Hadith #11

11 حَدَّثَنِي مُحَمَّدُ بْنُ جَعْفَرٍ الرَّزَّازُ عَنْ مُحَمَّدِ بْنِ الْحُسَيْنِ بْنِ أَبِي الْخَطَّابِ الزَّيَّاتِ عَنِ الْحَسَنِ بْنِ مَحْبُوبٍ عَنْ إِسْحَاقَ بْنِ جَرِيرٍ عَنْ أَبِي عَبْدِ اللَّهِ (ع) قَالَ إِنِّي لَمَّا كُنْتُ بِالْحِيرَةِ عِنْدَ أَبِي الْعَبَّاسِ كُنْتُ آتِي قَبْرَ أَمِيرِ الْمُؤْمِنِينَ (ع) لَيْلًا وَ هُوَ بِنَاحِيَةِ النَّجَفِ إِلَى جَانِبِ الْغَرِيِّ النُّعْمَانِ فَأُصَلِّي عِنْدَهُ صَلَاةَ اللَّيْلِ وَ أنْصَرِفُ قَبْلَ الْفَجْرِ

11. Muĥammad ibn Ja’far Al-Razzāz narrated to me from Muĥammad ibn Ĥusain, from Hajjāl, from Šafwān ibn Mihrān, who said: I asked Abā ‘Abdillāh (Imam Šādiq (a.s.)) about the location of the grave of the Commander of the Believers (a.s.). He described that it was located in the land of the hardened sands. I went to the described location and established prayers there. The following year, I went back to the Imam (a.s.) and informed him that I had gone to the described location and had prayed there. He told me that I had found the correct location. For twenty years thereafter, I used to go to that described location every year and establish prayers next to it.
