Back to book

أَبِی ره قَالَ حَدَّثَنِی سَعْدُ بْنُ عَبْدِ اللَّهِ عَنْ أَبِیهِ عَنْ عَلِیِّ بْنِ أَسْبَاطٍ عَنْ إِبْرَاهِیمَ بْنِ أَبِی الْبِلَادِ قَالَ: قُلْتُ لِأَبِی الْحَسَنِ ع أَیُّ شَیْ ءٍ لِمَنْ صَلَّی صَلَاهَ جَعْفَرٍ قَالَ لَوْ کَانَ عَلَیْهِ مِثْلُ رَمْلِ عَالِجٍ وَ زَبَدِ الْبَحْرِ ذُنُوباً لَغَفَرَهَا اللَّهُ لَهُ قُلْتُ هَذِهِ لَنَا قَالَ فَلِمَنْ هِیَ إِلَّا لَکُمْ خَاصَّهً قَالَ قُلْتُ فَأَیَّ شَیْ ءٍ یَقْرَأُ فِیهَا مِنْ عَرْضِ الْقُرْآنِ قَالَ لَا اقْرَأْ فِیهَا إِذا زُلْزِلَتِ وَ إِذا جاءَ نَصْرُ اللَّهِ وَ إِنَّا أَنْزَلْناهُ فِی لَیْلَهِ الْقَدْرِ وَ قُلْ هُوَ اللَّهُ أَحَدٌ.


1. The narrator asked Imam Musa Kazim (a.s.), “What is the reward of offering Salaat-e-Ja’far-e-Tayyar?” Imam (a.s.) replied, “Allah would forgive that person even if his sins are equal to the number of grains of sand or number of waves in the oceans.” The narrator asked, “Is this reward applicable for us?” Imam (a.s.) replied, “Of course, then for whom else? It is for you only.” The narrator asked, “Which Surah should be recited in this Salaat?” Imam (a.s.) replied, “Recite Idhaa zulzilat, idhaa jaa-a nas’rullaah, innaa anzalnaahu fee lailatil qadr and qul huwallaahu ah’ad.”
