عَنْ عَبْدِ الرَّحْمَنِ بْنِ الْحَجَّاجِ أَوْ غَيْرِهِ وَ اسْمُهُ الْحُسَيْنُ قَالَ: قَالَ أَبُو عَبْدِ اللَّهِ عَلَیهِ السَّلامُ: مَنْ زَارَ قَبْرَ الْحُسَيْنِ بْنِ عَلِيٍّ عَلَیهِ السَّلامُ لَيْلَةً مِنْ ثَلَاثِ لَيَالِ غَفَرَ اللَّهُ لَهُ مَا تَقَدَّمَ مِنْ ذَنْبِهِ وَ مَا تَأَخَّرَ، قَالَ: قُلْتُ: أَيَّ اللَّيَالِي جُعِلْتُ فِدَاكَ‏؟ قَالَ: لَيْلَةَ الْفِطْرِ أَوْ لَيْلَةَ الْأَضْحَى أَوْ لَيْلَةَ النِّصْفِ مِنْ شَعْبَانَ.

Imam Ja’far Sadiq (peace be upon him) said:

“Whoever visits the grave of (Imam) Husain (peace be upon him) on any of the three nights, Allah shall forgive all his past and future sins.”

The narrator says that I asked, “May I be your ransom! Which nights?”

Imam (peace be on him) replied: “The night of (Eid) al-Fitr or the night of (Eid) al-Ad’ha or the eve of 15th Shabaan.”

Note: Those who are unable to visit Imam Husain (a.s.) physically, can recite Ziyarat from wherever they are and acquire the same reward, Insha Allah.
