طِبْتُمْ وَطَابَ مَنْبَتُكُمْ
tibtum wa taba manbatukum
Pleased be you as your origin has been pleased.

مَنَّ بِكُمْ عَلَيْنَا دَيَّانُ ٱلدِّينِ
manna bikum `alayna dayyanu alddini
The King of the religion has conferred upon us with the grace of our acknowledgment of you;

فَجَعَلَكُمْ فِي بُيُوتٍ
faja`alakum fi buyutin
He therefore caused you to be in houses

اذِنَ ٱللَّهُ انْ تُرْفَعَ
adhina allahu an turfa`a
which He (i.e. Allah) has permitted to be exalted

وَيُذْكَرَ فِيهَا ٱسْمُهُ
wa yudhkara fiha ismuhu
and that His Name may be mentioned therein,

وَجَعَلَ صَلاَتَنَا عَلَيْكُمْ
wa ja`ala salatana `alaykum
and He has decided our invocations of blessings upon you

رَحْمَةً لَنَا وَكَفَّارَةً لِذُنُوبِنَا
rahmatan lana wa kaffaratan lidhunubina
to be mercy on us and to be granting remission of our sins.

إِذِ ٱخْتَارَكُمُ ٱللَّهُ لَنَا
idhi ikhtarakumu allahu lana
Allah has chosen you for us

وَطَيَّبَ خَلْقَنَا بِمَا مَنَّ عَلَيْنَا مِنْ وِلاَيَتِكُمْ
wa tayyaba khalqana bima manna `alayna min wilayatikum
and has purified our creation through the grace of our loyalty to your (Divinely commissioned) Leadership with which He has conferred upon us.

وَكُنَّا عِنْدَهُ مُسَمِّينَ بِعِلْمِكُمْ
wa kunna `indahu musammina bi`ilmikum
We have thus become nominated with Him due to our acknowledgement of you

مُعْتَرِفِينَ بِتَصْدِيقِنَا إِيَّاكُمْ
mu`tarifina bitasdiqina iyyakum
and our giving credence to you.

وَهٰذَا مَقَامُ مَنْ اسْرَفَ وَاخْطَا
wa hadha maqamu man asrafa wa akhta'a
So, this is the situation of him who has committed mistakes and sins,

وَٱسْتَكَانَ وَاقَرَّ بِمَا جَنَىٰ
wastakana wa aqarra bima jana
shown submission (to you), and confessed of what he had committed.

وَرَجَا بِمَقَامِهِ ٱلْخَلاَصَ
wa raja bimaqamihi alkhalasa
Hence, being in this situation, I hope for redemption

وَانْ يَسْتَنْقِذَهُ بِكُمْ مُسْتَنْقِذُ ٱلْهَلْكَىٰ مِنَ ٱلرَّدَىٰ
wa an yastanqidhahu bikum
and I hope that the Savior of the perishing ones from perdition may save me in your names.

فَكُونُوٱ لِي شُفَعَاءَ
mustanqidhu alhalka min alrrada
So, (please) be my interceders,

فَقَدْ وَفَدْتُ إِلَيْكُمْ
fakunu li shufa`a'a
for I have come to you

إِذْ رَغِبَ عَنْكُمْ اهْلُ ٱلدُّنْيَا
faqad wafadtu ilaykum
when the people of this world abandoned you,

وَٱتَّخَذُوٱ آيَاتِ ٱللَّهِ هُزُواً
idh raghiba `ankum ahlu alddunya
took the Signs of Allah for a jest,

وَٱسْتَكْبَرُوٱ عَنْهَا
wattakhadhu ayati allahi huzwan
and turned away from them haughtily.


You may then raise your head toward the sky and say the following:
يَا مَنْ هُوَ قَائِمٌ لاََ يَسْهُو
ya man huwa qa'imun la yashu
O He Who is Self-Subsisting and never forgets,

وَدَائِمٌ لاََ يَلْهُو
wa da'imun la yalhu
Who is Ever-living and never becomes heedless,

وَمُحيطٌ بِكُلِّ شَيْءٍ
wa muhitun bikulli shay'in
and Who encompasses all things!

لَكَ ٱلْمَنُّ بِمَا وَفَّقْتَنِي
laka almannu bima waffaqtani
To You is all gratitude for that You have guided me (to this)

وَعَرَّفْتَنِي بِمَا اقَمْتَنِي عَلَيْهِ
wa `arraftani bima aqamtani `alayhi
and You have introduced to me that on which I rest,

إِذْ صَدَّ عَنْهُ عِبَادُكَ
idh sadda `anhu `ibaduka
when Your servants diverted from it,

وَجَهِلُوٱ مَعْرِفَتَهُ
wa jahilu ma`rifatahu
ignored the recognition of it,

وَٱسْتَخَفُّوٱ بِحَقِّهِ
wastakhaffu bihaqqihi
belittled its right,

وَمَالُوٱ إِلَىٰ سِوَاهُ
wa malu ila siwahu
and inclined to elsewhere.

فَكَانَتِ ٱلْمِنَّةُ مِنْكَ عَلَيَّ
fakanat alminnatu minka `alayya
Hence, You have conferred upon me with this favor

مَعَ اقْوَامٍ خَصَصْتَهُمْ بِمَا خَصَصْتَنِي بِهِ
ma`a aqwamin khasastahum bima khasastani bihi
as well as upon other people whom You have granted exclusively the same.

فَلَكَ ٱلْحَمْدُ إِذْ كُنْتُ عِنْدَكَ
falaka alhamdu idh kuntu `indaka
So, all praise be to You, for I have been

فِي مَقَامِي هٰذَا مَذْكُوراً مَكْتُوباً
fi maqami hadha madhkuran maktuban
mentioned and written with You due to the situation in which I am now.

فَلاَ تَحْرِمْنِي مَا رَجَوْتُ
fala tahrimni ma rajawtu
Hence, (please) do not deprive me of what I long for,

وَلاَ تُخَيِّبْنِي فِي مَا دَعَوْتُ
wa la tukhayyibni fi ma da`awtu
and do not disappoint me as regards my supplication;

بِحُرْمَةِ مُحَمَّدٍ وَآلِهِ ٱلطَّاهِرِينَ
bihurmati muhammadin wa alihi alttahirina
(please do so) in the name of the sanctity of Muhammad and his immaculate Household.

وَصَلَّىٰ ٱللَّهُ عَلَىٰ مُحَمَّدٍ وَآلِ مُحَمَّدٍ
wa salla allahu `ala muhammadin wa ali muhammadin
May Allah send blessings upon Muhammad and the Household of Muhammad.


You may now pray Almighty Allah for anything you want.
In Tahdhib al-Ahkam, Shaykh al-Tusi says: You may then offer the Ziyarah Prayer (salat al-ziyarah) in eight units; each two units are for one of the (four) Imams.
Shaykh al-Tusi and Sayyid Ibn Tawus say that if you want to bid farewell to the four Imams, you may say the following:
اَلسَّلاَمُ عَلَيْكُمْ ائِمَّةَ ٱلْهُدَىٰ وَرَحْمَةُ ٱللَّهِ وَبَرَكَاتُهُ
alssalamu `alaykum a'immata alhuda wa rahmatu allahi wa barakatuhu
Peace and Allah’s mercy and blessings be upon you, O leaders to the true guidance.

اسْتَوْدِعُكُمُ ٱللَّهَ وَاقْرَا عَلَيْكُمُ ٱلسَّلاَمَ
astawdi`ukumu allaha wa aqra'u `alaykumu alssalama
I entrust you with Allah([1]) and send salutations to you.

آمَنَّا بِٱللَّهِ وَبِٱلرَّسُولِ
amanna billahi wa bilrrasuli
We believe in Allah and in the Messenger

وَبِمَا جِئْتُمْ بِهِ وَدَلَلْتُمْ عَلَيْهِ
wa bima ji'tum bihi wa dalaltum `alayhi
and in that which you have conveyed and that to which you have guided.

اَللَّهُمَّ فَٱكْتُبْنَا مَعَ ٱلشَّاهِدِينَ
allahumma faktubna ma`a alshshahidina
O Allah, then write us down among those who bear witness.

You may then supplicate Almighty Allah as earnestly as possible and pray Him to grant you another opportunity to visit these holy tombs.

Hurra Martyrs

Event of Hurrah in Baqee
Baqee is having an eventful history and a large number of holy warriors are buried therein. These include those who were injured during the Battle of Ohod but they achieved martyrdom after returning to Medina. Then they were buried in Baqee. The martyrs of the Event of Hurrah are also buried in Baqee. After the tragedy of Kerbala and the martyrdom of Imam Husain (a.s.) and his companions, the people of Medina revolted against the Umayyad rule and dethroned the governor of Medina. Yazid sent a large army to suppress the revolt and his army plundered Medina for three days continuously, killing people and looting their property and the honor of their women. Thousands perished in this attack including 80 companions of the Holy Prophet (s.a.w.a.) and 700 children of the Ansaar and Mohaajereen (Helpers and Emigrants). This incident is famous as "Hurrah". The martyrs of this attack are buried in Baqee. Recite the Ziarat of the martyrs of Ohod and the event of Hurrah in the following manner:
