The importance of takbir ula according to a Tabi’i

Question

Kindly translate the following and is it suitable to quote?

‏عن إبراهيم رحمه الله قال إذا رأيت الرجل يتهاون في التكبيرة الأولى  فاغسل يدك منه

 

Answer

Ibrahim [ibn Yazid At Taymi rahimahullah, a Tabi’i] says:

“When you see a man being unmindful and neglectful towards attaining the takbir ula [initial takbir of the Imam in Salah], then wipe your hands off him [i.e. there is no good in such a person].

(Hilyatul Awliya, vol. 4 pg. 215. Also see Siyaru A’alamin Nubala, vol. 5 pg. 62)

 

This statement is suitable to quote as the statements of Ibrahim ibn Yazid (rahimahullah).

 

And Allah Ta’ala Knows best.
