Ziyarat of Imam Husain (as) and reward for Hajj !!!

وَ حَدَّثَنِي مُحَمَّدُ بْنُ الْحَسَنِ عَنْ مُحَمَّدِ بْنِ الْحَسَنِ الصَّفَّارِ عَنْ أَحْمَدَ بْنِ مُحَمَّدِ بْنِ عِيسَى عَنْ أَبِيهِ عَنِ ابْنِ أَبِي عُمَيْرٍ عَنْ هِشَامِ بْنِ الْحَكَمِ عَنْ عَبْدِ الْكَرِيمِ بْنِ حَسَّانَ قَالَ قُلْتُ لِأَبِي عَبْدِ اللَّهِ (ع) مَا يُقَالُ إِنَّ زِيَارَةَ قَبْرِ الْحُسَيْنِ (ع) تَعْدِلُ حِجَّةً وَ عُمْرَةً قَالَ فَقَالَ إِنَّمَا الْحَجُّ وَ الْعُمْرَةُ هَاهُنَا وَ لَوْ أَنَّ رَجُلًا أَرَادَ الْحَجَّ وَ لَمْ يَتَهَيَّأْ لَهُ فَأَتَاهُ كَتَبَ اللَّهُ لَهُ حِجَّةً وَ لَوْ أَنَّ رَجُلًا أَرَادَ الْعُمْرَةَ وَ لَمْ يَتَهَيَّأْ لَهُ كُتِبَتْ لَهُ عُمْرَةٌ

Imam Sadiq (as) was asked, "What does it, mean when it is said that Ziyarat of Imam Husain (as) is equal to a Hajj and an Umrah?"
Imam (as) replied, "Indeed Hajj and Umrah can only be performed here (in Makkah). But if one intends to perform Hajj but does not have the means to do so and goes to Imam Husain (as) instead, Allah will record a Hajj for him. Similarly if someone decides to perform an Umrah, but does not have the means to do so and goes to Imam Husain (as) instead, an Umrah will be recorded for him.

حَدَّثَنِي مُحَمَّدُ بْنُ الْحَسَنِ عَنْ مُحَمَّدِ بْنِ الْحَسَنِ الصَّفَّارِ عَنْ مُحَمَّدِ بْنِ عِيسَى بْنِ عُبَيْدٍ عَنْ أَبِي سَعِيدٍ الْقَمَّاطِ عَنِ ابْنِ أَبِي يَعْفُورٍ قَالَ سَمِعْتُ أَبَا عَبْدِ اللَّهِ (ع) يَقُولُ لَوْ أَنَّ رَجُلًا أَرَادَ الْحَجَّ وَ لَمْ يَتَهَيَّأْ لَهُ ذَلِكَ فَأَتَى قَبْرَ الْحُسَيْنِ (ع) فَعَرَّفَ عِنْدَهُ يُجْزِيهِ ذَلِكَ عَنِ الْحَجِّ

Imam Sadiq (as) said: "If one intends to go for Hajj, but does not have the means to do so and goes to the Ziyarat of Imam Husain (a.s.) instead and spends Arafah Day at his grave, his Ziyarat will be considered as equivalent to Hajj.

وَ بِإِسْنَادِهِ عَنْ يُونُسَ عَنِ الرِّضَا (ع) قَالَ مَنْ زَارَ قَبْرَ الْحُسَيْنِ (ع) فَقَدْ حَجَّ وَ اعْتَمَرَ قَالَ قُلْتُ يَطْرَحُ عَنْهُ حِجَّةَ الْإِسْلَامِ قَالَ لَا هِيَ حِجَّةُ الضَّعِيفِ حَتَّى يَقْوَى- وَ يَحُجَّ إِلَى بَيْتِ اللَّهِ الْحَرَامِ

Imam Reza (as) said: "One who performs the Ziyarat of Imam Husain (as) has performed a Hajj and an Umrah.
I (the narrator) asked, “Does it replace Hajj of Islam?”
Imam (as) replied: No, it is recorded as Hajj for one who does not have the means of going to Hajj until the means become available to him to perform Hajj of the sacred house of Allah"
