Notes:

We worked on this book in several formats, because there was not any English translation of this book free downloadable in word, html and pdf as we have been searching it since last year except some parts of it on some sites.

The method of our work was as following:

1- We took the software (android) of Mafatih from the version of Erfan.ir

2- We transfered all parts even page by page into html format by sending one by one of them by sharing on our email: http://alhassanain2014@gmail.com

3- Then, we pasted them into unformatted text, and started to recheck whether there is any error or not, so, we found out that Surah al-Rum has only 26 verses, and like other errors.

4- We saw that this version does has not any chapterizing, so, we chapterized it according to the original text of Persian and then Arabic Translation of it.

5- .....

 

Despite of all we have done, if you see any error, please inform us on our email mentioned above, we welcome it and will try to recorrect as soon as possible.

 

May Allah accept our endeavours in His path, Amen!

Good Luck

ZIYARAH ON THE 15TH OF RAJAB

In his book of al-Mazar, Shaykh al-Mufid mentioned another form of ziyarah, different from the previous one, dedicated to the fifteenth of Rajab. This night is called ghufaylah (the unattended night), because the majority of people do not make it the object of their attention.

When you want to visit Imam al-Husayn’s tomb at this night, you may enter the holy shrine and repeat the following statement three times:

اللّه اكبر

Then, you may stop at the tomb and say the following words:

السَّلامُ عَلَيْكُمْ يَا آلَ اللّٰهِ السَّلامُ عَلَيْكُمْ يَا صَفْوَةَ اللّٰهِ السَّلامُ عَلَيْكُمْ يَا خِيَرَةَ اللّٰهِ مِنْ خَلْقِهِ السَّلامُ عَلَيْكُمْ يَا سَادَةَ السَّادَاتِ السَّلامُ عَلَيْكُمْ يَا لُيُوثَ [عَلَى لُيُوثِ‏] الْغَابَاتِ السَّلامُ عَلَيْكُمْ يَا سُفُنَ النَّجَاةِ السَّلامُ عَلَيْكَ يَا اَبَا عَبْدِ اللّٰهِ الْحُسَيْنَ السَّلامُ عَلَيْكَ يَا وَارِثَ عِلْمِ الْاَنْبِيَاءِ وَ رَحْمَةُ اللّٰهِ وَ بَرَكَاتُهُ [السَّلامُ عَلَيْكَ يَا وَارِثَ آدَمَ صَفْوَةِ اللّٰهِ السَّلامُ عَلَيْكَ يَا وَارِثَ نُوحٍ نَبِيِّ اللّٰهِ السَّلامُ عَلَيْكَ يَا وَارِثَ اِبْرَاهِيمَ خَلِيلِ اللّٰهِ‏] السَّلامُ عَلَيْكَ يَا وَارِثَ اِسْمَاعِيلَ ذَبِيحِ اللّٰهِ السَّلامُ عَلَيْكَ يَا وَارِثَ مُوسَى كَلِيمِ اللّٰهِ السَّلامُ عَلَيْكَ يَا وَارِثَ عِيسَى رُوحِ اللّٰهِ السَّلامُ عَلَيْكَ يَا وَارِثَ مُحَمَّدٍ حَبِيبِ اللّٰهِ ، السَّلامُ عَلَيْكَ يَا ابْنَ مُحَمَّدٍ الْمُصْطَفَى السَّلامُ عَلَيْكَ يَا ابْنَ عَلِيٍّ الْمُرْتَضَى السَّلامُ عَلَيْكَ يَا ابْنَ فَاطِمَةَ الزَّهْرَاءِ السَّلامُ عَلَيْكَ يَا ابْنَ خَدِيجَةَ الْكُبْرَى السَّلامُ عَلَيْكَ يَا شَهِيدَ ابْنَ الشَّهِيدِ السَّلامُ عَلَيْكَ يَا قَتِيلَ ابْنَ الْقَتِيلِ السَّلامُ عَلَيْكَ يَا وَلِيَّ اللّٰهِ وَ ابْنَ وَلِيِّهِ السَّلامُ عَلَيْكَ يَا حُجَّةَ اللّٰهِ وَ ابْنَ حُجَّتِهِ عَلَى خَلْقِهِ اَشْهَدُ اَنَّكَ قَدْ اَقَمْتَ الصَّلاةَ وَ آتَيْتَ الزَّكَاةَ وَ اَمَرْتَ بِالْمَعْرُوفِ وَ نَهَيْتَ عَنِ الْمُنْكَرِ وَ رُزِئْتَ [وَ بَرَرْتَ‏] بِوَالِدَيْكَ وَ جَاهَدْتَ عَدُوَّكَ وَ اَشْهَدُ اَنَّكَ تَسْمَعُ الْكَلامَ وَ تَرُدُّ الْجَوَابَ وَ اَنَّكَ حَبِيبُ اللّٰهِ وَ خَلِيلُهُ وَ نَجِيبُهُ [نَجِيُّهُ‏]، وَ صَفِيُّهُ وَ ابْنُ صَفِيِّهِ يَا مَوْلايَ [وَ ابْنَ مَوْلايَ‏] زُرْتُكَ مُشْتَاقا فَكُنْ لِي شَفِيعا اِلَى اللّٰهِ يَا سَيِّدِي وَ اَسْتَشْفِعُ اِلَى اللّٰهِ بِجَدِّكَ سَيِّدِ النَّبِيِّينَ وَ بِاَبِيكَ سَيِّدِ الْوَصِيِّينَ وَ بِاُمِّكَ فَاطِمَةَ سَيِّدَةِ نِسَاءِ الْعَالَمِينَ اَلا لَعَنَ اللّٰهُ قَاتِلِيكَ وَ لَعَنَ اللّٰهُ ظَالِمِيكَ وَ لَعَنَ اللّٰهُ سَالِبِيكَ وَ مُبْغِضِيكَ مِنَ الْاَوَّلِينَ وَ الْآخِرِينَ وَ صَلَّى اللّٰهُ عَلَى سَيِّدِنَا مُحَمَّدٍ وَ آلِهِ الطَّيِّبِينَ الطَّاهِرِينَ.

You may then kiss the holy tomb and direct towards the tomb of ‘Ali ibn al-Husayn (‘a) in order to visit him. You may say the following words there:

السَّلامُ عَلَيْكَ يَا مَوْلايَ وَ ابْنَ مَوْلايَ لَعَنَ اللّٰهُ قَاتِلِيكَ وَ لَعَنَ اللّٰهُ ظَالِمِيكَ اِنِّي اَتَقَرَّبُ اِلَى اللّٰهِ بِزِيَارَتِكُمْ وَ بِمَحَبَّتِكُمْ وَ اَبْرَاُ اِلَى اللّٰهِ مِنْ اَعْدَائِكُمْ وَ السَّلامُ عَلَيْكَ يَا مَوْلايَ وَ رَحْمَةُ اللّٰهِ وَ بَرَكَاتُهُ .

You may then walk to the tombs of the martyrs - pleasure of Allah be upon them - and stop there to say the following words:

السَّلامُ عَلَى الْاَرْوَاحِ الْمُنِيخَةِ بِقَبْرِ اَبِي عَبْدِ اللّٰهِ الْحُسَيْنِ عَلَيْهِ السَّلامُ السَّلامُ عَلَيْكُمْ يَا طَاهِرِينَ مِنَ الدَّنَسِ السَّلامُ عَلَيْكُمْ يَا مَهْدِيُّونَ السَّلامُ عَلَيْكُمْ يَا اَبْرَارَ اللّٰهِ السَّلامُ عَلَيْكُمْ وَ عَلَى الْمَلائِكَةِ الْحَافِّينَ بِقُبُورِكُمْ اَجْمَعِينَ جَمَعَنَا اللّٰهُ وَ اِيَّاكُمْ فِي مُسْتَقَرِّ رَحْمَتِهِ وَ تَحْتِ عَرْشِهِ اِنَّهُ اَرْحَمُ الرَّاحِمِينَ وَ السَّلامُ عَلَيْكُمْ وَ رَحْمَةُ اللّٰهِ وَ بَرَكَاتُهُ.

You may then walk to the holy shrine of al-’Abbas the son of Amir al-Mu’minin, peace be upon both of them. When you reach there, you may stop at the gate of the dome and say the same previously mentioned words of visiting him.

ZIYARAH ON THE 15TH OF SHAABAN

Be it known to you that there are numerous traditions revealing the merits of visiting Imam al-Husayn (‘a) on the fifteenth of Sha’ban. As a sufficient merit, these narrations have been reported through several valid chains of authority from Imam Zayn al-’Abidin and Imam al-Sadiq as saying, “He who would like to be shaken hands by one hundred thousand and twenty-four prophets, may visit the tomb of Abu-’Abdullah al-Husayn on the fifteenth of Sha’ban, because the spirits of the prophets ask Almighty Allah to permit them to visit Imam al-Husayn’s tomb and the Almighty gives them permission. So, blessed be the one who shakes hands with these prophets among whom is the five constancy-endowed Messengers; namely, Noah, Abraham, Moses, Jesus, and Muhammad, peace be upon them all.”

When the reporter asked the Imam (‘a) to explain the meaning of constancy-endowed, the Imam (‘a) answered, “These prophets were sent to the east and west of the globe and to both humankind and jinn.”

There are two forms of visiting the holy tomb of Imam al-Husayn (‘a) on the fifteenth of Sha’ban. The first form is the same as the one previously cited for ziyarah on the first of Rajab, and the second is as follows:

In his book of al-Balad al-Amin, Shaykh al-Kaf’ami has reported Imam al-Sadiq (‘a) as saying that one who visits Imam al-Husayn’s tomb on the fifteenth of Sha’ban may stop at the tomb and say the following words:

الْحَمْدُ لِلَّهِ الْعَلِيِّ الْعَظِيمِ وَ السَّلامُ عَلَيْكَ اَيُّهَا الْعَبْدُ الصَّالِحُ الزَّكِيُّ اُودِعُكَ شَهَادَةً مِنِّي لَكَ تُقَرِّبُنِي اِلَيْكَ فِي يَوْمِ شَفَاعَتِكَ اَشْهَدُ اَنَّكَ قُتِلْتَ وَ لَمْ تَمُتْ بَلْ بِرَجَاءِ حَيَاتِكَ حَيِيَتْ قُلُوبُ شِيعَتِكَ وَ بِضِيَاءِ نُورِكَ اهْتَدَى الطَّالِبُونَ اِلَيْكَ وَ اَشْهَدُ اَنَّكَ نُورُ اللّٰهِ الَّذِي لَمْ يُطْفَأْ وَ لا يُطْفَاُ اَبَدا وَ اَنَّكَ وَجْهُ اللّٰهِ الَّذِي لَمْ يَهْلِكْ وَ لا يُهْلَكُ اَبَدا وَ اَشْهَدُ اَنَّ هَذِهِ التُّرْبَةَ تُرْبَتُكَ وَ هَذَا الْحَرَمَ حَرَمُكَ وَ هَذَا الْمَصْرَعَ مَصْرَعُ بَدَنِكَ لا ذَلِيلَ وَ اللّٰهِ مُعِزُّكَ وَ لا مَغْلُوبَ وَ اللّٰهِ نَاصِرُكَ هَذِهِ شَهَادَةٌ لِي عِنْدَكَ اِلَى يَوْمِ قَبْضِ رُوحِي بِحَضْرَتِكَ وَ السَّلامُ عَلَيْكَ وَ رَحْمَةُ اللّٰهِ وَ بَرَكَاتُهُ.

ZIYARAH OF IMAM HUSAYN (A) AT THE QADR NIGHTS

Be it known to you that numerous traditions have stated the merits of visiting Imam al-Husayn (‘a) during the month of Ramazan in general and at the first, fifteenth, and last night of this month in particular and at the Qadr Nights more specifically.

Imam Muhammad al-Taqi (al-Jawad) is reported to have said, “If one visits al-Husayn (‘a) at the twenty-third night of Ramazan, which is hoped to be the Qadr Night at which every affair of wisdom is made clear, he will be shaken hands by the spirits of twenty-four thousand prophets all of whom ask Almighty Allah to permit them to visit al-Husayn (‘a) at that night.”

According to another validly reported tradition, Imam al-Sadiq has said, “At the Qadr Night, a caller from the Seventh Sky will call out from the inside of the Divine Throne: Verily, Almighty Allah has forgiven any one who will come to the tomb of al-Husayn.”

According to another report, every one who presents himself at the tomb of Imam al-Husayn (‘a) at the Qadr Night, offers a two-unit prayer therein or any number of prayers possible, beseeches Almighty Allah to grant him Paradise, and seeks Him to protect him against Hellfire, then Almighty Allah shall grant him what he has asked for and shall save him from what he has asked Him to protect from.

Ibn Qawlawayh has reported Imam al-Sadiq (‘a) as saying, “One who is on his way to visit the tomb of al-Husayn ibn ‘Ali (‘a) in the month of Ramazan but he dies there, he shall be neither stopped for interrogation nor called to account. Moreover, he shall be allowed to enter Paradise without being exposed to horror.”

The words by which Imam al-Husayn (‘a) is visited at the Qadr Night is a form of ziyarah mentioned by Shaykh al-Mufid, Muhammad ibn al-Mashhadi, Ibn Tawus, and al-Shahid, Allah’s mercy be upon them all, in their books on forms of ziyarah. They dedicated these forms to the ziyarah at this night and on the two day of ‘Id (i.e. ‘Id al-Fitr and ‘Id al-Azha).

Shaykh Muhammad ibn al-Mashhadi has reported, through considerable chains of authority, that Imam al-Sadiq (‘a) said the following:

If you want to visit Imam al-Husayn - at the Qadr Nights - you may come to his holy shrine after you wash yourself and put on the cleanest of your clothes. When you stop at his tomb, you may face it, making the kiblah direction between your shoulders, and say the following words:

السَّلامُ عَلَيْكَ يَا ابْنَ رَسُولِ اللّٰهِ السَّلامُ عَلَيْكَ يَا ابْنَ اَمِيرِ الْمُؤْمِنِينَ السَّلامُ عَلَيْكَ يَا ابْنَ الصِّدِّيقَةِ الطَّاهِرَةِ فَاطِمَةَ سَيِّدَةِ نِسَاءِ الْعَالَمِينَ السَّلامُ عَلَيْكَ يَا مَوْلايَ يَا اَبَا عَبْدِ اللّٰهِ وَ رَحْمَةُ اللّٰهِ وَ بَرَكَاتُهُ اَشْهَدُ اَنَّكَ قَدْ اَقَمْتَ الصَّلاةَ وَ آتَيْتَ الزَّكَاةَ وَ اَمَرْتَ بِالْمَعْرُوفِ وَ نَهَيْتَ عَنِ الْمُنْكَرِ وَ تَلَوْتَ الْكِتَابَ حَقَّ تِلاوَتِهِ وَ جَاهَدْتَ فِي اللّٰهِ حَقَّ جِهَادِهِ وَ صَبَرْتَ عَلَى الْاَذَى فِي جَنْبِهِ مُحْتَسِبا حَتَّى اَتَاكَ الْيَقِينُ اَشْهَدُ اَنَّ الَّذِينَ خَالَفُوكَ وَ حَارَبُوكَ وَ الَّذِينَ خَذَلُوكَ وَ الَّذِينَ قَتَلُوكَ مَلْعُونُونَ عَلَى لِسَانِ النَّبِيِّ الْاُمِّيِّ وَ قَدْ خَابَ مَنِ افْتَرَى لَعَنَ اللّٰهُ الظَّالِمِينَ لَكُمْ مِنَ الْاَوَّلِينَ وَ الْآخِرِينَ وَ ضَاعَفَ عَلَيْهِمُ الْعَذَابَ الْاَلِيمَ اَتَيْتُكَ يَا مَوْلايَ يَا ابْنَ رَسُولِ اللّٰهِ زَائِرا عَارِفا بِحَقِّكَ مُوَالِيا لِاَوْلِيَائِكَ مُعَادِيا لِاَعْدَائِكَ مُسْتَبْصِرا بِالْهُدَى الَّذِي اَنْتَ عَلَيْهِ عَارِفا بِضَلالَةِ مَنْ خَالَفَكَ فَاشْفَعْ لِي عِنْدَ رَبِّكَ.

You may then throw yourself on the tomb, kiss it, put your cheek on it, move yourself towards the place of the head, and say the following words:

السَّلامُ عَلَيْكَ يَا حُجَّةَ اللّٰهِ فِي اَرْضِهِ وَ سَمَائِهِ صَلَّى اللّٰهُ عَلَى رُوحِكَ الطَّيِّبِ وَ جَسَدِكَ الطَّاهِرِ وَ عَلَيْكَ السَّلامُ يَا مَوْلايَ وَ رَحْمَةُ اللّٰهِ وَ بَرَكَاتُهُ.

You may again throw yourself on the tomb, kiss it, put your cheek on it, move yourself towards the place of the head, and offer the two-unit prayer of ziyarah after which you may offer any possible amount of prayer units. You may then turn to the side of the feet and visit ‘Ali ibn al-Husayn, saying:

السَّلامُ عَلَيْكَ يَا مَوْلايَ وَ ابْنَ مَوْلايَ وَ رَحْمَةُ اللّٰهِ وَ بَرَكَاتُهُ لَعَنَ اللّٰهُ مَنْ ظَلَمَكَ وَ لَعَنَ اللّٰهُ مَنْ قَتَلَكَ وَ ضَاعَفَ عَلَيْهِمُ الْعَذَابَ الْاَلِيمَ .

You may then pray Almighty Allah for your personal needs.

Then, you may leave your place at the side of the feet towards the kiblah direction in order to visit the martyrs by saying:

السَّلامُ عَلَيْكُمْ اَيُّهَا الصِّدِّيقُونَ السَّلامُ عَلَيْكُمْ اَيُّهَا الشُّهَدَاءُ الصَّابِرُونَ اَشْهَدُ اَنَّكُمْ جَاهَدْتُمْ فِي سَبِيلِ اللّٰهِ وَ صَبَرْتُمْ عَلَى الْاَذَى فِي جَنْبِ اللّٰهِ وَ نَصَحْتُمْ لِلَّهِ وَ لِرَسُولِهِ حَتَّى اَتَاكُمُ الْيَقِينُ اَشْهَدُ اَنَّكُمْ اَحْيَاءٌ عِنْدَ رَبِّكُمْ تُرْزَقُونَ فَجَزَاكُمُ اللّٰهُ عَنِ الْاِسْلامِ وَ اَهْلِهِ اَفْضَلَ جَزَاءِ الْمُحْسِنِينَ وَ جَمَعَ بَيْنَنَا وَ بَيْنَكُمْ فِي مَحَلِّ النَّعِيمِ.

You may then walk to the shrine of al-’Abbas the son of the Commander of the Faithful. When you stop at the gate of the shrine, you may say the following words:

السَّلامُ عَلَيْكَ يَا ابْنَ اَمِيرِ الْمُؤْمِنِينَ السَّلامُ عَلَيْكَ اَيُّهَا الْعَبْدُ الصَّالِحُ الْمُطِيعُ لِلَّهِ وَ لِرَسُولِهِ اَشْهَدُ اَنَّكَ قَدْ [جَاهَدْتَ وَ] نَصَحْتَ وَ صَبَرْتَ حَتَّى اَتَاكَ الْيَقِينُ لَعَنَ اللّٰهُ الظَّالِمِينَ لَكُمْ مِنَ الْاَوَّلِينَ وَ الْآخِرِينَ وَ اَلْحَقَهُمْ بِدَرْكِ الْجَحِيمِ .

You may offer there any amount of prayers voluntarily and then leave.

ZIYARAH ON THE EID AL FITR AND EID AL ADHA DAYS

According to a validly reported tradition on the authority of a valid chain of authority, Imam al-Sadiq (‘a) has said, “Whoever visits the tomb of al-Husayn at one of the following three nights, will have all his sins forgiven by Almighty Allah, including the past and the coming: the night before ‘Id al-Fitr Day, the night before ‘Id al-Azha Day, and the mid-Sha’ban night.”

According to another validly reported tradition, Imam Musa ibn Ja’far (al-Kazim) has said, “Whoever visits al-Husayn at these three nights, will have all his sins forgiven by Almighty Allah, both the past and the coming: the mid-Sha’ban night, the twenty-third night of Ramazan, and the ‘Id al-Fitr night.”

Imam al-Sadiq (‘a) is reported to have said, “If one visits al-Husayn ibn ‘Ali at the mid-Sha’ban night, the ‘Id al-Fitr night, and the ‘Arafat night in the same year, Almighty Allah will record for him the reward of one thousand times of admissible hajj and one thousand times of acceptable ‘umrah and will grant him one thousand requests for this world and the Hereafter.”

Imam al-Baqir (‘a) is reported to have said, “Whoever spends the ‘Arafat Night in the land of Karbala’ and resides to spend the ‘Arafat Day there and then leaves, Almighty Allah shall save him from the evils of that year.”

It is worth mentioning that scholars have dedicated two forms of ziyarah to these two blessed feast days (i.e. ‘Id al-Fitr and ‘Id al-Azha). The first form has been previously cited as the ziyarah form at the Qadr Nights, while the other is the following. What is apparently understood from the words of the scholars is that the first form of ziyarah is said when one visits the holy shrine on the two days of ‘Id al-Fitr and ‘Id al-Azha, while the following form is said when the holy shrine is visited at the two nights before these two days. Thus, the ziyarah form is as follows:

When you intend to visit Imam al-Husayn’s tomb at these two nights, you may stop at the gate of the holy dome, cast your sight on the tomb, and seek permission of admission by saying,

يَا مَوْلايَ يَا اَبَا عَبْدِ اللّٰهِ يَا ابْنَ رَسُولِ اللّٰهِ عَبْدُكَ وَ ابْنُ اَمَتِكَ الذَّلِيلُ بَيْنَ يَدَيْكَ وَ الْمُصَغَّرُ فِي عُلُوِّ قَدْرِكَ وَ الْمُعْتَرِفُ بِحَقِّكَ جَاءَكَ مُسْتَجِيرا بِكَ قَاصِدا اِلَى حَرَمِكَ مُتَوَجِّها اِلَى مَقَامِكَ مُتَوَسِّلا اِلَى اللّٰهِ تَعَالَى بِكَ اَ اَدْخُلُ يَا مَوْلايَ اَ اَدْخُلُ يَا وَلِيَّ اللّٰهِ اَ اَدْخُلُ يَا مَلائِكَةَ اللّٰهِ الْمُحْدِقِينَ بِهَذَا الْحَرَمِ الْمُقِيمِينَ فِي هَذَا الْمَشْهَدِ.

If your heart feels reverence and your eyes shed tears, then you may enter by preceding your right foot to your left one. You may then say the following words:

بِسْمِ اللّٰهِ وَ بِاللّٰهِ وَ فِي سَبِيلِ اللّٰهِ وَ عَلَى مِلَّةِ رَسُولِ اللّٰهِ اللّٰهُمَّ اَنْزِلْنِي مُنْزَلا مُبَارَكا وَ اَنْتَ خَيْرُ الْمُنْزِلِينَ

You may then say the following words:

اللّٰهُ اَكْبَرُ كَبِيرا وَ الْحَمْدُ لِلَّهِ كَثِيرا وَ سُبْحَانَ اللّٰهِ بُكْرَةً وَ اَصِيلا وَ الْحَمْدُ لِلَّهِ الْفَرْدِ الصَّمَدِ الْمَاجِدِ الْاَحَدِ الْمُتَفَضِّلِ الْمَنَّانِ الْمُتَطَوِّلِ الْحَنَّانِ الَّذِي مِنْ تَطَوُّلِهِ سَهَّلَ لِي زِيَارَةَ مَوْلايَ بِاِحْسَانِهِ وَ لَمْ يَجْعَلْنِي عَنْ زِيَارَتِهِ مَمْنُوعا وَ لا عَنْ ذِمَّتِهِ مَدْفُوعا بَلْ تَطَوَّلَ وَ مَنَحَ .

You may then enter the shrine. When you reach its center, you may stop near the tomb with reverence, weeping, and submission, and say the following words:

السَّلامُ عَلَيْكَ يَا وَارِثَ آدَمَ صِفْوَةِ اللّٰهِ السَّلامُ عَلَيْكَ يَا وَارِثَ نُوحٍ اَمِينِ اللّٰهِ السَّلامُ عَلَيْكَ يَا وَارِثَ اِبْرَاهِيمَ خَلِيلِ اللّٰهِ السَّلامُ عَلَيْكَ يَا وَارِثَ مُوسَى كَلِيمِ اللّٰهِ السَّلامُ عَلَيْكَ يَا وَارِثَ عِيسَى رُوحِ اللّٰهِ السَّلامُ عَلَيْكَ يَا وَارِثَ مُحَمَّدٍ صَلَّى اللّٰهُ عَلَيْهِ وَ آلِهِ حَبِيبِ اللّٰهِ السَّلامُ عَلَيْكَ يَا وَارِثَ عَلِيٍّ حُجَّةِ اللّٰهِ السَّلامُ عَلَيْكَ اَيُّهَا الْوَصِيُّ الْبَرُّ التَّقِيُّ السَّلامُ عَلَيْكَ يَا ثَارَ اللّٰهِ وَ ابْنَ ثَارِهِ وَ الْوِتْرَ الْمَوْتُورَ اَشْهَدُ اَنَّكَ قَدْ اَقَمْتَ الصَّلاةَ وَ آتَيْتَ الزَّكَاةَ وَ اَمَرْتَ بِالْمَعْرُوفِ وَ نَهَيْتَ عَنِ الْمُنْكَرِ وَ جَاهَدْتَ فِي اللّٰهِ حَقَّ جِهَادِهِ حَتَّى اسْتُبِيحَ حَرَمُكَ وَ قُتِلْتَ مَظْلُوما.

You may then stop at the side of the Imam’s head with submissive heart and teary eyes and say the following words:

السَّلامُ عَلَيْكَ يَا اَبَا عَبْدِ اللّٰهِ السَّلامُ عَلَيْكَ يَا ابْنَ رَسُولِ اللّٰهِ السَّلامُ عَلَيْكَ يَا ابْنَ سَيِّدِ الْوَصِيِّينَ السَّلامُ عَلَيْكَ يَا ابْنَ فَاطِمَةَ [الزَّهْرَاءِ] سَيِّدَةِ نِسَاءِ الْعَالَمِينَ السَّلامُ عَلَيْكَ يَا بَطَلَ الْمُسْلِمِينَ يَا مَوْلايَ اَشْهَدُ اَنَّكَ كُنْتَ نُورا فِي الْاَصْلابِ الشَّامِخَةِ وَ الْاَرْحَامِ الْمُطَهَّرَةِ لَمْ تُنَجِّسْكَ الْجَاهِلِيَّةُ بِاَنْجَاسِهَا وَ لَمْ تُلْبِسْكَ [مِنْ‏] مُدْلَهِمَّاتِ ثِيَابِهَا وَ اَشْهَدُ اَنَّكَ مِنْ دَعَائِمِ الدِّينِ وَ اَرْكَانِ الْمُسْلِمِينَ وَ مَعْقِلِ الْمُؤْمِنِينَ وَ اَشْهَدُ اَنَّكَ الْاِمَامُ الْبَرُّ التَّقِيُّ الرَّضِيُّ الزَّكِيُّ الْهَادِي الْمَهْدِيُّ وَ اَشْهَدُ اَنَّ الْاَئِمَّةَ مِنْ وُلْدِكَ كَلِمَةُ التَّقْوَى وَ اَعْلامُ الْهُدَى وَ الْعُرْوَةُ الْوُثْقَى وَ الْحُجَّةُ عَلَى اَهْلِ الدُّنْيَا.

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

اِنَّا لِلَّهِ وَ اِنَّا اِلَيْهِ رَاجِعُونَ يَا مَوْلايَ اَنَا مُوَالٍ لِوَلِيِّكُمْ وَ مُعَادٍ لِعَدُوِّكُمْ وَ اَنَا بِكُمْ مُؤْمِنٌ وَ بِاِيَابِكُمْ مُوقِنٌ بِشَرَائِعِ دِينِي وَ خَوَاتِيمِ عَمَلِي وَ قَلْبِي لِقَلْبِكُمْ سِلْمٌ وَ اَمْرِي لِاَمْرِكُمْ مُتَّبِعٌ يَا مَوْلايَ اَتَيْتُكَ خَائِفا فَآمِنِّي وَ اَتَيْتُكَ مُسْتَجِيرا فَاَجِرْنِي وَ اَتَيْتُكَ فَقِيرا فَاَغْنِنِي سَيِّدِي وَ مَوْلايَ اَنْتَ مَوْلايَ حُجَّةُ اللّٰهِ عَلَى الْخَلْقِ اَجْمَعِينَ آمَنْتُ بِسِرِّكُمْ وَ عَلانِيَتِكُمْ وَ بِظَاهِرِكُمْ وَ بَاطِنِكُمْ وَ اَوَّلِكُمْ وَ آخِرِكُمْ وَ اَشْهَدُ اَنَّكَ التَّالِي لِكِتَابِ اللّٰهِ وَ اَمِينُ اللّٰهِ الدَّاعِي اِلَى اللّٰهِ بِالْحِكْمَةِ وَ الْمَوْعِظَةِ الْحَسَنَةِ لَعَنَ اللّٰهُ اُمَّةً ظَلَمَتْكَ [وَ اُمَّةً قَتَلَتْكَ‏] وَ لَعَنَ اللّٰهُ اُمَّةً سَمِعَتْ بِذَلِكَ فَرَضِيَتْ بِهِ.

You may then offer a two-unit prayer to the side of the Imam’s head and when you finish, you may say the following words:

اللّٰهُمَّ اِنِّي لَكَ صَلَّيْتُ وَ لَكَ رَكَعْتُ وَ لَكَ سَجَدْتُ وَحْدَكَ لا شَرِيكَ لَكَ فَاِنَّهُ لا تَجُوزُ الصَّلاةُ وَ الرُّكُوعُ وَ السُّجُودُ اِلا لَكَ لِاَنَّكَ اَنْتَ اللّٰهُ الَّذِي لا اِلَهَ اِلا اَنْتَ [اللّٰهُمَ‏] صَلِّ عَلَى مُحَمَّدٍ وَ آلِ مُحَمَّدٍ وَ اَبْلِغْهُمْ عَنِّي [اَفْضَلَ‏] السَّلامِ وَ التَّحِيَّةِ وَ ارْدُدْ عَلَيَّ مِنْهُمُ السَّلامَ اللّٰهُمَّ وَ هَاتَانِ الرَّكْعَتَانِ هَدِيَّةٌ مِنِّي اِلَى سَيِّدِي الْحُسَيْنِ بْنِ عَلِيٍّ عَلَيْهِمَا السَّلامُ اللّٰهُمَّ صَلِّ عَلَى مُحَمَّدٍ وَ عَلَيْهِ وَ تَقَبَّلْهُمَا مِنِّي وَ اجْزِنِي عَلَيْهِمَا اَفْضَلَ اَمَلِي وَ رَجَائِي فِيكَ وَ فِي وَلِيِّكَ يَا وَلِيَّ الْمُؤْمِنِينَ.

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

السَّلامُ عَلَى الْحُسَيْنِ بْنِ عَلِيٍّ الْمَظْلُومِ الشَّهِيدِ قَتِيلِ الْعَبَرَاتِ وَ اَسِيرِ الْكُرُبَاتِ اللّٰهُمَّ اِنِّي اَشْهَدُ اَنَّهُ وَلِيُّكَ وَ ابْنُ وَلِيِّكَ وَ صَفِيُّكَ الثَّائِرُ بِحَقِّكَ اَكْرَمْتَهُ بِكَرَامَتِكَ وَ خَتَمْتَ لَهُ بِالشَّهَادَةِ وَ جَعَلْتَهُ سَيِّدا مِنَ السَّادَةِ وَ قَائِدا مِنَ الْقَادَةِ وَ اَكْرَمْتَهُ بِطِيبِ الْوِلادَةِ وَ اَعْطَيْتَهُ مَوَارِيثَ الْاَنْبِيَاءِ وَ جَعَلْتَهُ حُجَّةً عَلَى خَلْقِكَ مِنَ الْاَوْصِيَاءِ فَاَعْذَرَ فِي الدُّعَاءِ وَ مَنَحَ النَّصِيحَةَ وَ بَذَلَ مُهْجَتَهُ فِيكَ حَتَّى اسْتَنْقَذَ عِبَادَكَ مِنَ الْجَهَالَةِ وَ حَيْرَةِ [وَ خَيْبَةِ] الضَّلالَةِ وَ قَدْ تَوَازَرَ عَلَيْهِ مَنْ غَرَّتْهُ الدُّنْيَا وَ بَاعَ حَظَّهُ مِنَ الْآخِرَةِ بِالْاَدْنَى وَ تَرَدَّى فِي هَوَاهُ وَ اَسْخَطَكَ وَ اَسْخَطَ نَبِيَّكَ وَ اَطَاعَ مِنْ عِبَادِكَ اُولِي الشِّقَاقِ وَ النِّفَاقِ وَ حَمَلَةَ الْاَوْزَارِ الْمُسْتَوْجِبِينَ النَّارَ فَجَاهَدَهُمْ فِيكَ صَابِرا مُحْتَسِبا مُقْبِلا غَيْرَ مُدْبِرٍ لا تَأْخُذُهُ فِي اللّٰهِ لَوْمَةُ لائِمٍ حَتَّى سُفِكَ فِي طَاعَتِكَ دَمُهُ وَ اسْتُبِيحَ حَرِيمُهُ اللّٰهُمَّ الْعَنْهُمْ لَعْنا وَبِيلا وَ عَذِّبْهُمْ عَذَابا اَلِيما

You may then turn to ‘Ali ibn al-Husayn (‘a), who is buried to the side of Imam al-Husayn’s feet, and say the following words:

السَّلامُ عَلَيْكَ يَا وَلِيَّ اللّٰهِ السَّلامُ عَلَيْكَ يَا ابْنَ رَسُولِ اللّٰهِ السَّلامُ عَلَيْكَ يَا ابْنَ خَاتَمِ النَّبِيِّينَ السَّلامُ عَلَيْكَ يَا ابْنَ فَاطِمَةَ سَيِّدَةِ نِسَاءِ الْعَالَمِينَ السَّلامُ عَلَيْكَ يَا ابْنَ اَمِيرِ الْمُؤْمِنِينَ السَّلامُ عَلَيْكَ اَيُّهَا الْمَظْلُومُ الشَّهِيدُ بِاَبِي اَنْتَ وَ اُمِّي عِشْتَ سَعِيدا وَ قُتِلْتَ مَظْلُوما شَهِيدا.

You may then turn to the tombs of the martyrs - may Allah’s pleasure be upon them - and say the following words:

السَّلامُ عَلَيْكُمْ اَيُّهَا الذَّابُّونَ عَنْ تَوْحِيدِ اللّٰهِ السَّلامُ عَلَيْكُمْ بِمَا صَبَرْتُمْ فَنِعْمَ عُقْبَى الدَّارِ بِاَبِي اَنْتُمْ وَ اُمِّي فُزْتُمْ فَوْزا عَظِيما.

You may then walk to the shrine of al-’Abbas ibn ‘Ali, stop at his holy tomb, and say the following words:

السَّلامُ عَلَيْكَ اَيُّهَا الْعَبْدُ الصَّالِحُ وَ الصِّدِّيقُ الْمُوَاسِي اَشْهَدُ اَنَّكَ آمَنْتَ بِاللّٰهِ وَ نَصَرْتَ ابْنَ رَسُولِ اللّٰهِ وَ دَعَوْتَ اِلَى سَبِيلِ اللّٰهِ وَ وَاسَيْتَ بِنَفْسِكَ فَعَلَيْكَ مِنَ اللّٰهِ اَفْضَلُ التَّحِيَّةِ وَ السَّلامِ .

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

بِاَبِي اَنْتَ وَ اُمِّي يَا نَاصِرَ دِينِ اللّٰهِ السَّلامُ عَلَيْكَ يَا نَاصِرَ الْحُسَيْنِ الصِّدِّيقِ السَّلامُ عَلَيْكَ يَا نَاصِرَ الْحُسَيْنِ الشَّهِيدِ عَلَيْكَ مِنِّي السَّلامُ مَا بَقِيتُ وَ بَقِيَ اللَّيْلُ وَ النَّهَارُ.

You may then stand up to offer a two-unit prayer to the side of his head and then repeat the same words that you have said after offering a prayer at Imam al-Husayn’s shrine. These words, which have been previously cited, begin with the following statement:

اللّهمّ انّى‏ صلّيت...

You may then return to the shrine of Imam al-Husayn (‘a) to reside there for any period you like. However, it is recommended not to appoint the holy shrine as one’s place of residence and spending the night there.

If you intend to leave and bid farewell to the Imam (‘a), you may stop at the side of the head and say the following words while weeping:

السَّلامُ عَلَيْكَ يَا مَوْلايَ سَلامَ مُوَدِّعٍ لا قَالٍ وَ لا سَئِمٍ فَاِنْ اَنْصَرِفْ فَلا عَنْ مَلالَةٍ وَ اِنْ اُقِمْ فَلا عَنْ سُوءِ ظَنٍّ بِمَا وَعَدَ اللّٰهُ الصَّابِرِينَ يَا مَوْلايَ لا جَعَلَهُ اللّٰهُ آخِرَ الْعَهْدِ مِنِّي لِزِيَارَتِكَ وَ رَزَقَنِي الْعَوْدَ اِلَيْكَ وَ الْمُقَامَ فِي حَرَمِكَ وَ الْكَوْنَ فِي مَشْهَدِكَ آمِينَ رَبَّ الْعَالَمِينَ .

You may then kiss the tomb and try to pass your entire body over it, because this tomb is security and protection. You may then leave it by walking backwards without giving your back to the tomb. You may say the following words:

السَّلامُ عَلَيْكَ يَا بَابَ الْمَقَامِ السَّلامُ عَلَيْكَ يَا شَرِيكَ الْقُرْآنِ السَّلامُ عَلَيْكَ يَا حُجَّةَ الْخِصَامِ السَّلامُ عَلَيْكَ يَا سَفِينَةَ النَّجَاةِ السَّلامُ عَلَيْكُمْ يَا مَلائِكَةَ رَبِّيَ الْمُقِيمِينَ فِي هَذَا الْحَرَمِ السَّلامُ عَلَيْكَ اَبَدا مَا بَقِيتُ وَ بَقِيَ اللَّيْلُ وَ النَّهَارُ

You may also say the following words:

اِنَّا لِلَّهِ وَ اِنَّا اِلَيْهِ رَاجِعُونَ وَ لا حَوْلَ وَ لا قُوَّةَ اِلا بِاللّٰهِ الْعَلِيِّ الْعَظِيمِ.

You may then leave.

Sayyid Ibn Tawus and Muhammad ibn al-Mashhadi said, “If you do all these devotional acts (correctly), you will be as if you have visited Almighty Allah in His Divine Throne.”
