Back to book

أَبِی ره قَالَ حَدَّثَنِی عَلِیُّ بْنُ إِبْرَاهِیمَ عَنْ أَبِیهِ عَنِ النَّوْفَلِیِّ عَنِ السَّکُونِیِّ عَنْ جَعْفَرِ بْنِ مُحَمَّدٍ عَنْ أَبِیهِ عَنْ آبَائِهِ ع قَالَ قَالَ رَسُولُ اللَّهِ ص مَنْ بَنَی مَسْکَناً فَذَبَحَ کَبْشاً سَمِیناً وَ أَطْعَمَ لَحْمَهُ الْمَسَاکِینَ ثُمَّ قَالَ اللَّهُمَّ ادْحَرْ عَنِّی مَرَدَهَ الْجِنِّ وَ الْإِنْسِ وَ الشَّیَاطِینِ وَ بَارِکْ لِی فِی بِنَائِی أُعْطِیَ مَا سَأَلَ.


1. Imam Ja’far Sadiq (a.s.) narrates from his predecessors that the Holy Prophet (s.a.w.s.) said, “One who builds a new house, slaughters a healthy animal, distributes its meat among the poor and recites the following supplication: Allaahummad h’ar a’nnee maradatal jinni wash shayaat’eeni wa baarik lee fee binaaee will get whatever he wishes.”
