Hadith #1

1 حَدَّثَنِي مُحَمَّدُ بْنُ عَبْدِ اللَّهِ بْنِ جَعْفَرٍ الْحِمْيَرِيُّ عَنْ أَبِيهِ عَنْ عَلِيِّ بْنِ مُحَمَّدِ بْنِ سَالِمٍ عَنْ مُحَمَّدِ بْنِ خَالِدٍ عَنْ عَبْدِ اللَّهِ بْنِ حَمَّادٍ الْبَصْرِيِّ عَنْ عَبْدِ اللَّهِ بْنِ عَبْدِ الرَّحْمَنِ الْأَصَمِّ عَنْ مُحَمَّدٍ الْبَصْرِيِّ عَنْ أَبِي عَبْدِ اللَّهِ (ع) قَالَ سَمِعْتُ أَبِي يَقُولُ لِرَجُلٍ مِنْ مَوَالِيهِ وَ سَأَلَهُ عَنِ الزِّيَارَةِ فَقَالَ لَهُ مَنْ تَزُورُ وَ مَنْ تُرِيدُ بِهِ قَالَ اللَّهَ تَبَارَكَ وَ تَعَالَى فَقَالَ مَنْ صَلَّى خَلْفَهُ صَلَاةً وَاجِبَةً [وَاحِدَةً] يُرِيدُ بِهَا اللَّهَ لَقِيَ اللَّهَ يَوْمَ يَلْقَاهُ وَ عَلَيْهِ مِنَ النُّورِ مَا يُغْشَى لَهُ كُلُّ شَيْءٍ يَرَاهُ وَ اللَّهُ يُكْرِمُ زُوَّارَهُ وَ يَمْنَعُ النَّارَ أَنْ تَنَالَ مِنْهُمْ شَيْئاً وَ إِنَّ الزَّائِرَ لَهُ لَا يُتَنَاهَى [لَا يُتَنَاسَى] لَهُ دُونَ الْحَوْضِ وَ أَمِيرُ الْمُؤْمِنِينَ (ع) قَائِمٌ عَلَى الْحَوْضِ يُصَافِحُهُ وَ يُرَوِّيهِ مِنَ الْمَاءِ- وَ مَا يَسْبِقُهُ أَحَدٌ إِلَى وُرُودِهِ الْحَوْضَ حَتَّى يَرْوَى ثُمَّ يَنْصَرِفُ إِلَى مَنْزِلِهِ مِنَ الْجَنَّةِ- وَ مَعَهُ مَلَكٌ مِنْ قِبَلِ أَمِيرِ الْمُؤْمِنِينَ يَأْمُرُ الصِّرَاطَ أَنْ يَذِلَّ لَهُ وَ يَأْمُرُ النَّارَ أَنْ لَا يُصِيبَهُ مِنْ لَفْحِهَا شَيْءٌ حَتَّى يَجُوزَهَا وَ مَعَهُ رَسُولُهُ الَّذِي بَعَثَهُ أَمِيرُ الْمُؤْمِنِينَ ع

1. Muĥammad ibn ‘Abdillāh ibn Ja’far Al-Ĥimyari narrated to me from his father, from ‘Ali ibn Muĥammad ibn Sālim, from Muĥammad ibn Khālid, from ‘Abdillāh ibn Ĥammād Al-Bašri, from ‘Abdillāh ibn ‘Abdil Raĥmān Al-Ašam, from Muĥammad Al-Bašri, who said: Abū ‘Abdillāh (Imam Šādiq (a.s.)) said: I heard my father (Imam Bāqir (a.s.)) ask one of his servants, who had asked him about the Ziyārah (of Ĥusain (a.s.)), “To whose Ziyārah are you going and whom do you seek (to please) by going to this Ziyārah?” He (the servant) replied, “Allāh, the Blessed and the Exalted.” My father (Imam Bāqir (a.s.)) said: Those who establish one Šalāt behind the grave of Ĥusain (a.s.) seeking (nearness with) Allāh will meet Him on the Day of Judgment shining so brightly that the light (which emanates from them) will cover everything that looks at them. Allāh will honour those who go to the Ziyārah of Ĥusain (a.s.) and He will prevent the Fire from touching them. They will not be prevented from coming to the Pool and no one will precede them. The Commander of the Believers (a.s.) will be standing by the Pool and he will shake their hands and quench their thirst with the water. Then they will go to their dwellings in Paradise accompanied by an angel appointed by the Commander of the Believers (a.s.). This angel will order ŠIRĀŤ to humble itself before them and will order Hell not to touch them with its blazing fires. Therefore, they will pass Širāť accompanied by the angel which had been sent by the Commander of the Believers (a.s.).
