Back to book

- عنه، عن النوفلي، باسناده، قال: قال رسول الله صلى الله عليه وآله: ما استخلف رجل على أهله بخلافة أفضل من ركعتين يركعهما إذا أراد الخروج إلى سفر، يقول: " اللهم إنى أستودعك نفسي وأهلي ومالى وذريتي ودنياى وآخرتي وأمانتي وخاتمة عملي " إلا أعطاه الله ما سأل ".


1. From him, from Al Nowfaly, by his chain, said, ‘Rasool-Allah (saww) said: ‘A man cannot leave behind a Caliph (caretaker) over his family better than two Bowings (of Prayer), kneeling in both of these whenever intending for the going out on a journey, saying, ‘O Allah ! I entrust to You myself, and my family, and my wealth, and my children, and my world, and my Hereafter, and my entrustments, and the completion of my work’, except that Allah would Give him whatever he asks for’.




عنه، عن ابن محبوب، عن الحارث بن محمد أبى جعفر الاحوال، عن بريد بن معاوية العجلى، قال: كان أبو جعفر (ع) إذا أراد سفرا جمع عياله في بيت ثم قال " اللهم إنى أستودعك الغداة نفسي ومالى وأهلي وولدى والشاهد منا والغائب، اللهم اجعلنا في جوارك، اللهم لا تسلبنا نعمتك، ولا تغير ما بنا من عافيتك وفضلك ".


2. From him, from Ibn Mahboun, from Al Haris Bin Muhammad Abu Ja’far Al Ahowl, from Bureyd Bin uawiya Al Ajaly who said, ‘Whenever Abu Ja’far (a.s.) intended to travel, he (a.s.) would gather his (a.s.) family in the house, then say: ‘O Allah ! I (a.s.) entrust to You (a.s.) from tomorrow, myself (a.s.), and my (a.s.) wealth, and my (a.s.) family, and my (a.s.) children, and the ones present from us and absent. O Allah ! Make us to be in Your Vicinity. O Allah ! Do not Confiscate Your Bounties, and do not Change what is with us of good health from You and Your Grace’.




عنه، عن موسى بن القاسم، قال: حدثنا الصباح، قال: سمعت أبا الحسن موسى بن جعفر (ع) يقول: لو كان الرجل منكم إذا أراد سفرا قام على باب داره من تلقاء وجهه الذى يتوجه له فقرأ فاتحة الكتاب أمامه، وعن يمينه، وعن شماله، وآية الكرسي أمامه، وعن يمينه، وعن شماله، ثم قال: " اللهم احفظني واحفظ ما معى، وسلمنى وسلم ما معى، وبلغني وبلغ ما معى، ببلاغك الحسن الجميل " لحفظه الله وحفظ ما عليه، وحفظ ما معه، وسلمه الله وسلم ما معه، وبلغ الله وبلغ ما معه، ثم قال لى: يا صباح أما رأيت الرجل يحفظ ولا يحفظ ما معه، ويسلم ولا يسلم ما معه، ويبلغ ولا يبلغ ما معه؟ - قلت: بلى جعلت فداك


3. From him, from Musa Bin Al Qasim, from Al Sabah who said, ‘I heard Abu Al-Hassan Musa (a.s.) Bin Ja’far (a.s.) saying: ‘If only the man from among you, when he intends to travel, would stand by the door of his house face the direction that he intends for and recite the Opening of the Book (Chapter 1 – Surah Al Fatiha) in front of him, and on his right, and on his left, and the Verse of the Chair (Chapter 2: 255 – Ayat Al-Kursy) in front of him, and on his right, and on his left, then say, ‘O Allah ! Protect me and Protect what is with me, and Safeguard me and Safeguard what is with me, and Deliver me (to the destination) and Deliver what is with me, with Your good and beautiful Deliverance’. Allah would Protect him and Protect what he is upon, and Protect what is with him, and Allah would Safeguard him and Safeguard what is with him, and Allah would Deliver him and Deliver what is with him’. Then he (a.s.) said to me: ‘O Sabah! But, have you seen the man who has been Protected whilst what is with him has not been Protected, and he is safe but what is with him is not safe, and he reaches (his destination) and what is with him does not reach?’ I said, ‘Yes, may I be sacrificed for you (a.s.)’.




عنه، عن الحسن بن الحسين أو غيره، عن محمد بن سنان، رفعه قال: كان أبو عبد الله (ع) إذا أراد سفرا قال: " اللهم خل سبيلنا، وأحسن سيرنا، (أو قال: " مسيرنا ") وأعظم عافيتنا "


4. From him, from Al Hassan Bin Al Husayn or someone else, from Muhammad Bin Sinan, raising it, said: ‘Whenever Abu Abdullah (a.s.) intended to travel, would said: ‘O Allah ! Open our way for us (a.s.), and Make good our (a.s.) journey, (or said: ‘our (a.s.) marching), and Magnify our (a.s.) good health’.




عنه، عن عدة من أصحابنا، عن على بن أسباط، عن أبى الحسن الرضا (ع) قال: قال لى: إذا خرجت من منزلك في سفر أو حضر، فقل: " بسم الله، آمنت بالله، توكلت على الله، ما شاء الله، لا حول ولا قوة ألا بالله ". فتلقاه الشيطان فتضرب الملائكة وجوهها وتقول: ما سبيلكم عليه وقد سمى الله وآمن به، وتوكل على الله، وقال: " ما شآء الله، لا قوة إلا بالله " ورواه ابن فضال، عن الحسن بن الجهم، عن الرضا (ع) إلا أنه قال: " لا حول ولا قوة إلا بالله ".


5. From him, from a number of our companions, from Ali Bin Asbaat, (It has been narrated) from Abu Al-Hassan Al-Ridha (a.s.), who said to me: ‘If you go out from your house regarding a journey or (face) a hazard, so say, ‘In the Name of Allah , I believe in Allah , rely upon Allah , whatever Allah so Desires, there is no Might nor Strength except by Allah ’. So if the Satans (la) were to come across you, the Angels would strike his (la) face and would be saying, ‘There is no way for you (la) against him, and he has taken the Name of Allah and believed in Him ’. And say, ‘Whatever Allah so Desires, there is no Might or Strength except by Allah ’. And Ibn Fazal reported from Al Hassan Bin Al Jaham, (Also the same has been narrated) from Al-Ridha (a.s.) except that he (a.s.) said: ‘There is no Might or Strength except by Allah ’.




عنه، عن على بن الحكم، عن عاصم بن حميد، عن أبى بصير، عن أبى جعفر (ع) قال: من قال حين يخرج من باب داره: " أعوذ بما عاذت به ملائكة الله ورسله من شر هذا اليوم الجديد الذى إذا غابت شمسه لم تعد من شر نفسي ومن شر الشياطين، ومن شر من نصب لاولياء الله، ومن شر الجن والانس، ومن شر السباع والهوام، ومن شر ركوب المحارم كلها، أجير نفسي بالله من كل سوء " غفر الله له وتاب عليه، وكفاه المهم، وحجزه عن السوء، وعصمه من الشر.


6. From him, from Ali Bin Al Hakam, from Aasim Bin Hameed, from Abu Baseer, Abu Ja’far (a.s.) has said: ‘The one who says when going out of the door of his house, ‘I seek Refuge with the Angels of Allah and His Rasool (saww), from whatever would harm me, and from the evil of this new day whose sun when it sets, from the evil of myself and from the evil of the Satan (la), and from the evil of the one who establishes hostility (Nasibi) against the Guardians (a.s.) of Allah , and from the evil of the Jinn and the human beings, and from the evil of the predatory animals and the vermin (bugs), and from the evil of indulging in Forbidden (matters), all of them, earning for myself by Allah , from every evil’ – Allah would Forgive him and Turn towards him (with Mercy), and Suffice for him for his important (matters), and Keep away the evil from him, and Protect him from the wickedness’.




عنه، عن محمد بن على، عن عبد الرحمن بن أبى هاشم، عن أبى خديجة قال: كان أبو عبد الله (ع) إذا خرج يقول: " اللهم لك خرجت، ولك أسلمت، وبك آمنت، وعليك توكلت، اللهم بارك لى في يومى هذا، وارزقني قوته ونصره وفتحه وظهوره وهداه وبركته، واصرف عنى شره وشر ما فيه، بسم الله والله أكبر والحمد لله رب العالمين، اللهم إنى خرجت، فبارك لى في خروجي وانفعني به " وإذا دخل منزله يقول مثل ذلك.


7. From him, from Muhammad Bin Ali, from Abdul Rahman Bin Abu Hashim, from Abu Khadeeja who said, ‘Whenever Abu Abdullah (a.s.) went out, he (a.s.) was saying: ‘O Allah ! It is for You that I (a.s.) go out, and to You that I (a.s.) submit, and in You that I (a.s.) believe, and upon You that I (a.s.) rely. O Allah Bless me (a.s.) in this day of mine, and Sustain me (a.s.) with its livelihood, and its help, and its victory, and its success, and its Guidance, and its Blessing, and Change from me (a.s.) its evil and the evil of whatever is in it. In the Name of Allah , and Allah is the Greatest, and the Praise is for Allah the Lord of the Worlds. O Allah ! I (a.s.) am going out, so Bless me (a.s.) in my (a.s.) going out, and Make me (a.s.) to benefit by it’. And when he (a.s.) entered his (a.s.) house, he (a.s.) would say similar to that’.




عنه، عن أحمد بن محمد، عن أبان الاحمر، عن الحلبي، عن أبى عبد الله (ع) قال: كان أبو جعفر (ع) إذا خرج من بيته يقول: " بسم الله خرجت، وبسم الله ولجت، و على الله توكلت، ولا حول ولا قوة إلا بالله العلى العظيم ". قال محمد بن سنان: فكان أبو - الحسن الرضا (ع) يقول ذلك إذا خرج من منزله.


8. From him, from Ahmad Bin Muhammad, from Aban Al Ahmar, from Al Halby, Abu Abdullah (a.s.) has said: ‘Whenever Abu Ja’far (a.s.) went out from his (a.s.) house, he (a.s.) was saying: ‘It is by the Name of Allah that I (a.s.) go out, and by the Name of Allah that I (a.s.) enter, and upon Allah do I (a.s.) rely, and there is no Might or Strength except by Allah , the Exalted, the Magnificent’. Muhammad Bin Sinan said, ‘And Abu Al-Hassan Al-Ridha (a.s.) used to say that when he (a.s.) went out from his (a.s.) house’.




عنه، عن عثمان بن عيسى، عن أبى حمزة الثمالى، قال: استاذنت على أبى جعفر (ع) فخرج على وشفتاه تتحركان، فقلت: جعلت فداك، خرجت وشفتاك تحركان؟ - فقال وألهمنا ذلك يا ثمالى، فقلت: نعم فأخبرني به، فقال: نعم يا ثمالى، من قال حين يخرج من منزله: " بسم الله، حسبى الله، توكلت على الله، اللهم إنى أسألك خير أمورى كلها، وأعوذ بك من خزى الدنيا وعذاب الآخرة "، كفاه الله ما أهمه من أمر دنياه وآخرته.


9. From him, from usman Bin Isa, from Abu Hamza Al Sumaly who said, ‘I sought permission to (see) Abu Ja’far (a.s.), so the Imam (a.s.) came out to me and his (a.s.) lips were moving. So I said, ‘May I be sacrificed for you (a.s.)! You (a.s.) came out, and your lips were moving?’ So he (a.s.) said: ‘And it is our (a.s.) inspiration, O Sumaly!’ So I said, ‘Yes, so inform me of it’. So he (a.s.) said: ‘Yes, O Sumaly! The one who says when he goes out from his house, ‘In the Name of Allah , Allah is Sufficient for me, I rely upon Allah . O Allah , I ask You (a.s.) of the goodness in all of my affairs, and I seek Refuge with You from disgrace of the world and the Punishment of the Hereafter’ – Allah would Suffice him what worries from the matters of his world and his Hereafter’.




عنه، عن الحسن بن محبوب، عن معاوية بن عمار، قال: قال أبو عبد الله (ع): إذا خرجت من منزلك، فقل: " بسم الله، توكلت على الله، ولا حول ولا قوة إلا بالله، اللهم إنى أسألك خير ما خرجت له، وأعوذ بك من شر ما خرجت له، اللهم أوسع على من فضلك، وأتمم على نعمتك، واستعملني في طاعتك، واجعل رغبتي فيما عندك، وتوفنى على ملتك وملة رسول الله صلى الله عليه وآله ".


10. From him, from Al Hassan Bin Mahboub, from Muawiya Bin Amaar who said, ‘Abu Abdullah (a.s.) said: ‘When you go out from your house, so say, ‘In the Name of Allah . I rely upon Allah , and there is no Might or Strength except by Allah . I ask You for goodness of what I go out for, and I seek Refuge with You from the evil of what I go out for. O Allah ! Expand Your Grace upon me, and complete Your Favours upon me, and Utilise me in Your obedience, and Make me with for what is in Your Presence, and Incline me towards Your Religion and the Religion of Rasool-Allah (saww)’.




عنه، عن محمد بن على، عن محمد بن سنان، عن أبى الحسن الرضا (ع) قال: كان أبى يقول إذا خرج من منزلة: " بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم، خرجت بحول الله وقوته، لا بحول منى ولا قوة، بل بحولك وقوتك يا رب متعرضا لرزقي فأتني به في عافية. "


11. From him, from Muhammad Bin Ali, from Muhammad Bin Sinan, Abu Al-Hassan Al-Ridha (a.s.) has said: ‘My (a.s.) father (a.s.) used to say when going out from the house: ‘In the Name of Allah , the Beneficent, the Merciful. I (a.s.) go out by the Might of Allah and His Strength, not by my (a.s.) might nor by my (a.s.) strength, but by Your Might and Your Strength, O Lord . Bring to me my (a.s.) sustenance, and Give me (a.s.) by it good health’.
