1ـ مُحَمَّدُ بْنُ يَحْيَى وَغَيْرُهُ عَنْ مُحَمَّدِ بْنِ أَحْمَدَ عَنْ مُحَمَّدِ بْنِ عِيسَى عَنْ يَاسِينَ الضَّرِيرِ عَنْ حَرِيزِ بْنِ عَبْدِ الله عَنْ مُحَمَّدِ بْنِ مُسْلِمٍ قَالَ سَأَلْتُهُ عَنْ حَدِّ الطَّوَافِ بِالْبَيْتِ الَّذِي مَنْ خَرَجَ مِنْهُ لَمْ يَكُنْ طَائِفاً بِالْبَيْتِ قَالَ كَانَ النَّاسُ عَلَى عَهْدِ رَسُولِ الله (صلَّى اللهُ عَلَيْهِ وَآلِه) يَطُوفُونَ بِالْبَيْتِ وَالْمَقَامِ وَأَنْتُمُ الْيَوْمَ تَطُوفُونَ مَا بَيْنَ الْمَقَامِ وَبَيْنَ الْبَيْتِ فَكَانَ الْحَدُّ مَوْضِعَ الْمَقَامِ الْيَوْمَ فَمَنْ جَازَهُ فَلَيْسَ بِطَائِفٍ وَالْحَدُّ قَبْلَ الْيَوْمِ وَالْيَوْمَ وَاحِدٌ قَدْرَ مَا بَيْنَ الْمَقَامِ وَبَيْنَ الْبَيْتِ مِنْ نَوَاحِي الْبَيْتِ كُلِّهَا فَمَنْ طَافَ فَتَبَاعَدَ مِنْ نَوَاحِيهِ أَبْعَدَ مِنْ مِقْدَارِ ذَلِكَ كَانَ طَائِفاً بِغَيْرِ الْبَيْتِ بِمَنْزِلَةِ مَنْ طَافَ بِالْمَسْجِدِ لأَنَّهُ طَافَ فِي غَيْرِ حَدٍّ وَلا طَوَافَ لَهُ.


1. Muhammad ibn Yahya and others have narrated from Muhammad ibn Ahmad from Muhammad ibn ‘Isa from Yasin al-Darir from Hariz ibn ‘ Abd Allah from Muhammad ibn Muslim who has said the following: “I once asked abu ‘Abd Allah, ‘Alayhi al-Salam, about the limits of the area for Tawaf around the House and the point beyond which Tawaf is not considered as Tawaf around the House. He (the Imam) said, ‘During the time of the Messenger of Allah, O Allah, grant compensation to Muhammad and his family worthy of their services to Your cause, people performed Tawaf around the House and Maqam (station) of Ibrahim ‘Alayhi al-Salam (the station was attached to the House). Today you perform Tawaf between the House and Maqam (station) of Ibrahim ‘Alayhi al-Salam. Today the limit is Maqam (station) of Ibrahim ‘Alayhi al-Salam. Whoever goes beyond it is not doing Tawaf. The limit today and before is one, that is, between the House and Maqam (station) of Ibrahim ‘Alayhi al-Salam, all around the House. If one performs Tawaf and goes beyond the area which is away from the House more than Maqam (station) of Ibrahim ‘Alayhi al-Salam is, he is not doing Tawaf around the House; he has performed Tawaf around something which is other than the House which, is like performing Tawaf around the Masjid. It is because he has performed Tawaf in something which is beyond the limit and his Tawaf is not valid/”
