36: Monetary Assistance To The Pious Shias And Friends Of Imam (aj)

This is mentioned separately in traditions and thus we have also given it as a separate duty. For example, in Man La Yahzarul Faqih, Imam Sadiq (as) is reported to have said, “One who could not do good to us, he should do good towards our righteous Shias and friends, he shall get the reward of helping us. And those who could not visit us should visit our righteous friends, they shall get the reward of our Ziarat (visitation).”

In Kamiluz Ziarat through the author’s own chain of narrators it is narrated from His Eminence, Abul Hasan Musa bin Ja’far (as) that he said: One who is unable to visit us should pay a visit to a righteous follower of ours, as a reward for our Ziarat will be written for him; and one who is unable to do a favor on us should do favor to our righteous follower, and the reward of doing a favor to us will be noted in his account.1

In Tahdhib through the author’s own chain of narrators it is narrated from His Eminence that he said: One who is unable to visit us should pay a visit to his righteous brothers, as reward for our Ziarat will be written for him; and one who is unable to do a favor on us should do favor to his righteous brothers, and the reward of doing a favor to us will be noted in his account.2
