Back to book

1ـ مُحَمَّدُ بْنُ يَحْيَى عَنْ مُحَمَّدِ بْنِ الْحُسَيْنِ عَنْ عَلِيِّ بْنِ الْحَكَمِ وَصَفْوَانَ عَنِ الْعَلاءِ عَنْ مُحَمَّدِ بْنِ مُسْلِمٍ عَنْ أَبِي جَعْفَرٍ (عَلَيْهِ السَّلاَم) قَالَ لا يَنْبَغِي لِلرَّجُلِ أَنْ يُقِيمَ بِمَكَّةَ سَنَةً قُلْتُ كَيْفَ يَصْنَعُ قَالَ يَتَحَوَّلُ عَنْهَا وَلا يَنْبَغِي لأَحَدٍ أَنْ يَرْفَعَ بِنَاءً فَوْقَ الْكَعْبَةِ. وَرُوِيَ أَنَّ الْمُقَامَ بِمَكَّةَ يُقْسِي الْقُلُوبَ.


1. Muhammad ibn Yahya has narrated from Muhammad ibn al-Husayn from Ali ibn al-Hakam from and Safwan from al-‘Ala’ from Muhammad ibn Muslim who has said the following: “Abu Ja’far, ‘Alayhi al-Salam, has said, ‘It is not proper for a man to stay in Makkah for one year.’ I then asked, ‘What should he do?’ He (the Imam) said, ‘He must move out, and it is not proper for anyone to build anything higher than al-Ka‘bah.’” It is narrated that staying in Makkah hardens (removes good feelings from) one’s heart.

2ـ عَلِيُّ بْنُ إِبْرَاهِيمَ عَنْ أَبِيهِ عَنِ ابْنِ أَبِي عُمَيْرٍ عَمَّنْ ذَكَرَهُ عَنْ ذَرِيحٍ عَنْ أَبِي بَصِيرٍ عَنْ أَبِي عَبْدِ الله (عَلَيْهِ السَّلاَم) قَالَ إِذَا فَرَغْتَ مِنْ نُسُكِكَ فَارْجِعْ فَإِنَّهُ أَشْوَقُ لَكَ إِلَى الرُّجُوعِ.


2. Ali ibn Ibrahim has narrated from his father from ibn abu ‘Umayr from those whom he has mentioned from Dharih from abu Basir who has said the following: “Abu ‘Abd Allah, ‘Alayhi al-Salam, has said, ‘When you complete your nusuk (acts of ‘Umrah and or Hajj) go back; it leaves you with more desire to return to Makkah.’”
