Watch the video below with urdu dubbing :
In this incident, Imam-e-Zamana (a.t.f.s.), in the beginning mentions, ‘Recite Naafelah Shab’ Then he says ‘Recite Ziyaarat Jaameah’ and then he says ‘Recite Ziyaarate Aashoora ‘. Syed Rashty did not know either Ziyaarat-e-Jaameah or Ziyaarate Aashoora by heart. But the moment Imam (a.s.) asked him to recite them regularly, he knew both these Ziyaarats by heart.
Imam-e-Zamana (a.t.f.s.) helped Syed Rashty to reach his destination. On the way, Imam (a.s.) once asked him rhetorically, ‘Why don’t you recite the Naafelah prayers?’ Then he (a.s.) repeated thrice ‘Naafelah, Naafelah, Naafelah!’
Again, Imam (a.s.) asked him, ‘Why don’t you recite Ziyaarate Aashoora?’ Then Imam (a.s.) reiterated, ‘Aashoora, Aashoora, Aashoora!’ Once again, Imam (a.s.) asked Janab Rashty, ‘Why don’t you recite Ziyaarat-e-Jaameah?’
And then Imam (a.s.) emphasized thrice, ‘Jaameah, Jaameah, Jaameah!’
