Virtue of pilgrimage from Imam Reza’s (AS) point of view
Juwayni Shafiʿi through his chains narrated from Faddal who said, ‘I heard Ali b. Musa al-Reza (AS) said when someone came and told him, “O, the son of the Holy Prophet (pbuh) I saw the Apostle of Allah (pbuh), in my dream and he asked how you would be when some part [descendant] of mine would be buried in your land and my flesh would be hidden there; how you would keep my deposit. “Ali b. Musa al-Reza (AS) answered him, “It is me who will be buried in your land. I am a part [offspring] of the Holy Prophet (pbuh); and it is me who is his trust and flesh.”

“Whoever visits my grave while he has a true knowledge of me and he is obedient to me, my ancestors and I will be his intercessors on the Day of Judgment and whoever we are his intercessors will be redeemed from his sins even if he has committed the sins of jinn and men.” Affirming this account Imam al-Reza (AS) said, “Truly my father narrated from his grandfather, from his father, from his ancestors, from the Holy Prophet (pbuh) who said, whoever sees me in his dream it is the same as he really sees me while he is awake, since Satan cannot present himself in my figure nor the figure of any of my successors.” A true dream is part of the seventy features of the Prophet-hood. Therefore, Imam’s tradition authenticates all the dreams about the Holy Prophet (pbuh) and his successors.
Hakim Neyshaburi narrates through his chains that Imam al-Reza (AS) said, “I will be poisoned and then buried in a distant land; I know this as my father, from his father, from his ancestors, from Ali b. Abitalib (AS) from the Holy Prophet (pbuh) taught me. Be aware, whoever visits me in my loneliness, my ancestors and I will be his intercessors on the Day of Judgment and whoever we are his intercessors will be redeemed from his sins even if he has committed the sins of jinn and men.” Juwayni reports it astonishingly and says, “O, what a miracle! It is a shining miracle and glad tiding for eliminating and cancelling of the sins.”
Hakim Neyshaburi narrates through his chains that Imam al-Reza (AS) said, “Whoever visits my far away tomb, I will answer his call for help in three places on the Day of Judgment, when he is given his book of deeds in his left or right hand, when passing over the bridge (Sirat) and when they weigh his acts in the Divine Balance.”
Hakim Neyshaburi also narrates through his chains from Yasir, Imam’s servant, that Imam al-Reza (AS) said, “Do not go on pilgrimages to other tombs, except our shrines. Be aware I will be poisoned cruelly and will be buried in a distant land, whoever visits my shrine, his supplications will be answered and his sins will be forgiven.”
Muhammad Khwaja Parsa Hanafi says, when Maʾmun forcefully imposed on Imam al-Reza (AS) to be his heir apparent, he addressed Maʾmun and said, “By Allah my father narrated me from his father and forefathers, from the Holy Prophet (pbuh) that I will depart meekly from this world before you. The angels in the Heaven and earth will weep for me, and I will be buried in a distant land.”
