  • ʿAbdullah b. Zurāra relays: Imām Ṣādiq(a) once asserted, "On the Day of Judgment, those who have performed the ziyārah of Ḥusayn b. ʿAlī(a) will enjoy a special privilege." Intrigued, I inquired, "What type of privilege?" The Imām(a) elaborated, "They will gain admission into paradise forty years ahead of others. They will be dwelling in bliss while others are still awaiting in the Desert of Judgment, bracing for reckoning."
