Al- Fadil Bin Yasar
Al- Fadil b. Yasar al- Hindy, an Arab from Basrah, reported traditions on the authority of al- Baqir and al- Sadiq, peace be on them. He died during the days of al- Sadiq, peace be on him. He was among the six companions of Abu Ja'far, peace be on him. The sect (the Shi'a) has a greed on the correctness of the reports the narrators mention on his authority and acknowledged that he was a jurisprudent. When Abu Abd Allah looked at him, he said: "And give good news to the humble."(581) Also he said: "Fadil was among the companions of my father. I love the man who loves the companions of my father." There are many traditions about his outstanding merit and righteousness.
For example, al- Sadiq, peace be on him, said: "May Allah have mercy upon al- Fadil b. Yasar, he was among us, we the members of the House (ahl al Bayt ).
