Back to book

- عنه، عن أبيه، عن محمد بن أبى عمير، عن مرازم، قال: رأيت أبا الحسن إذا توضأ قبل الطعام لم يمس المنديل، وإذا توضأ بعد الطعام مس المنديل.


1. From him, from his father, from Muhammad Bin Abu Umeyr, from Marazam who said, ‘I saw Abu Al-Hassan (a.s.), when he (a.s.) performed ablution before the food, (the Imam (a.s.)) did not wipe with the hand towel, but when he (a.s.) performed ablution after the food, (the Imam (a.s.)) wiped with the hand towel’.




عنه، عن ابن فضال، عن أبى المغرا حميد بن المثنى العجلى، عن زيد الشحام، عن أبى عبد الله (ع) أنه كره أن يمسح الرجل يده بالمنديل وفيها شئ من الطعام تعظيما للطعام حتى يمصها، أو يكون إلى جانبه صبى فيمصها.


2. From him, from Ibn Fazaal, from Abu Al Magra Hameed Bin Al Masny Al Ajaly, from Zayd Al Shaham, (Imam) Abu Abdullah (a.s.) (said that) he (a.s.) dislike the man who wiped his hand with the hand towel and in it (his hand) was something from the food, in reverence for the food until he licks it, or there happens to be a boy by his side, so he licks it’.




عنه، عن أبيه، عن على بن النعمان، عن منصور بن حازم، قال: سألت أبا عبد الله (ع) عن الرجل يمسح وجهه بالمنديل؟ - قال: لا بأس به.


3. From him, from his father, from Ali Bin Al No’man, from Mansour Bin Hazam who said, ‘I asked Abu Abdullah (a.s.) about the man who wiped his face with the hand towel?’ He (a.s.) said: ‘There is no problem in it’.




عنه، عن أبيه، عمن ذكره، عن عبد الله بن سنان، قال: سألت أبا عبد الله (ع) عن التمندل عبد الوضوء؟ - فقال. كان لعلى (ع) خرقة في المسجد ليس إلا للوجه يتمندل بها.


4. From him, from his father, from the one who mentioned it, from Abdullah Bin Sinan who said, ‘I asked Abu Abdullah (a.s.) about the wiping cloth for the ablution?’ So he (a.s.) said: ‘There was for Ali (a.s.), a rag in the Masjid, it was not for (anything else) except for his (a.s.) faced to be wiped by it’.




وباسناده قال: كانت لعلى (ع)، خرقة يعلقها في مسجد بيته لوجهه، إذا توضأ يتمندل بها.


5. And by his chain, the Imam (a.s.) said: ‘There was for Ali (a.s.), a rag hung in the Masjid to be utilised for his (a.s.) face. Whenever he (a.s.) performed ablution, he (a.s.) used to wipe with it’.




عنه، عن الوشاء، عن محمد بن سنان، عن أبى عبد الله (ع) قال: كان لامير المؤمنين (ع) خرقة، يمسح بها وجهه إذا توضأ للصلوة، يعلقها على وتد ولا – يمسها غيره.


6. From him, from Al Washa, from Muhammad Bin Sinan, (It has been narrated) from Abu Abdullah (a.s.) having said: ‘There used to be a rag for Amir Al-Momineen (a.s.). He (a.s.) wiped his face with it whenever he (a.s.) performed ablution for the Prayer. It was hung upon a wedge, and no one else wiped with it’.




عنه، عن إبراهيم بن محمد الثقفى، عن على بن المعلى البغدادي، عن إبراهيم بن محمد بن حمران، عن أبيه، عن أبى عبد الله (ع) قال: من توضأ فتمندل كانت له حسنة، ومن توضأ ولم يتمندل حتى يجف وضوءه كانت له ثلاثون حسنة.


7. From him, from Ibrahim Bin Muhammad Al Saqafy, from Ali Bin Al Moala Al Baghdady, from Ibrahim Bin Muhammad Bin Hamran, from his father, (It has been narrated) from Abu Abdullah (a.s.) having said: ‘The one who performs ablution, so the wiping for him is one Reward; and the one who performs ablution and does not wipe until his ablution dries up, there would be for him, thirty Rewards’.




عنه، عن الفضل بن المبارك، عن الفضل بن يونس قال: لما تغدى عندي أبو الحسن (ع) أتى بمنديل ليطرح على ثوبه، فأبى أن يلقيه على ثوبه.


8. From him, from Al Fazal Bin Al Mubarak, from Al Fazal Bin Yunus who said, ‘When Abu Al-Hassan (a.s.) had dinner with me, I gave him a hand towel to be placed upon his (a.s.) clothes (as a napkin), but the Imam (a.s.) refused to hang it upon his (a.s.) clothes’.




عنه، عن أبيه، عن محمد بن سنان، عن العلاء بن الفضيل، عن أبى - عبد الله (ع) قال: إذا توضأ أحدكم ولم يسم كان للشيطان في وضوءه شرك وإن أكل أو شرب أو لبس وكل شئ صنعه ينبغى له أن يسمى عليه، فان لم يفعل كان للشيطان فيه شرك.


9. From him, from his father, from Muhammad Bin Sinan, from Al A’ala Bin Al Fazeyl, Abu Abdullah (a.s.) has said: ‘When one of you performs ablution and does not Name (recite Bismillah), there would be an association of the Satan (la) in his ablution. But if he were to eat, or drink, or wear, and everything he does, it is befitting that he Names (recites Bismillah) over it, for if he were not to do it, there would be for the Satan (la), an association in it’.




عنه، عن أبى عبد الله البرقى، عن فضالة بن أيوب، عن داود بن فرقد، رفعه إلى أمير المؤمنين (ع) أنه قال: ضمنت لمن سمى الله تعالى على طعام أن لا يشتكى منه، فقال ابن الكوا: يا أمير المؤمنين (ع)، لقد أكلت البارحة طعاما فسميت عليه فأذاني، فقال أمير المؤمنين (ع): أكلت ألوانا فسميت على بعضها ولم تسم على كل لون يالكع.


10. From him, from Abu Abdullah Al Barqy, from Fazalat Bin Ayoub, from Fawood Bin Farqad, Amir Al-Momineen (a.s.) having said: ‘I (a.s.) guarantee to the one who Names Allah (azwj) the High upon food that he would not complain from it’. So Ibn Al-Kawa said, ‘O Amir Al-Momineen (a.s.)! I had eaten food yesterday, so I Named (Allah (azwj)) over it, but it harmed me’. So Amir Al-Momineen (a.s.) said: ‘You ate a variety, so you Named upon one of it and did not Name over every type (of food) you ate, senseless (attitude towards eating)’.




عنه، عن أبيه، عن حماد بن عيسى، عن مسمع أبى سيار قال: قلت لابي " عبد الله (ع)، إنى أتخم، قال: سم، قلت: قد سميت، قال: فلعلك تأكل ألوان الطعام؟ - قلت: نعم، قال: فتسمى على كل لون؟ - قلت: لا، فقال: من ههنا تتخم.


11. From him, from his father, from Hamaad Bin Isa, from Masma Abu Sayaar who said, ‘I said Abu Abdullah (a.s.), ‘I overate’. The Imam (a.s.) said: ‘Name (Bismillah)’. I said, ‘I had Named’. He (a.s.) said: ‘So, perhaps you ate a variety of the foods’. I said, ‘Yes’. The Imam (a.s.) said: ‘So you Named over every type?’ I said, ‘No’. So he (a.s.) said: ‘(It is) from here that you overate’.
