Imam Sadiq (as) prays for the Visitors of Imam Husain (as)


وبهذا الإسناد ، عن موسى بن عُمَرَ ، عن حَسّان البصريّ ، عن معاويةَ بن وَهْب « قال : استأذنت على أبي عبدالله عليه‌السلام فقيل لي : اُدخل ، فدخلت فوجدته في مصلاّه في بيته فجلست حتّى قضى صلاته فسمعته يناجي رَبَّه وهو يقول : « اللّهُمَّ يا مَنْ خَصَّنا بالْكَرامَةِ؛ وَوَعَدَنا بالشَّفاعَةِ؛ وَخَصَّنا بالوَصيَّةِ؛ وأعْطانا عِلمَ ما مَضى وعِلْمَ ما بَقيَ؛ وَجَعَلَ أفْئدَةً مِنَ النّاسً تَهْوِي إلَيْنا ، اغْفِرْ لي ولإخْواني وَزُوَّارِ قَبر أبي الحسين ، الَّذين أنْفَقُوا أمْوالَهُمْ وَأشخَصُوا أبْدانَهم رَغْبَةً في بِرِّنا ، وَرَجاءً لِما عِنْدَكَ في صِلَتِنا ، وسُروراً أَدْخَلُوهُ عَلى نَبِيِّكَ ، وَإجابَةً مِنهُمْ لأمْرِنا ، وَغَيظاً أدْخَلُوهُ عَلى عَدُوِّنا ، أرادُوا بذلِكَ رِضاكَ ، فَكافِئْهُمْ عَنّا بالرِّضْوانِ ، واكْلأهُم باللَّيلِ وَالنَّهارِ ، واخْلُفْ عَلىُ أهالِيهم وأولادِهِمُ الَّذين خُلِّفوا بأحْسَنِ الخَلَفِ وأصحبهم ، وَأكْفِهِمْ شَرَّ كلِّ جَبّارٍ عَنيدٍ؛ وَكُلّ ضَعيفٍ مِنْ خَلْقِكَ وَشَديدٍ ، وَشَرَّ شَياطِينِ الإنْسِ وَالجِنِّ ، وَأعْطِهِم أفْضَلَ ما أمَّلُوا مِنْكَ في غُرْبَتِهم عَنْ أوْطانِهِم ، وَما آثَرُونا بِهِ عَلى أبْنائهم وأهاليهم وقَراباتِهم ،

اللّهُمَّ إنَّ أعْداءَنا عابُوا عَلَيهم بخُروجهم ، فَلم يَنْهِهم ذلِكَ عَنِ الشُّخوصِ إلينا خِلافاً مِنْهم عَلى مَنْ خالَفَنا ، فارْحَم تِلْكَ الْوُجُوهَ الَّتي غَيَّرتها الشَّمْسُ ، وَارْحَم تِلكَ الخدُودَ الَّتي تَتَقَلّبُ على حُفْرَةِ أبي عَبدِاللهِ الحسينِ عليه‌السلام ، وَارْحَم تِلكَ الأعْيُنَ الَّتي جَرَتْ دُمُوعُها رَحمةً لَنا ، وارْحَم تِلْكَ الْقُلُوبَ الَّتي جَزَعَتْ واحْتَرقَتْ لَنا ، وارْحَم تِلكَ الصَّرْخَةَ الَّتي كانَتْ لَنا ، اللّهمَّ إني اسْتَودِعُكَ تِلْكَ الأبْدانَ وَتِلكَ الأنفُسَ حتّى تَرْويهمْ عَلى الحَوضِ يَومَ العَطَشِ [الأكبر] » :

فما زال يدعو عليه‌السلام وهو ساجدٌ بهذا الدُّعاء ، فلمّا انصرف قلت : جُعِلتُ فِداك لو أنَّ هذا الَّذي سَمعتُ منك كان لِمن لا يَعرفُ اللهَ عزَّوجَلَّ لَظننتُ أنَّ النّار لا تطعم منه شَيئاً أبداً!! والله لقد تمنَّيتُ أنّي كنتُ زُرْتُه ولم أحُجَّ ، فقال لي : ما أقربك منه؛ فما الَّذي يمنعك مِن زيارته؟ ثمَّ قال : يا معاويةُ لَم تدع ذلك ، قلت : جُعلتُ فِداك لَم أرَ أنَّ الأمر يبلغ هذا كلّه؟ فقال : يا معاوية [و] مَن يدعو لزُوَّاره في السَّماء أكثر ممّن يدعو لهم في الأرض


From Mu'awiya bin Wahb who said,

I asked permission to meet Imam Sadiq (as). When I entered, I found him on his prayer mat in his house praying. I waited until he finished his prayers and then I heard him recite the following supplication: 

"O Allah! O one who has chosen us for honor, promised us right of intercession, chosen us as successors, gave us the knowledge of the past and that which is to come and made the hearts of people inclined for us! Forgive me and my brothers who perform the Ziyarat of my grandfather, Imam Husain (as) and those who spend their wealth to travel, put their bodies to trouble seeking our pleasure in hope of the reward You have kept for associating with us."

"They perform the Ziyarat of Imam Husain (as) to make Your Prophet happy, to obey our commands and to antagonize our enemies. By this, they want to please You, so reward them on our behalf by Rizwan, protect them day and night, compensate their families and children whom they left behind in the best way and befriend them, keep them away from the harm of every insolent tyrant and every weak or strong one from Your creation, keep them away from the evil of every devil from among men and Jinn, grant them the best of that which they have requested while they are away from their homes for having preferred us over their families, children and relatives."

"O Allah! Our enemies have criticized them for going to our Ziyarat but that did not restrain them from coming to us and they went against our opponents. So have mercy on faces changed by the sun in our love. Have mercy on those cheeks which were placed on the grave of Imam Husain (as). Have mercy on those eyes which shed tears on us with sympathy. Have mercy on those hearts which have become restless/anxious and feeling burned for us and have mercy on their loud crying (screams) for us. O Allah! I entrust these bodies and souls to you till the day of great thirst when you will quench their thirst with Hauz Kauthar."

Muawiyah Ibne Wahab continued: Imam (as) continued this supplication in prostration. When he finished, I said: "May I be sacrificed on you! I think that if this supplication is in favor of even those who don’t know Allah, the Mighty and Sublime, I think that Hellfire will not touch them! By Allah, I wish I had gone to the Ziyarat of Imam Husain (as), instead of going to Hajj."

Imam (as) said, "You live so close. What prevents you from his Ziyarat? O Muawiyah! Don’t forsake it?"
I replied, “May I be sacrificed on you! I did not think that it was so important and it had such great rewards."
Imam (as) said, "Muawiyah! Those who pray for the visitors of Imam Husain (as) in the heavens are more than those who pray for them on earth."
