حَدَّثَنِی مُحَمَّدُ بْنُ مُوسَی بْنِ الْمُتَوَکِّلِ قَالَ حَدَّثَنِی أَبُو الْحَسَنِ الْأَسَدِیُّ قَالَ حَدَّثَنِی مُحَمَّدُ بْنُ الْحُسَیْنِ الصُّوفِیُّ عَنْ یُوسُفَ بْنِ عَقِیلٍ عَنْ إِسْحَاقَ بْنِ رَاهَوَیْهِ قَالَ: لَمَّا وَافَی أَبُو الْحَسَنِ الرِّضَا ع نَیْسَابُورَ فَأَرَادَ أَنْ یَرْحَلَ مِنْهَا إِلَی الْمَأْمُونِ اجْتَمَعَ إِلَیْهِ أَصْحَابُ الْحَدِیثِ فَقَالُوا لَهُ یَا ابْنَ رَسُولِ اللَّهِ تَرْحَلُ عَنَّا وَ لَا تُحَدِّثُنَا بِحَدِیثٍ نَسْتَفِیدُهُ مِنْکَ وَ کَانَ قَدْ قَعَدَ فِی الْعَمَّارِیَّهِ فَاطَّلَعَ رَأْسَهُ وَ قَالَ سَمِعْتُ أَبِی مُوسَی بْنَ جَعْفَرٍ یَقُولُ سَمِعْتُ أَبِی جَعْفَرَ بْنَ مُحَمَّدٍ یَقُولُ سَمِعْتُ أَبِی مُحَمَّدَ بْنَ عَلِیٍّ یَقُولُ سَمِعْتُ أَبِی عَلِیَّ بْنَ الْحُسَیْنِ یَقُولُ سَمِعْتُ أَبِی الْحُسَیْنَ بْنَ عَلِیٍّ یَقُولُ سَمِعْتُ أَبِی عَلِیَّ بْنَ أَبِی طَالِبٍ یَقُولُ سَمِعْتُ رَسُولَ اللَّهِ ص یَقُولُ سَمِعْتُ جَبْرَئِیلَ یَقُولُ سَمِعْتُ اللَّهَ عَزَّ وَ جَلَّ یَقُولُ لَا إِلَهَ إِلَّا اللَّهُ حِصْنِی فَمَنْ دَخَلَ حِصْنِی أَمِنَ مِنْ عَذَابِی فَلَمَّا مَرَّتِ الرَّاحِلَهُ نَادَی بِشُرُوطِهَا وَ أَنَا مِنْ شُرُوطِهَا.


1. When Imam Reza (a.s.) reached Nishapur and intended to go to Mamoon, the narrators of traditions gathered around him and said, “O son of Allah’s Messenger! You are leaving us without having said any tradition, which could benefit us.” Imam (a.s.) was seated in the camel saddle. He put his head out and said, “I heard my father, Musa Ibne Ja’far (a.s.), who says he heard from his father, Ja’far Ibne Muhammad (a.s.), who says he heard from his father, Muhammad Ibne Ali (a.s.), who says he heard from his father, Ali Ibne Husain (a.s.), who says he heard from his father, Husain Ibne Ali (a.s.), who says he heard from his father, Amirul Momineen Ali Ibne Abi Talib (a.s.), who says he heard from the Messenger of Allah (s.a.w.s.), who says he heard from Jibraeel, who says he heard from Almighty Allah that, ‘The statement Laa ilaaha illallaah is My fort. One who enters My fort will remain safe from My punishment’.” When they moved on, he loudly said: “There are certain conditions for this. And I am one of these conditions.”
