2ـ عِدَّةٌ مِنْ أَصْحَابِنَا عَنْ سَهْلِ بْنِ زِيَادٍ عَنْ أَحْمَدَ بْنِ مُحَمَّدٍ عَنْ عَلِيِّ بْنِ أَبِي حَمْزَةَ قَالَ سَأَلْتُ أَبَا الْحَسَنِ (عَلَيْهِ السَّلاَم) عَنِ الرَّجُلِ يَطُوفُ يَقْرُنُ بَيْنَ أُسْبُوعَيْنِ فَقَالَ إِنْ شِئْتَ رَوَيْتُ لَكَ عَنْ أَهْلِ مَكَّةَ قَالَ فَقُلْتُ لا وَالله مَا لِي فِي ذَلِكَ مِنْ حَاجَةٍ جُعِلْتُ فِدَاكَ وَلَكِنِ ارْوِ لِي مَا أَدِينُ الله عَزَّ وَجَلَّ بِهِ فَقَالَ لا تَقْرُنْ بَيْنَ أُسْبُوعَيْنِ كُلَّمَا طُفْتَ أُسْبُوعاً فَصَلِّ رَكْعَتَيْنِ وَأَمَّا أَنَا فَرُبَّمَا قَرَنْتُ الثَّلاثَةَ وَالأَرْبَعَةَ فَنَظَرْتُ إِلَيْهِ فَقَالَ إِنِّي مَعَ هَؤُلاءِ.


2. A number of our people have narrated from Sahl ibn Ziyad from Ahmad ibn Muhammad from Ali ibn abu Hamzah who has said the following: “I once asked abu al-Hassan, ‘Alayhi al-Salam, about a man who joins two Tawaf. He (the Imam) said, ‘If you like I can narrate to you from people of Makkah.’ I then said, ‘No, by Allah, I do not need that, I pray to Allah to keep my soul in service for your cause, but narrate to me by which I can worship Allah, most Majestic, most Glorious. He (the Imam) said, ‘Do not join two Tawaf (each of walking seven times around the House). Perform two Rak‘at Salat (prayer) after each Tawaf (of walking seven times around the House). I, however, perform Tawaf and join three and four Tawaf together.’ I then looked at him (the Imam). He (the Imam) said, ‘I am with these people.’”

3. Ahmad ibn Muhammad has narrated from Muhammad ibn Ahmad al-Nahdiy from Muhammad ibn Walid ‘Umar ibn Yazid who has said the following: “I once heard abu ‘Abd Allah, ‘Alayhi al-Salam, say, ‘Joining Tawaf is Makruh (detestable) only in the case of obligatory Tawaf; but in the case of optional Tawaf, by Allah it is not harmful.’”
