In Shia Islam , women are often revered as saints if they are close relatives to one of the Twelver Imams . Fatima Masumeh is therefore honored as a saint , and her shrine in Qom is considered one of the most significant Shi'i shrines in Iran . Every year , thousands of Shi'i Muslims travel to Qom to honor Fatima Masumeh and ask her for blessings . For more information on the history of Fatima Masumeh , see Fatima bint Musa .
