Ayatollah Khoei expressed various views by other scholars besides expressing his views on general reliabilities. Concerning People of Consensus, he believes that transmission of hadith does not mean all the hadiths narrated by each of people of consensus by Imams, but the mursal hadith or the hadith narrated by the poor narrator is acceptable, expressing the majesty and position of hadith. Concerning An Al-Saghat, he believes that Ja'far ibn Bashir has narrated from the poor narrators such as Saleh bin al-Hakam and Abdullah bin Mohammed Jaefi, however how it can say that he has been being narrated from reliability. Ahmad ibn Muhammad ibn Abi Nasr as narrated by Shaykh Tusi is among three jurists who have been being narrated from reliability. Abu al-Qasim al-Khoei has mentioned name of 115 Sheikhs among which 53 members are reliable and others are unknown, nonsense or poor. He said that there is no accompaniment between accompany and reliability, as we do not know the prophet’s accompanions just due to their accompaniment with him. Seeking for mercy and forgiveness are the assignments recommended in religion, mentioned that it can seek forgiveness for the unfaithful believers. Therefore, if the people like Sheikh Mofid or Sheikh Sadough seek forgiveness for a person, this does not mean their reliability.
