52. The reason due to which the Prayer of the Praying one is not cut-off by something which passes by in front of himBack to book
أبي رحمه الله قال: حدثنا احمد بن ادريس عن محمد بن احمد عن علي ابن ابراهيم الجعفري عن ابى سليمان مولى ابى الحسن العسكري (ع) قال: سأله بعض مواليه وانا حاضر عن الصلاة يقطعها شئ يمر بين يدى المصلى؟ فقال لا ليست الصلاة تذهب هكذا بحيال صاحبها إنما تذهب مساوية لوجه صاحبها.
1. My father said, ‘Ahmad Bin Idrees narrated to us, from Muhammad Ahmad, from Ali Ibn Ibrahim Al Ja’fary, from Abu Suleyman, A slave of Abu Al-Hassan Al-Askary (a.s.) who said, ‘One of those in his (a.s.) Wilayah asked him (a.s.) about the Prayer, and I was present, ‘Can it be cut-off by something which passes by in front of the Praying one?’ So he (a.s.) said: ‘No! The Prayer does not go away (gets invalidated) like this, by (passing) about him, but rather, it goes away (gets invalidated), when it is equal to his face (of the Praying one)’.
