1 حَدَّثَنِي أَبِي وَ مُحَمَّدُ بْنُ الْحَسَنِ عَنِ الْحَسَنِ بْنِ مَتِّيلٍ وَ قَالَ مُحَمَّدُ بْنُ الْحَسَنِ وَ حَدَّثَنِي مُحَمَّدُ بْنُ الْحَسَنِ الصَّفَّارُ جَمِيعاً عَنْ أَحْمَدَ بْنِ أَبِي عَبْدِ اللَّهِ الْبَرْقِيِّ قَالَ حَدَّثَنَا الْحَسَنُ بْنُ عَلِيِّ بْنِ فَضَّالٍ قَالَ حَدَّثَنِي أَبُو أَيُّوبَ إِبْرَاهِيمُ بْنُ عُثْمَانَ الْخَزَّازُ عَنْ مُحَمَّدِ بْنِ مُسْلِمٍ عَنْ أَبِي جَعْفَرٍ (ع) قَالَ مُرُوا شِيعَتَنَا بِزِيَارَةِ قَبْرِ الْحُسَيْنِ (ع) فَإِنَّ إِتْيَانَهُ مُفْتَرَضٌ عَلَى كُلِّ مُؤْمِنٍ- يُقِرُّ لِلْحُسَيْنِ (ع) بِالْإِمَامَةِ مِنَ اللَّهِ عَزَّ وَ جَلَّ


1. My father and Muĥammad ibn Ĥasan both narrated to me from Ĥasan ibn Mattǐl, and from Muĥammad ibn Ĥasan Al-Šaffār, from Aĥmad ibn Abǐ ‘Abdillāh Al-Barqi, from Ĥasan ibn ‘Ali ibn Faďďāl, from Abǐ Ayyūb Ibrāhǐm ibn ‘Uthmān Al-Kazzāz, from Muĥammad ibn Muslim, who said: Abū Ja’far (Imam Bāqir (a.s.)) said: Order our Shia to go to the Ziyārah of the grave of Ĥusain (a.s.). Verily going to his Ziyārah is obligatory on every believer who testifies that Ĥusain (a.s.) is an Imam appointed by Allāh, the Great and Almighty.




2 حَدَّثَنِي أَبِي وَ أَخِي وَ عَلِيُّ بْنُ الْحُسَيْنِ وَ مُحَمَّدُ بْنُ الْحَسَنِ رَحِمَهُمُ اللَّهُ جَمِيعاً عَنْ أَحْمَدَ بْنِ إِدْرِيسَ عَنْ عُبَيْدِ اللَّهِ بْنِ مُوسَى عَنِ الْوَشَّاءِ قَالَ سَمِعْتُ الرِّضَا (ع) يَقُولُ إِنَّ لِكُلِّ إِمَامٍ عَهْداً فِي عُنُقِ أَوْلِيَائِهِ وَ شِيعَتِهِ وَ إِنَّ مِنْ تَمَامِ الْوَفَاءِ بِالْعَهْدِ وَ حُسْنِ الْأَدَاءِ زِيَارَةَ قُبُورِهِمْ فَمَنْ زَارَهُمْ رَغْبَةً فِي زِيَارَتِهِمْ وَ تَصْدِيقاً لِمَا رَغِبُوا فِيهِ كَانَ أَئِمَّتُهُمْ شُفَعَاءَهُمْ يَوْمَ الْقِيَامَةِ حَدَّثَنِي مُحَمَّدُ بْنُ يَعْقُوبَ الْكُلَيْنِيُّ عَنْ أَحْمَدَ بْنِ إِدْرِيسَ بِإِسْنَادِهِ مِثْلَهُ سَوَاءً


2. My father, my brother, ‘Ali ibn Ĥusain, and Muĥammad ibn Ĥasan all narrated to me from Aĥmad ibn Idrǐs, from ‘Ubaydillāh ibn Mūsā, from Al-Washā, who said: I heard Imam Riďā (a.s.) say: There is a binding contract on every Shia and follower toward his Imam and the most perfect and beautiful way to fulfill this contract is to go to the Ziyārah of the grave of that Imam. On the Day of Judgment, the Imams (a.s.) will intercede for those who go to their Ziyārah while longing for it and believing in that which they have been ordered to believe. The above Ĥadǐth has also been narrated to me through the following chain: Muĥammad ibn Ya’qūb Al-Kulayni, from Aĥmad ibn Idrǐs, from ‘Ubaydillāh ibn Mūsā, from Al-Washā, from Imam Riďā (a.s.).




3 حَدَّثَنِي مُحَمَّدُ بْنُ جَعْفَرٍ الرَّزَّازُ قَالَ حَدَّثَنِي مُحَمَّدُ بْنُ الْحُسَيْنِ بْنِ أَبِي الْخَطَّابِ عَنْ أَبِي دَاوُدَ الْمُسْتَرِقِّ عَنْ أُمِّ سَعِيدٍ الْأَحْمَسِيَّةِ عَنْ أَبِي عَبْدِ اللَّهِ (ع) قَالَتْ قَالَ لِي يَا أُمَّ سَعِيدٍ تَزُورِينَ قَبْرَ الْحُسَيْنِ قَالَتْ قُلْتُ نَعَمْ فَقَالَ لِي زُورِيهِ فَإِنَّ زِيَارَةَ قَبْرِ الْحُسَيْنِ وَاجِبَةٌ عَلَى الرِّجَالِ وَ النِّسَاءِ


3. Muĥammad ibn Ja’far Al-Razzāz narrated to me from Muĥammad ibn Ĥusain ibn Abil Khaťťāb, from Abǐ Dāwūd Al-Mustariq, from Um Sa’ǐd Al-Aĥmasiyyah, who said: Abū ‘Abdillāh (Imam Šādiq (a.s.)) asked me, “O Um Sa’ǐd! Do you go to the Ziyārah of the grave of Ĥusain (a.s.)?” I replied, “Yes.” Imam (a.s.) said, “Go to his Ziyārah, for verily going to the Ziyārah of the grave of Ĥusain (a.s.) is WĀJIB (mandatory) on both men and women.”




4 حَدَّثَنِي أَبِي وَ مُحَمَّدُ بْنُ الْحَسَنِ رَحِمَهُمُ اللَّهُ جَمِيعاً عَنِ الْحَسَنِ بْنِ مَتِّيلٍ عَنِ الْحَسَنِ بْنِ عَلِيٍّ الْكُوفِيِّ عَنْ عَلِيِّ بْنِ حَسَّانَ الْهَاشِمِيِّ عَنْ عَبْدِ الرَّحْمَنِ بْنِ كَثِيرٍ مَوْلَى أَبِي جَعْفَرٍ (ع) عَنْ أَبِي عَبْدِ اللَّهِ (ع) قَالَ لَوْ أَنَّ أَحَدَكُمْ حَجَّ دَهْرَهُ ثُمَّ لَمْ يَزُرِ الْحُسَيْنَ بْنَ عَلِيٍّ (ع) لَكَانَ تَارِكاً حَقّاً مِنْ حُقُوقِ اللَّهِ وَ حُقُوقِ رَسُولِ اللَّهِ (ص) لِأَنَّ حَقَّ الْحُسَيْنِ (ع) فَرِيضَةٌ مِنَ اللَّهِ وَاجِبَةٌ عَلَى كُلِّ مُسْلِمٍ


4. My father and Muĥammad ibn Ĥasan both narrated to me from Ĥasan ibn Mattǐl, from Ĥasan ibn ‘Ali Al-Kūfi, from ‘Ali ibn Ĥassān Al-Hāshimi, from ‘Abdil Raĥmān ibn Kuthayr – the servant of Abǐ Ja’far (Imam Bāqir (a.s.)), who said: Abū ‘Abdillāh (Imam Šādiq (a.s.)) said: Even if you go to Hajj every year of your life but do not go to the Ziyārah of Ĥusain ibn ‘Ali (a.s.), you have abandoned one of your obligations toward Allāh and His Messenger (s.a.a.w.). Verily Allāh has made it mandatory (on the believers to fulfill) the right(s) of Ĥusain (a.s.), and this (Ziyārah) is obligatory on every Muslim.
