Ziyarat-e-Ashura is a sacred tradition (Hadees-e-Qudsi) whose references can be found in Misbah al-Mutahajjid by Shaykh al-Tusi and Kamil al-Ziyarat by Ibn Qulawayh.
In expressing veneration and seeking higher levels of peace for Imam Husain (AS), we are trying to unite with his ideas, thoughts and towering volition, and in cursing his opponents who overtly declared themselves to be muslims and believers, but were extensions of hypocrites, we are trying to flee from all their ideas, thoughts and actions. Hence this recital of Ziyarat Ashura seeks to unite the reciter with the sacred spirit of Imam Husain (AS)

Profound is my sorrow for you. I beg Allah, who honoured you above others, to be generous towards me on account of you,

O Abaa Abdullah, I come nearer and seek greater intimacy with Allah, with His Messenger, with Ameerul Moomineen,

with Faatimah, with Hasan and with you, with the help of your love
وَ بِالْبَرَاءَةِ (مِمَّنْ قَاتَلَكَ وَ نَصَبَ لَكَ الْحَرْبَ وَ بِالْبَرَاءَةِ مِمَّنْ أَسَّسَ أَسَاسَ الظُّلْمِ وَ الْجَوْرِ عَلَيْكُمْ
and patronage, cutting off every connection with those who took up arms against you and killed you. I disconnect all links with those who, in the beginning, took the first steps to take liberties with and bear hard upon you,

I take refuge with Allah and His Messenger free from the guilt of associating with those who laid the foundation for (your suffering), devised and carried out their corrupt plan of action,

cut off all links with your enemies, and with those who planted the seeds of hostility against you, and reject and discard their associates, their followers and their friends.

I make peace with those who made their peace with you, I search out and confront those who waged war against you, I make friends with those who stood by you, I strive against those who came in conflict with you,

therefore, I make a request to Allah to acquaint (me) with the awareness that perceives you and your friends, to set me free from the corrupting influence of your enemies,
أَنْ يَجْعَلَنِي مَعَكُمْ فِي الدُّنْيَا وَ الْآخِرَةِ وَ أَنْ يُثَبِّتَ لِي عِنْدَكُمْ قَدَمَ صِدْقٍ فِي الدُّنْيَا وَ الْآخِرَةِ
to make me keep company with you it, this world and in the Hereafter, stand firm beside you and follow your footsteps closely in this world and in the next world.

I beseech Allah in the name of your right and the purpose He assigned to you, that He overwhelms me with grief in memory of your sorrows, more than the personal grief that torments any one who is in great agony,
مُصِيبَةً مَا أَعْظَمَهَا وَ أَعْظَمَ رَزِيَّتَهَا فِي الْإِسْلاَمِ وَ فِي جَمِيعِ السَّمَاوَاتِ وَ الْأَرْضِ (الْأَرَضِينَ)
sorrows which have no parallel and overshadow all calamities that took place in the history of Islam, for that matter, through out the whole universe.

the herd of hardened criminals, the eternally damned and accursed group, a fact that had been made public by Thee and by Thy Prophet (blessings of Allah be on him and on his children),

who, in every place and at all occasions, drew attention of people to this truism.

O my Allah, I seek nearness to Thee today in this frame of mind, cutting off all links with them for the rest of my life,
بِالْبَرَاءَةِ مِنْهُمْ وَ اللَّعْنَةِ عَلَيْهِمْ وَ بِالْمُوَالاَةِ لِنَبِيِّكَ وَ آلِ نَبِيِّكَ (عَلَيْهِ وَ) عَلَيْهِمُ السَّلاَمُ
