Holy Quran’ at the holy shrine of Ima Reza (AS) in Mashhad, northeast Iran, on Saturday.

Imam Reza Shrine’s Deputy Office for Islamic Ideology Dissemination held the event in Imam Khomeini Portico, on the occasion of Eid al-Maba’ath (marking the appointment of Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) as the last messenger of God).

It attracted a great number of Quran activists from the city.

“Eid al-Maba’ath is the day the Holy Quran was revealed to Prophet (PBUH) by the angel Gabriel, and God’s best gift to mankind, and the best reminder of the Holy Quran’s significance as a beam of light to guide mankind to perfection,” said Hojat-ol-Islam Hossein Shariatinejad, deputy of Islamic Ideology Dissemination.

He added that enemies had always tried to dim the Quranic light in a bid to fight Islam and the Prophet’s (PBUH) lofty position.

“The enemies do not even refrain from insulting the Holy Quran in order to deviate people from the path of guidance. Therefore, it is incumbent upon Muslims to renew our allegiance with the Quran,” he stated.

Pointing to the Quranic capacity of the city of Mashhad, Shariatinejad noted, “There are 30,000

Quranic activists in Mashhad active in different categories (memorization, recitation, etc.), who have converged here today”.

The event commenced with excerpts of the Leader’s Quranic speeches, and the Custodian of shrine, Hojat-ol-Islam Marvi’s remarks on the Quranic values.
