You may then offer a six-unit prayer of ziy¡rah; two for visiting Am¢r al-Mu'min¢n (‘a), two for visiting Prophet Adam (‘a), and two for visiting Prophet Noah (‘a). You may also supplicate Almighty Allah as earnestly as possible, for your prayers are responded at this place, Allah willing.

The author of al-Maz¡r al-Kab¢r says that this form of ziy¡rah is dedicated to the seventeenth day (of Rab¢` al-Awwal) at sunrise. Commenting on this form of ziy¡rah, `All¡mah al-Majlis¢ says that it is one of the most favorable formulas that has been reported through authoritative chains of authority and has been written down in authentic reference books. According to some narrations that reported this form, it is not dedicated to this day; therefore, it is recommended to visit the holy tomb of Imam `Al¢ (‘a) with this form of ziy¡rah at any time.
