  1. Eight, the ziyarat of Arba`een i.e. Safar 20th: In his books Tahdhib al-Ahkam and Misbah al-Mutahajjid, Shaykh Tusi has quoted from Imam `Askari (`a) that he had said that a believer's qualities were five: a. Saying 51 rak`ats of prayer every day and night; that is, seventeen obligatory rak`ats and thirty four recommended rak`ats . Reciting the ziyarat of Arba`een c. Wearing ring in the right hand d. Putting one's forehead on earth while observing prostration (sujoud e. Saying "In the Name of God, the Compassionate, the Merciful (bismillah al-rahman al-raheem) with raised voice. The manner of the ziyarat of Imam Husayn (`a) on this day has been related in two ways: First, the ziyayat cited in Tahdhib al-Ahkam and Misbah al-Mutahajjid from Safwan al-Jammal: Safwan said that regarding the ziyarat of Arba`een his master, Imam Sadiq (`a) had told him, "Perform the ziyarat in the middle hour of the forenoon reciting:" السَّلاَمُ عَلَى وَلِيِّ اللَّهِ وَ حَبِيبِهِ السَّلاَمُ عَلَى خَلِيلِ اللَّهِ وَ نَجِيبِهِ Peace be on the favourite of Allah, His dearest darling!Peace be on the beloved friend of Allah, His distinguished hero! السَّلاَمُ عَلَى صَفِيِّ اللَّهِ وَ ابْنِ صَفِيِّهِ السَّلاَمُ عَلَى الْحُسَيْنِ الْمَظْلُومِ الشَّهِيدِ Peace be on the choicest confidant of Allah, sincerely attached precisely like his father! Peace be on Husayn, who established the true faith by giving his life in the way of Allah, a martyr, underwent untold hardships at the hand of rouges and lawbreakers! السَّلاَمُ عَلَى أَسِيرِ الْكُرُبَاتِ وَ قَتِيلِ الْعَبَرَاتِ Peace be on the hostage surrounded by the tightening circle of sorrow and grief, killed by a horde of savages. اللَّهُمَّ إِنِّي أَشْهَدُ أَنَّهُ وَلِيُّكَ وَ ابْنُ وَلِيِّكَ وَ صَفِيُّكَ وَ ابْنُ صَفِيِّكَ الْفَائِزُ بِكَرَامَتِكَ O my Allah I give witness that beyond a shadow of doubt he is Thy favourite and choicest confidant, who enjoys Thy confidence and favour, precisely like his father! أَكْرَمْتَهُ بِالشَّهَادَةِ وَ حَبَوْتَهُ بِالسَّعَادَةِ وَ اجْتَبَيْتَهُ بِطِيبِ الْوِلاَدَةِ Thou looked upto him and elected him in Thy cause, picked and chose him for the good fortune, selected for him the best purified parents, وَ جَعَلْتَهُ سَيِّداً مِنَ السَّادَةِ وَ قَائِداً مِنَ الْقَادَةِ وَ ذَائِداً مِنَ الذَّادَةِ وَ أَعْطَيْتَهُ مَوَارِيثَ الْأَنْبِيَاءِ appointed him guardian, leader, and defender of rights, a true representative (inheritor and progenitor) of guardians, leaders and defenders of rights, gave him much and more from the inheritance of the Prophets, وَ جَعَلْتَهُ حُجَّةً عَلَى خَلْقِكَ مِنَ الْأَوْصِيَاءِ فَأَعْذَرَ فِي الدُّعَاءِ وَ مَنَحَ النُّصْحَ put him forward as a decisive argument, alongwith the other successors (of the Holy Prophet-the twelve Imaams) to the mankind. He met with deadly dangers, acted justly and fairly, made use of everything belonging to him to pay full attention to give sincere advice; وَ بَذَلَ مُهْجَتَهُ فِيكَ لِيَسْتَنْقِذَ عِبَادَكَ مِنَ الْجَهَالَةِ وَ حَيْرَةِ الضَّلاَلَةِ took pains, made every effort, and put his heart, mind, soul and life at the disposal of Thy mission to liberate the people from the yoke of ignorance and evil of bewilderment, وَ قَدْ تَوَازَرَ عَلَيْهِ مَنْ غَرَّتْهُ الدُّنْيَا وَ بَاعَ حَظَّهُ بِالْأَرْذَلِ الْأَدْنَى وَ شَرَى آخِرَتَهُ بِالثَّمَنِ الْأَوْكَسِ but an evildoer, deceived withempty hopes of mean andworthless worldly gains, had pressed heavily on him, and sold out his share (eternal bliss) for the meanest and lowest bargain, betrayed his "day of judgement" for a vulgar return, وَ تَغَطْرَسَ وَ تَرَدَّى فِي هَوَاهُ وَ أَسْخَطَكَ وَ أَسْخَطَ نَبِيَّكَ took pride in insolence, fell into the fathomwell of silly stupid follies, provoked Thee and Thy Prophet to anger, وَ أَطَاعَ مِنْ عِبَادِكَ أَهْلَ الشِّقَاقِ وَ النِّفَاقِ وَ حَمَلَةَ الْأَوْزَارِ الْمُسْتَوْجِبِينَ النَّارَ (لِلنَّارِ) did as the harsh discordant, the hypocrite, the heavily burdened bearers of sin, condemned to Hellfire, advised to him, فَجَاهَدَهُمْ فِيكَ صَابِراً مُحْتَسِباً حَتَّى سُفِكَ فِي طَاعَتِكَ دَمُهُ وَ اسْتُبِيحَ حَرِيمُهُ however, he (the Holy Imam), steadily, rightly and justly coped with them, till, in Thy obedience, gave his life after which his family was set adrift. اللَّهُمَّ فَالْعَنْهُمْ لَعْناً وَبِيلاً وَ عَذِّبْهُمْ عَذَاباً أَلِيماً O my Allah, therefore, condemn them to hell as a denunciation and conviction; and crack down on them with a painful punishment. السَّلاَمُ عَلَيْكَ يَا ابْنَ رَسُولِ اللَّهِ السَّلاَمُ عَلَيْكَ يَا ابْنَ سَيِّدِ الْأَوْصِيَاءِ Peace be on you O the son of the Messenger of Allah! Peace be on you O the son of the first of the successors (of the Holy Prophet)! أَشْهَدُ أَنَّكَ أَمِينُ اللَّهِ وَ ابْنُ أَمِينِهِ عِشْتَ سَعِيداً وَ مَضَيْتَ حَمِيداً وَ مُتَّ فَقِيداً مَظْلُوماً شَهِيداً I bear witness that Allah put faith in you like He had full confidence in your father, and that you always looked for and collected good and virtue, lived a highly praiseworthy life, and departed from this world a martyr, forsaken and abused; وَ أَشْهَدُ أَنَّ اللَّهَ مُنْجِزٌ مَا وَعَدَكَ وَ مُهْلِكٌ مَنْ خَذَلَكَ وَ مُعَذِّبٌ مَنْ قَتَلَكَ I bear witness that Allah will promptly fulfil the promise He made to you, and destroy those who left you helpless and punish those who killed you; وَ أَشْهَدُ أَنَّكَ وَفَيْتَ بِعَهْدِ اللَّهِ وَ جَاهَدْتَ فِي سَبِيلِهِ حَتَّى أَتَاكَ الْيَقِينُ I bear witness that you kept your promise made with Allah, and strived in His way till what was certain came upon you, فَلَعَنَ اللَّهُ مَنْ قَتَلَكَ وَ لَعَنَ اللَّهُ مَنْ ظَلَمَكَ وَ لَعَنَ اللَّهُ أُمَّةً سَمِعَتْ بِذَلِكَ فَرَضِيَتْ بِهِ so curse of Allah be on those who killed you, curse of Allah be on those who oppressed you, curse of Allah be on the people who came to know and approved (of it all). اللَّهُمَّ إِنِّي أُشْهِدُكَ أَنِّي وَلِيٌّ لِمَنْ وَالاَهُ وَ عَدُوٌّ لِمَنْ عَادَاهُ O my Allah be my witness that I make friends with those who love him and oppose those who deny him. بِأَبِي أَنْتَ وَ أُمِّي يَا ابْنَ رَسُولِ اللَّهِ أَشْهَدُ أَنَّكَ كُنْتَ نُوراً فِي الْأَصْلاَبِ الشَّامِخَةِ وَ الْأَرْحَامِ الْمُطَهَّرَةِ (الطَّاهِرَةِ) I, my father and mother, are at your disposal O the son of the Messenger of Allah. I know and bear witness that you were "light" in the sublime loins and in the pure wombs, لَمْ تُنَجِّسْكَ الْجَاهِلِيَّةُ بِأَنْجَاسِهَا وَ لَمْ تُلْبِسْكَ الْمُدْلَهِمَّاتُ مِنْ ثِيَابِهَا never touched you the dirt of ignorance, nor ever obscurity concealed you in its folds; وَ أَشْهَدُ أَنَّكَ مِنْ دَعَائِمِ الدِّينِ وَ أَرْكَانِ الْمُسْلِمِينَ وَ مَعْقِلِ الْمُؤْمِنِينَ I bear witness that you are the pillar of "Deen", support of the Muslims, refuge of the faithfuls; وَ أَشْهَدُ أَنَّكَ الْإِمَامُ الْبَرُّ التَّقِيُّ الرَّضِيُّ الزَّكِيُّ الْهَادِي الْمَهْدِيُ I bear witness that you are a truthful, well-aware, content, intelligent, rightly guided guide (Imam); وَ أَشْهَدُ أَنَّ الْأَئِمَّةَ مِنْ وُلْدِكَ كَلِمَةُ التَّقْوَى وَ أَعْلاَمُ الْهُدَى وَ الْعُرْوَةُ الْوُثْقَى وَ الْحُجَّةُ عَلَى أَهْلِ الدُّنْيَا I bear witness that the Imams among your descendants are the symbols of "conscious piety" and signs of "true guidance", the "safe handle"-Islam, and the decisive arguments over mankind; وَ أَشْهَدُ أَنِّي بِكُمْ مُؤْمِنٌ وَ بِإِيَابِكُمْ مُوقِنٌ بِشَرَائِعِ دِينِي وَ خَوَاتِيمِ عَمَلِي I declare positively that I have full faith in you, and I know for certain that you shall return. I am, fully committed to the laws of my religion, certainof my deeds, وَ قَلْبِي لِقَلْبِكُمْ سِلْمٌ وَ أَمْرِي لِأَمْرِكُمْ مُتَّبِعٌ وَ نُصْرَتِي لَكُمْ مُعَدَّةٌ حَتَّى يَأْذَنَ اللَّهُ لَكُمْ my mind and heart ready for your return, and my affairs carried out in the light of your instructions, till Allah gives you permission, فَمَعَكُمْ مَعَكُمْ لاَ مَعَ عَدُوِّكُمْ together with you, along with you, not at the same time with your enemies. صَلَوَاتُ اللَّهِ عَلَيْكُمْ وَ عَلَى أَرْوَاحِكُمْ وَ أَجْسَادِكُمْ (أَجْسَامِكُمْ) Blessings of Allah be on you, on your souls, on your bodies, وَ شَاهِدِكُمْ وَ غَائِبِكُمْ وَ ظَاهِرِكُمْ وَ بَاطِنِكُمْ آمِينَ رَبَّ الْعَالَمِينَ when you are visible, when you are invisible, on your percievable aspects, on your innermost genius, be it so, O Lord of the worlds! Then say two rak`ats of prayer, and pray for what you wish, after that go back.
  2. It is the ardent desire of every Shia to visit the Holy shrines of their immaculate Imam (a.s.). Most of us had that opportunity before and will visit them again, Insha Allah while there are many who will go to them soon. Making your presence in front of them requires more of a sincerity, love and passion alongwith recognition of their rights. Arbae'en is near and it is the best opportunity for each one of us to call out labbaik. Those yearning for the Ziyarat of Ab'a Abdillah should take a step ahead and start with preparations, as in: Do I have my passport ready? Is it nearing expiry? Procedure for obtaining visa (Tour operator will take care if you are going with Qafela) Applying for leaves in office in advance. What about my finances? If it is less, how can I arrange extra amount? Which tour operators should I go with? Any other obstacles/hurdles, etc. Please note this thread is not for debating on any particular aspect or method or rewards of Ziyarat but a means to get ourselves prepared for it. The rewards and merits of Ziyarat of Imam Hussain (a.s.) is much more than can be outlined here. I'll mention but a few traditions to get an overview of it's great virtue, in the next post. You are welcome to present ahadith and how are you going to take part in Arbae'en this year.
  3. Pilgrimage to Iran

    Salaam, I am a Sunni who has a Shia friend who is going on pilgrimage to Iran. I would like to buy him a going away gift but I am not sure what would be appropriate. Any help would be much appreciated shukran.
  4. Salam Alaikum everyone! I was just curious, which shrines/ziyarah have you visited? I've been to Mashad and Qom so far
  5. Salam Alaykum I am from Toronto, and Inshallah will be going for ziyarat before arbaeen, and will be there during arbaeen. I plan on going to Najaf first, and from there to Karbala. The problem is that I will not be going with a kafila because unfortunately I can not afford it. I am using my left over money from osap and my credit card to cover the cost. The ticket it self is $1700 CAD. Is there anyone who is interested in going together ? or for those who are not in the same country, maybe we can meet in Najaf or Karbala and accompany each other. It is my first time going, I have never been there and unfortunately I do not even speak, or understand arabic. Besides the Imams, I do not know anyone else there. I dont know where to stay if its not at the hotels, which seems expensive. Therefore I will feel safer if there would be someone else. Maybe someone is in a similar situation, and is looking for someone to accompany them. Please message me. In the coming week I will be applying for my visa, and it should be processed within a week. -Abbas
  6. ZIYARAT E ASHURA

    SALAAMUN ALAIKUM Alqamah bin Mohammed ibn Hazrami (r.a.) narrates ‘I requested Imam Baqir (a.s.) to teach me a dua that I should recite on the day of Aashoora after the reciting the Ziyaarat of Imam Husain (a.s.) – from near his (a.s.) grave or from a distance.’ Imam (a.s.) replied ‘O Alqamah, whenever you wish to recite the Ziyaarat of Imam Husain (a.s.), you first perform two units of prayers. Then turn towards the grave of Imam Husain (a.s.) and while pointing towards it, you first say ‘Salam’ and then ‘Takbir’. Thereafter, you recite this Ziyaarat (Ziyaarate Aashoora). If you do so, then as if you have recited the supplication read by the angels while visiting the grave of Imam Husain (a.s.). Moreover, when you recite this Ziyaarat, then, Allah will increase your grade ten lakh times You will be included among those people who were martyred along with Imam Husain (a.s.) On the day of Judgment, you will be included among the martyrs You will get the reward of all the Prophets (a.s.) who have visited the grave of Imam Husain (a.s.) from the day that he (a.s.) was martyred till date. And the way of reciting the Ziyaarat is like this…’ (Then Imam (a.s.) recited the entire Ziyaarate Aashoora for Alqamah (r.a.) (Ref: Kaamil al-Ziyaarat, Ibn Qoolwayh, Ch. 71, p.194) At the end of this tradition, Imam Baqir (a.s.) says ‘O Alqamah, if you can, then recite this Ziyaarat every day send salutations to Imam Husain (a.s.). You will get all the rewards (of the one who recites it on the day of Aashoora).’ CLICK HERE TO VISIT THE BLOG "THE ZIYARAT OF ASHURAH " FOR THE IMPORTANCE , MERITS , AUTHENCITY AND VARIOUS AUDIO AND VIDEO RECITATIONS OF ZIYARAT E ASHURA IN DIFFERENT LANGUAGES

  8. Iraq Ziyarat

    Assalam o Alaikum Hope you are all well? InshALLAH by the grace of Allah I will soon be going on ziyarat in Iraq. I feel so lucky and blessed to have this opportunity to go and visit imam Hussain (as). Although wish I could have gone for Arbaeen but will inshALLAH be going in December during the xmas holidays. I am a revert shia (from sunni) and inshALLAH I will be going with my husband (who is a born shia), who has also never been before. My family is still all sunni, so I cant ask them as they'd have no idea. So i just thought you lovely members could help me out a little bit. So, i don't really know how to dress, i am a female, and I know I will have to be in full hijab. I already do hijab and will take some abayas with me, but the question I would like to ask is, as i will be going after Arbaeen would i be expected to wear black? I dont mind wearing black as most of my abayas are in black (and would be convenient). However then I wonder as its not Muharram and it will be after Arbaeen and even after Eid e Zahra...would it be bad to wear black. What colours should i wear/be expected to wear? what colours are a no no? Any advice on what I or my husband should wear and any other advice on what we should take with us? Many thanks for all your help Iltemase dua

  10. Any Ziarat Trips From The Uk?

    Salams, Does anyone know of any Ziarat (Iraq, Iran, Syria etc) trips coming up this year? Please do share here and let me know R
  11. In the name of Allah(SWT)! Salam aleykum dear brothers and sister. Alhamdulillah I got the opportunity to do ziyarat of Imam Ridha(a.s.) in Mashhad and I will be here until the end of this week and I intend on being in his masjid as much as I can. I would like to take this opportunity to also pray/make duas for my brothers and sisters here on SC. If you have any dua that you would like me to read for the Imam(a.s.) then you are very welcomed to PM either brother @magma, sister @notme, or sister @starlight and they will remove your identity and just forward the dua to me so that you will stay anonymous to me. I will iA be sitting in front of the haram as I recite these duas. InshaAllah I hope I can be of use to my sisters and brothers and inshaAllah we can all make duas for each other. Fi amanillah.
  12. Salamalaikum, Me and my family are hoping to go for ziyarat to Iraq making all 4 stops to Karbala, Najaf, Samarra and Khadimayn. We are planning to go ideally without a package because that way we can stay where we like for as long as we like etc. I know the visa process is a little complicated however we have found someone who charges £300 for 5 people to do the visas. My questions are: Do you know what airport is best to fly to from the UK? - Baghdad/Najaf. What's the best way to communicate from Ziyarat to Ziyarat ? - coach/taxi. Are there any suitable packages you're aware of leaving in the next month or so for 10+ days? - I've been quoted £1350 for 10 nights. Any information would be highly appreciated. Thank you.

  15. Salaam brothers and sisters, this thread is about your travels including past travels. I have traveled only once. And that was when I traveled to India back in late 2007 and that was for only 2 weddings. My parents are from India so I am technically Indian but I was born in Canada so I am Canadian. Now recently, my father planned to take me to Mecca for umrah, and to India twice and to Iraq for ziyarat. It's going to be a great trip, it has been 9 years since I last traveled.
  16. Salam all, I am looking for information regarding going to ziyarat to Iraq and Iran this summer. Unfortunately, it does not seem that much information is online regarding how to plan for such a trip - what to bring, how to get there, where to live, etc. Do people only go through travel agencies these days? If so, what's a good travel agency in NY? I've only found one online which looks somewhat reliable. Jazak'Allah!
  17. Ayatullah Najafi Kochani (r.a.), an extremely devout scholar of his time, was one of Mulla Akhund Khorasani’s most distinguished students. The former has mentioned a dream in he saw during his days in the Hauze Ilmiyya in Isfahan. He saw death in the guise of a calf. It was enveloped by three to four children. These children were gliding over my house, until one of them sat on the wall of my house. This dream was most fascinating. Ayatullah Najafi wrote a letter to his father explaining the entire dream to seek its interpretation. In the end he requested his father to reply as soon as possible, regarding his health, so that he could rest assured. Ayatullah Najafi’s letter was still in transit, when he received a letter from his father. His father had written: Your mother has departed from this transient world for her eternal abode. For the Ziarat of Imam Hussain (a.s.), she had a incurred a debt of twelve tomaan, which now with interest has compounded to eighty tomaan.’ Ayatullah Najafi writes that his father was so poor, that even if he had gathered all means at his disposal he would never be absolved from that debt. At that moment I pledged that I would recite Ziarate Ashoora in the mosque of Isfahan for forty days to secure respite for my father. I used to begin my recitation two hours before zavaal and complete it just before zavaal. I performed this routine for forty days. I beseeched Allah for the exemption of my father’s debts and also sought two other requests. Regarding my first request, I implored Allah for the position of a Mujtahid. And as for my second, I entreated Allah not to deprive me of intercession the Day of Judgement. I had not even completed the recitation of Ziarat for a month, when I received another letter from my father. He informed me about having been relieved from his debt with the sadaqah of Imam Moosa Kazim (a.s.). I wrote to my father, ‘You have not got succour from Imam Moosa Kazim (a.s.), but from Sayyadush Shohada, Imam Hussain (a.s.), although all (Aimmah) have been created from the same light’. After a period of comfort, I was again confronted with a disturbing situation. But the extraordinary results of the above mentioned incident had only strengthened my conviction regarding this Ziarat. Again I pledged to recite this Ziarat for a duration of forty days. I commenced recitation of the Ziarat in Muharram with the same fervour and sincerity as before. On the completion of the duration of forty days, I saw a dream, wherein I witnessed the realization of my demands for which I had undertaken the pledge of reciting Ziarat. When I woke the next day my satisfaction and delight was without any limit.
  18. Ziyaarat–e-Aashoora and the supplication recited after it, which is famous as Dua-e-Alqamah, are reliable narrations which cannot be rejected. Their presence in ancient and authentic Shia books shows that scholars, traditionalists and theologians have been particular in narrating the same and jurists have carefully considered its chain of transmission before authenticating it. Ziyaarat-e-Aashoora, which is widely reported in Shia books, has two primary sources: 1. Kaamil al-Ziyaaraat of Ibne Qulwayh (r.a.) (exp. 367 A.H.) 2. Misbaah of Shaikh Toosi (r.a.) (exp. 460 A.H.) Although its reference has been narrated through several chains, we will focus on the chain narrated by Shaikh Toosi (a.r.) in Misbaah. We have taken the reference of the tradition of Ziyaarat-e-Aashoora from the author of the book ‘Shifaa al-Sudoor fi Sharhe Ziyaarate Aashoor’, Al Haajj Mirza Abul Fazl Tehrani, regarding whom, the great traditionalist Shaikh Abbas-e-Qummi (r.a.), the compiler of ‘Mafaateeh al-Jinaan’, has recorded in his book ‘Al Kuniyyah wa al-Alqaab’: “Mirza Abul Fazl, the scholar, the worthy one, the jurist, the theologian, the wise, the mathematician, knower of biographies and history, the litterateur and poet, who expired in 1314 AH in Tehran and is buried in the yard of Imam Zaadeh Hamzah (r.a.) in Shah Abdul Azeem (r.a.) in the grave of his father.” Mirza Abul Fazl Tehrani says, ‘I limit myself to the best and most reliable chain of Ziyaarat-e-Aashoora in my view.’ Then he records – I heard from: 1.

Hasan Toosi[24] who has written in his book ‘Misbaah al-Mutahajjid’ that, ‘Muhammad b. Ismael b. Baazee[25] heard from Saalih b. Uqbah who heard from his father Uqbah b. Qais b. Samaan who heard from Imam Muhammad Baqir (a.s.) who said: ‘One who visits Imam Husain (a.s.) on the 10th of Muharram and laments on his grave, will be presented in front of Allah on the Day of Judgment such that he will get the reward of two thousand Hajj, two thousand Umrah and two thousand Jihaad and the reward of each Hajj, Umrah and Jihaad will be such that he had performed it with the Holy Prophet (s.a.w.a.) and the infallible Imams (a.s.).’ ‘Uqbah says, I said – may I be sacrificed upon you, what about the person who cannot reach the blessed grave and lives away from the city (Karbala)?’ ‘Imam (a.s.) replied: If this is the case, then he should go out in solitude or over the rooftop and face the grave of Imam Husain, send salutations on him (a.s.), excessively curse his killers, pray two units of prayers and perform these acts in the earlier part of the day, that is before noon. Thereafter, he should remember the calamities of Imam Husain (a.s.), lament over them and also order his family members to lament over Imam Husain (a.s.) (if he is not in Taqaiyya), recite elegies and do maatam to a great extent and express grief and sorrow and condole one another in the name of Imam Husain (a.s.).’ ‘Then he (a.s.) continued: if someone does this, then I guarantee that all those rewards will be for him and Allah will bestow him with all those rewards.’ ‘The narrator asked – may I be sacrificed on you, will you be the guarantor and caretaker for such a person? ‘Imam (a.s.) replied indeed, if the person does so, I will be his guarantor and caretaker.’ ‘The narrator says – I said – how should people condole one another? Imam (a.s.) replied – They should say, اَعْظَمَ اللہُ اُجُوْرَنَا بِمُصَابِنَا بِالْحُسَیْنِ  وَ جَعَلَنَا وَ اِيَّاكُمْ مِنَ الطَّالِبِيْنَ بِثَارِهٖ مَعَ وَلِيِّهِ الْاِمَامِ الْمَهْدِيِّ مِنْ آلِ مُحَمَّدٍ عَلَيْهِمُ السَّلَامُ. ‘May Allah increase our reward in the sorrow for Imam Husain (a.s.) and include us and you among those who will avenge his unjust killing with Imam Mahdi (a.s.)’ ‘And if it is possible, then he should not go out for any worldly matter because this is a very heartrending day and no wish will be fulfilled on this day and even if it is fulfilled, there will not be any blessings in it and there will not be any goodness seen from it. And none of you should purchase anything for your house on this day because if any one purchases anything for his house on this day, he will not see any blessing in it. He should neither purchase for himself nor for his family. And if he does so (not purchase) then Allah will give him the reward for thousand Hajj, thousand Umrah and thousand Jihaad performed with the Holy Prophet (s.a.w.a.) and he will be rewarded with the reward of all the prophets, messengers, truthful ones and martyrs who sacrificed themselves in the way of Allah from the day the universe was created till the Day of Judgment.’ Saalih b. Uqbah and Saif b. Umairah say that Alqamah b. Muhammad Hazarami says that I said to Imam Baqir (a.s.) that you teach me a supplication that I can recite when I cannot visit Imam Husain (a.s.) and (can) send salutations on him from far. VISIT SERATONLINE.COM Imam (a.s.) informed, ‘O Alqamah! Send salutation facing the grave of Imam Husain (a.s.), recite two units of prayers and recite Takbeer while facing the grave, then recite the salutation which is in the form of a ziyaarat. If you do this, it will be as if you have recited that supplication which the angels visiting the grave recite. Allah will write for you a million grades and you will be enumerated among those who were martyred with Imam Husain (a.s.) and will be accounted along with the martyrs and be recognized with them and the reward of every Prophet, every Messenger and every visitor to the grave of Imam Husain (a.s.) from the day of his martyrdom till date will be written for you and that salutation is as follows:

that all this reward may be written for you.’ Then Shaikh Toosi (r.a.) says, “Muhammad b. Khalid Tailani narrates from Saif b. Umairah who says that I started to travel towards Najaf along with Safwan b. Sahraan Jammaal and a few companions, after Imam Sadiq’s (a.s.) departure from Heera to Medina. After completing the Ziyaarat of Ameerul Momineen (a.s.) Safwaan b. Sahraan turned his face towards the grave of Sayyid al-Shohada – Imam Husain (a.s.) and said that we should sent salutations on Imam Husain (a.s.) from the side of the holy head of Ali (a.s.) as Imam Sadiq (a.s.) has also done the same thing while I was there in his presence. Saif b. Umairah says, ‘Then Safwaan recited the same Ziyaarat (of Ashoora) which Alqamah had narrated from Imam Baqir (a.s.) regarding the day of Aashoora. He recited two units of prayers near the holy head of Ameerul Momineen (a.s.) and after the prayer bid farewell to Ameerul Momineen (a.s.), then faced the grave of Imam Husain (a.s.) and bid farewell after salutations and Ziyaarat and from the supplications which he recited, one was as follows: يَا اللَّهُ يَا اللَّهُ يَا اللَّهُ يَا مُجِيبَ دَعْوَةِ الْمُضْطَرِّينَ يَا كَاشِفَ كُرَبِ

Saif b. Umairah says that I asked Safwaan – Alqamah b. Muhammad has not narrated this supplication from Imam Baqir (a.s.), rather he has only narrated the Ziyaarat.’ Safwaan replied, ‘I had visited this place along with Imam Sadiq (a.s.) then he (a.s.) had performed the same actions which I have repeated and recited the same Ziyaarat and supplication which I have recited now. Thereafter, he (a.s.) recited two units of prayers as we recited and bid farewell in the same manner as we did. Safwaan informed me – Imam Sadiq (a.s.) instructed me to be regular with this Ziyaarat and to keep reciting this supplication as – I am the guarantor for the one who recite this Ziyaarat and supplication either from near or far such that: 1. his prayers will be answered 2. his effort will be rewarded 3. his salutations will be accepted 4. his wishes will be fulfilled 5. his position will be elevated and he will not become hopeless O Safwaan, I have heard this Ziyaarat from my father Imam Baqir (a.s.) who heard from his father Imam Zainul Aabideen (a.s.) who heard from his father Imam Husain (a.s.) who narrated from his brother Imam Hasan (a.s.) who heard from his father Ameerul Momineen (a.s.) who heard from the Holy Prophet (s.a.w.a.) who heard from Jibrail (a.s.) who received it from Allah and Allah has sworn by His Holy Being that whoever recites the Ziyaarat and supplication either from near or far, then I will accept his Ziyaarat and fulfill all his wishes and he will not return from My Presence hopeless but will go back as the one freed of hell, wishes fulfilled and deserving of heaven and if he intercedes on behalf of someone then I will accept it too and also said that except the enemies of Ahle Bait (a.s.) (since none’s intercession will be accepted in their favor) as Allah has said swearing by His Holy Being and made us a witness over it and even the angels of the heaven are a witness over this. Jibrail (a.s.) says, ‘O Messenger of Allah, Allah has sent me to give this glad tiding to you, Ali, Faatemah, Hasan and Husain (a.s.) and their progeny which will be a cause of happiness for you, them and your Shias.’ Safwan says that after this Imam Sadiq (a.s.) advised me, ‘O Safwan, whenever you need anything, then recite this Ziyaarat from wherever you wish and recite the supplication and then seek your wishes from Allah, it will definitely be fulfilled and Allah will not violate His Promise to the messenger.’ Ziyaarat is a Golden ChainThe chain of narration of the tradition, ‘Kalimato laa Ilaaha Illallahi Hisni’ is called as Silsilah al-Zahab – the Golden Chain (whose chain of narrators are valuable, evident and illuminated) on account of its pure and holy chain of narrators, which Imam Reza (a.s.) has narrated from his forefathers – which is also said to be Hadees-e-Qudsi. Then is calling the tradition of Ziyaarat-e-Aashoora, which is connected to Allah through infallibles (a.s.) and from infallibles through eminent personalities, which include jurists, traditionalists, and is also Hadees-e-Qudsi, as the Golden Chain, inappropriate? Absolutely not! This Ziyaarat is among the Hadees-e-Qudsi which has reached the Holy Prophet (s.a.w.a.) from Allah through Jibrail (a.s.) in sequential order of Ziyaarat, curse, salutations and supplication and based on experience if recited regularly for 40 days or less, is unmatched in having wishes fulfilled, calamities solved and enemies repelled. Therefore, believers should make it a part of their lives and recite it daily so that they themselves witness its blessings. May Allah grant us success in praying for the earliest reappearance of Imam Mahdi (a.t.f.s.), the avenger of Imam Husain’s (a.s.) blood, and include us among his companions.

View Larger Map Landmarks (Poles) – Pole Numbers are mentioned along the road from Najaf to Karbala on every Pole: Poles Starts After 10 Km. Pole # 1 Ministry Office on Left side of the Road Pole # 345 Concrete Walls - Temporary Checkpost Pole # 578 City of Haidariya - Haidariya Hospital Pole # 647 Proper Permanent Washrooms Pole # 960 Large Checkposts Pole # 1183 Checkpost Pole # 1237 Imam Ali (A.S) City - Washrooms, Mosque, Rest Area etc. Pole # 1252 Ministry of Import/Export - Office Pole # 1285 Checking Checkpost - Entrance of Karbala Pole # 1294 [Optional Shortcut] Turn Right – After about 4.5 Km (New 1-100 Poles on this Route) – Original Poles will again start from 1407 Pole # 1407 First Sight to Roza-e-Hazrat Abbas (A.S) - People who Have Turn Right at 1294 will Join here (Note: Remove your Shoes in Respect to Haram) Pole # 1452 End of Poles 25 Meters Bab-e-Qibla - Roza-e-Hazrat Abbas (A.S) Recommended Stops/Milestones: Keep on walking until the poles start - Preferably don't stop before the poles' starts. Try to spend the 1st Night in any Moukkab somewhere between 400-500 Poles. Try to spend the 2nd Night in any Moukkab somewhere between 950-1100 Poles. You should take stops after every 100/200 or so poles to re-group with family/friends and take a rest of 10-15 minutes to ease your muscles. Walking Notes: · Start walking after Fajr and stop walking at Maghrib. · Don’t over-stretch yourself during the walk. Take a rest, when required. · After Namaz e Maghrib, get a place to sleep in one of the Camps or Hussainiyah - There are thousands, so you don't have to worry much. Belongings' Notes: Try not to get too much weight with you. Don't take anything to eat or drink, there is already too much on the way. Take any regular medicines that would be required during the 2-3 days’ walk. Prefer a lightweight backpack instead of a shopping bag to carry stuff during your journey. Proper clothes to avoid the cold - Socks, Hand Gloves, Cap, Ear-cover, Jacket & preferably a shawl. Any suitable cream for rashes. You can get a small pocket Quran/Duas/Ziyarat or put them in your mobile (if possible) to pass your time while walking. Don't wear new shoes - Try to wear something comfortable, that you can walk with. Passport, Mobile Charger (if you are carrying a mobile). Important Notes: You don't have to worry much about doing it completely. If you ever think, that you cannot continue at any point, you can take a van to reach Karbala, there are hundreds everywhere. An average male/female above the age of 10 years is 99.99% likely to complete it on the 3rd day without any issues. You should at least give it a try – it is definitely worth it!! Make sure you know the name of the Hotel; you are intended to stay in Karbala. If you want to make a phone call, make it before Fajr to get your calls through, as they normally don't go through rest of the day due to high network traffic. You can use AsiaCell’s GPRS to communicate. Landmarks/Re-Grouping Stops: Pole # 72 Moukkab Aal-e Abi-Talib (A.S.) Pole # 297 Moukkab Al-Abrar Pole # 458 Moukkab Imam Zain-ul-Abedin (A.S.)

Sayings of Imam Jafar-e-Sadiq (A.S) About Ziyarat-e-Imam Hussain (A.S): When the visitor leaves the house, each and every spot that he steps on, prays for him. (Behaarul Anwar, vol 101, pg 15, tradition 14) When the rays of the sun fall on the visitor of Imam's (a.s.) shrines, it consumes his sins like the fire consumes wooden sticks. The sun does not leave any sin on his body and he returns home sinless. In fact on his return he is granted a status that is not even given to those who shed their blood in Allah's path. (Behaarul Anwar, vol 101, pg 15, tradition 14; Kamiluz Ziaraat, pg 298) When a Shia knows Imam Hussain's (a.s.) right over the people and leaves his house for Imam's (a.s.) ziarat in this condition, without any pride and conceit, then a 1,000 angels accompany him from the right, with another 1,000 angels on the left. And he will be rewarded as if he has performed 1,000 Hajj and 1,000 Umrah with a prophet or with the successor (wasi) of a prophet.(Behaarul Anwar, vol 101, pg 91, tradition 33) NO COPYRIGHTS.

Surely the tribulations are great and unbearable and your tragedy is great for us, and for all the people of Islam and unbearable and great is your tragedy in the heavens and for all of the dwellers of the heavens. فَلَعَنَ اللّٰهُ أُمَّةً أَسَّسَتْ أَسَاسَ الظُّلْمِ وَالْـجَوْرِ عَلَيْكُمْ أَهْلَ الْبَيْتِ May the curse (La’n) be upon those people who laid down the foundations for the oppression and wrongs done upon you, the family of the Prophet [Ahlul Bayt]. وَلَعَنَ اللّٰهُ أُمَّةً دَفَعَتْكُمْ عَنْ مَقَامِكُمْ وَأَزَالَتْكُمْ عَنْ مَرَاتِبِكُمُ الَّتِي رَتَّبَكُمُ اللّٰهُ فِيهَا May Allah curse those people who denied you your position (O’ Ahlul Bayt) and removed you from your rank which Allah himself had granted you. وَلَعَنَ اللّٰهُ أُمَّةً قَتَلَتْكُمْ، وَلَعَنَ اللّٰهُ الْـمُمَهِّدِينَ لَـهُمْ بِالتَّمْكِينِ مِنْ قِتَالِكُمْ May the curse of Allah be upon those people who killed you and may the curse of Allah be upon those people who made it easy for them by preparing the grounds of your killing. بَرِئْتُ إِلىٰ اللّٰهِ وَإِلَيْكُمْ مِنْهُمْ وَأَشْيَاعِهِمْ وَأَتْبَاعِهِمْ وَأَوْلِيَآئِهِمْ I turn to Allah and I turn towards you and turn away from them and their adherents, followers and friends. يَا أَبَا عَبْدِ اللّٰهِ، إِنِّي سِلْمٌ لـِمَنْ سالَـمَكُمْ، وَحَرْبٌ لـِمَنْ حَارَبَكُمْ إِلىٰ يَوْمِ الْقِيَامَةِ O’ Aba ‘Abdillah! I am at peace with those who make peace with you and I am at war with those who make war with you until the Day of Judgment. وَلَعَنَ اللّٰهُ آلَ زِيَادٍ وَآلَ مَرْوَانَ، وَلَعَنَ اللّٰهُ بَنِي أُمَيَّةَ قَاطِبَةً May the curse of Allah be upon the family of Ziyad and the family of Marwan and may the curse of Allah be upon Bani Umayyah. وَلَعَنَ اللّٰهُ ابْنَ مَرْجَانَةَ، وَلَعَنَ اللّٰهُ عُمَرَ بْنَ سَعْدٍ، وَلَعَنَ اللّٰهُ شِـمْراً، May the curse of Allah be upon Ibn Marjana and may the curse of Allah be upon ‘‘Umar b.

Surely my sorrow for you is great and I pray to Allah who has honored your status and has also honoured me through you that He grant me the opportunity to seek your revenge with the victorious Imam from the family of Muhammad. أَللّٰهُمَّ اجْعَلْنِي عِنْدَكَ وَجِيهاً بِالْـحُسَيْنِ˛عَلَيهِ السَّلاَمُ فِي الدُّنْيَا وَالآخِرَةِ، O’ Allah!

Surely I seek closeness to Allah and to His Messenger and to the Commander of the Faithful and to Fatimah and to Hasan and to you through love of you and through distancing myself from those who laid the foundations and those who built upon and carried out oppression and cruelty upon you all and upon your followers. بَرِئْتُ إِلىٰ اللّٰهِ وَإِلَيْكُمْ مِنْهُمْ، وَأَتَقَرَّبُ إِلىٰ اللّٰهِ ثُمَّ إِلَيْكُمْ بِـمُوَالاَتِكُمْ وَمُوَالاَةِ وَلِيِّكُمْ، وَبِالْبَرَاءَةِ مِنْ أَعْدَائِكُمْ، وَالنَّاصِبِينَ لَكُمُ الْـحَرْبَ، وَبِالْبَرَاءَةِ مِنْ أَشْيَاعِهِمْ وَأَتْبَاعِهِمْ، I disassociate myself from them through Allah and through all of you and I seek nearness to Allah and then to you through love for you and your friends and disassociation with your enemies and from those who want to fight against you and disassociation from their adherents and followers. إِنِّي سِلْمٌ لـِمَنْ سَالَـمَكُمْ، وَحَرْبٌ لِـمَنْ حَارَبَكُمْ، وَوَلِيٌّ لـِمَنْ وَالاَكُمْ، وَعَدُوٌّ لِـمَنْ عَادَاكُمْ Surely I am at peace with those who are at peace with you and I am at war with those who are at war with you and I am a friends to those who are friends to you and I am an enemy to those who are enemies to you. فَأَسْأَلُ اللّٰهَ الَّذِي أَكْرَمَنِي بِـمَعْرِفَتِكُمْ، وَمَعْرِفَةِ أَوْلِيَآئِكُمْ، وَرَزَقَنِي الْبَرَاءَةَ مِنْ أَعْدَائِكُمْ، أَنْ يَـجْعَلَنِي مَعَكُمْ فِي الدُّنْيَا وَالآخِرَةِ، وَأَنْ يُثَبِّتَ لِي عِنْدَكُمْ قَدَمَ صِدْقٍ فِي الدُّنْيَا وَالآخِرَةِ، So then I ask Allah who has honoured me with a cognizance of all of you and a cognizance of your friends that He also grant me the opportunity to disassociate myself from your enemies and that He place me with you – both in the transient world and also in the next life – and that he make me firm in your presence with a truthful stance both in the transient world and also the next life. وَأَسْأَلُهُ أَنْ يُبَلِّغَنِي الْـمَقامَ الْـمَحْمُودَ لَكُمْ عِنْدَ اللّٰهِ، وَأَنْ يَرْزُقَنِي طَلَبَ ثَارِي مَعَ إِمَامِ هُدىً ظَاهِرٍ نَاطِقٍ بِالْـحَقِّ مِنْكُمْ And I ask Him (Allah) that He enables me to reach to the honoured station with you in the presence of Allah and that He grant me the ability to seek the revenge of you with the rightly guided Imam from you, who shall surely come and speak the truth. وَأَسْأَلُ اللّٰهَ بِـحَقِّكُمْ وَبِالشَّأْنِ الَّذِي لَكُمْ عِنْدَهُ أَنْ يُعْطِيَنِي بِـمُصَابِي بِكُمْ أَفْضَلَ مَا يُعْطِي مُصَاباً بِـمُصِيبَتِهِ، مُصِيبَةً مَا أَعْظَمَها وَأَعْظَمَ رَزِيَّتَهَا فِي الإِسْلاَمِ وَفِي جَمِيعِ السَّمٰوَاتِ وَالأَرْضِ And I ask Allah for your sake and for the status and rank which you have with Him that He grant me that thing due to me showing grief and sorrow at your sorrows even more than of that which he gives in a person’s own grief and sorrows, and what great sorrow and tragedies you faced! How great was your tragedy for Islam and for all of the inhabitants of the heavens and the Earth! أَللّٰهُمَّ اجْعَلْنِي فِي مَقَامِي هٰذَا مـِمَّنْ تَنَالُهُ مِنْكَ صَلَواتٌ وَرَحْمَةٌ وَمَغْفِرَةٌ، O’ Allah! Make me at this moment, one who receives from You prayers, mercy and forgiveness. أَللّٰهُمَّ اجْعَلْ مَـحْيَايَ مَـحْيَا مُحَمَّدٍ وَآلِ مُحَمَّدٍ، وَمَـمَاتِي مَـمَاتَ مُحَمَّدٍ وَآلِ مُحَمَّدٍ O’ Allah! Make me live the life of Muhammad and the family of Muhammad and permit me to die the death of Muhammad and the family of Muhammad. أَللّٰهُمَّ إِنَّ هٰذَا يَوْمٌ تَبَرَّكَتْ بِهِ بَنُو أُمَيَّةَ وَابْنُ آكِلَةِ الأَكْبَادِ، اللَّعِينُ ابْنُ اللَّعِينِ عَلىٰ لِسَانِكَ وَلِسَانِ نَبِيِّكَ فِي كُلِّ مَوْطِنٍ وَمَوْقِفٍ وَقَفَ فِيهِ نَبِيُّكَ O’ Allah! This is the day (the Day of ‘Ashura) which the Bani Umayyah rejoiced upon (and is the day when the) son of the liver eater (the son of Hind b. Abu Sufyan – Mu’awiyah and his son Yazid) celebrated, the cursed son(s) (Yazid) of the cursed (Mu’awiyah), as said by You and Your Prophet at every place and occasion. أَللّٰهُمَّ الْعَنْ أَبَا سُفْيَانَ وَمُعَاوِيَةَ وَيَزِيدَ بْنَ مُعَاوِيَةَ عَلَيْهِمْ مِنْكَ اللَّعْنَةُ أَبَدَ الأَبِدِينَ، وَهٰذَا يَوْمٌ فَرِحَتْ بِهِ آلُ زِيَادٍ وَآلُ مَرْوَانَ بِقَتْلِهِمُ الْـحُسَيْنَ صَلَواتُ اللّٰهِ عَلَيْهِ. أَللّٰهُمَّ فَضَاعِفْ عَلَيْهِمُ اللَّعْنَ مِنْكَ وَالْعَذابَ الأَلِيمَ O’ Allah! Curse Abu Sufyan and Mu’awiyah and Yazid b. Mu’awiyah – upon them may Your curse be forever and eternity. And this is the day when the family of Ziyad were happy and so were the family of Marwan at their killing of Husayn, may the Prayers of Allah be upon him. O’ Allah! Increase upon them Your curse and (Your) painful punishment. أَللّٰهُمَّ إِنِّي أَتَقَرَّبُ إِلَيْكَ فِي هٰذَا الْيَوْمِ، وَفِي مَوْقِفِي هٰذَا، وَأَيَّامِ حَيَاتِي بِالْبَرَاءَةِ مِنْهُمْ، وَاللَّعْنَةِ عَلَيْهِمْ، وَبِالْـمُوَالاَةِ لِنَبِيِّكَ وَآلِ نَبِيِّكَ عَلَيْهِ وَعَلَيْهِمُ السَّلاَمُ O’ Allah! Surely I seek nearness to you on this day (the Day of ‘Ashura) and in this place (which I am in) and in all days of my life by disassociating myself from these people and sending curses upon them and through my love and friendship to Your Prophet and the family of Your Prophet, peace be upon him and upon all of them. أَللّٰهُمَّ الْعَنْ أَوَّلَ ظَالِمٍ ظَلَمَ حَقَّ مُحَمَّدٍ وَآلِ مُحَمَّدٍ وَآخِرَ تَابِعٍ لَهُ عَلىٰ ذٰلِكَ. أَللّٰهُمَّ الْعَنِ الْعِصَابَةَ الَّتِي جَاهَدَتِ الْـحُسَيْنَ وَشَايَعَتْ وَبَايَعَتْ وَتَابَعَتْ عَلىٰ قَتْلِهِ، أَللّٰهُمَّ الْعَنْهُمْ جَمِيعاً. O’ Allah! Curse the first tyrant who oppressed the right of Muhammad and the family of Muhammad and the next person who followed him on this path. O’ Allah! Curse the group who fought against Husayn and those who followed them and supported them and assisted them in killing him. O’ Allah, curse all of them! أَلسَّلاَمُ عَلَيْكَ يَا أَبَا عَبْدِ اللّٰهِ وَعَلىٰ الأَرْوَاحِ الَّتِي حَلَّتْ بِفِنَآئِكَ، عَلَيْكَ مِنِّي سَلاَمُ اللّٰهِ أَبَداً مَا بَقِيتُ وَبَقِيَ اللَّيْلُ وَالنَّهَارُ، وَلاَ جَعَلَهُ اللّٰهُ آخِرَ الْعَهْدِ مِنِّي لِزِيَارَتِكُمْ، أَلسَّلاَمُ عَلىٰ الْـحُسَيْنِ، وَعَلىٰ عَلِيِّ بْنِ الْـحُسَيْنِ، وَعَلىٰ أَوْلاَدِ الْـحُسَيْنِ، وَعَلىٰ أَصْحَابِ الْـحُسَيْنِ. Peace be upon you O’ Aba ‘Abdillah and upon the souls which were annihilated with you. Upon you, from me, is the peace of Allah for eternity, as long as the night and the day remain and please do not make this (Ziyarat) as my last contact with you. Greetings be upon Husayn, and upon ‘Ali the son of Husayn and upon the children of Husayn and upon the companions of Husayn. أَللّٰهُمَّ خُصَّ أَنْتَ أَوَّلَ ظالِمٍ بِاللَّعْنِ مِنِّي، وَابْدَأْ بِهِ أَوَّلاً، ثُمَّ الْعَنِ الثَّانِيَ وَالثَّالِثَ وَالرَّابِعَ. أَللّٰهُمَّ الْعَنْ يَزِيدَ خَامِساً، وَالْعَنْ عُبَيْدَ اللّٰه ِبْنَ زِيادٍ وَابْنَ مَرْجَانَةَ وَعُمَرَ بْنَ سَعْدٍ وَشِـمْراً وَآلَ أَبِي سُفْيَانَ وَآلَ زِيَادٍ وَآلَ مَرْوَانَ إِلىٰ يَوْمِ الْقِيَامَةِ O’ Allah! Particularly curse the first tyrant, a curse from me, and begin the first curse with him and then send the curse on the second and the third and then the forth (tyrant). O’ Allah curse Yazid, the fifth (tyrant) and curse ‘Ubaydullah b. Ziyad and Ibne Marjanah and ‘‘Umar b. Sa’d and Shimr and the family of Sufyan and the family of Ziyad and the family of Marwan until the day of Judgement. Then go to Sajdah and recite.. أَللّٰهُمَّ لَكَ الْـحَمْدُ حَمْدَ الشَّاكِرِينَ لَكَ عَلىٰ مُصَابِهِمْ. أَلْـحَمْدُ لِلّٰهِ عَلىٰ عَظِيمِ رَزِيَّتِي. أَللّٰهُمَّ ارْزُقْنِي شَفَاعَةَ الْـحُسَيْنِ يَوْمَ الْوُرُودِ، وَ ثَبِّتْ لِي قَدَمَ صِدْقٍ عِنْدَكَ مَعَ الْـحُسَيْنِ وَأَصْحَابِ الْـحُسَيْنِ الَّذِينَ بَذَلُوا مُهَجَهُمْ دُونَ الْحُسَيْنِ˛ عَلَيْهِ السَّلاَمُ O’ Allah! To you belongs the praise, the praise of those who are thankful to You for their tribulations. All Praise belongs to Allah for my intense grief. O’ Allah, grant me the blessing of intercession of Husayn on the Day of Appearance (before You) and strengthen me with a truthful stand in Your presence along with Husayn and the companions of Husayn – those people who sacrificed everything for Husayn, peace be upon him.
  24. Safwan (r.a) narrates that Hazrat Jibraeel (a.s.) conveyed this Ziyarat to Holy Prophet (s.a.w.a.) on divine command. What is important at this point is to appreciate that this Ziyarat is Hadithe Qudsi and it has reached Imam Baqir (a.s.) through his noble ancestors who received it from Holy Prophet (s.a.w.a). Imam Baqir (a.s.) made ‘public’ this Ziyaarat for the first time. This is because like all other divine laws that were delayed, the delay in the communication of Ziyarate Aashoora in the public domain also had a divine rationale.
