O carefully examined (lady): Allah Who created you had tried you before He created you (for this worldly life), and thus He found you successfully enduring in that trial. We claim being loyalists to you, believers in you, and tolerant as regards all that which has been conveyed to us by your father, peace of Allah be upon him and his Household, and all that which his Successor has brought to us. that you may include us with those who believe in both of them (i.e. the Holy Prophet and Imam `Al¢), so that we may feel happy that we have been purified on account of our loyalty to you. يَا مُمْتَحَنَةُ امْتَحَنَكِ اللَّهُ الَّذِي خَلَقَكِ قَبْلَ أَنْ يَخْلُقَكِ، فَوَجَدَكِ لِمَا امْتَحَنَكِ صَابِرَةً، وَ زَعَمْنَا أَنَّا لَكِ أَوْلِيَاءُ وَ مُصَدِّقُونَ، وَ صَابِرُونَ لِكُلِّ مَا أَتَانَا بِهِ أَبُوكِ صَلَّى اللَّهُ عَلَيْهِ وَ آلِهِ، وَ أَتَى [أَتَانَا] بِهِ وَصِيُّهُ، فَإِنَّا نَسْأَلُكِ إِنْ كُنَّا صَدَّقْنَاكِ إِلّا أَلْحَقْتِنَا بِتَصْدِيقِنَا لَهُمَا، لِنُبَشِّرَ أَنْفُسَنَا بِأَنَّا قَدْ طَهُرْنَا بِوِلايَتِكِ.

Peace be upon you, O mother of al-Hasan and al-Husayn, the two chiefs of the youth of Paradise. Peace be upon you, O veracious and martyr. Peace be upon you, O content and pleased. Peace be upon you, O virtuous and pure. Peace be upon you, O Paradisiacal human being. Peace be upon you, O pious and immaculate. Peace be upon you, O one talked by the angels, O knowledgeable. Peace be upon you, O oppressed lady whose right was usurped. Peace be upon you, O persecuted and maltreated. Peace be upon you, O Fatimah the daughter of the Messenger of Allah. So be upon you the mercy and blessings of Allah. May Allah bless you, your soul, and your body. السَّلامُ عَلَيْكِ يَا أُمَّ الْحَسَنِ وَ الْحُسَيْنِ سَيِّدَيْ شَبَابِ أَهْلِ الْجَنَّةِ، السَّلامُ عَلَيْكِ أَيَّتُهَا الصِّدِّيقَةُ الشَّهِيدَةُ، السَّلامُ عَلَيْكِ أَيَّتُهَا الرَّضِيَّةُ الْمَرْضِيَّةُ، السَّلامُ عَلَيْكِ أَيَّتُهَا الْفَاضِلَةُ الزَّكِيَّةُ، السَّلامُ عَلَيْكِ أَيَّتُهَا الْحَوْرَاءُ الْإِنْسِيَّةُ، السَّلامُ عَلَيْكِ أَيَّتُهَا التَّقِيَّةُ النَّقِيَّةُ، السَّلامُ عَلَيْكِ أَيَّتُهَا الْمُحَدَّثَةُ الْعَلِيمَةُ، السَّلامُ عَلَيْكِ أَيَّتُهَا الْمَظْلُومَةُ الْمَغْصُوبَةُ، السَّلامُ عَلَيْكِ أَيَّتُهَا الْمُضْطَهَدَةُ الْمَقْهُورَةُ، السَّلامُ عَلَيْكِ يَا فَاطِمَةُ بِنْتَ رَسُولِ اللَّهِ وَ رَحْمَةُ اللَّهِ وَ بَرَكَاتُهُ، صَلَّى اللَّهُ عَلَيْكِ وَ عَلَى رُوحِكِ وَ بَدَنِكِ،
I bear witness that you have spent your life with full awareness of your duty towards your Lord and (I bear witness) that he who pleases you will have pleased the Messenger of Allah, peace be upon him and his Household, and he who displeases you will have displeased the Messenger of Allah, peace be upon him and his Household, and he who harms you will have harmed the Messenger of Allah, peace be upon him and his Household, and he who respects you will have respected the Messenger of Allah, peace be upon him and his Household, and he who disrespects you will have disrespected the messenger of Allah, peace be upon him and his Household. This is because you are an inseparable part of him (i.e. the Holy Prophet), and you are his soul with which he lives. I ask Allah, His Messengers, and His angels to be the witnesses that I am verily pleased with him whomever you accept, I am displeased with him whomever you detest, I disavow him whomever you disavow, I am loyal to him whomever you support, I am the enemy of him whomever you betake as enemy, I am hateful to him whomever you hate, and I like him whomever you like. Verily, Allah is Sufficient as Witness, Reckoner, Punisher, and Rewarder. أَشْهَدُ أَنَّكِ مَضَيْتِ عَلَى بَيِّنَةٍ مِنْ رَبِّكِ، وَ أَنَّ مَنْ سَرَّكِ فَقَدْ سَرَّ رَسُولَ اللَّهِ صَلَّى اللَّهُ عَلَيْهِ وَ آلِهِ، وَ مَنْ جَفَاكِ فَقَدْ جَفَا رَسُولَ اللَّهِ صَلَّى اللَّهُ عَلَيْهِ وَ آلِهِ، وَ مَنْ آذَاكِ فَقَدْ آذَى رَسُولَ اللَّهِ صَلَّى اللَّهُ عَلَيْهِ وَ آلِهِ، وَ مَنْ وَصَلَكِ فَقَدْ وَصَلَ رَسُولَ اللَّهِ صَلَّى اللَّهُ عَلَيْهِ وَ آلِهِ، وَ مَنْ قَطَعَكِ فَقَدْ قَطَعَ رَسُولَ اللَّهِ صَلَّى اللَّهُ عَلَيْهِ وَ آلِهِ، لِأَنَّكِ بَضْعَةٌ مِنْهُ، وَ رُوحُهُ الَّذِي بَيْنَ جَنْبَيْهِ، كَمَا قَالَ صَلَّى اللَّهُ عَلَيْهِ وَ آلِهِ، أُشْهِدُ اللَّهَ وَ رُسُلَهُ وَ مَلائِكَتَهُ أَنِّي رَاضٍ عَمَّنْ رَضِيتِ عَنْهُ، سَاخِطٌ عَلَى مَنْ سَخِطْتِ عَلَيْهِ، مُتَبَرِّئٌ مِمَّنْ تَبَرَّأْتِ مِنْهُ، مُوَالٍ لِمَنْ وَالَيْتِ، مُعَادٍ لِمَنْ عَادَيْتِ، مُبْغِضٌ لِمَنْ أَبْغَضْتِ، مُحِبٌّ لِمَنْ أَحْبَبْتِ، وَ كَفَى بِاللَّهِ شَهِيداً وَ حَسِيباً وَ جَازِياً وَ مُثِيباً.
You may then invoke Almighty Allah’s blessings upon the Holy Prophet (s) and Imams.

I bear witness that you have spent your life with full awareness of your duty towards your Lord; and (I bear witness) that he who pleases you will have pleased the Messenger of Allah, peace be upon him and his Household, he who displeases you will have displeased the Messenger of Allah, peace be upon him and his Household, he who harms you will have harmed the Messenger of Allah, peace be upon him and his Household, he who respects you will have respected the Messenger of Allah, peace be upon him and his Household, and he who disrespects you will have disrespected the messenger of Allah, peace be upon him and his Household. This is because you are an inseparable part of him (i.e. the Holy Prophet), and you are his soul with which he lives. I ask Allah and His angels to be the witnesses that I am the friend of him who adheres to you, I am the enemy of him who makes an enemy of you, and I am in war against him who wages war against you. O my doyenne, I have full faith in you, your father, your husband, and your sons—the Imams, I believe in their (Divinely commissioned) leadership, and I commit myself to the obedience to them. I bear witness that their religion is the true religion, their command is the true command, they have conveyed on behalf of Almighty Allah (flawlessly), and they have called to the Way of Allah with wisdom and fair exhortation. They have never feared the blame of anyone concerning carrying out their duty towards Almighty Allah. Blessings of Allah be upon you and upon your father, your husband, and your descendants—the Immaculate Imams. O Allah, (please do) send blessings upon Muhammad and his Household and send blessings upon the chaste, the immaculate, the veracious, the infallible, pious, pure, amiable, well-pleased, virtuous, right-minded, oppressed, and wronged lady whose right was usurped, whose right of inheritance was violated, whose rib was broken, whose husband was persecuted, and whose son was slain; (she is) Fatimah: the daughter of Your Messenger, the inseparable part of his flesh, أُشْهِدُ اللَّهَ وَ مَلائِكَتَهُ أَنِّي وَلِيٌّ لِمَنْ وَالاكِ، وَ عَدُوٌّ لِمَنْ عَادَاكِ، وَ حَرْبٌ لِمَنْ حَارَبَكِ، أَنَا يَا مَوْلاتِي بِكِ وَ بِأَبِيكِ وَ بَعْلِكِ وَ الْأَئِمَّةِ مِنْ وُلْدِكِ مُوقِنٌ، وَ بِوِلايَتِهِمْ مُؤْمِنٌ، وَ لِطَاعَتِهِمْ مُلْتَزِمٌ، أَشْهَدُ أَنَّ الدِّينَ دِينُهُمْ، وَ الْحُكْمَ حُكْمُهُمْ، وَ هُمْ قَدْ بَلَّغُوا عَنِ اللَّهِ عَزَّ وَ جَلَّ، وَ دَعَوْا إِلَى سَبِيلِ اللَّهِ بِالْحِكْمَةِ وَ الْمَوْعِظَةِ الْحَسَنَةِ، لا تَأْخُذُهُمْ فِي اللَّهِ لَوْمَةُ لائِمٍ، وَ صَلَوَاتُ اللَّهِ عَلَيْكِ وَ عَلَى أَبِيكِ وَ بَعْلِكِ وَ ذُرِّيَّتِكِ الْأَئِمَّةِ الطَّاهِرِينَ، اللَّهُمَّ صَلِّ عَلَى مُحَمَّدٍ وَ أَهْلِ بَيْتِهِ، وَ صَلِّ عَلَى الْبَتُولِ الطَّاهِرَةِ، الصِّدِّيقَةِ الْمَعْصُومَةِ، التَّقِيَّةِ النَّقِيَّةِ، الرَّضِيَّةِ الْمَرْضِيَّةِ، الزَّكِيَّةِ الرَّشِيدَةِ، الْمَظْلُومَةِ الْمَقْهُورَةِ، الْمَغْصُوبَةِ [الْمَغْصُوبِ ] حَقُّهَا، الْمَمْنُوعَةِ [الْمَمْنُوعِ ] إِرْثُهَا، الْمَكْسُورَةِ [الْمَكْسُورِ] ضِلْعُهَا، الْمَظْلُومِ بَعْلُهَا، الْمَقْتُولِ وَلَدُهَا، فَاطِمَةَ بِنْتِ رَسُولِكَ وَ بَضْعَةِ لَحْمِهِ،
the essence of his heart, the piece of his innermost, the choice of You for him, the gift that You have given exclusively to the Successor of him, the most beloved of the Preferred Prophet, the wife of the Pleased Successor, the doyenne of all women, the conveyor of good tidings to the intimate servants (of Almighty Allah), the inseparable from piety and asceticism, and the Apple of the Heaven and Eternity (in Paradise); (she is) the lady through whose birth You have honored the women of Paradise, from whom You have pulled the Lights of the Imams, and fixed the Veil of Prophethood. O Allah, (please do) confer upon her with blessings that raise her standing and honor with You, raise her position from Your Pleasure, convey to her our greetings and compliments, and grant us, from You on account of our love for her, favor, kindness, mercy, and forgiveness. Verily, You are the All-generous Lord of pardon. وَ صَمِيمِ قَلْبِهِ ، وَ فِلْذَةِ كَبِدِهِ، وَ النُّخْبَةِ [وَ التَّحِيَّةِ] مِنْكَ لَهُ، وَ التُّحْفَةِ خَصَصْتَ بِهَا وَصِيَّهُ، وَ حَبِيبَةِ [وَ حَبِيبَهُ ] الْمُصْطَفَى، وَ قَرِينَةِ [وَ قَرِينَهُ ] الْمُرْتَضَى، وَ سَيِّدَةِ النِّسَاءِ، وَ مُبَشِّرَةِ الْأَوْلِيَاءِ، حَلِيفَةِ الْوَرَعِ وَ الزُّهْدِ، وَ تُفَّاحَةِ الْفِرْدَوْسِ وَ الْخُلْدِ الَّتِي شَرَّفْتَ مَوْلِدَهَا بِنِسَاءِ الْجَنَّةِ، وَ سَلَلْتَ مِنْهَا أَنْوَارَ الْأَئِمَّةِ، وَ أَرْخَيْتَ دُونَهَا حِجَابَ النُّبُوَّةِ، اللَّهُمَّ صَلِّ عَلَيْهَا صَلاةً تَزِيدُ فِي مَحَلِّهَا عِنْدَكَ، وَ شَرَفِهَا لَدَيْكَ، وَ مَنْزِلَتِهَا مِنْ رِضَاكَ، وَ بَلِّغْهَا مِنَّا تَحِيَّةً وَ سَلاماً، وَ آتِنَا مِنْ لَدُنْكَ فِي حُبِّهَا فَضْلاً وَ إِحْسَاناً وَ رَحْمَةً وَ غُفْرَاناً، إِنَّكَ ذُو الْعَفْوِ الْكَرِيمِ.
Tahdhib al-Ahkam, Shaykh al-Tusi says that the narrations dealing with the merits and rewards of visiting the tomb of Lady Fatimah al-Zahra' (a) (a) are too numerous to be counted.

From the book of Misbah al-Anwar, Allama al-Majlisi has reported Lady Fatimah al-Zahra' (a) as saying, "My father said to me: If one invokes Almighty Allah's blessings upon you, Almighty Allah will forgive him and will join him to me in Paradise wherever I am." [1]
