The aim of this visit is firstly to perform the rituals of the Zyarat and to have the honour of being inside the holy shrines of our Imams (peace be upon them) who were buried in the sacred land of Iraq, and to encourage our Quran readers and memorizers as this Zyarat gives them a spiritual factor to continue their Quranic march, and also to see the Quranic projects adopted by the Al-Abbas's (p) Holy Shrine to benefit from it in the future, in order to work on a joint Quranic protocol action, because the Iraqi people are generous, loves reading the Holy Quran and honours its readers and memorizers. In our turn, we thank the officials and thos in charge in the Al-Abbas's (p) holy shrine for their considerable efforts in inviting readers and memorizers from the disadvantaged countries, such as Afghanistan."
