That man who is standing at the portal is Allamah Majlesi who has been called “The Mediator for visiting the holy Imams (P.B.U.T.)” by the holy Prophet Muhammad (May Allah’s peace be upon him and his Ahlul Bayt) himself.
Ayatollah Sayyid Abbas Kashani related a memory to Abul Hassan Mondhar that one day Ayatollah Mar’ashi told me about his dream which is as follows:
I deeply loved Allamah Majlesi. Whenever I remembered his words, I wondered why some people dared to make unfounded allegations against him. One night, I desperately appealed to Hazrat Fatimah al-Zahra (May Allah’s Peace be upon her), Al-Siddīqah, to show me the status of Allamah Majlesi in Barzakh. The same night, I dreamed that I had been to the Wadi-us-Salaam cemetery to recite Fatiha for all the believers, mullahs and my teachers who were buried there. I saw that Wadi-us-Salaam was a vast desert full of turbans! The people there were all scholars, as if I knew them all in my dream: “Sheikh Koleini”, “Sheikh Saduq”, “Sheikh Mufid”, “Sallar”, “Ibn Hamzah”, prominent ulamas (religious scholars) of Mashhad, etc.
The Hajj Sheikh which I saw among them was “Haj Mirza Hussayn Nouri”, the compiler of Mustadrak al-Wasa’il (مستدرکالوسائل). I had never seen Mirza Hussayn Nouri before, but it was as if I had visited and known him beforehand. I saw that up there, on the side of the Qiblah, there was a massive portal decorated with woodworks; it was closed and a man was standing beside it. I asked Haji Nouri where that place was. He replied: “This is part of Najaf’s Wadi-us-Salaam.
When I looked there, I saw no signs of any grave, but its weather and its atmosphere were so pleasant that I never wanted to leave there.
Haji Nouri said: The souls of Shiite believers from anywhere in the world would be transferred to the Wadi-us-Salaam when the believers are dead, and they would enjoy from its blessings until the Resurrection Day. Today, the Holy Prophet (P.B.U.H), the holy Imams (P.B.U.T.), and Hazrat Zahra (P.B.U.H.) have given public permission so that their representatives could meet them. Behind this portal there is a garden where the Holy Prophet (P.B.U.H), the holy Imams (P.B.U.T.), and Hazrat Zahra (P.B.U.H.) have gathered together. That man who is standing at the portal is Allamah Majlesi who has been called “The Mediator for visiting the holy Imams (P.B.U.T.)” by the holy Prophet Muhammad (May Allah’s peace be upon him and his Ahlul Bayt) himself.
The Allamah called the ulama in pairs, for instance, “Muhammd Ibn Ya’qub Koleini and Saduq”, “Sheikh Mufid and Sheikh Tousi”, “Sayyid Radhi and Sayyid Mortadha” etc., and they also visited the Prophet (May Allah’s peace be upon him and his Ahlul Bayt) in pairs. I was suddenly awakened from viewing the fear and awe of that event in such an atmosphere.
