Hadith #3

3 حَدَّثَنِي الْحَسَنُ بْنُ عَبْدِ اللَّهِ عَنْ أَبِيهِ عَنِ الْحَسَنِ بْنِ مَحْبُوبٍ عَنِ الْعَلَاءِ بْنِ رَزِينٍ عَنْ مُحَمَّدِ بْنِ مُسْلِمٍ عَنْ أَبِي جَعْفَرٍ (ع) قَالَ لَوْ يَعْلَمُ النَّاسُ مَا فِي زِيَارَةِ قَبْرِ الْحُسَيْنِ (ع) مِنَ الْفَضْلِ لَمَاتُوا شَوْقاً وَ تَقَطَّعَتْ أَنْفُسُهُمْ عَلَيْهِ حَسَرَاتٍ- قُلْتُ وَ مَا فِيهِ قَالَ مَنْ أَتَاهُ تَشَوُّقاً كَتَبَ اللَّهُ لَهُ أَلْفَ حِجَّةٍ مُتَقَبَّلَةٍ وَ أَلْفَ عُمْرَةٍ مَبْرُورَةٍ- وَ أَجْرَ أَلْفِ شَهِيدٍ مِنْ شُهَدَاءِ بَدْرٍ وَ أَجْرَ أَلْفِ صَائِمٍ وَ ثَوَابَ أَلْفِ صَدَقَةٍ مَقْبُولَةٍ- وَ ثَوَابَ أَلْفِ نَسَمَةٍ أُرِيدَ بِهَا وَجْهُ اللَّهِ وَ لَمْ يَزَلْ مَحْفُوظاً سَنَتَهُ مِنْ كُلِّ آفَةٍ أَهْوَنُهَا الشَّيْطَانُ وَ وُكِّلَ بِهِ مَلَكٌ كَرِيمٌ يَحْفَظُهُ مِنْ بَيْنِ يَدَيْهِ وَ مِنْ خَلْفِهِ وَ عَنْ يَمِينِهِ وَ عَنْ شِمَالِهِ وَ مِنْ فَوْقِ رَأْسِهِ وَ مِنْ تَحْتِ قَدَمِهِ فَإِنْ مَاتَ سَنَتَهُ حَضَرَتْهُ مَلَائِكَةُ الرَّحْمَةِ- يَحْضُرُونَ غُسْلَهُ وَ أَكْفَانَهُ وَ الِاسْتِغْفَارَ لَهُ وَ يُشَيِّعُونَهُ إِلَى قَبْرِهِ بِالاسْتِغْفَارِ لَهُ- وَ يُفْسَحُ لَهُ فِي قَبْرِهِ مَدَّ بَصَرِهِ وَ يُؤْمِنُهُ اللَّهُ مِنْ ضَغْطَةِ الْقَبْرِ وَ مِنْ مُنْكَرٍ وَ نَكِيرٍ أَنْ يروعانه [يُرَوِّعَاهُ- وَ يُفْتَحُ لَهُ بَابٌ إِلَى الْجَنَّةِ وَ يُعْطَى كِتَابَهُ بِيَمِينِهِ وَ يُعْطَى لَهُ يَوْمَ الْقِيَامَةِ نورا [نُورٌ يُضِيءُ لِنُورِهِ مَا بَيْنَ الْمَشْرِقِ وَ الْمَغْرِبِ وَ يُنَادِي مُنَادٍ هَذَا مَنْ زَارَ الْحُسَيْنَ شَوْقاً إِلَيْهِ فَلَا يَبْقَى أَحَدٌ يَوْمَ الْقِيَامَةِ إِلَّا تَمَنَّى يَوْمَئِذٍ أَنَّهُ كَانَ مِنْ زُوَّارِ الْحُسَيْنِ ع

3. Ĥasan ibn ‘Abdillāh narrated to me from his father (‘Abdillāh ibn Muĥammad ibn ‘Isā Al-Ash’ari), from Ĥasan ibn Maĥbūb, from ‘Alā ibn Razǐn, from Muĥammad ibn Muslim, who said: Abū Ja’far (Imam Bāqir (a.s.)) said, “If people knew the reward for going to the Ziyārah of the grave of Ĥusain (a.s.), their souls would leave their bodies out of remorse and they would die yearning for it.” I asked, “What is the reward for going to his Ziyārah?” Imam (a.s.) replied: Allāh will register the reward of one thousand accepted Hajj, one thousand purified ‘Umrah, one thousand martyrs from among the martyrs of (the Battle of) Badr, fasting of one thousand people, one thousand accepted ŠADAQAH, and the reward of freeing one thousand slaves in the way of Allāh for he who goes to the Ziyārah of Ĥusain (a.s.) yearning for him. He will be protected for one year from every plague, the least evil of which is Shayťān. And Allāh will dedicate an honourable angel to him who will protect him from the front, from behind, from the right side, from the left side, from over his head, and from under his feet. If he dies in that year, the angels of mercy will attend (the rituals of) his ablution and shrouding and they will seek forgiveness for him. They will also follow him in his funeral while seeking forgiveness for him. His grave will be widened as far as he can see and Allāh will keep him safe from the pressure of the grave and from being frightened by (angels) Munkar and Nakǐr. A door will also be opened from his grave to Paradise. On the Day of Judgment, his book (of deeds) will be placed in his right hand and he will shine with a light which illuminates everywhere from the east to the west. (On that day), a caller will call out, “This is a person who went to the Ziyārah of Ĥusain (a.s.) yearning for him.” Therefore, no one will remain on the Day of Judgment who will not wish he had gone to the Ziyārah of Ĥusain (a.s.).
