قَالَ أَخْبَرَنِي أَبِي عَنْ جَدِّي أَنَّهُ كَانَ مَعَ أَبِي جَعْفَرٍ مُحَمَّدِ بْنِ عَلِيِّ بِمِنًى وَ هُوَ يَرْمِي الْجَمَرَاتِ وَ أَنَّ أَبَا جَعْفَرٍ رَمَى الْجَمَرَاتِ قَالَ فَاسْتَتَمَّهَا ثُمَّ بَقِيَ فِي يَدِهِ بَعْدُ خَمْسُ حَصَيَاتٍ فَرَمَى اثْنَتَيْنِ فِي نَاحِيَةٍ وَ ثَلَاثَةً فِي نَاحِيَةٍ فَقَالَ لَهُ جَدِّي جُعِلْتُ فِدَاكَ لَقَدْ رَأَيْتُكَ صَنَعْتَ شَيْئاً مَا صَنَعَهُ أَحَدٌ قَطُّ رَأَيْتُكَ رَمَيْتَ الْجَمَرَاتِ ثُمَّ رَمَيْتَ بِخَمْسَةٍ بَعْدَ ذَلِكَ ثَلَاثَةً فِي نَاحِيَةٍ وَ اثْنَتَيْنِ فِي نَاحِيَةٍ قَالَ نَعَمْ إِنَّهُ إِذَا كَانَ كُلُّ مَوْسِمٍ أُخْرِجَا الْفَاسِقَيْنِ الْغَاصِبَيْنِ ثُمَّ يُفَرَّقُ بَيْنَهُمَا هَاهُنَا لَا يَرَاهُمَا إِلَّا إِمَامُ عَدْلٍ فَرَمَيْتُ الْأَوَّلَ اثْنَتَيْنِ وَ الْآخَرَ ثَلَاثَةً لِأَنَّ الْآخَرَ أَخْبَثُ مِنَ الْأَوَّلِ

Abu Taher al-Alawi reports, “My father informed me vide his father that the latter was with Imam Abu Jafar Muhammad Ibn Ali (peace be on them both) at Mena (in Makkah) while he (my grandfather) was throwing pebbles (at the devils) and Imam Abu Jafar (peace be on him) too was throwing pebbles (ramy al-jamaaraat – stoning the devils, a ritual of Hajj). He (peace be on him) completed the ritual while still five pebbles remained in his hand. He (peace be on him) through two pebbles in one direction and the other three in another direction. My grandfather asked him, ‘May I be held your ransom! I saw doing something which I have never ever seen anybody else do before! First, you did the ritual of stoning the devils. Thereafter, you threw the remaining pebbles, two in one direction and the other three in another direction’. He (peace be on him) replied, ‘Yes. Every year in the season (of Hajj), the TWO transgressors and usurpers are taken out from their graves and both are separated here. None can see them except a just Imam (i.e. appointed by Allah). So I threw the two stones at the first one and the remaining three at the second one because the latter is more wretched than the former’.
