(6508) Being Dutiful To One's Parents Takes Precedence Over Voluntary Prayer, Etc

حَدَّثَنَا شَيْبَانُ بْنُ فَرُّوخَ، حَدَّثَنَا سُلَيْمَانُ بْنُ الْمُغِيرَةِ، حَدَّثَنَا حُمَيْدُ بْنُ هِلَالٍ، عَنْ أَبِي رَافِعٍ، عَنْ أَبِي هُرَيْرَةَ، أَنَّهُ قَالَ: كَانَ جُرَيْجٌ يَتَعَبَّدُ فِي صَوْمَعَةٍ، فَجَاءَتْ أُمُّهُ. قَالَ حُمَيْدٌ: فَوَصَفَ لَنَا أَبُو رَافِعٍ صِفَةَ أَبِي هُرَيْرَةَ لِصِفَةِ رَسُولِ اللهِ صَلَّى اللهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ أُمَّهُ حِينَ دَعَتْهُ، كَيْفَ جَعَلَتْ كَفَّهَا فَوْقَ حَاجِبِهَا، ثُمَّ رَفَعَتْ رَأْسَهَا إِلَيْهِ تَدْعُوهُ، فَقَالَتْ: يَا جُرَيْجُ أَنَا أُمُّكَ كَلِّمْنِي فَصَادَفَتْهُ يُصَلِّي، فَقَالَ: اللهُمَّ أُمِّي وَصَلَاتِي، فَاخْتَارَ صَلَاتَهُ، فَرَجَعَتْ، ثُمَّ عَادَتْ فِي الثَّانِيَةِ، فَقَالَتْ: يَا جُرَيْجُ أَنَا أُمُّكَ فَكَلِّمْنِي، قَالَ: اللهُمَّ أُمِّي وَصَلَاتِي، فَاخْتَارَ صَلَاتَهُ، فَقَالَتْ: اللهُمَّ إِنَّ هَذَا جُرَيْجٌ وَهُوَ ابْنِي وَإِنِّي كَلَّمْتُهُ، فَأَبَى أَنْ يُكَلِّمَنِي، اللهُمَّ فَلَا تُمِتْهُ حَتَّى تُرِيَهُ الْمُومِسَاتِ. قَالَ: وَلَوْ دَعَتْ عَلَيْهِ أَنْ يُفْتَنَ لَفُتِنَ. قَالَ: وَكَانَ رَاعِي ضَأْنٍ يَأْوِي إِلَى دَيْرِهِ، قَالَ: فَخَرَجَتِ امْرَأَةٌ مِنَ الْقَرْيَةِ فَوَقَعَ عَلَيْهَا الرَّاعِي، فَحَمَلَتْ فَوَلَدَتْ غُلَامًا، فَقِيلَ لَهَا: مَا هَذَا؟ قَالَتْ: مِنْ صَاحِبِ هَذَا الدَّيْرِ، قَالَ فَجَاءُوا بِفُئُوسِهِمْ وَمَسَاحِيهِمْ، فَنَادَوْهُ فَصَادَفُوهُ يُصَلِّي، فَلَمْ يُكَلِّمْهُمْ، قَالَ: فَأَخَذُوا يَهْدِمُونَ دَيْرَهُ، فَلَمَّا رَأَى ذَلِكَ نَزَلَ إِلَيْهِمْ، فَقَالُوا لَهُ: سَلْ هَذِهِ، قَالَ فَتَبَسَّمَ، ثُمَّ مَسَحَ رَأْسَ الصَّبِيِّ فَقَالَ: مَنْ أَبُوكَ؟ قَالَ: أَبِي رَاعِي الضَّأْنِ، فَلَمَّا سَمِعُوا ذَلِكَ مِنْهُ قَالُوا: نَبْنِي مَا هَدَمْنَا مِنْ دَيْرِكَ بِالذَّهَبِ وَالْفِضَّةِ، قَالَ: لَا، وَلَكِنْ أَعِيدُوهُ تُرَابًا كَمَا كَانَ، ثُمَّ عَلَاهُ


Abu Huraira reported that Juraij was one who was devoted to (prayer) in the temple. His mother came to him. Humaid said that Abu Rafi' demonstrated before us like the demonstration made by abu Huraira to whom Allah's Messenger ( ‌صلی ‌اللہ ‌علیہ ‌وسلم ‌ ) had demonstrated as his mother called him placing her palms upon the eyebrows and lifting her head for calling him and said: Juraij, it is your mother, so talk to her. She found him at that time absorbed in prayer, so he said (to himself): O Lord, my mother (is calling me) (whereas I am absorbed) in my prayer. He opted for prayer. She (his mother) went back, then came again for the second time and said: O Juraij, it is your mother (calling you), so talk to me. He said: O Allah. there is my mother also and my prayer, and he opted for prayer. She said: O Allah, this Juraij is my son. I pray to talk to him but he refuses to talk to me. O Allah, don't bring death to him unless he has seen the prostitutes, and had she invoked the curse upon him (from the heart of her heart) he would have been involved in some turmoil. There was a shepherd living near by his temple (the temple where Juraij was engaged in prayer). It so happened that a woman of that village came there and that shepherd committed fornication with her and she became pregnant and gave birth to a child. It was said to her: Whose child is this? She said: He is the child of one who is living in this temple. So there came persons with hatchets and spades. They called Juraij. He was absorbed in prayer and he did not talk to them and they were about to demolish that temple that he saw them and then came to them and they said: Ask her (this woman) what she says. He smiled and then touched the head of the child and said: Who is your father? He (the child) said: My father is the shepherd of the sheep, and when they heard this, they said: We are prepared to rebuild with gold and silver what we have demolished from your temple. He said: No, rebuild it with clay as it had been before. He then went up (to his room and absorbed himself in prayer).
