Ammar al- Sabaty
Abu al- Yaqdan Ammar b. Musa al- Sabaty, a Kufi dwelled in Mada'in reported traditions on the authority of Abu Abd Allah and Abu al- Hasan. He was attributed to the Fatahiya. If this attribution is right, it does not affect his reliable report, especially al- Kazim, peace be on him said concerning him: "I asked my Lord to grant me Ammar, and He granted him to me." Al- Kashy has mentioned this tradition in three pages: 164, 256, and 313. The jurisprudents regarded him as one of the great figures from whom people learned the lawful and the unlawful. The companions acted according to the traditions he reported. He reported many traditions. Whoever reads carefully the books of tradition knows that he reported many traditions. In al- Fihrist, the Shaykh said: "He has a good, reliable book (i.e. a group of traditions)."
Ammar had two brothers. Their names were Qays and Sabah. They reported traditions on the authority of al- Sadiq and al- Kazim, peace be on them. Also they were among the reliable narrators of the Imams.
