1. A number of our people have narrated from Ahmad ibn abu ‘Abd Allah from ‘Amr ibn ‘Uthman from Ali ibn Khalid from those whom he has mentioned who has said the following: “Abu Ja’far, ‘Alayhi al-Salam, has said, ‘My father would say, ‘One who enters al-Ka‘bah does so while Allah is happy with him and comes out while his sins are suspended.’”

2. Muhammad ibn Yahya has narrated from Muhammad ibn Ahmad from Ya’qub ibn Yazid from ibn Faddal from ibn al-Qaddah who has said the following: “Ja’far, ‘Alayhi al-Salam, has said, ‘I asked my father, ‘Alayhi al-Salam, about entering al-Ka‘bah. He said, ‘Entering al-Ka‘bah is entering in the mercy of Allah. Coming out of al-Ka‘bah is coming out of sins, and protection in the rest of one’s life and his past sins forgiven.’”

3. Ali ibn Ibrahim has narrated from his father from ibn abu ‘Umayr and Muhammad ibn Isma’il from al-Fadl ibn Shadhan from Safwan and ibn abu ‘Umayr from Mu‘awiyah ibn ‘Ammar who has said the following: “Abu ‘Abd Allah, ‘Alayhi al-Salam, has said that when you decide to enter al-Ka‘bah, take a shower before entering and do not enter with shoes. When you are inside say, ‘O Allah, You have said, “Those who enter it have immunity,” thus, grant me protection against the torment of the fire.’ Thereafter perform two Rak‘at salat (prayer) between the two pillars on the red marble. In the first Rak‘at read Ha Mim al-Sajdah and in the second Rak‘at read an equal number of verses to this Chapter from the Holy Quran. Perform salat (prayer) in the corners and say, ‘O Allah, people become ready, supply themselves, prepare, organize and plan to meet a creature in the hope to receive kindness, reward, favors and extra generosity. I however, my Master, have made ready, supplied myself, organized, and planned in the hope to receive Your kindness, favors and rewards. Do not allow my hopes to fail. You are the One who does not allow the hopes of those who ask help to fail. You are the One whose favors do not diminish. I have not come to You today with good deeds that I may have done. I do not have any hope in any creature to intercede for me before You. However, I have come to You with my confession to my injustice that I have done to myself and wickedness that I have committed against myself. I have no argument or good reason. I appeal before You, O the One who has such a position to grant my wishes, straighten my slips and accept me with my interests and do not turn me back, rejected, denied and failed. O Great, O Great, O Great, I have this great hope. I appeal before You, O Great, to forgive my great sins. No one other than You deserves worship.’ He (the Imam) said, ‘You must not enter with shoes, you must not spit in it or drop mucus. The Messenger of Allah, O Allah, grant compensation to Muhammad and his family worthy of their services to Your cause, entered only once on the day of victory.’”

Go to the pillar next to the Black Stone, place your chest against it and say, “O the One, the Only One, O Glorious, O Near, O Far, O Majestic, O Wise, do not leave me alone. You are the best heir. Grant me virtuous children; You listen to appeals.” Go around the pillar, place your back, belly against it, and say the prayer mentioned above again. If Allah wills something, it happens/”
