1. We were told by my father, may Allah grant him mercy, that he said: We were told by Ali bin Ibrahim bin Hashim, from his father, Hussain bin Yazid al-Nawfali, from Isma’eel bin Muslim, from Ja’far bin Muhammed, from his father, from his fathers, peace be upon them, that he said: The Messenger of Allah, Allah’s blessings be upon him and his Family, said: Worship is (consisting of) seventy parts, and the best part of it is to seeking that which is allowable.
