'O God, carry us in the ships of Thy deliverance, give us to enjoy the pleasure of whispered prayer to Thee, make us drink at the pools of Thy love, let us taste the sweetness of Thy affection and nearness, allow us to struggle in Thee, preoccupy us with obeying Thee, and purify our intentions in devoting works to Thee, for we exist through Thee and belong to Thee, and we have no one to mediate with Thee but Thee!' Imam Sajjad ('A); Sahifa al-Sajjadiyya

Imam Sadiq [as]'s secret to Safwaan

"O Safwaan! Allah has sworn that one who recites my grandfather's (Imam Husain [as]) ziyaarat from near or afar, and raises his hands to seek his demands after reciting this ziyaarat, shall find Allah fulfilling his demands. Allah, on account of this ziyaarat, shall not let disappointment and dejection befall his servant. Allah will bestow him with nothing less than Paradise andimmunise him from the Fire. His stature shall be elevated manifold, so that he will be bestowed with powers of intercession on the day of mahshar. O Safwaan! Reciting Ziyaarat of Imam Husain (a.s) is equal to Ziyaarat of Allah at the Arsh (throne)."
(Bihar al-Anwar vol.98 pg 300)
