Zakariya b. Adam

. 'Abd Allah b. Sa'd al-Ash'ari al-Qummi. He is trustworthy and great with great position. He was of great importance with Imam al-Rida, peace be on him. He has a book. 1 Al-Kashi narrated that he heard from one of our companions on the authority of Abu Talib 'Abd Allah b. al-Salt al-Qummi, who said: "I (i.e. Abu Ta`lib) went in to Abu Ja'far, the Second, peace be on him, at the end of his span of life and heard him say: 'May Allah reward well on my behalf Safwan b. Yahya, Mohammed b. Sinan, and Zakariya b. Adam, for they are loyal to me.'" 
Mohammed b. Hamza reported on the authority of Zakariya b. Adam, who said: "I (i.e. Zakariya b. Adam) said to al-Rida, peace be on him: 'I want to leave my household, for the foolish are many among them.' He (al-Rida) said: 'Don't do (that), for affliction is repelled from your household through you just as affliction is repelled from the people of Baghdad through Abu al-Hasan al-Kazim, peace be on him.
What indicates his great ability and his exalted position is that which narrated by 'Ali b. al-Musayyab, who said: [My house is distant and I cannot come to you every time, so from whom shall I take the principal features (ma'alim) of my religion? He, peace be on him, replied:] "(Take them) from Zakariya b. Adam al-Qummi, who is entrusted (by me) with religion and the world." 'Ali b. al-Musayyab said: "When I departed, I went to Zakariya b. Adam and asked him about my (religious) needs." 
Mohammed b. Ishaq and al-Hasan b. Mohammed narrated: "Three months after the death of Zakariya b. Adam, we went out in order to make the pilgrimage. On part of the road, we received his (al-Rida's) letter, peace be on him. In it has been mentioned: 'I have mentioned the decree of Allah toward the late man (i.e. Zakariya b. Adam), may Allah have mercy on him on the day when he was born, the day when he died, and the day when he will be raised from the dead. 
Throughout the days of his lifetime, he lived knowing the truth, believing in it, patient and having a fore-thought for the truth, performing what Allah and His Messenger loved. He, may Allah have mercy on him, passed away while he did not break (the oath of allegiance) nor did he changed it. May Allah reward him just as He rewards His Prophet and give him his best wishes. You mentioned the entrusted man, but you do not know our view regarding him, and we have knowledge of him more that what you have described�he meant al-Hasan b. Mohammed b. 'Umran. " This account reveals the exalted position of Zakariya b. Adam with the Imam, peace be on him.
