It is written in the book “Shiftighan Hadrat Mahdi (May Almighty Allah hasten his relief)”:
A Godly scholar, a Qur’anic commentator Hujjatul Islam wal Muslimeen Hajj Sayyid Hasan Dur Afashan is fortunate to witness the remaining of Allah’s proof, the leader of the time (May our soul be sacrifice for him), although he narrate this story to a reputable scholar, lecturer, noble researcher, knowledgeable and enamored of the pure and infallible household of the Prophet (peace be upon them) Hadrat Hujjatul Islam wal Muslimeen Hajj Sayyid Murtada Mujtahidi Sistani (may his blessings continue).
Now we are back to the blessed money: Hajj Sayyid Hasan Dur Afshan said: in a journey to the house of God which I did on behalf of the leader of the time (peace be upon him) together with a friend of mine by name “Hajj Baman” we conditioned ourselves that I shall do what ever he commanded me to do and he shall do what ever I commanded him to do. While in Jeddah I said to him: I brought the travelling equipment, you should get sugar cube so that I will prepare tea; I prepared the tea and at that time it came to my memory that, will my money that is (300) three hundred Tuman be enough for me for the journey expenses or not?
At this very moment I saw a person in an opposite room to me, though I extend my greetings to him and I said: I have a demand, go ahead he said; he came and sat at my left side while his hand is on my shoulder and said: does (300) three hundred Tuman enough for you?
I made some statement in Persian language that is not expected of me because I don’t know who the man is. The honorable man smiled and spoke to me in Persian language that does thirty Tuman enough for you in order to give or to do what ever you want to do with it.
Drink tea, I said to him; no he said and left, then I said to myself that who is this man? I stood up to follow him up but I did not see him; then I started weeping. At this time “Hajj Baman” came and inquired about the cause of my weeping. I said: this is the place of weeping but I concealed the incidence to him. I went to Mecca and I circumambulate round the house of Allah and offered my duty as demanded by Almighty Allah.
After offering prayer in the status of Hadrat Ibrahim (peace be upon him), I saw a person seating by my side and we spoke to each other, at this time I heard one of my companion saying: Mr. Dur Afshan; I am back and I saw the owner of the voice but he was in bending position (Ruku’), because I turned my face and by returning back I didn’t saw any one by my side any more.
In this journey I was fortunate to be at the service of the leader of the time (peace be upon him) two times but through out I did not recognized this great man.
When I went to the house of Allah I rent a house in “Jabal al-Mishraq” where there is outburst of inequity because three people rented the place, then I came out of the house and sat down on a bench. At this moment I saw “Hajj Rida Allaf” may Allah have mercy on him and said: I brought my sister in an unofficial way to Mecca but now I have exhausted my money, I said to myself Mr. Dur Afshan is my reading teacher and I will inquire from him that I need some money.
Then I remembered the statement of Imam (peace be upon him) and I said: how much money you need? Five hundred Tuman, he said; I took five hundred from my bag and gave it to him.
After him “Hajj Mir Asadullah” may Allah have mercy on him came and said: I went to circumambulation and my money is taken. I already said it that we use whatever we have together. It is money I need, he said.
How much you need?
I need six hundred Tuman that I will collect it from the people of Shiraz to return it back to you. I draw my hand inside the bag and gave him six hundred Tuman, He said.
During that journey I spent 110 Riyal for my sacrifice and all my expenses are from that money. After the pilgrimage I went to the holy city of Medina and after the visit I bought Yemeni cloth for shroud and many other things from that money. From Medina I went to Jeddah. In Jeddah “Hajj Hasan Purbadakhshan” said: whoever want to accompany me to the holy land of Karbala and there is no difference whether I took him to Karbala or to Tehran but whoever wanted to accompany me should pay one hundred and fifty Tuman. I gave him one hundred and fifty Tuman from that money and we went to Iraq. Reaching there he said to me weeping in this place is with you. From Karbala we went to the holy city of Najaf and we also went to see the son of my uncle in “Hush”. I inquired of his condition. He said: we are fine but money was not sent to me and I am indebted. I said to him, how much is your debt? Three hundred Tuman, he said; I also gave him three hundred Tuman.
After the visit I went with him to the presence of Ayatollah Hakeem, I gave some part of the money to him as part of the portion of Imam (peace be upon him) and I receive my receipt. In the courtyard of the holy shrine of Imam Ali (peace be upon him) I met with “Hajj Gulam Ali Rida’iyan Turbati” and said: my friend’s money has exhausted, you should give two hundred Tuman and to return back to you in the holy city of Mash’had. I gave him the two hundred Tuman. From Najaf we went to Karbala to the mother of “Hajj Ali Akbar Zabuli Muqaddam” she is having a daughter who is wife to a person called “Habib” although there was a dispute between them and he divorced the lady.
She said: “Ashraf” has been divorced and I want to take her unofficially to Iran and she is in need of money. How much does she need? I asked. She is in need of three hundred Tuman in order to give to the smugglers at “Nas border”. I gave the three hundred Tuman from the bag to her.
After the visiting I wanted to visit Hadrat Imam Hadi and Askari (peace be upon them) on returning I saw one of our friend’s wife crying. I inquired from her, why are you crying? She said: my money has finish and I brought my necklace for sale which cost me seven hundred Tuman in Mash’had but here they don’t buy it more than three hundred Tuman. I said to her how much did you need? She said: one hundred Tuman. I gave her hundred Tuman from that bag.
The daughter of “Hajj Ali Allaf” also demanded one hundred Tuman from me as loan that my husband shall return it to you in Mash’had; I gave the one hundred Tuman to her.
In a nutshell in this journey any body and any amount requested from me was given out with the blessing of the leader of the time. After returning to Mash’had I said to my son Mr. Sayyid Husain: did you have debt or no? He said: it is four hundred Tuman. I said: may Allah bless the treasure of the leader of the time (peace be upon him) and I gave him the money and I narrated the incidence to him and consequently the money disappeared!.
