Responsibility 41: Visiting the Places the Imam Visits
Another responsibility of the believers is to go to those places where this is a possibility that the Imam visits such as Masjid al-Sahlah (in ‘Iraq), Masjid Jamkaran (in Iran) and other places, especially at the specific times which have been mentioned that he may be there1 the gatherings in which the greatness and traits of the Imam and the other infallible A`immah are mentioned.
Programs to commemorate the marriage of the Sadat and the ‘Ulama and especially those gatherings in which the Sadat scholars who also possess the qualities of abstaining from sins and who adhere to piety are present, gatherings in which the troubles that befell the Ahlul Bayt are mentioned programs in which the teachings of Allah and in which the infallible A`immah are remembered.
Especially the days which are relevant to them such as ‘Ashura, ‘Eid al-Fitr, Thursday night and other days accompanying the dead bodies of the scholars and those who love the Imam especially the true Shi’a to their burial site are all programs and gatherings which a true believer should be present in.
In addition, the joyous occasions which take place during the year such as ‘Eid al-Ghadir, ‘Eid al-Qurban, the Nights of Qadr in the Month of Ramaďhan and others, are also times in which Imam al-Hujjah (ajtf) is present and thus, we should also be sure to take part in programs which are held around these great days.
