13. The Prayer of the Recipient of Charity

Back to book

1ـ عِدَّةٌ مِنْ أَصْحَابِنَا عَنْ أَحْمَدَ بْنِ أَبِي عَبْدِ الله عَنْ يَعْقُوبَ بْنِ يَزِيدَ وَغَيْرِهِ عَنْ زِيَادٍ الْقَنْدِيِّ عَمَّنْ ذَكَرَهُ قَالَ إِذَا أَعْطَيْتُمُوهُمْ فَلَقِّنُوهُمُ الدُّعَاءَ فَإِنَّهُ يُسْتَجَابُ الدُّعَاءُ لَهُمْ فِيكُمْ وَلا يُسْتَجَابُ لَهُمْ فِي أَنْفُسِهِمْ.


1. A number of our people have narrated from Ahmad ibn abu ‘Abd Allah from Ya’qub ibn Yazid and other people from Ziyad al- Qandiy from those whom he has mentioned who have said the following: “He (the Imam) has said, ‘When you give charity, ask them to pray; their prayer for you is answered, but it is not heard for themselves.”’

2ـ مُحَمَّدُ بْنُ يَحْيَى عَنْ أَحْمَدَ بْنِ مُحَمَّدٍ عَنْ مُحَمَّدِ بْنِ إِسْمَاعِيلَ عَنِ الْحَسَنِ بْنِ الْجَهْمِ عَنْ أَبِي الْحَسَنِ (عَلَيْهِ السَّلاَم) قَالَ لا تُحَقِّرُوا دَعْوَةَ أَحَدٍ فَإِنَّهُ يُسْتَجَابُ لِلْيَهُودِيِّ وَالنَّصْرَانِيِّ فِيكُمْ وَلا يُسْتَجَابُ لَهُمْ فِي أَنْفُسِهِمْ.


2. Muhammad ibn Yahya has narrated from Ahmad ibn Muhammad from Muhammad ibn Isma‘il from al-Hassan ibn al-Jahm from abu al-Hassan, ‘Alayhi al-Salam, who has said the following: “You must not ignore anyone’s prayers; the prayers of Jews and Christians for you are answered, but they are not answered for themselves.”
