English speaking tourists visit Imam Reza’s shrine

MASHHAD, July 27 (MNA) – A group of English speaking student-tourists have visited Imam Reza’s shrine during the last days of Ramadan.

Seventy students from England, Canada and US universities traveled to Iran and visited AQR (Astan Quds Razavi) library and museum. They also visited the holy shrine of Imam Reza – Shias’ 8th Imam – in city of Mashhad.

Visitors included students of different fields of studies and during the visit the tour leaders showed them many historical heritages and exquisite works in addition to ancient Quranic manuscripts in the AQR museum.

An American student among the tourists said that exquisite works displayed in the museum add to the awareness of the Muslims about Quran. He added that great number of documents on Islamic theology presented in the museum would help to save any Muslim from deviation.

Another student in the group said that even non-Muslims would learn a lot from the invaluable works of the Astan Quds Razavi Liberary.

Another American student held that heritages would help us today for better understanding of the history and added that such valuable works are in nowhere in Europe or US so such sources in Mashhad are so precious treasure.

Imam Reza is believed by Shia Muslims as the 8th successor of Prophet Mohammad and passed away in Iran’s Toos (Today Mashhad).

In the holy shrine of this passionate Imam, there is a large and worthy museum in addition to a rich library.
