Hadith #8

8ـ عَلِيُّ بْنُ إِبْرَاهِيمَ عَنْ أَبِيهِ عَنْ زِيَادٍ الْقَنْدِيِّ قَالَ قُلْتُ لأَبِي الْحَسَنِ (عَلَيْهِ السَّلاَم) جُعِلْتُ فِدَاكَ إِنِّي أَكُونُ فِي الْمَسْجِدِ الْحَرَامِ وَأَنْظُرُ إِلَى النَّاسِ يَطُوفُونَ بِالْبَيْتِ وَأَنَا قَاعِدٌ فَأَغْتَمُّ لِذَلِكَ فَقَالَ يَا زِيَادُ لا عَلَيْكَ فَإِنَّ الْمُؤْمِنَ إِذَا خَرَجَ مِنْ بَيْتِهِ يَؤُمُّ الْحَجَّ لا يَزَالُ فِي طَوَافٍ وَسَعْيٍ حَتَّى يَرْجِعَ.

8. Ali ibn Ibrahim has narrated from his father from al-Ziyad al-Qandiy who has said the following: “I once said to abu al-Hassan, ‘Alayhi al-Salam, I pray to Allah to keep my soul in service for your cause, when I am in Masjid al-Haram (the Sacred Masjid) and see people perform Tawaf around the House and I am sitting, I feel sad.’ He (the Imam) said, ‘O Ziyad, do not be disappointed. When a believing person comes out of his home with the intention to perform al-Hajj, he is considered performing Tawaf and Sa‘y all the time until he is back home.’”
