The text of the statement is as follows:
In the Name of God, the Compassionate, the Merciful
Praise belongs to God, for the true knowledge of Himself He has given to us and the thanksgiving He has inspired us to offer Him.
We do thank God for giving the servants of holy shrines another success to serve eternal devotees and lovers of the Infallible Household of the Prophet (pbuh) following a harsh and grave period of closures.
In accordance with the recent decision made by the National Anti-Corona Headquarters, the holy shrines will be reopened on Monday May 25, in the window time given by the national headquarters.
In order to maintain health of the pilgrims and visitors of the holy shrines, all dear pilgrims are demanded to observe full cooperation with the servants of the holy shrines while visiting sacred premises. They are also asked to observe ordered procedures and health protocols including having face mask and gloves. Pilgrims are further demanded to pay enough attention to keeping safe social distance (2m), having personal praying rug and books, Quran and personal veil for the women.
God willing, we hope doing pilgrimage and enjoying divine supplications of the Infallible Imams (AS) at country’s holy shrines can be continued by the endeavor of the servants and cooperation of respectable pilgrims in implementation of procedures and observance of disciplines. It is also hoped to hold thanksgiving ceremony for full reopening of the holy shrines soon after eradication of the pandemic.
