Russian Muslim woman: 'Imam Reza (AS) will be our voucher'

 

The grand prize winner of the “Family of 2017,” a Muslim woman from Russia, has for the first time attended the holy shrine of Imam Reza (عليه السلام), stating that pilgrimage to the shrine ha been her biggest wish. 

Ahlul Bayt News Agency (ABNA): The grand prize winner of the “Family of 2017,” a Muslim woman from Russia, has for the first time attended the holy shrine of Imam Reza (عليه السلام), stating that pilgrimage to the shrine ha been her biggest wish. 

The instructor and reciter of the Qur'an, Gohar Mehr Aliyev, from the Siberian Surgut City says that she always has wished to be in the shoes of the people who could be close to Imam Reza in his presence without intermediaries. 

“Today, if we feel more spiritual, this is just for the sake of Imam Reza, and I have always wished that my children would be fond of the Infallible Imams (عليه السلام) and especially the compassionate Imam, because I believe the most reliable and the closest way to pray is to visit the Infallibles,” she said. 

The Russian woman, who has brought up sixth Christian orphan sons, and then converted them to Islam, stated that apart from her two children, God gave her six other sons, all of whom after some time became Shia voluntarily and willfully and they accepted Islam through studying and research. 

She stressed that their conversion was only God’s will, noting “God is forgiving and merciful, and I’m sure Imam Reza (عليه السلام) will accept us, and will accept our pilgrimage, and we will leave Mashhad hands full,” the Quranic activist added. 

In the end, the AQR Non-Iranian Pilgrim Affairs was in charge of hosting the Russian Muslim family, involving cultural programs and gifts, including a volume of the Holy Qur'an, several cultural products and books in Russian.

A Russian merchant has converted to Islam at a ceremony in Deputy Office for Non-Iranian Pilgrims' Affairs of Astan Quds Razavi in Mashhad. 

Ahlul Bayt News Agency (ABNA): A Russian merchant has converted to Islam at a ceremony in Deputy Office for Non-Iranian Pilgrims' Affairs of Astan Quds Razavi in Mashhad. 

The ceremony took place at the threshold of the birth anniversary of Imam Reza (عليه السلام) and concurrent with the eighth day of Karamat ten-day celebrations. 

Speaking at the ceremony, Seyyed Javad Hasheminejad, the director of the deputy office, stated that after the Islamic Revolution and upon the collapse of the Soviet Union, Iran boosted relations with Russia and other CIS republics. 

"We have observed an increase in the number and population of Muslims in Russia and some CIS republics during the past decades." 

According to him, Islamic values such as equality, brotherhood, peace and friendship have so far attracted a great number of non-Muslims in Russia and also across the world. 

Asking the non-Muslims to study more on the religion of Islam and to contemplate before conversion to Islam, Hasheminejad expressed Astan Quds Razavi's readiness to boost the awareness of non-Muslims on Islam, further noting that, "Islam calls upon humans to read books." 

The newly converted Russian Muslim, who preferred to remain anonymous due to his business activities in Western countries, said he has studyed about Islam for five years. 

"Thanks to my studies, I found Shia Islam the best religion to convert to." 

He touched upon Islamophobia in the West, saying European states have pictured a negative image of Islam to mar the face of Islam and Muslims. 

The newly converted Russian, who has changed his name to Ali, stated that he converted to Islam for fear of the Doomsday and the life after death. 

"I ask the almighty God to have His mercy upon me." 

In his second visit to Mashhad, Ali said he has experienced "nothing other than grace and glory at this holy shrine." 

The ceremony awarded the Russian Muslim merchant a certificate of conversion to Islam, a copy of the Holy Qur'an in English and several other books.
