Mahmoud Shahat Anwar will attend Quran recitation sessions in a number of cities across Iran during his stay in the country.
The Quranic sessions will be held to commemorate members of the Iranian Quranic delegation to Hajj who died in a crush of pilgrims in Mina, Saudi Arabia, on September 24.
Hassan Danesh, Amin Bavi, Mohsen Hajihassani Kargar, Foad Mash’ali and Saeed Saeedizadeh, members of the delegation, were among some 7500 Hajj pilgrims- including at least 464 Iranians- who died in the tragic Mina crush while performing the Hajj rituals.
Anwar will be in the central province of Yazd on Wednesday, Thursday and Friday, to recite verses from the Holy Quran in several Quranic sessions planned in the province to commemorate Hassan Danesh.
He will then go to the northeastern province of Khorasan Razavi to attend commemoration ceremonies for Mohsen Hajihassani Kargar.
On November 3, he will travel to the southwestern city of Abadan where a memorial service is going to be held for Amin Bavi.
