Imam Reza (PBUH) shrine in Iran, source of abundance

The late founder of the Islamic republic once in a historic address said that it was source of pride that the holy shrine of Imam Reza (PBUH) is the shelter of Iranians

 He described the holy shrine in the holy city of Mashhad as source of abundance. The contemporary Muslim world leader went onto say that the victory of Islamic revolution also owes to people’s devotion towards Imam Reza and other infallibles from the Holy Prophet's Household. 

Imam Khomeini frequently through his messages said that the Islamic Revolution has had deep roots in Imam Hussain (PBUH) historical uprising of Ashura, and stressed on following footsteps of the holy prophet and his infallible successors, including Imam Reza (PBUH). 

Imam Reza, one of the infallible successors of the holy prophet of Islam was decorated with numerous divine-oriented moral attributes and was well-known and popular among people due to his knowledge and wisdom.

The infallible Imam was divinely entitled "al-Reza" which means that Allah Almighty and His holy messenger were deeply pleased with him.

Imam Reza used to stress the need for implementation of justice and resorting to truthfulness and sincerity as a basic pillar of human societies.

Due to infallible Imam’s divine-oriented qualities and growing popularity among people, Ma'mun saw Imam as an obstacle to Abbasid’s brutal rule.  Holy Imam was poisoned by Mamun and attained martyrdom on the last day of the month of Safar 203 A.H./ 818 A.D, and was buried in Sanabad area of Toos region.

After the burial of Imam Reza, the region  was  soon transformed into a metropolis city which is now known as the holy city of Mashhad. The shrine of Imam Reza (peace be upon him) in Mashhad is also one of the most extensively visited pilgrimage centers in the world.
