Back to book

5-77 حدثنا ابي رضي الله عنه قال: حدثنا سعد بن عبد الله، عن محمد بن الحسين بن ابي الخطاب قال: حدثني صفوان بن يحيى، عمن ذكره، عن ابي عبد الله عليه السلام قال: ان أمير المؤمنين عليه السلام نهى عن الصلاة في خمسة مساجد بالكوفة: مسجد الاشعث بن قيس الكندي، ومسجد جرير بن عبد الله البجلي، ومسجد سماك بن مخرمة، ومسجد شبث بن ربعي ومسجد تيم، قال: وكان أمير المؤمنين عليه السلام اذا نظر إلى مسجدهم قال: هذه بقعة تيم، ومعناه إنهم قعدوا عنه لا يصلون معه عداوة له وبغضا. لعنهم الله

5-77 (The compiler of the book narrated) that his father - may God be pleased with him - narrated that Sa’ed ibn Abdullah quoted Muhammad ibn al-Hussein ibn Abil Khat’tab, on the authority of Safvan ibn Yahya, on the authority of someone who quoted on the authority of Aba Abdullah as-Sadiq (MGB), “The Commander of the Faithful Imam Ali (MGB) admonished against praying in five of the mosques in Kufa: the Mosque of Al-Ashas ibn Qays al-Kindi; the Mosque of Jarir ibn Abdullah al-Bajaly; the Mosque of Samak ibn Makhrama; the Mosque of Sheis ibn Robee and the Mosque of Tayyim. Whenever Ali (MGB) passed by the Mosque of Tayyim, he (MGB) said, ‘This is Tayyim’s site.’ His intention was that they built this mosque to gather there and oppose him (MGB). May God damn them.”
