My father, ‘Ali ibn Ĥusain, and Muĥammad ibn Ya’qūb all narrated to me from ‘Ali ibn Ibrāhǐm ibn Hāshim, from his father, from some of his companions, from Hārūn ibn Khārijah, who said: Abū ‘Abdillāh (Imam Šādiq (a.s.)) said: On the fifteenth of Sha’bān, a caller calls out from the highest horizon: O those who have come to the Ziyārah of Ĥusain (a.s.)! Return forgiven and your rewards will be given (to you) by Allāh, your Lord, and by Muĥammad (s.a.a.w.), your Prophet.

Verily the souls of the prophets (a.s.), including the five ULUL ‘AZM Messengers, ask permission from Allāh (on that day) to go to his Ziyārah and they will be granted permission. We asked, “Who are the five Ulul ‘Azm (prophets)?” Imam (a.s.) replied, “Nūĥ, Ibrāhǐm, Mūsā, ‘Isā (a.s.), and Muĥammad (s.a.a.w.).” We asked, “What does Ulul ‘Azm mean?” Imam (a.s.) replied, “They (are the prophets who) were sent to the east and the west of the earth and to (all of) Jinn and mankind.” The above Ĥadǐth has also been narrated to me through the following chain: My father and all of my scholars, from Sa’d ibn ‘Abdillāh, from Ĥasan ibn ‘Ali Al-Zaytūni, and from others, from Aĥmad ibn Hilāl, from Muĥammad ibn Abǐ ‘Umayr, from Ĥammād ibn ‘Uthmān, from Abǐ Bašǐr, from Abǐ ‘Abdillāh (Imam Šādiq (a.s.)).

8. Sālim ibn ‘Abdil Raĥmān narrated that: Abū ‘Abdillāh (Imam Šādiq (a.s.)) said: Allāh will dedicate two angels to those who spend the night of the fifteenth of Sha’bān in Karbalā and who do the following: Recite (the chapter of) “Qul Huwa Allāh” one thousand times, seek forgiveness from Allāh one thousand times, praise Allāh one thousand times, and then establish four Rak’ah of Šalāt by reciting “Āyatul Kursǐ” one thousand times in each Rak’ah (after reciting Chapter Al-Ĥamd). The two angels will protect them from any harm and from the evil of every Shayťān and every ruler. They will only register their good deeds and no bad deeds will be registered for them. The two angels will (continuously) seek forgiveness for them as long as they are with them.

Allāh will forgive all of the past and future sins of the believers who go to the Ziyārah of Ĥusain (a.s.) on the night of the fifteenth of Sha’bān and they will be told, “Go toward (committing) good deeds.” I said, “All of this (will be registered) for those who go to the Ziyārah of Ĥusain (a.s.) on the fifteenth of Sha’bān?!” Imam (a.s.) replied, “O Yūnus! If I tell people about that which will be given to those who go to the Ziyārah of Ĥusain (a.s.) on this night, they would travel riding on wood (placed on the back of saddleless camels) to go to him.”




11 حَدَّثَنِي جَعْفَرُ بْنُ مُحَمَّدِ بْنِ عَبْدِ اللَّهِ بْنِ مُوسَى عَنْ عُبَيْدِ اللَّهِ بْنِ نَهِيكٍ عَنِ ابْنِ أَبِي عُمَيْرٍ عَنْ زَيْدٍ الشَّحَّامِ عَنْ جَعْفَرِ بْنِ مُحَمَّدٍ (ع) قَالَ مَنْ زَارَ [قَبْرَ] الْحُسَيْنِ (ع) لَيْلَةَ النِّصْفِ مِنْ شَعْبَانَ- غَفَرَ اللَّهُ لَهُ مَا تَقَدَّمَ مِنْ ذُنُوبِهِ وَ مَا تَأَخَّرَ وَ مَنْ زَارَهُ يَوْمَ عَرَفَةَ كَتَبَ اللَّهُ لَهُ ثَوَابَ أَلْفِ حِجَّةٍ مُتَقَبَّلَةٍ وَ أَلْفِ عُمْرَةٍ مَبْرُورَةٍ وَ مَنْ زَارَهُ يَوْمَ عَاشُورَاءَ فَكَأَنَّمَا زَارَ اللَّهَ [فِي] فَوْقَ عَرْشِهِ


11. Ja’far ibn Muĥammad ibn ‘Abdillāh ibn Mūsā narrated to me from ‘Ubaydillāh ibn Nahǐk, from Ibn Abǐ ‘Umayr, from Zayd Al-Shaĥĥām, who said: Ja’far ibn Muĥammad (Imam Šādiq (a.s.)) said: Allāh will forgive the past and future sins of those who go to the Ziyārah of the grave of Ĥusain (a.s.) on the night of the fifteenth of Sha’bān. Allāh will register the reward of one thousand accepted Hajj and one thousand purified ‘Umrah for those who go to the Ziyārah of Ĥusain (a.s.) on the Day of ‘Arafah. Those who go to the Ziyārah of Ĥusain (a.s.) on the Day of ‘Āshūrā, it is as if they have gone to the Ziyārah of Allāh on top of His Throne.
