Back to book

عنه، عن أبيه عن أحمد بن داود المزني قال: حدثنى هاشم الخلال، قال: دخلت أنا وأبو الصباح الكنانى، على أبي عبد الله عليه السلام، فقال له: يا أبا الصباح، ما تقول في هذه المساجد التي بنتها الحاج في طريق مكة؟ فقال بخ بخ تيك افضل المساجد، من بنى مسجدا كمفحص قطاة بنى الله له بيتا في الجنة. وفي رواية أبي عبيدة الحذاء، قال: بينا أنا بين مكة والمدينة أضع الاحجار كما يضع الناس، فقلت له، هذا من ذلك؟ - قال: نعم.


1. From him, from his father, from Ahmad Bin Dawood Al Mazny, from Hashim Al Khalal who said, ‘I and Abu Al-Sabah Al-Kanany came up to Abu Abdullah (a.s.), so he (a.s.) said to him: ‘O Abu Al-Sabah! What are you saying regarding these Masjids which the Pilgrims have built on the way to Makkah?’ So he said, ‘Yes, yes, these Masjids are preferable the one who builds a Masjid like a grouse bird, Allah (azwj) would build for him a house in the Paradise’. And in a report of Ubeydal Al Haza’a, said, ‘I was in between Makkah and Al-Medina, there were as many stones as there were people, so I said to him (a.s.), ‘This is from that?’ He (a.s.) said: ‘Yes’.
