Walk to Karbala - Merits of Walking

Following is narrated from Imam Jaffer el Sadiq (as):

If one of our Shia goes for Imam Hussein's (as) Ziyarat, then he will not return but all his sins will be forgiven. For every step that he or his mount takes, 1,000 virtues are written for him, 1,000 sins are forgiven and his status is elevated by 1,000 degrees. (Biharul Anwar, Vol 101, Pg 25, Tradition 26; KamiluzZiaraat, Pg 134)

When the visitor leaves the house, each and every spot that he steps on, prays for him. (Bihar ul Anwar, Vol 101, Pg 15, Tradition 14)
