Back to chapter

2ـ عِدَّةٌ مِنْ أَصْحَابِنَا عَنْ أَحْمَدَ بْنِ مُحَمَّدِ بْنِ خَالِدٍ عَنْ مُحَمَّدِ بْنِ عَلِيٍّ عَنْ يُونُسَ بْنِ يَعْقُوبَ عَنْ عَبْدِ الأعْلَى عَنْ أَبِي عَبْدِ الله (عَلَيهِ السَّلام) قَالَ مَا اجْتَمَعَ أَرْبَعَةُ رَهْطٍ قَطُّ عَلَى أَمْرٍ وَاحِدٍ فَدَعَوُا الله إِلا تَفَرَّقُوا عَنْ إِجَابَةٍ.


2. A number of our people have narrated from Ahmad ibn Muhammad ibn Khalid from Muhammad ibn Ali from Yunus ibn Ya’qub from ‘Abd al-‘Ala’ from abu ‘Abd Allah (a.s.) who has said the following:“Abu ‘Abd Allah (a.s.) has said, ‘Whenever a group (of forty) people come together for a matter to pray and plead before Allah for help, when they disperse their prayer will be accepted.’”
