1-Yahya Ibne Zakariya wrote that his wife was also expecting and that the Imam should pray similarly for him. Imam (a.s.) said: Many girls are better than boys. Thus Imam (a.s.) revealed the sex of the unborn child and rejected the un-Islamic belief that boys are superior. If it had been so, Almighty Allah would have given only sons to Holy Prophet (s.a.w.s.) and would have multiplied his generations through males. It was the same reply that Almighty Allah had given to the mother of Lady Maryam.

2- Abu Hashim said: I mentioned my precarious economical condition and requested him for monetary assistance. Imam (a.s.) gave me a handful of sand and said: Sell it and use the money. When he looked at the sand it had turned to gold and a miracle like that of Imam Ali (a.s.) was again displayed.

3-Abu Hashim says: When Imam (a.s.) came to Samarrah I said to him with utmost respect: I live in Baghdad, I cannot visit you everyday. My beast of burden is also weak. Imam (a.s.) said: Almighty Allah would make your beast strong. As a result of this I used to pray the Morning Prayer in Baghdad, Noon Prayer in Samarrah and Maghrib and Isha Prayer in Baghdad, whereas there is a distance of more than a hundred miles between these two places.

4- Abdur Rahman Misri was not among the followers of Ahle Bayt (a.s.), but one day he declared his devotion to Ahle Bayt (a.s.) in public. People were amazed and they asked him to explain. He said: I had gone to Samarrah. I heard that Mutawakkil had issued a verdict of execution of a Sayyid Alawite and that he was supposed to arrive after sometime. I waited to see who that person was. I saw a man being escorted there. I was much aggrieved at his nobility that he was being executed when he was innocent. He came near and said: O Abdur Rahman, don’t worry I cannot be killed. I was amazed how he came to know my name and I became a believer in his Imamate. He prayed for me about wealth and children and today I have both.
