Back to book

أَبِی ره قَالَ حَدَّثَنِی سَعْدُ بْنُ عَبْدِ اللَّهِ عَنْ مُحَمَّدِ بْنِ الْحُسَیْنِ بْنِ أَبِی الْخَطَّابِ عَنْ وَهْبِ بْنِ حَفْصٍ عَنْ أَبِی بَصِیرٍ قَالَ سَمِعْتُ أَبَا عَبْدِ اللَّهِ ع یَقُولُ إِنَّ رَسُولَ اللَّهِ ص قَالَ: یَا أَیُّهَا النَّاسُ أَقِیمُوا صُفُوفَکُمْ وَ امْسَحُوا بِمَنَاکِبِکُمْ لِئَلَّا یَکُونَ فِیکُمْ خَلَلٌ وَ لَا تُخَالِفُوا فَیُخَالِفَ اللَّهُ بَیْنَ قُلُوبِکُمْ وَ إِنِّی أَرَاکُمْ مِنْ خَلْفِی.


1. Imam Ja’far Sadiq (a.s.) narrates that the Holy Prophet (s.a.w.s.) said, “O people! Make your rows proper. Your shoulders should touch that of the people standing beside you. There should be no gap between two persons. Don’t remain aloof from a row so that Allah does not create difference between you people. Know that I am seeing the people who create differences among you.”
