حدثنا محمد بن الحسن قال: حدثنا محمد بن الحسن الصفار عن محمد ابن عيسى عن القاسم بن يحيى عن جده الحسن بن راشد عن ابى بصير عن ابى عبد الله (ع) قال حدثنى أبى، عن ابيه عن آبائه عليهم السلام قال أمير المؤمنين (ع) إذا فرغ أحدكم من الصلاة فليرفع يديه إلى السماء ولينصب في الدعاء فقال ابن سبا يا أمير المؤمنين اليس الله في كل مكان؟ قال: بلى قال فلم يرفع يديه إلى السماء فقال أو ما تقرأ (وفي الاسماء رزقكم وما توعدون) فمن أين يطلب الرزق إلا من موضع الرزق، وموضع الرزق وما وعد الله السماء.


1. Muhammad Bin Al Hassan narrated to us, from Muhammad Bin Al Hassan Al Saffar, from Muhammad Ibn Isa, from Al Qasim Bin Yahya, from his grandfather Al Hassan Bin Rashid, from Abu Baseer, Abu Abdullah (asws) has said: ‘My (asws) father (asws) narrated to me (asws), from his (asws) father (asws), from his (asws) forefathers (asws) having said: ‘Amir Al-Momineen (asws) said: ‘Whenever one of you is free from the Prayer, so let him raise his hands towards the sky, and he should focus in the supplication’. So Ibn Saba said, ‘O Amir Al-Momineen (asws)! Is Allah (azwj) not in every place?’ He (asws) said: ‘Yes’. He said, ‘So why should he raise his hands towards the sky?’ So he (asws) said: ‘Or have you not read [51:22] And in the sky is your sustenance and what you are threatened with? So, from when should he seek the sustenance except from the place of the sustenance, and the place of the sustenance, and what Allah (azwj) has Promised, the sky?’
