عنه، عن محمد بن بكر، عن زكريا بن محمد، عن عيسى بن سوادة، عن ابن المنكدر، عن أبي جعفر عليه السلام، قال: قال ابن عباس: ما ندمت على شئ ندمى على ان لم أحج ماشيا لانى سمعت رسول الله صلى الله عليه وآله يقول: من حج بيت الله ماشيا كتب الله له سبعة ألف حسنة من حسنات الحرم، قيل: يا رسول الله وما حسنات الحرم؟ - قال: حسنة ألف ألف حسنة، وقال: فضل المشاة في الحج كفضل القمر ليلة البدر على سائر النجوم، وكان الحسين بن علي عليهما السلام يمشى إلى الحج ودابته تقاد وراءه.


1. From him, from Muhammad Bin Bakr, from Zakariyya Bin Muhammad, from Isa Bin Sawada, from Ibn Al Munkadar, (It has been narrated) from Abu Ja’far (a.s.) having said: ‘Ibn Abbas said, ‘I did not regret over anything that I regretted upon with more regret than, that I did not go for Hajj walking, because I heard Rasool-Allah (saww) saying: ‘The one who performs Hajj of the House of Allah (azwj) walking, Allah (azwj) Writes for him seven thousand Rewards from the Rewards of the Sanctuary’. It was said, ‘O Rasool-Allah (saww)! And what are the Rewards of the Sanctuary?’ He (saww) said: ‘A Reward thousand thousand (times) a Reward’. And he (saww) said: ‘The merit of the walking during the Hajj is like the merit of the moon on the night of the full moon over the rest of the stars. An Al-Husayn (a.s.) Bin Ali (a.s.) walked to the Hajj, and his (a.s.) animal (ride) was driven behind him (a.s.)’.
