Arbaeen – The Way to Hussain (as):

Imam Jafar Sadiq (as) said; “When the rays of the sun fall on the visitor of Imam‘s (AS) shrines, it consumes his sins like the fire consumes wooden sticks. The sun does not leave any sin on his body and he returns home sinless. In fact on his return he is granted a status that is not even given to those who shed their blood in Allah‘s path.(Behaarul Anwar, vol 101, pg 15, tradition 14; Kamiluz Ziaraat, pg 298)
