Hadith #12

12 وَ عَنْهُ عَنْ مُحَمَّدِ بْنِ الْحُسَيْنِ عَنِ الْحَجَّالِ عَنْ صَفْوَانَ بْنِ مِهْرَانَ عَنْ أَبِي عَبْدِ اللَّهِ (ع) قَالَ سَأَلْتُهُ عَنْ مَوْضِعِ قَبْرِ أَمِيرِ الْمُؤْمِنِينَ (ع) قَالَ فَوَصَفَ لِي مَوْضِعَهُ حَيْثُ دَكَادِكِ الْمِيلِ- قَالَ فَأَتَيْتُهُ فَصَلَّيْتُ عِنْدَهُ ثُمَّ عُدْتُ إِلَى أَبِي عَبْدِ اللَّهِ (ع) مِنْ قَابِلٍ فَأَخْبَرْتُهُ بِذَهَابِي وَ صَلَاتِي عِنْدَهُ فَقَالَ أَصَبْتَ فَمَكَثْتُ عِشْرِينَ سَنَةً أُصَلِّي عِنْدَهُ

12. My father narrated to me from Sa’d ibn ‘Abdillāh, from Aĥmad ibn Muĥammad ibn ‘Isā, from Aĥmad ibn Muĥammad ibn Abǐ Našr, who said: I asked Imam Riďā (a.s.) about the location of the grave of the Commander of the Believers (a.s.). He told me that it was in Gharǐ. I asked, “May I sacrifice myself for you! Some people say that he is buried in Ruĥbah.” Imam (a.s.) replied, “No. Some people (even) believe that he is buried in the Mosque (of Kūfah).”
