The 3rd of Shaban marks the birth anniversary of Imam Hussain ibn Ali (p).

Imam Hussain (p) is reported to have said:
“There are seventy deeds for the greeting (i.e., saying ‘Assalam Alaykum), sixty-nine are given to the initiator and one is given to the responder.”
[Al-Harrani, Tuhaf al-Uqul, p.248]

:روي عن الإمام الحسين (ع)
“لِلسَّلامِ سَبعونَ حَسَنَةً تِسعَةٌ وَسِتّونَ لِلمُبتَدئِ وَواحِدَةٌ لِلرّادّ”
[الحرّاني، تحف العقول، ص ٢٤٨]
