Chapter 45

باب تحريم الصلاة وتحليلها

The tahrim of the salat and its tahlil

قال الصادق (عليه السلام): (تحريم الصلاة)  التكبير، وتحليلها التسليم .

as-Sadiq عليه السلام said: The tahrim of the salat is the takbir, and its tahlil is the taslim.  (translator’s note: meaning after the takbir, it is now made haram (tahrim) to talk and do things that are extraneous to the salat since it has commenced, and after the taslim it is now made halal (tahlil) as the prayer has finished, so the tahrim and tahlil are used to refer to its beginning and end)
