Merits Be it known to you that the traditions that are reported from the Ahl al-Bayt the Immaculate and infallible about the merits and advantages of visiting Imam al-°usayn (`a) on the `Araf¡t Day are innumerable.

Bash¢r al-Dahh¡n, through a valid chain of authority, has reported that he, once, said to Imam al-¯¡diq (`a), “Some years, I miss the ¦ajj season; therefore, I present myself at the tomb of al-°usayn (`a).” The Imam (`a) commented, “Well done, Bash¢r! Any faithful believer who comes to the tomb of al-°usayn, Allah’s blessings be upon him, with full recognition of his real position on a day other than the feast days, he shall be granted the reward of twenty times of admissible and acceptable ¦ajj and twenty times of admissible and acceptable `umrah as well as the reward of participation in twenty campaigns with a commissioned prophet or a decent leader. Moreover, whoever comes to his (i.e. Imam al-°usayn) tomb on the `Araf¡t Day, with full recognition of his real position, will be granted the reward of one thousand times of admissible and acceptable ¦ajj and one thousand times of admissible and acceptable `umrah as well as the reward of participating in one thousand campaigns with a commissioned prophet or a decent leader.”

Bash¢r said, “What shall I be awarded if I present myself at Mount `Araf¡t on that day?”

Somewhat angrily, the Imam (`a) looked at him and said, “Bash¢r, if a faithful believer comes to the tomb of al-°usayn, Allah’s blessings be upon him, on the `Araf¡t Day, washes himself with the water of the River Euphrates, and then turns his face for visiting him, Almighty Allah shall record for him the reward of an entire ¦ajj along with all of its rituals for every step he makes.”

The reporter then added, “Most probably, the Imam (`a) added to this the reward of an entire `umrah (or campaign, according to another form of this report).”

According to many validly reported traditions, on the `Araf¡t Day, Almighty Allah looks at the visitors of Imam al-°usayn’s tomb with mercy before He looks at those gathering on `Araf¡t Mountain.([1])

According to another validly reported tradition, Raf¡`ah reported that Imam al-¯¡diq (`a) once asked him, “Did you go on ¦ajj this year?”

Raf¡`ah answered, “May Allah accept me as ransom for you! I did not have enough resources to go to ¦ajj. Rather, I could present myself at the tomb of al-°usayn (`a).”

The Imam (`a) commented, “Raf¡`ah, you have thus not failed to gain what those who presented themselves at Min¡ have gained! Were it not for that I do not want people to desert going on ¦ajj, I would pass on to you a discourse that if you hear it, you will never leave visiting the tomb of al-°usayn, Allah’s blessings be upon you.”

The Imam (`a) then paused for a while and then continued, “My father has told me that whoever travels to the tomb of al-°usayn (`a) recognizing his actual position and showing no pride, will be accompanied by one thousand angels on his right side and one thousand angels on his left. The reward of one thousand times of ¦ajj and one thousand times of `umrah with a prophet or a prophet’s successor will also be recorded for him.”

 

Method The method of visiting Imam al-°usayn’s tomb on the `Araf¡t Day, according to the words of master scholars and chiefs of our sect and faith, is as follows:

If you intend to visit Imam al-°usayn (on the `Araf¡t Day), you may bathe yourself using water from the River Euphrates if possible and any other possibly obtained water. You may then put on the purest (and cleanest) of your clothes and walk towards the holy shrine with tranquility and solemnity. When you reach the gate of the holy shrine (i.e. °¡'ir), you may profess Almighty Allah’s most greatness:

Allah is the Most Great.

all¡hu akbaru

اللَّهُ اكْبَرُ

Then, say the following words:

Allah is the Most Great of all.

all¡hu akbaru kab¢ran

اللَّهُ اكْبَرُ كَبِيراً

All praise be to Allah very much.

We would not have been guided if Allah had not guided us.

wa m¡ kunn¡ linahtadiya lawl¡ an had¡n¡ all¡hu

وَمَا كُنَّا لِنَهْتَدِيَ لَوْلاَ انْ هَدَانَا ٱللَّهُ

The messengers of our Lord have indeed come with the truth.

You may then return to the side of Imam al-°usayn’s head and pray as frequently as possible for yourself, your family members, and your brethren-in-faith.

بِافْضَلِ مَا يَنْقَلِبُ بِهِ احَدٌ

in the name of Your mercy, O most merciful of all those who show mercy.

You may then kiss the tomb and offer there the prayer of ziy¡rah as well as any other prayer you wish to offer. When you intend to bid farewell to him, you may say the words that have been previously cited at bidding farewell. These words begin with the following statement:

اَلسَّلاَمُ عَلَيْكَ وَرَحْمَةُ ٱللَّهِ وَبَرَكَاتُهُ

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

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

اسْتَوْدِعُكَ ٱللَّهَ وَاسْتَرْعِيكَ وَاقْرَا عَلَيْكَ ٱلسَّلاَمَ…

astawdi`uka all¡ha wa astar`¢ka wa aqra'u `alayka alssal¡ma…

I entrust you with Allah and ask Him to keep you under His custody, and to send blessings upon you…


 

([1]) Visiting Imam al-°usayn’s tomb is a voluntary act, but going on °ajj is obligatory, yet on certain conditions. It goes without saying that to do a voluntary act, after having performed the obligatory, brings about more rewards. [translator]

Peace be on you, O the son of Fatimah Zahra!

Peace be on you, O the son of Ali Al Murtaza!

Peace be on you, O the son of Khadijah Kubra!

Peace be on you, O he whose blood-claimer is Allah,

He is the blood-claimer of your father also, as those who persecuted you, your relatives and friends have not been punished for their crimes. I bear witness that, verily, you established the prayers, gave the prescribed share to the needy, commanded to do that which is right and lawful, not to do that which is wrong and unlawful, and sincerely served Allah, till the inevitable came unto you. So, curse of Allah be on those who killed you, curse of Allah be on those who persecuted you, curse of Allah be on those who heard all this and rested satisfied.

O my Mawlaa!

O Aba Abdillah!

I call Allah to bear witness, and also His Angels, His Prophets, His Messengers, that I believe in you, and I am sure of your return,

(I follow you) in the matter of my religious performances, day-to-day conduct, and “returning to the Creator”. Blessings of Allah be on your souls and bodies, (when) you are in view (when) you are out of sight, on your style, on your substance.

Peace be on you, O the son of the Last Prophet, the son of the first successor, the Imam of the God-fearing, the son of the leader of the riders who will urge their white-footed horses unto the blissful land of Paradise.

How it is not possible? You are the gateway to guidance, the pious Imam, the safe handle, the decisive proof (of Allah) for the mankind, one of the five people of “Kisa” the hands of Mercy fed you, the bosom of Faith nursed you, the genius of Islam trained you, frankly I am very unhappy on account of your departure, (because) there is no doubt that you are alive. Blessings of Allah be on you, and on your forefathers, and on your descendants.

Peace be on you, O he who bathed in tears, troubles, in regular rotation, surrounded you. Curse of Allah be on those who deemed it lawful to do away with your sanctity, then killed you. Blessings of Allah, harnessed and bridled, be on you, the Messenger of Allah (blessings of Allah be on him and on his children) is your blood-claimer and the book of Allah is renounced (when) you (the part of parcel of it) are lost. Peace be on you, on your grandfather on your father, on your mother, on your brother, on the Imams, in your progeny on the martyrs, martyred with you, on the angels, who surround your holy grave, and on those visitors who are here to perform your “Ziyaarat” and say “let it be so” for your follower’s prayers.

Peace be on you, and mercy and blessings of Allah be on you, My father and mother are at your disposal O the son of the Messenger of Allah! My father and mother are at your disposal O Aba Abdillah! Indeed terrible was the calamity, and your suffering casts gloom upon us, and upon all the people of the earth and the heavens, so, curse of Allah be on those who saddled and bridled their horses, gave reins, and got ready to fight against you.

O my Mawlaa!

O Aba Abdillah!

I move towards your “Haram”, I have reached your resting abode, I beseech Allah in the name of privileges you enjoy before Him, in the name of the position you occupy near Him, to send blessings on Muhammad and on his children, and let me be with you  in this world and in the Hereafter, as a favour, bestowed upon me through His generosity and kindness.
