47. The reason due to which drinking the wine, when it is drunk, one’s Prayer is not Counted for forty mornings (days)

Back to book

حدثنا الحسين بن احمد رحمه الله عن أبيه قال: حدثنا احمد بن محمد ابن عيسى، عن الحسين بن خالد قال قلت للرضا (ع) إنا روينا، عن النبي صلى الله عليه وآله أن من شرب الخمر لم تحسب صلاته أربعين صباحا فقال: صدقوا، فقلت وكيف لا تحسب صلاته أربعين صباحا لا أقل من ذلك ولا أكثر؟ قال: لان الله تبارك وتعالى قدر خلق الانسان فصير النطفة أربعين يوما ثم نقلها فصيرها علقة أربعين يوما ثم نقلها فصيرها مضغة أربعين يوما وهكذا إذا شرب الخمر بقيت في مثانته على قدر ما خلق منه وكذلك يجتمع غذاؤه واكله وشربه تبقى في مثانته أربعين يوما.


1. Al Husayn Bin Ahmad narrated to us, from his father, from Ahman Bin Muhammad Ibn Isa, from Al Husayn Bin Khalid who said, ‘I said to Al-Reza (asws), ‘We are reporting from the Prophet (saww) that the one who drinks the wine, his Prayer is not Counted for forty mornings (days)’. So he (asws) said: ‘They speak the truth’. So I said, ‘And how come the Prayer is not Counted for forty mornings (days), not any less from that, nor more?’ He (asws) said: ‘Because Allah (azwj) Blessed and High Measure the Creation of the human being, so the seed came to be for forty days, then it was transformed, so it became a clot for forty days, then it was transformed, so it became a lump for forty days. And this is how, when the wine is drunk, it remains in his (gall) bladder upon a measurement of what is Created from it. And similar to that, his nourishment, and his eating and his drinking, remain in his (gall) bladder for forty days’.
