1ـ عَلِيُّ بْنُ إِبْرَاهِيمَ عَنْ أَبِيهِ عَنِ ابْنِ أَبِي عُمَيْرٍ وَمُحَمَّدُ بْنُ إِسْمَاعِيلَ عَنِ الْفَضْلِ بْنِ شَاذَانَ عَنْ صَفْوَانَ بْنِ يَحْيَى وَابْنِ أَبِي عُمَيْرٍ عَنْ مُعَاوِيَةَ بْنِ عَمَّارٍ عَنْ أَبِي عَبْدِ الله (عَلَيْهِ السَّلاَم) قَالَ إِذَا فَرَغْتَ مِنَ الرَّكْعَتَيْنِ فَائْتِ الْحَجَرَ الأَسْوَدَ وَقَبِّلْهُ وَاسْتَلِمْهُ أَوْ أَشِرْ إِلَيْهِ فَإِنَّهُ لا بُدَّ مِنْ ذَلِكَ وَقَالَ إِنْ قَدَرْتَ أَنْ تَشْرَبَ مِنْ مَاءِ زَمْزَمَ قَبْلَ أَنْ تَخْرُجَ إِلَى الصَّفَا فَافْعَلْ وَتَقُولُ حِينَ تَشْرَبُ اللهمَّ اجْعَلْهُ عِلْماً نَافِعاً وَرِزْقاً وَاسِعاً وَشِفَاءً مِنْ كُلِّ دَاءٍ وَسُقْمٍ قَالَ وَبَلَغَنَا أَنَّ رَسُولَ الله (صلَّى اللهُ عَلَيْهِ وَآلِه) قَالَ حِينَ نَظَرَ إِلَى زَمْزَمَ لَوْ لا أَنِّي أَشُقُّ عَلَى أُمَّتِي لأَخَذْتُ مِنْهُ ذَنُوباً أَوْ ذَنُوبَيْنِ.


1. Ali ibn Ibrahim has narrated from his father from ibn abu ‘Umayr and Muhammad ibn Isma‘il from al-Fadl ibn Shadhan from Safwan ibn Yahya and ibn abu ‘Umayr from Mu‘awiyah ibn ‘Ammar who has said the following: “Abu ‘Abd Allah, ‘Alayhi al-Salam, has said that after performing two Rak‘at salat (prayer) you should go to the Black Stone, kiss, touch it and point toward it; it should be done.’ He (the Imam) said, ‘If you can drink from Zamzam before leaving for al-Safa’, it is better, and when drinking say, ‘O Allah, make it useful knowledge, abundant sustenance and a cure for all illnesses and deficiencies.’ He (the Imam) said, ‘It has come to us that the Messenger of Allah, O Allah, grant compensation to Muhammad and his family worthy of their services to Your cause, when looking at Zamzam, said, ‘Were I not to cause difficulties for my followers, I would have taken one or two containers full of water of Zamzam.’”

Ali ibn Ibrahim has narrated from his father from ibn abu ‘Umayr from Hammad from al-Halabiy who has said the following: “Abu ‘Abd Allah, ‘Alayhi al-Salam, has said that when a man completes Tawaf and the two Rak‘at salat (prayer), he should go to Zamzam. He should take one or two containers full of water, drink, pour on his head, back and belly and say, ‘O Allah, make it useful knowledge, abundant sustenance and a cure for all illnesses and deficiencies,’ and then go back to the Black Stone.’”

3ـ مُحَمَّدُ بْنُ يَحْيَى عَنْ أَحْمَدَ بْنِ مُحَمَّدٍ عَنْ عَلِيِّ بْنِ مَهْزِيَارَ قَالَ رَأَيْتُ أَبَا جَعْفَرٍ الثَّانِيَ (عَلَيْهِ السَّلاَم) لَيْلَةَ الزِّيَارَةِ طَافَ طَوَافَ النِّسَاءِ وَصَلَّى خَلْفَ الْمَقَامِ ثُمَّ دَخَلَ زَمْزَمَ فَاسْتَقَى مِنْهَا بِيَدِهِ بِالدَّلْوِ الَّذِي يَلِي الْحَجَرَ وَشَرِبَ مِنْهُ وَصَبَّ عَلَى بَعْضِ جَسَدِهِ ثُمَّ اطَّلَعَ فِي زَمْزَمَ مَرَّتَيْنِ وَأَخْبَرَنِي بَعْضُ أَصْحَابِنَا أَنَّهُ رَآهُ بَعْدَ ذَلِكَ بِسَنَةٍ فَعَلَ مِثْلَ ذَلِكَ.


3. Muhammad ibn Yahya has narrated from Ahmad ibn Muhammad from Ali ibn Mahziyar from who has said the following: “I once saw abu Ja‘far, the 2nd, ‘Alayhi al-Salam, in the night of Ziyarat perform Tawaf al-Nisa’. He (the Imam) performed Salat (prayer) behind Maqam (station) of Ibrahim ‘Alayhi al-Salam, then went in Zamzam, took water with his hand with the bucket which is next to al-Hajar, drank from it and poured on certain parts of his body. He (the Imam) then looked into Zamzam twice. Certain persons of our people have narrated to me that they had seen him next year doing the same way.” (Fatwa best explains the rest of the above Chapter)
