Maʿānī al-ʾAkhbār > The meaning of the two obligating things
Hadith #1

أبي - رحمه الله - قال: حدثنا سعد بن عبد الله، عن يعقوب بن يزيد، عن حماد، عن حريز، عن زرارة، قال: قال أبو جعفر عليه السلام: لا تنسوا الموجبتين - أو قال: عليكم بالموجبتين - في دبر كل صلاة. قلت: وما الموجبتان؟ قال: تسأل الله الجنة وتتعوذ به من النار.

1. My father, may Allah grant him mercy, said: We were told by Sa’d bin Abdullah, from Ya’qoub bin Yazid, from Hammad, from Hurayz, from Zurara, that he said: Abu Ja’far, peace be upon him, said: Do not forget the two obligating things - or he said: «(Imposed) Upon you are the two obligating things» - at the end of every prayer. I said: And what are the two obligating things? He said: That you ask Allah for Paradise and seek refuge in Him from the Fire.
