Now kiss the holy grave and place your right cheek on the grave, then place your left cheek upon it, circle the grave and kiss all around it. Shaykh Mufeed (a.r.) says: After this go to the grave of Ali bin Husain (a.s.) and standing at his grave recite:

Peace be upon you; O the veracious, the pure,

The immaculate, the dear, the favorite,

The son of the basil of Allah’s Messenger.

Peace be upon you; as you are steadfast martyr;

Allah’s mercy and blessings be upon you.

How noble is your position and how honorable is your seat.

I bear witness that Allah thanked you for your efforts,

And He magnified your rewards,

And he joined you to the exalted summit

Where there is the entire honor

In the elevated chambers.

Similarly, He had bestowed upon you and made you one of the Household of the Prophet

From whom Allah removed filth and whom He purified with thorough purification.

Allah’s blessings and mercy and benedictions and pleasure be upon you.

So, O the pure master; (please) intercede for me before your Lord

So that He may unburden and relieve me from the loads (of sins) that I carry on my back.

And (please) have mercy upon my humbleness and submission to you and to the master, your father. May Allah bless you both. 

Touch your body to the purified grave and say:

May Allah increase your honor in the Hereafter

In the same way as He honored you in this world

And may He bless you in the same way as He blessed others on account of you.

And I bear witness that you are the signposts of the religion

And the stars of the worlds.

Peace and Allah’s mercy and blessings be upon you 

After this turn your attention to the other martyrs of Kerbala and say:

Peace be upon you (all); O the supporters of Allah

And the supporters of His Messenger,

And the supporters of `Al¢ ibn Ab¢-±¡lib

And the supporters of F¡§imah,

And the supporters of al-°asan and al-°usayn,

And the supporters of Islam.

I bear witness that you indeed did sincerely for the sake of Allah,

And you strove sincerely in His way.

So, may Allah reward you on behalf of Islam and its people with the best of rewarding.

By Allah I swear, you did win a great success.

I whish I were with you so that I would win a great success.

I bear witness that you are alive with your Lord, receiving sustenance.

I bear witness that you are the true martyrs and the true happy ones.

And you are the winners in the most elevated ranks.

Peace and Allah’s mercy and blessings be upon you 

After this come back and stand at the head of the Imam's grave and pray 2 rakat like fajr Namaz-e-Ziarat and pray for self, the parents and other believers.

You may then kiss the holy tomb and put your right and then your left cheeks on it. You may then circumambulate it and kiss it from the four sides.

Shaykh al-Muf¢d adds: You may then direct towards the tomb of `Al¢ ibn al-°usayn, stop there, and say the following words:

السَّلاَمُ عَلَيْكَ ايُّهَا ٱلصِّدِّيقُ ٱلطَّيِّبُ

alssal¡mu `alayka ayyuh¡ al¥¥idd¢qu al§§ayyibu

I bear witness that Allah thanked you for your efforts,

وَالْحَقَكَ بِٱلذَّرْوَةِ ٱلْعَالِيَةِ

wa al¦aqaka bildhdharwati al`¡liyati

and joined you to the exalted summit

حَيْثُ ٱلشَّرَفُ كُلُّ ٱلشَّرَفِ

¦aythu alshsharafu kullu alshsharafi

where there is the entire honor

وَفِي ٱلْغُرَفِ ٱلسَّامِيَةِ

wa f¢ alghurafi alss¡miyati

in the elevated chambers.

كَمَا مَنَّ عَلَيْكَ مِنْ قَبْلُ وَجَعَلَكَ مِنْ اهْلِ ٱلبَيْتِ

kam¡ manna `alayka min qablu wa ja`alaka min ahli albayti

Similarly, He had bestowed upon you and made you one of the members of the Household of the Prophet

ٱلَّذِينَ اذْهَبَ ٱللَّهُ عَنْهُمُ ٱلرِّجْسَ وَطَهَّرَهُمْ تَطْهِيراً

so that He may unburden and relieve me from the loads (of sins) that I carry on my back.

وَٱرْحَمْ ذُلِّي وَخُضُوعِي لَكَ وَلِلسَّيِّدِ ابِيكَ صَلَّىٰ ٱللَّهُ عَلَيْكُمَا

war¦am dhull¢ wa khu¤£`¢ laka wa lilssayyidi ab¢ka ¥all¡ all¡hu `alaykum¡

And (please) have mercy upon my humbleness and submission to you and to the master, your father. May Allah bless you both.

You may then throw yourself on the tomb and say the following words:

زَادَ ٱللَّهُ فِي شَرَفِكُمْ فِي ٱلآخِرَةِ

z¡da all¡hu f¢ sharafikum f¢ al-¡khirati

May Allah increase your honor in the Hereafter

كَمَا شَرَّفَكُمْ فِي ٱلدُّنْيَا

in the same way as He honored you in this world

وَاسْعَدَكُمْ كَمَا اسْعَدَ بِكُمْ

and may He bless you in the same way as He blessed others on account of you.

وَاشْهَدُ انَّكُمْ اعْلاَمُ ٱلدِّينِ

wa ashhadu annakum a`l¡mu aldd¢ni

And I bear witness that you are the signposts of the religion

I bear witness that you indeed did sincerely for the sake of Allah

وَجَاهَدْتُمْ فِي سَبِيلِهِ

wa alssal¡mu `alaykum wa ra¦matu all¡hi wa barak¡tuh£

Peace and Allah’s mercy and blessings be upon you.

You may then return to the side of the Imam’s head to offer the (two-unit) prayer of ziy¡rah and pray Almighty Allah for yourself, your parents, and your brethren-in-faith.

It is worth mentioning that Sayyid Ibn ±¡w£s has mentioned a form of ziy¡rah of `Al¢ al-Akbar (the elder son of Imam al-°usayn) and the other martyrs mentioning them by names. However, I will not cite this form hereinwith because of its lengthiness.
