Invocation of Riding


Narrated Ali Ibn Rabi'ah: "I was present with Ali while an animal was brought to him to ride. When he put his foot in the stirrup, he said: "In the name of Allah." then when he sat on its back, he said: "Praise be to Allah." he then said: "Glory be to Him who has made this subservient to us, for we had not the strength, and to our Lord we shall return." Then he said: "Praise be to Allah (thrice); Allah is most great (thrice): Glory be to You, I have wronged myself, so forgive me, for only you forgive sins." he then laughed.


He was asked: what are you laughing at? He replied: I saw the Apostle of Allah (peace and blessings be upon him) doing as I have done, and then he laughed after that. I asked: Apostle of Allah, what are you laughing at? He replied: your Lord, Most High, is pleased with his servant when he says: "Forgive my sins, for only You forgive sins." ([1])
