the shrine of Fatima Masumeh

by supergold

The Shrine of Fatima Masumeh is located in Qom, Iran, which is considered by Shia Muslims to be the second most sacred city in Iran after Mashhad. Fatima Masumeh was the sister of the eighth Imam Reza and the daughter of the seventh Imam Musa al-Kadhim. In Shia Islam, women are often revered as saints if they are close relatives to one of the Twelver Imams. Fatima Masumeh is therefore honored as a saint, and her shrine in Qom is considered one of the most significant Shi'i shrines in Iran. Every year, thousands of Shi'i Muslims travel to Qom to honor Fatima Masumeh and ask her for blessings. They gather in prayer halls not just to read supplications but to have a greater bond with the almighty God and to achieve a wonderful inner tranquility.
