Maysar Bin Abd al- 'Aziz
Maysar b. Abd al- 'Aziz al- Nakha'i al- Kufi al- Mada'ini, reported traditions on the authority of the two truthful Imams. Many reliable narrators reported these traditions on his authority. Many of them were among the people of consensus. In al- Manaqib, b. Shahrashub has regarded him as one of the reliable companions of al- Sadiq, peace be on him. It was said that he died in the days of al- Sadiq, in the year 136 (A.H.). He has been praised in many traditions. For example, Abu Ja'far, peace be on him, said concerning hi'm: "Maysar, indeed, your death came more than times. However, Allah has postponed it because you observed and strengthened the ties of kinship." This tradition with the same meaning has been mentioned many times. Also he said to him: "Verily, I love your perfume and your souls; you have adopted the religion of Allah and the religion of His angels." And there are similar traditions which show his dignity and greatness.
