Prolongs One’s Life & Increases Rizq

- views2 min read
  • Imām Muḥammad al-Bāqir(a) narrates: “Inform our Shīʿa to perform the ziyārah of the grave of al-Ḥusayn(a). Performing his ziyārah increases rizq (sustenance), prolongs life, and keeps afflictions away. Performing his ziyārah is compulsory upon every believer who believes al-Ḥusayn(a) has been divinely appointed by Allāh as an Imām.”

  • Manṣūr b. Hāzim narrates: We heard Imām Jaʿfar al-Ṣādiq(a) say, “If one full year passes in which a person has not performed the ziyārah of al-Ḥusayn(a), Allāh reduces his life by one full year. If I say to some of you that you will die a full thirty years before your written time of death I will have said the truth because you have ignored performing the ziyārah of al-Ḥusayn(a). Therefore do not neglect performing his ziyārah for Allāh will prolong the lives and increase the sustenance of those who perform his ziyārah. But if you ignore performing his ziyārah then Allāh will shorten your lives and decrease your sustenance. Encourage one another to perform the ziyārah of al-Ḥusayn(a) and do not neglect it. Al-Ḥusayn(a) will testify on behalf of those who performed his ziyārah before Allāh, Rasūl Allāh(s), Lady Fāṭima(a), and ʾAmīr al-Muʾminīn(a).”

  • Imām al-Ṣādiq(a) narrates: “Those who do not perform the ziyārah of the grave of al-Ḥusayn(a) will be deprived of numerous blessings and one year will be reduced from their lifespan.”

  • Muḥammad b. Marwān narrates: I heard Imām Jaʿfar al-Ṣādiq(a) say, “Perform the ziyārah of al-Ḥusayn( a) even if it is only once a year. Whosoever performs his ziyārah whilst having maʿrifah and without denying his status will be rewarded with paradise, will have his sustenance increased generously, and will be immediately joyful by that which Allāh has brought for him.”

  • ‘Abd al-Malik al-Khath‘ami narrates: Imām Jaʿfar al-Ṣādiq(a) said to me, “O’ ‘Abd al-Malik! Do not neglect performing the ziyārah of al-Ḥusayn b. ʿAlī(a) and order your friends to perform his ziyārah. By doing so, Allāh will prolong your life, increase your sustenance, allow you a life full of bliss and let you die a joyous death. You will also be recorded amongst the joyous ones.”
