Back to book

حَدَّثَنِی مُحَمَّدُ بْنُ مُوسَی بْنِ الْمُتَوَکِّلِ قَالَ حَدَّثَنِی عَلِیُّ بْنُ الْحُسَیْنِ السَّعْدَآبَادِیُّ عَنْ أَحْمَدَ بْنِ أَبِی عَبْدِ اللَّهِ الْبَرْقِیِّ قَالَ حَدَّثَنِی أَبُو عَبْدِ اللَّهِ الْجَامُورَانِیُّ عَنِ الْحَسَنِ بْنِ عَلِیِّ بْنِ حَمْزَهَ الْبَطَائِنِیِّ عَنْ مَنْدَلِ بْنِ عَلِیٍّ عَنْ أَبِی الصَّبَّاحِ الْکِنَانِیِّ عَنْ أَبِی جَعْفَرٍ ع قَالَ: إِنَّ اللَّهَ عَزَّ وَ جَلَّ یُحِبُّ مِنْ عِبَادِهِ الْمُؤْمِنِینَ کُلَّ دَعَّاءٍ فَعَلَیْکُمْ بِالدُّعَاءِ فِی السَّحَرِ إِلَی طُلُوعِ الشَّمْسِ فَإِنَّهَا سَاعَهٌ تُفْتَحُ فِیهَا أَبْوَابُ السَّمَاءِ وَ تَهُبُّ الرِّیَاحُ وَ تُقَسَّمُ فِیهَا الْأَرْزَاقُ وَ تُقْضَی فِیهَا الْحَوَائِجُ الْعِظَامُ.


1. It was narrated to me by Muhammad b. Musa b. al-Mutawakil who said it was narrated to me by Ali b. al-Hussain al-Sa’dabadi from Ahmad b. Abi Abdillah al-Barqi who said it was narrated to me by Abu Abdillah al-Jamurani from al-Hassan b. Ali b. Hamzah al-Bata’ini from Mandal b. Ali from Abi al-Sabah al-Kanani from Abi Ja’far (a.s.) who said: “Allah loves all the supplications of a believer. I advise you to supplicate between dawn and sunrise because the doors of heaven are opened, breeze of mercy blows, sustenance is distributed and greatest wishes are fulfilled during that time.”
