10. Punishment for the one who neglects the Night Salat

Back to book

عنه، عن الوشاء، عن العلا بن رزين، عن محمد بن مسلم، عن أبي جعفر عليه السلام، وعن أبي عبد الله عليه السلام قال: ما من عبد الا وهو يتيقظ مرة أو مرتين في - الليل أو مرارا، فان قام والا فحج الشيطان فبال في أذنه، ألا يرى أحدكم إذا كان منه ذلك قام ثقيلا وكسلان.

1. From him, from Al Washa, from Al A’ala Bi Razeyn, from Muhammad Bin Muslim, (It has been narrated) from Abu Ja’far (a.s.), and from Abu Abdullah (a.s.) having said: ‘There is none from a servant except that he wakes up once, or twice during the night, or repeatedly. So he stands (for Salat), otherwise the Satan (la) comes and urinates in his ear. Have you not see one of you when he is from that, he stands heavy and sleepy?’

عنه، عن أبيه، عن صفوان، عن خضر أبي هاشم، عن محمد بن مسلم، عن أبي عبد الله عليه السلام، قال: ان لليل شيطانا يقال له الزهاء فإذا استيقظ العبد واراد القيام إلى الصلوة قال له: ليست ساعتك، ثم يستيقظ مرة أخرى، فيقول له: لم يأن لك، فما يزال كذلك يزيله ويحبسه حتى يطلع الفجر، فإذا طلع الفجر بال في اذنه ثم انصاع يمصع بذنبه فخرا ويصيح.

2. From him, from his father, from Safwan, from Khizr Abu Hisham, from Muhammad Bin Muslim, (It has been narrated) from Abu Abdullah (a.s.) having said: ‘During the night, a Satan (la) called Al-Zaha’a, when the servant wakes up and intends to stand for the Salat, says to him, ‘This is not your time’. Then he wakes up another time, so he says to him, ‘It has still not come to you’. So that does not cease to remain like that until the emergence of the dawn. So when the dawn emerges, he urinates in his ear, then prides (over himself) having defeated him by his sins, and yells’.
