Back to book

1-43 حدثنا أبي رضي الله عنه قال: حدثنا علي بن إبراهيم بن هاشم، عن أبيه، عن النوفلي، عن السكوني، عن جعفر بن محمد، عن أبيه عليهما السلام قال: قال رسول الله صلى الله عليه وآله: إن الله تبارك وتعالى أهدى إلي وإلى أمتي هدية لم يهدها إلى أحد من الامم، كرامة من الله لنا، قالوا: وما ذاك يا رسول الله؟ قال: الافطار في في السفر، والتقصير في الصلاة، فمن لم يفعل ذلك فقد رد على الله عز وجل هديته


1-43 (The compiler of the book narrated) that his father - may God be pleased with him - narrated that Ali ibn Ibrahim ibn Hashim quoted on the authority of his father, on the authority of Al-Nawfaly, on the authority of Al-Sakoony, on the authority of Ja’far ibn Muhammad as-Sadiq (MGB), on the authority of his father (MGB) that God’s Prophet (MGB) said, “Indeed God the Blessed the Sublime has granted me and my nation a gift that He has not granted to any other nation. This is an honor from God for us.” He was asked, “O Prophet of God! What is it?” He said, “It is breaking the fast and shortening our prayers (while we are) on a journey.” Whoever doesn’t do so has turned down God’s gifts.”
