'Amr Bin Hanzalah
Abu Sakhr 'Amr b. Hanzalah al- 'Ajali al- Bakri al- Kufi reported traditions on the authority of al- Baqir and al- Sadiq, peace be on them. He had a high position with ahl al Bayt. This position denotes his firm belief and reliance. In al- Kafi, Chapter on Time of prayer: "Yazid b. Khalifa(579) said to al- Sadiq, peace be on him, 'Amr b. Hanzalah told us something about you at a time.' Al- Sadiq said: 'Therefore, this ('Amr) does not tell lies about us.'" Al- Sadiq said to 'Amr: "Abu Sakhr, by Allah, you follow my religion and the religion of my grandfathers. By Allah, we will intercede for (you) when our enemy says: 'So, we have no intercessors nor a true friend."(580)
This tradition indicates that 'Amr had a high position with al- Baqir and al- Sadiq, peace be on them. He reported many traditions on the authority of al- Sadiq. The great reliable narrators and some people of the consensus reported the traditions from him.
