Back to chapter

أَبِی ره قَالَ حَدَّثَنَا سَعْدُ بْنُ عَبْدِ اللَّهِ عَنْ أَحْمَدَ بْنِ أَبِی عَبْدِ اللَّهِ عَنْ مُحَمَّدِ بْنِ مُوسَی الْیَقْطِینِیِّ عَنِ الدِّهْقَانِ عَنْ دُرُسْتَ عَنْ إِبْرَاهِیمَ بْنِ عَبْدِ الْحَمِیدِ عَنْ أَبِی الْحَسَنِ ع قَالَ قَالَ رَسُولُ اللَّهِ ص إِذَا رَکِبَ الرَّجُلُ الدَّابَّهَ فَسَمَّی رَدِفَهُ مَلَکٌ یَحْفَظُهُ حَتَّی یَنْزِلَ فَإِنْ رَکِبَ وَ لَمْ یُسَمِّ رَدِفَهُ شَیْطَانٌ فَیَقُولُ لَهُ تَغَنَّ فَإِنْ قَالَ لَا أُحْسِنُ قَالَ لَهُ تَمَنَّ فَلَا یَزَالُ یَتَمَنَّی حَتَّی یَنْزِلَ وَ قَالَ مَنْ قَالَ إِذَا رَکِبَ الدَّابَّهَ بِاسْمِ اللَّهِ وَ لَا حَوْلَ وَ لَا قُوَّهَ إِلَّا بِاللَّهِ- الْحَمْدُ لِلَّهِ الَّذِی هَدانا لِهذا وَ سُبْحانَ الَّذِی سَخَّرَ لَنا هذا وَ ما کُنَّا لَهُ مُقْرِنِینَ إِلَّا حُفِظَتْ لَهُ نَفْسُهُ وَ دَابَّتُهُ حَتَّی یَنْزِلَ.


1. Imam Musa Kazim (a.s.) narrates that the Holy Prophet (s.a.w.s.) said, “One who says Bismillaah before mounting an animal, an angel sits behind that person and protects him till he gets down from that animal. However if he does not say Bismillaah, the Satan sits behind him and asks him to sing. If he says that he does know how to sing he asks him to make a wish. Now the person continuously goes on wishing for something or the other till he gets down. One who recites: Bismillaahi wa laa h’aula wa laa quwwata illaa billaahil h’amdu lillaahilladhee hadaanaa lihaadhaa wa sub- h’aanalladhee sakhkhara lanaa haadhaa wa maa kunnaa lahu muqrineen, he and his mount reach the destination safely.”
