Astan Quds Razavi has approved admission of 183 new servants for Imam Reza (AS) holy shrine for the welfare of the pilgrims and visitors.
Hoj. Ahmad Marvi, the chief custodian of Astan Quds Razavi, stating the above in a ceremony, called for respecting the pilgrims and guests of Imam Reza (AS).
“Anyone entering the holy shrine is a ‘pilgrim’ who must receive respect and good service,” he said, adding: “On the Day of Judgment, humans will be held accountable for their social status, responsibilities, knowledge, possessions and whatever God the Almighty had given them in this world. The higher the position, possessions and knowledge, the heavier will be their responsibility.”
He added: “The large family serving in the holy shrine consists of a huge number of elites, scientists and scholars in various disciplines; thus, I urge all of them to provide us with their comments for better management of the holy shrine and Astan Quds Razavi and alleviating problems.”
The ceremony was kicked off with AQR deputy custodian Mustafa Khaksar Qahrudi, presenting a report on yearlong services rendered by the servants on special religious occasions, especially during the last ten days of Safar. “As part of the ceremony, 183 people were admitted to serve in the holy shrine.”
