Jun 23, 2020 · 7 min read 


Start with the holiest name of ALLAH the Mericful the Magnificent'.

In Hadith of  tablet ALLAH the almighty explicitly clarifies that, I have ordained HUSSAIN (AS) the treasurer of my revelations and I elevated him with greatness and  dignified him with the conclusion of felicity, and assigned for him the highest rank upon all martyrs. His rank is the highest above them all, I have appointed him as my complete verdict. I have deposited him my expressive argumentum. ( proof )  By his family members I will give the rewards and punishment. The source of Hadith is Kulaini, Mohammad, Osoolul Kaafi, Volume 2 P 527 to 528,

وَجَعَلْتُ حُسَیناً خازِنَ وَحیی وَ أَکْرَمْتُهُ بِالشَّهادَهِ وَ خَتَمْتُ لَهُ بِالسَّعادَهِ، فَهُوَ أَفْضَلُ مَنِ اسْتُشْهِدَ وَ أَرْفَعُ الشُّهَداءِ دَرَجَهً وَ جَعَلْتُ کَلِمَتِی التَّامَّهَ مَعَهُ وَ حُجَّتِی الْبالِغَهَ عِنْدَهُ، بِعِتْرَتِهِ أُثیبُ وَ أُعاقِبُ؛   ​​

خداوند عز وجل در حدیث لوح بسیار به وضوح میفرماید من حسین علیه السلام را خازن وحی خویش قرار دادم واورا باشهادتش کرامت بخشیدم ‌پایانی باسعادت برای وی مقرر داشتم او برترین شهیدان ‌و درجه آش از همه والا تر است کلمه ای تامه ی خودرا همرا ی او قراردادم ‌و حجت بالغه ( رسای) خویش را نزدش نهادم وبه وسیله ی خاندان او پاداش ‌و کیفر می‌دهم

Furthermore ALLAH the almighty says in the Holy QURA’N about Hajj;


فِيهِ آيَاتٌ بَيِّنَاتٌ مَقَامُ إِبْرَاهِيمَ ۖ وَمَنْ دَخَلَهُ كَانَ آمِنًا ۗ وَلِلَّهِ عَلَى النَّاسِ حِجُّ الْبَيْتِ مَنِ اسْتَطَاعَ إِلَيْهِ سَبِيلًا ۚ وَمَنْ كَفَرَ فَإِنَّ اللَّهَ غَنِيٌّ عَنِ الْعَالَمِينَ 
سوره مبارکه آل عمران آیه ۹۷  

In it (KA’BA) are manifest the signs of ALLAH (and) IBRAHAM’S Station, and whoever enters they shall be secure, and it is the duty of mankind toward ALLAH to make pilgrimage to the House – for those who can afford the journey to it, and should anyone renege {on his obligation} ALLAH is indeed without the need of creatures.    
There is a narration that whoever touch the Quilt of KA’BA, as he or she had touched the hand of ALLAH and whoever look at the Quilt of KA’BA like he or she looked to the face of ALLAH the almighty. ( It is metaphorical assumption ALLAH SWT has no limbs) On every one the Hajj become due (wajib) in case he or she renege, on the time of death, the angel of death hit him or her  in the face saying you do not have the right to die as a Muslim either die as a Jewish or Christian. But the Ziyaarath (pilgrims) of IMAM HUSSAIN (AS) is equal to one thousand accepted Hajj and one thousand pious Umrah. We apologize for not being able to upload the Arabic text anymore because of prolongation. Please read the detail below. 

74 thousand Angels accompany the Zaair (Visitor) of HUSSAIN (AS)’S Shrine.   

There is a narration that while IMAM HUSSAIN (AS)’S Zaair the visitor {who visits his shrine} the Lady FATIMAT UZ ZAHRA (SA) the chief of women of the world and paradise from the beginning until the end would welcome him or her and pray for them.  Quoted by IMAM SADIQ (AS). Source of Hadith Kaamil uz ziyaaraath P118. The ALLAH the Almighty creates 74 thousand Angels for him or her, until he or she in Karbala they do offer prayers to ALLAH and make Ziyaarath, then devote for the Zaair. While the Zaair goes to Najaf they escort the Zaair to Najaf, they return and they escort them back to Karbala, and have the same routine to offer prayers, do the Ziyaarath and devote for them. After the Zaair finishing the Ziyaarath the 74 thousand Angels on top of them Gabriel, Michael, and Israfil (Seraph) escort them to their home and to address him or her, “Oh the saint of ALLAH you are forgiven. Swear on God you will not be seen the Hell Fire, and the Hell Fire will not be seen you.” Therefore, the Angels return to Karbala to offer prayers doing Ziyaarath and  devote to him or her up until he or she dies. While they died then they Angeles participate in their burial. Offering funeral prayers for him or her. After finishing the funeral procession, the Angels ask ALLAH Almighty “Oh ALLAH your servant the Zaair of HUSSAIN (AS) has passed away. Are we free now?” ALLAH commands them stay around his or her grave to offer prayers in front of me until the day of judgment, and devote for him or her.

Quotation of MOHAMMAD (SAWS) about the rewards of HUSSAIN (AS)’S Ziyaarath, visits. 

Abdullah the son of Abbas says I had entered to the court of the last holy PROPHET (SAW), while I saw IMAM HASSAN (AS) was on his shoulder and IMAM HUSSAIN (AS) was on his knees and the PROPHET (SAW) had been kissing them, saying “Oh ALLAH love those whom love them, be the enemy of those whom do animosity with them. Then he (PBUH) said, Oh the son Abbas perhaps I am seeing ABA ABDULLH AL HUSSAIN (AS) that his beard is colored from his blood and he call the people for help, but they are not helping him. I offered my question what type of people do not help him. He (PBUH) said the villains and the worse of my Nation. What happened to them he said? ALLAH Almighty would not reach my intercession to them. Oh, the son of Abbas whoever with insight and knowledge to his rights does Ziyaarath (visit) him, there would be written for him or her one thousand Hajj and one thousand pious Umrah, and whoever does Ziyaarath of  him, does Ziyaarath of me, like they do Ziyaarath of ALLAH the Almighty, and the rights of Zaair upon ALLAH is that, that they would not excruciate in the HellFire.” Source of Hadith Kkazaaz Raazi Ali ibn Mohammad kifaayatal asar fin nas alal ai’immah al isnaa ashareeyah Ashar P 24.         

Narration from sixth IMAM JA’FAR U SSADIQ (AS). Swear on ALLAH if the people would know the virtues and the knowledge of IMAM HUSSAIN (AS)’S Ziyaarath (pilgrims) I was talking to you categorically you were leaving the Hajj. None of you would not gone to Hajj. Unless you don’t know ALLAH the almighty before had taken the Makka as HIS Shrine, HE the SWT took the KARBALA as HIS peace and blessed Shrine. Son of Abi Ya’Foor asked “Oh the son of RASOOL ALLAH, may ALLAH'S peace and blessings be upon you  ALLAH the almighty had made mandatory (Wajib) the pilgrimage of HIS House upon people, While HE the SWT did not mention the Ziyaarath of HUSSAIN (AS). Yes, although it is like this, because that is the thing which ALLAH had ordained like this. Whether you heard the words of IMAM ALI (AS) he said that indeed the sole of feet (metatarsus) are deserving of anointment in proportion to the face of feet.  Don’t you know that to wear the pilgrim’s Garb was batter in Shrine, but ALLAH the almighty ordered wearing the pilgrim’s Garb outside of the Shrine. Source of Hadith wsaa’il ash shia chapter 14 P 514.” 

Whomsoever perform Ziyaarath of HUSSAIN (AS). For them would be the reward of one thousand accepted Hajj and a thousand Umrah with forgiveness of all sins, freeing thousand servants, the reward of a thousand martyrs and rewards of thousand charity given. 

Narration from IMAM JAFAR SADIQ (AS) he says “anyone who would be on the day of  (Aashoora) on the 10th day of Muharram (visit) do Ziyaarath of IMAM AL HUSSAIN (AS)’S Shrine as he or she made pilgrimage to ALLAH on the throne.” Source of Hadith, Musthadrak ul wasaail volume 10 P 292.  

Another narration from IMAM MOHAMMAD BAQIR (AS), he says anyone who does Ziyaarath of the Shrine of IMAM AL HUSSAIN (AS) on the night of 15th of Sha’baan the Islamic calendar, ALLAH Almighty whatsoever of sins they have sent forth and how much will be sent, the past and future sins of them would be forgiven. Whoever to do Ziyaarath (to visit) his Shrine on the 10th day of Muharram Aashoora ALLAH Almighty write for him or her one thousand accepted Hajj and one thousand pious umrah, and whoever do Ziyaarath him on the day of Aashoora the same as he or she has visited the ALLAH the Omnipotent above the throne, Source of Hadith, Shaikh hoor Aamili - Wasaail ush shia volume 14 P 469. Kaamil uz ziyaaraath volume1 P147. 

Another Narration from IMAM MOHAMMAD BAQIR (AS), he says in case if the people would have known that how much the Ziyaarath of IMAM HUSSAIN (AS) has virtues and rewards, indeed because of delight and zeal they would have died and their soul because of regret would have being stopped. I asked Oh, the son of RASOOL ALLAH how much virtues and rewards does it have? He said whoever with the delight and zeal do Ziayaarath of IMAM HUSSAIN (AS). ALLAH (SWT) would write for him or her  one thousand accepted Hajj and one thousand pious Umrah and the rewards of a thousand martyrs from the martyrs of Uhood and the rewards of a thousand fasting men or women, and the rewards of a thousand accepted charity given, and the rewards of one thousand servants to be freed, which would be according to the will and wish of ALLAH (SWT) are to be write for them. Source of Hadith Wasaail ash shia volume 14 P 453.  

(Clarifications) Dear readers in the text there some delicacies which are to have kept in mind that the Wahaabism always accuses the righteous religion of AHLULBAYT (AMS)  the Shia of committing polytheism. We have used the word pilgrimage; the word pilgrimage is used for 7 shoth of revolving and rotating around Kaaba during the Hajj and we have used the word visit in bracket. They are just because of readers understanding. The actual and accurate terminology is the Ziyaarath which we don’t have in English. Not pilgrimage nor visit are appropriate terminologies of the HUSSAIN (AS)’S Ziyaarath, because Ziyaarath has a comprehensive meaning and special  etiquette. We INSHAALAH will upload (Who is HUSSAIN (AS) also the definition of what or who are immaculates or infallibles because most of the Narrations are given from MOHAMMAD (PBUH) and his holy progeny beside command of ALLAH. That the sayings of AHLULBAYT (AS) are the saying of ALLAH (SWT). sponsored by the AHLULBAYT (AS) Foundation international.
