Farewell /wida ziarat  from sahifa Radhvia

Chapter 29

Eight Ziyaaraat from Ziyaarat-e-Widaa (Farewell Pilgrimage)

In this chapter we shall mention eight ziyaarat of Widaa, recitation of which is recommended at the time of departing from the holy shrine.[1]

Mohaddis Qummi (r.a.) says: You must know that the condition of the heart of the pilgrim becomes melancholic at the time of departing from the holy shrine whereas he/she has a pleasant mood while entering the holy shrine. They have different classes according to their love and affection with these holy personalities (a.s.). If his claim of love is true the minimum class is said to be that the existence of Holy Imam (a.s.) should be precious to him over his family, wealth and whatever is in his possession to which he is attached with.

So at the time of his departure, if he is in a state, that he is departing from his most precious and favorite thing, the tear will start flowing from his eyes and his feet would be trembling and his heart would be melancholic. So he should thank the Almighty Allah for giving such a great blessing. And if he is not in such a condition he is not genuine in his claim.[2]

(1) Farewell Ziyaarat to be Recited after Ziyaarat-e-Ameenullah

The author says: I have seen in the book ‘Al-Iqbaal’ and the book ‘Sahifa al-Saadeqiyyah’ written by late Sayed ibn Taaoos (r.a.) and in two manuscripts in which a farewell ziyaarat to be recited after ziyaarat-e-Ameenullah, narrated by Imam Ja’far al-Sadiq (a.s.) has been mentioned.

Jaabir says: When I informed Imam Ja’far al-Sadiq (a.s.) about the ziyaarat of Ameenullah as narrated by Imam Muhammad Baqir (a.s.), he (a.s.) said:

“Whenever you decide to depart from the shrine of the Holy Imams (a.s.) then add in it this supplication after Ziyaarat-e-Ameenullah:

اَلسَّلَامُ عَلَيْكَ اَيُّهَا الْاِمَامُ وَ رَحْمَةُ اللهِ وَ بَرَكَاتُهٗ اَسْتَوْدِعُكَ اللهَ وَ عَلَيْكَ السَّلَامُ وَ رَحْمَةُ اللهِ وَ بَرَكَاتُہٗ. اٰمَنَّا بِالرَّسُوْلِ وَ بِمَا جِئْتُمْ بِهٖ وَ دَعَوْتُمْ اِلَيْهِ. اَللّٰهُمَّ لَا تَجْعَلْهُ اٰخِرَ الْعَهْدِ مِنْ زِيَارَتِيْ وَلِيَّكَ. اَللّٰهُمَّ لَا تَحْرِمْنِيْ ثَوَابَ مَزَارِهِ الَّذِيْ اَوْجَبْتَ لَهٗ وَ يَسِّرْ لَنَا الْعَوْدَ اِلَیْہِ اِنْ شَآءَ اللهُ تَعَالٰى‏.

assalaamo a’layka ayyohal emaamo wa rahmatul laahe wa barakaatohu as-tawde-o’kal laaha wa a’laykas salaamo wa rahmatul laahe wa barakaatoh. aamannaa bir-rasoole wa bemaa jeatum behi da-a’wtum elayhe. allaahumma laa taj-a’lho aakheral a’hde min zeyaaratee waliyyaka. allaahumma laa tahrimnee sawaaba mazaarehil lazee awjabta lahu wa yassir lanal a’wda elayhe in shaaa allaaho ta-a’alaa.

Peace be on you, O the Imam and mercy of Allah and His blessings, I entrust you with Allah and upon you is peace and mercy of Allah and His blessings. We believe in the Messenger,  and in whatever you have come with and called to. O Allah! Do not make this my last visitation of Your master. O Allah! Do not deprive me of the reward of his shrine which You have decided for him and make our returning to visit it easy for us, if Allah – the High – wish.[3]

(2) Second Farewell Ziyaarat

When you decide to depart from the holy shrine, recite the following:

اَلسَّلَامُ عَلَيْكُمْ يَا اَهْلَ بَيْتِ النُّبُوَّةِ سَلَامَ مُوَدِّعٍ لَا سَئِمٍ وَ لَا قَالٍ وَ رَحْمَةُ اللهِ وَ بَرَكَاتُهٗ اِنَّہٗ حَمِيْدٌ مَجِيْدٌ سَلَامَ وَلِيٍّ غَيْرِ رَاغِبٍ عَنْكُمْ وَ لَا مُسْتَبْدِلٍ بِكُمْ وَ لَا مُؤْثِرٍ عَلَيْكُمْ وَ لَا مُنْحَرِفٍ عَنْكُمْ وَ لَا زَاهِدٍ فِيْ قُرْبِكُمْ وَ اِتْيَانِ مَشَاهِدِكُمْ. وَ السَّلَامُ عَلَيْكُمْ وَ حَشَرَنِيَ اللهُ فِيْ زُمْرَتِكُمْ وَ اَوْرَدَنِيْ حَوْضَكُمْ وَ جَعَلَنِيْ مِنْ حِزْبِكُمْ وَ اَرْضَاكُمْ عَنِّيْ وَ مَكَّنَنِيْ فِیْ دَوْلَتِكُمْ وَ اَحْيَانِيْ فِيْ رَجْعَتِكُمْ وَ مَلَّكَنِيْ فِيْ اَيَّامِكُمْ وَ شَكَرَ سَعْيِيْ بِكُمْ وَ غَفَرَ ذَنْبِيْ بِشَفَاعَتِكُمْ وَ اَقَالَ عَثْرَتِيْ بِمَحَبَّتِكُمْ وَ اَعْلٰى كَعْبِيْ بِمُوَالَاتِكُمْ وَ شَرَّفَنِيْ بِطَاعَتِكُمْ وَ اَعَزَّنِيْ بِهُدَاكُمْ وَ جَعَلَنِيْ مِمَّنِ انْقَلَبَ مُفْلِحًا مُنْجِحًا غَانِمًا سَالِمًا مُعَافًا غَنِيًّا فَآئِزًا بِرِضْوَانِ اللهِ وَ فَضْلِهٖ وَ كِفَايَتِهٖ بِاَفْضَلِ مَا يَنْقَلِبُ بِهٖ اَحَدٌ مِنْ زُوَّارِكُمْ وَ مَوَالِيْكُمْ وَ مُحِبِّيْكُمْ وَ شِيْعَتِكُمْ وَ رَزَقَنِيَ اللهُ الْعَوْدَ ثُمَّ الْعَوْدَ اَبَدًا مَا اَبْقَانِيْ بِنِيَّةٍ وَ اِيْمَانٍ وَ تَقْوٰى وَ اِخْبَاتٍ وَ رِزْقٍ وَاسِعٍ حَلَالٍ طَيِّبٍ. اَللَّهُمَّ لَا تَجْعَلْهُ اٰخِرَ الْعَهْدِ مِنْ زِيَارَتِهِمْ وَ ذِكْرِهِمْ وَ الصَّلَاةِ عَلَيْهِمْ وَ اَوْجِبِ الْمَغْفِرَةَ وَ الْخَيْرَ وَ الْبَرَكَةَ وَ النُّوْرَ وَ الْاِيْمَانَ وَ حُسْنَ الْاِجَابَةِ بِمَا اَوْجَبْتَ لِاَوْلِيَآئِكَ الْعَارِفِيْنَ بِحَقِّهِمُ الْمُوجِبِيْنَ طَاعَتَهُمْ وَ الرَّاغِبِيْنَ فِيْ زِيَارَتِهِمُ الْمُتَقَرِّبِيْنَ اِلَيْكَ وَ اِلَيْهِمْ. بِاَبِيْ اَنْتُمْ وَ اُمِّيْ وَ نَفْسِيْ وَ اَهْلِيْ اِجْعَلُوْنِيْ فِيْ هَمِّكُمْ وَ صَيِّرُوْنِيْ فِيْ حِزْبِكُمْ وَ اَدْخِلُوْنِيْ فِيْ شَفَاعَتِكُمْ وَ اذْكُرُوْنِيْ عِنْدَ رَبِّكُمْ. اَللّٰهُمَّ صَلِّ عَلٰى مُحَمَّدٍ وَ اٰلِ مُحَمَّدٍ وَ اَبْلِغْ اَرْوَاحَهُمْ وَ اَجْسَادَهُمْ مِنِّي السَّلَامَ وَ السَّلَامُ عَلَيْہِ وَ عَلَیْہِمْ وَ رَحْمَةُ اللهِ وَ بَرَكَاتُهٗ وَ صَلَّى اللهُ عَلٰى سَيِّدِنَا مُحَمَّدٍ وَ اٰلِهٖ وَ سَلَّمَ تَسْلِيْمًا كَثِيْرًا وَ حَسْبُنَا اللهُ وَ نِعْمَ الْوَكِيْلُ.

Peace be on you all, O household of prophethood and essence of the (divine) Message. I offer you the salutation of one who has to bid farewell to you although he is neither bored with you nor tired of you. Allah's mercy and blessings be upon you, O People of the Household. He is verily worth of praise, full of glory. [I greet you] with the greeting of a loyalist to You who never forsakes you, never deviates from you, never substitutes you, never chooses others than you, and never becomes weary of being in your vicinity and coming to your shrines. Peace be on you all. May Allah include me with your group, allow me to come to your pond, make you to be pleased with me, give me authority in your (expected) government, restore me to life at your return, grant me power on the days of your authority, thank my efforts for visiting you, forgive my sins through your intercession, absolve my slips on account of my love for you, raise my rank on account of my loyalty to you, endue me with honor due to my obedience to you, grant me dignity due to my following your right guidance, make me of those who return homes with success, prosperity, safety, profits, wellbeing, riches, and winning of Allah’s pleasure, favors, and security with the most favorable thing that any of your visitors, loyalists, lovers, and adherents may return with. May Allah grant me more and more chances to re-visit you,  as long as He keeps me alive, bearing intention, faith, piety, submission, and sustenance that is expansive, legally gotten, and pleasant. O Allah! Do not decide this time to be my last visit to their tombs, mentioning them, and invoking blessings upon them. Make inevitable forgiveness, goodness, blessing, light, faith, and excellent response for me, by what You have made inevitable for Your intimate servants who recognize their actual status, who made obedience to them to be obligatory upon themselves,  who have desire to visit them, and who seek nearness to You and to them. May my father, mother, soul and family members, be ransoms for you. Include my issue with the matters of your concern, make me join your party, include me with your intercession, and remember me before your Lord. O Allah! Send blessings upon Muhammad and the progeny of Muhammad and convey to their souls and bodies many greetings and salutations. And Peace be on you and them; and may Allah’s grace and His Blessings be upon you. And may Allah’s blessings, and salutations be upon our master Muhammad and his progeny. And Allah is sufficient for us, and He is the best disposer of affairs.[4]

(3) Third Farewell Ziyaarat

Allama Majlisi (r.a.) writes in Behaar al-Anwaar:

Whenever you decide to depart from the shrine of any of the holy Imams (a.s.) then say:

Peace be on you, O chiefs of the believers, Imams of the pious, standards of the guidance, heir of the prophets, progeny of the messengers, the example of the righteous ones, proofs of Allah upon the worlds, certainly this is the moment of my departing from you and (time for) the deliverance and acceleration has approached, not with tiredness from you nor with weariness for this place near you, but for causes of hindrance and misfortunes repelled from staying, it became clear for excuse by which staying became impossible and difficult for me. Then I beseech Allah through you and I ask Him through you approval, (I am doing) farewell with the determination to return to you, regretting because of difficulty of staying near you, how do I not regret upon separation of your holy and glorified shrines and the land of your blessed and honored graves? In it is acceptance of the supplications, repel of the evil and calamity,  wiping out of the distress, cure for the disease, and through you is safety from the chastisement, easing of the difficulties, success in fulfilling desires, expecting the reward, and through you bounties are completed, mercy is pervasive, malice is eliminated, sorrow is removed, repentance is accepted, sins are forgiven, actions are purified, wishes are fulfilled, hopes are materialized, prosperity is gained, harm is repelled, opinions are directed, wishes are guided, excellency is acquired, happiness is completed, faith is accepted, safety is gained, entry in the paradise, and from you the men and the jinn asks. O my grief, for departure from your excellency! O my desire,  for kissing your threshold, and entering through your doors by your permission, soiling my check upon fragrance of your grave, shelter at your courtyard, places of your bodies and figures,   surrounded by honorable angels, fenced with mercy and peace from Allah, I wish that I was its custodian and reside in its neighborhood, I am not bothered from departing it nor I am leaving it because as per my understanding the greetings and salutations (of the stones of the sanctuary) for it is numerous (than Hajar al-Aswad). Then I ask Allah, Who has guided me for your recognition, honored me with your love, made me devout with their mastership, entrusted me for their visitation, returning to visit in your presence till I am alive, the glad-tiding of accompanying them when You make me die, the gathering in their group and entering in their intercession. Then great is my distress, O my chiefs! How will be my condition in my journey, whether I have been forgiven of my sins, my defects have been hidden, my needs have been fulfilled and my desires have been succeeded? Then these are my hopes, I am impressed by your generosity, then what will make me happy through you while my victory is greatest with your love, or a traveller with heavy burden on my back, my supplication is concealed, hope is disappointed. Then O my distree! If this is my condition and O disappointment of my hopes! Refuse of your benevolence and your kindness and your beautiful promise and guarantee for your visitor, your excellent character, purity of your traits and loving such behavior is far from you, your generosity near your Lord, your attention for your visitors and your lovers, that you reject his request or disappointment for his hopes, and Allah do not like except testifying your promise, verifying the hope with your intention, assisting and honouring for your delegates, gifting with goodness for your visitors, and like that I thought for you, and hope of his grave for your followers. I beseech Allah to be witness and I confide in him, and I beseech you to be witness upon what I had promised upon it from accepting your mastership, acknowledging your superiority, standing for help, nearness to Allah through your love, obedience to you for being with you, and this is my hand upon what Allah has ordered it from the loyalty with your covenant and the obligatory pledge to you, I do not desire for it any alternative nor do I intend from it any transfer. I bear witness that it is a determined command from Allah and necessity obligation upon the nation, there is no proof for the one who ignored it nor any excuse for the one who neglect it, I profess to Allah by that secretly and openly, in a state of mentioning and forgetfulness, in my life and death, in the hereafter and the world, away from my place and near the sanctuary. O Allah! Then send blessing on Muhammad and the progeny of Muhammad, make me stand firm on it till I meet You, grant me success for Your obedience and Your pleasure, grant me advantages of what You have taught me, do not make my heart to deviate after You have guided me, then for You is the praise on what You have bestowed me, I ask You O One Whose bounties can not be counted, none is parallel for His favours, that You send blessing upon Muhammad and the progeny of Muhammad and do not make it the last of my visitation of Your vicegerents and the acquaintance with the shrines of Your proofs and Your chosen ones, inspire me with Your great thanks, and insistence for asking and supplicating to You, accept from me what I have asked You, grant me with Your grave all what I have asked You, forgive me with abundant forgiveness, have mercy on me with Your generosity – with vast mercy on which I am safe from Your wrath and the fire, accommodate me with Your favour in the house of solidity with the immaculate Imams and the followers of progeny of Muhammad – the pious, and make me from those whose accounting will be easy and whose resting place to You will be proficient, whose offences You will erase, whose good deeds will be doubled and who will be gathered in the group of Muhammad and progeny of Muhammad – the immaculate, Your blessings be upon them all, and forgive my parents and the believers with Your mercy, O most Merciful![6]

(5) Fifth Farewell Ziyaarat

Allama Majlisi (r.a.) writes in Behaar al-Anwaar:

Recite farewell ziyaarat which has been narrated by Imam Ja’far al-Sadiq (a.s.) which he (a.s.) had recited while departing from the Holy Prophet (s.a.w.a.). He (a.s.) said:

لَا جَعَلَهٗ اللهُ اٰخِرَ تَسْلِيْمِيْ عَلَيْكَ.

laa ja-a’lahul laaho aakhera tasleemee a’layka.

Allah may not decide this compliment of me to be the last.

You may add the following words:

اَلسَّلَامُ عَلَيْكَ يَا وَلِيَّ اللهِ وَ رَحْمَةُ اللهِ وَ بَرَكَاتُهٗ. اَللّٰهُمَّ لَا تَجْعَلْهُ اٰخِرَ الْعَهْدِ مِنْ زِيَارَتِيْ ابْنَ نَبِيِّكَ وَ حُجَّتَكَ عَلٰى خَلْقِكَ وَ اجْمَعْنِيْ وَ اِيَّاهُ فِيْ جَنَّتِكَ وَ احْشُرْنِيْ مَعَهٗ وَ فِيْ حِزْبِهٖ مَعَ الشُّهَدَآءِ وَ الصَّالِحِيْنَ وَ حَسُنَ اُوْلٰئِكَ رَفِيْقًا وَ اسْتَوْدِعُكَ اللهَ وَ اسْتَرْعِيْكَ وَ اَقْرَاُ عَلَيْكَ السَّلَامَ اٰمَنَّا بِاللهِ وَ بِالرَّسُوْلِ وَ بِمَا جِئْتَ بِهٖ وَ دَلَلْتَ عَلَيْهِ فَاكْتُبْنَا مَعَ الشَّاهِدِيْنَ.

assalaamo a’layka yaa waliyyal laahe wa rahmatul laahe wa barakaatoh. allaahumma laa taj-a’lho aakheral a’hde min zeyaaratib na nabiyyeka wa hujjataka a’laa khalqeka waj ma’nee wa iyyaaho fee jannateka wah shurnee ma-a’hu wa fee hizbehi ma-a’sh shohadaaa-e was saaleheena wa hasona oolaaa-eka rafeeqan was tawde-o’kal laaha was tar-e’eka wa aqra-o a’laykas salaama aamanna bil laahe wa bir rasoole wa bemaa jeata behi wa dalalta a’layhe faktubnaa ma-a’sh shaahedeen.

Peace and Allah’s mercy and blessings be upon you, O Allah’s authority. O Allah! Do not decide this visit to be the last of my visit to the son of Your Prophet and Your argument against Your creatures. Include me with him in Your Paradise and involve me with him and with his group with the martyrs and the righteous ones; very excellent is the companionship of such ones. I entrust you with Allah, ask Him to keep you under His custody, and invoke His blessings upon you. We believe in Allah, in the Messenger,  and in whatever you have come with and instructed. So, (please) write us down with those who bear witness.[7]

The narration of Allamah Majlisi (r.a.) does not indicate that this farewell ziyaarat is particularly for Imam Reza (a.s.).

(6) Sixth Farewell Ziyaarat

It has been narrated in the book ‘al-Mazaar al-Kabeer’ that whenever you decide to depart say:

سَلَامٌ عَلَيْكَ يَا مَوْلَايَ وَ رَحْمَةُ اللهِ وَ بَرَكَاتُهٗ اَنْتَ لَنَا جُنَّةٌ مِنَ الْعَذَابِ وَ هٰذَا اَوَانُ انْصِرَافِيْ عَنْكَ غَيْرَ رَاغِبٍ عَنْكَ وَ لَا مُسْتَبْدِلٍ بِكَ وَ لَا مُؤْثِرٍ عَلَيْكَ وَ لَا زَاهِدٍ فِيْ قُرْبِكَ وَ قَدْ جُدْتُ بِنَفْسِيْ لِلْحَدَثَانِ وَ تَرَكْتُ الْاَهْلَ وَ الْاَوْلَادَ وَ الْاَوْطَانَ فَكُنْ لِيْ شَافِعًا يَوْمَ حَاجَتِيْ وَ فَقْرِيْ يَوْمَ لَا يُغْنِيْ عَنِّيْ وَالِدِيْ وَ لَا وُلْدِيْ. اَسْاَلُ اللهَ الَّذِيْ قَدَّرَ رَحِيْلِيْ اِلَيْكَ اَنْ يُنَفِّسَ بِكُمْ كُرْبَتِيْ وَ اَسْاَلُ اللهَ الَّذِيْ قَدَّرَ عَلَيَّ فِرَاقَ مَكَانِكَ اَنْ لَا يَجْعَلَهٗ اٰخِرَ الْعَهْدِ مِنْ رُجُوْعِيْ اِلَيْكَ وَ اَسْاَلُ اللهَ الَّذِيْ اَبْكٰى عَلَيْكَ عَيْنَيَّ اَنْ يَجْعَلَهٗ لِيْ سَنَدًا وَ ذُخْرًا وَ اَسْاَلُ‏اللهَ الَّذِيْ اَرَانِيْ مَكَانَكَ وَ هَدَانِيْ لِلتَّسْلِيْمِ عَلَيْكَ وَ زِيَارَتِيْ اِيَّاكَ اَنْ يُوْرِدَنِيْ حَوْضَكُمْ وَ يَرْزُقَنِيْ مُرَافَقَتَكُمْ فِيْ الْجِنَانِ. اَلسَّلَامُ عَلَيْكَ يَا صَفْوَةَ اللهِ اَلسَّلَامُ عَلَيْكَ يَا رَسُوْلَ اللهِ اَلسَّلَامُ عَلَيْكَ يَا اَمِيْرَ الْمُؤْمِنِيْنَ وَ وَصِيَّ رَسُوْلِ رَبِّ الْعَالَمِيْنَ وَ قَآئِدَ الْغُرِّ الْمُحَجَّلِيْنَ اَلسَّلَامُ عَلَى الْحَسَنِ وَ الْحُسَيْنِ سَيِّدَيْ شَبَابِ اَهْلِ الْجَنَّةِ اَلسَّلَامُ عَلَى الْاَئِمَّةِ...

Peace be on you, O my master! Mercy of Allah and His blessing. You are a protection for us from the chastisement, this is the moment of departing from you, (who) never forsakes from you, nor substitutes you, nor chooses others than you, nor becomes weary of being in your vicinity, sacrificed with myself for the mishaps, I have left my family, children and homelands, then be my intercessor on the day of my needs and my poverty, day in which my parents and my children will not benefit me. I ask Allah, Who destined my departure to you that He dismisses through You my agonies, and I ask Allah, Who destined separation from Your place that not to decide this time of my return to you as the last, and I ask Allah, Who made me cry upon you with my two eyes that He make for me bond and provision, and I ask Allah, Who saw me at your place and guided me for greeting you and my visiting you that He present me at your pond and grant me your companionship in the paradise. Peace be on you, O choice of Allah! Peace be on you, O Messenger of Allah! Peace be on you, O Commander of the Faithful, successor of the Messenger of the Lord of the worlds, and leader of the white-forehead, marked believers! Peace be on al-Hasan and al-Husain the two chiefs of the youth of Paradise! Peace be on the Imams…

Take names of other Imams (a.s.) and say:

وَ رَحْمَةُ اللهِ وَ بَرَكَاتُهٗ. اَلسَّلَامُ عَلٰى مَلَآئِكَةِ اللهِ الْمُقِيْمِيْنَ الْمُسَبِّحِيْنَ اَلَّذِيْنَ هُمْ بِاَمْرِ رَبِّهِمْ يَعْمَلُوْنَ اَلسَّلَامُ عَلَيْنَا وَ عَلٰى عِبَادِ اللهِ الصَّالِحِيْنَ. اَللّٰهُمَّ لَا تَجْعَلْهُ اٰخِرَ الْعَهْدِ مِنْ زِيَارَتِيْ اِيَّاهُ فَاِنْ جَعَلْتَهٗ فَاحْشُرْنِيْ مَعَهٗ وَ مَعَ اٰبَآئِهِ الْمَاضِيْنَ وَ اِنْ اَبْقَيْتَنِيْ يَا رَبِّ فَارْزُقْنِيْ زِيَارَتَهٗ اَبَدًا مَا اَبْقَيْتَنِيْ اِنَّكَ عَلٰى‏ كُلِّ شَيْ‏ءٍ قَدِيْرٌ.

wa rahmatul laahe wa barakaatoh. assalaamo a’laa malaaa-ekatil laahil moqeemenal mosabbeheena allazeena hum be-amre rabbehim ya’maloona assalaamo a’laynaa wa a’laa e’baadil laahis saaleheen. allaahumma laa taj-a’lho aakheral a’hde min zeyaaratee iyyaaho fa-in ja-a’ltahu fah-shurnee ma-a’hu wa ma-a’ aabaaa-ehil maazeena wa in abqaytanee yaa rabbe farzuqnee zeyaaratahu abadan maa abqaytanee innaka a’laa kulle shay-in qadeer.

And mercy of Allah and His blessing. Peace be on angels of Allah residing in this shrine, the glorifying, those who act by the command of their Lord. Peace be on us and on the righteous servants of Allah. O Allah! Do not decide this time of my visiting his tomb to be the last; and if You decide so, then include me with him and with his past forefathers, if You keep me alive. O my Lord! Grant me opportunities to visit him so long as You keep me alive, verily, You have power over all things.

Then say:

اَسْتَوْدِعُكَ اللهَ وَ اَسْتَرْعِيْكَ وَ اَقْرَاُ عَلَيْكَ السَّلَامَ اٰمَنَّا بِاللهِ وَ بِمَا دَعَوْتَ اِلَيْهِ. اَللّٰهُمَّ اكْتُبْنَا مَعَ الشَّاهِدِيْنَ. اَللّٰهُمَّ ارْزُقْنِي مَوَدَّتَهُمْ اَبَدًا مَا اَبْقَيْتَنِيْ اَلسَّلَامُ عَلٰى مَلَآئِكَةِ اللهِ وَ زُوَّارِ ابْنِ رَسُوْلِ اللهِ اَلسَّلَامُ عَلَيْكَ مِنِّيْ اَبَدًا مَا بَقِيْتُ دَآئِمًا وَ اِذَا فَنَيْتُ اَلسَّلَامُ عَلَيْنَا وَ عَلٰى عِبَادِ اللهِ الصَّالِحِيْنَ.

astaw-de-o’kal laaha wa as-tar-e’eka wa aqra-o a’laykas salaama aamannaa billaahe wa bemaa da-a’wta elayhe. allaahummak tubnaa ma-a’sh shaahedeena. allaahummar zuqnee mawaddatahum abadan maa abqaytanee assalaamo a’laa malaaa-ekatil laahe wa zuwwaarib ne rasoolil laahe assalaamo a’layka minnee abadan maa baqeeto daaa-eman wa ezaa fanayto assalaamo a’laynaa wa a’laa e’baadil laahis saaleheen.

I entrust you with Allah, ask Him to keep you under His custody, and invoke His blessings upon you, we believed in Allah and what you have called towards. O Allah! Write us down among those who bear witness. O Allah! Grant me love of them as long as I am alive. Peace be on the angels of Allah and the visitors of the son of Messenger of Allah. Peace be on you from me forever as long as I am alive always, till I pass away. Peace be on us and on the righteous servants of Allah.

Don’t turn the face till the holy shrine is seen while you are going out of it.[8]

This welfare ziyaarat has been mentioned in the chapter of ziyaarat of Imam Reza (a.s.) by some senior scholars but in fact this is not specifically for him.

(7) Seventh Farewell Ziyaarat

Late Kafami says: While departing from (the shrine of) infallible Imams (a.s.) say:

اَلسَّلَامُ عَلَيْكُمْ اَئِمَّةَ الْهُدٰى وَ رَحْمَةُ اللهِ وَ بَرَكَاتُهٗ. اَسْتَوْدِعُكُمُ اللهَ وَ اَقْرَاُ عَلَيْكُمُ السَّلَامَ اٰمَنَّا بِاللهِ وَ بِالرَّسُوْلِ وَ بِمَا جِئْتُمْ بِهٖ وَ دَلَلْتُمْ عَلَيْهِ. اَللّٰهُمَّ فَاكْتُبْنَا مَعَ الشَّاهِدِيْنَ وَ لَا تَجْعَلْهُ اٰخِرَ الْعَہْدِ مِنْ زِیَارَتِہِمْ وَ السَّلَامُ عَلَیْكُمْ وَ رَحْمَۃُ اللہِ وَ بَرَكَاتُہٗ.

assalaamo a’laykum a-immatal hodaa wa rahmatul laahe wa barakaatoh. as-taw-de-o’komul laaha wa aqra-o a’laykomus salaama aamannaa billaahe wa bir-rasoole wa bemaa jeatum behi wa dalaltum a’layhe. allaahumma faktumnaa ma-a’sh shaahedeena wa laa taj-a’lho aakheral a’hde min zeyaaratehim was salaamo a’laykum wa rahmatul laahe wa barakaatoh.

Peace and Allah’s mercy and blessings be upon you, O leaders to the true guidance! I entrust you with Allah and send salutations to you. We believe in Allah and in the Messenger and in that which you have conveyed and that to which you have guided. O Allah! Then write us down among those who bear witness. And do not decide this time to be my last visit to their tombs, and blessing of Allah be upon them. May the mercy and blessings of Allah be on you.[9]

(8) Eight Farewell Ziyaarat

While departing (from the holy shrine) say:

قَدْ قَضَيْتُ يَا مَوْلَايَ بَعْضَ الْاِرْبِ مِنْ زِيَارَتِكَ وَ لَوْ فَعَلْتُ يَا مَوْلَايَ مَا يَجِبُ عَلَيَّ لَجَعَلْتُ عَرْصَتَكَ دَارَ اِقَامَةٍ وَ لٰكِنَّنِيْ مِنْ اَبْنَآءِ الدُّنْيَا اَكْدَحُ فِيْهَا كَمَا جَرَتْ عَادَةُ مَنْ مَضٰى فَاَسْاَلُ اللهَ الْبَآرَّ الرَّحِيْمَ اَنْ يُصَلِّيَ عَلٰى مُحَمَّدٍ وَ اٰلِ مُحَمَّدٍ وَ اَنْ لَا يَجْعَلَهٗ اٰخِرَ الْعَهْدِ مِنْ زِيَارَتِكُمْ وَ جَمِيْعِ الْمُؤْمِنِيْنَ اِنَّهٗ اَرْحَمُ الرَّاحِمِيْنَ وَ هُوَ عَلى‏ كُلِّ شَيْ‏ءٍ قَدِيْرٌ.

qad qazayto yaa mawlaaya ba’zal irbe min zeyaarateke wa law fa-a’lto yaa mawlaaya maa yajebo a’layya la-ja-a’lto a’rsataka daara iqaamatin wa laakinnanee min abnaaa-id dunyaa akdaho feehaa kamaa jarat a’adato man mazaa fa-as-alolul laahal baaarrar raheema an yosalleaya a’laa mohammadin wa aale mohammadin wa an laa yaj-a’lahu aakheral a’hde min zeyaaratekum wa jamee-i’l moameneena innahu arhamur raahemeena wa howa a’laa kulle shay-in qadeer.

Certainly I have performed some of the etiquette from your visitation, O my master! If I have performed what was obligatory on me, O my master! I have performed by making your courtyard abode of resting but as I am the son of the world, I worked hard in it as per my habit of the past, then I ask Allah, the Caring, the Merciful, to send blessing upon Muhammad and the progeny of Muhammad, and not to decide this time of my visit to you as the last and for all the believers, surely He is Most Merciful and He has power over all things.

Then implore (Almighty Allah) for your legitimate desires which surely will be fulfilled if Allah – the High – wills.[10]

The author says: Late Sayed Ibn Taaoos (r.a.) has written too much about the farewell of Ramazan al-Mubarak, some of which may be stated hereunder. He says:

You claim that in some of those farewell the departing of the month of Ramazan has made you sorrowful because you could not be benefitted fully from its blessings. So it is expected from you to be truthful in your claim, you should be truthful in your claim, your face should look melancholic and there should be no sign of falsehood and looseness of character in your conversation during the last days.

It is there in the duties of the Shias rather in the nation of the Holy Prophet (s.a.w.a.) that they should be fearful of the Almighty Allah and they should be mournful for the delayed reappearance of Hazrat Imam Mahdi (a.t.f.s.) which was predicted by his honorable forefather the Holy Prophet (s.a.w.a.) and we could have achieved the blessings through his medium if he (a.s.) would have existed amongst us. There is a couplet in this regard:

اُرَدِّدُ طَرْفِيْ فِيْ الدِّيَارِ فَلَا اَرٰی

 

وَجُوْہُ اَحِبَّآئِیَ الدِّیْنِ اُرِیْدُ

I am searching with my eyes in every corner of the city but I am unable to see the face of my friend whose face I wanted to see.

In fact the occultation of Imam Mahdi (a.t.f.s.) is more severe upon the religious persons than the deprevation of the month of Ramazan.

This disappearance from a kind father or a helping brother or an obedient son must be the cause of anguish and distraction and which could be disheartening.

Although there is no comparison in their existence and the existence of Hazrat Imam Mahdi (a.t.f.s.) because he (a.t.f.s.) is the successor of the Holy Prophet (s.a.w.a.) and is the Imam of Hazrat Eesaa (a.s.) in the salaat and sovereignty. And he (a.t.f.s.) is the dispenser of disturbances and tribulations and the rectifier of the matters of all the persons living under the sky.[11]
