Tradition

Imam Ali b. Moosa al-Reza (a.s.) relates on the authority of his infallible ancestors (a.s.) who report from Jaabir b. Abdullah – Allah’s Prophet (s.a.w.a.) was at the Dome of Adam. I saw Bilal Habashi come out with the water left over from the Prophet (s.a.w.a.) making his ablutions. The people gathered around him and each took some of that water with which he washed his face.Whoever could not get any water would touch the other people and get wet and then rub his hands on his face. They used to do the same thing with the water left over from Ameerul Momineen’s (a.s.) ablutions.
[T OYOAK chap 31 trad 320]
