TEHRAN (IQNA) – Prominent Egyptian Quran reciter Mahmoud Shahat Anwar met with the family of Iranian Qari Mohsen Hajihassani Kargar, who was killed in a recent crush of Hajj pilgrims in Mina, Saudi Arabia.

During a visit to the Hajihassani Kargar family’s home in the holy city of Mashhad on Monday, Anwar expressed condolences to the family.

He prayed God to bestow His mercy and blessings to the late Iranian Qari.

Mahmoud Shahat Anwar has been in Iran to attend Quran recitation sessions in a number of cities across the country.

The Quranic sessions are 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.
