Back to book

عنه، عن جعفر بن محمد الاشعري، عن القداح، عن أبي عبد الله عليه السلام، قال: اشترط رسول الله صلى الله عليه وآله على جيران المسجد شهود الصلوة وقال لينتهين أقوام لا يشهدون الصلوة أو لآمرن مؤذنا يؤذن ثم يقيم ثم آمر رجلا من أهل بيتى و هو علي (عليه السلام) فليحرقن على أقوام بيوتهم بحزم الحطب لا يأتون الصلوة.


1. From him, from Ja’far Bin Muhammad Al Ashary, from Al Qadah, (It has been narrated) from Abu Abdullah (a.s.) having said: ‘Rasool-Allah (saww) kept a condition to the neighbours of the Masjid to be present for the Salat, and said to the people that they would have to be present for the Salat, or by the call of the Muezzin when he calls for it. Then he (saww), stood (for the Salat), then ordered a man from the people (a.s.) of his (saww) Household, and he (a.s.) was Ali (a.s.), that he (a.s.) should burn down the houses of the people by the firewood if they were not to be present for the Salat’.




عنه، عن الوشاء، عن عبد الله بن سنان، عن أبي عبد الله عليه السلام، قال: صلى رسول الله صلى الله عليه وآله الفجر فلما انصرف أقبل بوجهه على أصحابه فسأل عن أناس هل حضروا الصلوة؟ - قالوا: لا يا رسول الله، قال: أغيب هم؟ - قالوا لا يا رسول الله؟ - فقال: أما انه ليس من صلوة أشد على المنافقين من هذه الصلوة والعشاء. وفي رواية زرارة، عن أبي جعفر عليه السلام، قال: من ترك الجماعة رغبة عنها وعن جماعة المؤمنين من غير علة فلا صلوة له. وفي رواية محمد بن علي الحلبي عن أبي عبد الله عليه السلام، قال: من خلع جماعة المسلمين قدر شبر خلع ربق الايمان من عنقه. وفي رواية أبي بصير، عن أبي عبد الله عليه السلام، قال: من سمع النداء من جيران المسجد فلم يجب فلا صلوة له.


2. From him, from Al Washa, from Abdullah Bin Sinan, (It has been narrated) from Abu Abdullah (a.s.) having said: ‘Rasool-Allah (saww) Prayed the Dawn Salat, So when he (saww) finished, turned his (saww) face towards his (saww) companions, so he (saww) asked about the people whether they attended the Salat? They said, ‘No, O Rasool-Allah (saww)!’ He (saww) said: ‘They were absent (from the Masjid)?’ They said, ‘No, O Rasool-Allah (saww)!’ So he (saww) said: ‘But there is none from the Salat more difficult upon the hypocrites than this Salat (Al-Fajr) and Al-Isha Salat’. And in a report of Zarara, from Abu Ja’far (a.s.) having said: ‘The one who neglects the congregation on whim, from it, and from the congregations of the Muslims without a reason, so there is no Salat for him’. And in a report of Muhammad Bin Ali Al Halby, (It has been narrated) from Abu Abdullah (a.s.) having said: ‘The one keeps away from the congregation of Muslim by the measurement of a palm’s width, his faith would be pulled away from his neck’. And in a report of Abu Baseer, (It has been narrated) from Abu Abdullah (a.s.) having said: ‘The one who hears the call from the neighbourhood of the Masjid and does not answer, so there is no Salat for him’.
