5 حَدَّثَنِي أَبِي وَ عَلِيُّ بْنُ الْحُسَيْنِ وَ مُحَمَّدُ بْنُ الْحَسَنِ رَحِمَهُمُ اللَّهُ عَنْ سَعْدِ بْنِ عَبْدِ اللَّهِ عَنِ الْحَسَنِ بْنِ عَلِيِّ بْنِ عَبْدِ اللَّهِ بْنِ الْمُغِيرَةِ عَنِ الْعَبَّاسِ بْنِ عَامِرٍ عَنْ أَحْمَدَ بْنِ رِزْقٍ الْغُمْشَانِيِّ عَنْ أُمِّ سَعِيدٍ الْأَحْمَسِيَّةِ قَالَتْ دَخَلْتُ الْمَدِينَةَ فَاكْتَرَيْتُ حِمَاراً عَلَى أَنْ أَطُوفَ عَلَى قُبُورِ الشُّهَدَاءِ فَقُلْتُ لَا بُدَّ أَبْدَأُ بِابْنِ رَسُولِ اللَّهِ (ص) فَأَدْخُلُ عَلَيْهِ فَأَبْطَأْتُ عَلَى الْمُكَارِي قَلِيلًا فَهَتَفَ بِي- فَقَالَ لِي أَبُو عَبْدِ اللَّهِ (ع) مَا هَذَا يَا أُمَّ سَعِيدٍ قُلْتُ لَهُ جُعِلْتُ فِدَاكَ تَكَارَيْتُ حِمَاراً لِأَدُورَ عَلَى قُبُورِ الشُّهَدَاءِ قَالَ أَ فَلَا أُخْبِرُكَ بِسَيِّدِ الشُّهَدَاءِ قُلْتُ بَلَى قَالَ الْحُسَيْنُ بْنُ عَلِيٍّ (ع) قُلْتُ وَ إِنَّهُ لَسَيِّدُ الشُّهَدَاءِ قَالَ نَعَمْ قُلْتُ فَمَا لِمَنْ زَارَهُ قَالَ حِجَّةٌ وَ عُمْرَةٌ وَ مِنَ الْخَيْرِ هَكَذَا وَ هَكَذَا

5. My father, ‘Ali ibn Ĥusain, and Muĥammad ibn Ĥasan all narrated to me from Sa’d ibn ‘Abdillāh, from Ĥasan ibn ‘Ali ibn ‘Abdillāh ibn Mughǐrah, from ‘Abbās ibn ‘Āmir, from Aĥmad ibn Rizq Al-Ghamshāni (Al-Bajali), from Um Sa’ǐd Al-Aĥmasiyyah, who said: I entered Madǐnah and I rented a donkey (and a guide) to go to the Ziyārah of the graves of the martyrs (of Uĥud). However, I thought that I should start by visiting the son of the Messenger of Allāh (s.a.a.w.) (Imam Šādiq (a.s.)). So I went and saw the Imam (a.s.), and I delayed the guide a little. The guide raised his voice (to make me hurry). (When the Imam (a.s.) heard him) he asked me, “What is this about, O Um Sa’ǐd?” I replied, “May I sacrifice myself for you! I have rented a donkey to go to the Ziyārah of the graves of the martyrs (of Uĥud).” Imam (a.s.) asked, “Should I not tell you about the Master of the Martyrs?” I replied, “Yes.” Imam (a.s.) said, “(It is) Ĥusain ibn ‘Ali (a.s.).” I asked, “Is he truly the Master of the Martyrs?” Imam (a.s.) replied, “Yes.” I asked, “What is the reward for those who go to his Ziyārah?” Imam (a.s.) replied, “The reward of Hajj and ‘Umrah and this much reward.”
