باب اسْتِحْبَابِ دُخُولِ مَكَّةَ مِنَ الثَّنِيَّةِ الْعُلْيَا وَالْخُرُوجِ مِنْهَا مِنَ الثَّنِيَّةِ السُّفْلَى وَدُخُولِ بَلْدَةٍ مِنْ طَرِيقٍ غَيْرِ الَّتِي خَرَجَ مِنْهَا

'A'isha (Allah be pleased with her) reported that when Allah's Messenger may peace be upon him) came to Mecca he entered from its upper side and came out from its lower side.


حَدَّثَنَا مُحَمَّدُ بْنُ الْمُثَنَّى، وَابْنُ أَبِي عُمَرَ، جَمِيعًا عَنِ ابْنِ عُيَيْنَةَ، - قَالَ ابْنُ الْمُثَنَّى حَدَّثَنَا سُفْيَانُ، - عَنْ هِشَامِ بْنِ عُرْوَةَ، عَنْ أَبِيهِ، عَنْ عَائِشَةَ، أَنَّ النَّبِيَّ صلى الله عليه وسلم لَمَّا جَاءَ إِلَى مَكَّةَ دَخَلَهَا مِنْ أَعْلاَهَا وَخَرَجَ مِنْ أَسْفَلِهَا ‏.‏
