حَدَّثَنِی مُحَمَّدُ بْنُ الْحَسَنِ قَالَ حَدَّثَنِی مُحَمَّدُ بْنُ الْحَسَنِ الصَّفَّارُ عَنْ أَحْمَدَ بْنِ أَبِی عَبْدِ اللَّهِ الْبَرْقِیِّ قَالَ حَدَّثَنَا أَبِی عَنْ مُحَمَّدِ بْنِ أَبِی عُمَیْرٍ عَنْ مُرَازِمٍ قَالَ قَالَ أَبُو عَبْدِ اللَّهِ ع قَالَ: إِنَّ رَجُلًا أَتَی النَّبِیَّ ص فَقَالَ یَا رَسُولَ اللَّهِ ص إِنِّی جَعَلْتُ ثُلُثَ صَلَاتِی لَکَ فَقَالَ لَهُ خَیْراً فَقَالَ یَا رَسُولَ اللَّهِ ص إِنِّی جَعَلْتُ نِصْفَ صَلَاتِی لَکَ فَقَالَ ذَلِکَ أَفْضَلُ قَالَ قَدْ جَعَلْتُ کُلَّ صَلَاتِی لَکَ قَالَ إِذاً یَکْفِیَکَ اللَّهُ مَا أَهَمَّکَ مِنْ أَمْرِ دُنْیَاکَ وَ آخِرَتِکَ فَقَالَ لَهُ رَجُلٌ أَصْلَحَکَ اللَّهُ کَیْفَ یَجْعَلُ صَلَاتَهُ لَهُ قَالَ أَبُو عَبْدِ اللَّهِ ع لَا یَسْأَلُ اللَّهَ شَیْئاً إِلَّا بَدَأَ بِالصَّلَاهِ عَلَی مُحَمَّدٍ وَ آلِ مُحَمَّدٍ.


1. Imam Ja’far Sadiq (a.s.) narrates that a person came to the Messenger of Allah (s.a.w.s.) and said, “I have dedicated my one-third prayer for you.” The Holy Prophet (s.a.w.s.) said, “Goodness be for you.” The man said, “I have dedicated half of my prayer for you.” He replied, “You did a really good thing.” The man told him, “I have dedicated my whole prayer for you.” He replied, “Allah will fulfill all your desires of this world and the hereafter.” At that time, a person asked Imam Ja’far Sadiq (a.s.), “May Allah do good to you, how can a person dedicate his supplication to the Holy Prophet (s.a.w.s.)?” Imam Ja’far Sadiq (a.s.) said, “Send salutation of Muhammad (s.a.w.s.) and his progeny before asking for anything from Allah.”
