| About the Messenger of Allah ,
he said: "When one of you enters the Masjid let him petition salam
upon the Prophet ,
and let him say: 'Allãhumma 'iftahlee 'abwãba rahmatika(83
and upon leaving let him say: 'Allãhumma 'innee 'as'aluka
In one narration he added: And petition salãm upon the Messenger
(83) 0 my 'ilãh open
for me the gates of your mercy.
(84 ) O' my 'ilãh I ask
You of your benevolence.
Ibn Taymiya said this hadeeth was sound, and that Muslim reported
it with nearly the same wording. Al-Albani clarified that this wording
is that of Abu Dawood, as well as that of Abu `Uwãnah in
his Saheeh except that Abu 'Uwãnah's report added "and making
tasleem when going out''. Al-Albani included this hadeeth in his
Saheeh 'Abi Dãwood and in his The Authentic of Good Sayings
