In his book of ‘al-Balad al-Amin’, Sheikh al-Kafamiy has reported Imam al-Sadiq (asws) as saying that one may stop at the holy tomb of Imam al-Hussain (asws) and say the following:
All praise be to Allah the Most High, the All-great (Aliul Azeem).
Salam be upon you; O the righteous, pure servant of Allah.
I entrust with You a testimony of mine that takes me near You on the day of Your intercession
I testify that although You were slain, You have not died;
Rather the hearts of Your Shia are living on the hope that You are alive;
And those seeking You have been guided to the right path by Your illuminating Noor.
And I testify that You are the Noor of Allah that shall never be extinguished
And You are the Face of Allah that has not and shall never perish.
And I bear witness that this soil is Yours And this holy precinct is Yours. And this death is the death of Your body only
You have never been humiliated because Allah is the One Who is pouring honor upon You
And You have never been defeated because Allah is the One Who is supporting you.
I would like You to keep this testimony of mine with You up to the day when my soul will be in Your presence.
May the salam, mercy and blessings of Allah be upon You
