[2/-] Mahasin of al-Barqi: And from him (Muhammad b. Khalid al-Barqi) from Ali b. al-Hakam from Hisham b. Salim from Abi Abdillah عليه السلام who said: whomsoever it reaches something about the Thawab – attributed to the prophet صلى الله عليه وآله – and he acts upon it, he will have the rewards of that, even if the messenger of Allah صلى الله عليه وآله had not said it. Comments
al-Moḥsini says: We have included this second narration in-spite of the weakness of its source [i.e. he does not accept al-Mahasin] – because – the first narration corroborates it which indicates that this is not a spurious interpolation added into the particular manuscript of al-Mahasin that reached al-Majlisi.
This narration is from among the famous narrations which has been narrated by both the Khassa and the Amma via a multitude of chains.
