  • Abū Usāma recounts: Imām Ṣādiq(a) once said, "Whoever wishes to be in the proximity of Prophet Muḥammad(p), Amīr al-Muʼminīn(a), and Lady Fāṭima(a), should not neglect the ziyārah of Ḥusayn b. ʿAlī(a)."

  • As narrated by Abū Baṣīr: I once heard Imām Bāqir(a) say, "Those who yearn for their eternal home to be Heaven must not overlook the ziyārah of the 'Oppressed One'." Intrigued, I asked, "Who is this 'Oppressed One'?" The Imām(a) clarified, Ḥusayn b. ʿAlī(a), the Master of Karbalā. Allah will place those who lovingly perform his ziyārah, brimming with longing and affection for The Messenger of Allah(p), Lady Fāṭima(a), and Amīr al-Muʼminīn(a), at the heavenly banquet. They will be dining alongside them while others are still in judgement."

  • Imām Ṣādiq(a) said, "Allah has assigned angels to the tomb of Ḥusayn(a). When an individual resolves to perform the ziyārah of Ḥusayn(a) and undergoes the ritual purification, ghusl, Prophet Muḥammad(p) will herald to them, "O' guests of Allah! Rejoice, for you are destined to join me in Heaven."
