994 - دارُ الغَفْلَةِ


3172.رسولُ اللَّهِ صلى اللَّه عليه وآله : السُّوقُ دارُ سَهْوٍ وغَفلَةٍ ، فَمَن سَبَّحَ فيها تَسبِيحَةً كَتَبَ اللَّهُ لَهُ بها ألفَ ألفِ حَسَنةٍ .2

3172.The Prophet (SAWA) said, 'The market is a place of distraction and negligence, so whoever occupies himself therein with the glorification of Allah, Allah records for him the worth of a million good deeds.' 3

3173.رسولُ اللَّهِ صلى اللَّه عليه وآله : لا تَكونَنَّ - إن استَطَعتَ - أوَّلَ مَن يَدخُلُ السّوقَ ولا آخِرَ مَن يَخرُجُ مِنها فَإِنَّها مَعرَكَةُ الشَّيطانِ وبِها يَنصِبُ رايَتَهُ .4

3173.The Prophet (SAWA) said, 'If you can, do not be the first to enter the market or the last the leave it, as it is the battlefield of Satan and his flag is raised in it.' 5

3174.الإمامُ الباقرُ عليه السلام : شَرُّ بِقاعِ الأرضِ الأسواقُ ، وهُو مَيدانُ إبليسَ ، يَغدُو بِرايَتِهِ ، ويَضَعُ كُرسِيَّهُ ، ويَبُثُّ ذُرِّيَّتَهُ ، فَبَينَ مُطَفِّفٍ في قَفيزٍ ، أو طائشٍ في ميزانٍ ، أو سارِقٍ في ذِراعٍ ، أو كاذِبٍ في سِلعَتِهِ ، فيقولُ : علَيكُم بِرَجُلٍ ماتَ أبوهُ وأبُوكُم حَيٌّ ، فلا يَزالُ مع أوَّلِ مَن يَدخُلُ وآخِرِ مَن يَرجِعُ .6

3174.Imam al-Baqir (AS) said, 'The most evil of places on earth are the marketplaces, for it is Satan's domain where he unfurls his flag first in the morning, takes up his seat and gives free rein to his offspring, from a vendor niggardly with his measure, to one who is reckless with his scale, to one who thieves off metres [from cloth], or to one who lies about his wares - to all he says, 'Take advantage of this man whose father [Adam (AS)] has died whilst your own father [Iblis] is still alive.' And he continues to do this from the first one to enter therein to the last one to leave.' 7 market, marketplace - refers to any such public centre for commerce and trade
