حَدَّثَنِي مُحَمَّدُ بْنُ الْحَسَنِ قَالَ حَدَّثَنِي مُحَمَّدُ بْنُ أَبِي الْقَاسِمِ عَنْ مُحَمَّدِ بْنِ عَلِيٍّ الْكُوفِيِّ عَنْ حَنَانِ بْنِ سَدِيرٍ عَنْ أَبِي سَلَّامٍ الْعَبْدِيِّ قَالَ: دَخَلْتُ عَلَى أَبِي عَبْدِ اللَّهِ ع فَقُلْتُ مَا تَقُولُ فِي رَجُلٍ يُؤَخِّرُ صَلَاةَ الْعَصْرِ مُتَعَمِّداً قَالَ يَأْتِي يَوْمَ الْقِيَامَةِ موترا [مَوْتُوراً] أَهْلَهُ وَ مَالَهُ قَالَ قُلْتُ جُعِلْتُ فِدَاكَ وَ إِنْ كَانَ مِنْ أَهْلِ الْجَنَّةِ قَالَ وَ إِنْ كَانَ مِنْ أَهْلِ الْجَنَّةِ قَالَ قُلْتُ وَ مَا مَنْزِلُهُ فِي الْجَنَّةِ قَالَ موترا [مَوْتُوراً] أَهْلَهُ وَ مَالَهُ يَتَضَيَّفُ أَهْلَهَا لَيْسَ لَهُ فِيهَا مَنْزِلٌ.

Abu Sallaam al-Abdi says that I went to Imam Ja’far Sadiq (a.s.) and asked:

“What do you have to say about one who delays offering the Asr prayer purposely?”

Imam (a.s.) replied, “He will come on the Day of Judgement alone, without his relatives and wealth.”

I asked, “May I be sacrificed for you! Even if he is among the people of Paradise?”

Imam (a.s.) answered, “Yes, even if he is among the people of Paradise.”

I asked, “What will be his position in Paradise?”

Imam (a.s.) responded, “He will be deprived of relatives and wealth over there also. He will stay as a guest of others (in Paradise) and will have no house of his own.”
