[1/279] رجال الكشي: محمد بن الحسن البراني و عثمان بن حامد، عن محمد بن يزداد، عن محمد بن الحسين، عن الحجال، عن هشام بن سالم قال: كلمت رجلا بالمدينة من بني مخزوم في الإمامة، قال: فقال: فمن الإمام اليوم؟ قال: قلت: جعفر بن محمد قال: فقال: و الله لأقولنها له قال: فغمني بذلك غما شديدا خوفا أن يلعني أبو عبد الله أو يتبرأ مني، قال: فأتاه المخزومي فدخل عليه، فجرى الحديث، قال: فقال له مقالة هشام، قال: فقال أبو عبد الله عليه السلام: أفلا نظرت في قوله فنحن لذلك أهل، قال: فبقي الرجل لا يدري أيش يقول و قطع به، قال: فبلغ هشاما قول أبي عبد الله عليه السلام ففرح بذلك و انجلت غمته

1. [1/279] Rijal al-Kashshi: Muhammad b. al-Hasan al-Barani and Uthman b. Hamid from Muhammad b. Yazdad from Muhammad b. al-Husayn from al-Hajjal from Hisham b. Salim who said: I debated a man in Madina from the tribe of Makhzum about the Imama. He [the man] said to me: so who is the Imam today then? I [Hisham] said: Ja’far b. Muhammad. He [the man] said to me: by Allah - I am going to tell him this! He [Hisham] said: this threat of his grieved me greatly for I was afraid that Abu Abdillah would curse me and disassociate from me [for divulging the secret of the Imama in the heat of the debate]. The Makhzumi went to him, entered in to see him and they began conversing. He [al-Hajjal] says: He [the Makhzumi] relayed to him the words of Hisham. Abu Abdillah عليه السلام said: Have you not considered his words - for we are worthy of that [Imama]. The man began crying and did not know what to say and had no words [remained silent]. He [al-Hajjal] said: When the words of Abu Abdillah عليه السلام to that man were reported to Hisham he became happy and his grief abated.
