28 - حَدَّثَنا مُحَمَّدِ بْنِ الحَسَن بْنِ أَحْمَدِ بْنِ الوَلِيد رَضِىَ اللهُ عَنْهُ قالَ: حَدَّثَنا مُحَمَّدِ بْنِ الحَسَن الصَفَّارِ، عَنْ مُحَمَّدِ بْنِ الحُسَيْنِ بْنِ أَبي الخَطَّاب وَأَحْمَدِ بْنِ مُحَمَّد، عَنْ أَبيهِ، عَنْ عَلِىِّ بْنِ أَسْباطٍ، وَالحَجَّالِ أَنَّهُما سَمِعا الرِّضا عَلَيْهِ السَّلامُ يَقُولُ: كَانَ الْعَابِدُ مِنْ بَنِي إِسْرَائِيلَ لا يَتَعَبَّدُ حَتَّى يَصْمُتَ عَشْرَ سِنِينَ.
