عَنِ ابْن طاووس ، عَنْ أَبِيهِ :

‏أَنَّهُ كان يَتَحَرَّى السَّاعَةَ الَّتِي يُسْتَجَابُ فِيهَا الدُّعاءُ

‏مِنْ يوم الْجُمُعَةِ بَعْدَ الْعَصْر

‏قال ابْنُ طَاووسٍ:

‏وماتَ أَبِي فِي ساعَةٍ كَانَ يُحِبُّهَا،

‏ماتَ يومَ الْجُمُعَةِ بَعْدَ الْعَصْرِ

‏[ مصنف عبد الرزاق ٥٥٧٤ ]

Ibn Tawoos رحمة الله عليه said about his father:

He used to actively search out the hour in which prayers are answered from the day of Friday after ‘asr (which is one hour before maghreb).

Ibn Tawoos then said:

My father died in that same hour that he loved (to search out). He died on a Friday after ‘asr.

The greatest open door…

قال ابن القيم رحمه الله :

Then what of those who short change in regards to their religion…

قال ابن رجب رحمه الله :

‏فكيف حال من طفف مكيال الدين


‏- لطائف المعارف

If وَيْل (valley in jahanam) is the punishment for those those who short change with regards to matters of the worldly affair. Then what will be the condition of those who short change with regards to their religion (Salah, zakah, etc.)

If it is not washed…

‏قال ابن الجوزي رحمه الله :


‏وقوع الذنب على القلب كوقوع الدهن على الثوب ، إن لم تعجل غسله وإلا انبسط


‏- المدهش

Ibn al-Jawzi رحمة الله عليه said:

Sinning on the heart is like the dropping of grease onto clothes. If it is not washed (with istighfar and righteous actions) it will spread.
