4ـ عَلِيُّ بْنُ إِبْرَاهِيمَ عَنْ أَبِيهِ عَنِ ابْنِ أَبِي عُمَيْرٍ عَنْ مُعَاوِيَةَ بْنِ عَمَّارٍ عَنْ أَبِي عَبْدِ الله (عَلَيْهِ السَّلاَم) أَنَّهُ كَانَ إِذَا انْتَهَى إِلَى الْمُلْتَزَمِ قَالَ لِمَوَالِيهِ أَمِيطُوا عَنِّي حَتَّى أُقِرَّ لِرَبِّي بِذُنُوبِي فِي هَذَا الْمَكَانِ فَإِنَّ هَذَا مَكَانٌ لَمْ يُقِرَّ عَبْدٌ لِرَبِّهِ بِذُنُوبِهِ ثُمَّ اسْتَغْفَرَ الله إِلاَّ غَفَرَ الله لَهُ.

4. 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, on reaching al-Multazam, would say to his people, ‘Leave me alone so I can confess to my sins before my Lord at this place; whoever at this place confesses to his sins and thereafter asks Allah to forgive him, Allah forgives his sins.’”
