With AQR’s structure finalized, time is ripe for nonstop work
Astan Quds Razavi is now ready for a jihadi way of performance since its organizational structure has been finalized.

Announcing the above in a ceremony to install new managers at Velayat hall of Imam Reza (AS) holy shrine, Hoj. Ahmad Marvi, the chief custodian of Astan Quds Razavi attributed the success to round-the-clock efforts and endeavors, expert-level sessions and lengthy studies. “We have no claim the result is a hundred percent free from fault, but we claim we have done our best and enjoyed expert views to lay the structural foundations of Astan Quds Razavi,” he said.
“There may be two approaches toward Astan Quds Razavi. A first approach may see this establishment independent of Islamic Revolution and the Islamic system with a lot of endowed properties and a duty to only take care of related affairs; while a second approach sees AQR as an inseparable part of the Islamic Revolution, and in a sense, the birthplace of Islamic Revolution,” he stated.  
Reiterating the common belief on the second approach, he insisted on playing a more active role in line with fulfilling Leader’s recommendations. “We are responsible toward the past, present and future of this revolution and we cannot be indifferent at all.”
He pointed to the Leader’s comments on creation of modern Islamic civilization, saying: “The Islamic Revolution has put behind the stages of birth, growth and stability within the past four decades and suffered many hardships. Today, we must do whatever we can to realize the Leader’s theory of modern Islamic civilization.”
Turning to economic activities of Astan Quds Razavi, Marvi said: “At AQR, we have no intension of raising income through all possible ways. We prioritize Islamic values wherever we make investment for more income. Our income comes from clean sources only.” It is, he continued, a major component of Islamic civilization to make money through clean sources. 
Elsewhere, AQR chief custodian insisted on creating a jihadi way of management in the holy shrine establishments, saying: “During the days the holy shrine was closed due to the coronavirus pandemic, many good steps were taken that can serve as an example of jihadi way of performance which calls for round-the-clock work.”
According to him, the closed-door-shrine gave the AQR team of managers an opportunity to discover and overcome faults and problems.
Elsewhere, Marvi underscored important responsibilities of Deputy Office for Publicity, stating that it is burdened with the heavy responsibility of promoting the cultural and spiritual awareness of the pilgrims. 
“Creating sustainable sources of income, realizing requirements of resistance economy, and a leap in production must be observed in all divisions of Astan Quds Razavi,” he said, adding: “Any economic move must be based on the Leader’s emphasis on resistance economy and production leap.”
Stressing that poverty must not be an obstacle to pilgrims of Imam Reza (AS) holy shrine, Hoj. Marvi said it is within the authority of Karamat Razavi Foundation to take care of the underprivileged pilgrims. “The foundation is responsible for identifying public capacities in line with eradicating poverty in the society in addition to making preparations for the pilgrimage of underprivileged people to Imam Reza (AS) holy shrine.”
AQR chief custodian placed special emphasis on frugality in expenses and a reduction in costs at Astan Quds Razavi complex, saying it must be a serious concern of the managers. “Moreover, the managers and directors under AQR should stay loyal to policies and programs and do their best in safeguarding endowed properties and acting upon the deeds.”
Attaching special importance on financial and administrative discipline, Hoj. Marvi said every single move in Astan Quds Razavi is under inspection and no division is exempted from auditing.
On the appointments, he said the new managers were mostly from the Astan Quds Razavi, selected based on their adherence to religious values, their technical knowledge and revolutionary beliefs.
