The eighth Imam of the Shiites was born in Medina and was given the title of Alem-e Al-Muhammad by the scholars of the world because of his great knowledge and knowledge. The Imam attended the debates with the scholars of his time and spent hours discussing science and existence with him. It is said that after the death of his father, he emigrated from Medina to Merv and agreed to Mamun's proposal for a crown prince, but this crown prince did not remain very stable.

Holy shrine of Fatima Masoomeh
But right on the west side of the shrine of Imam Reza, if we move towards the sun, the golden dome shines right in Qom. One year after Imam Reza's migration to Merv, he decided to go to Khorasan and died on the way due to illness. Historians estimate his age to be between eighteen and twenty-one years.
His body was buried in a place called Bagh-e Babalan, and the first shrine of his holy shrine was built on his tomb by Shah Tahmasb I. Next to the tomb of Hazrat Masoumeh, the beautiful mosque of Jamkaran is a quiet and safe place for prayer and supplication
Why Shah Cheragh
The third arm of this turquoise triangle belongs to Shah Cheragh, the brother of Imam Reza (AS) named Ahmad Ibn Musa, nicknamed "Shah Cheragh", a magnificent shrine built during the Persian Atabakan period in the sixth century AH. Hejaz kills Khorasan and the usual fear of meeting the two brothers leads to his martyrdom.
After his martyrdom, the body of the Imam was left under the rubble of the house where he had taken refuge. It is said that every midnight there was a bright light at that point until dawn. This news reached Azd al-Dawla when he arrived. He went there and told the old woman who had heard the news that whenever you sow the light woke me up, the old woman shouted "Shah Cheragh" as soon as she saw the light in the darkness , and since then they have given Hazrat Ahmad Ibn Musa the title of Shah Cheragh. Then, by the order of Azd al-Dowleh, a building was built in the same place as the tomb of Shah Cheragh, which was completed over the centuries.
The shrine is not far from the tourist and commercial centers of Shiraz. The presence of beautiful gardens of Eram and Narenjestan Garden makes the space around the shrine fragrant with spring orange and despair. It has become a tourist destination in the world. Presence in such spaces that are full of the energies of the universe and communication with the Creator and away from any religious bigotry, along with pure thoughts, the desire for peace and friendship of nations, which has been the motto of all great men, polishes the minds of today's people. It is with this infinite energy that the universe begins to travel, and this is where the journey begins.
