1ـ مُحَمَّدُ بْنُ يَحْيَى عَنْ مُحَمَّدِ بْنِ الْحُسَيْنِ عَنْ مُحَمَّدِ بْنِ إِسْمَاعِيلَ بْنِ بَزِيعٍ عَنْ صَالِحِ بْنِ عُقْبَةَ عَنْ زَيْدٍ الشَّحَّامِ قَالَ قُلْتُ لأَبِي عَبْدِ الله (عَلَيْهِ السَّلاَم) مَا لِمَنْ زَارَ أَحَداً مِنْكُمْ قَالَ كَمَنْ زَارَ رَسُولَ الله (صلَّى اللهُ عَلَيْهِ وَآلِه).


1. Muhammad ibn Yahya has narrated from Muhammad ibn al-Husayn from Muhammad ibn Isma‘il ibn Bazi’ from Salih ibn ‘Uqbah from Zayd al-Shahham who has said the following: “I once asked abu ‘ Abd Allah, ‘Alayhi al-Salam, ’What is the reward for one who visits anyone of you?’ He (the Imam) replied, ‘It is like visiting the Messenger of Allah, O Allah, grant compensation to Muhammad and his family worthy of their services to Your cause.”’

2ـ أَبُو عَلِيٍّ الأَشْعَرِيُّ عَنْ مُحَمَّدِ بْنِ عَبْدِ الْجَبَّارِ عَنْ مُحَمَّدِ بْنِ سِنَانٍ عَنْ مُحَمَّدِ بْنِ عَلِيٍّ رَفَعَهُ قَالَ قَالَ رَسُولُ الله (صلَّى اللهُ عَلَيْهِ وَآلِه) يَا عَلِيُّ مَنْ زَارَنِي فِي حَيَاتِي أَوْ بَعْدَ مَوْتِي أَوْ زَارَكَ فِي حَيَاتِكَ أَوْ بَعْدَ مَوْتِكَ أَوْ زَارَ ابْنَيْكَ فِي حَيَاتِهِمَا أَوْ بَعْدَ مَوْتِهِمَا ضَمِنْتُ لَهُ يَوْمَ الْقِيَامَةِ أَنْ أُخَلِّصَهُ مِنْ أَهْوَالِهَا وَشَدَائِدِهَا حَتَّى أُصَيِّرَهُ مَعِي فِي دَرَجَتِي.


2. Abu Ali al-Ash’ariy has narrated from Muhammad ibn ‘Abd al-Jabbar from Muhammad ibn Sinan from Muhammad ibn Ali in a marfu‘ manner who has said the following: “He (the Imam), ‘Alayhi al-Salam has said that the Messenger of Allah, O Allah, grant compensation to Muhammad and his family worthy of their services to Your cause, informed Ali, ‘Alayhi al-Salam, as follows. ‘O Ali, whoever visits me during my life time or after my death, visits you during your lifetime or after your death, or visits anyone of your two sons during their lifetime or after their death, I guarantee him on the Day of Judgment freedom from its horrors and sufferings until I keep him with me at my position.’”

3ـ مُحَمَّدُ بْنُ يَحْيَى عَنْ حَمْدَانَ بْنِ سُلَيْمَانَ عَنْ عَبْدِ الله بْنِ مُحَمَّدٍ الْيَمَانِيِّ عَنْ مَنِيعِ بْنِ الْحَجَّاجِ عَنْ يُونُسَ بْنِ أَبِي وَهْبٍ الْقَصْرِيِّ قَالَ دَخَلْتُ الْمَدِينَةَ فَأَتَيْتُ أَبَا عَبْدِ الله (عَلَيْهِ السَّلاَم) فَقُلْتُ جُعِلْتُ فِدَاكَ أَتَيْتُكَ وَلَمْ أَزُرْ أَمِيرَ الْمُؤْمِنِينَ (عَلَيْهِ السَّلاَم) قَالَ بِئْسَ مَا صَنَعْتَ لَوْ لا أَنَّكَ مِنْ شِيعَتِنَا مَا نَظَرْتُ إِلَيْكَ أَ لا تَزُورُ مَنْ يَزُورُهُ الله مَعَ الْمَلائِكَةِ وَيَزُورُهُ الأَنْبِيَاءُ وَيَزُورُهُ الْمُؤْمِنُونَ قُلْتُ جُعِلْتُ فِدَاكَ مَا عَلِمْتُ ذَلِكَ قَالَ اعْلَمْ أَنَّ أَمِيرَ الْمُؤْمِنِينَ (عَلَيْهِ السَّلاَم) أَفْضَلُ عِنْدَ الله مِنَ الأَئِمَّةِ كُلِّهِمْ وَلَهُ ثَوَابُ أَعْمَالِهِمْ وَعَلَى قَدْرِ أَعْمَالِهِمْ فُضِّلُوا.


3. Muhammad ibn Yahya has narrated from Hamdan ibn Sulayman from ‘Abd Allah ibn Muhammad al-Yemaniy from Mani‘ ibn al- Hajjaj from Yunus ibn Wahab al-Qasriy who has said the following: “I once entered al-Madinah, visited abu ‘Abd Allah, ‘Alayhi al-Salam, and said to him, ‘I pray to Allah to keep my soul in service for your cause, I have come to you but I have not visited ’Amir al- Mu’minin.’ He (the Imam) said, ‘You have done a bad thing. Were you not one of our followers, I would not have looked at you. Why should you not visit one whom Allah along with the angels visit, the prophets and believers visit?’ I then said, ‘I pray to Allah to keep my soul in service for your cause, I did not know that.’ He (the Imam) said, ‘You must take notice that ’Amir al-Mu’minin is more excellent before Allah than all of ’A’immah, ‘Alayhim al-Salam. For him is the reward for their deeds and the degree of excellence is according to the measure of their deeds.’”
