Kāmil al-Ziyārāt > The Reward for Establishing the Obligatory and “Nāfilah” Prayers Next to the Grave of Ĥusain (a.s.)
Hadith #4

4 حَدَّثَنِي الْحَسَنُ بْنُ عَبْدِ اللَّهِ بْنِ مُحَمَّدِ بْنِ عِيسَى عَنْ أَبِيهِ عَنِ الْحَسَنِ بْنِ مَحْبُوبٍ عَنِ الْعَلَاءِ بْنِ رَزِينٍ عَنْ شُعَيْبٍ الْعَقَرْقُوفِيِّ عَنْ أَبِي عَبْدِ اللَّهِ (ع) قَالَ قُلْتُ لَهُ مَنْ أَتَى قَبْرَ الْحُسَيْنِ (ع) مَا لَهُ مِنَ الثَّوَابِ وَ الْأَجْرِ جُعِلْتُ فِدَاكَ قَالَ يَا شُعَيْبُ مَا صَلَّى عِنْدَهُ أَحَدٌ الصَّلَاةَ إِلَّا قَبِلَهَا اللَّهُ مِنْهُ وَ لَا دَعَا عِنْدَهُ أَحَدٌ دَعْوَةً إِلَّا اسْتُجِيبَ لَهُ عَاجِلةً وَ آجِلَةً فَقُلْتُ جُعِلْتُ فِدَاكَ زِدْنِي فِيهِ قَالَ يَا شُعَيْبُ أَيْسَرُ مَا يُقَالُ لِزَائِرِ الْحُسَيْنِ بْنِ عَلِيٍّ (ع) قَدْ غُفِرَ لَكَ يَا عَبْدَ اللَّهِ فَاسْتَأْنِفْ عَمَلًا جَدِيداً

4. Ĥasan ibn ‘Abdillāh ibn Muĥammad ibn ‘Isā narrated to me from his father, from Ĥasan ibn Maĥbūb, from ‘Alā ibn Razǐn, from Shu’ayb Al-‘Aqraqūfi, who said: I asked Abā ‘Abdillāh (Imam Šādiq (a.s.)), “May I sacrifice myself for you! What is the reward and the recompense for those who go to (the Ziyārah of) the grave of Ĥusain (a.s.)?” Imam (a.s.) replied, “O Shu’ayb! No one establishes prayers next to him without Allāh accepting it and no one prays for anything next to him without it being fulfilled (either) immediately or in the future.” I said, “May I sacrifice myself for you! Tell me more.” Imam (a.s.) replied: O Shu’ayb! The least (rewarding statement) with which a Zā`ir of Ĥusain ibn ‘Ali (a.s.) will be addressed is: O Slave of Allāh! Verily your (past) sins have been forgiven. Therefore, start again with new deeds.
