to Razavi Culture News Agency, pointing to narratives regarding Imam Reza's
holy presence, Hojat al-Islam Rezaii noted, "Imam Reza's shrine is a door
among paradise doors in narratives."
added, "Furthermore, the heaven is definite while the hell is forbidden to
whomever goes on a pilgrimage of Imam Reza's (A.S.) holy shrine; of course,
provided the pilgrimage is a spiritual one."
stated, "Prophet Muhammad (P.B.U.H.) mentioned the phrase "Part of
Me" for two people; one is Lady Fatimah (A.S.) where he says:
"Fatimah is part of me;" and the other one is Imam Reza (A.S.) where
he says: "Soon, part of me is to be buried in the land of Khorasan."
Khorasan's head of Islamic Propagation Office stated, "The virtuous are
twofold sources of inspiration, one of which is in the quotations of Imams; in
a quotation by Imam Reza (A.S.), we have: "Provided people realize the
beauty of our words, they definitely follow us; hence these words ought to be
recognized and taught to others."
al-Islam Rezaii continued, "The other source of inspiration by Imams
(A.S.) is following their conduct in practice, about which we have many
quotations to follow Imam Reza (A.S.) in practice.”
partly to Imam Reza's (A.S.) conduct, he noted, "He would never stretch
his legs before others, never spit in the street, never interrupt others' words
and would keep his head down while eating in order to avoid making an eye
contact with the one in front of him."
to the national Razavi's poetry Festival of Javanehain the current year, he
noted, "We have to implement this in the practical life of families and in
the society so that we benefit from its privileges."
on us as revivers of Imams' (A.S.) practical conduct, especially that of Imam Reza
(A.S.), he said, "The duty is felt more by the ones who are neighboring
Imam Reza (A.S.)."
needs to be mentioned that the National Razavi's Poetry Festival of Javaneha is
to be held in August of the current year in Southern Khorasan province along
with Imam Reza's 15th International Festival.
