Imams follow the qirat of Ubai bin Kaab

محمد بن يحيى، عن أحمد بن محمد، عن علي بن الحكم، عن عبدالله بن فرقد والمعلى بن خنيس قالا: كنا عند أبي عبدالله (عليه السلام) ومعنا ربيعة الرأي فذكرنا فضل القرآن فقال أبوعبدالله (عليه السلام): إن كان ابن مسعود لا يقرأ على قراء تنا فهو ضال، فقال ربيعة: ضال؟ فقال: نعم ضال، ثم قال أبوعبدالله (عليه السلام): أما نحن فنقرأ على قراءة أبي

 

Muhammad b. Yahya from Ahmad b. Muhammad from `Ali b. al-Hakam from `Abdullah b. Farqad and al-Mu`alla b. Khunays. They said: We were with Abu `Abdillah and with us was Rabi`a ar-Ra’y. So we mentioned the virtue of the Quran and Abu `Abdillah said: If Ibn Mas`ud did not recite upon our recitation then he was astray. So Rabi`a said: Astray? So he said: Yes, astray. Then Abu `Abdillah said: As to us, then we recite upon the recitation of Ubayy.
