A Salute to the Master of Martyrs: A Commentary on Ziyarat ‘Ashura
Commentary & translation by Islamic Texts Institute
Under the direction of Shaykh Rizwan Arastu
Ziyarat ‘Ashura is arguably the most famous and oft-recited of the ziyarat or “salutations” to God’s infallible guides. It is the epitome of the genre of ziyarat and has always been a mainstay in the daily liturgy of Shi’i scholars and worshippers as Imam Muhammad al-Baqir expressly intended when he taught it to his disciples. A Salute to the Master of Martyrs is a commentary that attempts to uncover the theological, historical and spiritual underpinnings of this outstanding ziyarah.
