Imam Reza’s Pilgrimage; Procedures and Prayers followed by Ziyarat-I-Jame’a Kabeere & Duaa Aali’l-Mazaameen
Compiled by: Ali Peiravi
In this book we have presented several traditions regarding the nobility of the pilgrimage to the Holy Shrine of Imam Reza (a.s.) and two authentic pilgrimage procedures and prayers from Sheikh Sadooq’s book Uyun Akhbar al-Reza, the first of which was quoted on the authority of Muhammad ibn al-Hassan – may God be pleased with him. The second one was quoted on the authority of Imam Reza (a.s.). We have also included a third pilgrimage prayer called Ziyarat-i-Jame’a Kabeere that is an authentic pilgrimage prayer recorded by Sheikh Sadooq in his books Man La Yahzorohul Faqih and Uyoon Akhbar al-Reza. Sheikh Toosi has also quoted it in his book Tahzibul Ahkam. Concerning this pilgrimage prayer, Allamah Majlisi has said: “Ziyarat-i-Jame’a is authentic from the aspect of the chain of narrations. It is eloquent and has an expressive text that makes it the best pilgrimage prayer.” This pilgrimage prayer was taught by Imam Ali Naqi (a.s.) to his companion Musa ibn Imran an-Nakha’ee upon Musa’s personal request. We hope that the readers benefit from this book and pray for our salvation.
