3ـ عَلِيُّ بْنُ إِبْرَاهِيمَ عَنْ أَبِيهِ عَنْ إِسْمَاعِيلَ بْنِ مَرَّارٍ عَنْ يُونُسَ عَنْ عَلِيِّ بْنِ أَبِي حَمْزَةَ قَالَ سَأَلْتُ أَبَا الْحَسَنِ (عَلَيْهِ السَّلاَم) عَنْ رَجُلٍ يَدْخُلُ مَكَّةَ فِي السَّنَةِ الْمَرَّةَ أَوِ الْمَرَّتَيْنِ أَوِ الأَرْبَعَةَ كَيْفَ يَصْنَعُ قَالَ إِذَا دَخَلَ فَلْيَدْخُلْ مُلَبِّياً وَإِذَا خَرَجَ فَلْيَخْرُجْ مُحِلاًّ قَالَ وَلِكُلِّ شَهْرٍ عُمْرَةٌ فَقُلْتُ يَكُونُ أَقَلَّ قَالَ لِكُلِّ عَشَرَةِ أَيَّامٍ عُمْرَةٌ ثُمَّ قَالَ وَحَقِّكَ لَقَدْ كَانَ فِي عَامِي هَذِهِ السَّنَةِ سِتُّ عُمَرٍ قُلْتُ لِمَ ذَاكَ فَقَالَ كُنْتُ مَعَ مُحَمَّدِ بْنِ إِبْرَاهِيمَ بِالطَّائِفِ فَكَانَ كُلَّمَا دَخَلَ دَخَلْتُ مَعَهُ.

3. Ali ibn Ibrahim has narrated from his father from ‘Isma‘il ibn Marrar from Yunus from Ali ibn abu Hamzah who has said the following: “I once asked abu al-Hassan, ‘Alayhi al-Salam, about a man who enters Makkah once, twice, three or four times every year, what should he do? He (the Imam) said, ‘When he enters he must do so saying Talbiyah and when he comes out he must do so after coming out of the state of Ihram. He (the Imam) said, ‘Every month there is al-‘Umrah.’ I then asked, ‘Can it be less?’ He (the Imam) said, ‘Yes, in every ten days there is al-‘Umrah.’ He (the Imam) then said, ‘Believe me, this year I performed six al-‘Umrah.’ I then asked, ‘How has that happened?’ He (the Imam) said, ‘I was with Muhammad ibn Ibrahim in Ta’if, so every time he entered (Makkah), I also did so with him.’”
