حدثنا جعفر بن محمد بن مسرور رحمه الله قال حدثنا الحسين بن محمد ابن عامر عن عمه عبد الله بن عامر عن محمد بن ابي عمير عن حماد عن الحلبي عن أبي عبد الله (ع) قال: سألته عن الرجل يقرأ السجدة وهو على ظهر دابته قال: يسجد حيث توجهت به فان رسول الله صلى الله عليه وآله كان يصلى على ناقته وهو مستقبل المدينة، يقول الله تعالى: (فاينما تولوا فثم وجه الله).


1. Ja’far Bin Muhammad Bin Masroor narrated to us, from Al Husayn Bin Muhammad Ibn Aamir, from his uncle Abdullah Bin Aamir, from Muhammad Bin Abu Umeyr, from Hamaad, from Halby, (The narrator says), ‘I asked Abu Abdullah (asws) about the man who recites the Prostration (Verse) and he is upon the back of his animal’. He (asws) said: ‘He should Prostrate wherever he is heading with it, for Rasool-Allah (saww) used to Pray upon his (saww) camel and he (saww) was facing Al-Medina. Allah (azwj) is Saying [2:115] therefore wherever you turn would be the Face of Allah’.
