ٰImam Ali Ridha (as) is reported to have said

من زار قبر أبي ببغداد كمن زار قبر رسول الله (صلى الله عليه و آله) و قبر أمير المؤمنين (صل) إلا أن لرسول الله و لأمير المؤمنين صلوات الله عليهما فضلهما
Shaykh al-Mufid, al-Shahid, and Muhammad ibn al-Mashhadi have said the following: If you intend to visit Imam al-Kazim (as) in Baghdad, you may first bathe yourself with the intention of visiting him, direct to the holy shrine, stop at its gate, ask permission of entrance, and then enter there while saying the following words:

بِسْمِ ٱللَّهِ وَبِٱللَّهِ
In the Name of Allah (I begin), in Allah (I trust),
وَفِي سَبِيلِ ٱللَّهِ
on the way of Allah (I proceed),
وَعَلَىٰ مِلَّةِ رَسُولِ ٱللَّهِ
and on the norm of the Messenger of Allah,
صَلَّىٰ ٱللَّهُ عَلَيْهِ وَآلِهِ
may Allah bless him and his Household,
وَٱلسَّلاَمُ عَلَىٰ اوْلِيَاءِ ٱللَّهِ
and peace be upon the intimate servants of Allah.
You may then walk until you stop in front of the grave of Musa ibn Ja`far (`a). When you stop there, you may say the following words:
اَلسَّلاَمُ عَلَيْكَ يَا نُورَ ٱللَّهِ فِي ظُلُمَاتِ ٱلارْضِ
Peace be upon you, O light of Allah in the darkness of the earth.
اَلسَّلاَمُ عَلَيْكَ يَا وَلِيَّ ٱللَّهِ
Peace be upon you, O Allah’s intimate servant.
اَلسَّلاَمُ عَلَيْكَ يَا حُجَّةَ ٱللَّهِ
Peace be upon you, O Allah’s argument.
اَلسَّلاَمُ عَلَيْكَ يَا بَابَ ٱللَّهِ
Peace be upon you, O door to Allah.
اشْهَدُ انَّكَ اقَمْتَ ٱلصَّلاَةَ
I bear witness that you performed the prayers,
وَآتَيْتَ ٱلزَّكَاةَ
defrayed the poor-rate,
وَامَرْتَ بِٱلْمَعْرُوفِ
enjoined the right,
وَنَهَيْتَ عَنِ ٱلْمُنْكَرِ
forbade the wrong,
وَتَلَوْتَ ٱلْكِتَابَ حَقَّ تِلاَوَتِهِ
recited the Book as it should be recited,
وَجَاهَدْتَ فِي ٱللَّهِ حَقَّ جِهَادِهِ
strove for the sake of Allah as exactly as strife should be,
وَصَبَرْتَ عَلَىٰ ٱلاذَىٰ فِي جَنْبِهِ مُحْتَسِباً
endured harm for His sake expecting His reward,
وَعَبَدْتَهُ مُخْلِصاً حَتَّىٰ اتَاكَ ٱلْيَقِيـنُ
and served Him sincerely until death came upon you.
اشْهَدُ انَّكَ اوْلَىٰ بِٱللَّهِ وِبِرَسُولِهِ
I bear witness that you are the closest to Allah and His Messenger
وَانَّكَ ٱبْنُ رَسُولِ ٱللَّهِ حَقّاً
and you are verily the son of Allah’s Messenger.
ابْرَا إِِلَىٰ ٱللَّهِ مِنْ اعْدَائِكَ
I repudiate your enemies in the resence of Allah
وَاتَقَرَّبُ إِِلَىٰ ٱللَّهِ بِمُوَالاَتِكَ
and seek nearness to Allah through my loyalty to you.
اتَيْتُكَ يَا مَوْلاَيَ عَارِفاً بِحَقِّكَ
I have come to you, O my master, recognizing your right,
مُوَالِياً لاوْلِيَائِكَ
declaring loyalty to your loyalists,
مُعَادِياً لاعْدَائِكَ
and incurring the animosity of your enemies;
فَٱشْفَعْ لِي عِنْدَ رَبِّكَ
so, (please) intercede for me with your Lord.
You may then throw yourself on the grave, kiss it, place both your cheeks on it, turn to the side of the Imam’s head, stop there, and say the following words:
اَلسَّلاَمُ عَلَيْكَ يَا بْنَ رَسُولِ ٱللَّهِ
Peace be upon you, O son of Allah’s Messenger.
اشْهَدُ انَّكَ صَادِقٌ
I bear witness that you are veracious.
ادَّيْتَ نَاصِحاً
You fulfilled [your duty] sincerely,
وَقُلْتَ امِيناً
spoke honestly,
وَمَضَيْتَ شَهِيداً
and passed away as martyr.
لَمْ تُؤْثِرْ عَمىًٰ عَلَىٰ ٱلْهُدَىٰ
You never preferred blindness to the true guidance
وَلَمْ تَمِلْ مِنْ حَقٍّ إِلَىٰ بَاطِلٍ
and never slanted from right to wrong.
صَلَّىٰ ٱللَّهُ عَلَيْكَ
May Allah send blessings upon you,
وَعَلَىٰ آبَائِكَ وَابْنَائِكَ ٱلطَّاهِرِينَ
upon your fathers, and upon your sons the immaculate.
You may then kiss the grave and offer a two-unit prayer. You may then offer any prayer you like. After that, you may prostrate yourself and say the following supplicatory words:
اَللَّهُمَّ إِِلَيْكَ ٱعْتَمَدْتُ
O Allah, I have had recourse to You,
وَإِِلَيْكَ قَصَدْتُ
made my way to You,
وَبِفَضْلِكَ رَجَوْتُ
hoped for Your favoring,
وَقَبْرَ إِِمَامِيَ ٱلَّذِي اوْجَبْتَ عَلَيَّ طَاعَتَهُ زُرْتُ
visited the tomb of my Imam the obedience to whom You have made obligatory on me,
وَبِهِ إِِلَيْكَ تَوَسَّلْتُ
and I have chosen him as my means to You;
فَبِحَقِّهِمُ ٱلَّذِي اوْجَبْتَ عَلَىٰ نَفْسِكَ
so, [I beseech You] in the name of their rights which You have made incumbent upon Yourself,
ٱغْفِرْ لِي وَلِوَالِدَيَّ وَلِلْمُؤْمِنِينَ
forgive me, my parents, and the believers,
يَا كَرِيـمُ
O All-generous.
You may then put your right cheek on the ground and say the following supplicatory words:
اَللَّهُمَّ قَدْ عَلِمتَ حَوَائِجِي
O Allah, You have already known my requests
فَصَلِّ عَلَىٰ مُحَمَّدٍ وَآلِ مُحَمَّدٍ وَٱقْضِهَا
so, bless Muhammad and the Household of Muhammad and settle them for me.
You may then put your left cheek on the ground and say the following supplicaroty words:
اَللَّهُمَّ قَدْ احْصَيْتَ ذُنُوبِي
O Allah, You have certainly taken account of my sins;
فَبِحَقِّ مُحَمَّدٍ وَآلِ مُحَمَّدٍ
so, [I beseech You] in the name of Muhammad and the Household of Muhammad,
صَلِّ عَلَىٰ مُحَمَّدٍ وَآلِ مُحَمَّدٍ
send blessings upon Muhammad and the Household of Muhammad,
وَٱغْفِرْهَا وَتَصَدَّقْ عَلَيَّ بِمَا انْتَ اهْلُهُ
forgive them, and grant me as charity that which suits You.
You may then return to the position of prostration and repeat the following word one hundred times:
You may then raise your head from prostration and pray for whatever you wish and whomever you wish.
