The Merits Of Arbaeen Walk from Najaf To Karbala

The Qur'an says "wa min yuaththim shaaaira Allah, fainnaha min taqwa al-quloob"(22:32), if you uphold the signs of Allah, it is a sign of God consciousness .

Muwawiya ibn Wahab, ridhwan Allahi Ta'ala alayh, one of the companions of Imam Al-Sadiq, alayhi assalam, narrates that I saw Imam Al-Sadiq one day in sajda, and I saw him weeping and supplicating to Allah. He used to say "Allahumma ghfirli, wali Ikhwaani, wali zuwwaar qabra jaddi Aba Abdillah Al-Husayn." Imam Al-Sadiq is praying for you and I, that we make that journey to Karbala.

That he said the Imam was weeping and then he began to say, "Allahumma arham tilka al-quloob allati qallabat nafsaha 'ala qabri al-Husayn." Oh Allah bless those cheeks that place itself on the grave of Aba Abdillah. Bless those faces that are burnt under the sun because they go for the Ziyarat of Husayn.

Oh Allah bless those eyes, that shed the tears due to the remembrance of Aba Abdillah Al-Husayn. Then the Imam would continue, he says, bless the voices that scream in remembrance of Aba Abdillah. Bless the hearts that are weeping due to the massa'ib of Aba Abdillah. Then he said Ya Allah I trust those zuwwaar with you until I meet them at the Pond of Kawthar.
