96. Reward of offering Salaat in congregation

Back to book

حَدَّثَنِی أَبِی ره بِإِسْنَادٍ عَنْ عَبْدِ اللَّهِ بْنِ سِنَانٍ قَالَ قَالَ أَبُو عَبْدِ اللَّهِ ع إِنَّ الصَّلَاهَ فِی الْجَمَاعَهِ تَفْضُلُ عَلَی صَلَاهِ الْفَرْدِ ثلاث [بِثَلَاثٍ] وَ عِشْرِینَ دَرَجَهً تَکُونُ خَمْساً وَ عِشْرِینَ صَلَاهً.


1. Imam Ja’far Sadiq (a.s.) says, “The excellence of congregational prayers is twenty three times that of prayer offered alone and this one congregational prayer is equal to twenty five prayers.”




حَدَّثَنِی أَبِی ره قَالَ حَدَّثَنِی عَلِیُّ بْنُ إِبْرَاهِیمَ عَنْ أَبِیهِ عَنِ النَّوْفَلِیِّ عَنِ السَّکُونِیِّ عَنْ أَبِی عَبْدِ اللَّهِ عَنْ آبَائِهِ ع قَالَ قَالَ رَسُولُ اللَّهِ ص مَنْ أَتَی الْجَمَاعَهَ إِیمَاناً وَ احْتِسَاباً اسْتَأْنَفَ الْعَمَلَ.


2. Imam Ja’far Sadiq (a.s.) narrates from his predecessors that the Holy Prophet (s.a.w.s.) said, “For one who offers Salaat in congregation with faith and for seeking divine rewards, a new record of his deeds would be created (blotting out all sins he has committed before).”




حَدَّثَنِی مُحَمَّدُ بْنُ الْحَسَنِ بِإِسْنَادِهِ عَنْ مُعَلَّی بْنِ خُنَیْسٍ قَالَ حَدَّثَنِی مُحَمَّدُ بْنُ یَحْیَی الْعَطَّارُ عَنْ مُحَمَّدِ بْنِ أَحْمَدَ عَنْ إِبْرَاهِیمَ بْنِ إِسْحَاقَ عَنْ عَبْدِ اللَّهِ بْنِ حَمَّادٍ الْأَنْصَارِیِّ عَنِ الْمُعَلَّی بْنِ خُنَیْسٍ قَالَ سَمِعْتُ أَبَا عَبْدِ اللَّهِ ع یَقُولُ مَنْ وَافَقَ مِنْکُمْ یَوْمَ الْجُمُعَهِ فَلَا یَشْتَغِلَنَّ بِشَیْ ءٍ غَیْرِ الْعِبَادَهِ فَإِنَّ فِیهَا تُغْفَرُ للعباده [لِلْعِبَادِ] وَ تَنْزِلُ الرَّحْمَهُ.


3. The narrator heard Imam Ja’far Sadiq (a.s.) say, “One who gets a Friday, should not get involved in anything except worship because people are forgiven and mercy is showered on this day.”
