Narrations from Imams and the Prophet (PBUH) are the same

SHAFAQNA – One of the companions of Imam Sadeq (AS) asked him: Sometimes we hear a narration from you and doubt whether we heard it from you or your fathers? Imam (AS) replied: What you heard from me, narrate it from my father and what you heard from me, narrate it from the messenger of Allah (SWT) {PBUH} [1]. In another narration, Imam Sadeq (AS) said: My Hadith (narration) is my father’s Hadith and my father’s Hadith is my grandfather’s Hadith, and my grandfather’s hadith is from Imam hussain (AS) and Hadith of Imam Hussain (AS) is from Imam Hassan (AS) and Hadith of Imam Hassan (AS) is from Imam Ali (AS) and Hadith of Imam Ali (AS) is from the Prophet (PBUH) and words of the Prophet (PBUH) is from Allah (SWT) [2]. In the third Hadith, Imam Sadeq (AS) said: Whenever I provide you with an answer, that answer is from the Prophet (PBUH) and we will not say anything from ourselves [3].
