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.

"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.
