Imam Hasan al-Askari (peace be upon him) said:
The signs of  a true  believer  are  five: 51 rakat of Salat (per day - 17 of which are the obligatory prayers and 34 which are  the recommended daily prayers); Ziyarat Arbaeen; Wearing a ring on the  right  hand (an  Aqeeq ring);  Placing  the  head  on  the earth (during  sajad i n  the  Salat); Openly pronouncing (Bismillahir Rahmaanir Raheem) when reciting the two surahs in the Salat.

Imam Sadiq (a.s.) said:
Allah  will record  a  good  deed and  erase a  sin for every step  taken by  one who performs  the Ziyarat  of  Imam  Husain (a.s.)  on foot. He  will also  add a rank  to his rank. When  he arrives at the grave, Allah will appoint  two angels on him who will only write the good that he speaks and not write anything else that he might say or do.

Imam Sadiq (a.s.) said to me (the narrator):
Husain!  Allah will write a good deed for one who leaves his house to perform the Ziyarat of Imam Husain (a.s.)  on foot and  erase  a  sin  from  him  for  every  step  he  takes. Till he arrives  at  the  holy  shrine, Allah will  write him as one who has  achieved  salvation  and as  the successful one. After he completes the Ziyarat, Allah will write him as the successful one.  When  he decides to return, an  angel will come to him and  say: “Allah’s Messenger  conveys  his  salutation on you and  tells  you that  all  your  previous  sins  are  forgiven. So continue good deeds.”
