1ـ عَلِيُّ بْنُ إِبْرَاهِيمَ عَنْ أَبِيهِ وَمُحَمَّدُ بْنُ إِسْمَاعِيلَ عَنِ الْفَضْلِ بْنِ شَاذَانَ جَمِيعاً عَنْ صَفْوَانَ بْنِ يَحْيَى وَابْنِ أَبِي عُمَيْرٍ عَنْ مُعَاوِيَةَ بْنِ عَمَّارٍ عَنْ أَبِي عَبْدِ الله (عَلَيْهِ السَّلاَم) قَالَ إِذَا دَخَلْتَ الْمَسْجِدَ الْحَرَامَ فَادْخُلْهُ حَافِياً عَلَى السَّكِينَةِ وَالْوَقَارِ وَالْخُشُوعِ وَقَالَ وَمَنْ دَخَلَهُ بِخُشُوعٍ غَفَرَ الله لَهُ إِنْ شَاءَ الله قُلْتُ مَا الْخُشُوعُ قَالَ السَّكِينَةُ لا تَدْخُلْهُ بِتَكَبُّرٍ فَإِذَا انْتَهَيْتَ إِلَى بَابِ الْمَسْجِدِ فَقُمْ وَقُلِ السَّلامُ عَلَيْكَ أَيُّهَا النَّبِيُّ وَرَحْمَةُ الله وَبَرَكَاتُهُ بِسْمِ الله وَبِالله وَمِنَ الله وَمَا شَاءَ الله وَالسَّلامُ عَلَى أَنْبِيَاءِ الله وَرُسُلِهِ وَالسَّلامُ عَلَى رَسُولِ الله وَالسَّلامُ عَلَى إِبْرَاهِيمَ وَالْحَمْدُ لله رَبِّ الْعَالَمِينَ فَإِذَا دَخَلْتَ الْمَسْجِدَ فَارْفَعْ يَدَيْكَ وَاسْتَقْبِلِ الْبَيْتَ وَقُلِ اللهمَّ إِنِّي أَسْأَلُكَ فِي مَقَامِي هَذَا فِي أَوَّلِ مَنَاسِكِي أَنْ تَقْبَلَ تَوْبَتِي وَأَنْ تَجَاوَزَ عَنْ خَطِيئَتِي وَتَضَعَ عَنِّي وِزْرِي الْحَمْدُ لله الَّذِي بَلَّغَنِي بَيْتَهُ الْحَرَامَ اللهمَّ إِنِّي أَشْهَدُ أَنَّ هَذَا بَيْتُكَ الْحَرَامُ الَّذِي جَعَلْتَهُ مَثَابَةً لِلنَّاسِ وَأَمْناً مُبَارَكاً وَهُدًى لِلْعَالَمِينَ اللهمَّ إِنِّي عَبْدُكَ وَالْبَلَدُ بَلَدُكَ وَالْبَيْتُ بَيْتُكَ جِئْتُ أَطْلُبُ رَحْمَتَكَ وَأَؤُمُّ طَاعَتَكَ مُطِيعاً لأَمْرِكَ رَاضِياً بِقَدَرِكَ أَسْأَلُكَ مَسْأَلَةَ الْمُضْطَرِّ إِلَيْكَ الْخَائِفِ لِعُقُوبَتِكَ اللهمَّ افْتَحْ لِي أَبْوَابَ رَحْمَتِكَ وَاسْتَعْمِلْنِي بِطَاعَتِكَ وَمَرْضَاتِكَ.


1. Ali ibn Ibrahim has narrated from his father and Muhammad ibn Isma‘il from af-Fadf ibn Shadhan all from Safwan ibn Yahya and ibn abu ‘Umayr from Mu‘awiyah ibn ‘Ammar who has said the following: “Abu ‘ Abd Allah, ‘Alayhi al-Salam, has said that when you enter Masjid al-Haram (the Sacred Masjid), you should be barefoot, in a dignified, serene and humble manner.’ He (the Imam) said, ’One who enters in a humble manner, Allah forgives his sins by His will.’ I (the narrator) then asked, ’What is al-Khushu’ (humbleness)?’ He (the Imam) replied, ‘It is al-Sakinah (a dignified manner). You must not enter with arrogance. When you reach the door of al-Masjid, stand up and say, “O Holy Prophet, you deserve peace, Allah’s kindness and blessings. (I commence) with the help of the name of Allah, with Allah, from Allah and with whatever Allah wishes. Peace and safety is due in favor of the prophets of Allah and His messengers. Peace and submission is due in favor of the Messenger of Allah and Ibrahim. All praise belongs to Allah, Lord of the worlds.” When you enter al-Masjid, raise your hands, face the House and say, “O Allah, I appeal before You, in this place where I am at the beginning of the acts of my Hajj, to accept my repentance, ignore my mistakes, and remove my burdens of sins. All thanks and praise belong to Allah for taking me to His Sacred House. O Allah, I testify that this is Your Sacred House, which You have made a place for people to earn rewards, a sanctuary, a blessed (House) and guidance for the worlds. O Allah, I am your servant, this town is Your town and this house is your House. I have come to seek Your kindness with the intention to obey You, submitted to your command and I agree with your measures. I appeal before You like a helpless person before You who is afraid of Your punishment. O Allah, open for me the doors to Your kindness and mercy and make me work in obedience to You and according to Your pleasure.’””

2. Abu Basir has narrated who has said the following: “Abu ‘Abd Allah, ‘Alayhi al-Salam, has said that you should say this when you are at the door of Masjid al-Haram (the Sacred Masjid). ‘(I begin) with the help of the name of Allah, with Allah, from Allah, with whatever Allah wishes and according to the religion of the Messenger of Allah, and that the best names belong to Allah and that all praise belongs to Allah. “Peace, obedience and submission to commandments are due in favor of the Messenger of Allah, O Allah, grant compensation to Muhammad and his family worthy of their services to Your cause. Peace, obedience and submission to commandments are due in favor of Muhammad ibn ‘Abd Allah, O Allah, grant compensation to Muhammad and his family worthy of their services to Your cause. Peace, obedience and submission to commandments are due in Your favor of you, O Holy Prophet, along with His mercy and blessings. Peace and blessings is due in favor of the prophets of Allah and His messengers. Peace and blessings are due in favor of Ibrahim, the friend of the Beneficent. Peace and blessings are due in favor of all messengers and all praise belongs to Allah, Lord of the worlds. May Allah grant us and the virtuous servants of Allah peace and blessings. O Allah, grant salawat (favors and compensation to Muhammad and his family worthy of their services to Your cause); grant blessings up on Muhammad and the family of Muhammad; grant mercy up on Muhammad and the family of Muhammad as You have granted favors, blessings and mercy up on Ibrahim and the family of Ibrahim. You are praiseworthy and glorious. O Allah, grant salawat (favors and compensation to Muhammad and his family worthy of their services to Your cause) to Your servant, Your Messenger, and grant favors up on Ibrahim, Your friend, and on Your prophets, Your messengers; grant them peace and to the messengers. All praise belongs to Allah, Lord of the worlds. “O Allah, open for me the doors to Your kindness, make me to work in obedience to Your commandments and in accordance with Your pleasure. O Allah, protect me with the protection of belief as long as You keep me living. Glorious is praise of Your face. All praise belongs to Allah who has made me one of His delegates, visitors and has made me of those who build His Masjids and one of those who speak to Him. O Allah, I am Your servant, Your visitor in Your House. Every visitor has rights before the one whom he visits and You are the best of visited ones and the most honorable host. I appeal before You O Allah, O Beneficent, You are Allah, beside whom no one deserves worship. You alone deserve worship without partners. You are One, the only one and self-sufficient, who is not born and does not give birth to any one and there is no one like Him. Muhammad is Your servant, Your Messenger. O Allah, grant salawat (favors and compensation to Muhammad and his family worthy of their services to Your cause), O (Allah You are) generous, honorable, glorious, dominant and honorable one. I appeal before You to make my reward for visiting You the first to set my neck free from hellfire. O Allah, set my neck free from hellfire’- saying it three times - ‘and expand for me my sustenance of the lawful and pure. Keep away from me the wickedness of Satans of mankind and Jinn, and the evil of the sinful all Arab and non- Arab people.’”
