Researchers in the field of pilgrimage, in order to prove the virtue of pilgrimage of the Infallibles (PBUH) on foot, as a method of pilgrimage that has many enthusiasts, have relied on generalities such as the absolute virtue of walking, bowing rituals, etc which are necessary in their place. However, there are special evidences in this regard and specifically in relation to the pilgrimage of Imam Hussein (AS), Imam Ali (AS), Imam Reza (AS) and Imam Baqir (AS) which have not been fully collected and It suffers from a lack of coherent analysis and accurate signification. Therefore, these narrations still need comprehensive and systematic writings to collect, categorize and imply their significance. Among the narrations on the virtue of pilgrimage of Imams (AS) on foot, there are seven narrations related to the virtue of pilgrimage of Imam Reza (AS) on foot. The present article presents these narrations in three categories and analyzes them. Finally, the shortcomings of chain of tradition in some narrations and the shortcomings of implication in others have prevented them from accepting their implication on the virtue of the pilgrimage of Imam Reza (as) on foot.
