Back to book

أَبِی ره قَالَ حَدَّثَنِی سَعْدُ بْنُ عَبْدِ اللَّهِ قَالَ حَدَّثَنِی سَلَمَهُ بْنُ الْخَطَّابِ عَنْ إِسْمَاعِیلَ بْنِ جَعْفَرٍ عَنِ الْحُسَیْنِ بْنِ عَلِیٍّ عَنْ أَبِیهِ عَنْ أَبِی بَصِیرٍ عَنْ أَبِی عَبْدِ اللَّهِ ع قَالَ: إِذَا ذُکِرَ النَّبِیُّ ص فَأَکْثِرُوا الصَّلَاهَ عَلَیْهِ فَإِنَّهُ مَنْ صَلَّی عَلَی النَّبِیِّ ص صَلَاهً وَاحِدَهً صَلَّی اللَّهُ عَلَیْهِ أَلْفَ صَلَاهٍ فِی أَلْفِ صَفٍّ مِنَ الْمَلَائِکَهِ وَ لَمْ یَبْقَ شَیْ ءٌ مِمَّا خَلَقَ اللَّهُ إِلَّا صَلَّی عَلَی ذَلِکَ الْعَبْدِ لِصَلَاهِ اللَّهِ عَلَیْهِ وَ صَلَاهِ مَلَائِکَتِهِ وَ لَا یَرْغَبُ عَنْ هَذَا إِلَّا جَاهِلٌ مَغْرُورٌ وَ قَدْ بَرِئَ اللَّهُ مِنْهُ وَ رَسُولُهُ.


1. My father (rah) said: it was narrated to me by Sa’d b. Abdillah who said it was narrated to me by Salamah b. al-Khattab from Ismail b. Ja’far from al-Hussain b. Ali from his father from Abi Basir from Abi Abdillah (a.s.) who said: “Whenever the Holy Prophet (s.a.w.s.) is mentioned, send salutations on him excessively. One who sends salutation on the Holy Prophet (s.a.w.s.) once, the Almighty Allah will order one thousand rows having a thousand angels each to send salutation on that person. Everything in this universe will send salutations on him because of the salutations of Allah and the angels. Allah and His Messenger (s.a.w.s.) are wary of ignorant and proud people. Hence no one hesitates reciting salutation on the Holy Prophet (s.a.w.s.) except an ignorant and a proud man.”
