[1/176] Rijal al-Kashshi: Muhammad b. Masud said: I asked Aba al-Hasan Ali b. al-Hasan [b. Ali b. Fadhal] about the name of Abi Khadija what was it? he said: it was Salim b. Mukram. I said to him: was he Thiqa? He said: He was Salih. He was a resident of Kufa and was a Cameleer [in the business of renting out camels]. It is said that he was the one who transported [carried on his camels] Aba Abdillah عليه السلام from Makka to Madina. He [Ali b. al-Hasan] said: Abd al-Rahman b. Abi Hashim reported to us from Abi Khadija that Abu Abdillah عليه السلام said to him: do not use Abi Khadija as an agnomen [Kuniyya], he said: what should I use? he said: Abi Salama.

Salim was among the companions of Abu al-Khattab and was inside the Masjid the day that Isa b. Musa b. Ali b. Abdallah b. Abbas – who was the governor of al-Mansur [the Abbasid Caliph] over Kufa – sent forces against Abi al-Khattab, having heard that they had become licentious [permitted the forbidden acts], called the people to accept the prophethood of Abu al-Khattab, and gathered in the Masjid [to plan a revolt] ensconcing themselves in its pillars while making it seem to the people as if they were doing so for purposes of worship. So he [Isa] sent men to them who killed them all, no one from among them escaped except for one man who was injured, fell amidst the dead and was thought to be dead, when night came he stood and disappeared. That man was Abu Salama Salim b. Mukram the Cameleer who also had the Kuniyya of Abu Khadija [before the Imam changed it]. It is said that he repented after this incident [for following Abi al-Khattab] and became among those who narrate the Hadith [from al-Sadiq].

[1/176] رجال الكشي: محمد بن مسعود قال: سألت أبا الحسن علي بن الحسن عن اسم أبي خديجة قال: سالم بن مكرم فقلت له: ثقة؟ فقال: صالح و كان من أهل الكوفة و كان جمالا، و ذكر أنه حمل أبا عبد الله عليه السلام من مكة إلى المدينة قال: أخبرنا عبد الرحمن بن أبي هاشم عن أبي خديجة قال أبو عبد الله عليه السلام: لا تكتن بأبي خديجة قلت: فبم أكتني فقال: بأبي سلمه

 

و كان سالم من أصحاب أبي الخطاب، و كان في المسجد يوم بعث عيسى بن موسى بن علي بن عبد الله بن العباس، و كان عامل المنصور على الكوفة إلى أبي الخطاب، لما بلغه أنهم قد أظهروا الإباحات و دعوا الناس إلى نبوة أبي الخطاب، و إنهم يجتمعون في المسجد و لزموا الأساطين يورون الناس أنهم قد لزموها للعبادة، و بعث إليهم رجلا فقتلهم جميعا، لم يفلت منهم إلا رجل واحد أصابته جراحات فسقط بين القتلى يعد فيهم، فلما جنه الليل خرج من بينهم فتخلص، و هو أبو سلمة سالم بن مكرم الجمال الملقب بأبي خديجة، فذكر بعد ذلك أنه تاب و كان ممن يروي الحديث
