Kāmil al-Ziyārāt > Permission Not to Perform the Ghusl Before the Ziyārah of Ĥusain (a.s.)
Hadith #6

6 حَدَّثَنِي الْحَسَنُ بْنُ الزِّبْرِقَانِ الطَّبَرِيُّ بِإِسْنَادٍ لَهُ يَرْفَعُهُ إِلَى الصَّادِقِ (ع) قَالَ قُلْتُ رُبَّمَا أَتَيْنَا قَبْرَ الْحُسَيْنِ (ع) فَيَصْعُبُ عَلَيْنَا الْغُسْلُ لِلزِّيَارَةِ مِنَ الْبَرْدِ أَوْ غَيْرِهِ فَقَالَ (ع) مَنِ اغْتَسَلَ فِي الْفُرَاتِ وَ زَارَ الْحُسَيْنَ (ع) كُتِبَ لَهُ مِنَ الْفَضْلِ مَا لَا يُحْصَى فَمَتَى مَا رَجَعَ إِلَى الْمَوْضِعِ الَّذِي اغْتَسَلَ فِيهِ وَ تَوَضَّأَ وَ زَارَ الْحُسَيْنَ (ع) كُتِبَ لَهُ ذَلِكَ الثَّوَابُ

6. Ĥasan ibn Zibriqān Al-Ťabari narrated to me through his Isnād, from someone who said: I said to Imam Šādiq (a.s.), “Sometimes when we go to the Ziyārah of Ĥusain (a.s.), it is difficult to perform Ghusl because of the cold (climate) or for other reasons.” Imam (a.s.) replied, “So many merits will be registered for those who go to the Euphrates (River) and perform Ghusl in it before going to the Ziyārah of Ĥusain (a.s.), that they cannot be counted. And if they return anytime (in the future) to the place where they performed Ghusl, and (instead) perform Wuďū before going to the Ziyārah of Ĥusain (a.s.), the same (extent of) rewards will be registered for them.”
