Hoj. Mahdavi, head of AQR’s Scientific and Cultural Organization said the scientific characteristics the Prophet’s (pbuh) family have been manifested in Imam Reza (AS) in a special way and this means that this feature is for Imam Reza (AS) only as Prophet (pbuh) of Islam and other Imams (AS) are endowed with divinely inspired science. “Every Imam (AS) was given different nicknames all emphasizing a great and specific characteristic for him”. 
Referring to different situations and contexts in which Imam Reza’s (AS) science and wisdom could lead the society and guide people, Mahdavi introduced Imam’s (AS) graciousness  and commitment on moral standards as one of the best areas of Hazrat Reza’s (AS) influence in the society. “Imam Reza (AS) often valued moral issues more than scientific ones”.
