Maʿānī al-ʾAkhbār > The meaning of the hour of unawareness
Hadith #1

حدثنا أبي - رحمه الله - قال: حدثنا سعد بن عبد الله، عن أحمد بن محمد بن خالد، عن سليمان بن سماعة، عن عمه عاصم الكوزي ، عن أبي عبد الله، عن أبيه عليهما السلام قال: قال النبي صلى الله عليه وآله: تنفلوا في ساعة الغفلة ولو بركعتين خفيفتين فإنهما تورثان دار الكرامة. قيل: يا رسول الله ومتى ساعة الغفلة؟ قال: ما بين المغرب والعشاء.

1. We were told by my father, may Allah grant him mercy, that he said: We were told by Sa’d bin Abdullah, from Ahmad bin Muhammed bin Khalid, from Sulayman bin Sama’a, from his paternal uncle, ‘Asim al-Kuzi, from Abu Abdillah, from his father, peace be upon them both, that he said: The Prophet, Allah’s blessings be upon him and his Family, said: Perform additional prayers during the hour of unawareness, even if by two light rak’as, for indeed, they are a cause of (acquiring) the Home of Dignity. It was said: O Messenger of Allah, and when is the hour of unawareness? He said: Between the (prayers of the) sundown and the evening.
