Ziyarat Ashura


When performing the 40 days amaal of Ziyarat e ashura, is it a must to recite the curse and salaam a 100 times each? Or can I recite 10 of each?


Alaikum Salaam

Ziarat Ashura is a recommended act and thus one should recite it according to one’s capacity, i.e. if 100 is difficult, then 10 is sufficient

An alternative is to spread the 100 curse and salaam throughout the day, i.e. recite the ziarat in the morning, and spread the 100 curse and salaam across your free time during the day and conclude the last sajdah and 2 rakaat prayer at night. This is something which the scholars have mentioned.

Keep us in your prayers please
