Allāh’s Rewards

  • ʿAbd Allāh al-Taḥān narrates: I heard Imām Jaʿfar al-Ṣādiq(a) say; “On the Day of Judgment, everyone will desire to be amongst those who had performed the ziyārah of al-Ḥusayn(a) because they will see the manner in which the visitors of al-Ḥusayn(a) will be recognised and treated by Allāh.”

  • Imām Jaʿfar al-Ṣādiq(a) narrates: “Those who yearn to be sitting at the table spread made of Nur (light) on the Day of Judgment should perform the ziyārah of al-Ḥusayn b. ʿAlī(a).”

  • Al-Mufaḍḍal b. 'Umar narrates: Imām Jaʿfar al-Ṣādiq(a) said, “I swear by Allāh it is as if I can see an assembly of angels around the believers beside the grave of al-Ḥusayn(a).” I asked, “Do they appear for the believers?”

    Imām(a) replied, “I swear by Allāh they are attached to the believers and the angels touch their faces with their hands. Every morning and every night, Allāh sends down food for the visitors of al-Ḥusayn(a) from Heaven and the angels are their servants. If they ask Allāh for anything, regardless if it is for this world or the Hereafter, Allāh will grant it for them.”

    I said, “I swear by Allāh this is a great honor.”

    Imām(a) said, “O’ Mufaḍḍal! Should I tell you more?” I replied, “Yes master.”

    Imām(a) said, “It is as if I can see a throne made of Nur (light) which has been erected. A dome made of red rubies and decorated with gems has been placed on its top and there are ninety thousand green domes surrounding it. It is as if I can see al-Ḥusayn(a) sitting on this throne and the believers are visiting him and sending salutations to him. Allāh(s) will say to them “O’ My friends! Ask Me for you have been battered, humiliated, and oppressed for a long time. However today is the day that you will not ask Me for anything, whether it be for this world or the Hereafter, without it being granted.”

    Imām(a) then added, “Their food and drink are in Heaven and I swear by Allāh this is the blessing which will never end and its greatness is immeasurable.”
