 This Ziarat is for 1st Rajab, 15th Rajab and 15th Shaabaan. It is related from Imam Sadiq (a.s.) that one who performs the Ziarat of Imam Husain (a.s.) on 1st Rajab would be forgiven by Allah. It is narrated from Ibne Abi Nasr that he asked Imam Rida (a.s.) what was the best time for the Ziarat of Imam Husain (a.s.). He (a.s.) replied: 15th Rajab and 15th Shaabaan.

Shaykh Mufeed (a.r.) and Sayyid Ibne Taaoos (r.a.) have mentioned that this Ziarat is for 1st Rajab and 15th Shaabaan, but Shaheed (r.a.) has prescribed it for 1st eve of Rajab, eve and day of 15th Rajab and 15th Shaabaan.

All praise be to Allah; the Most High, the All-great.

Peace be upon you; O the righteous, pure servant (of Allah).

I entrust with you a testimony of mine that takes me near you on the day of your intercession (for some people).

I bear witness that although you were slain, you have not died;

Rather the hearts of your adherents (Shi`ah) are living on the hope of your being alive;

And by the light of your illumination have those seeking you been guided (to the right path).

And I bear witness that you are verily the Light of Allah that has not and shall never be extinguished.

And you are verily the Face of Allah that has not and shall never be perishing.

And I bear witness that this soil is yours,

And this holy precinct is yours.

And this death is the death of your body only,

While you have never been humiliated since Allah is the One Who is pouring honor upon you

And you have never been defeated since Allah is the One Who is supporting you.

I would like you to keep this testimony of mine with you up to the day when my soul will be grasped in the presence of you.

Peace and Allah’s mercy and blessings be upon you.
