Kāmil al-Ziyārāt > The Ziyārah of Ĥusain (a.s.): The Best of Deeds
Hadith #4

4 حَدَّثَنِي أَبُو الْعَبَّاسِ الْكُوفِيُّ عَنْ مُحَمَّدِ بْنِ الْحُسَيْنِ عَنِ الْحَسَنِ بْنِ مَحْبُوبٍ عَنْ رَجُلٍ عَنْ أَبَانٍ الْأَزْرَقِ عَنْ رَجُلٍ عَنْ أَبِي عَبْدِ اللَّهِ (ع) قَالَ مِنْ أَحَبِّ الْأَعْمَالِ إِلَى اللَّهِ تَعَالَى زِيَارَةُ قَبْرِ الْحُسَيْنِ (ع) وَ أَفْضَلُ الْأَعْمَالِ عِنْدَ اللَّهِ إِدْخَالُ السُّرُورِ عَلَى الْمُؤْمِنِ وَ أَقْرَبُ مَا يَكُونُ الْعَبْدُ إِلَى اللَّهِ تَعَالَى وَ هُوَ سَاجِدٌ بَاكٍ

4. Abul ‘Abbās Al-Kūfi narrated to me from Muĥammad ibn Ĥusain, from Ĥasan ibn Maĥbūb, from someone, from Abān Al-Azraq, from someone who said: Abū ‘Abdillāh (Imam Šādiq (a.s.)) said: One of the deeds most loved by Allāh, the Exalted, is going to the Ziyārah of the grave of Ĥusain (a.s.), and the best deed in the eyes of Allāh is pleasing a believer. And the closest that a slave can be to Allāh, the Exalted, is when he is crying in the state of prostration.
