Back to book

حَدَّثَنِی أَحْمَدُ بْنُ مُحَمَّدٍ عَنْ أَبِیهِ عَنْ مُحَمَّدِ بْنِ أَحْمَدَ عَنْ مُحَمَّدِ بْنِ الْحُسَیْنِ عَنْ مُحَمَّدِ بْنِ عُمَرَ السَّرَّادِ عَمَّنْ أَخْبَرَهُ عَنْ أَبِی عَبْدِ اللَّهِ ع قَالَ: مَنْ قَطَعَ ثَوْباً جَدِیداً وَ قَرَأَ إِنَّا أَنْزَلْناهُ فِی لَیْلَهِ الْقَدْرِ سِتّاً وَ ثَلَاثِینَ مَرَّهً فَإِذَا بَلَغَ تَنَزَّلُ الْمَلائِکَهُ أَخْرَجَ شَیْئاً مِنَ الْمَاءِ وَ رَشَّ عَلَی الثَّوْبِ رَشّاً خَفِیفاً ثُمَّ صَلَّی رَکْعَتَیْنِ وَ دَعَا رَبَّهُ وَ قَالَ فِی دُعَائِهِ الْحَمْدُ لِلَّهِ الَّذِی رَزَقَنِی مَا أَتَجَمَّلُ بِهِ فِی النَّاسِ وَ أُوَارِی بِهِ عَوْرَتِی وَ أُصَلِّی فِیهِ لِرَبِّی وَ حَمِدَ اللَّهَ لَمْ یَزَلْ یَأْکُلُ فِی سَعَهٍ حَتَّی یَبْلَی ذَلِکَ الثَّوْبُ.


1. It was narrated to me by Ahmad b. Muhammad from his father from Muhammad b. Ahmad from Muhammad b. al-Hussain from Muhammad b. Umar al-Sarad from the one that narrated to him from Abi Abdillah (a.s.) who said: “A person should recite Surah Qadr thirty-six times while cutting a new cloth. When he reaches Tanazzalul malaa-ikatu, he should sprinkle a little water on the cloth. He should then offer a two rakat Salaat and recite this supplication Alh’amdulillaahilladhee razaqanee maa atajammalu bihi finnaasi wa uwaaree bihi a’uratee wa us’allee feehi lirabbee wa ah’madullaah. Before this cloth gets old, there would be abundance in livelihood.”
