The Ahl-ul-Bayt's (A.S) Assiduity in Worship (Part 3)


Imam Sadiq (A.S): My father would perform prayers in the middle of the night and would keep his prostration (Sajdah) so long as we supposed he had fallen asleep.

Imam Sadiq (A.S): My father would abundantly say dhikr (remembrance of Allah). I would walk him while he was busy uttering the dhikr of Allah; I would eat with him, while he was busy saying dhikr of Allah; he would talk to people and this would not distract him from Divine remembrance. I noticed his tongue stuck to his palate due to frequent saying of the dhikr Lailaha Illallah.

He would gather us and wanted us to say dhikr until sunrise.

Any of us who were able to recite the Qur’an was ordered to recite it, and those who did not recite were told to say the dhikr.

Yahya al-Alawi: Because of assiduity in worship, Imam Musa ibn Jafar (A.S) is known as Abd al-Salih (the pious servant). Our companions have related that he once entered the Mosque of Rasul Allah (PBUH) in the evening and performed a Sajdah (prostration) while saying: My sins are abundant, so your forgiveness is to be plentiful, O most Reverent and most Forgiveful! He repeated this sentence until the day broke.

Abd al-Salam ibn Salih al-Hirawi: I went to the door of a house in Sarakhs where Imam Reza (A.S) was incarcerated. I asked the Jailer permission to enter. He said: You cannot visit him. I asked why. He replied: Because he says a thousand rakah as of prayers daily. He only retreats at the beginning of the day, before noon, and just before the sunset for an hour, and at this moment he is, sitting in his place of prayer engaged in supplication to his Creator.
