Hadith #1

حدثنا أحمد بن الحسن القطان، قال: حدثنا أحمد بن يحيى بن زكريا القطان قال: حدثنا بكر بن عبد الله بن حبيب، قال: حدثنا تميم بن بهلول، عن أبيه، عن عبد الله ابن الفضل الهاشمي، قال: قلت لأبي عبد الله عليه السلام: إن علي دينا كثيرا ولي عيال ولا أقدر على الحج فعلمني دعاء أدعو به. فقال: قل في دبر كل صلاة مكتوبة: " اللهم صل على محمد وآل محمد واقض عني دين الدنيا ودين الآخرة ". فقلت له: أما دين الدنيا فقد عرفته، فما دين الآخرة؟ فقال: دين الآخرة الحج.

1. We were told by Ahmad bin Hasan al-Qattan, that he said: We were told by Ahmad bin Yahya bin Zakariya al-Qattan, that he said: We were told by Bikr bin Abdullah bin Habib, that he said: We were told by Tamim bin Buhloul, from his father, from Abdullah ibn Fadl al-Hashimi, that he said: I said to Abu Abdillah, peace be upon him: Indeed, upon me is much debt, and I have children and am not able to perform the pilgrimage, so teach me a prayer that I pray with. So he said: Say at the end of every prescribed prayer: «O Allah, send Your blessings upon Muhammed and the Family of Muhammed, and clear me of the debt of this world and the debt of the Hereafter». Then I said to him: As for the debt of this world, I have known it, so what is the debt of the Hereafter? He said: The debt of the Hereafter is pilgrimage.
