Hadith #8

8 حَدَّثَنِي أَبِي (رحمه الله) عَنِ الْحُسَيْنِ بْنِ الْحَسَنِ بْنِ أَبَانٍ عَنْ مُحَمَّدِ بْنِ أُورَمَةَ عَنْ أَبِي عَبْدِ اللَّهِ الْمُؤْمِنِ عَنِ ابْنِ مُسْكَانَ عَنْ سُلَيْمَانَ بْنِ خَالِدٍ قَالَ سَمِعْتُ أَبَا عَبْدِ اللَّهِ (ع) يَقُولُ عَجَباً لِأَقْوَامٍ يَزْعُمُونَ أَنَّهُمْ شِيعَةٌ لَنَا وَ يُقَالُ إِنَّ أَحَدَهُمْ يَمُرُّ بِهِ دَهْرَهُ وَ لَا يَأْتِي قَبْرَ الْحُسَيْنِ (ع) جَفَاءً مِنْهُ وَ [تَهَاوُناً وَ عَجْزاً وَ كَسَلًا تَهَاوَنَ وَ عَجَزَ وَ كَسِلَ أَمَا وَ اللَّهِ لَوْ يَعْلَمُ مَا فِيهِ مِنَ الْفَضْلِ مَا تَهَاوَنَ وَ لَا كَسِلَ قُلْتُ جُعِلْتُ فِدَاكَ وَ مَا فِيهِ مِنَ الْفَضْلِ قَالَ فَضْلٌ وَ خَيْرٌ كَثِيرٌ أَمَا أَوَّلُ مَا يُصِيبُهُ أَنْ يُغْفَرَ لَهُ مَا مَضَى مِنْ ذُنُوبِهِ وَ يُقَالَ لَهُ اسْتَأْنِفِ الْعَمَلَ

8. My father narrated to me from Ĥusain ibn Ĥasan ibn Abān, from Muĥammad ibn Ūramah, from Abǐ ‘Abdillāh Al-Mu`min, from Ibn Muskān, from Sulaymān ibn Khālid, who said: I heard Abā ‘Abdillāh (Imam Šādiq (a.s.)) say: It is strange that some people think that they are among our Shia but it is said that some of them do not go to (the Ziyārah of) the grave of Ĥusain (a.s.) even once in their lifetime because of their negligence, carelessness, incompetence, or laziness. I swear to Allāh that if they knew its merits they would not have been careless or lazy about it. I asked, “May I sacrifice myself for you! What are the merits of the Ziyārah (of Ĥusain (a.s.))?” Imam (a.s.) replied, “There are many merits and blessings in it. Verily the first (blessing) that one receives is that (all of) his past sins will be forgiven and he will be told, ‘Continue with good deeds.”
