Ziarat of Imam Al Mahdi (a.s.)

السَّلامُ عَلَيْكَ يا خَليفةَ اللهِ وَخَلَيفةَ آبائِهِ الْمَهْدِيّينَ

اَلسَّلامُ عَلَيْكَ يا وَصِيَّ الاَوْصِياءِ الْماضينَ،

اَلسَّلامُ عَلَيْكَ يا حافِظَ اَسْرارِ رَبِّ الْعالَمينَ،

اَلسَّلامُ عَلَيْكَ يا بَقِيَّةَ اللهِ مِنَ الصَّفْوَةِ الْمُنْتَجَبينَ،

اَلسَّلامُ عَلَيْكَ يَا بْنَ الاَنْوارِ الزّاهِرَةِ،

اَلسَّلامُ عَلَيْكَ يَا بْنَ الاَعْلامِ الْباهِرَةِ،

اَلسَّلامُ عَلَيْكَ يَا بْنَ الْعِتْرَةِ الطّاهِرَةِ،

اَلسَّلامُ عَلَيْكَ يا مَعْدِنَ الْعُلُومِ النَّبَوِيَّةِ،

اَلسَّلامُ عَلَيْكَ يا بابَ اللهِ الَّذي لا يُؤْتى اِلّا مِنْهُ،

اَلسَّلامُ عَلَيْكَ يا سَبيلَ اللهِ الَّذي مَنْ سَلَكَ غَيْرَهُ هَلَكَ،

اَلسَّلامُ عَلَيْكَ يا ناظِرَ شَجَرَةِ طُوبى وَسِدْرَةِ الْمُنْتَهى،

اَلسَّلامُ عَلَيْكَ يا نُورَ اللهِ الَّذي لا يُطْفى،

اَلسَّلامُ عَلَيْكَ يا حُجَّةَ اللهِ الَّتي لا تَخْفى،

اَلسَّلامُ عَلَيْكَ يا حُجَّةَ اللهِ عَلى مَنْ فِي الاَرْضِ وَالسَّمآءِ،

اَلسَّلامُ عَلَيْكَ سَلامَ مَنْ عَرَفَكَ بِما عَرَّفَكَ بِهِ اللهُ،

وَنَعَتَكَ بِبَعْضِ نُعُوتِكَ الَّتي اَنْتَ اَهْلُها وَفَوْقُها،

اَشْهَدُ اَنَّكَ الْحُجَّةُ عَلى مَنْ مَضى وَمَنْ بَقِيَ،

وَاَنَّ حِزْبَكَ هُمُ الْغالِبُونَ

وَاَوْلِياءَكَ هُمُ الْفائِزُونَ

وَاَعْداءَكَ هُمُ الْخاسِرُونَ،

وَاَنَّكَ خازِنُ كُلِّ عِلْم،

وَفاتِقُ كُلِّ رَتْق،

وَمُحَقِّقُ كُلِّ حَقٍّ،

وَمُبْطِلُ كُلِّ باطِل،

رَضيتُكَ يا مَوْلايَ اِماماً وَهادِياً وَوَلِيّاً وَمُرْشِداً،

لا اَبْتَغي بِكَ بَدَلاً وَلا اَتَّخِذُ مِنْ دُونِكَ وَلِيّاً،

اَشْهَدُ اَنَّكَ الْحَقُّ الثّابِتُ الَّذي لا عَيْبَ فيهِ،

وَاَنَّ وَعْدَ اللهِ فيكَ حَقٌّ لا اَرْتابُ لِطُولِ الغَيْبَةِ وَبُعْدِ الاَمَدِ،

وَلا اَتَحَيَّرُ مَعَ مَنْ جَهِلَكَ وَجَهِلَ بِكَ،

مُنْتَظِرٌ مُتَوَقِّعٌ لاَِيّامِكَ، وَاَنْتَ الشّافِعُ الَّذي لا تُنازَعُ،

والْوَلِيُّ الَّذى لا تُدافَعُ،

ذَخَرَكَ اللهُ لِنُصْرَةِ الدّينِ وَاِعْزازِ الْمُؤْمِنينَ،

وَالاْنْتِقامِ مِنَ الْجاحِدينَ الْمارِقينَ،

اَشْهَدُ اَنَّ بِوِلايَتِكَ تُقْبَلُ الاَعْمالُ،

وَتُزَكَّى الاَفْعالُ،

وَتُضاعَفُ الْحَسَناتُ،

وَتُمْحَى السَّيِّئاتُ،

فَمَنْ جاءَ بِوِلايَتِكَ

وَاعْتَرَفَ بِاِمامَتِكَ

قُبِلَتْ اَعْمالُهُ

وَصُدِّقَتْ اَقْوالُهُ

وَتَضاعَفَتْ حَسَناتُهُ

وَمُحِيَتْ سَيِّئاتُهُ،

وَمَنْ عَدَلَ عَنْ وِلايَتِكَ

وَجَهِلَ مَعْرِفَتَكَ

وَاسْتَبْدَلَ بِكَ غَيْرَكَ

كَبَّهُ اللهُ عَلى مَنْخَرِهِ فِي النّارِ،

وَلَمْ يَقْبَلِ اللهُ لَهُ عَمَلاً

وَلَمْ يُقِمْ لَهُ يَوْمَ الْقِيامَةِ وَزْناً،

اُشْهِدُ اللهَ واُشْهِدُ مَلائِكَتَهُ وَاُشْهِدُكَ يا مَوْلايَ بِهذا،

ظاهِرُهُ كَباطِنِهِ

وَسِرُّهُ كَعَلانِيَتِهِ،

وَاَنْتَ الشّاهِدُ عَلى ذلِكَ،

وَهُوَ عَهْدي اِلَيْكَ وَميثاقي لَدَيْكَ،

اِذْ اَنْتَ نِظامُ الدّينِ،

وَيَعْسُوبُ الْمُتَّقينَ،

وَعِزُّ الْمُوَحِّدينَ،

وَبِذلِكَ اَمَرَني رَبُّ الْعالَمينَ،

فَلَوْ تَطاوَلَتِ الدُّهُورُ،

وَتَمادَتِ الاَعْمارُ،

لَمْ اَزْدَدْ فيكَ اِلّا يَقيناً وَلَكَ اِلّا حُبّاً،

وَعَلَيْكَ اِلّا مُتَّكَلاً وَمُعْتَمَداً،

وَلِظُهُورِكَ اِلّا مُتَوَقِّعاً وَمُنْتَظِرَاً،

وَلِجِهادي بَيْنَ يَدَيْكَ مُتَرَقِّباً،

فَاَبْذُلُ نَفْسي وَمالي وَوَلَدي وَاَهْلي وَجَميعَ ما خَوَّلَني رَبّي بَيْنَ يَدَيْكَ وَالتَّصَرُّفَ بَيْنَ اَمْرِكَ وَنَهْيِكَ،

مَوْلايَ فَاِنْ اَدْرَكْتُ اَيّامَكَ الزّاهِرَةَ

وَاَعْلامَكَ الْباهِرَةَ

فَها اَنـَا ذا عَبْدُكَ الْمُتَصَرِّفُ بَيْنَ اَمْرِكَ وَنَهْيِكَ،

اَرْجُوبِهِ الشَهادَةَ بَيْنَ يَدَيْكَ وَالْفَوْزَ لَدَيْكَ،

مَوْلايَ فَاِنْ اَدْرَكَنِي الْمَوْتُ قَبْلَ ظُهُورِكَ

فَاِنّي اَتَوَسَّلُ بِكَ وَبِابائِكَ الطّاهِرينَ اِلَى اللهِ تَعالى

وَاَسْأَلُهُ اَنْ يُصَلِّيَ عَلى مُحَمَّد وَآلِ مُحَمَّد،

وَاَنْ يَجْعَلَ لي كَرَّةً في ظُهُورِكَ

وَرَجْعَةً في اَيّامِكَ،

لاَِبْلُغَ مِنْ طاعَتِكَ مُرادي

وَاَشْفِيَ مِنْ اَعْدآئِكَ فُؤادي،

مَوْلايَ وَقَفْتُ في زِيارَتِكَ مَوْقِفَ الْخاطِئينَ النّادِمينَ

الْخائِفينَ مِنْ عِقابِ رَبِّ الْعالَمينَ،

وَقَدِ اتَّكَلْتُ عَلى شَفاعَتِكَ،

وَرَجَوْتُ بِمُوالاتِكَ وَشَفاعَتِكَ مَحْوَ ذُنُوبي،

وَسَتْرَ عُيُوبي،

وَمَغْفِرَةَ زَلَلي،

فَكُنْ لِوَلِيِّكَ يا مَوْلايَ عِنْدَ تَحْقيقِ اَمَلِهِ

وَاسْأَلِ اللهَ غُفْرانَ زَلَلِهِ،

فَقَدْ تَعَلَّقَ بِحَبْلِكَ،

وَتَمَسَّكَ بِوِلايَتِكَ،

وَتَبَرَّأَ مِنْ اَعْدائِكَ،

اَللّـهُمَّ صَلِّ عَلى مُحَمَّد وَآلِهِ

وَاَنْجِزْ لِوَلِيِّكَ ما وَعَدْتَهُ،

اَللّـهُمَّ اَظْهِرْ كَلِمَتَهُ،

وَاَعْلِ دَعْوَتَهُ،

وَانْصُرْهُ عَلى عَدُوِّهِ وَعَدُوِّكَ يا رَبَّ الْعالَمينَ،

اَللّـهُمَّ صَلِّ عَلى مُحَمَّد وَآلِ مُحَمَّد

وَاَظْهِرْ كَلِمَتَكَ التّامَّةَ وَمُغَيَّبَكَ في اَرْضِكَ

الْخآئِفَ الْمُتَرَقِّبَ،

اَللّـهُمَّ انْصُرْهُ نَصْراً عَزيزاً

وَافْتَحْ لَهُ فَتْحاً يَسيراً،

اَللّـهُمَّ وَاَعِزَّ بِهِ الدّينَ بَعْدَ الْخُمُولِ،

وَاَطْلِعْ بِهِ الْحَقَّ بَعْدَ الاْفُولِ،

وَاَجْلِ بِهِ الظُّلْمَةَ

وَاكْشِفْ بِهِ الْغُمَّةَ،

اَللّـهُمَّ وَآمِنْ بِهِ الْبِلادَ،

وَاهْدِ بِهِ الْعِبادَ،

اَللّـهُمَّ امْلاَ بِهِ الاَرْضَ عَدْلاً وَقِسْطاً كَما مُلِئَتْ ظُلْماً وَجَوراً

اِنَّكَ سَميعٌ مُجيبٌ،

اَلسَّلامُ عَلَيْكَ يا وَلِيَّ اللهِ،

اْئْذَنْ لِوَلِيِّكَ في الدُّخُولِ اِلى حَرَمِكَ

صَلَواتُ اللهِ عَلَيْكَ وَعَلى آبائِكَ الطّاهِرينَ وَرَحْمَةُ اللهِ وَبَرَكاتُهُ

Peace be upon you; O the vicegerent of Allah and the vicegerent of your well-guided fathers.
peace be upon you; O the Successor of the past Successors (of the Prophets).
Peace be upon you; O the keeper of the secrets of the Lord of the worlds.
peace be upon you; O Allah’s remainder from among the elite, select ones.
peace be upon you; O son of the luminous lights.
peace be upon you; O son of the splendid signs.
peace be upon you; O son of the immaculate progeny.
peace be upon you; O the essence of the Prophetic knowledge.
peace be upon you; O Allah’s gate - the only gate from which one can enter to Him.
peace be upon you; O Allah’s course that perdition will be the result of anyone who takes other than it.
peace be upon you; O the observer of the Tree of Bliss (tuba) and the Farthest Lot-tree.
peace be upon you; O Allah’s light that never extinguishes.
peace be upon you; O Allah’s decisive argument that is never hidden.
peace be upon you; O Allah’s decisive argument against all those in the earth and in the heavens.
peace be upon you - a salutation of one who recognizes you as exactly as Allah has introduced you,
and one who mentions only some of your characteristics that you are worthy of and even more.
I bear witness that you are the argument against the past and the coming generations,
and that your party are the true triumphant,
and your friends are the true winners,
and your enemies are truly losers.
and that you are the keeper of the entire knowledge
and that you are the opener of all closed things
and that you are the establisher of all rights
and that you are the eradicator of all wrongs.
O my master: I accept you as my leader, guide, master, and adviser.
I never seek any alternative and I never betake any master save You.
I bear witness that you are verily the unchanging right that is free of any defect
and that Allah’s promise concerning you is so true that I never doubt no matter how long the occultation will take and the time (of your advent) will be far
and I will never have misgivings like those who ignore you and ignore the right that you represent
and I am waiting and expecting your age
and you are the unmatched intercessor
and the irrefutable master.
Allah has saved you for the support of the religion and for the fortification of the believers
and for retaliating upon the deniers and the apostates.
I bear witness that through the loyalty to you, deeds are approved
and acts are purified
and rewards are doubled
and wrongdoings are erased.
therefore, he who bears loyalty to you
and recognizes your Imamate
will have his deeds approved,
his sayings credited,
his rewards doubled,
and his wrongdoings erased.
while if one rejects the loyalty to you
and ignores the recognition of you
and follows anyone else,
Allah shall throw one down in Hellfire on the nose,
and He shall never approve any of one’s acts
and shall never set up a balance for one on the Day of Resurrection.
I ask Allah and His angels and you, my master, to testify to this for me
the outward of this declaration is as same as its inward
and its secret is as same as its overtness,
and you are the witness on this declaration,
and this is my pledge with you and my covenant to you
since you are verily the system of the religion
and the leader of the pious ones
and the dignity of the monotheists
and this is the command of the Lord of the Worlds to me.
even if times take longer periods
and even if ages take extend
this will increase in me nothing but belief in you
and love for you
and reliance and trust in you
and anticipation and expectation of your advent
and waiting to strive hard in your presence
So, I provide myself, my fortune, my sons, my family members and all that which Almighty Allah will grant me for your sake and for obeying your orders and refraining from that which you order me not to do.
O my master: If I catch your thriving days
and I will see your splendid signs,
then, here I, a servant of you, am yielding to your orders and abstaining from that which you order me not to do.
through all that, I hope for martyrdom before you and success in your view.
O my master: But if death comes upon me before your advent,
then I beseech you and your immaculate fathers to mediate for me before Almighty Allah
Whom I pray to send blessings upon Muhammad and the Household of Muhammad,
and to decide for me a return after your advent
and a second life during your days
so that I will attain obedience to you, which is my desire,
and to heal my heart from your enemies.
O my master: While I am visiting you, I am standing in the position of the repentant wrongdoers,
who fear the chastisement of the Lord of the Worlds
and I am, meanwhile, depending upon your intercession for me
and I, through my loyalty to you and your intercession for me, wish for eradication of my sins
and covering of my defects
and forgiveness of my slips.
So, O my master, (please) help me, your servant, achieve my hope
and (please) ask Allah to forgive my slips
verily, I am clinging to your rope
and holding on my loyalty to you
and declaring my disavowal of your enemies.
O Allah: (please) bless Muhammad and his Household and fulfill Your promise to Your Friend.
O Allah: (please) make prevalent his word
and elevate his mission
and support him against Your and his enemies; O the Lord of the Worlds.
O Allah: (please) send blessings upon Muhammad and the Household of Muhammad
and allow Your Perfect Word and Your concealed one in Your lands
- the afraid, the vigilant - to reappear.
O Allah: (please) support him with powerful support
and give him a nigh victory.
O Allah: (please) fortify the religion through him after it will have been sluggish,
and demonstrate the right through him after it will have declined,
and remove darkness through him
and relieve griefs through him.
O Allah: (please) spread security over the lands through him
and guide the servants (of You) through him.
O Allah: (please) fill the earth with justice and equality through him as it will have been filled with injustice and wrong.
verily, You are All-hearing and Responsive.
Peace be upon you; O Allah’s friend.
(please) permit me, your servant, to enter your holy place.
May Allah’s blessings, mercy, and benedictions be upon you and your immaculate fathers.
