The shrine of Ali ibn Musa ar-Ridha (God’s greetings be upon him) is the place for the tawaf of divine angels and the place for the presence of divine blessings. It is the center of dhikr, attention and monotheism. In that place, pure and enthusiastic hearts and those who have entrusted their hearts to this pure household speak to Allah the Exalted with their enthusiastic hearts. I hope that all of us and all Muslims all over the world benefit from the blessings of the attention of this great personality and I hope that it will strengthen the relationships of Muslims with one another.
