14ـ عَلِيُّ بْنُ إِبْرَاهِيمَ عَنْ أَبِيهِ عَنِ ابْنِ أَبِي عُمَيْرٍ عَنْ مُعَاوِيَةَ بْنِ عَمَّارٍ عَنْ أَبِي عَبْدِ الله (عَلَيْهِ السَّلاَم) قَالَ يُسْتَحَبُّ أَنْ تَطُوفَ ثَلاثَمِائَةٍ وَسِتِّينَ أُسْبُوعاً عَدَدَ أَيَّامِ السَّنَةِ فَإِنْ لَمْ تَسْتَطِعْ فَثَلاثَمِائَةٍ وَسِتِّينَ شَوْطاً فَإِنْ لَمْ تَسْتَطِعْ فَمَا قَدَرْتَ عَلَيْهِ مِنَ الطَّوَافِ.

14. 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 that it is preferable to perform three hundred sixty Tawaf (each consisting of seven times walking around the Ka‘bah) equal to the number of days in a year. If you cannot do this, then you should walk three hundred sixty times around the Ka‘bah; and if you cannot do this much also, then do whatever you can.”
