The merits of visiting Imam Hussein (AS) on the 15th day of Shaaban

* Ali Bin Al-Hussein (pbuh) said:" He who loves to shake hands with one hundred and twenty four prophets must visit the grave of Abu Abdellah Al-Hussein Bin Ali (pbut) in the 15th of Shaaban because the souls of the prophets (peace be upon them) ask permission from Allah to visit him; hence, they are given permission and the five Olo Azem (Devoted) messengers are among them." 
They asked:" Who are they?" He said:" They are Nouh, Ibrahim, Mousa, Issa and Mohammad (pbut).""

*Ahmad Bin Mohammad Bin Abi Al-Nasr said:"I asked Imam Al-Rida on which month do we visit Al-Hussein (pbuh)? (and in another narration: what is the best time to visit Al-Hussein?) He (pbuh) said:"on the fifteenth of Rajab and on the fifteenth of Shaaban."

*Imam Sadiq (PBUH) said:"whoever visited the grave of Al-Hussein (PBUH) on one of these three nights Allah will forgive all his sins what has come to pass and what will pass, on the night of Al-Fitr, Al-Adha and the 15th of Shaaban"
Imam Sadiq (PBUH) said:"whoever visited the grave of Al-Hussein bin Ali (PBUT) on the night of 15th of Shaaban, the night of Al-Fitr and the night of Arafa in the same year, Allah will has written down that he has done a thousand Pilgrimages (Hajj), a thousand accepted Omra, and Allah will satisfy a thousand needs for him in this world and the last."

*Imam Al-Sadeq (pbuh):”When the first day of Shaaban comes, someone calls from beneath the Throne:”O visitors of Hussein! Don’t let the night before the 15th of Shaaban pass without visiting Al-Hussein (pbuh). For, if you knew its virtue, you would have yearned for the coming of the next year’s 15th of Shaaban.”
