حَدَّثَنَا مُحَمَّدُ بْنُ إِبْرَاهِیمَ قَالَ حَدَّثَنَا عُثْمَانُ بْنُ مُحَمَّدٍ وَ أَبُو یَعْقُوبَ الْقَزَّازُ قَالَ حَدَّثَنَا مُحَمَّدُ بْنُ یُوسُفَ إِمْلَاءً قَالَ حَدَّثَنَا مُحَمَّدُ بْنُ شَیْثٍ قَالَ حَدَّثَنَا عَاصِمُ بْنُ عَبْدِ اللَّهِ النَّخَعِیُّ عَنْ إِسْمَاعِیلَ بْنِ أَبِی [زِیَادٍ] عَنْ سُلَیْمَانَ التَّیْمِیِّ عَنْ أَبِی عُثْمَانَ النَّهْدِیِّ عَنْ سَلْمَانَ ره قَالَ قَالَ رَسُولُ اللَّهِ ص مَنْ صَلَّی أَرْبَعَ رَکَعَاتٍ یَوْمَ الْفِطْرِ بَعْدَ صَلَاهِ الْإِمَامِ یَقْرَأُ فِی أَوَّلِهِنَ سَبِّحِ اسْمَ رَبِّکَ الْأَعْلَی فَکَأَنَّمَا قَرَأَ جَمِیعَ الْکُتُبِ کُلَّ کِتَابٍ أَنْزَلَهُ اللَّهُ عَزَّ وَ جَلَّ وَ فِی الرَّکْعَهِ الثَّانِیَهِ وَ الشَّمْسِ وَ ضُحاها فَلَهُ مِنَ الثَّوَابِ مَا طَلَعَتْ عَلَیْهِ الشَّمْسُ وَ فِی الثَّالِثَهِ وَ الضُّحی فَلَهُ مِنَ الثَّوَابِ کَأَنَّمَا أَشْبَعَ جَمِیعَ الْمَسَاکِینِ وَ دَهَّنَهُمْ وَ نَظَّفَهُمْ وَ فِی الرَّابِعَهِ قُلْ هُوَ اللَّهُ أَحَدٌ ثَلَاثِینَ مَرَّهً غَفَرَ اللَّهُ لَهُ ذَنْبَ خَمْسِینَ سَنَهً مُسْتَقْبِلَهً وَ خَمْسِینَ سَنَهً مُسْتَدْبِرَهً.


1. The Holy Prophet (s.a.w.s.) says, “One who offers a four rakat Salaat after Eid congregational prayer reciting Surah Aa’la in the first rakat it would be as if he has recited all the books revealed by Allah. If he recites Surah Shams in the second rakat he would get the reward equal to the number of things on which the rays of sun fall. If he recites Surah Zuha in the third rakat he would get the reward of feeding all the poor, cleaning and scenting them. If he recites Surah Tauheed ten times in the fourth rakat Allah would forgive the sins committed by him during past and future fifty years. Abu Ja’far Muhammad bin Ali, the writer of the book says that this reward is for the person who remained in Taqayyah and offered Salaat behind the Imam of other sect; then he should offer the above-mentioned Salaat with the intention of Eid prayer. One who prays behind an Imam appointed by Allah whose obedience is compulsory cannot offer any Salaat till noon. If one offers Salaat behind an Imam of one’s own sect (whose obedience is not compulsory) then too there is no need to offer any Salaat till noon.
