2 وَ عَنْهُ عَنْ أَبِيهِ عَنِ الْحَسَنِ بْنِ مَحْبُوبٍ عَنْ دَاوُدَ الرَّقِّيِّ قَالَ سَمِعْتُ أَبَا عَبْدِ اللَّهِ (ع) يَقُولُ مَا خَلَقَ اللَّهُ خَلْقاً أَكْثَرَ مِنَ الْمَلَائِكَةِ وَ إِنَّهُ يَنْزِلُ مِنَ السَّمَاءِ كُلَّ مَسَاءٍ سَبْعُونَ أَلْفَ مَلَكٍ يَطُوفُونَ بِالْبَيْتِ الْحَرَامِ لَيْلَتَهُمْ حَتَّى إِذَا طَلَعَ الْفَجْرُ انْصَرَفُوا إِلَى قَبْرِ النَّبِيِّ (ص) فَيُسَلِّمُونَ عَلَيْهِ ثُمَّ يَأْتُونَ قَبْرَ أَمِيرِ الْمُؤْمِنِينَ (ع) فَيُسَلِّمُونَ عَلَيْهِ ثُمَّ يَأْتُونَ قَبْرَ الْحُسَيْنِ (ع) فَيُسَلِّمُونَ عَلَيْهِ ثُمَّ يَعْرُجُونَ إِلَى السَّمَاءِ قَبْلَ أَنْ تَطْلُعَ الشَّمْسُ ثُمَّ تَنْزِلُ مَلَائِكَةُ النَّهَارِ سَبْعُونَ أَلْفَ مَلَكٍ فَيَطُوفُونَ بِالْبَيْتِ الْحَرَامِ نَهَارَهُمْ حَتَّى إِذَا غَرَبَتِ الشَّمْسُ انْصَرَفُوا إِلَى قَبْرِ رَسُولِ اللَّهِ (ص) فَيُسَلِّمُونَ عَلَيْهِ ثُمَّ يَأْتُونَ قَبْرَ أَمِيرِ الْمُؤْمِنِينَ (ع) فَيُسَلِّمُونَ عَلَيْهِ ثُمَّ يَأْتُونَ قَبْرَ الْحُسَيْنِ (ع) فَيُسَلِّمُونَ عَلَيْهِ ثُمَّ يَعْرُجُونَ إِلَى السَّمَاءِ قَبْلَ أَنْ تَغِيبَ الشَّمْسُ

2. Ĥasan ibn ‘Abdillāh ibn Muĥammad ibn ‘Isā narrated to me from his father, from Ĥasan ibn Maĥbūb, from Dāwūd Al-Raqqi, who said: I heard Abā ‘Abdillāh (Imam Šādiq (a.s.)) say: Allāh has not created any creation greater in number than the angels. Every evening, seventy thousand angels descend from the heavens. They perform Ťawāf around Bayt Al-Ĥarām (Ka’bah) until dawn, after which they proceed to the grave of the Prophet (s.a.a.w.) and say Salām to him. Then they go to the grave of the Commander of the Believers (a.s.) to say Salām to him, after which they go to the grave of Ĥusain (a.s.) and say Salām to him; and then they ascend back to the heavens before sunrise. Then seventy thousand angels from among the angels of the day descend from the heavens. They (too) perform Ťawāf around Bayt Al-Ĥarām (Ka’bah) until sunset, after which they proceed to the grave of the Messenger of Allāh (s.a.a.w.) and say Salām to him. Then they go to the grave of the Commander of the Believers (a.s.) to say Salām to him, after which they go to the grave of Ĥusain (a.s.) and say Salām to him; and then they ascend back to the heavens before nightfall.
