Imam Jafar Sadiq (peace be upon him) recounts, ‘O Safwaan! When you are confronted with some adversity, then seek redressal of your grievances from Imam Hussain (peace be upon him) through the Aamaal of Ashura. Allah has pledged the fulfillment of demands with this Ziarat and Allah never reneges on His word’.
Hardships and afflictions no matter how severe, can be remedied by reciting Ziarate Ashura for forty successive days. Records of people’s experiences actually testify to the authenticity of this tradition. Renowned Shia scholars have recited this Ziarat regularly. They have reaped incalculable benefits through its recitation and have always resorted to it in moments of distress. There are many such miracles but have quoted just one which is related to the disease spread among the people and which shows the significance of Ziyarat e Ashura.
"And if Allah should touch you with affliction, none can remove it save He; and if He intends for you good, none can hold back His Bounty. He causes it to reach whomsoever He wills among His servants. And He is the Forgiving, the Merciful." (Yunus, 10:107)
"And were you to ask them, 'Who created the heavens and the earth?' They would surely say, 'Allah.' Say, ‘Then have you considered what you invoke besides Allah? Should Allah desire some harm for me, can they remove His Harm? Or, should He desire some mercy for me, can they withhold His Mercy?’ Say, ‘Allah is sufficient for me. In Him, let the trusting put their trust.’" (al-Zumar, 39:38)
"Say, ‘Allah is sufficient for me. There is no god except Him. In Him, I put my trust, and He is the Lord of the Great Throne. I seek protection in Allah's Power and Strength from that of others, and I ask the intercession of the Lord of the Daybreak from the evil of what He has created. I seek refuge in what Allah wills; there is no power except with Allah, the Exalted, the Magnificent.'"
Duaa from Tibb al Aimmah reported Imam Reza (peace be upon him) in the event of the spread of a pandemic
بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم لا حول ولا قوة إلا بالله العلي العظيم. ولا ينفع شيء إلا بإذن الله. توكلت على الله. ولا يأتي بالشفاء إلا الله. ما شاء الله لا يصرف السوء إلا الله. حسبي الله الذي خلقني فهو يهدين. والذي هو يطعمني ويسقين. وإذا مرضت فهو يشفين. وننزل من القرآن ما هو شفاء ورحمة للمؤمنين. اللهم ارزقنا العافية. لا تفرق بيننا وبين العافية. يا خالق العافية. برحمتك يا أرحم الراحمين.
