AQR expands national and global Quranic knowledge in the name of Imam Reza (AS)
Astan Quds Razavi’s Holy Quran Center has been established with the aim of providing general and specialized educational services and promoting the Holy Quran knowledge in national and international levels.

Training 530 memorizers of the whole Quran, and supporting Quranic groups are two most important activities of the center which have received a lot of feedback so far.
According to Hoj. Massoud Mirian, the director of the Holy Quran Center, holding Quranic circles, festivals and exhibitions, publishing and donating Quran, supporting general and specialized Quran teaching classes, training Quran memorizers, holding Quran recitation training courses for preschool children entitled “Mahd al-Reza (AS),” Quran teaching program for teenagers and adults and holding Quran teacher training courses in various fields are part of the activities of the center.
The center has established offices across the country to expand Quranic activities and to educate a generation with awareness on pure Islam.
He further said that supporting traditional classrooms of the Quran has been realized by donating 18,000 copies of Quran to teachers and training 400 instructors.
The production of a special app for traditional classrooms is another achievement of the center, so that participants can record reports and pictures of their meetings through this app. The center has also trained over 2,000 teachers for Mahd al-Reza program.
The national Quranic project entitled “I love the Quran” is one of the central programs of this center that will be held nationwide in cooperation with the holy shrines of the country.
Moreover, round-the-clock Quran memorization training course will be held this summer and according to the plans, the center anticipates supporting 5000 students this year, he noted.
“In 2020, due to the outbreak of the coronavirus pandemic, we did not hold exhibitions, but various Quranic campaigns and competitions were held virtually during this difficult era,” he said.
Mirian added that holding Razavi recitation chair on social networks and the Quran Center virtual channel have received good welcome so much so that on some days, the live programs have attracted some 5000 to 7000 participants.
According to him, the cyberspace audience of Quranic programs during the coronavirus pandemic has tripled.
