Back to book

عنه، عن أبيه البرقي، عن ابن فضال، عن عبد الله بن بكير، عن محمد بن هارون، قال: سمعت أبا عبد الله عليه السلام، يقول: من ترك صلوة العصر غير ناس لها حتى تفوته وتره الله أهله وماله يوم القيامة.


1. From him, from his father Al Barqy, from Ibn Fazaal, from Abu Abdullah Bin Bakeyr, from Muhammad Bin Haroun who said, ‘I heard Abu Abdullah (a.s.) saying: ‘The one who neglects the ‘Asr’ Salat without being forgetful for it, until he dies and Allah (azwj) would Make him bereft of his family and his wealth (which he sent forward) on the Day of Judgement’.




وعنه، عن محمد بن علي، عن حنان بن سدير، عن أبي سلام العبدي، قال: دخلت على أبي عبد الله عليه السلام، فقلت له ما تقول في رجل يؤخر الصلوة متعمدا؟ - قال لى: يأتي هذا يوم القيامة موتورا أهله وماله، قال: فقلت: جعلت فداك، وان كان من أهل الجنة؟ - قال نعم، قلت: فما منزلته في الجنة موتورا اهله وماله؟ - قال يتضيف أهلها ليس له فيها منزل.


2. And from him, from Muhammad Bin Ali, from Hanan in Sudeyr, from Abu Salam Al Abady who said, ‘I came up to Abu Abdullah (a.s.), so I said to him (a.s.), ‘What are you (a.s.) saying regarding a man who delays the Salat deliberately?’ He (a.s.) said to me: ‘He would come on the Day of Judgement, bereft of his family and his wealth’. I said, ‘May I be sacrificed for you (a.s.)! And even if he is from the inhabitants of the Paradise?’ He (a.s.) said: ‘Yes’. I said, ‘So what would be his status in the Paradise being bereft of his family and his wealth?’ He (a.s.) said: ‘He would be weakened, there would be no status for him therein’.




وعنه، عن محمد بن علي، عن علي بن النعمان، عن ابن مسكان، عن أبي - بصير، قال: قال أبو جعفر عليه السلام، ما خدعوك عن شئ فلا يخدعوك في العصر، صلها والشمس بيضاء نقية فان رسول الله صلى الله عليه وآله قال: الموتور أهله وماله المضيع لصلوة العصر، قلت: وما الموتور اهله وماله؟ - قال: لا يكون له في الجنة أهل ولا مال، قلت: وما تضييعها؟ - قال يدعها والله حتى تصفر الشمس وتغيب.


3. And from him, from Muhammad Bin Ali, from Ali in Al No’man, from Ibn Muskaan, from Abu Baseer who said, ‘Abu Ja’far (a.s.) said: ‘Whenever you are deceived by from something, so do not be deceived with regards to Al-Asr (Salat). Pray it, and the sun is pure and white, for Rasool-Allah (saww) said: ‘The bereft of his family and his wealth is the waster of Al-Asr Salat’. I said, ‘And what is the one bereft of his family and his wealth?’ He (a.s.) said: ‘The one who would not have for him, in the Paradise, neither family nor wealth’. I said, ‘And what is the wasting of it?’ He (a.s.) said: ‘By Allah (azwj)! Leaving it until the sun turns yellow and disappears’.
