Ishaq al- Sayrafy
His real name was Ishaq b. Ammar b. Hayyan al- Sayrafy al- Kufi. He was among the reliable narrators who reported traditions on the authority of al- Sadiq his son al- Kazim, peace be on them, his brothers Yunus, Yousif, and Isma'il, and his nephews 'Ali and Bashir (the two sons of Isma'il), who were among the great figures who reported traditions.
When al- Sadiq saw him and his brother Isma'il, he said: "He (Allah) may gather them for peoples." He meant this world and the next one. That is because they were rich enough to help their companions.
Adapted from: "Imam al-Sadiq (a.s.)"
