5 حَدَّثَنِي أَبِي وَ مُحَمَّدُ بْنُ الْحَسَنِ جَمِيعاً عَنِ الْحَسَنِ بْنِ مَتِّيلٍ عَنْ سَهْلِ بْنِ زِيَادٍ عَنْ إِبْرَاهِيمَ بْنِ عُقْبَةَ عَنِ الْحَسَنِ الْخَزَّازِ الْوَشَّاءِ عَنْ أَبِي الْفَرَجِ عَنْ أَبَانِ بْنِ تَغْلِبَ قَالَ كُنْتُ مَعَ أَبِي عَبْدِ اللَّهِ (ع) فَمَرَّ بِظَهْرِ الْكُوفَةِ فَنَزَلَ وَ صَلَّى رَكْعَتَيْنِ- ثُمَّ تَقَدَّمَ قَلِيلًا فَصَلَّى رَكْعَتَيْنِ ثُمَّ سَارَ قَلِيلًا فَنَزَلَ فَصَلَّى رَكْعَتَيْنِ ثُمَّ قَالَ هَذَا مَوْضِعُ قَبْرِ أَمِيرِ الْمُؤْمِنِينَ قُلْتُ جُعِلْتُ فِدَاكَ فَمَا الْمَوْضِعَيْنِ اللَّذَيْنِ صَلَّيْتَ فِيهِمَا قَالَ مَوْضِعُ رَأْسِ الْحُسَيْنِ (ع) وَ مَوْضِعُ مِنْبَرِ الْقَائِمِ ع

5. My father and Muĥammad ibn Ĥasan both narrated to me from Ĥasan ibn Mattǐl, from Sahl ibn Ziyād, from Ibrāhǐm ibn ‘Uqbah, from Ĥasan Al-Khazzāz Al-Washā, from Abil Faraj, from Abān ibn Taghlib, who said: I was with Abǐ ‘Abdillāh (Imam Šādiq (a.s.)) when he passed through (the area) behind Kūfah. He stopped there and prayed two Rak’ah. Then he moved forward a little and prayed another two Rak’ah. Then he moved forward a little further and prayed another two Rak’ah. Then he said, “This is the location of the grave of the Commander of the Believers (a.s.).” “May I sacrifice myself for you! What were the other two locations on which you prayed?” I asked. “The location of the head of Ĥusain (a.s.) and the location of the pulpit of the Qā`im (a.s.),” Imam (a.s.) replied.
