Reading Time: < 1 minute

اَبِي عَبْدِ اللهِ ع قَالَ …لَيْسَ مِنْ مَلَكٍ مُقَرَّبٍ وَ لَا نَبِيٍّ مُرْسَلٍ اِلَّا وَ هُوَ يَسْاَلُ اللهَ اَنْ يَزُورَهُ‏ فَفَوْجٌ‏ يَهْبِطُ وَ فَوْجٌ يَصْعَدُ.

Imam Sadeq (peace be upon him) says,

“…thus, there is neither a proximate angel nor a sent Prophet but that he requests Allah to visit him (al-Husain). So, a group descends (for ziyaarat) and another ascends (back to the skies).”
