To Prostrate for Other than Allah

Q: Visiting the shrine of the infallible (a.), some people prostrate at the entrance? Is it permissible?
A: To make sajdah for other than Allah is ḥarām. As to those people who seem to prostrate at the entrance to the shrine of the infallible (a.), it is not a problem if they intend to make sajdah to thanks Allah or they want to kiss the entrance.
