,,Mr. Radi-ud-Din, Ali Ibn Musa Ibn Tawus Al-Hasani, narrated in his book Falah-us-Sa’il by one of the imams of the people of the house (a.). So he said: โ€žIf you want to see your deceased, spend the night with purification (washing) and lie down on your right side and say the praises of Fatimah (a.).โ€

โ€žSay on this: God, You are the Living One, Who is indescribable and from Whom knowledge is obtained through faith. From you things began and to you they return. Whatever of them occurred, you were their refuge and harbor, and whatever of them retreated, for that there was no refuge or harbor from you, except to you. So I ask You by “There is no God but You” and I ask You by “In the name of God, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful” and I ask You by the right of Your beloved, Muhammad, God bless him and his family, the Lord of the Prophets and by the right of Ali, the best of the representatives and by the right of Fatimah, the Lady of the Women of the Worlds and by the right of Hasan and Husain, whom You made the masters of the youth of all the people of Paradise, to bless Muhammad and his family and the people of his house and to show me my deceased in the situation he is in. โ€

Be that as it may. I taught this prayer of supplication to a youth. Then he went away and when he returned the next night, he said to me: โ€žI could not sleep yesterday until dawn and after morning prayer I fell asleep. Then I saw my father in a bad situation and he asked me to intercede for him with the Mistress Fatimah Zahra’ (a.) so that he could be saved from his bad situation and he said to me: ๏ดพThen I understood that the intercession of the Mistress Zahra’ (a.) is the most important middle (Wasilah). So excuse me, O my son, to the Lady Fatimah (a.), for I left the world while I had love in my heart for her enemies.๏ดฟ

Iย said: ๏ดพFather, the teacher to whom you refer me has died. Did you see him here?๏ดฟ He said: ๏ดพNothing. They did not bring him to this place where I am.๏ดฟ At this point of the conversation, I left the dream. I awoke from sleep, but I had not seen my teacher in the dream. Neither yesterday nor this morning. Is it possible, then, that I should say this supplication this night, that I may see him?โ€ I said to him: โ€žYou see him, if God willing, but if you do not succeed in seeing him, then repeat the supplication the night after. Then in the night after until you see him and with God’s permission you reach the increase of perfection through the effect of your spiritual connection with the Teacher.โ€ [Al-Kamalat-ur-Ruhiyyah, Page 181 – 182]
