Her position among Ahl-e-Bait (a.s.)
Among the children of the seventh Imam(a.s.), Hazrat Fatimah Masooma bint Musa ibn Jafar(a.s.) has a special position after Imam Ali Riza(a.s). Due to her faith, virtuousness and training under the guardianship of Imamate she reached such a position that the Masoom (Imam) gave her the title of Masoomah (infallible), and because of her worship and abstemiousness she acquired the status of intercession. This is why the most learned scholars, the greatest Maraje', and the real Gnostics are humbly standing at her holy shrine saying:
“O’ Fatima! Intercede for me in Paradise, because you have a great station near Allah …”
O Fatimah(a.s.) intercede for us in heaven since you have reached a dignified status from a high rank with Allah(swt)
There is a tradition that states that out of the eight gates of heaven, one will open towards Qom and due to her intercession all Shias will go to heaven.
Visitors entitled to Heaven
In tradition it is excessively mentioned that whoever visits (does ziyarat of) Hazrat Masoomah(a.s.), heaven is incumbent upon that person and this position is obtained by her after the fourteen Masoomeen(a.s.).
Imam Riza(a.s.) has said:
Whoever visits her (performs her ziyarat) acknowledging her right, is entitled to heaven.
In Kamil-al-ziyarah it is quoted from Imam Riza(a.s)
Whoever does the ziyarat of Masooma in Qom it is as though he/she has done my ziyarat
Haram of Ahl-e-Bait (a.s.)
Imam Jafer Sadiq (a.s) says: Haram of Allah(swt) – Mecca, Haram of Rasool(sawaw) – Madina, Haram of Imam Ali(a.s.) – Kufa, and the Haram of Ahlul bait(a.s.) is Qom.
"Whoever performs the Ziyarah of Fatima Masumah (S.A.) will be awarded heaven". Also: "Whoever performs the Ziyarah of 'Fatima Masumah' with the knowledge of her status will attain paradise "
- Imam Ali Ar-Ridha (a.s)
