56. The reason due to which the dyed one should not Pray

Back to book

ابى رحمه الله قال: حدثنا سعد بن عبد الله عن احمد بن محمد عن البزنطى غيره، عن أبان عن مسمع بن عبد الملك قال: سمعت أبا عبد الله (ع) يقول لا يصلى المختضب، قلت: جعلت فداك ولم؟ قال انه محتصر.

1. My father said, ‘Sa’ad Bin Abdullah narrated to us, from Ahmad Bin Muhammad, from Al Bazanty or someone else, from Aban, from Masma Bin Abdul Malik who said, ‘I heard Abu Abdullah (a.s.) saying: ‘The dyed one should not Pray’. I said, ‘May I be sacrificed for you (a.s.)! And why?’ He (a.s.) said: ‘He is restricted’. (Note In those days the one who dyed his beard or moustache used to wear a wrapping over it.)
