Takbir when passing the black stone
“The Prophet (sal-Allaahu ‘alayhe wa sallam) circled the Ka’bah on a camel, every time he reached the black stone he would point to it with ‘something’ and say:
Ref: Al-Bukhari, cf. Al-Asqalani, Fathul-Bari 3/476. See also 472. The ‘something’ that was referred to in this Hadith was a cane.
Between the Yemeni corner and black stone [Ka’bah]
The Prophet (sal-Allaahu ‘alayhe wa sallam) used to say between the Yemeni corner and the black stone:
رَبَّنَآ اٰتِنَا فِي الدُّنْيَا حَسَنَةً وَّفِي الْاٰخِرَةِ حَسَـنَةً وَّقِنَا عَذَابَ النَّارِ
Our Lord, grant us the good things in this world and the good things in the next life and save us from the punishment of the Fire.
Rabbanaa ‘aatinaa fid-dunyaa hasanatan wa fil-‘aakhirati hasanatan wa qinaa ‘athaaban-naar.
Ref: Al-Bukhari, cf. Al-Asqalani, Fathul-Bari 11/171, Muslim 4/2007. The wording in Muslim’s report is: ‘make it a purification for him and a source of mercy.
When at Mount Safa and Mount Marwah
Jaabir (radhi-yAllaahu ‘anhu) said when describing the Prophet’s (sal-Allaahu ‘alayhe wa sallam) pilgrimage, when he (pbuh) approached mount as-Safaa he would recite:
إِنَّ الصَّفَا وَالْمَرْوَةَ مِنْ شَعَآئِرِ اللَّهِ
Inna assafa walmarwatamin shaAAa-iri Allahi
Indeed, as-Safa and al-Marwah are among the symbols of Allah
…and then say:
أَبْدَأُ بِمَا بَدَأَ اللَّهُ بِهِ
Abda’u bimaa bada’allaahu bihi.
…so he started with as-Safaa and climbed it until he could see the Ka’bah, he then faced it and said:
لاَ إِلَهَ إِلاَّ اللَّهُ وَحْدَهُ لاَ شَرِيكَ لَهُ، لَهُ الْمُلْكُ وَلَهُ الْحَمْدُ وَهُوَ عَلَى كُلِّ شَيْءٍ قَدِيرٌ، لاَ إِلَهَ إِلاَّ اللَّهُ وَحْدَهُ، أَنْجَزَ وَعْدَهُ، وَنَصَرَ عَبْدَهُ، وَهَزَمَ الْأَحْزَابَ وَحْدَهُ
Laa ‘ilaaha ‘illallaahu wahdahu laa shareeka lahu, lahul-mulku wa lahul-hamdu wa Huwa ‘alaa kulli shay’in Qadeer, laa ‘ilaaha ‘illallaahu ilahaahu, ‘anjaza wa’dahu, wa nasara ‘abdahu, wa hazamal ‘ahzaaba wahdahu.
None has the right to be worshipped but Allah alone, Who has no parener, His is the dominion and His is the praise, and He is Able to do all things. None has the right to be worshipped but Allah alone, He fulfilled His Promise, He aided His slave, and He alone defeated Confederates.
Ref: Muslim 2/888.
The Day of ‘Arafah
The Prophet (pbuh) said, “The best of supplications is the supplication on the day of ‘Arafah and the best which I and the Prophets before me have said” is:
لاَ إِلَهَ إِلاَّ اللَّهُ وَحْدَهُ لاَ شَرِيكَ لَهُ، لَهُ الْمُلْكُ وَلَهُ الْحَمْدُ وَهُوَ عَلَى كُلِّ شَيْءٍ قَدِيرٌ
Laa ‘ilaaha ‘illallaahu wahdahu laa shareeka lahu, lahul-mulku wa lahul-hamdu wa Huwa ‘alaa kulli shay’in Qadeer.
None has the right to be worshipped but Allah alone, Who has no parener. His is the dominion and His is the praise, and He is Able to do all things.
Ref: At-Tirmithi. Al-Albani graded it good in Sahih At-Tirmithi 3/184, and also Silsilatul-‘Ahadith As-Sahihah 4/6.
