[1/202] Rijal al-Kashshi: Muhammad b. Masud from Ibrahim b. Muhammad b. Faris from Ya`qub b. Yazid from Ibn Abi Umayr from Shihab b. Abd Rabbi from Abi Basir who said: `Ilba al-Asadi assumed the governorship of Bahrayn and gained seventy thousand gold coins, livestock and slaves. He carried all that with him until he had placed it in front of Abi Abdillah عليه السلام and said: I was appointed the governor of Bahrayn by Bani Umayya and have gained such and such, I have brought it all to you because I know that Allah Mighty and Majestic did not give anything of it to them rather it all belongs to you. Abu Abdillah عليه السلام said to him: hand it over [the gold coins], so he [`Ilba] placed it in front of him, he [the Imam] said to him: we have accepted from you, and we have gifted it back to you, and we have permitted you to make use of it, and we have guaranteed paradise on behalf of Allah for you. Abu Basir said: so I said: what is wrong with me! and I began crying and continued: may I be made your ransom, am I not the old in age? weak in sight [he was blind]? so guarantee it for me as well, he [the Imam] said: I have done so, I said: guarantee it to me on behalf of your forefathers – and I named them one after the other, he said: I have done so, I said: guarantee it for me on behalf of the messenger of Allah صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم, he said: I have done so, I said: guarantee it for me on behalf of Allah, he said: I have done so.
