[1/-] al-Kafi: Muhammad b. Yahya from Ahmad b. Muhammad b. Isa from Ibn Fadhal from Yunus b. Ya`qub from Sa`id b. Yasar who said: I visited one of the sons of Sabur, and they [the brothers] were all possessors of merit, self-restraint [from sins] and humility, in any case one of them fell sick – I do not think it was anyone other than Zakariyya b. Sabur – I attended to him when he was about to die so he stretched out his hand and said: my hand has brightened O Ali! following this I entered upon Abi Abdillah عليه السلام while Muhammad b. Muslim was with him, when I got up to leave I felt that Muhammad will inform him of the incident that happened with the man [Zakariyya], sure enough he [the Imam] sent a messenger after me [to call me] and I returned to him whereupon he said: inform me about this man whom you visited before his death – what did you hear him say? I said: he stretched out his hand and said ‘my hand has brightened O Ali!’ so Abu Abdillah عليه السلام said: by Allah he saw him! by Allah he saw him! by Allah he saw him!
