4. Abul ‘Abbās Al-Kūfi narrated to me from Muĥammad ibn Ĥusain, from Ĥasan ibn Maĥbūb, from someone, from Abān Al-Azraq, from someone who said: Abū ‘Abdillāh (Imam Šādiq (a.s.)) said: One of the deeds most loved by Allāh, the Exalted, is going to the Ziyārah of the grave of Ĥusain (a.s.), and the best deed in the eyes of Allāh is pleasing a believer. And the closest that a slave can be to Allāh, the Exalted, is when he is crying in the state of prostration.
