Ziarat in Arabic[edit | edit source]

السلاَمُ عَلَیْکَ یَا ابْنَ رَسُولِ اللَّهِ السَّلاَمُ عَلَیْکَ یَا ابْنَ أَمِیرِ الْمُؤْمِنِینَ‏

السَّلاَمُ عَلَیْکَ یَا ابْنَ الصِّدِّیقَةِ الطَّاهِرَةِ سَیِّدَةِ نِسَاءِ الْعَالَمِینَ‏

السَّلاَمُ عَلَیْکَ یَا مَوْلاَیَ یَا أَبَا عَبْدِ اللَّهِ وَ رَحْمَةُ اللَّهِ وَ بَرَکَاتُهُ‏

أَشْهَدُ أَنَّکَ قَدْ أَقَمْتَ الصَّلاَةَ وَ آتَیْتَ الزَّکَاةَ وَ أَمَرْتَ بِالْمَعْرُوفِ وَ نَهَیْتَ عَنِ الْمُنْکَرِ

وَ تَلَوْتَ الْکِتَابَ حَقَّ تِلاَوَتِهِ وَ جَاهَدْتَ فِی اللَّهِ حَقَّ جِهَادِهِ وَ صَبَرْتَ عَلَى الْأَذَى فِی جَنْبِهِ مُحْتَسِباً حَتَّى أَتَاکَ الْیَقِینُ‏

وَ أَشْهَدُ أَنَّ الَّذِینَ خَالَفُوکَ وَ حَارَبُوکَ وَ أَنَّ الَّذِینَ خَذَلُوکَ وَ الَّذِینَ قَتَلُوکَ مَلْعُونُونَ عَلَى لِسَانِ النَّبِیِّ الْأُمِّیِ‏

وَ قَدْ خَابَ مَنِ افْتَرَى‏ لَعَنَ اللَّهُ الظَّالِمِینَ لَکُمْ مِنَ الْأَوَّلِینَ وَ الْآخِرِینَ وَ ضَاعَفَ عَلَیْهِمُ الْعَذَابَ الْأَلِیمَ‏

أَتَیْتُکَ یَا مَوْلاَیَ یَا ابْنَ رَسُولِ اللَّهِ زَائِراً عَارِفاً بِحَقِّکَ مُوَالِیاً لِأَوْلِیَائِکَ مُعَادِیاً لِأَعْدَائِکَ‏

مُسْتَبْصِراً بِالْهُدَى الَّذِی أَنْتَ عَلَیْهِ عَارِفاً بِضَلاَلَةِ مَنْ خَالَفَکَ فَاشْفَعْ لِی عِنْدَ رَبِّکَ

Ziarat in English[edit | edit source]

‏Peace be upon you, O son of Messenger of Allah, ‏Peace be upon you, O son of the commander of the faithful of Allah,

Peace be on you, O son of Sadiqa and Tahera, the leader of the women of the worlds.

Peace and Allah's Mercy and Blessings be upon you, O my Master, O Aba-Abdullah

I bear witness that verily you established the prayers And gave the zakat (prescribed share) to the needy And commanded to do what is right and lawful And not to do that which is wrong and unlawful

recited the Book (i.e. the Holy Qur'¡n) as exactly as it should be recited,strove for the sake of Allah as exactly as striving must be,and faced all troubles steadfastly for His sake, seeking his reward, until death came upon you.

I also bear witness that those who dissented you, those who fought against you, those who let you down, and those who slew you (all those) were accursed directly by the Meccan Prophet.

And he who forges lies indeed fails to attain his desire. May Allah curse those who wronged you from amongst the past and the present generations. May Allah also double for them the painful torment.

O my master and son of Allah’s Messenger, I have come to you visiting you, acknowledging the standing that you enjoy, declaring my loyalty to those who are loyal to you, renouncing your enemies,

seeking to follow the true guidance that you are following, and recognizing the deviation of those who oppose you; so, (please) intercede for me before your Lord.
