حدثنا محمد بن علي ماجيلويه قال: حدثنا محمد بن يحيى العطار، عن محمد بن احمد عن ابراهيم بن اسحاق عن عبد الله بن حماد عن أبي بصير قال: قلت لابي عبد الله عليه السلام جعلت فداك الرجل يكون في السفر فيقطع عليه الطريق فيبقى عريانا في سراويل ولا يجد ما يسجد عليه يخاف إن سجد على الرمضاء احترقت وجهه، قال: يسجد على ظهر كفه فانها أحد المساجد.

1. Muhammad Bin Ali Majaylawiya narrated to us, from Muhammad Bin Yahya Al Ataar, from Muhammad Bin Ahmad, from Ibrahim Bin Is’haq, from Abdullah Bin Hamaad, from Abu Baseer who said, ‘I said to Abu Abdullah (a.s.), ‘May I be sacrificed for you (a.s.)! The man happens to be in a journey, so his way gets cut off (by bandits), so he remains naked in a trouser (only), and he does not find what to Prostrate upon. He fears that if he were to Prostrate upon the scorching sand, his face would burn’. He (a.s.) said: ‘He should Prostrate Upon the back of his palm, for it is one of the ‘Masaajids’ Prostration places’.
