Imam Muhammad Bin Ali Al-Baqir was once asked regarding the method in which to perform the ZIyarah of Imam Hussein from far distances.

The Imam said, "If one recites Ziyarat Ashura, then they have recited the prayer that is said by the angels who visit Imam Hussein. They will be also raised one hundred million ranks to join the rank of those who were martyred with him (i.e. Imam Hussein) and will be included with them.

They will also be awarded the reward of the visiting all Prophets and Messengers as well as the reward of all the visitors of Imam Hussein since the day of his martyrdom."
