37. Bidding Farewell to the Ka’bah

عَنْ إِبْرَاهِيمِ بْنِ مَحْمُودٍ قَالَ: رَأَيْتُ الرِّضَا (ع) وَدَعَ الْبَيْتَ فَلَمَّا أَرَادَ أَنْ يَّخْرُجَ مِنْ بَابِ الْمَسْجِدِ خَرَّ سَاجِداً ثُمَّ قَامَ فَاسْتَقْبَلَ الْكَعْبَةَ وَ قَالَ: أَللٌّهُمَّ إِنِّي أَنْقَلِبُ عَلى أَنْ لاٌ إِلٌهَ إِلاَّ اللٌّهُ.

 
It has been narrated from Ibrahim Ibn Mahmud that he said, “I saw al-Ridha [Imam ‘Ali Ibn Musa] (peace be upon him) bid farewell to the House and when he intended to make his way out from the Masjid, he fell into prostration (Sajdah), stood up, faced the Ka’bah and then said:
 

أَللٌّهُمَّ إِنِّي أَنْقَلِبُ عَلى أَنْ لاٌ إِلٌهَ إِلاَّ اللٌّهُ.

“O’ Allah!  I have reinforced my belief that there is no entity worthy of worship except Allah.”
