Imam Reza shrine getting prepared to host pilgrims on Eid al-Ghadir
Imam Reza holy shrine in the holy city of Mashhad is getting well-prepared to host millions of pilgrims on Eid al-Ghadir, a joyful holiday in which Prophet Mohammad (pbuh) appointed Imam Ali (AS) as his successor.

To host visitors and pilgrims on the auspicious occasion, servants of the holy shrine are busy with providing facilities needed for the feast; strict observance of health protocols has been an inseparable part of their activities.
All courtyards of Imam Reza holy shrine, particularly Holy Prophet Grand Courtyard, are decorated with colorful lamp chains and green flags. Also, beautiful notes of congratulations have added to the joyful atmosphere of the shrine. Special attention has also been paid to flower arrangements so that pleasant aroma of the flowers can be felt in almost every corner of the holy complex.
Surfaces and floors of the holy shrine have all been washed with disinfectants and they are now ready for hosting Eid al-Ghadir pilgrims who come to the shrine for participation in the ceremonies. 
Like other celebrations, the Office for Foreign Pilgrims’ Affairs of the holy shrine has its special non-Persian ceremonies for foreign guests of the complex.
Also, with respect to the spread of the new version of coronavirus, all necessary anticipations with respect to the carpets, disinfectants, and glasses have been made so that pilgrims can have a safe pilgrimage in Imam Reza holy shrine. 
It is worth mentioning that every year in the lunar month of Dhul Hajjah, Muslims celebrate Eid al-Ghadir, an occasion marking the day when Prophet Mohammad (AS), upon God’s order, appointed Ali ibn Abi Talib (AS), the first Imam of Shia Muslims, as his successor and the leader of Muslim ummah some 14 centuries ago.
