Based on the writer’s idea, Ayatollah Namaziwith direct reference to all traditional sources has added a large number of narrators to the previous collections and consequently increased their number up to 18000. According to writers studies those narrators that are mentioned in Mustaṭrafāt al-Ma‘ālī are also alphabetically listed by Kashshī in hisRijāl.
