1. Muhammad ibn Yahya has narrated from Ahmad ibn Muhammad from Muhammad ibn ‘Isma‘il has narrated from al-Fadl ibn Shadhan from al-Rabi‘ ibn Khuthaym who has said the following: “I saw abu ‘ Abd Allah, ‘Alayhi al-Salam, being carried for Tawaf around al-Ka‘bah in a carriage and he was seriously ill. Whenever he would reach al-Yemaniy corner he commanded to place him on the ground, and he would extend his hand from the carriage and pull it on the ground then say, ’Lift me up.’ When he did so many times in every turn of walking around the House, I said, ‘I pray to Allah to keep my soul in service for your cause, O child of the Messenger of Allah, this is difficult for you.’ He (the Imam) said, T heard Allah, most Majestic, most Glorious, say, . . so that they witness the benefits for them.’” (22:28) I then asked, ‘Is it worldly benefits or the hereafter?’ He (the Imam) replied, ‘It is the benefits of both of them.’”
