عَنْ مُعَاذِ بْنِ كَثِيرٍ قَالَ نَظَرْتُ إِلَى الْمَوْقِفِ وَ النَّاسُ فِيهِ كَثِيرٌ فَدَنَوْتُ إِلَى أَبِي عَبْدِ اللهِ عَلَيْهِ السَّلَامُ فَقُلْتُ إِنَّ أَهْلَ الْمَوْقِفِ كَثِيرٌ قَالَ فَضَرَبَ بِبَصَرِهِ فَأَدَارَهُ فِيهِمْ ثُمَّ قَالَ ادْنُ مِنِّي يَا بَا عَبْدِ اللهِ فَدَنَوْتُ مِنْهُ فَقَالَ غُثَاءٌ يَأْتِي بِهِ الْمَوْجُ مِنْ كُلِّ مَكَانٍ وَ اللهِ مَا الْحَجُّ إِلَّا لَكُمْ لَا وَ اللهِ مَا يَتَقَبَّلُ اللهُ إِلَّا مِنْكُمْ

Mo’aadh Ibn Katheer reports, “(During Hajj) I saw at the Mawqif (the plains of Arafah) while the people were many in it. I went near (Imam) Abu Abdillah (al-Sadeq) (peace be on him) and said, ‘Surely, the people of Mawqif are many’.  Imam (peace be on him) cast his eyes and looked at the people. Then, he (peace be on him) said, ‘Come near me, O Aba Abdillah’. I went near him (peace be on him) and he said, ‘These are scums brought here by waves from all places. By Allah! Hajj is not for anyone except you. No, by Allah, Allah will not accept from anyone except you’.
