Hujjatul Islam Mahdi Ismaeeli, the expert of Hadith Sciences said that Syed Ibn Taoos used the word Nahiya Muqadasa in his book Iqbal al aamal and Misbah that is expected to be the Ziyarat e Nahiya. He said that another possibility is that this ziyarat is narrated from Imam Hadi A.S. but what so ever people were afraid of the brutal government that's why they did not apparently used the name and saying of Imam of their time.
Of the several prescribed Ziyarat of Imam al-Husain (PBUH), one was recited by Imam al-Mahdi (PBUH) and reached us through one of his four special deputies. For that reason, it is known as the Ziyarat that was issued from the sacred side (Ziyarat al-Nahiya al-Muqaddasa). One of the most important features of this Ziyarat is that in different phrases, Imam al-Mahdi (PBUH) graphically describes the events of Ashura and the agony that Imam al-Husain (PBUH) and his family faced on that horrific and ominous day.
The text of Ziyarat al-Nahiya is found in some early Ziyarat collections such as al-Mazar al-Kabir, by Muhammad Ibn Ja’far al-Mash’hadi, pp. 496-513. It is also reported in al-Mazar, by al-Mufid as mentioned in Bihar al-Anwar, vol. 98, pp. 318-329. Of the several prescribed Ziyarat of Imam al Husain (asws), one was recited by Imam al-Mahdi (atand reached us through one of his four special deputies.
Ibn Mashhadi's statement clearly and explicitly denotes that all those who are in the chain of the transmission of this Ziyarat are reliable and trustworthy. The reason why the names of the reporters have not been mentioned along with the Ziyarat is because of the clarity of the reporters' being reliable not only to Mash'hadi but to all the traditionalists. It is very unlikely that the term "reliable reporters" may refer simply to those reporters who are reliable according to him only. Hence, what some scholars have assumed about Ibn Mash'hadi authenticating the immediate masters is not true and it seems to be a distant probability. If he truly meant this, he should have separated the immediate masters from the rest. The narration denotes, therefore, that all the reporters who have passed on these traditions are considered to be reliable according to all or most of the experts in this field. Moreover, no one can and will object that Ibn Mash'hadi is from the recent scholars and that his authentication is not authoritative and valid. I have demonstrated in its appropriate place that the authentication of the recent generations of scholars can be valid insofar as they are not accompanied with reproach of the ancients.
Imam Mahdi AJF addressed Shia in Ziyarat e Nahiya to keep Ashoor alive. This ziyarat served this purpose well.
