1ـ مُحَمَّدُ بْنُ يَحْيَى عَنْ مُحَمَّدِ بْنِ الْحُسَيْنِ عَنْ مُحَمَّدِ بْنِ إِسْمَاعِيلَ عَنِ الْحِمْيَرِيِّ عَنِ الْحُسَيْنِ بْنِ مُحَمَّدٍ الْقُمِّيِّ قَالَ قَالَ الرِّضَا (عَلَيْهِ السَّلاَم) مَنْ زَارَ قَبْرَ أَبِي بِبَغْدَادَ كَمَنْ زَارَ قَبْرَ رَسُولِ الله (صلَّى اللهُ عَلَيْهِ وَآلِه) وَقَبْرَ أَمِيرِ الْمُؤْمِنِينَ صَلَوَاتُ الله عَلَيْهِ إِلاَّ أَنَّ لِرَسُولِ الله وَلأَمِيرِ الْمُؤْمِنِينَ صَلَوَاتُ الله عَلَيْهِمَا فَضْلَهُمَا.


1. Muhammad ibn Yahya has narrated from Muhammad ibn al-Husayn from Muhammad ibn Isma‘il from al-Himyariy from al-Husayn ibn Muhammad al-Qummiy who has said the following: “Al-Rida’, ‘Alayhi al-Salam, has said, ‘Whoever visits my father in Baghdad is like one who has visited the Messenger of Allah, O Allah, grant compensation to Muhammad and his family worthy of their services to Your cause, and the grave of ’Amir al-Mu’minin. O Allah, I appeal before You to grant salawat (favors and compensation to Muhammad and his family worthy of their services to Your cause). Except, however, the Messenger of Allah and ’Amir al-Mu’minin have their own special merits.’”

2. Muhammad ibn Yahya has narrated from Ahmad ibn Muhammad from al-Hassan ibn Ali al-Washsha’ who has said the following: “I once asked al-Rida’, ‘Alayhi al-Salam, ‘Is visiting the grave of abu al-Hassan, ‘Alayhi al-Salam, like visiting the grave of al-Husayn, ‘Alayhi al-Salam ?’ He (the Imam) replied, ‘Yes, it is so.’”

3ـ مُحَمَّدُ بْنُ يَحْيَى عَنْ حَمْدَانَ الْقَلانِسِيِّ عَنْ عَلِيِّ بْنِ مُحَمَّدٍ الْحُضَيْنِيِّ عَنْ عَلِيِّ بْنِ عَبْدِ الله بْنِ مَرْوَانَ عَنْ إِبْرَاهِيمَ بْنِ عُقْبَةَ قَالَ كَتَبْتُ إِلَى أَبِي الْحَسَنِ الثَّالِثِ (عَلَيْهِ السَّلاَم) أَسْأَلُهُ عَنْ زِيَارَةِ أَبِي عَبْدِ الله الْحُسَيْنِ وَعَنْ زِيَارَةِ أَبِي الْحَسَنِ وَأَبِي جَعْفَرٍ (عَلَيْهِ السَّلاَم) أَجْمَعِينَ فَكَتَبَ إِلَيَّ أَبُو عَبْدِ الله (عَلَيْهِ السَّلاَم) الْمُقَدَّمُ وَهَذَا أَجْمَعُ وَأَعْظَمُ أَجْراً.


3. Muhammad ibn Yahya has narrated from Hamdan al-Qalanisiy from Ali ibn Muhammad al-Hudayniy from Ali ibn ‘Abd Allah ibn Marwan from Ibrahim ibn ‘Uqbah who has said the following: “I once wrote to abu al-Hassan, ‘Alayhi al-Salam, the 3rd, asking him about visiting abu ‘Abd Allah, al-Husayn, ‘Alayhi al-Salam, and about visiting abu al-Hassan and abu Ja‘far, ‘Alayhim al-Salam. He (the Imam) wrote back to me this: ‘Visiting abu ‘Abd Allah, ‘Alayhi al-Salam, has a greater priority and it has more and complete greater rewards.’”
