Back to book

عنه، عن أبيه، عن الحسن بن علي بن فضال، عن عبد الله بن بكير، عن عبيد بن زرارة، قال: سألت أبا عبد الله عليه السلام، عن قول الله عزوجل " ومن يكفر بالايمان فقد حبط عمله " قال: ترك الصلوة الذي أقر به، قلت: فما موضع ترك العمل حين يدعه أجمع؟ - قال: منه الذي يدع الصلوة متعمدا لا من سكر ولا من علة.


1. From him, from his father, from Al Hassan Bin Ali Bin Fazaal, from Abdullah Bin Bakeyr, from Ubeyd Bin Zarara who said, ‘I asked Abu Abdullah (a.s.) about the Words of Allah (azwj) Mighty and Majestic [5:5] and whoever denies the faith, his work indeed would be Confiscated. He (a.s.) said: ‘Leaving the Salat which he has accepted by’. I said, ‘So what is the position that neglecting of the deed would (equate to) neglecting all of it?’ He (a.s.) said: ‘Those who neglect the Salat deliberately, not from being intoxicated, nor from an illness’.




عنه: عن ابن فضال، عن عبد الله بن بكير، عن زرارة، قال: سمعت أبا جعفر عليه السلام يقول: دخل رجل مسجدا فيه رسول الله صلى الله عليه وآله، فصلى فخفف سجوده دون ما ينبغى أو دون ما يكون من السجود، فقال رسول الله صلى الله عليه وآله: نقر كنقر الغراب، لو مات مات على غير دين محمد صلى الله عليه وآله. وفي رواية ابي بصير، عن أبي جعفر عليه السلام، قال: قال رسول الله صلى الله عليه وآله: لا ينال شفاعتي من استخف بصلوته ولا يرد علي الحوض لا والله. وفي رواية ابن محبوب رفع الحديث إلى أبي عبد الله عليه السلام، قال: قال رسول الله صلى الله عليه وآله في مرضه الذي توفى فيه وأغمى عليه ثم أفاق فقال: لا ينال شفاعتي من أخر الصلوة بعد وقتها.


2. From him, from Ibn Fazaal, from Abdullah Bin Bakeyr, from Zarara who said, ‘I heard Abu Ja’far (a.s.) saying: ‘A man entered a Masjid and in it was Rasool-Allah (saww). So he Prayed, and (excessively) shortened his Prostration unnecessarily as he was not performing Prostrations. So Rasool-Allah (saww) said: ‘He pecked like the pecking of the crow. Had he died, he would have died upon a Religion other than that of Muhammad (saww)’. And in a report of Abu Baseer, (It has been narrated) from Abu Ja’far (a.s.) having said: ‘Rasool-Allah (saww) said: ‘He will not attain my (saww) intercession, the one who belittles his Salat, nor will he return to me (a.s.) at the Fountain, no, by Allah (azwj)!’ And in a report of Ibn Mahboub, In a Hadeeth from Abu Abdullah (a.s.), it is stated ‘Rasool-Allah (saww) said during his (saww) illness in which he (saww) passed away, and fainted, then woke up, so he (saww) said: ‘He will not achieve my (saww) intercession, the one who delayed the Salat after its time’.




محمد بن علي وغيره، عن ابن فضال، عن المثنى، عن أبي بصير قال: دخلت على أم حميدة أعزيها بأبي عبد الله عليه السلام فبكت وبكيت لبكائها، ثم قالت: يا أبا محمد، لو رأيت أبا عبد الله عليه السلام عند الموت لرأيت عجبا، فتح عينيه ثم قال: أجمعو إلى كل من كان بينى وبينه قرابة، قالت: فما تركنا أحدا الا جمعناه، قالت: فنظر إليهم ثم قال: ان شفاعتنا لا تنال مستخفا بالصلوة.


3. Muhammad Bin Ali and someone else, from Ibn Fazaal, from Al Masny, from Abu Baseer who said, ‘I came up to Umm Hameeda to (offer my) condolences to her for Abu Abdullah (a.s.). So she cried, and I cried upon her crying. Then she said, ‘O Abu Muhammad! If only you could have seen Abu Abdullah (a.s.) during his (a.s.) passing away, you would have seen a wonder. He (a.s.) opened his (a.s.) eyes, then said: ‘Gather to me every one whom between him and me (a.s.) there is a relationship’. She said, ‘So we did not leave anyone except that we gathered to him (a.s.)’. She said, ‘So he (a.s.) looked at them, then said: ‘Our (a.s.) intercession would not be attained by the one who belittles the Salat’.




عنه، عن محمد بن علي، عن وهب بن حفص، عن أبي بصير، قالت: سمعت أبا - عبد الله عليه السلام يقول: ان رسول الله صلى الله عليه وآله قال: يا ايها الناس أقيموا صفوفكم وامسحوا بمناكبكم لئلا يكون فيكم خلل ولا تخالفوا فيخالف الله بين قلوبكم أللوانى أراكم من خلفي. وفي رواية أبي بصير، عن أبي عبد الله عليه السلام، قال: قال علي عليه السلام: من لم يقم صلبه في الصلوة فلا صلوة له.


4. From him, from Muhammad Bin Ali, from Wahab Bin Hafs, from Abu Baseer who said, ‘I heard Abu Abdullah (a.s.) saying: ‘Rasool-Allah (saww) said: ‘O you people! Establish your rows, let your shoulders touch (each other) in case there is disorder among you, and do not disagree so Allah (azwj) would Cause disagreement in between your hearts. I (saww) can see you all from behind me (saww)’. And in a report of Abu Baseer, (It has been narrated) from Abu Abdullah (a.s.) having said: ‘Ali (a.s.) said: ‘The one who does not stand solidly, there is no Salat for him’.




وعنه، عن محمد بن علي، عن أبن محبوب، عن جميل بن صالح، عن بريد بن معاوية العجلى، عن أبي جعفر عليه السلام، قال: قال رسول الله صلى الله عليه وآله: ما بين المسلم وبين أن يكفر الا ترك صلوة فريضة متعمدا أو يتهاون بها فلا يصليها.


5. And from him, from Muhammad Bin Ali, from Ibn Mahoub, from Jameel Bin Salih, from Bureyd Bin Muawiya Al Ajaly, (It has been narrated) from Abu Ja’far (a.s.) having said: ‘Rasool-Allah (saww) said: ‘There is nothing in between a Muslim and him disbelieving except avoidance of the Obligatory Salat deliberately, or complacency with it, so he does not Pray it’.




وعنه، عن الحكم بن مسكين، عن خضر، عن أبي عبد الله عليه السلام، قال: سمعته يقول: إذا قام العبد إلى الصلوة أقبل الله عليه بوجهه فلا يزال مقبلا عليه حتى يلتفت ثلاث مرات، فإذا التفت ثلاث مرات أعرض عنه.


6. And from him, from Al Hakam Bin Maskeyn, from Khizr, (It has been narrated) from Abu Abdullah (a.s.), ‘I heard him (a.s.) saying: ‘When the servant stands to Pray, Allah (azwj) Faces him by His (azwj) Face. So He (azwj) does not cease to Face him until he turns away three times. So if he turns away three times, He (azwj) Turns away from him’.




وعنه، عن أبي عمران الارمني، عن عبد الله بن عبد الرحمن الانصاري، عن هشام الجواليقي، عن أبي عبد الله عليه السلام، قال: قال رسول الله صلى الله عليه وآله: من صلى الفريضة لغير وقتها رفعت له سوداء مظلمة تقول له: " ضيعك الله كما ضيعتني " وأول ما يسأل العبد إذا وقف بين يدي الله عزوجل عن صلواته، فان زكت صلوته زكا سائر عمله وان لم تزك صلوته لم يزك عمله.


7. And from him, from Abu Imran Al Armany, from Abdullah Bin Abdul Rahman Al Ansary, from Hisham Al Jawalayqi, (It has been narrated) from Abu Abdullah (a.s.) having said: ‘Rasool-Allah (saww) said: ‘The one who Prays the Obligatory Salat at other than its (Prescribed) time, a dark blackness is Raised for him saying to him: ‘May Allah (azwj) Waste you as you have wasted me’. And the first of what the servant would be asked about when he is Paused in front of Allah (azwj) Mighty and Majestic would be about his Salat. So if his Salat succeeds, the rest of his deeds would succeed, and if his Salat does not succeed, his deeds would not succeed’.




عنه، عن البرقى، عن صفوان بن يحيى، عن هارون بن خارجة، عن أبي - بصير، عن أبي عبد الله عليه السلام، قال: الصلوة وكل بها ملك ليس له عمل غيرها فإذا فرغ منها قبضها ثم صعد بها فان كانت مما يقبل قبلت وان كانت مما لا يقبل قيل: ردها على عبدى فيأتى بها حتى يضرب بها وجهه ثم يقول: أف لك ما يزال لك عمل يعيينى. وفي رواية عبد الله بن ميمون القداح، عن أبي عبد الله عليه السلام، قال: أبصر علي بن أبي طالب صلوات الله عليه رجلا ينقر بصلوته فقال: منذ كم صليت بهذه الصلوة؟ - فقال له الرجل: منذ كذا وكذا، فقال: مثلك عند الله كمثل الغراب إذا ما نقر، لو مت مت على غير ملة أبي القاسم محمد صلوات الله عليه وآله، ثم قال علي عليه السلام: ان أسرق الناس من سرق صلوته.


8. From him, from Al Barqy, from Safwan Bin yahya, from Haroun Bin Kharjat, from Abu Baseer, (It has been narrated) from Abu Abdullah (a.s.) having said: ‘The Salat an Angel is Allocated with it who has no other work except for it. So when he is free from (Salat) it, (the Angel) captures it and ascends with it. So if it was from what is Acceptable, it is Accepted, and if it was from what is not Acceptable, He (azwj) Says: “Return it to My (azwj) servant”. So (the Angel) comes with it until he strikes with it upon his face, they says: ‘Uff to you! Your deed does not cease to exhaust me’. And in a report of Abdullah Bin Maymoun Al Qadah, (It has been narrated) from Abu Abdullah (a.s.) having said: ‘Ali (a.s.) Bin Abu Talib (a.s.) saw a man pecking with his Salat, so he (a.s.) said: ‘Since how long have you been Salat with this (kind of) Salat?’ So the man said to him (a.s.), ‘Since such and such (a time)’. So he (a.s.) said: ‘Your example in the Presence of Allah (azwj) is like the example of the crow when it pecks. If you had died, you would have died upon a Religion other than that of Abu Al-Qasim Muhammad (saww)’. Then Ali (a.s.) said: ‘The biggest thief among the people is the one who steals his (own) Salat’.




وعنه، عن محمد بن علي، عن فضال، عن سعيد بن غزوان، عن اسماعيل بن أبي زياد، عن أبي عبد الله عليه السلام، قال: قال رسول الله صلى الله عليه وآله: لا يزال الشيطان هائبا لابن آدم ذعرا منه ما صلى الصلوات الخمس لوقتهن.


9. And from him, from Muhammad Bin Ali, from Fazaal, from Saeed Bin Gazwaan, from Ismail Bin Abu Ziyad, (It has been narrated) from Abu Abdullah (a.s.) having said: ‘Rasool-Allah (saww) said: ‘The Satan (la) does not cease to be fearful of the son of Adam (as) and panics from him, when he Prays the five Salat on their (Prescribed) time’.
