First to Enter Paradise

- views1 min read
  • ʿAbd Allāh b. Zurāra narrates: I heard Imām Jaʿfar al-Ṣādiq(a) say, “On the Day of Judgment those who have performed the ziyārah of al-Ḥusayn b. ʿAlī(a) will be given preference over others.”

    I asked, “What kind of preference?”

    Imām(a) replied, “They will enter paradise forty years before others do. They will enter paradise whilst others will be waiting in the Desert of Judgment to face reckoning.”
