1. A number of our people have narrated from Ahmad ibn abu ‘Abd Allah from al-Hassan ibn Yusuf from Zakariya’ al-Mu’min from Ali ibn Maymun al-Sa‘igh who has said the following: “Once a man came to see Ali ibn al-Husayn, ‘Alayhi al-Salam, and he (the Imam) asked him, ’Have you come to perform al-Hajj?’ He replied, ‘Yes, I intend to do so. 5 He (the Imam) asked, ‘Do you know what the reward for al-Hajj is?’ He replied, ‘No, I do not know.’ He (the Imam) said, ‘For one who comes to perform al-Hajj, walks seven times around the House, performs two Rak‘at salat (prayer), Allah writes seventy thousand good deeds. He deletes seventy thousand of his sinful deeds, raises for him seventy thousand degrees, accepts his intercession for seventy thousand wishes, and writes for him the reward for setting free seventy thousand slaves, each worth ten thousand dirhams.”’

2ـ عَلِيُّ بْنُ إِبْرَاهِيمَ عَنْ أَبِيهِ عَنْ حَمَّادِ بْنِ عِيسَى عَنْ إِبْرَاهِيمَ بْنِ عُمَرَ الْيَمَانِيِّ عَنْ إِسْحَاقَ بْنِ عَمَّارٍ عَنْ أَبِي عَبْدِ الله (عَلَيْهِ السَّلاَم) قَالَ كَانَ أَبِي يَقُولُ مَنْ طَافَ بِهَذَا الْبَيْتِ أُسْبُوعاً وَصَلَّى رَكْعَتَيْنِ فِي أَيِّ جَوَانِبِ الْمَسْجِدِ شَاءَ كَتَبَ الله لَهُ سِتَّةَ آلافِ حَسَنَةٍ وَمَحَا عَنْهُ سِتَّةَ آلافِ سَيِّئَةٍ وَرَفَعَ لَهُ سِتَّةَ آلافِ دَرَجَةٍ وَقَضَى لَهُ سِتَّةَ آلافِ حَاجَةٍ فَمَا عَجَّلَ مِنْهَا فَبِرَحْمَةِ الله وَمَا أَخَّرَ مِنْهَا فَشَوْقاً إِلَى دُعَائِهِ.


2. Ali ibn Ibrahim has narrated from his father from Hammad ibn ‘Isa from Ibrahim ibn ‘Umar al-Yemaniy from Ishaq ibn ‘Ammar who has said the following: “Abu ‘Abd Allah, ‘Alayhi al-Salam, has said that my father would say, ‘For one who performs Tawaf around this House seven times and performs two Rak‘at salat (prayer), anywhere in the Masjid al- Haram (the Sacred Masjid), Allah writes for him six thousand good deeds. He deletes six thousand of his sinful deeds, raises for him six thousand degrees and makes his six thousand wishes to come true, of which those earlier are due to Allah’s kindness and those delayed are due to the desire to listen to his prayers.’”

3ـ عَلِيُّ بْنُ إِبْرَاهِيمَ عَنْ أَبِيهِ عَنْ حَمَّادِ بْنِ عِيسَى عَمَّنْ أَخْبَرَهُ عَنِ الْعَبْدِ الصَّالِحِ (عَلَيْهِ السَّلاَم) قَالَ دَخَلْتُ عَلَيْهِ وَأَنَا أُرِيدُ أَنْ أَسْأَلَهُ عَنْ مَسَائِلَ كَثِيرَةٍ فَلَمَّا رَأَيْتُهُ عَظُمَ عَلَيَّ كَلامُهُ فَقُلْتُ لَهُ نَاوِلْنِي يَدَكَ أَوْ رِجْلَكَ أُقَبِّلُهَا فَنَاوَلَنِي يَدَهُ فَقَبَّلْتُهَا فَذَكَرْتُ قَوْلَ رَسُولِ الله (صلَّى اللهُ عَلَيْهِ وَآلِه) فَدَمَعَتْ عَيْنَايَ فَلَمَّا رَآنِي مُطَأْطِئاً رَأْسِي قَالَ قَالَ رَسُولُ الله (صلَّى اللهُ عَلَيْهِ وَآلِه) مَا مِنْ طَائِفٍ يَطُوفُ بِهَذَا الْبَيْتِ حِينَ تَزُولُ الشَّمْسُ حَاسِراً عَنْ رَأْسِهِ حَافِياً يُقَارِبُ بَيْنَ خُطَاهُ وَيَغُضُّ بَصَرَهُ وَيَسْتَلِمُ الْحَجَرَ فِي كُلِّ طَوَافٍ مِنْ غَيْرِ أَنْ يُؤْذِيَ أَحَداً وَلا يَقْطَعُ ذِكْرَ الله عَزَّ وَجَلَّ عَنْ لِسَانِهِ إِلاَّ كَتَبَ الله عَزَّ وَجَلَّ لَهُ بِكُلِّ خُطْوَةٍ سَبْعِينَ أَلْفَ حَسَنَةٍ وَمَحَا عَنْهُ سَبْعِينَ أَلْفَ سَيِّئَةٍ وَرَفَعَ لَهُ سَبْعِينَ أَلْفَ دَرَجَةٍ وَأَعْتَقَ عَنْهُ سَبْعِينَ أَلْفَ رَقَبَةٍ ثَمَنُ كُلِّ رَقَبَةٍ عَشَرَةُ آلافِ دِرْهَمٍ وَشُفِّعَ فِي سَبْعِينَ مِنْ أَهْلِ بَيْتِهِ وَقُضِيَتْ لَهُ سَبْعُونَ أَلْفَ حَاجَةٍ إِنْ شَاءَ فَعَاجِلَهُ وَإِنْ شَاءَ فَآجِلَهُ.


3. Ali ibn Ibrahim has narrated from his father from Hammad ibn ‘Isa from those who he has mentioned as having said the following: “I once visited the virtuous servant of Allah to ask him a great many questions. When I saw him, his words impressed me a great deal. I requested him to allow me to hold his hand or his foot to kiss. He allowed me to hold his hand, I kissed his hand and at this time I remembered the words of the Messenger of Allah, O Allah, grant compensation to Muhammad and his family worthy of their services to Your cause, and my eyes flooded with tears. When he saw me bending my head down, he said that the Messenger of Allah, O Allah, grant compensation to Muhammad and his family worthy of their services to Your cause, has spoken of the following great facts: ‘Allah, the Most Majestic, the Most Glorious, writes for each step seventy thousand good deeds for those who perform Tawaf around this House. If one performs it when the sun declines toward the west, without any covering on his head, barefoot, walking in small steps, casting one’s eyes down, touching the Black Stone each time one passes by without disappointing anyone, and does not discontinue speaking of Allah, the Most Majestic, the Most Glorious, He deletes seventy thousand of his sinful deeds, raises seventy thousand degrees, sets free seventy thousand slaves on his behalf, each costing ten thousand dirhams, accepts his intercession for seventy people of his family, and makes seventy thousand of his wishes to come true early, if He so wishes or later if He so wishes.’”
