ahmad-zuhd:1315ʿAbdullāh from my father > Sayyār > Jaʿfar > Thābit

[Machine] Khalid Al-Asari used to pray Fajr at his community center, then he would continuously remember Allah until the sun rises. After that, he would go home and be presented with two cushions, then he would close his door and say, "Welcome, O angels of my Lord. I bear witness by Allah that I have shown you the best of myself today, take it with the name of Allah, glory be to Allah, praise be to Allah, there is no god but Allah, and Allah is the Greatest." He would continue to do so until his eyes become heavy or he goes out to perform salah.  

الزهد لأحمد:١٣١٥حَدَّثَنَا عَبْدُ اللَّهِ حَدَّثَنَا أَبِي حَدَّثَنَا سَيَّارٌ حَدَّثَنَا جَعْفَرٌ حَدَّثَنَا ثَابِتٌ قَالَ

كَانَ خُلَيْدٌ الْعَصَرِيُّ يُصَلِّي الْغَدَاةَ فِي نَادِي قَوْمِهِ ثُمَّ يَذْكُرُ اللَّهَ حَتَّى تَطْلُعَ الشَّمْسُ ثُمَّ يَأْمُرُ بِبَيْتِهِ فَيُقَامُ وَتُلْقَى لَهُ وِسَادَتَانِ ثُمَّ يَغْلِقُ بَابَهُ فَيَقُولُ «مَرْحَبًا بِمَلَائِكَةِ رَبِّي أَمَا وَاللَّهِ لَأُشْهِدَنَّكُمُ الْيَوْمَ مِنْ نَفْسِي خَيْرًا خُذُوا بِسْمِ اللَّهِ سُبْحَانَ اللَّهِ وَالْحَمْدُ لِلَّهِ وَلَا إِلَهَ إِلَّا اللَّهُ وَاللَّهُ أَكْبَرُ وَلَا يَزَالُ كَذَلِكَ حَتَّى تَغْلِبَهُ عَيْنَاهُ أَوْ يَخْرُجَ إِلَى الصَّلَاةِ»
