Rich reward promised to visitor of Masumeen (as)’ graves

By: Fatimah

Visiting the holy shrines of holy Prophet Muhammad (peace of Allah be upon him & his pure progeny)’s infallible descendants - the Imams (peace of Allah be upon them) - and to greet them reciting Ziyarah are within the rights against their adherents as an expression of loyalty to them.

There are tens of narrations related by the Ahlul-Bayt (peace of Allah be upon them) about the great rewarding, grand merit and rich credit obtained to the visitor due to the visit to the Imams (peace of Allah be upon them)’ shrines.

*Amir-ul-Mu'minin Imam Ali Ibn-e-Abi Talib (peace of Allah be upon him) narrated: “We served the Prophet (s), who visited us, some of the milk, butter and dates that Ummu Ayman had given to us. After he had had some, he moved to a corner to offer a prayer. He wept a lot during the last prostration of that prayer. Due to great awe of him none of us could ask him. Al-Hussein then approached him and said: “Father, the greatest pleasure that we had ever felt was at these moments when you visit us. But we also felt great sorrow when we noticed you weeping. What for are you weeping?” “Son,” answered the Prophet (s), “The angel Gabriel has just come to me to foretell that you all will be killed in different areas of this earth.” “Father,” asked al-Hussein, “What will be the reward of him who visits us in such different areas?” The Prophet (s) answered: “There will be groups of my ummah visiting your tombs for seeking blessings. I engage myself with the pledge that I, on the Day of Resurrection, will come to save them from the horrors of the Hour of Resurrection that they will suffer because of their sins. Allah will surely make Paradise their abode.”

[Bihar-ul-Anwar; 22/ 7 (as quoted from Kamil uz-Ziyara and al-Amuli)]

*Sixth Imam Jafar As-Sadiq (peace of Allah be upon him) said: “He who visits one of us is as same as him who visits the Messenger of Allah (s).”

[Bihar-ul-Anwar; vol. 22, page 6 (as quoted from Oyounu Akhbar ir-Riza, Ilal-ush-Sharaayi, and Ibn Qolawayh’s Kamil-uz-Ziyara)]

*Imam al-Kazim (peace of Allah be upon him) said: “On the day of Resurrection, there will stand on the Divine Throne four individuals from the past generations and four from the later generations. Noah, Abraham, Moses, and Jesus are the four individuals from the past generations. Mohammed, Ali, al-Hasan, and al-Hussein are the four individuals from the later generations. Then, food will be served. Those who visited the shrines of the Imams will be invited to that food. The visitors of my son’s shrine will be the foremost and the most favorable.”

[Bihar-ul-Anwar; vol. 22, page 6 (as quoted from al-Kafi)]

*Imam Ar-Riza (peace of Allah be upon him) said: “The followers and Shia of each Imam are involved in a pledge that they should fulfill for him. The pilgrimage to the Imam’s shrine is a sign of the perfection of fulfilling that pledge. Hence, the Imam, on the Day of Resurrection, will intercede to him who visits his shrine out of desire and credence to the Imam.”

[Bihar-ul-Anwar; vol. 22, page 6 (as quoted from Oyounu Akhbar ir-Riza, Ilal-ush-Sharaayi, and Ibn Qolawayh’s Kamil-uz-Ziyara)]

Muntakheb Ul  Aqwaal
"Knowledge is better than wealth because it protects you while you have to guard wealth. it decreases if you keep on spending it but the more you make use of knowledge ,the more it increases . what you get through wealth disappears as soon as wealth disappears but what you achieve through knowledge will remain even after you."

(Hazrat Ali Ibne Abi Talib (A.S)
