1ـ مُحَمَّدُ بْنُ يَحْيَى عَنْ مُحَمَّدِ بْنِ الْحُسَيْنِ عَنْ مُحَمَّدِ بْنِ إِسْمَاعِيلَ عَنْ صَالِحِ بْنِ عُقْبَةَ عَنْ بَشِيرٍ الدَّهَّانِ قَالَ قُلْتُ لأَبِي عَبْدِ الله (عَلَيْهِ السَّلاَم) رُبَّمَا فَاتَنِي الْحَجُّ فَأُعَرِّفُ عِنْدَ قَبْرِ الْحُسَيْنِ (عَلَيْهِ السَّلاَم) فَقَالَ أَحْسَنْتَ يَا بَشِيرُ أَيُّمَا مُؤْمِنٍ أَتَى قَبْرَ الْحُسَيْنِ (عَلَيْهِ السَّلاَم) عَارِفاً بِحَقِّهِ فِي غَيْرِ يَوْمِ عِيدٍ كَتَبَ الله لَهُ عِشْرِينَ حَجَّةً وَعِشْرِينَ عُمْرَةً مَبْرُورَاتٍ مَقْبُولاتٍ وَعِشْرِينَ حَجَّةً وَعُمْرَةً مَعَ نَبِيٍّ مُرْسَلٍ أَوْ إِمَامٍ عَدْلٍ وَمَنْ أَتَاهُ فِي يَوْمِ عِيدٍ كَتَبَ الله لَهُ مِائَةَ حَجَّةٍ وَمِائَةَ عُمْرَةٍ وَمِائَةَ غَزْوَةٍ مَعَ نَبِيٍّ مُرْسَلٍ أَوْ إِمَامٍ عَدْلٍ قَالَ قُلْتُ لَهُ كَيْفَ لِي بِمِثْلِ الْمَوْقِفِ قَالَ فَنَظَرَ إِلَيَّ شِبْهَ الْمُغْضَبِ ثُمَّ قَالَ لِي يَا بَشِيرُ إِنَّ الْمُؤْمِنَ إِذَا أَتَى قَبْرَ الْحُسَيْنِ (عَلَيْهِ السَّلاَم) يَوْمَ عَرَفَةَ وَاغْتَسَلَ مِنَ الْفُرَاتِ ثُمَّ تَوَجَّهَ إِلَيْهِ كَتَبَ الله لَهُ بِكُلِّ خُطْوَةٍ حَجَّةً بِمَنَاسِكِهَا وَلا أَعْلَمُهُ إِلاَّ قَالَ وَغَزْوَةً.

1. Muhammad ibn Yahya has narrated from Muhammad ibn al-Husayn from Muhammad ibn Isma‘il from Salih ibn ‘Uqbah from Bashir al-Dahhan who has said the following: “I once said to abu ‘ Abd Allah, ‘Alayhi al-Salam, ‘I may miss performing al-Hajj, so I spend the day of ‘Arafah near the gravesite of al-Husayn, ‘Alayhi al-Salam .’ He (the Imam) said, ‘That is very good, O Bashir. If anyone of believing people visits the gravesite of al-Husayn, ‘Alayhi al-Salam, with proper awareness of his rights on a day other than the day of ‘Id, Allah writes for him the reward for twenty Hajjah. (He writes for him) the reward for twenty accepted ‘Umrah, well-performed, twenty Hajjah and al-‘Umrah in the company of a prophet who is sent as a messenger and an Imam of justice. If one visits his gravesite on the day of Td, Allah writes for him the reward for one hundred Hajjah, one hundred ‘Umrah, one hundred times an armed campaign against the enemies of Allah in support of a prophet who is sent as a messenger or an Imam of justice.’ I (the narrator) then asked, ‘How can this be for me like staying in ‘Arafat?’ He (the narrator) has said that he (the Imam) looked at me as if with anger then said, ‘O Bashir, take notice of this. When a believing person comes to the gravesite of al-Husayn, ‘Alayhi al-Salam, on the day of ‘Arafah, after taking a bath in al-Furat and comes to him, Allah writes for him for every step, one Hajjah performed with its acts’ - I do not know else, except, until he said, ‘and an armed campaign against the enemies of Allah.’”
