Entering Al-Masjid Al-Haram (The Sacred Mosque)

It is recommended to enter through Bab Al-Salam (the Gate of Peace) where possible. Otherwise he could use any gate. A pilgrim enters with his right foot, saying:

« ، اللَّهُمَّ اغْفِرْ ليِ ذُنُو افْتَحْ ليِ أَبْوَابَ رَحْمَتِكَ ، أَعُوذُ بِاللَّ و الْعَظِيمِ وَبِوَجْهِهِ الْكَرِيمِ وَسُلْطَانِهِ .« الْقَدِيمِ مِنَ الشَّيْطَانِ الرَّجِيمِ

In the name of Allah! Peace [and blessings] be upon the Messenger of Allah. O Allah! Forgive me my sins and open for me the gates of Your mercy. I seek refuge with Allah, the Great; with His Noble Essence; and with His Everlasting Sovereignty from the Accursed Shaytan".
