Ziyarat of Imam Husain (as) is Obligatory!!!

Muhammad ibn Muslim narrates from Imam Muhammad Baqir (as) who said:


عن أبي جعفر عليه السلام قال : مُروا شيعتَنا بزيارة قبر الحسين عليه السلام ، فإن إتيانه مفترض على كل مؤمن يقر للحسين عليه السلام بالإمامة مِن الله عزَّوجلَّ

"Order our shia to go to the Ziyarah of the grace of Husain (as). Verily going to his Ziyarah is obligatory on every believer who testifies that Husain (as) is an Imam appointed by Allah, the Great and Almighty."

Ubaydillah ibn Musa narrates from Al-Washa who said:

قال : سمعت الرِّضا عليه السلام يقول : إنَّ لِكلِّ إمام عَهدا في عنق أوليائه وشيعته ، وإنَّ مِن تمام الوَفاء بالعهد وحُسن الأداء زيارة قبورهم ، فمن زارهم رَغبة في زيارتهم وتَصديقاً لما رَغّبوا فيه كان أئمّتُهم شُفعاءَهم يوم القيامة


I heard Imam Riza (as) say:

"There is a binding contract on every Shia and follower toward his Imam and the most perfect and beautiful way to fulfill this contract is to go to the Ziyarah of the grave of that Imam.

On the Day of Judgement, the Imams (as) will intercede for those who go to their Ziyarah while longing for it and believing in that which they have been ordered to believe."

Um Sa'id Al-Ahmasiyyah narrates:

عن أبي عبدالله عليه السلام قالت : قال لي : يا اُمّ سعيد تزورين قبر الحسين؟ قالت : قلت : نَعَم ، فقال لي زوريه؛ فإنَّ زيارة قبر الحسين واجبة على الرّجال والنّساء

Abu Abdillah [Imam Sadiq (as)] asked me:

"O Um Said! Do you go to the Ziyarah of the grace of Husain (as)?"

I replied: "Yes."

Imam (as) said: "Go to his Ziyarah, for verily going to the Ziyarah of the grace of Husain (as) is WAJIB (mandatory) on both men and women.

Abdil Rahman ibn Kuthayr - the servant of Imam Baqir (as) narrates:

عن أبي عبدالله عليه السلام قال : لو أنَّ أحدكم حجّ دَهْره ، ثمّ لم يَزُرِ الحسين بن عليِّ عليهما السلام لكان تاركاً حقّا مِن حقوق الله وحقوق رَسول الله صلّى الله عليه وآله وسلّم ، لاُنَّ حقَّ الحسين فَرِيضة مِن اللهِ ، واجبةٌ على كلِّ مسلم


Abu Abdillah [ Imam Sadiq (as) ] said:

"Even if you go to Hajj every year of your life but do not go to the Ziyarah of Husain ibn Ali (as) you have abandoned one of your obligations towards Allah (swt) and his Messenger (saww)."

"Verily Allah (swt) has made it mandatory the right of Husain (as) and this (Ziyarah) is obligatory on every Muslim.
