Farewll Ziarat in Iqbal Aamal
أقول و وجدت لهذه الزيارة وداعا [دعاء] يختص بها.
السَّلَامُ عَلَيْكَ يَا ابْنَ رَسُولِ اللَّهِ السَّلَامُ عَلَيْكَ يَا ابْنَ عَلِيٍّ الْمُرْتَضَى وَصِيَّ رَسُولِ اللَّهِ
السَّلَامُ عَلَيْكَ يَا ابْنَ فَاطِمَةَ الزَّهْرَاءِ سَيِّدَةَ نِسَاءِ الْعَالَمِينَ
السَّلَامُ عَلَيْكَ يَا وَارِثَ الْحَسَنِ الزَّكِيِّ
السَّلَامُ عَلَيْكَ يَا حُجَّةَ اللَّهِ فِي أَرْضِهِ وَ شَاهِدَهُ عَلَى خَلْقِهِ
السَّلَامُ عَلَيْكَ يَا أَبَا عَبْدِ اللَّهِ الشَّهِيدُ وَ
السَّلَامُ عَلَيْكَ يَا مَوْلَايَ وَ ابْنَ مَوْلَايَ أَشْهَدُ أَنَّكَ قَدْ أَقَمْتَ الصَّلَاةَ وَ آتَيْتَ الزَّكَاةَ وَ أَمَرْتَ بِالْمَعْرُوفِ وَ نَهَيْتَ عَنِ الْمُنْكَرِ
وَ جَاهَدْتَ فِي سَبِيلِ اللَّهِ حَتَّى أَتَاكَ الْيَقِينُ
وَ أَشْهَدُ أَنَّكَ عَلَى بَيِّنَةٍ مِنْ رَبِّكَ أَتَيْتُكَ يَا مَوْلَايَ زَائِراً وَافِداً رَاغِباً مُقِرّاً لَكَ بِالذُّنُوبِ هَارِباً
إِلَيْكَ مِنَ الْخَطَايَا لِتَشْفَعَ لِي عِنْدَ رَبِّكَ يَا ابْنَ رَسُولِ اللَّهِ صَلَّى اللَّهُ
عَلَيْكَ حَيّاً وَ مَيِّتاً فَإِنَّ لَكَ عِنْدَ اللَّهِ مَقَاماً مَعْلُوماً وَ شَفَاعَةً مَقْبُولَةً
لَعَنَ اللَّهُ مَنْ ظَلَمَكَ وَ لَعَنَ اللَّهُ مَنْ حَرَمَكَ وَ غَصَبَ حَقَّكَ وَ لَعَنَ اللَّهُ مَنْ قَتَلَكَ
وَ لَعَنَ اللَّهُ مَنْ خَذَلَكَ وَ لَعَنَ اللَّهُ مَنْ دَعَوْتَهُ فَلَمْ يُجِبْكَ وَ لَمْ يُعِنْكَ
وَ لَعَنَ اللَّهُ مَنْ مَنَعَكَ مِنْ حَرَمِ اللَّهِ وَ حَرَمِ رَسُولِهِ وَ حَرَمِ أَبِيكَ وَ أَخِيكَ
وَ لَعَنَ اللَّهُ مَنْ مَنَعَكَ مِنْ شُرْبِ مَاءِ الْفُرَاتِ لَعْناً كَثِيراً يَتْبَعُ بَعْضُهَا بَعْضاً
اللَّهُمَّ فاطِرَ السَّماواتِ وَ الْأَرْضِ عالِمَ الْغَيْبِ وَ الشَّهادَةِ
أَنْتَ تَحْكُمُ بَيْنَ عِبادِكَ فِي ما كانُوا فِيهِ يَخْتَلِفُونَ‌
وَ سَيَعْلَمُ الَّذِينَ ظَلَمُوا أَيَّ مُنْقَلَبٍ يَنْقَلِبُونَ‌
اللَّهُمَّ لَا تَجْعَلْهُ آخِرَ الْعَهْدِ مِنْ زِيَارَتِهِ وَ ارْزُقْنِيهِ أَبَداً مَا بَقِيتُ وَ حَيِيتُ يَا رَبَّ الْعَالَمِينَ
وَ إِنْ مِتُّ فَاحْشُرْنِي فِي زُمْرَتِهِ يَا أَرْحَمَ الرَّاحِمِينَ.
There is an especial farewell supplication for this pilgrimage supplication.
You must stand facing the shrine and say the following,
"Peace be on you! O' son of God's Prophet (MGB). Peace be on you! O' son of Ali al-Murtiza – the Trustee of God's Prophet. Peace be on you! O' son of Fatimah az-Zahra (MGB) – the Master of the Ladies of the world. Peace be on you! O' inheritor of Al-Hassan – the Pure! Peace be on you! O' the Proof of God on His Earth! And His witness over His creatures! Peace be on you! O' Martyred Aba Abdullah (MGB)! Peace be on you! O' my Guardian! O' son of my Guardian!
I bear witness that you established the prayer, gave the prescribed share to the needy, enjoined to do good, forbade from evil, and strived in the way of God until the inevitable death came unto you. I bear witness that You are a Proof of your Lord for me.
I have come to you O' my Guardian! I have come to you as a pilgrim, a willing comer, confessing to his sins near You. O' son of God's Prophet (MGB)!
I am fleeing to You from my wrongdoings so that You intercede near Your Lord on my behalf. May God‟s Blessings be on you when you were alive and when you perished as for you there is a clear position near God and your intercession is accepted. Indeed you possess a known position near God and your intercession near Him is accepted. May God's Curse be on those who oppressed you. God's Curse be on those who wronged you and confiscated your rights.
May God's Curse be on those who killed you. May God's Curse be on those who belittled you. God's Curse be on those whom you invited but did not honor your call and did not help you. May God's Curse be on whoever prevented you from going to the House of God, the shrine of God‟s Prophet (MGB), and the shrines of your father and brother. May God's Curse be on whoever prevented you from drinking from the Euphrates - extensive curse one after the next.
"O' God! Creator of the heavens and the earth! Knower of all that is hidden and open! it is You that wilt judge between Your Servants in those matters about which they have differed."1
“And soon will the unjust assailants know what vicissitudes their affairs will take!”2
O' my God! Please do not make this be the last time I visit him. O Lord! Please bestow it on me for as long as I survive and You let me live. And should I die, please resurrect me to be next to him.
O' the Most Compassionate, Most Merciful!"

The pilgrimage supplications for visiting the shrine of Al-Abbas – the son of our Master – the Commander of the Faithful Ali (MGB), and those who were martyred along with Al-Hussein (MGB) is similar. On this day, perform the pilgrimage supplications for them in the same way that was explained before about the pilgrimage procedures for the day of Ashura or recite one of the other pilgrimage supplications for them as reported on the authority of other Divine Leaders (MGB).
