Back to book

حَدَّثَنِی مُحَمَّدُ بْنُ الْحَسَنِ قَالَ حَدَّثَنِی مُحَمَّدُ بْنُ الْحَسَنِ الصَّفَّارُ عَنْ أَحْمَدَ بْنِ مُحَمَّدٍ قَالَ: کُنْتُ أَنَا وَ إِبْرَاهِیمُ بْنُ هَاشِمٍ فِی بَعْضِ الْمَقَابِرِ إِذْ جَاءَ إِلَی قَبْرٍ فَجَلَسَ مُسْتَقْبِلَ الْقِبْلَهِ ثُمَّ وَضَعَ یَدَهُ عَلَی الْقَبْرِ فَقَرَأَ سَبْعَ مَرَّاتٍ إِنَّا أَنْزَلْنَاهُ ثُمَّ قَالَ حَدَّثَنِی صَاحِبُ الْقَبْرِ وَ هُوَ مُحَمَّدُ بْنُ إِسْمَاعِیلَ بْنِ بَزِیعٍ أَنَّهُ مَنْ زَارَ قَبْرَ مُؤْمِنٍ فَقَرَأَ عِنْدَهُ سَبْعَ مَرَّاتٍ إِنَّا أَنْزَلْنَاهُ غَفَرَ اللَّهُ لَهُ وَ لِصَاحِبِ الْقَبْرِ.


1. The narrator says that he went to a graveyard along with Ibrahim bin Hashim. Ibrahim sat at a grave facing the Qiblah, kept his hands on the grave and recited Surah Qadr seven times. He said, “It is the grave of Muhammad bin Ismail bin Bazee’, who had narrated a tradition that one who visits the grave of a believer and recites Surah Qadr seven times, Allah is responsible for the salvation of that person and the dead believer.”
