Merits of Karbala

Kaamil az-Ziyaarat [the new print], it says:From Al-baqir : “ Whoever visits Husayn on the day of ‘Ashoora, until he sits there crying : he will meet Allaah on the Day of Judgement with the reward of thousands and thousands of Hajj , and thousands and thousands of Umrah, and the reward of thousands and thousands of battles. And the reward of each of these Hajj and Umra and battles is like the reward of one which is done toghether with the Prophet (sallahAllahu alayhi wasallam), and the guided Imaams may peace be on all of them. ”

Book named “Kamil az-ziyarat”It says :

” Allaah The Blessed The Exalted created the land of Karbalaa 24,000 years before He created the Ka’bah. And made it holy and blessed it. So it has’nt ceased to be blessed and holy among the creations of Allaah, and it wont cease to be like that until Allaah makes it the best of the lands of paradise , and the best of places and abodes in which Allaah rests in it His allies. ”
