1. A number of our people have narrated from Ahmad ibn Muhammad from al-Husayn ibn Sa’id from Fadalah ibn Ayyub from Nu’aym ibn al-Walid from Yunus al-Kunasiy who has said the following: “Abu ‘ Abd Allah, ‘Alayhi al-Salam, has said that when you decide to visit the gravesite of al-Husayn, ‘Alayhi al-Salam, go to al-Furat and take a bath near his gravesite; then move toward him in a serene and dignified manner until you enter the shrine from its east side. During entering say, ‘I offer greeting of peace to the descending angels of Allah. I offer greeting of peace to the substituting angels of Allah. I offer greeting of peace to the marking angels of Allah. I offer greeting of peace to the angel of Allah who live in this sacred place.’ When you are in front of the gravesite of Al-Husayn, ‘Alayhi al-Salam, you should say, ‘(I hereby declare, affirm and acknowledge the divine authority of and my) submission to (the commandments of) the Messenger of Allah. (I hereby declare, affirm and acknowledge the divine authority of the trustee of Allah over His messengers and His decisive commandments, the seal of that which were before and the opening of that which is to come and the dominant over all of the affairs. May Allah grant him protection, kindness and blessings.’ Then you should say, £ 0 Allah, I appeal before You to grant salawat (favors and compensation) to ’Amir al- Mu’minin, Ali, Your servant, brother of Your messenger, whom You have chosen through Your knowledge and have made a guide for whomever of Your creatures You wanted and a vanguard for those whom You have sent with Your messages. He is the one provider and facilitator of the system of justice of Your religion according to Your justice, a differentiator in the issuance of Your judgment among Your creatures and the dominant over all such affairs. O Allah, grant him protection, kindness and blessing. O Allah, I appeal before You to grant salawat (favors and compensation to al-Hassan ibn Ali, worthy of his services to Your cause). He is Your servant and the son of the one whom You have chosen through Your knowledge and have appointed a guide for whomever You wanted of Your creatures, a vanguard for those whom You have sent with Your messages. He is the one provider and facilitator of the system of justice of Your religion according to Your justice, a differentiator in the issuance of Your judgment among Your creatures and the dominant over all such affairs. O Allah grant him protection, kindness and blessing.’ Then say salawat al-Salam for al-Husayn and all other ’A’immah, ‘Alayhim al-Salam, just as you said for (Imam) al-Hassan, ‘Alayhi al-Salam. Thereafter go near the gravesite of al-Husayn, ‘Alayhi al-Salam, and say, ‘(I hereby declare, affirm and acknowledge that you are a ‘Alayhi al-Salam and my) submission to (your commandments) O grandson of the Messenger of Allah. (I hereby declare, affirm and acknowledge that you are a ‘Alayhi al-Salam and my) submission to (your commandments) O son of ’Amir al-Mu’minin. I appeal before Allah to grant salawat (favors and compensation to you worthy of Your services to His cause) O abu ‘Abd Allah. I testify that you completed the task Allah, the Most Majestic, the Most Glorious, had commanded you to accomplish. You were not afraid of anyone other than Allah, strove hard for His cause, worshipped Him a true worshipping until the time of your martyrdom. I testify that you are the words of piety, the gateway of guidance, the unbreakable safety ring, the authority of Allah over the living and those under the earth. I testify that such qualities existed with you in the past and they are means of victory and triumph in future. I testify that your spirits and your clay (substance of your bodies) are clean, pure and cleansed. The substances of you (’A’immah) bodies were one from the other. It was a favor and great kindness for us from Allah. I designate Allah as my witness and I designate you as my witness that I believe in your (divine authority), I am your follower in my soul, in the rules of my religion, in the consequences of my deeds, in my return and my place of rest. I appeal before Allah, Honorable and Merciful to complete it for me. I testify that you accomplished all that Allah had commanded you to do and in so doing you were not afraid of anyone other than Allah. You strove hard for His cause, worshipped Him until the time of your death. I appeal before Allah to condemn those who murdered you, those who commanded your murderer and those condoned with the plan of your murderers. I testify that the statements of the Holy Prophet condemned those who violated your sanctity and spilled your blood.’ “Thereafter say, ‘O Allah, condemn those who have misrepresented Your bounty, opposed Your institution, turned away from Your command, accused Your messenger and created obstacles in Your path. O Allah, fill their graves with fire as well as their bellies and drive them and their followers to hell with their eyes turned blue. O Allah, condemn them with such condemnation with which the prominent angels, every messenger-prophet and every believing person whose faith is tested for its strength will condemn. O Allah, condemn them in most secrecy and concealment as well as openly in public manner. O Allah, condemn Jawabit (pi. of Jibt, devil) of this nation as well as its Tawaghit (pi. of taghut, transgressors), condemn its Pharaohs, condemn the murderers of ’Amir al-Mu’minin, the murderers of al-Husayn and punish them with such punishment which no one in the world is punished with. O Allah, make us of those who support him, of those whom You use for support and You grant them Your support for the cause of Your religion in this world as well as in the next world.’ “Then sit down near his head and say, I appeal before Allah to grant salawat (favors and compensation to you worthy of Your services to His cause). I testify that you are a servant of Allah, His trustee who has accomplished with wisdom the task of trustworthiness, spoke as truthful person and passed away with certainty. You did not accept blindness in place of guidance and never deviated from truth to falsehood. I testify that you performed salat (prayer), paid zakat, commanded people to do good and forbade them from doing evil deeds, followed the Messenger, recited the book in the true way of recitation and called people to the path of your Lord with wisdom and good advice. I appeal before Allah to grant salawat (favors and compensation to you worthy of Your services to His cause), with safety and protection. I appeal before Allah to reward you as with the reward of a truthful one’s good rewards for his services to his people. I testify that Jihad (striving for the cause of Allah) in your support is the true Jihad. I testify that truth is on your side, it belongs to you, you are of the people of truth, the source of truth and that the legacy of prophet-hood is with you and with the people of your family. I appeal before Allah to grant salawat (favors and compensation to you worthy of Your services to His cause), with peace and protection. I testify that you are Allah’s truthful servant and His authority over his creatures. I testify that your call is truthful call and every caller appointed beside you is false and invalid. I testify that Allah is the clear truth.’ “Thereafter you should go toward his feet and pray for yourself as you may choose. ‘Then you should go toward the head of Ali ibn al-Husayn and say, ‘I appeal before Allah to grant you His protection and peace and the greeting of peace of His prominent angels and prophets who were sent as messengers. You are my master and the son of my master. I appeal before Allah to bless you with His kindness and blessings. I appeal before Allah to grant compensation and reward to you, your family and the offspring of your noble and chosen ancestors from whom Allah has decided to remove all rijs (all filthy matters) and purify in a through purification.’ “Thereafter you should go to the gravesites of the martyrs and offer them your greetings of peace and say, I appeal before Allah to grant you peace and protection, O believers in the Lord, you have proceeded and we follow you. We are your followers and supporters. I testify that you are supporters of Allah, the masters of the martyrs in this world and in the next life. You are supporters of Allah as Allah, the Most Majestic, the Most Glorious, has said, “There were many prophets on whose side people believing in the Lord were fighting. They did not show any lack of responsibility even though they were hurt for the cause of Allah, nor showed any weakness or compromise with the enemy.” (3:146) You indeed did not show any weakness or compromise with the enemy, until you went before Allah on the path of the truth, supporting the perfect words of Allah. I appeal before Allah to grant favors and compensation to your spirits and bodies worthy of your services to His cause, with peace and protection. There is good news for you through the promise of Allah, which does not change, because He does not change His promises. Allah will accomplish His granting what He has promised to you, the masters of the martyrs, in this world and in the next life. You are the first al-Muhajirun (immigrants (to Allah)) and al- Ansar (the helpers). I testify that you did Jihad (strove hard) for the cause of Allah and you were murdered while protecting the institution of the Messenger of Allah and the son (the child) of the Messenger of Allah, I appeal before Allah to grant salawat (favors and compensation to Muhammad and his family worthy of their services to Your cause) with peace and protection. All praise belongs to Allah who made His promise with you to come true and showed you what you loved.’ “Then return to the gravesite and say, ‘I have come to you, O beloved of the Messenger of Allah, the son (child) of the Messenger of Allah. I am aware of your status and I acknowledge your rights. I am aware of your merits and the straying of those who opposed you. I have knowledge of the guidance you follow. I pray to Allah to keep my soul and the souls of my parents in service for your cause. O Allah, I appeal before You to grant salawat (favors and compensation to you worthy of Your services to His cause) just as You have granted favors and compensation worthy of his services to Your cause, and as Your messenger and ’Amir al-Mu’minin have appealed before You to grant compensation to him worthy of his services to Your cause. Grant him a continuous salat, connected, substituted one, following the other without break in time or point of time at this time and when we are here or not here. (I hereby declare, affirm and acknowledge that you are a ‘Alayhi al-Salam and my) submission to (your commandments) and appeal before Allah to grant you protection, kindness and blessings’. “When you decide to say farewell to him say, ’(I hereby declare, affirm and acknowledge that you are a ‘Alayhi al-Salam and my) submission to (your commandments) and appeal before Allah to grant you protection and kindness and blessings. I leave you in the protection of Allah and offer you my greeting of peace. We believe in Allah, the Messenger of Allah and in what you have brought and guided to. We have followed the messenger, so list us among the witnesses. O Allah, do not make this the last chance for me to visit him and his seeing us. O Allah, I appeal before You to make us benefit from our love for him. O Allah, raise him to the praiseworthy position whereby You support through him Your religion, eliminate Your enemies, destroy those who commence a war against the family of Muhammad, ‘Alayhi al-Salam; You have promised so and You do not change Your promise. (I hereby declare, affirm and acknowledge that you are a ‘Alayhi al-Salam and my) submission to (your commandments and I appeal before Allah to grant you protection, kindness and blessings. I testify that you are noble martyrs who strove hard for the cause of Allah and were murdered while protecting the institution of the Messenger of Allah, O Allah, grant salawat (favors and compensation to Muhammad and his family worthy of their services to Your cause) with protection and safety a great deal.’”

2. A number of our people have narrated from Ahmad ibn Muhammad from al-Qasim ibn Yahya from his grandfather al-Hassan ibn Rashid from al-Husayn ibn Thuwayr who has said the following: “Once Yunus ibn Zabayan, al-Mufaddal ibn ‘Umar, abu Salmah al-Sarraj and I were sitting in the presence of abu ‘Abd Allah, ‘Alayhi al-Salam. Among us Yunus, who was the eldest did the speaking and he said, ‘I pray to Allah to keep my soul in service for your cause, I sometimes attend the meeting of these people, meaning children of al-‘Abbas, what should I say?’ He (the Imam) said, ‘When you are in their meeting and you speak of us then say, “O Allah, show us comfort and happiness,” in saying this you come up with what you want.’ I then said, ‘I pray to Allah to keep my soul in service for your cause, I very often speak of al-Husayn, ‘Alayhi al-Salam, what I should say?’ He (the Imam) said, ‘Say, ‘Sala’ Allah ‘Alayka O abu ‘Abd Allah, I appeal before Allah to grant you salawat (favors and compensation to you worthy of Your services to His cause), three times. Al-Salam reaches him from nearby as well as distant places.’ He (the Imam) then said, ‘When abu ‘Abd Allah, ‘Alayhi al- Salam, passed away, the seven heavens and the seven earths wept. Everything between them, those who move in paradise and in hell, all that our Creator has created, all that can be seen and those that cannot be seen wept for abu ‘Abd Allah, al-Husayn ‘Alayhi al-Salam. Only three things did not weep.’ I then asked, ‘I pray to Allah to keep my soul in service for your cause, what are these three things?’ He (the Imam) said, ‘Things that did not weep were al-Basrah, Damascus and Ale ‘Uthman who did not weep, may Allah’s condemnation be upon them.’ I then said, ‘I want to visit him. What should I do?’ He (the Imam) said, ‘When you want to visit abu ‘Abd Allah, ‘Alayhi al-Salam, take a bath in al- Furat canal, then dress up in clean cloths, walk bare-foot; you are in a sacred location of Allah and the sacred locations of His Messenger. You must say Takhir (Allah is great beyond description), Tahlil (no one deserves worship except Allah). Tasbih, (Allah is free of all defects), Tahmid (all praise belongs to Allah) and Ta‘zim (Allah the most great is free of all defects) of Allah, the Most Majestic, the Most Glorious, a great deal as well as saying, O Allah, grant salawat (favors and compensation to Muhammad and his family worthy of their services to Your cause). When you arrive at the door of al- Hayr then say, ‘(I hereby declare, affirm and acknowledge that you are a ‘Alayhi al-Salam and my) submission to (your commandments) O the one who possesses authority from Allah, and son of the one who possesses authority from Allah. I offer greeting of peace to you, O angels of Allah, and visitors of the gravesite of the grandchild of the prophet of Allah.’ Then take ten steps forward, then stand up and say Takhir (Allah is great beyond description) thirty times. Then move forward until you reach in front of him. Turn your face toward his face and your back toward the direction of Ka‘bah, then say, ‘(I hereby declare, affirm and acknowledge that you are a ‘Alayhi al-Salam and my) submission to (your commandments), O Tha’ra Allah (wergild for whom belongs to Allah) son of Tha’ra Allah. (I hereby declare, affirm and acknowledge that you are a ‘Alayhi al-Salam and my) submission to (your commandments) O Watru (the oppressed one who belong to the side of Allah) Allah al-Mawtur in heavens and on earth. I testify that your blood lives in eternity because of which the shadows of the Throne shudder, for which all creatures in all seven heavens, seven earths, all that is between them, all that moves in paradise and in hell of the creatures of our Lord, things that can be seen and those that cannot be seen weep. I testify that you possess authority from Allah and you are the son of one who possesses authority from Allah. I testify that you were murdered and your father was murdered as well. I testify that you are Tha’ra Allah son of Tha’ra Allah. I testify that you are watru Allah al-Mawtur in the heaves and on earth. I testify that you preached, gave good advice, remained loyal, accomplished the task assigned to you and strove hard for the cause of Allah and passed away for the cause, which you cherished, as a martyr seeking martyrdom, and a witness and witnessed to. I am a servant of Allah under your guardianship, obedient to your commandments, and one of your visitors who seek perfect position before Allah and steadfastness in migrating toward you and in the way without wavering toward you until arriving in your custodianship, which you maintain and you are commanded to maintain. Whomever Allah wants He begins with you. Through you, falsehood becomes clear where falsehood is, through you Allah keeps away the difficult times, through you Allah commences and with you Allah ends a task. Through you Allah deletes whatever He wills and through you He establishes whatever He wills. Through you He opens up humiliation from around our necks and through you Allah brings to justice the murderers of every believer. Through you the earth grows its trees. Through you the trees yield their fruits. Through you Allah sends down rain and sustenance from the sky. Through you Allah removes hardship and through you Allah sends down heavy rain. Through you the earth, which carries your bodies, stands solid and mountains remain firm against swirling. The will of the Lord about the measurements of affairs descends before you and comes out from your homes as well as the decisions about rules dealing with affairs of servants (of Allah). Condemned is the group who murdered you and the group who opposed you, the group who rejected your divine authority, the group who came against you openly and the group who witnessed but did not seek martyrdom. All praise belongs to Allah who has made hellfire their dwelling, which is the worst place in which to disembark and the worst place for the arriving ones and a worst arrival place. All praise belongs to Allah, Lord of the worlds. I appeal before Allah to grant salawat (favors and compensation to you worthy of your services to His cause), O abu ‘ Abd Allah. We before Allah denounce all of those who opposed you’ - three times. ‘Then stand up and go to his son, Ali who is near his feet, and say, “I offer to you my greeting of peace, O son of the grandson of the Messenger of Allah. I offer you my greeting of peace, O grandson of ’Amir al-Mu’minin Ali. I offer you my greeting of peace, O child of al-Hassan and al-Husayn. I offer you my greeting of peace, O great grandson of Khadijah and Fatimah. I appeal before Allah to grant you favors worthy of your services to His cause. Allah has condemned those who murdered you”- say it three times. “I, before Allah denounce them”- three times. Then say, making a hand gesture toward the martyrs, “I offer you my greeting of peace”- three times. “(I am certain that), by Allah, you have achieved success and you have become successful. I wish I was with you and gained a great success.” Then you should go around keeping the gravesite of abu ‘Abd Allah before you, then perform six Rak‘at salat (prayer). Your visit is complete and you may leave if you wish.’”

3. A number of our people have narrated from Sahl ibn Ziyad from Muhammad ibn ‘Uramah from certain individuals of our people who has said the following: “Abu al-Hassan Sahib al- ‘Askar, ‘Alayhi al-Salam, has said, near the head of al-Husayn, ‘Alayhi al- Salam, you should say this. ‘(I hereby declare, affirm and acknowledge that you are a ‘Alayhi al-Salam and my) submission to (your commandments), O abu ‘Abd Allah. (I hereby declare, affirm and acknowledge that you are a ‘Alayhi al-Salam and my) submission to (your commandments), O possessor of authority of Allah on His earth and a witness over His creatures.

I testify that you performed salat (prayer), paid zakat, commanded people to do good and forbade them from doing evil deeds and strove hard for the cause of Allah until the time of your death. I appeal before Allah to grant salawat (favors and compensation to you worthy of your services to His cause) during the lifetime as well as after death.’ “Thereafter place the right side of your face on the grave and say, ‘I testify that you had clear proof about your Lord. I have come to confess to my sins so you may intercede on my behalf before your Lord, O grandson of the Messenger of Allah,’ then mention the names of ’A’immah, ‘Alayhi al-Salam, one by one and say, T testify that you are possessors of authority of Allah.’ Then say, ‘Please, write down before you, as pledge and covenant that I came before you to renew the covenant, so bear witness for me before your Lord that you are the witness.’” NOTE:Muhammad ibn Ja’far al-Raziy al-Kufiy has narrated from Muhammad ibn ‘Isa ibn ‘Ubayd from those whom he has mentioned from abu al-Hassan, ‘Alayhi al-Salam, a similar Hadith.
