  • The best place to visit, the Religious Holy Shrine which is located in Mashhad, Iran. Can't express the peace what we get in this place during the Prayers. I recommend everybody to visit this Shrine by Prayers. Peoples wishes has also been accepted by Prayers. And even though they provide good services.
  • Before ever coming to Imam Reza (as), people told me, "You must come and see in person." Trully, I did not know what to think and what could be so great there. Until I arrived, and left, and my prayers have been answered in a much greater extent than I ever imagined. Indeed, it is impossible to describe it in words. Imam Reza (as) never turns his face away from the believer who beseeches God. There is nothing too difficult for him to achieve. He gives freely the best of everything, much better than anyone can ask for. Nobody ever returns empty handed!!!
