According to the reports issued from Astan Quds Razavi website, this group including the head of Sri Lanka Hashemi Institute and a number of authorities of the institute meanwhile attending in the Razavi holy shrine and doing pilgrimage enjoyed the special programs provided by the management of Non-Iranian Pilgrims.
“This is my first attendance in this holy shrine; I was really amazed to see such a huge crowd of lovers from different parts of the world here offering their devotion and respect to the presence of his holiness”, Sharif Abd al-Navaz said in the margin of his visit of the complex of the Razavi holy shrine.
“Pilgrimage and being in this holy shrine gives us such tranquility that we forget all the troubles and suffering of the trip”, he said.
Describing the pilgrimage of Imam Reza (A.S.) as the best gift granted to him by God, Abd al-Navaz added, “Pilgrimage is paying attention to divine masters and taking them as mediators for more proximity to God; it is renewing covenant with the Infallible Imams (A.S.) and establishing deep spiritual connection with them. Pilgrimage really gives one tranquility and serenity and is the best gift to pilgrims.”
Noting that Islam is the religion of peace and the propaganda of the enemies for introducing Islam as terrorism is a part of their plots, head of Hashemi Institute said, “We hope the friendly relations between Iran and Sri Lanka are reinforced more than before.”
Referring to the old civilization of several millennia of Iran and Sri Lanka, he stressed on the friendship of people of the two countries and added, “Unity of Muslims against the world imperialism for avoiding Sunni and Shi’a disunion is a fact that should be attended.”
Referring to the wonderful effect of the Islamic revolution on other political movements of the current age, he remarked, “Islamic revolution of Iran and the contemporary Islamic movements seek for elimination of tyranny and corruption and implementation of Islamic rules in the society through denial of the powers and reliance on the divine power and mass.”
This group of pilgrims evaluated the performance and the programs of Astan Quds Razavi for non-Iranian pilgrims admirable and appreciated them.
At the end, cultural products were dedicated to them by the management of Non-Iranian Pilgrims.
