Back to book

أَبِی ره قَالَ حَدَّثَنِی سَعْدُ بْنُ عَبْدِ اللَّهِ عَنْ مُحَمَّدِ بْنِ الْحُسَیْنِ بْنِ أَبِی الْخَطَّابِ عَنِ الْحَکَمِ بْنِ مِسْکِینٍ عَنْ حُصَیْنِ بْنِ عَبْدِ اللَّهِ عَنْ أَبِی عَبْدِ اللَّهِ ع قَالَ سَمِعْتُهُ یَقُولُ إِذَا قَامَ الْعَبْدُ إِلَی الصَّلَاهِ أَقْبَلَ اللَّهُ عَزَّ وَ جَلَّ عَلَیْهِ بِوَجْهِهِ فَلَا یَزَالُ مُقْبِلًا عَلَیْهِ حَتَّی یَلْتَفِتَ ثَلَاثَ مَرَّاتٍ فَإِذَا الْتَفَتَ ثَلَاثَ مَرَّاتٍ أَعْرَضَ عَنْهُ.


1. It is narrated that Imam Ja’far Sadiq (a.s.) said, “Whenever a servant stands up for Salaat, the Almighty Allah turns His attention towards him and continues to do so. However one who turns away his attention thrice, Allah turns away from him permanently.”
