Hadith #4

4 حَدَّثَنِي أَبِي وَ أَخِي وَ عَلِيُّ بْنُ الْحُسَيْنِ وَ مُحَمَّدُ بْنُ الْحَسَنِ عَنْ مُحَمَّدِ بْنِ يَحْيَى الْعَطَّارِ عَنْ حَمْدَانَ بْنِ سُلَيْمَانَ النَّيْسَابُورِيِّ عَنْ عَبْدِ اللَّهِ بْنِ مُحَمَّدٍ الْيَمَانِيِّ عَنْ مَنِيعِ بْنِ الْحَجَّاجِ عَنْ يُونُسَ بْنِ عَبْدِ الرَّحْمَنِ عَنْ حَنَانِ بْنِ سَدِيرٍ عَنْ أَبِيهِ سَدِيرٍ قَالَ قَالَ أَبُو عَبْدِ اللَّهِ (ع) يَا سَدِيرُ تَزُورُ قَبْرَ الْحُسَيْنِ (ع) فِي كُلِّ يَوْمٍ- قُلْتُ لَا قَالَ مَا أَجْفَاكُمْ قَالَ أَ تَزُورُهُ فِي كُلِّ جُمُعَةٍ قُلْتُ لَا قَالَ فَتَزُورُهُ فِي كُلِّ شَهْرٍ قُلْتُ لَا قَالَ فَتَزُورُهُ فِي كُلِّ سَنَةٍ قُلْتُ قَدْ يَكُونُ ذَلِكَ قَالَ يَا سَدِيرُ مَا أَجْفَاكُمْ بِالْحُسَيْنِ (ع) أَ مَا عَلِمْتَ أَنَّ لِلَّهِ أَلْفَ مَلَكٍ شُعْثاً غُبْراً يَبْكُونَهُ وَ يَرِثُونَهُ لَا يَفْتُرُونَ زُوَّاراً لِقَبْرِ الْحُسَيْنِ وَ ثَوَابُهُمْ لِمَنْ زَارَهُ وَ ذَكَرَ الْحَدِيثَ

4. My father, my brother, ‘Ali ibn Ĥusain, and Muĥammad ibn Ĥasan all narrated to me from Muĥammad ibn Yaĥyā Al-‘Aťťār, from Ĥamdān ibn Sulaymān Al-Naysābūri, from ‘Abdillāh ibn Muĥammad Al-Yamāni, from Manǐ’ ibn Ĥajjāj, from Yūnus ibn ‘Abdil Raĥmān, from Ĥanān ibn Sadǐr, from his father Sadǐr, who said: Abū ‘Abdillāh (Imam Šādiq (a.s.)) asked me, “O Sadǐr! Do you perform the Ziyārah of the grave of Ĥusain (a.s.) everyday?” I replied, “No.” Imam (a.s.) said, “How negligent you people are!!! Do you perform his Ziyārah every week?” I replied, “No.” Imam (a.s.) asked, “Do you perform his Ziyārah every month?” I replied, “No.” Imam (a.s.) asked, “Do you perform his Ziyārah once a year?” I replied, “Sometimes.” Imam (a.s.) said: O Sadǐr! How negligent you people are toward Ĥusain (a.s.)!!! Do you not know that Allāh has one thousand angels who are disheveled and covered with dust, who lament and cry over Ĥusain (a.s.), and who perform the Ziyārah of his grave (at all times) without pause?! Verily the reward of their deeds is registered for those who go to the Ziyārah of Ĥusain (a.s.).
