ ذَلِكَ قُلْتُ إِنِّي مِنْ شِيعَتِكَ وَإِنَّكَ لَتَدْعُو لَهُمْ فَقَالَ هَلْ عَلِمْتَ بِشَيْ‏ءٍ غَيْرِ هَذَا قَالَ قُلْتُ لا قَالَ إِذَا أَرَدْتَ أَنْ تَعْلَمَ مَا لَكَ عِنْدِي فَانْظُرْ إِلَى مَا لِي عِنْدَكَ.

4. A number of our people have narrated from Sahl ibn Ziyad from Ali ibn Asbat from al-Hassan ibn al-Jahm who has said the following: “Once I said to abu al-Hassan (a.s.) ‘Do not forget me in your prayers.’ The Imam asked, ‘How do you know I forget you?’ I (the narrator) then thought in my soul and said to myself that he (Imam) prays for his Shi’a (followers) and I am a Shi’a. I then said to the Imam, ‘I know, you do not forget me in your prayers.’ The Imam asked, ‘How did you find out?’ I said, ‘You pray for your Shi’a and I am your Shi’a.’ The Imam asked, ‘Did you find out by any means other than that?’ I said, ‘No.’ The Imam said, ‘If you like to know what I have for you, see what you have for me in your heart.’”
