1. It is narrated that Imam Muhammad Baqir (a.s.) said, “A person went to a mosque where the Holy Prophet (s.a.w.s.) was also present. He performed short prostrations without caring for what is obligatory in a prostration. The Holy Prophet (s.a.w.s.) said that the person was pecking like a crow. If that person dies, “he will die following any other religion except the religion of Muhammad.”
