عنه، عن القاسم بن عروة، عن عبد الحميد، عن محمد بن مسلم، عن أبي - جعفر عليه السلام، قال: ثلاثة لا يقبل الله لهم صلوة، منهم الديوث الذي يفجر بامرأته. وفي رواية محمد بن قيس، عن أبي جعفر عليه السلام، قال: سمعته يقول: عرض ابليس لنوح عليه السلام وهو قائم يصلي، فحسده على حسن صلوته، فقال يا نوح: ان الله عزوجل خلق جنة عدن بيده، وغرس أشجارها واتخذ قصورها وشق أنهارها، ثم اطلع إليها فقال: قد أفلح المؤمنون لا وعزتي وجلالى لا يسكنها ديوث.


1. From him, from Al Qasim Bin Urwat, from Abdul Hameed, from Muhammad Bin Muslim, (It has been narrated) from Abu Ja’far (a.s.) having said: ‘Three (types of people) from whom Allah (azwj) will not Accept the Salat, among them is the cuckold (husband of an unfaithful wife) who is immoral with his wife’. And in a report of Muhammad Bin Qays, (It has been narrated) from Abu Ja’far (a.s.), said, ‘I heard him (a.s.) saying: ‘Iblees (la) presented himself (la) to Noah (as) whilst he (as) was offering Salat. So he (la) envied him (as) upon the beauty of his (as) prayer, so he (la) said, ‘O Noah (as)! Allah (azwj) Mighty and Majestic Created the Garden of Eden with His (azwj) Hands, and Planted its trees, and Constructed its castles, and split its rivers, then Notified towards it, so He (azwj) Said: ‘The Believers have succeeded. No! By My (azwj) Honour and My (azwj) Majesty, I (azwj) will not Settle therein a cuckold (husband of an unfaithful wife)’.
