Chapter 6: The (Group Of) Eights

From him, from Abu Al Hassan Yahya Al Wasity, from the one who mentioned it, (The narrator says, I) came to Abu Abdullah (asws) and said to him (asws), ‘Do you (asws) view these people, all of them as from the human beings?’ So he (asws) said: ‘Among them are those who are the fuel of the Fire, and the ones sitting in the narrow place, and the ones who have entered into what does not concern them, the meddlers in what they have no knowledge of, and the sick ones not from the disease, and the afflicted ones not from difficulties, and the violator of truth having agreed with his companions, and the proud one priding over his forefathers and he is empty from the righteousness of their deeds, and he is at the status of the Al-Khalanj (a type of fish) peeling layer from layer until it gets to the core, and it is as Allah (azwj) Mighty and Majestic has Said

They are nothing but like cattle; but, they are straying farther off from the path’(25:44).1

From him, from one of our companions, raising it to Abu Abdullah (asws) having said: ‘Rasul Allah (saww) said: ‘There are eight from whom Prayer would not be Accepted – the runaway slave until he returns to his master; and the disobedient (wife) while her husband is angry with her; and the preventer of Zakat, and the avoider of ablution; and the female (servant of Allah (azwj)) who Prays without a scarf; and the Prayer leader with whom the people Pray while they dislike him; and the ‘Al-Zabeyn’.

They said, ‘O Rasul Allah (saww)! And what is ‘Al- Zabeyn’?’ He (saww) said: ‘The man who does not remove (from him) feces and urine; and drunkards. So these are the eight from whom Prayer is not acceptable’.2
