باب فضل الصلاة

Virtue of salat

قال الصادق (عليه السلام): للمصلي ثلاث خصاليتناثر عليه البر  من أعنان السماء  إلى مفرق رأسه، وتحف به الملائكة  من قدميه إلى أعنان السماء، وملك (يناديهأيها المصلي، لو تعلم من تناجي ومن ينظر إليك، ما التفت  ولا زلت عن موضعك أبدا .

as-Sadiq عليه السلام said: The one who is praying has three characteristics: piety is bestrewed upon him from the quarters of Heaven (or: the sky) to the middle of his head, the angels surround him from his feet to the quarters of Heaven, and an angel calls out to him: O one who is praying, were you to know with whom you are conversing and who is looking at you, never would you turn nor slip from your place.
