Dr. Muhammad Hadi, son of Ayatullah Allama Amini Najafi (author of the acclaimed book Al-Ghadeer), writes that he saw his father in a dream, four years after his expiry. This incident was in the year 1394 A.H.

On Thursday, at the time of dawn. His father seemed very happy and joyful. I advanced, saluted my father, and kissed his hand. I asked, ‘Which action have you performed that has gladdened you so much and made you so prosperous.’

He said, ‘What did you say?’

I repeated, ‘Which action have you performed that has gladdened you so much and made you so prosperous. Was it compilation of the book Al-Ghadeer, or some other book, or initiating the library in the name of Amir al Muminin ((عليه السلام).)?’

He replied, ‘I don’t follow what you mean, please explain your query more clearly.’

I replied, ‘Father, you have departed for the everlasting abode. What religious obligation or service has been the source of your salvation?’

Incidents About Allama Amini (رضي الله عنه)

My father, after pondering over my question, replied, ‘My son, it is only and only the Ziyarat of Sayyadush Shohada, Imam Husayn ((عليه السلام).).’

I said, ‘Father, you must be aware of the ongoing war between Iran and Iraq, due to which all contacts between the two nations have ceased. Ziyarat of Karbala has now become impossible for us.’

He said, ‘Participate in the gatherings and assemblies of Imam Husayn ((عليه السلام).). You will get the same reward as Ziyarat of Imam Husayn ((عليه السلام).). My son, I have said this to you many times before this, and I am telling you about it even now and my son, never ever abandon the recitation of Ziyarat Ashura. Consider its recitation as your most important duty, and give it the rightful place in your life. The effects of its recitation are the means of salvation in this world and the hereafter. I am hopeful for your duas.’

Allamah Amini’s son writes, ‘My father despite his busy schedule used to recite Ziyarat Ashura, and used to recommend this Ziyarat to others as well. That is why I have been persistently reciting this Ziyarat for the past thirty years.’
