[2/247] Ghayba of al-Tusi: Via his chain to Abdallah b. Ja’far who said: A Tawqi [signed rescript] came out to the Shaykh Abi Ja’far Muhammad b. Uthman b. Sai’d al-Amri قدس الله روحه condoling him for the death of his father رضي الله تعالى عنه. In it was written: … May Allah amplify your reward and beautify your mourning. We grieve just as you grieve. It [his death] has left you bereft just as it has left us bereft. May Allah delight him after his return [to Him]. One aspect of the perfect felicity [he attained] is that Allah the Exalted granted him a son like you, who succeeds him after his departure, stands in his place as per his command, and supplicates for mercy for him. I say ‘All praise belongs to Allah’ for the souls are comforted due to the position you have assumed [after him] and because of what Allah Mighty and Majestic has bestowed in you and with you. May Allah support and strengthen you. May He aid you and facilitate you. May He be a Guardian over you, a Protector, a Guide and Sufficient [for you].

[2/247] غيبة الطوسي: باسناده عن عبد الله بن جعفر قال: خرج التوقيع إلى الشيخ أبي جعفر محمد بن عثمان بن سعيد العمري قدس الله روحه في التعزية بأبيه رضي الله تعالى عنه وفيه: … أجزل الله لك الثواب وأحسن لك العزاء، رزيت ورزينا، وأوحشك فراقه وأوحشنا، فسره الله في منقلبه، كان من كمال سعادته أن رزقه الله تعالى ولدا مثلك، يخلفه من بعده، ويقوم مقامه بأمره، ويترحم عليه، وأقول الحمد الله فإن الأنفس طيبة بمكانك، وما جعله الله عز وجل فيك وعندك، وأعانك الله وقواك، وعضدك ووفقك، وكان لك وليا وحافظا، وراعيا، وكافيا
