Waterless Desolate Land

July 26, 2015 Comments Off on Waterless Desolate Land

Yahya related to me from Malik from Yahya ibn Sa’id that Sa’id ibn al-Musayyib used to say:

“Whoever prays on waterless, desolate land; an angel prays on his right and an angel prays on his left. When he calls both the Adhan and the Iqama for the prayer, or calls out the Iqama, angels like mountains pray behind him.”

وَحَدَّثَنِي عَنْ مَالِكٍ، عَنْ يَحْيَى بْنِ سَعِيدٍ، عَنْ سَعِيدِ بْنِ الْمُسَيَّبِ، أَنَّهُ كَانَ يَقُولُ مَنْ صَلَّى بِأَرْضِ فَلاَةٍ صَلَّى عَنْ يَمِينِهِ مَلَكٌ وَعَنْ شِمَالِهِ مَلَكٌ فَإِذَا أَذَّنَ وَأَقَامَ الصَّلاَةَ أَوْ أَقَامَ صَلَّى وَرَاءَهُ مِنَ الْمَلاَئِكَةِ أَمْثَالُ الْجِبَالِ .

{Muwatta of Imam Malik ~ Book of Prayer ~ Book 3, Hadith #160}
