أبي رحمه الله قال حدثنا سعد بن عبد الله عن أحمد بن أبي عبد الله عن ابن فضال عن ثعلبة عن زرارة أو محمد بن مسلم قال: سألت أبا جعفر عليه السلام عن الطواف أيرمل فيه الرجل؟ فقال ان رسول الله صلى الله عليه وآله لما ان قدم مكة وكان بينه وبين المشركين الكتاب الذي قد علمتم، أمر الناس أن يتجلدوا وقال: أخرجوا أعضادكم وأخرج رسول الله صلى الله عليه وآله عضديه ثم رمل بالبيت ليريهم انهم لم يصبهم جهد، فمن أجل ذلك يرمل الناس واني لامشي مشيا، وقد كان علي بن الحسين يمشي مشيا.

1. My father said, ‘Sa’ad Bin Abdullah Narrated to us, from Ahmad Bin Abu Abdullah, from Ibn Fazaal, from Sa’ajba, from Zarara or Muhammad Bin Muslim who said, ‘I asked Abu Ja’far (asws) about the circumambulation, should the man walk briskly in it?’ So he (asws) said: ‘Rasool-Allah (saww), when he (saww) proceeded to Makka, and there was in between him (saww) and the Polytheists was the writing (agreement) which you know, ordered the people that they should become firm. And he (saww) said: ‘Bring out your shoulders!’ And Rasool-Allah (saww) brought out his (saww) shoulder, then trotted (walked briskly) by the House (Kabah), in order to show them they had not been struck by strain (i.e., the circumambulations is effortless for them). So, it is due to that the people are trotting, and I (asws) walk a middle pace, and Ali (asws) Bin Al-Husayn (asws) used to walk a middle pace’.

وبهذا الاسناد عن ثعلبة عن يعقوب الاحمر قال: قال أبو عبد الله عليه السلام كان في غزوة الحديبية وادع رسول الله صلى الله عليه وآله أهل مكة ثلاث سنين ثم دخل فقضي نسكه، فمر رسول الله صلى الله عليه وآله بنفر من أصحابه جلوس في فناء الكعبة فقال هؤلاء قومكم على رؤس الجبال لا يرونكم فيروا فيكم ضعفا، قال فقاموا فشدوا أزرهم وشدوا ايديهم على اوساطهم ثم رملوا.

2. And by this chain, from Sa’alba, from Yaqoub Al-Ahmar who said, ‘Abu Abdullah (asws) said: ‘And it was in the military expedition of Hudeybiyya, and Rasool-Allah (saww) left the people of Makkah for three years. Then he (saww) entered and fulfilled his (saww) rituals. So, Rasool-Allah (saww) passed by a number of his (saww) companions sitting in the courtyard of the Kabah. So he (saww) said: ‘They are your people on top of the mountain looking at you, so they would see you as weakened’. He (asws) said: ‘So they arose, tightened their trousers, and pulled their hands around their midst, then trotted’.
