1ـ عَلِيُّ بْنُ إِبْرَاهِيمَ عَنْ أَبِيهِ عَنِ ابْنِ أَبِي عُمَيْرٍ وَمُحَمَّدُ بْنُ إِسْمَاعِيلَ عَنِ الْفَضْلِ بْنِ شَاذَانَ عَنِ ابْنِ أَبِي عُمَيْرٍ وَصَفْوَانَ بْنِ يَحْيَى عَنْ مُعَاوِيَةَ بْنِ عَمَّارٍ عَنْ أَبِي عَبْدِ الله (عَلَيْهِ السَّلاَم) قَالَ إِذَا دَنَوْتَ مِنَ الْحَجَرِ الأَسْوَدِ فَارْفَعْ يَدَيْكَ وَاحْمَدِ الله وَأَثْنِ عَلَيْهِ وَصَلِّ عَلَى النَّبِيِّ (صلَّى اللهُ عَلَيْهِ وَآلِه) وَاسْأَلِ الله أَنْ يَتَقَبَّلَ مِنْكَ ثُمَّ اسْتَلِمِ الْحَجَرَ وَقَبِّلْهُ فَإِنْ لَمْ تَسْتَطِعْ أَنْ تُقَبِّلَهُ فَاسْتَلِمْهُ بِيَدِكَ فَإِنْ لَمْ تَسْتَطِعْ أَنْ تَسْتَلِمَهُ بِيَدِكَ فَأَشِرْ إِلَيْهِ وَقُلِ اللهمَّ أَمَانَتِي أَدَّيْتُهَا وَمِيثَاقِي تَعَاهَدْتُهُ لِتَشْهَدَ لِي بِالْمُوَافَاةِ اللهمَّ تَصْدِيقاً بِكِتَابِكَ وَعَلَى سُنَّةِ نَبِيِّكَ أَشْهَدُ أَنْ لا إِلَهَ إِلاَّ الله وَحْدَهُ لا شَرِيكَ لَهُ وَأَنَّ مُحَمَّداً عَبْدُهُ وَرَسُولُهُ آمَنْتُ بِالله وَكَفَرْتُ بِالْجِبْتِ وَالطَّاغُوتِ وَبِاللاَّتِ وَالْعُزَّى وَعِبَادَةِ الشَّيْطَانِ وَعِبَادَةِ كُلِّ نِدٍّ يُدْعَى مِنْ دُونِ الله فَإِنْ لَمْ تَسْتَطِعْ أَنْ تَقُولَ هَذَا كُلَّهُ فَبَعْضَهُ وَقُلِ اللهمَّ إِلَيْكَ بَسَطْتُ يَدِي وَفِيمَا عِنْدَكَ عَظُمَتْ رَغْبَتِي فَاقْبَلْ سَيْحَتِي وَاغْفِرْ لِي وَارْحَمْنِي اللهمَّ إِنِّي أَعُوذُ بِكَ مِنَ الْكُفْرِ وَالْفَقْرِ وَمَوَاقِفِ الْخِزْيِ فِي الدُّنْيَا وَالآخِرَةِ.


1. Ali ibn Ibrahim has narrated from his father from ibn abu ‘Umayr and Muhammad ibn Isma‘il has narrated from al-Fadl ibn Shadhan from ibn abu ‘Umayr and Safwan ibn Yahya has narrated from Mu‘awiyah ibn ‘Ammar who has said the following: “Abu ‘ Abd Allah, ‘Alayhi al-Salam, has said that when you go close to the Black Stone, raise your hands, thank Allah and praise Him and say, ‘O Allah, grant salawat (favors and compensation to Muhammad and his family worthy of their services to Your cause).’ Appeal before Allah to accept (your good deeds). Then touch the Black Stone and kiss it, but if you cannot kiss, touch it with your hand. If you cannot touch it also, then point to it with your hand and say, ‘O Allah, I have returned my trust and (I reaffirm) my covenant that I had undertaken, so bear witness for me to my standing up by my commitment and covenant. O Allah, as verification of Your book and the noble tradition of Your Holy Prophet, I testify that no one other than Allah, who is One and has no partners, deserves worship. I also testify that Muhammad is His servant and messenger. I have believed in the existence of Allah and I have rejected al-Jibt and al-Taghut, al-Lat, al-‘Uzza’, (names of idols) worshipping Satan and worshipping anything considered as similar to Allah.’ If you cannot say all of this, say a part of it. Then say, ‘O Allah, before You I have extended my hands and I have a great interest in what is with You. Accept my journey, forgive me and grant me mercy. O Allah, I seek refuge with You against disbelief, poverty, losing and failure in this life as well as in the next life.’”

2ـ وَفِي رِوَايَةِ أَبِي بَصِيرٍ عَنْ أَبِي عَبْدِ الله (عَلَيْهِ السَّلاَم) قَالَ إِذَا دَخَلْتَ الْمَسْجِدَ الْحَرَامَ فَامْشِ حَتَّى تَدْنُوَ مِنَ الْحَجَرِ الأَسْوَدِ فَتَسْتَقْبِلَهُ وَتَقُولُ الْحَمْدُ لله الَّذِي هَدَانَا لِهَذَا وَمَا كُنَّا لِنَهْتَدِيَ لَوْ لا أَنْ هَدَانَا الله سُبْحَانَ الله وَالْحَمْدُ لله وَلا إِلَهَ إِلاَّ الله وَالله أَكْبَرُ أَكْبَرُ مِنْ خَلْقِهِ وَأَكْبَرُ مِمَّنْ أَخْشَى وَأَحْذَرُ وَلا إِلَهَ إِلاَّ الله وَحْدَهُ لا شَرِيكَ لَهُ لَهُ الْمُلْكُ وَلَهُ الْحَمْدُ يُحْيِي وَيُمِيتُ وَيُمِيتُ وَيُحْيِي بِيَدِهِ الْخَيْرُ وَهُوَ عَلَى كُلِّ شَيْ‏ءٍ قَدِيرٌ وَتُصَلِّي عَلَى النَّبِيِّ وَآلِ النَّبِيِّ صَلَّى الله عَلَيْهِ وَعَلَيْهِمْ وَتُسَلِّمُ عَلَى الْمُرْسَلِينَ كَمَا فَعَلْتَ حِينَ دَخَلْتَ الْمَسْجِدَ ثُمَّ تَقُولُ اللهمَّ إِنِّي أُومِنُ بِوَعْدِكَ وَأُوفِي بِعَهْدِكَ ثُمَّ ذَكَرَ كَمَا ذَكَرَ مُعَاوِيَةُ.


2. According to the narration of abu Basir, abu ‘Abd Allah, ‘Alayhi al-Salam, has said that when you enter Masjid al-Haram (the Sacred Masjid), continue walking until you are near the Black Stone, then turn your face to it and say, ‘All praise belongs to Allah who granted us guidance to this (religion). We could not find guidance if Allah did not grant us guidance. Allah is free of all defects. All praise belongs to Allah; no one deserves worship except Allah and Allah is great beyond description. He is greater than His creatures and greater than the things which I fear and avoid. No one deserves worship except Allah, who is One and has no partners. The kingdom and all praise belong to Him. He gives life and causes things to die. He causes things to die and gives life. In His hand is all-good and He has power over all things.’ Then say, ‘O Allah, grant salawat (favors and compensation to Muhammad and his family worthy of their services to Your cause).’ Then offer greetings of peace to the messengers as had been done when entering Masjid al-Haram (the Sacred Masjid). Then say, ‘O Allah, I believe in Your promise and I stand up by Your covenant.’ Then he (abu Basir) has mentioned what Mu‘awiyah ibn ‘Ammar has mentioned in h 1 above.”

3. Ali ibn Ibrahim has narrated from his father from Hammad ibn ‘Isa from Hariz from those whom he has mentioned who has said the following: “Abu Ja’far, ‘Alayhi al-Salam, has said, ‘When you enter Masjid al-Haram (the Sacred Masjid) and are parallel with the Black Stone, say, “I testify that no one deserves worship except Allah, who is One and has no partners and I testify that Muhammad is His servant and His messenger. I have believed in the existence of Allah, and have rejected al-Taghut, al-Lat, al-‘Uzza’, worshipping Satan and worshipping anything that is considered similar to Allah.’ Then go near the Black Stone, touch it with your right hand and say, ‘In the name of Allah and Allah is great beyond description. O Allah, I have returned my trust and (I reaffirm) my covenant that I had undertaken, so bear witness for me before You to my standing up by my commitment and covenant.’”
