The Reward of Visiting Her
“I asked Abal-Hassan Ar-Ridha “a.s.” about Fatima the daughter of Musa bin Jafar “a.s.” so he answered:
“who ever visited her, he would win paradise”.(1)
2- The son of Ar-Ridha “a.s.” said:
“whoever visited the holy shrine of my aunt in Qom, he would gain paradise.” (2)
3- As-Saadiq “a.s.” said:
“Allah “s.w.” surely has a holy house, which is Macca, and the Messenger of God surely had holy house, that is Al-Madeena, and the Prince of the believers Ali “a.s.” has a holy house, which is Kufa, while we a holy house and that is just Qom, in which a woman from my progeny shall be buried, who is called Fatima, and whoever visited her, he should be rewarded by winning paradise. (3)
4- And from him it was also narrated that he said:
“The visit of Fatima Al-Ma'sooma equals the paradise.” (4)
5- From Sa'ad, from Ali bin Musa Ar-Ridha “a.s.”, who said: “O, Sa'ad, do you have a grave?”
I said: I may be sacrificed for you, yes the grave of Fatima, the daughter of Musa bin Ja'far “a.s.”.
Thus Imam “a.s.” said: “Ok. Whoever visited her, knowing her stance, he should win the paradise, and you came on the grave, you should stand at her head direction towards kibla, and say thirty-four times “Allahu Akbar, thirty-three times subhan Allah and say “Al-Hamdulil-Lah thirty-three times, then you say:

O, the most Merciful of the Merciful. (5)
