What else could be a greater merit for Ziyarate Aashoora than to be the 'Word of Allah' (Hadithe Qudsi)? No other Ziyarat bears this eminence and superiority. The difference between the Holy Quran and Ziyarate Aashoora is the same as the difference between the Holy Quran and Hadithe Qudsi. If the words from Allah claim to be a miracle from the aspect of meaning and concept, then they are the verses of the Holy Quran. But if there is no claim of miracle from the aspect of meaning and concept, then these divine words are called as 'Hadithe Qudsi'. And if the concept is from Allah, but the words are those of the Holy Prophet (s.a.w.a.), then it is called as 'Hadith'. However there is no doubt that this Ziyarat is Hadithe Qudsi.

Banam wa Bata'eedaat-e-Khudawand Bakhshanda'e meherban der zille Tawajjuhaat Hazrat Wali Asr Ajja Lallahu Ta'ala Farajahu ibtada me kunam.

These words, which consist of Allah's praise, are the opening of dua'a. The effect which occurs and spreads over the heart and mind for the abundance of His favour, blessings and graciousness before dua'a, demands that the songs of His praise be over flown in speech. Who on one side has opened the door of question by saying:

"Ask Allah for His mercy and grace".
and on the other side by saying:

"pray to me, I will accept"

has taken the responsibility of fulfilling the prayers. Therefore, we too start our website with it.
