The delegation from Tatarstan, which consists of the mufti of the republic Kamil hazrat Samigullin, continued its official visit to the city Mashhad of the Republic of Iran. Within the framework of the working visit the residents of Tatarstan visited the tourist pearl of Iran - the imam Reza's Mausoleum, the historical library, the tomb of Al-Reza (the eighth shiite imam) and the mosque.

The greatest impression on delegates was made by the largest handwritten Qur'an in the world - the Baysangur's Qur'an, which was written in the times of Az-Zakhir Beibars al-Bundukdari - the mamluks' sultan of Egypt and Syria (1260-1277) from the dynasty of the Bakhrites. The Qur'an currently has only 60 pages. In addition to that, the guests were shown the grave of the great Muslim scholar imam Al-Ghazali, which was found in the Iranian city of Tus in the province of Khorasan in 2009. Currently, the excavation of the scientist's qrave is under way. Ghazali - an Islamic lawyer, philosopher, psychologist and mystic of Persian origin, is one of the most outstanding scientists in the history of sunni Islam.

The guests also visited the historical library, which is located in the architectural complex of the imam Reza's Mausoleum in the city of Mashkhad. The library stores about 90,000 manuscripts. Delegates were also shown several manuscripts of the scholar of the Volga Bulgaria Burkhanutdin Bulgari - books on the tafsir of the Qur'an and logic, as well as Ibn Fadlan's notes on "Akhbarul buldan" on geography.
