IRF works address cultural and intellectual needs of holy shrine pilgrims
Meeting cultural and intellectual needs of Imam Reza (AS) holy shrine pilgrims is one of the goals set by Astan Quds Razavi’s Islamic Research Foundation (IRF), the most important of which is to address life, personal and social conduct, traditions and virtues of Imam Reza (AS).

This task has been achieved so far by publishing 250 works with the theme of Razavi culture. These works have been translated and presented to the audience in 11 different languages, including Persian, Arabic, English, Azeri, Urdu, etc., on topics such as life, education, the holy shrine, Astan Quds Razavi and pilgrimage.
In this regard, Morteza Enferadi, the official in charge of IRF’s Razavi Culture and Tradition Group says, “This accountability covers several areas, the first and most important of which deals with the life, personal and social conduct of Imam Reza, and the next stage is the knowledge of that Imam and pilgrimage which have been severely under attack by enemies.”
“In addition to works in Persian, many books have been published in different languages focusing on the Razavi conduct, including: Rites of Pilgrimage of Imam Reza (AS); Imam Reza (AS), the Eighth Imam of Shia Muslims; Imam Reza (AS), the Imam of Compassion and knowledgeability; Outstanding Characteristics of Holy Mashhad; and the Glossary and Holy Shrine of Imam Reza (AS) and so on,” he noted.
According to Enferadi, so far 40 works on Razavi culture and conduct produced by the Islamic Research Foundation have won top ranks in domestic and international scientific and research festivals.
Astan Quds Razavi is the body in charge of Imam Reza (AS) holy shrine in Mashhad, northeast Iran.
