1. Ali ibn Ibrahim has narrated from his father from ibn abu ‘Umayr from abu Ayyub al-Khazzaz from abu Hamza who has said the following: “Once I saw abu ‘Abd Allah (a.s.) moving his lips when he wanted to go out of his house while standing at the door. I said, ‘I saw you at the door moving your lips when coming out, did you say something?’ The Imam said, ‘Yes, when a man is leaving his home he should say, “Allah is greater than can be described, [three times], by the help of Allah I come out and by the help of Allah I enter and in Allah I place my trust, [three times]. O Lord, open to me this with goodness and finish it with goodness, protect me against the evil of every moving thing on earth that You keep in Your control. My Lord is on the right path,” he will continue to be under the protection of Allah, the Most Majestic, the Most Holy, until He brings him back to the place where he was before.’” Muhammad ibn Yahya has narrated from Ahmad ibn Muhammad ibn ‘Isa from Ali ibn al-Hakam from abu Ayyub from abu Hamza has narrated a similar Hadith.




2ـ مُحَمَّدُ بْنُ يَحْيَى عَنْ أَحْمَدَ بْنِ مُحَمَّدِ بْنِ عِيسَى عَنْ عَلِيِّ بْنِ الْحَكَمِ عَنْ مَالِكِ بْنِ عَطِيَّةَ عَنْ أَبِي حَمْزَةَ الثُّمَالِيِّ قَالَ أَتَيْتُ بَابَ عَلِيِّ بْنِ الْحُسَيْنِ (عَلَيهِما السَّلام) فَوَافَقْتُهُ حِينَ خَرَجَ مِنَ الْبَابِ فَقَالَ بِسْمِ الله آمَنْتُ بِالله وَتَوَكَّلْتُ عَلَى الله ثُمَّ قَالَ يَا أَبَا حَمْزَةَ إِنَّ الْعَبْدَ إِذَا خَرَجَ مِنْ مَنْزِلِهِ عَرَضَ لَهُ الشَّيْطَانُ فَإِذَا قَالَ بِسْمِ الله قَالَ الْمَلَكَانِ كُفِيتَ فَإِذَا قَالَ آمَنْتُ بِالله قَالا هُدِيتَ فَإِذَا قَالَ تَوَكَّلْتُ عَلَى الله قَالا وُقِيتَ فَيَتَنَحَّى الشَّيْطَانُ فَيَقُولُ بَعْضُهُمْ لِبَعْضٍ كَيْفَ لَنَا بِمَنْ هُدِيَ وَكُفِيَ وَوُقِيَ قَالَ ثُمَّ قَالَ اللهمَّ إِنَّ عِرْضِي لَكَ الْيَوْمَ ثُمَّ قَالَ يَا أَبَا حَمْزَةَ إِنْ تَرَكْتَ النَّاسَ لَمْ يَتْرُكُوكَ وَإِنْ رَفَضْتَهُمْ لَمْ يَرْفُضُوكَ قُلْتُ فَمَا أَصْنَعُ قَالَ أَعْطِهِمْ مِنْ عِرْضِكَ لِيَوْمِ فَقْرِكَ وَفَاقَتِكَ.


2. Muhammad ibn Yahya has narrated from Ahmad ibn Muhammad ibn ‘Isa from Ali ibn al-Hakam from Malik ibn ‘Atiyyah from abu Hamza al-Thumali who has said the following: “Once I went to see Ali ibn al-Husayn (a.s.) and met him at the door when he was coming out saying, ‘In the name of Allah, I believe in Allah, and I place my trust in Allah,’ he then said, ‘O abu Hamza, when a servant (of Allah) comes out of his door a Satan stands on his way, when he says, “In the name of Allah,” two angels will say, ‘That is enough for you,’ when he says, “I believe in Allah,” they will say, ‘You have found guidance,’ when he says, “I place my trust in Allah,” they will say, ‘You are protected.’ Satan then moves away and say to others, ‘What can we do to one who is guided, sufficed and protected?’ The narrator has said that then the Imam said, ‘O Lord, my dignity is in Your hand today,’ then he said, ‘O abu Hamza, if you leave the people alone they will not leave you alone, if you reject them they will not reject you.’ I then asked, ‘What should I do then?’ The Imam said, ‘Give them of your honor just to receive help on the day when you will need help very badly.’”

3. A number of our people have narrated from Ahmad ibn Muhammad from ‘Uthman ibn ‘Isa from abu Hamza who has said the following: “Once I asked permission to see abu Ja’far (a.s.) and he came out while his lips were moving. I then asked him about it and he said, ‘Did you, O al-Thumali, notice it?’ I said, ‘Yes, may Allah keep my soul in service for your cause, I did.’ The Imam said, ‘By Allah, I spoke the words that no one before had ever spoken, but that Allah had sufficed him in things important to him of worldly matters or of hereafter.’ I (the narrator) then said, ‘Please tell me about it.’ The Imam said, ‘Whoever when coming out of his house says, “In the name of Allah, enough for me is Allah, I place my trust in Allah. O Lord, I ask You to grant me all good in my affairs. I seek protection with You against the humiliation in this world and of torment in the next life,” Allah will suffice him in all that is important to him of worldly or of hereafter.’”

4. It is narrated from him (narrator of the Hadith above) from Ali ibn al-Hakam from ‘Asim ibn Hamid from abu Basir from abu Ja’far (a.s.) who has said the following: “Whoever says, when coming out of his door, ‘I seek protection with that by which the angels of Allah seek protection, against the evil of this new day which when it is its sunset it will not come back, I seek protection against the evil of my soul and the evil of the others, I seek protection against Satan and those who are against the friends of Allah, I seek protection against the evil of Jinn, human beings, the beast and the reptiles and against the evil of involvement in all of the unlawful matters and I place myself under the protection of Allah against all evil,’ Allah will forgive him, accept his repentance, suffice him in what is important to him. He will be safeguarded against evil and protected from misfortunes.”

O Lord, make this day a blessing for me, grant me success, victory, support, cleanliness, guidance, its blessings, and divert away from me its evil, and the evil of that which is in it. In the name of Allah, with the help of Allah, Allah is greater than can be described; all praise belongs to Allah, Lord of the worlds. O Lord, I have come out, make my exit a blessing and benefit me thereby. ’ The narrator has said that on entering his house also he would say this.”
