The forbiddance of speech in the prayer

وبه قال: أخبَرَنا محمد، قال: حدّثني أحمد بن عيسى، عن حسين بن علوان، عن أبي خالد، عن زيد، عن آبائه، عن عَليّ -عليه السلام-، قال: أقبل رسول الله -صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم- في أول عمرة اعتمرها، فأتاه رجل فسلم عليه، وهو في الصلاة، فلم يرد عليه، فلما سلم وانصر ف قال: ((أين المسلم قُبَيل إني كنت أصلي، وإنه أتاني جبريل -عليه السلام-، فقال: انه أمتك أن يردوا السلام في الصلاة)).


Muḥammad reported to us.  He said: Aḥmad b. ʿĪsā narrated to me from Ḥusayn b. ʿUlwān from Abū Khālid from Zayd from his fathers from ʿAlī عليه السلام.  He said: The Messenger of God صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم approached in the first ʿumra that he performed, and man came to him and gave salām to him while he was praying, and he did not reply to him.  

So when he had done taslīm and departed, he said: Where is the Muslim from before? I was praying, and Gabriel عليه السلام came to me.

He said: Prohibit your Umma from returning the salām in the prayer.
