Informants / Khorasan Razavi One of the Khorasani researchers explained that some of the mirrors behind the holy Razavi shrine are outdated or hidden, and some mirrors behind the Razavi shrine and the scene in the late period.

“Every year, with the arrival of Nowruz, the wave of traditions and mirrors beats on the brink of oblivion,” Reza Soleimanuri, speaking with informants, said about holding Nowruz rituals at the holy shrine of Razavi. The celebration that takes place only once a year is very important for Iranians. Some of these practices are rooted in community religions, some are geographical in origin, and the communities have many origins.

He continued: The ancient people of Mashhad had a special subculture of Narcissus, most of which is associated with the holy shrine of Rajavi. Previously, in the hours towards the end of the year, there were old customs, which unfortunately are now very faded and are performed only in the old families of Mashhad. According to one of them, the original shrines, like all the inhabitants of the Iranian plateau, have a special significance for the Hovsin Table, but this table is for children and women during Nowruz and is known mostly for the year’s deliverance. The place for the men of the family is nothing but the courtyard and court of Imam Reza (peace be upon him).

“According to this ancient tradition, the men of the old families of Mashhad, even the sons of the Scandinavian family, leave their homes for a few hours at the beginning of the year,” continued the head of the Chaharbagh Khorasan Tourism Development Association. He served the courtyard of the eighth Imam (peace be upon him) in that year for distribution.

In recent years, with the removal of the basins surrounding the revolutionary justice, it goes without saying that the basin of Freedom Square is the only place where the feast is received from Imam Reza (peace be upon him).

An important celebration is the playing of the Song of the Year by the Hazarti Gallery, to announce the good news of the year.

In this way, people with hearing problems are informed of the year by turning the lights on and off. But today, the lights around the shrine are off for a moment.

And he continued: The moment of the passing of the year had a special glory for the night, so that after the deep darkness and at the same time as the beginning of the new year, the light rose. Of course, this procedure was not carried out in the years that coincide with Muharram and the travel of Nowruz or the year of delivery with a disaster in the Ahl al-Bayt (peace be upon them). Nowadays, this ritual is performed in a limited manner on the balcony overlooking the sacred temple.
