Imam Reza's(A.S.) Companions and Narrators of His Traditions

Imam al-Rida, peace be on him, was, in his time, the giant of Islamic thought and the most learned person on the face of the earth, as al-M'mu`n said. He supplied Islamic world with all elements of progress and renaissance. He employed the Prophetic Mosque, may Allah increase it in honor, as an institute for his lessons and lectures. The religious scholars, the narrators, and the students of jurisprudence surrounded him, while he was twenty and some years old. They recorded his verdicts, his marvelous wise sayings, and arts.
The religious scholars found in his traditions knowledge similar to that of his grandfather, the Messenger, may Allah bless him and his family, the first Inspirer of the ideological and scientific matters on earth; they came to know that he was as brilliant as his forefathers, the pure Imam, the pioneers of the cultural and scientific renaissance in the world of Islam. The narrators said: "There are no seven noble persons on earth from whom the Sh´'a (khas) and non-Sh´'a ('am) wrote traditions except 'Ali b. Musa (al-Rida`), peace be on him."
The religious scholars took great care of his traditions to the extent that when he passed through Nisa`bu`r (Iran), they gathered around him. Their number was more than twenty thousand persons. They held ink pots and asked him to relate to them the traditions of his
randfather, Allah's Messenger, may Allah bless him and his family. He narrated to them the tradition called al-hadith al-dhahabi (the Golden Tradition), as we will mention it. As the tradition was of great importance, one of the Samni Emirs ordered it to be written in gold and to be buried with him.1 Some students of his grandfather, Imam al-Sadiq, peace be on him, and of his father Imam Musa, peace be on him, narrated (traditions) on his authority. A group of the religious scholars who were coincided with him also narrated from him. We will present the biographies of his companions and the narrators of his traditions. That is because, as we think, they will complete the research on the personality of the Imam and shows a side of his scientific life. (They are as follows:)

1. Ibrah´m Bin al-'Abbas
b. Mohammed al-Sawli, the great, inspired poet. He was given the kunya of Abu Ishaq. He was the most brilliant poet of his time and best of all the poets in showing friendship and love toward the Imams of the members of the House (ahl al-Bayt), peace be on them. There were close ties between him and Imam al-Rida, peace be on him. He showed deep, sincere love toward Imam al-Rida, peace be on him. We will present some sides of his life.
His Paying a Visit to the Imam
Ibrah´m along with Di'bil al-Khaza'i, the poet of the members of the House (ahl al-Bayt), peace be on them, visited Imam al-Rida, peace be on him. That was when al-Ma'mun pledged allegiance to him and appointed him as his successor. Di'bil recited to him his everlasting poem, which is regarded as one of the Arab excellent poems. We will mention it in his biography. Then Ibrah´m recited to him his poem of which nothing is known except this line:
The murders of the children of the Prophet, Mohammed,
have removed the comfort of the heart after endurance.
This poetry line shows the sufferings and sorrow of al-Sawli toward the trials and tribulations which the enemy of Islam wreaked upon the Household of the Prophet. I (i.e. the author) think that the whole poem is good and firm and is regarding the lamentation for the members of the House (ahl al-Bayt), peace be on them. When he had finished reciting it, the Imam gave them twenty thousand of the dirhams which held his holy name. As for Di'bil, he took his prize and went to (the holy city) of Qum. There the people bought each dirham for ten dirhams, hence he bought his portion for one hundred thousand dirhams. As for Ibrah´m b. al-'Abbas, he kept some of the dirhams until he died. The following lines are some of his poetry on praising Imam al-Rida, peace be on him:
One's actions are a sufficient, just witness for his being the most knowledgeable of his people.
I can see that they have a modern one, but the modern is not similar to the old (in their good deeds).
He (al-Ma'mun) bestows upon you through your own properties, and you are given one percent.
May Allah not praise him who seeks the help of your enemies and praises them.
You have preferred your partner, who is a close relative, just as the parent prefers his own son.
These lines show his deep faith in the members of the House (ahl al-Bayt), peace be on them, and his friendship toward them. He metaphorically used these lines for them, for he was afraid of the tyrannical authority which punished due to doubt and accusation all those who showed friendship toward the Family of the Prophet, may Allah bless him and his family.
Examples of his Poetry
Al-Sawli's poems are regarded as part of wonderful Arab poetry. The following lines are some of his chosen poems:
A visit has brought near men to each other in spite of their being far, and the shrine of Layla` has become distant in spite of its being near.
And (the houses) standing at Mun'rajj al-Liwa` are nearer (to me) than (the shrine of) Layla`; and that is her house.
The following lines belong to him:
One maybe tired of a misfortune and the escape from it is with Allah.
It (the misfortune) became more intense. When its episodes intensified, it was driven away, while I thought that it would not be driven away.
The following lines belong to him too:
You were the iris of my eyeball, so the eye wept for you.
Whoever desires to die after you, then let him die. For I took care of you.
His Burning the Divan of his Poetry
Ibrah´m was the friend of Isha`q b. Ibrah´m, so he wrote a copy of his poetry concerning Imam 'Ali b.Musa al-Rida`, peace be on him, and gave it to him. The copy remained with him until al-Mutawakkil, the tyrannical, became a caliph. Ibrah´m was in charge of expenditure for al-Mutawakkil. Separation and hate took place between Ibrah´m and Ishaq, hence Ibrah´m removed him from some expenditures which were at his hand, asked him for some money, insisted on it, and demanded him in a bad manner. Hence Ishaq summoned one of his trustworthy brothers and said to him: "Go to Ibrah´m b. al-'Abba`s and say to him: 'Your poetry concerning 'Ali b. Musa in your own handwriting and other than your handwriting is with Ishaq. By Allah, if you continue wronging him and do not refrain from asking him (for money), he will hand over (your) poetry to al-Mutawakkil.'" As a result the man went to Ibrah´m b. al-'Abba`s and told him about that. Ibrah´m was so worried that he entrusted the affair to the man. He released him (Ishaq) from all that which he asked from him, took the poetry from him, and made him swear by Allah that he had no poetry with him. When he received the poetry, he burnt it in his presence.
Examples of his Writings
Ibrah´m was an eloquent writer. The following is a piece of his writing on behalf of an 'Abbasid king who threatened the rebels:
"Now, then, the Commander of the faithful has patience. If it is not sufficient, a threat will follow it. If it is not sufficient, his resolutions will be sufficient. Greetings."
Ibn Khullakan commented on this letter, saying: "This statement, though brief, is very marvelous. "

He began reading them and putting a big book on his eyes. He wept until his tears flowed down his cheeks, so l said to him: 'May I be your ransom, your father, perhaps, said to me in one session several times: 'May Allah make you dwell the Garden.' So he said: 'I also say to you: 'May Allah make you dwell the Garden!' Then I asked him: 'Do you guarantee that your Lord will make me enter the Garden?' 'Yes,' he replied. He (Ibrah´m b.

The first (premise) is that he was the agent of Imam al-Rida, peace be on him. The second (premise) is that they (the Imams) did not appoint the sinner as an agent."
The Sayyid discussed both premises.

8. Ibrah´m Bin Shu'ayb al-Waqifi
He (i.e. Ibrah´m Bin Shu'ayb) said: "I was sitting in the Mosque of Allah's Apostle, may Allah bless him and his family, and there was beside me a man from the people of Iraq. I asked him: 'Who are you?' 'The retainer of Abu al-Hasan al-Rida, peace be on him,' he replied. I said to him: 'I have a need of you.' 'What is it?' he asked. I want you to hand over a letter (ruq'a) to him. 'Yes,' he said, 'as you like.' So I went out, took a sheet of paper, and wrote in it: 'In the Name of Allah, the Compassionate, the Merciful. Your fathers, who were before you, would tell us of something therein were signs and proofs. I want you to tell me my name and my father's name."
He (i.e. Ibrah´m Bin Shu'ayb) said: "Then I stamped the letter and gave it to him. On the following morning, he (the retainer) brought me a sealed letter. I opened the letter and read it. At the bottom of the letter (it was written): 'In the Name of Allah, the Compassionate, the Merciful.

Mohammed b. al-Nu'man al-Muf´d told us about the book.
