2 حَدَّثَنِي مُحَمَّدُ بْنُ الْحَسَنِ عَنْ مُحَمَّدِ بْنِ الْحَسَنِ الصَّفَّارِ عَنْ أَحْمَدَ بْنِ مُحَمَّدِ بْنِ عِيسَى عَنْ مُحَمَّدِ بْنِ إِسْمَاعِيلَ بْنِ بَزِيعٍ عَنْ صَالِحِ بْنِ عُقْبَةَ عَنْ أَبِي سَعِيدٍ الْمَدَائِنِيِّ قَالَ دَخَلْتُ عَلَى أَبِي عَبْدِ اللَّهِ (ع) فَقُلْتُ جُعِلْتُ فِدَاكَ آتِي قَبْرَ الْحُسَيْنِ (ع) قَالَ نَعَمْ يَا أَبَا سَعِيدٍ ائْتِ قَبْرَ الْحُسَيْنِ بْنِ رَسُولِ اللَّهِ (ص) أَطْيَبِ الْأَطْيَبِينَ وَ أَطْهَرِ الطَّاهِرِينَ وَ أَبَرِّ الْأَبْرَارِ فَإِنَّكَ إِذَا زُرْتَهُ كَتَبَ اللَّهُ لَكَ بِهِ خَمْساً وَ عِشْرِينَ حِجَّةً حَدَّثَنِي مُحَمَّدُ بْنُ يَعْقُوبَ عَنْ مُحَمَّدِ بْنِ يَحْيَى عَنْ مُحَمَّدِ بْنِ الْحُسَيْنِ بْنِ أَبِي الْخَطَّابِ عَنْ مُحَمَّدِ بْنِ إِسْمَاعِيلَ بِإِسْنَادِهِ مِثْلَهُ

2. Muĥammad ibn Ĥasan narrated to me from Muĥammad ibn Ĥasan Al-Šaffār, from Aĥmad ibn Muĥammad ibn ‘Isā, from Muĥammad ibn Ismā’ǐl ibn Bazǐ’, from Šāliĥ ibn ‘Uqbah, from Abǐ Sa’ǐd Al-Madā`ini, who said: I went to Abǐ ‘Abdillāh (Imam Šādiq (a.s.)) and asked, “May I sacrifice myself for you! Should I go to (the Ziyārah of) the grave of Ĥusain (a.s.)?” Imam (a.s.) replied: O Abā Sa’ǐd! Yes! Go to (the Ziyārah of) the grave of Ĥusain (a.s.), son of the Messenger of Allāh (s.a.a.w.), the most blessed of the blessed ones, the most purified of the purified ones, and the most pious of the pious ones; for if you go to his Ziyārah, Allāh will register twenty-five Hajj for you. The above Ĥadǐth has also been narrated to me through the following chain: Muĥammad ibn Ya’qūb (Al-Kulayni), from Muĥammad ibn Yaĥyā, from Muĥammad ibn Ĥusain ibn Abil Khaťťāb, from Muĥammad ibn Ismā’ǐl, from Šāliĥ ibn ‘Uqbah, from Abǐ Sa’ǐd Al-Madā`ini, from Abǐ ‘Abdillāh (a.s.).
