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 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 enter al-Madinah, take a shower before you enter or at that time. Thereafter go to the grave of the Holy Prophet, O Allah, grant compensation to Muhammad and his family worthy of their services to Your cause, stand up and offer Salam to the Messenger of Allah. Then stand up near the pillar, the first one from the right side of the grave near the head of the grave and near the corner of the grave when you are facing al-Qiblah (the direction of Makkah). Keep your left shoulder toward the grave and your right shoulder toward the pulpit, which is the place of the head of the Messenger of Allah, O Allah, grant compensation to Muhammad and his family worthy of their services to Your cause. Thereafter say, ‘I testify that no one except Allah, who is One and only and has no partners, deserves worship. I testify that Muhammad is His servant and His messenger. I testify that you are the Messenger of Allah. I testify that you are Muhammad ibn ’Abd Allah. I testify that you conveyed and preached the messages of your Lord, gave good advice to your followers, strove hard for the cause of Allah, and worshipped Allah sincerely, until the time of your death, with wisdom and good advice. You fulfilled your duty of conveying the truth. You treated believers with compassion and dealt with the unbelievers by means of strength. Allah thus took you to the excellent position of honor of the honorable ones. All praise and thanks belong to Allah who saved us through you from paganism and straying. O Allah, grant salawat (favors and compensation to Muhammad and his family worthy of their services to Your cause) and accept such prayers of angels, of prominent position before You, Your virtuous servant, messenger prophets, inhabitants of heavens and earths and all of those who glorify You. O Lord of the world, accept such prayers of those who lived in the past and those to come into being. Accept such prayers in favor of Muhammad, Your servant, Your messenger, Your prophet, Your trusted one, Your chosen one, Your beloved one, Your selected one, the one very special to You, the purified one, the one who is Your choice from among Your creatures. “O Allah, grant him high position, the means from paradise, raise him to the praiseworthy position which is coveted by those who lived in the past and those who came later on. O Allah, You have said, “If they do injustice to themselves and then come to you, then ask forgiveness from Allah for their sins and the messenger also asks forgiveness from Allah for them; they will find Allah forgiving and merciful. ”(4:64) I have come to Your prophet, begging for forgiveness, repenting for my sins and I through you (the Messenger of Allah) have turned to Allah, my Lord, and your Lord, so He forgives my sins.’ If you have any wishes then keep the grave of the Holy Prophet behind your shoulders, face the direction of Ka’bah, raise your hands and ask for your wishes; you deserve to find your wishes made to come true, if Allah so wills.”

He then liked to keep his back against the brightly green stone, which is next to the grave, stay attached to the grave with his back toward it, facing the direction of Ka’bah, and say, “O Allah, I have sought backing and support from You. I have turned my back for support toward the grave of Muhammad, Your servant and Your messenger, O Allah, grant compensation to Muhammad and his family worthy of their services to Your cause. I have set my back for support and faced the direction, which You chose for Muhammad, O Allah, grant compensation to Muhammad and his family worthy of their services to Your cause. O Allah, I do not possess anything good for myself that I can hope for. I am not able to keep away from my soul any evil and wickedness of which I am afraid. All matters are in Your hands. There is no one poorer than I am. I am in dire need of goodness because of what has come upon me. O Allah, return me back with goodness; no one is able to keep away Your favors. O Allah, I seek protection with You against Your changing my name, my body and removal of Your bounties from me. O Allah, honor me with piety, beautify me with bounties, cover me with good health and grant me the opportunity to thank you for good health.’””
