Hadith #1

[-/1] الفقيه: باسناده عن عمر بن أذينه عن زرارة عن أبي جعفر عليه السلام قال: سألته عن المريض كيف يسجد؟ فقال: على خمرة أو على مروحة أو على سواك يرفع إليه وهو أفضل من الايماء، إنما كره من كره السجود على المروحة من أجل الاوثان التي كانت تعبد من دون الله وإنا لم نعبد غير الله قط فاسجدوا على المروحة وعلى السواك وعلى عود

1. [1/-] al-Faqih: Via his chain to Umar b. Udhayna from Zurara from Abi Ja`far عليه السلام, he (Zurara) said: I asked him about the sick person – how does he prostrate? He said: on a small palm-leaf mat or on a hand-held fan or on a tooth-stick which is raised to him [made to touch his forehead], and it is better than gesturing [without the forehead touching anything], verily the one who dislikes prostrating on the hand-held fan dislikes it because of the idols which used to be worshiped apart from Allah, and we never worship anything besides Allah ever – so prostrate on the fan and on the tooth-stick and on a piece of wood.
