Dear all: Congratulations on the aupspicious birth anniversary of Lady Masuma i.e., Imam Reza (pbuh)'s sister.

***The high status of Lady Fatima Masuma (SA)

Some traditions that are indicative of her status are mentioned below:

1. In the salutation (Ziyārat) of Lady Fāṭima Maʿṣūma (SA) which has been narrated from Imam Riḍā (AS) one reads:
وَاَنْ لا یَسْلُبَنا مَعْرِفَتَکُمْ اِنَّهُ وَلىُّ قَدیرٌ
“(We ask from Allah) not to deprive us from understanding your status. Indeed, He is the Protector and has Power over everything.”

2. The authentic tradition from Imam Riḍā (AS):
مَنْ زارَ الْمَعْصومَةَ بِقُمْ کَمَنْ زارَنى
“Whoever visits Maʿṣūma in Qum is like the one who has visited me.”
This tradition implies that the rewards and benefits awarded to a pilgrim are the same whether he does the pilgrimage of Lady Fāṭima Maʿṣūma (SA) or Imam Riḍā (AS). Also, from this tradition, we get the title of Maʿṣūma (infallible) that was given to this noble lady by Imam (AS) himself.

3. The authentic tradition from Imam Ṣādiq (AS):
وَسَتُدْفَنُ فیها امْرَأةٌ مِنْ اَوْلادى تُسَمّى فاطِمَةَ، فَمَنْ زارَها وَجَبَتْ لَهُ الجنّة
“A lady from my children, by the name of Fāṭima will be buried in Qum. Whoever visits her [shrine], will certainly be admitted to Heaven.”
This narration also illustrates the high status of this noble lady, because her pilgrim is ensured entry into Heaven.
