1ـ عِدَّةٌ مِنْ أَصْحَابِنَا عَنْ أَحْمَدَ بْنِ مُحَمَّدٍ عَنْ عَلِيِّ بْنِ الْحَكَمِ عَنِ الْفُضَيْلِ بْنِ عُثْمَانَ عَنْ لَيْثِ بْنِ أَبِي سُلَيْمٍ رَفَعَهُ قَالَ قَالَ النَّبِيُّ (صَلَّى اللهُ عَلَيْهِ وآلِه) نَوِّرُوا بُيُوتَكُمْ بِتِلاوَةِ الْقُرْآنِ وَلا تَتَّخِذُوهَا قُبُوراً كَمَا فَعَلَتِ الْيَهُودُ وَالنَّصَارَى صَلَّوْا فِي الْكَنَائِسِ وَالْبِيَعِ وَعَطَّلُوا بُيُوتَهُمْ فَإِنَّ الْبَيْتَ إِذَا كَثُرَ فِيهِ تِلاوَةُ الْقُرْآنِ كَثُرَ خَيْرُهُ وَاتَّسَعَ أَهْلُهُ وَأَضَاءَ لأهْلِ السَّمَاءِ كَمَا تُضِي‏ءُ نُجُومُ السَّمَاءِ لأهْلِ الدُّنْيَا.


1. A number of our people have narrated from Ahmad ibn Muhammad from Ali ibn al-Hakam from al-Fudayl ibn ‘Uthman from Layth ibn abu Sulaym in a marfu’ manner from the Holy Prophet who has said the following: “Light up your homes by means of reading the Holy Quran and do not turn them into graves as the Jews and Christians had done. They pray in churches and synagogues and leave their homes of no use. If reading of the Holy Quran is more often in a house, goodness increases therein, its inhabitants receive expanded sustenance and it will shine to the inhabitants of the heaven just as stars shine for the people of this world (earth).’”
