in continuation with our series on this topic, this is our 5th post,

in this short post of ours, we just take into accounted, a narration which we have already discussed here

and in this, we have already seen that imam said

Al-Reza (s) said, “The immaculate progeny are those whom the Honorable the Exalted God describes in His Book by saying,

…And Allah only wishes to remove all abomination from you, ye members of the Family, and to make you pure and spotless.’

[ahzab 33]

They are those about whom the Prophet (s) said the following,

“I am leaving among you two weighty things – the Book of God and my progeny; my family. They will not separate from each other until they join me at the Divine Pool (Kawthar). Consider how will you regard me in treating them. O people! Do not teach them, because they are more knowledgeable than you are.”

now, the chain for this narration was

1-   حدثنا علي بن الحسين بن شاذويه المؤدب و جعفر بنمحمد بن مسرور رضي الله عنهما قالا حدثنا محمد بن عبد الله بن جعفر الحميري عنأبيه عن الريان بن الصلت

this time, we add another chain for it

and it is from rijal-un-najashi

najashi writes

437- [ال] ريان بن الصلت الأشعري القمي : أبو علي روى عن الرضا عليه السلام، كان ثقة صدوقا . ذكر أن له كتابا جمع فيه كلام الرضا عليه السلام في الفرق بين الآل و الأمة . قال أبو عبد الله الحسين بن عبيد الله رحمه الله أخبرنا أحمد بن محمد بن يحيى قال حدثنا عبد الله بن جعفر عن الريان بن الصلت به، و قال رأيت في نسخة أخرى الريان بن شبيب .

[rijal un najashi, page 165, narrator 437]

this chain is different and it has

abu abdullah hussein bin ubaidullah; he is sheikh of najashi, and is more famous by the name of ghadairi,

ahmad bin mohammad bin yahya al attar is thiqa; as deduced by al khoi [maujam vol 2, page 347-348, narrator 929]

abdullah bin jafar bin hameeri is thiqa

and then is rayan bin salat ; and we have talked about him before
