Back to book

- عنه عن عثمان بن عيسى، عن سماعة بن مهران، قال: سئلت أبا عبد الله (ع) عن الصلوة تحضر وقد وضع الطعام؟ قال: إن كان في أول الوقت فليبدأ بالطعام، وإن كان قد مضى من الوقت شئ يخاف تأخيره فليبدأ بالصلوة.

1. From him, from Usman Bin Isa, from Sama’at Bin Mahran who said, ‘I asked Abu Abdullah (a.s.) about the Salat having presented itself and the food is (also) placed?’ The Imam (a.s.) said: ‘If it was in the first of the time (of Salat), so begin with the food, but if it was something past from the time (of Salat) (and) you fear losing it, then begin with the Salat’.
