It is highly advisable to visit the Holy Shrine of Imam al-Riza (a.s) in Rajab, since it enjoys a special rank in this month: Whenever you intend to visit Imam al-Riza (a.s) in Rajab, then perform the ritual bath before you leave your house (at your hometown) and say the following while you are performing the ritual bath:

اَللَّهُمَّ طَهِّرْنِي وَطَهِّرْ قَلْبِي
O God! Please cleanse me, and cleanse my heart!
وَاشْرَحْ لِي صَدْرِي
(Please) ‘expand my breast’,
وَأَجْرِ عَلَى لِسَانِي مِدْحَتَكَ وَالثَّنَاءَ عَلَيْكَ
and let Thy praise and eulogy flow out from my tongue
فإنَّهُ لا حَوْلَ وَلا قُوَّةَ إلاَّ بِكَ.
since indeed there is no power but in Thee.
اَللّهُمَّ اجْعَلْهُ لِي طَهُوراً وَشِفاءً.
O God! Please establish it as a means of cleansing and treatment for me.
...
Say the following as you leave your house:
بِسْم اللهِ الرَّحْمَنِ الرَّحِيمِ
In the name of God, the Beneficent, the Merciful.
بِسْمِ اللهِ، وَبِاللهِ،
In the name of God. By God,
وَإلَى اللهِ، وَإلِى ابْنِ رَسُولِ اللهِ.
I turn to God and towards the son of God’s Prophet.
حَسْبِيَ اللهُ، تَوَكَّلْتُ عَلَى اللهِ.
God suffices me, and I rely on God.
اَللَّهُمَّ إلَيكَ تَوَجَّهْتُ، وَإلَيْكَ قَصَدْتُ،
O God! I have set out to Thee. And I have directed toward You,
وَما عِندَكَ أرَدْتُ.
And I have decided (to get) what is near Thee.
...
When you go out stop at the door of your house and say:
اللّهُمَّ إِلَيْكَ وَجَّهْتُ وَجْهِي،
O God! I have turned my face towards Thee.
وَعَلَيْكَ خَلَّفْتُ أَهْلِي وَمَالِي وَولدِي وَمَا خَوَّلْتَنِي،
And I have left behind my family, wealth and whatever Thee have granted me.
وَبِكَ وَثِقْتُ فَلا تُخَيِّبْنِي يَا مَنْ لا يُخَيَّبُ مَنْ أَرَادَهُ،
I have trusted Thee. Then (please) do not turn me into a loser, O the One who would not make a loser anyone whom Thee wish,
وَلا يُضَيَّعُ مَنْ حَفِظَهُ،
and will not ruin whatever he possesses.
صَلِّ عَلَى مُحَمَّدٍ وَآلِ مُحَمَّدٍ
Blessings be upon Muhammad and Muhammad’s Household.
وَاحْفَظْنِي بِحِفْظِكَ
And (please) guard me under Thy custody
فَإِنَّهُ لا يَضِيعُ مَنْ حَفِظْتَ.
since nothing that Thee guard gets ruined.
Then whenever you want to go to visit, perform the ritual bathing and while you are bathing say:
اللّهُمَّ طَهِّرْنِي،
O God! Please cleanse me,
وَطَهِّرْ لِي قَلْبِي،
and cleanse my heart!
وَاشْرَحْ لِي صَدْرِي،
(Please) ‘expand my breast’;
وَأَجْرِ عَلَى لِسَانِي مِدْحَتَكَ وَمَحَبَّتَكَ وَالثَّنَاءَ عَلَيْكَ،
and let Thy praise, love and eulogy flow out from my tongue
فَإِنَّهُ لا قُوَّةَ إِلاَّ بِكَ،
since indeed there is no power but in Thee.
وَقَدْ عَلِمْتُ أَنَّ قِوَامَ دِينِي التَّسْلِيمُ لأَمْرِكَ،
I have indeed realized that the strength of my religion depends upon my submission to Thy decrees,
وَالإتِّبَاعُ لِسُنَّةِ نَبِيِّكَ،
and the following of Thy Prophet’s traditions,
وَالشَّهَادَةُ عَلَى جَمِيعِ خَلْقِكَ،
and bearing witness (to this) for all Thy creatures.
اللّهُمَّ اجْعَلْهُ لِي شِفَاءً وَنُوراً
O God! Please establish it as a means of healing for me, and as a light,
إِنَّكَ عَلَى كُلِّ شَيْءٍ قَدِيرٌ.
since Thee are capable of all things.
Then put on your cleanest clothes. Walk with bare feet, with calmness, dignity, exaltation, acclamation and glorification of God; that is, you may repeat the following statements:
اللّهُ أَكْبَرُ،
Allah is the Most Great
لا إِلهَ إِلاَّ اللّهُ،
There is no god save Allah
سُبْحَانَ اللّهِ،
All glory be to Allah
الْحَمْدُ لِلّهِ.
All praise be to Allah
...
Take short steps and while you are entering (the holy shrine) say:
بِسْم اللهِ الرَّحْمَنِ الرَّحِيمِ
In the name of God, the Beneficent, the Merciful.
بِسْمِ اللّهِ، وَبِاللّهِ،
In the name of God and by God
وَعَلَى مِلَّةِ رَسُولِ اللّهِ صَلَّى اللّهُ عَلَيْهِ وَآلِهِ،
and to the nation of God’s Prophet: God’s blessings be upon him and his Household.
أَشْهَدُ أَنْ لا إِلهَ إِلاَّ اللّهُ وَحْدَهُ لا شَرِيكَ لَهُ،
I bear witness that there is no god but Allah. He is One and He has no partners.
وَأَشْهَدُ أَنَّ مُحَمَّداً عَبْدُهُ وَرَسُولُهُ،
And I bear witness that Muhammad is His Servant and His Messenger.
وَأَنَّ عَلِيّاً وَلِيُّ اللّهِ.
And I bear witness that Ali is God’s friend.
Then walk until you stop at his tomb. Then face him by turning your back towards the Qibla (prayer direction) and say:
أَشْهَدُ أَنْ لا إِلهَ إِلاَّ اللّهُ وَحْدَهُ لا شَرِيكَ لَهُ،
I bear witness that there is no god but God, the One; and there are no partners for Him.
وَأَشْهَدُ أَنَّ مُحَمَّداً عَبْدُهُ وَرَسُولُهُ،
I bear witness that Muhammad is His Servant and His Messenger.
وَأَنَّهُ سَيِّدُ الأَوَّلِينَ وَالآخِرِينَ،
Verily, he is the Master of all those of old and those of later times.
وَأَنَّهُ سَيِّدُ الأَنْبِيَاءِ وَالْمُرْسَلِينَ.
Verily, he is the Master of the Prophets and the Messengers.

May God’s curse be upon the people who established the foundations of oppression, tyranny and innovation against you—members of the Household (of the Prophet) (a.s)!

Then (please) intercede with God on my behalf on the Day of my poverty and destitution
فَلَكَ عِنْدَ اللّهِ مَقَامٌ مَحْمُودٌ،
as you enjoy an especial praiseworthy position in the presence of God.
وَأَنْتَ عِنْدَهُ وَجِيهٌ.
He considers you to be an eminent man.
Then you raise your right hand up and extend your left hand towards the tomb and say:
اللَّهُمَّ إِنِّي أَتَقَرَّبُ إِلَيْكَ بِحُبِّهِمْ وَبِوِلايَتِهِمْ،
O God! I seek Thy nearness through my love and friendship for them.
أَتَوَلَّى آخِرَهُمْ بِمَا تَوَلَّيْتُ بِهِ أَوَّلَهُمْ،
I love the last one of them as much as I love the first one,
وَأَبْرَأُ مِنْ كُلِّ وَلِيجَةٍ دُونَهُمْ.
and avoid any intimate friendship with anyone but them.
اللَّهُمَّ الْعَنِ الَّذِينَ بَدَّلُوَا نِعْمَتَكَ،
My God! (Please) curse those who altered Thy blessings,
وَاتَّهَمُوَا نَبِيَّكَ،
accused Thy Prophet,
وَجَحَدُوَا بِآيَاتِكَ،
denied Thy verses,
وَسَخِرُوَا بِإِمَامِكَ،
mocked Thy appointed leader,
وَحَمَلُوَا النَّاسَ عَلَى أَكْتَافِ آلِ مُحَمَّدٍ.
and placed the burden of the people upon the shoulders of the members of the Household of Muhammad (a.s).
اللَّهُمَّ إِنِّي أَتَقَرَّبُ إِلَيْكَ بِاللَّعْنَةِ عَلَيْهِمْ وَالْبَرَاءَةِ مِنْهُمْ فِي الدُّنْيَا وَالآخِرَةِ يَا رَحْمانُ.
O God! I seek Thy nearness by cursing them (your enemies), and by staying away from them in this world and in the Hereafter, O the Beneficent!
Then you turn towards the position of his feet and say:
صَلَّى اللّهُ عَلَيْكَ يَا أَبَا الْحَسَنِ،
O Abu’l-Hasan! May God’s blessings be upon you!
صَلَّى اللّهُ عَلَى رُوحِكَ وَبَدَنِكَ،
May God’s blessings be upon your soul and your body!
صَبَرْتَ وَأَنْتَ الصَّادِقُ المُصَدَّقُ،
You persevered. You were truthful and your truthfulness has been confirmed.
قَتَلَ اللّهُ مَنْ قَتَلَكَ بِالأَيْدِي وَالأَلْسُنِ.
May God curse whoever martyred you with his hands and tongue.
