1ـ عَلِيُّ بْنُ إِبْرَاهِيمَ عَنْ أَبِيهِ عَنِ ابْنِ أَبِي عُمَيْرٍ عَنْ يَحْيَى الْحَلَبِيِّ عَنْ هَارُونَ بْنِ خَارِجَةَ عَنْ أَبِي بَصِيرٍ عَنْ أَبِي عَبْدِ الله (عَلَيْهِ الْسَّلام) قَالَ قَالَ رَسُولُ الله (صلّى اللهُ عَلَيْهِ وَآلِه) لِجَعْفَرٍ يَا جَعْفَرُ أَ لاَ أَمْنَحُكَ أَ لاَ أُعْطِيكَ أَ لاَ أَحْبُوكَ فَقَالَ لَهُ جَعْفَرٌ بَلَى يَا رَسُولَ الله قَالَ فَظَنَّ النَّاسُ أَنَّهُ يُعْطِيهِ ذَهَباً أَوْ فِضَّةً فَتَشَرَّفَ النَّاسُ لِذَلِكَ فَقَالَ لَهُ إِنِّي أُعْطِيكَ شَيْئاً إِنْ أَنْتَ صَنَعْتَهُ فِي كُلِّ يَوْمٍ كَانَ خَيْراً لَكَ مِنَ الدُّنْيَا وَمَا فِيهَا وَإِنْ صَنَعْتَهُ بَيْنَ يَوْمَيْنِ غُفِرَ لَكَ مَا بَيْنَهُمَا أَوْ كُلَّ جُمْعَةٍ أَوْ كُلَّ شَهْرٍ أَوْ كُلَّ سَنَةٍ غُفِرَ لَكَ مَا بَيْنَهُمَا تُصَلِّي أَرْبَعَ رَكَعَاتٍ تَبْتَدِئُ فَتَقْرَأُ وَتَقُولُ إِذَا فَرَغْتَ سُبْحَانَ الله وَالْحَمْدُ لله وَلاَ إِلَهَ إِلاَّ الله وَالله أَكْبَرُ تَقُولُ ذَلِكَ خَمْسَ عَشْرَةَ مَرَّةً بَعْدَ الْقِرَاءَةِ فَإِذَا رَكَعْتَ قُلْتَهُ عَشْرَ مَرَّاتٍ فَإِذَا رَفَعْتَ رَأْسَكَ مِنَ الرُّكُوعِ قُلْتَهُ عَشْرَ مَرَّاتٍ فَإِذَا سَجَدْتَ قُلْتَهُ عَشْرَ مَرَّاتٍ فَإِذَا رَفَعْتَ رَأْسَكَ مِنَ السُّجُودِ فَقُلْ بَيْنَ السَّجْدَتَيْنِ عَشْرَ مَرَّاتٍ فَإِذَا سَجَدْتَ الثَّانِيَةَ فَقُلْ عَشْرَ مَرَّاتٍ فَإِذَا رَفَعْتَ رَأْسَكَ مِنَ السَّجْدَةِ الثَّانِيَةِ قُلْتَ عَشْرَ مَرَّاتٍ وَأَنْتَ قَاعِدٌ قَبْلَ أَنْ تَقُومَ فَذَلِكَ خَمْسٌ وَسَبْعُونَ تَسْبِيحَةً فِي كُلِّ رَكْعَةٍ ثَلاَثُمِائَةِ تَسْبِيحَةٍ فِي أَرْبَعِ رَكَعَاتٍ أَلْفٌ وَمِائَتَا تَسْبِيحَةٍ وَتَهْلِيلَةٍ وَتَكْبِيرَةٍ وَتَحْمِيدَةٍ إِنْ شِئْتَ صَلَّيْتَهَا بِالنَّهَارِ وَإِنْ شِئْتَ صَلَّيْتَهَا بِاللَّيْلِ. وَفِي رِوَايَةِ إِبْرَاهِيمَ بْنِ عَبْدِ الْحَمِيدِ عَنْ أَبِي الْحَسَنِ (عَلَيْهِ الْسَّلام) تَقْرَأُ فِي الأولَى إِذَا زُلْزِلَتْ وَفِي الثَّانِيَةِ وَالْعَادِيَاتِ وَفِي الثَّالِثَةِ إِذَا جَاءَ نَصْرُ الله وَفِي الرَّابِعَةِ بِقُلْ هُوَ الله أَحَدٌ قُلْتُ فَمَا ثَوَابُهَا قَالَ لَوْ كَانَ عَلَيْهِ مِثْلُ رَمْلِ عَالِجٍ ذُنُوباً غَفَرَ الله لَهُ ثُمَّ نَظَرَ إِلَيَّ فَقَالَ إِنَّمَا ذَلِكَ لَكَ وَلأَصْحَابِكَ.


1. Ali ibn Ibrahim has narrated from his father from ibn abu ‘Umayr from Yahya al-Halabiy from Harun ibn Kharijah from abu Basir who has said the following: “Abu ‘Abd Allah, ‘Alayhi al-Salam, has said that the Messenger of Allah once said to Ja‘far: ‘O Ja‘far, should I grant you and give an award to you or a gift?’ Ja‘far then said, ‘Yes, O Messenger of Allah, please do so.’ The narrator has said that people thought the Messenger of Allah might give him gold or silver. People remained anticipating. The Messenger of Allah said, ‘I give you something and if you practice every day, it will be better for you than the whole world and all that it contains. If you practice it every two days, Allah forgives you during the time in between. For your practicing it every Friday or every month or every year, Allah grants you forgiveness during the time in between. Perform four Rak‘at Salah (prayer). Begin the Salah (prayer), complete the recitations and then say, “Allah is free of all defects, all praise belongs to Allah, no one, other than Allah, deserves worship and Allah is great” fifteen times. In Ruku‘ position, say it ten times. After Ruku‘ (bowing down on one’s knees)’, when standing, say it ten times. In the first sajdah say it ten times. When sitting between the two sajdah say it ten times. In the second sajdah say it ten times. After the second sajdah before standing up for the second Rak‘at say it ten times. This amounts to seventy-five Tasbihah, which makes it three hundred Tasbihah in one Rak‘at and in four Rak‘at Salah (prayer) it becomes one thousand two hundred Tasbihah, Tahlilah, Tahmidah and Takbirah. You may perform this Salah (prayer) during the day or night as you wish.’ “It is in a Hadith (narration) from Ibrahim ibn ‘Abd al-Hamid that abu al-Hassan, ‘Alayhi al-Salam, has said the following. ‘In the first Rak‘at after the first Chapter of the Holy Quran recite Chapter 99. In the second Rak‘at you should recite Chapter 100, in the third Rak‘at recite Chapter 110 and in the fourth Rak‘at read Chapter 112 of the Holy Quran.’ I then asked, ‘What is the reward for this Salah (prayer)?’ The Imam replied, ‘If his sins are as many as grains of sand in a pile, Allah forgives him.’ He then looked at me and said, ‘This is for you and your people only.’”

5. Ali ibn Muhammad has narrated from certain individuals of our people from ibn Mahbub in a marfu‘ manner that the Imam said: “In the last Rak‘at (sajdah of last Rak‘at), in Salah (prayer) of Ja’far, you should say this. ‘O the One, Who has dressed up in majesty and dignity, who is kind with glory and is gracious with glory, You are the One, besides whom no one deserves Tasbih (glorification). (You are) the One whose knowledge has encompassed all things, the bountiful and generous, the One who does favors with additional generosity and the powerful and gracious. I appeal to You through the majestic qualities of Your Throne and the limits of mercy from Your book and through Your great, the most High name and perfect words. Allahumma Salli ‘Ala Muhammad wa ‘Ali Muhammad (O Allah grant Muhammad and his family a compensation worthy of their serving Your cause). Please make my such and such wishes come true.’”
