1ـ عَلِيُّ بْنُ إِبْرَاهِيمَ عَنْ أَبِيهِ عَنِ ابْنِ أَبِي عُمَيْرٍ عَنْ مُعَاوِيَةَ بْنِ عَمَّارٍ قَالَ قَالَ أَبُو عَبْدِ الله (عَلَيْهِ السَّلاَم) إِذَا أَرَدْتَ أَنْ تَخْرُجَ مِنَ الْمَدِينَةِ فَاغْتَسِلْ ثُمَّ ائْتِ قَبْرَ النَّبِيِّ (صلَّى اللهُ عَلَيْهِ وَآلِه) بَعْدَ مَا تَفْرُغُ مِنْ حَوَائِجِكَ وَاصْنَعْ مِثْلَ مَا صَنَعْتَ عِنْدَ دُخُولِكَ وَقُلِ اللهمَّ لا تَجْعَلْهُ آخِرَ الْعَهْدِ مِنْ زِيَارَةِ قَبْرِ نَبِيِّكَ فَإِنْ تَوَفَّيْتَنِي قَبْلَ ذَلِكَ فَإِنِّي أَشْهَدُ فِي مَمَاتِي عَلَى مَا شَهِدْتُ عَلَيْهِ فِي حَيَاتِي أَنْ لا إِلَهَ إِلاَّ أَنْتَ وَأَنَّ مُحَمَّداً عَبْدُكَ وَرَسُولُكَ.


1. Ali ibn Ibrahim has narrated from his father from ibn abu ‘Umayr from Mu‘awiyah ibn ‘Ammar who has said the following: “Abu ‘ Abd Allah, ‘Alayhi al-Salam, has said, ‘When you decide to depart al-Madinah, then take a shower and go to the gravesite of the Holy Prophet, O Allah, grant compensation to Muhammad and his family worthy of their services to Your cause, after attending to your other affairs. You should do what you had done at the time you entered and say, “O Allah, do not make it my last visit of the gravesite of Your Holy Prophet. If You will cause me to die before my next visit, I testify when I die to what I have testified in my lifetime that no one other than You deserves worship and Muhammad is Your servant and messenger.’”

2ـ مُحَمَّدُ بْنُ يَحْيَى عَنْ أَحْمَدَ بْنِ مُحَمَّدٍ عَنِ ابْنِ فَضَّالٍ عَنْ يُونُسَ بْنِ يَعْقُوبَ قَالَ سَأَلْتُ أَبَا عَبْدِ الله (عَلَيْهِ السَّلاَم) عَنْ وَدَاعِ قَبْرِ النَّبِيِّ (صلَّى اللهُ عَلَيْهِ وَآلِه) قَالَ تَقُولُ صَلَّى الله عَلَيْكَ السَّلامُ عَلَيْكَ لا جَعَلَهُ الله آخِرَ تَسْلِيمِي عَلَيْكَ.


2. Muhammad ibn Yahya has narrated from Ahmad ibn Muhammad from ibn Faddal from Yunus ibn Ya’qub who has said the following: “I once asked abu ‘Abd Allah, ‘Alayhi al-Salam, about how to say farewell to the grave of the Holy prophet, O Allah, grant compensation to Muhammad and his family worthy of their services to Your cause. He (the Imam) replied, say, ‘I pray to Allah to grant you compensation worthy of Your services to His cause. I appeal before Allah not to make this my last salutation to you.’”
