عنه، عن محمد بن علي، عن علي بن حسان، عن عبد الرحمن بن كثير، عن أبي عبد الله عليه السلام، قال: بينما أمير المؤمنين عليه السلام قاعد ومعه ابنه محمد إذ قال: يا محمد ايتنى باناء فيه ماء أتوضأ منه للصلوة فأكفأ بيده ثم قال: بسم الله الذي جعل الماء طهورا ولم يجعله نجسا، ثم استنجى فقال: أللهم حصن فرجى واعفه، و استر عورتى وحرمني على النار، ثم تمضمض فقال: اللهم لقنى حجتى يوم ألقاك، و أنطق لساني بذكرك، ثم استنشق وقال: أللهم لا تحرمنى ريح الجنة واجعلني ممن يشم ريحها وطيبها. ثم غسل وجهه وقال: اللهم بيض وجهى يوم تبيض وجوه و تسود وجوه ولا تسود وجهى يوم تبيض وجوه وتسود وجوه ثم غسل يده اليمنى فقال: اللهم أعطني كتابي بيمينى، والخلد بيساري. ثم غسل يده اليسرى فقال: ألهم لا تعطنى كتابي بيساري، ولا تجعلها مغلولة إلى عنقي، وأعوذ بك من مقطعات النيران. ثم مسح على رأسه، فقال: اللهم غشنى برحمتك وبركاتك وعفوك. ثم مسح على قدميه، فقال: اللهم ثبتنى على الصراط يوم تزل الاقدام، واجعل سعيى فيما يرضيك عنى. ثم رفع رأسه إلى محمد، فقال: يا محمد، من توضأ مثل وضوءى، وقال مثل قولى، خلق الله له من كل قطرة ملكا يقدسه ويسبحه ويكبره فيكتب الله له ثواب ذلك إلى يوم القيامة.


1. From him, from Muhammad Bin Ali, from Ali Bin Hasaan, from Abdul Rahman Bin Kaseer, (It has been narrated) from Abu Abdullah (a.s.) having said: ‘Amir-ul-Momineen (a.s.) was seated, and along with him (a.s.) was his (a.s.) son Muhammad, when he (a.s.) said: ‘O Muhammad! Bring me (a.s.) a container in which is water, so I (a.s.) can perform ablution from it for the Prayer’. He (a.s.) took it by his (a.s.) hand then said: ‘In the Name of Allah (azwj) Who Made the water pure and did not Make it dirty’. (Imam (a.s.) then taught Muhammad to recite like this) Then he (a.s.) washed and he (a.s.) said: ‘Our Allah (azwj)! Fortify my (a.s.) loins and Excuse me (a.s.), and Veil my (a.s.) honour and Prohibit Fire from me (a.s.)’. Then he (a.s.) rinsed his (a.s.) mouth, so he (a.s.) said: ‘Our Allah (azwj)! Dictate to me (a.s.) my (a.s.) arguments on the Day I (a.s.) meet You (azwj), and my (a.s.) tongue to speak with Your (azwj) mention’. Then he (a.s.) snuffed (the water) and said: ‘Our Allah (azwj)! Do not Forbid upon me (a.s.) the aroma of the Paradise and Make me (a.s.) to be from the ones who would smell its aroma and its perfumes’. Then he (a.s.) washed his (a.s.) face and said: ‘Our Allah (azwj)! Whiten my (a.s.) face on the Day You (azwj) Whiten the faces and Blacken the faces, and do not Blacken my (a.s.) face on the Day you Whiten the faces and Blacken the faces’. Then he (a.s.) washed his (a.s.) right hand, so he (a.s.) said: ‘Our Allah (azwj)! Give me (a.s.) my (a.s.) Book (of deeds) in my (a.s.) right hand, and the immortality in my (a.s.) left hand’. Then he (a.s.) washed his (a.s.) left hand, so he (a.s.) said: ‘Our Allah (azwj)! Do not Give me (a.s.) my (a.s.) Book (of deeds) in my (a.s.) left hand, and do not make it to be chained to my (a.s.) neck, and I (a.s.) seek Refuge with You (azwj) from the segments of the Fires’. Then he (a.s.) wiped upon his (a.s.) head, so he (a.s.) said: ‘Our Allah (azwj)! Divert to me (a.s.) Your (azwj) Mercy, and Your (azwj) Blessings, and Your (azwj) Forgiveness’. Then he (a.s.) wiped upon his (a.s.) feet, so he (a.s.) said: ‘Our Allah (azwj)! Make me (a.s.) to be steadfast upon the Path on the Day the feet would waver, and Make my (a.s.) quest in what Pleases You (azwj) from me (a.s.)’. Then he (a.s.) raised his (a.s.) head towards Muhammad, so he (a.s.) said: ‘O Muhammad! The one who performs his ablution like my (a.s.) ablution, and says similar to my (a.s.) speech, Allah (azwj) would Created for him, for every drop (of water used), an Angel who would Extol His (azwj) Holiness, and Glorify Him (azwj), and Exclaim His (azwj) Greatness, and Allah (azwj) would Write for him the Rewards of that, up to the Day of Judgement’.
