Peace be on you, O Abal Hasan, and mercy and blessings of Allah be on you.

 

O Allah I had left my place of domicile to go towards Thee, and crossed many a town in the hope of getting Thy mercy, therefore, do not disappoint me, do not send me away without awarding that which I need, have mercy on my restless agitation near the son of Thy Messenger's brother, Thy blessings be on him and on his children.

 

My father and mother are at your disposal O my Mawlaa! I have come to visit you, adore you and take refuge with you from the excesses I indulged into, from the burden of sins I carry on my back, so, in the day of distress, be my advocate before Allah, because you enjoy special privileges in the presence of Allah, and He shows respect for you and brings honour to you.

 

O Allah I seek Thy nearness through my love and friendship for them (the Ahlul Bayt), I love each and every one of them, from the first to the last, and avoid intimate association with anyone other than the Ahlul Bayt Curse of Allah be on those who subverted Thy "Favour" suspected Thy Prophet to be guilty of falsehood, denied Thy revelation, laugh at Thy representatives, and gave preference to nonentities over the "Aali Muhammad.

O Allah I seek Thy nearness by calling down curses on them, I keep myself aloof from them in this world and in the Hereafter, O Beneficent!

Blessings of Allah be on you, O Abal Hasan!

Blessings of Allah be on your soul and your body! You suffered patiently and exercised self-control, (although) you were truthful and your truthfulness had been confirmed; Allah destroyed him who gave the orders to kill you, and him who carried it out.

Ziyarah of Imam al-Riza (a.s)([1])

It is highly advisable to visit the Holy Shrine of Imam al-Riza (a.s) in Rajab, since it enjoys a special rank in this month:

Whenever you intend to visit Imam al-Riza (a.s) in ±us, then perform the ritual bath before you leave your house (at your hometown) and say the following while you are performing the ritual bath:

اَللَّهُمَّ طَهِّرْنِي وَطَهِّرْ قَلْبِي

allahumma tahhirne wa-tahhir qalbe

O God! Please cleanse me, and cleanse my heart!

وَاشْرَحْ لِي صَدْرِي

wa’shrah le sadre

(Please) ‘expand my breast’,

وَأَجْرِ عَلَى لِسَانِي مِدْحَتَكَ وَالثَّنَاءَ عَلَيْكَ

wa’ajri ‘ala lisane midhatika wa-ththana’i ‘alayka

and let Thy praise and eulogy flow out from my tongue

فإنَّهُ لا حَوْلَ وَلا قُوَّةَ إلاَّ بِكَ.

fa’innahu la hawla wa la quwwata illa bika.

since indeed there is no power but in Thee.

اَللّهُمَّ اجْعَلْهُ لِي طَهُوراً وَشِفاءً.

allahumma-j’alhu le tahuran wa-shifa’a(n)

O God! Please establish it as a means of cleansing and treatment for me.

Say the following as you leave your house:

بِسْم اللهِ الرَّحْمَنِ الرَّحِيمِ

bismil-lahir-rahmanir-rahem.

In the name of God, the Beneficent, the Merciful.

بِسْمِ اللهِ، وَبِاللهِ،

bismillahi wa-billahi

In the name of God. By God,

وَإلَى اللهِ، وَإلِى ابْنِ رَسُولِ اللهِ.

wa-ilal-lahi wa-ilabni rasulil-lahi

I turn to God and towards the son of God’s Prophet.

حَسْبِيَ اللهُ، تَوَكَّلْتُ عَلَى اللهِ.

hasbiyal-lahu tawakkaltu ‘alal-lahi

God suffices me, and I rely on God.

اَللَّهُمَّ إلَيكَ تَوَجَّهْتُ، وَإلَيْكَ قَصَدْتُ،

allahumma ilayka tawajjahtu wa-ilayka qasadtu

O God! I have set out to Thee. And I have directed toward You,

وَما عِندَكَ أرَدْتُ.

wa-ma ‘indaka aradtu.

And I have decided (to get) what is near Thee.

When you go out stop at the door of your house and say:

اللّهُمَّ إِلَيْكَ وَجَّهْتُ وَجْهِي،

allahumma ilayka wajjahtu wajhe

O God! I have turned my face towards Thee.

 وَعَلَيْكَ خَلَّفْتُ أَهْلِي وَمَالِي وَولدِي وَمَا خَوَّلْتَنِي،

wa’alayka khallaftu ahle wa-male wa-walade wa-ma khawwaltane

And I have left behind my family, wealth and whatever Thee have granted me.

 وَبِكَ وَثِقْتُ فَلا تُخَيِّبْنِي يَا مَنْ لا يُخَيَّبُ مَنْ أَرَادَهُ،

wa-bika wathiqtu fala tukhayyibne ya man la yukhayyabu man aradahu

I have trusted Thee. Then (please) do not turn me into a loser, O the One who would not make a loser anyone whom Thee wish,

 وَلا يُضَيَّعُ مَنْ حَفِظَهُ،

wa-la yuzayya’u man hafizhahu

and will not ruin whatever he possesses.

 صَلِّ عَلَى مُحَمَّدٍ وَآلِ مُحَمَّدٍ

salli ‘ala muhammadin wa-ali muhammadin

Blessings be upon Muhammad and Muhammad’s Household.

وَاحْفَظْنِي بِحِفْظِكَ

wa-hfazhne bi-hifzhika

And (please) guard me under Thy custody

فَإِنَّهُ لا يَضِيعُ مَنْ حَفِظْتَ.

fa-innahu la yaze`u man hafizht(a).

since nothing that Thee guard gets ruined.

Then whenever you want to go to visit, perform the ritual bathing and while you are bathing say:

اللّهُمَّ طَهِّرْنِي،

allahumma tahhirne

O God! Please cleanse me,

وَطَهِّرْ لِي قَلْبِي،

wa-tahhir qalbe

and cleanse my heart!

وَاشْرَحْ لِي صَدْرِي،

wa’shrah le sadre

(Please) ‘expand my breast’;

وَأَجْرِ عَلَى لِسَانِي مِدْحَتَكَ وَمَحَبَّتَكَ وَالثَّنَاءَ عَلَيْكَ،

wa-ajri ‘ala lisane mid-hatika wa-mahabbatika wa’th-thana`i ‘alayka

and let Thy praise, love and eulogy flow out from my tongue

فَإِنَّهُ لا قُوَّةَ إِلاَّ بِكَ،

fa-innahu la quwwata illa bika

since indeed there is no power but in Thee.

وَقَدْ عَلِمْتُ أَنَّ قِوَامَ دِينِي التَّسْلِيمُ لأَمْرِكَ،

wa-qad ‘alimtu anna qiwama dene al-taslemu li-amrika

I have indeed realized that the strength of my religion depends upon my submission to Thy decrees,

وَالإتِّبَاعُ لِسُنَّةِ نَبِيِّكَ،

walit-tiba’u li-sunnati nabiyyika

and the following of Thy Prophet’s traditions,

وَالشَّهَادَةُ عَلَى جَمِيعِ خَلْقِكَ،

wash-shahadatu ‘ala jame’i khalqika

and bearing witness (to this) for all Thy creatures.

اللّهُمَّ اجْعَلْهُ لِي شِفَاءً وَنُوراً

allahumma-j’alhu le shifa`an wa-nuran

O God! Please establish it as a means of healing for me, and as a light,

إِنَّكَ عَلَى كُلِّ شَيْءٍ قَدِيرٌ.

innaka ‘ala kulli shay’in qader.

since Thee are capable of all things.

Then put on your cleanest clothes.

Walk with bare feet, with calmness, dignity, exaltation, acclamation and glorification of God; that is, you may repeat the following statements:

اللّهُ أَكْبَرُ،

allahu akbaru

Allah is the Most Great

لا إِلهَ إِلاَّ اللّهُ،

la ilaha illallahu

There is no god save Allah

سُبْحَانَ اللّهِ،

subhanallahi

All glory be to Allah

الْحَمْدُ لِلّهِ.

alhamdu lillahi

All praise be to Allah

Take short steps and while you are entering (the holy shrine) say:

بِسْم اللهِ الرَّحْمَنِ الرَّحِيمِ

bismillahir-rahmanir-rahem

In the name of God, the Beneficent, the Merciful.

بِسْمِ اللّهِ،  وَبِاللّهِ،

bismil-lahi wa-billahi

In the name of God and by God

 وَعَلَى مِلَّةِ رَسُولِ اللّهِ صَلَّى اللّهُ عَلَيْهِ وَآلِهِ،

wa-‘ala millati rasulil-lahi sallal-lahu ‘alayhi wa-alih.

and to the nation of God’s Prophet: God’s blessings be upon him and his Household.

 أَشْهَدُ أَنْ لا إِلهَ إِلاَّ اللّهُ وَحْدَهُ لا شَرِيكَ لَهُ،

ash-hadu an-la ilaha wahdahu la shareka lahu

I bear witness that there is no god but Allah. He is One and He has no partners.

 وَأَشْهَدُ أَنَّ مُحَمَّداً عَبْدُهُ وَرَسُولُهُ،

wa-ash-hadu anna muhammadan ‘abduhu wa-rasuluhu

And I bear witness that Muhammad is His Servant and His Messenger.

 وَأَنَّ عَلِيّاً وَلِيُّ اللّهِ.

wa-anna ‘aliyyan waliyyu’l-lah.

And I bear witness that Ali is God’s friend.

Then walk until you stop at his tomb. Then face him by turning your back towards the Qibla (prayer direction) and say:

أَشْهَدُ أَنْ لا إِلهَ إِلاَّ اللّهُ وَحْدَهُ لا شَرِيكَ لَهُ،

ash-hadu an la ilaha illal-lahu wahdahu la shareka lahu

I bear witness that there is no god but God, the One; and there are no partners for Him.

 وَأَشْهَدُ أَنَّ مُحَمَّداً عَبْدُهُ وَرَسُولُهُ،

wa-ash-hadu anna muhammadan ‘abduhu wa-rasuluhu

I bear witness that Muhammad is His Servant and His Messenger.

 وَأَنَّهُ سَيِّدُ الأَوَّلِينَ وَالآخِرِينَ،

wa-annahu sayyidu’l-awwalena wa’l-akhirena

Verily, he is the Master of all those of old and those of later times.

 وَأَنَّهُ سَيِّدُ الأَنْبِيَاءِ وَالْمُرْسَلِينَ.

wa-annahu sayyidu’l-anbiya`i wa’l-mursalen.

Verily, he is the Master of the Prophets and the Messengers.
