17. Reason for the congregation

Back to book

حدثنا الحسين بن احمد بن ادريس رحمه الله قال: حدثنى أبي قال حدثنا محمد بن علي بن محبوب عن محمد بن الحسين بن ذبيان بن حكيم الازدي عن موسى النميري عن ابن أبي يعفور عن أبي عبد الله (ع) قال: إنما جعل الجماعة والاجتماع إلى الصلاة لكى يعرف من يصلى ممن لا يصلى ومن يحفظ مواقيت الصلاة ممن يضيع ولو لا ذلك لم يكن احدا أن يشهد على احد بصلاح لان من لم يصل في جماعة فلا صلاة له بين المسلمين، لان رسول الله صلى الله عليه وآله قال: لا صلاة لمن لم يصل في المسجد مع المسلمين إلا من علة.


1. Al Husayn Bin Ahmad Bin Idrees narrated to us, from his father, from Muhammad Bin Ali Bin Mahboub, from Muhammad Bin Al Husayn Bin Zibyan Bin Hakeem, from Musa Al Numeyri, from Ibn Abu Yafour, (It has been narrated) from Abu Abdullah (a.s.): ‘But rather, the congregation and the gathering to the Prayer has been Made to be in order to recognise the one who Prays and the one who does not Pray, and the one who preserves the timings of the Prayers and the one who wastes them, and had it not been for that, no one would become a testifier upon anyone with the righteousness, because the one who does not Pray in a congregation, so there is no Prayer for him in between the Muslims, because Rasool-Allah (saww) said: ‘There is no Prayer for the one who does not Pray in the Masjid along with the Muslims, except for a reason’.
