  • Imām Jaʿfar al-Ṣādiq(a) narrates: “Allāh will record the reward of freeing one thousand slaves for those who perform the ziyārah of the grave of al-Ḥusayn(a) whilst having maʿrifah. He will also earn the reward of offering one thousand saddled and bridles horses in the way of Allāh.”

  • Abū Saʿeed al-Madaʿinī narrates: I asked Imām Jaʿfar al-Ṣādiq(a), “May I be sacrificed for you! Should I go to the grave of the son of Rasūl Allāh(s)?”

    Imām(a) replied, “O’ Abū Saʿeed! Yes, you should go to the grave of the son of Rasūl Allāh(s), the most blessed of the blessed one, the most pure of the purified ones, and the most pious of the pious ones. If you perform his ziyārah, then Allāh will recorded the reward of freeing twenty-five slaves for you.”
