The Miracles of Ziyarat Ashurah

There are several incidents over time which highlight the merits of reciting Ziyarate Ashurah – some of them are concerned with this world and others are concerned with the benefits which will accrue in the hereafter.

The purpose of highlighting these incidents is to encourage us to adopt the practice of reciting Ziyarate Ashurah regularly – daily, if possible. It is a Ziyarat which leads to the pleasure of Allah, His Prophet, the Ahle Bayt (as) and is a source of their nearness.

The most beneficial action for the Hereafter

 Shaykh Muhammad Hussain Ansari, was the son-in-law of the renowned Mujtahid, Shaykh Ansari. The former had many sons, one among them, i.e. Shaykh Murtaza was more popularly known as ‘Aqa-e-Shaykh Buzurg’ (The Great Shaykh). The latter was among the more learned scholars of Najaf.

 Shaykh Murtaza was born in 1289 A.H., and expired at the age of 33 years after being fatally bitten by a snake.


Recitation of Ziarat on behalf of Vali-e-Asr

The author of ‘Abqariyyul Hisan’ Shaykh Ali Akbar Nahavandi, has recorded about ‘Sayyed Ahmed who sent him one of his works in which he mentions an incident. The latter writes, ‘I was seated in one corner of Masjide Sehla. Suddenly, a Sayyed entered the room wearing a turban (amamah) and a black cloak (aba)…


A Means to Acquire Love for Imam (as)

Ayatullah Najafi Kochani relates, ‘I was completely mesmerized by Ziarate Ashoora from my past two experiences in Isfahan. My level of dependence and conviction had multiplied manifold. Thus when I entered the venerated city of Najaf, I began reciting the Ziarat from the very first Friday.


Struggle for Death

Ayatullah Najafi Kochani (r.a.), an extremely devout scholar of his time, was one of Mulla Akhund Khorasani’s most distinguished students. The former has mentioned a dream in he saw during his days in the Hauze Ilmiyya in Isfahan.

He saw death in the guise of a calf. It was enveloped by three to four children. These children were gliding over my house, until one of them sat on the wall of my house. This dream was most fascinating. Ayatullah Najafi wrote a letter to his father explaining the entire dream to seek its interpretation. In the end he requested his father to reply as soon as possible, regarding his health, so that he could rest assured. Ayatullah Najafi’s letter was still in transit, when he received a letter from his father. His father had written: Your mother has departed from this transient world for her eternal abode. For the Ziarat of Imam Hussain (a.s.), she had a incurred a debt of twelve tomaan, which now with interest has compounded to eighty tomaan.’


Repealing of chastisement

The significance of Ziyaarate Aashoora can be gauged from yet another incident. The previous incident reveals the benefit of Ziyaarate Aashoora for the one who recites it regularly. But the following incident depicts a really strange benefit of Ziyaarate Aashoora. It shows that the one who recites Ziyaarate Aashoora becomes a cause of the forgiveness of sins committed by others!

Marhoom Mohaddis Noori (r.a.) narrates an incident from Al-Haaj Mulla Hasan Yazdi, who was a pious and virtuous individual and was the caretaker of the shrine of Ameerul Momineen (a.s.). He was very religious and was always preoccupied in worship and Ziyaarat. Mulla Hasan, in turn narrates about Mohammed Ali Yazdi who too was a very respectable, devout and virtuous person. He too would always spend his time in acts of worship and in matters related to the Hereafter.


Incident of Samarrah – Deliverance from Plague

Shaheed-e-Mehraab, Ayatullah Dastghaib Shirazi (r.a.) narrates an incident from Ayatullah Uzma Shaikh Abdul Kareem Haayeree (r.a.), the founder of the Hauz-e-Ilmiyyah in Qum.

Janab Haayeree (r.a.) narrates, ‘I was residing in Samarrah to pursue religious studies. Once, the city was struck by a deadly plague. Scores of people were dying every day.

During those days, a group of religious scholars had gathered at the house of our teacher late Syed Mohammed Fesharki (r.a.). At that time, Janab Mirza Mohammed Taqi (r.a.) too came in that meeting. The talk turned towards the topic of plague and the devastation it was causing in terms of loss of lives.


Reward in Barzakh

The great and pious jurist, Marhoom Shaikh Jawad b. Shaikh Mashkoor, was a leading jurist of Najaf who died at the age of 90 years in 1337 A.H. He is buried next to his father in a room in the blessed courtyard of the grave of Ameerul Momineen (a.s.).

This great scholar dreamt in the night of 26 Safar 1332 A.H in which he saw Hazrat Izraeel – the angel of death (a.s.). He did salaam to the angel of death and asked him from where he was coming. The angel of death replied ‘I am coming from Shiraz after having seized the soul (Ruh) of Mirza Ibrahim Mehlaaki.’ Shaikh asked him ‘In what condition is his soul in Barzakh?’
