Kāmil al-Ziyārāt > The Reward for the Ziyārah of Ĥusain (a.s.) on the Day of ‘Āshūrā
Hadith #1

1 حَدَّثَنِي أَبِي وَ أَخِي وَ جَمَاعَةُ مَشَايِخِي عَنْ مُحَمَّدِ بْنِ يَحْيَى عَنْ مُحَمَّدِ بْنِ عَلِيٍّ الْمَدَائِنِيِّ قَالَ أَخْبَرَنِي مُحَمَّدُ بْنُ سَعِيدٍ الْبَجَلِيُّ عَنْ قَبِيصَةَ عَنْ جَابِرٍ الْجُعْفِيِّ قَالَ دَخَلْتُ عَلَى جَعْفَرِ بْنِ مُحَمَّدٍ (ع) فِي يَوْمِ عَاشُورَاءَ فَقَالَ لِي هَؤُلَاءِ زُوَّارُ اللَّهِ وَ حَقٌّ عَلَى الْمَزُورِ أَنْ يُكْرِمَ الزَّائِرَ مَنْ بَاتَ عِنْدَ قَبْرِ الْحُسَيْنِ (ع) لَيْلَةَ عَاشُورَاءَ لَقِيَ اللَّهَ مُلَطَّخاً بِدَمِهِ يَوْمَ الْقِيَامَةِ كَأَنَّمَا قُتِلَ مَعَهُ فِي عَرْصَتِهِ [عَصْرِهِ] وَ قَالَ مَنْ زَارَ قَبْرَ الْحُسَيْنِ (ع) أَيْ يَوْمَ عَاشُورَاءَ وَ [أَوْ] بَاتَ عِنْدَهُ كَانَ كَمَنِ اسْتُشْهِدَ بَيْنَ يَدَيْهِ

1. My father, my brother and all of my scholars narrated to me from Muĥammad ibn Yaĥyā, from Muĥammad ibn ‘Ali Al-Madā`ini, from Muĥammad ibn Sa’ǐd Al-Bajali, from Qabǐšah, from Jābir Al-Ju’fi, who said: I went to Ja’far ibn Muĥammad (Imam Šādiq (a.s.)) on the Day of ‘Āshūrā and he said to me (as part of a longer Ĥadǐth): These – referring to the Zuwwār of Ĥusain (a.s.) – are the Zuwwār of Allāh and it is an obligation on the host to honour the Zā`ir. Those who spend the night of ‘Āshūrā next to the grave of Ĥusain (a.s.) will meet Allāh on the Day of Judgment stained with their blood as if they were killed with him on his desert (Karbalā). Those who go to the Ziyārah of the grave of Ĥusain (a.s.) on the Day of ‘Āshūrā and spend the night next to his grave are like those who were martyred in front of Ĥusain (a.s.).
