1 تَقُولُ اللَّهُمَّ لَا تَجْعَلْهُ آخِرَ الْعَهْدِ مِنْ زِيَارَتِي إِيَّاهُمْ وَ أَشْرِكْنِي مَعَهُمْ وَ أَدْخِلْنِي فِي صَالِحِ مَا أَعْطَيْتَهُمْ عَلَى نَصْرِهِمْ ابْنَ بِنْتِ نَبِيِّكَ وَ حُجَّتَكَ عَلَى خَلْقِكَ وَ جِهَادِهِمْ مَعَهُ فِي سَبِيلِكَ اللَّهُمَّ اجْمَعْنَا وَ إِيَّاهُمْ فِي جَنَّتِكَ مَعَ الشُّهَداءِ وَ الصّالِحِينَ وَ حَسُنَ أُولئِكَ رَفِيقاً أَسْتَوْدِعُكُمُ اللَّهَ وَ أَقْرَأُ عَلَيْكُمُ السَّلَامَ اللَّهُمَّ ارْزُقْنِي الْعَوْدَ إِلَيْهِمْ- وَ احْشُرْنِي مَعَهُمْ يَا أَرْحَمَ الرَّاحِمِينَ


1. Abū ‘Abdil Raĥmān Muĥammad ibn Aĥmad ibn Ĥusain Al-‘Askari and Muĥammad ibn Ĥasan both narrated to me from Ĥasan ibn ‘Ali ibn Mahziyār, from his father ‘Ali ibn Mahziyār, from Muĥammad ibn Abǐ ‘Umayr, from Muĥammad ibn Marwān, from Abǐ Ĥamzah Al-Thumāli, who said: (Imam Šādiq (a.s.) said – as part of a longer Ĥadǐth): Then recite (the following): O Allāh! Do not make this the last time I come to their Ziyārah. Make me their partner and include me in the blessings which You have bestowed on them for supporting the son of Your Prophet’s daughter and Your Decisive Proof on Your creation and for fighting with him in Your way. O Allāh! Unite us with them in Your Paradise along with the Martyrs and the Righteous Ones. How excellent these companions are! I bid farewell to you and send my Salām to you. O Allāh! Sustain me with returning to them and resurrect me with them, O Most Merciful of the merciful ones.
