7ـ عِدَّةٌ مِنْ أَصْحَابِنَا عَنْ أَحْمَدَ بْنِ مُحَمَّدٍ عَنِ الْحُسَيْنِ بْنِ سَعِيدٍ عَنِ النَّضْرِ بْنِ سُوَيْدٍ عَنْ عَبْدِ الله بْنِ سِنَانٍ قَالَ قَالَ أَبُو عَبْدِ الله (عَلَيْهِ السَّلاَم) ذَكَرَ رَسُولُ الله (صلَّى اللهُ عَلَيْهِ وَآلِه) الْحَجَّ فَكَتَبَ إِلَى مَنْ بَلَغَهُ كِتَابُهُ مِمَّنْ دَخَلَ فِي الإِسْلامِ أَنَّ رَسُولَ الله (صلَّى اللهُ عَلَيْهِ وَآلِه) يُرِيدُ الْحَجَّ يُؤْذِنُهُمْ بِذَلِكَ لِيَحُجَّ مَنْ أَطَاقَ الْحَجَّ فَأَقْبَلَ النَّاسُ فَلَمَّا نَزَلَ الشَّجَرَةَ أَمَرَ النَّاسَ بِنَتْفِ الإِبْطِ وَحَلْقِ الْعَانَةِ وَالْغُسْلِ وَالتَّجَرُّدِ فِي إِزَارٍ وَرِدَاءٍ أَوْ إِزَارٍ وَعِمَامَةٍ يَضَعُهَا عَلَى عَاتِقِهِ لِمَنْ لَمْ يَكُنْ لَهُ رِدَاءٌ وَذَكَرَ أَنَّهُ حَيْثُ لَبَّى قَالَ لَبَّيْكَ اللهمَّ لَبَّيْكَ لَبَّيْكَ لا شَرِيكَ لَكَ لَبَّيْكَ إِنَّ الْحَمْدَ وَالنِّعْمَةَ لَكَ وَالْمُلْكَ لا شَرِيكَ لَكَ وَكَانَ رَسُولُ الله (صلَّى اللهُ عَلَيْهِ وَآلِه) يُكْثِرُ مِنْ ذِي الْمَعَارِجِ وَكَانَ يُلَبِّي كُلَّمَا لَقِيَ رَاكِباً أَوْ عَلا أَكَمَةً أَوْ هَبَطَ وَادِياً وَمِنْ آخِرِ اللَّيْلِ وَفِي أَدْبَارِ الصَّلَوَاتِ فَلَمَّا دَخَلَ مَكَّةَ دَخَلَ مِنْ أَعْلاهَا مِنَ الْعَقَبَةِ وَخَرَجَ حِينَ خَرَجَ مِنْ ذِي طُوًى فَلَمَّا انْتَهَى إِلَى بَابِ الْمَسْجِدِ اسْتَقْبَلَ الْكَعْبَةَ وَذَكَرَ ابْنُ سِنَانٍ أَنَّهُ بَابُ بَنِي شَيْبَةَ فَحَمِدَ الله وَأَثْنَى عَلَيْهِ وَصَلَّى عَلَى أَبِيهِ إِبْرَاهِيمَ ثُمَّ أَتَى الْحَجَرَ فَاسْتَلَمَهُ فَلَمَّا طَافَ بِالْبَيْتِ صَلَّى رَكْعَتَيْنِ خَلْفَ مَقَامِ إِبْرَاهِيمَ (عَلَيْهِ السَّلاَم) وَدَخَلَ زَمْزَمَ فَشَرِبَ مِنْهَا ثُمَّ قَالَ اللهمَّ إِنِّي أَسْأَلُكَ عِلْماً نَافِعاً وَرِزْقاً وَاسِعاً وَشِفَاءً مِنْ كُلِّ دَاءٍ وَسُقْمٍ فَجَعَلَ يَقُولُ ذَلِكَ وَهُوَ مُسْتَقْبِلُ الْكَعْبَةِ ثُمَّ قَالَ لأَصْحَابِهِ لِيَكُنْ آخِرُ عَهْدِكُمْ بِالْكَعْبَةِ اسْتِلامَ الْحَجَرِ فَاسْتَلَمَهُ ثُمَّ خَرَجَ إِلَى الصَّفَا ثُمَّ قَالَ أَبْدَأُ بِمَا بَدَأَ الله بِهِ ثُمَّ صَعِدَ عَلَى الصَّفَا فَقَامَ عَلَيْهِ مِقْدَارَ مَا يَقْرَأُ الإِنْسَانُ سُورَةَ الْبَقَرَةِ.

7. A number of our people have narrated from Ahmad ibn Muhammad from al-Husayn ibn Sa‘id from al-Nadr ibn Suwayd from ‘Abd Allah ibn Sinan who has said the following: “Abu ‘Abd Allah, ‘Alayhi al-Salam, has said that the Messenger of Allah, O Allah, grant compensation to Muhammad and his family worthy of their services to Your cause, mentioned al- Hajj. He (the Messenger of Allah) then wrote a letter to those who received his letter and who had accepted Islam that the Messenger of Allah, O Allah, grant compensation to Muhammad and his family worthy of their services to Your cause, has decided to perform al-Hajj. He (the Messenger of Allah) has given permission to all those who are capable to perform al-Hajj to do so. People came. When they arrived at al-Shajarah, he (the Messenger of Allah) commanded them to clean their under- arms, pubic hairs, and take a shower; that they must wear just a loincloth, a sheet of cloth on their shoulders and a turban to place it on their shoulder if one did not have the sheet of cloth to place on his shoulders. He (the Imam) has mentioned that when he (the Messenger of Allah) said Talbiyah he (the Messenger of Allah) said, ‘O Lord, here I am to obey your command, here I am, O Lord, to obey Your command. Indeed You have no partners, here I am to obey Your command, all praise, all bounties and the whole kingdom belong to You, You indeed have no partners.’ The Messenger of Allah, O Allah, grant compensation to Muhammad and his family worthy of their services to Your cause, would say ‘O the owner of exalted status’ a great deal. He (the Messenger of Allah) said Talbiyah when coming across a rider, climb a height, climb down a hill or a valley, toward the end of the night and after Salat (prayer). When he (the Messenger of Allah) entered Makkah, he (the Messenger of Allah) did so from the upper part of Makkah, from al-‘Aqabah and left when he left through Dhi Tuwa’. When he (the Messenger of Allah) arrived at the door of the Masjid, he (the Messenger of Allah) faced al-Ka’bah.’ Ibn Sinan has mentioned that it was the gate of banu Shaybah. He (the Messenger of Allah) praised Allah, spoke of His glory, prayed for Ibrahim and then he (the Messenger of Allah) moved to the Black Stone and touched it. When he performed Tawaf around the House he (the Messenger of Allah) then performed two Rak‘at Salat (prayer) behind the station of Ibrahim ‘Alayhi al-Salam. He (the Messenger of Allah) entered Zamzam, drank thereof and said, ‘O Allah, I appeal before You for useful knowledge, extended means of living and cure for all illnesses.’ He would say this with his face toward al-Ka‘bah. He (the Messenger of Allah) said to his companions that your last meeting with al-Ka’bah should be touching the Black Stone. He (the Messenger of Allah) touched the Black Stone; then moved to al-Safa’ then said, ‘I begin with what Allah has begun’, then he (the Messenger of Allah) climbed al-Safa’, stood there for a time within which one can recite Chapter two of al-Quran.’”
