Hadith #1

1 حَدَّثَنِي أَبِي وَ أَخِي وَ عَلِيُّ بْنُ الْحُسَيْنِ وَ مُحَمَّدُ بْنُ الْحَسَنِ رَحِمَهُمُ اللَّهُ جَمِيعاً عَنْ سَعْدِ بْنِ عَبْدِ اللَّهِ بْنِ أَبِي خَلَفٍ عَنْ أَحْمَدَ بْنِ مُحَمَّدِ بْنِ عِيسَى عَنْ عَلِيِّ بْنِ الْحَكَمِ عَنْ صَفْوَانَ الْجَمَّالِ قَالَ كُنْتُ وَ عَامِرُ بْنُ عَبْدِ اللَّهِ بْنِ جُذَاعَةَ الْأَزْدِيُّ عِنْدَ أَبِي عَبْدِ اللَّهِ (ع) فَقَالَ لَهُ عَامِرٌ إِنَّ النَّاسَ يَزْعُمُونَ أَنَّ أَمِيرَ الْمُؤْمِنِينَ (ع) دُفِنَ بِالرَّحْبَةِ فَقَالَ لَا قَالَ فَأَيْنَ دُفِنَ قَالَ إِنَّهُ لَمَّا مَاتَ حَمَلَهُ الْحَسَنُ (ع) فَأَتَى بِهِ ظَهْرَ الْكُوفَةِ قَرِيباً مِنَ النَّجَفِ يَسْرَةً عَنِ الْغَرِيِّ يَمْنَةً عَنِ الْحِيرَةِ فَدُفِنَ بَيْنَ ذَكَوَاتٍ بِيضٍ قَالَ فَلَمَّا كَانَ بَعْدُ ذَهَبْتُ إِلَى الْمَوْضِعِ فَتَوَهَّمْتُ مَوْضِعاً مِنْهُ ثُمَّ أَتَيْتُهُ فَأَخْبَرْتُهُ فَقَالَ أَصَبْتَ أَصَبْتَ ثَلَاثَ مَرَّاتٍ رَحِمَكَ اللَّهُ [أَصَبْتَ رَحِمَكَ اللَّهُ ثَلَاثَ مَرَّاتٍ]

1. My father, my brother, ‘Ali ibn Ĥusain, and Muĥammad ibn Ĥasan all narrated to me from Sa’d ibn ‘Abdillāh ibn Abǐ Khalaf, from Aĥmad ibn Muĥammad ibn ‘Isā, from ‘Ali ibn Ĥakam, from Šafwān Al-Jammāl, who said: ‘Āmir ibn ‘Abdillāh ibn Judhā’ah Al-Azdi and I were with Abǐ ‘Abdillāh (Imam Šādiq (a.s.)) when ‘Āmir said to the Imam (a.s.), “People believe that the Commander of the Believers (a.s.) was buried in Ruĥbah.” “No,” Imam (a.s.) replied. “So where was he buried?” ‘Āmir asked. Imam (a.s.) replied: After the death of the Commander of the Believers (a.s.), Ĥasan (a.s.) carried him (to an area which is located) behind Kūfah, close to (the sea of) Najaf, to the left side of Gharǐ, and on the right side of Ĥǐrah. He buried (the Commander of the Believers (a.s.)) in some white-coloured gravel. After some time, I (Šafwān Al-Jammāl) went to the location (which the Imam (a.s.) had described), and I thought I had found the grave. When I returned, I told the Imam (a.s.) about the location (that I had thought to be the grave of the Commander of the Believers (a.s.)). Imam (a.s.) responded, “You were right! You were right! You were right! May Allāh have mercy on you.”
