Abū Saʿid Sahl b. Ziyād al-Ādami al-Razī (Arabic:أبوسعید سهل بن زیاد الآدمی الرازی) (d. about 255/868) is a Shi'a hadith narrator who has narrated a lot of hadiths. He was expelled from Qom accused of Ghuluww. He is among the companions of Imam al-Jawad (a), Imam al-Hadi (a), and Imam al-'Askari (a).

There are three opinions about him in rijal:

  1. He is reliable (Thiqa): al-Shaykh al-Tusi, Wahid Bihbahani, Muhaddith Nuri, and Bahr al-'Ulum said that he is Thiqa.
  2. He is unreliable in hadith transmission (Da'if al-riwaya): al-Shaykh al-Saduq, al-Najashi, Ibn Ghada'iri and Ayatollah al-Khoei said that he is unreliable in hadith transmission.
  3. Accepting his narrations:al-Majlisi said that although he is unreliable in hadith transmission , the hadiths that he has narrated are accepted.

His name is mentioned in more than 2300 chains of narrators. He lived for a while in Qom; however Ahmad b. Muhammad b. 'Isa al-Ash'ari expelled him from Qom accusing him of lying and Ghuluww. After that he resided in Rey. Al-Tawhid and al-Nawadir are his books.
