1 حَدَّثَنِي أَبِي وَ مُحَمَّدُ بْنُ الْحَسَنِ بْنِ أَحْمَدَ بْنِ الْوَلِيدِ عَنْ مُحَمَّدِ بْنِ الْحَسَنِ الصَّفَّارِ عَنْ أَحْمَدَ بْنِ الْحَسَنِ بْنِ عَلِيِّ بْنِ الْفَضَّالِ عَنْ عَمْرِو بْنِ سَعِيدٍ عَنْ مُصَدِّقِ بْنِ صَدَقَةَ عَنْ عَمَّارِ بْنِ مُوسَى السَّابَاطِيِّ عَنْ أَبِي عَبْدِ اللَّهِ (ع) قَالَ سَأَلْتُهُ عَنِ الصَّلَاةِ فِي مَسْجِدِ الرَّسُولِ (ص) هِيَ مِثْلُ الصَّلَاةِ بِالْمَدِينَةِ قَالَ (ع) لَا لِأَنَّ الصَّلَاةَ فِي مَسْجِدِ رَسُولِ اللَّهِ (ص) بِأَلْفِ صَلَاةٍ وَ الصَّلَاةَ بِالْمَدِينَةِ مِثْلُ الصَّلَاةِ فِي سَائِرِ الْأَمْصَارِ

1. My father and Muĥammad ibn Ĥasan ibn Aĥmad ibn Walǐd both narrated to me from Muĥammad ibn Ĥasan Al-Šaffār, from Aĥmad ibn Ĥasan ibn ‘Ali ibn Faďďāl, from ‘Amr ibn Sa’ǐd, from Mušaddiq ibn Šadaqah, from ‘Ammār ibn Mūsā Al-Sābāťi, who said: I asked Abā ‘Abdillāh (Imam Šādiq (a.s.)), “Is praying in the Mosque of the Prophet (s.a.a.w.) the same as praying anywhere else in Madǐnah?” Imam (a.s.) replied, “No. One Šalāt (prayer) in the Mosque of the Messenger of Allāh (s.a.a.w.) is equal to one thousand prayers elsewhere. However, praying anywhere else in Madǐnah is just like praying in any other city.”
