Back to book

1ـ مُحَمَّدُ بْنُ يَحْيَى عَنْ مُحَمَّدِ بْنِ الْحُسَيْنِ عَنْ مُوسَى بْنِ طَلْحَةَ عَنْ أَبِي بَكْرِ بْنِ عِيسَى بْنِ أَحْمَدَ الْعَلَوِيِّ قَالَ كُنْتُ فِي الْمَسْجِدِ وَقَدْ جِي‏ءَ بِجَنَازَةٍ فَأَرَدْتُ أَنْ أُصَلِّيَ عَلَيْهَا فَجَاءَ أَبُو الْحَسَنِ الأوَّلُ (عَلَيْهِ الْسَّلام) فَوَضَعَ مِرْفَقَهُ فِي صَدْرِي فَجَعَلَ يَدْفَعُنِي حَتَّى خَرَجَ مِنَ الْمَسْجِدِ فَقَالَ يَا أَبَا بَكْرٍ إِنَّ الْجَنَائِزَ لاَ يُصَلَّى عَلَيْهَا فِي الْمَسَاجِدِ.


1. Muhammad ibn Yahya has narrated from Muhammad ibn al-Husayn from Musa ibn Talhah from abu Bakr ibn ‘Isa ibn Ahmad al-‘ Alaviy who has said the following: “Once I was in the Masjid when a dead body was brought in and I wanted to perform Salah (prayer) for the deceased. Abu al-Hassan, al-Awwal, ‘Alayhi al-Salam, came to me, placed his elbow against my chest and pushed me back all the way out of the Masjid and then said, ‘O abu Bakr, Salah (prayer) for deceased people is not performed in Masjid.”’
