Back to chapter

3ـ عِدَّةٌ مِنْ أَصْحَابِنَا عَنْ سَهْلِ بْنِ زِيَادٍ عَنِ ابْنِ فَضَّالٍ عَمَّنْ ذَكَرَهُ عَنْ أَبِي عَبْدِ الله (عَلَيهِ السَّلام) قَالَ ثَلاثَةٌ يَشْكُونَ إِلَى الله عَزَّ وَجَلَّ مَسْجِدٌ خَرَابٌ لا يُصَلِّي فِيهِ أَهْلُهُ وَعَالِمٌ بَيْنَ جُهَّالٍ وَمُصْحَفٌ مُعَلَّقٌ قَدْ وَقَعَ عَلَيْهِ الْغُبَارُ لا يُقْرَأُ فِيهِ‏.


3. A number of our people have narrated from Sahl ibn Ziyad from ibn Faddal from those whom he has mentioned (in his book) from abu ‘Abd Allah (a.s.) who has said the following: “Three things will complain before Allah, the Most Majestic, the Most Holy: A Mosque where no one of the neighborhood performs prayer, a scholar among the ignorant people and the copy of the Holy Quran on which dust has accumulated and no one reads it.”
