Question:Regarding ziyarat ashura, do you think it’s a good idea if I do the 100 salams & Lanats on the way to work (as I don’t have anything meaningful to do during that time) and can therefore use the extra free time at home for other good deeds? Or would there be more reward in just doing everything in one sitting?

Ayatollah:Sistani

Answer: Yes sure you can do that, or listen to lectures, Quran or Duas also beneficial
Question:What is the correct etiquette for reciting ziyarat from home? As in should we read it standing or sitting?
I see some people raise their hands to the sky (like in Dua), while others recite with their hands on their chest, and others still just point towards Karbala with their pointing finger. Which should I do?

Ayatollah:Sistani

Answer: All are fine. It’s best to stand. You can place hand on chest or down on side of body
