Hazrat Sayyedina Abu-Bakr Shibli Rahmatullahi ‘alayh every day from the first of Muharram up to the tenth of Muharram, used to read 4 rakahs nafl. In every rakah Surah Fatiha once, Surah Ikhlas 15 times and after completing the prayer used to bless the reward before the sacred soul of Hazrat Sayyedina wa Maulana Imam Hussain alayhis ‘salam. Thus one day Hazrat Shibly Rahmatullahi ‘alayh saw in his dream that Hazrat Sayyedina Imam Hussain alayhis ‘salam turned his face away from Hazrat Shibly Rahmatullahi ‘alayh .
Hazrat Shibly Rahmatullahi ‘alayh requested
“Highness! what error have I done?”
“Not an error! Our eyes show humility due to your favour. Until We on the Day of Judgement do not return the favour until then I will not be able to look you in the eye.”
Hazrat Sayyedina Wa Maulana Imam Hussain alayhis ‘salam shall intercede for the performers of this prayer on the Day of Judgement.
