Back to book

أَبِی ره قَالَ حَدَّثَنَا سَعْدُ بْنُ عَبْدِ اللَّهِ عَنْ مُحَمَّدِ بْنِ عِیسَی عَنِ الْحُسَیْنِ بْنِ سُفْیَانَ عَنْ دَاوُدَ الرَّقِّیِّ قَالَ سَمِعْتُ أَبَا عَبْدِ اللَّهِ ع یَقُولُ لَإِفْطَارُکَ فِی مَنْزِلِ أَخِیکَ الْمُسْلِمِ أَفْضَلُ مِنْ صِیَامِکَ سَبْعِینَ ضِعْفاً أَوْ تِسْعِینَ ضِعْفاً.


1. It is narrated from Imam Ja’far Sadiq (a.s.), “The reward of doing Iftar at the house of a brother in faith is seventy or ninety times the reward of a fast.”




أَبِی ره قَالَ حَدَّثَنَا سَعْدُ بْنُ عَبْدِ اللَّهِ عَنْ مُحَمَّدِ بْنِ الْحُسَیْنِ عَنْ صَالِحِ بْنِ عُقْبَهَ عَنْ جَمِیلِ بْنِ دَرَّاجٍ قَالَ قَالَ أَبُو عَبْدِ اللَّهِ ع مَنْ دَخَلَ عَلَی أَخِیهِ وَ هُوَ صَائِمٌ فَأَفْطَرَ عِنْدَهُ وَ لَمْ یُعْلِمْهُ بِصَوْمِهِ فَیَمُنَّ عَلَیْهِ کَتَبَ اللَّهُ لَهُ صَوْمَ سَنَهٍ.


2. Imam Ja’far Sadiq (a.s.) says, “One who goes to a brother in faith fasting and does Iftar at his house and does not tell him about his fast Allah grants him the reward of fasting for a year.”
