Fattah attends Kahrizak Laylat-al Qadr mourning ceremony, vows support for charity

By Mahdieh Qazvinian

The third night of Layali al-Qadr (the Nights of Destiny) mourning ceremonies was held in Kahrizak Charity Foundation in Tehran on Sunday in the presence of Parviz Fattah, head of Iran’s Mostazafan Foundation, and a number of officials.  

Fattah lauded the Kahrizak staff for doing the great job, saying they will be appreciated.

Located in southern suburbs of Tehran, Kahrizak Charity Sanatorium provides accommodation and health services for its clients, mostly elderly and MS (multiple sclerosis) patients, and also those with disabilities whose families can’t take care of them.

The sanatorium is a sacred place and on this holy night, said Fattah, adding, “Hopefully our prayers will be answered.”

“I strongly believe in these elderly and disabled people because they have pure hearts and when they pray and place the Holy Qur’an on their heads, we are also next to them, hoping that God may listen to our voices,” Fattah said.

“I deeply feel for the staff of the sanatorium and do my best to help their livelihoods,” he added.

These people deserve to be appreciated, he said, adding that such opportunities should be seized.

“I am proud to have provided tap water for the sanatorium when I was the energy minister,” Fattah expressed his happiness.

No exact date is provided for the night of destiny, but all Islamic references are unanimous that the Holy Qur’an was revealed to Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) on one of three different dates: The 19th, the 21st, or the 23rd nights of the holy month of Ramadan.

The 21st of Ramadan also coincides with the martyrdom anniversary of Imam Ali (PBUH), the first Imam of Shia Muslims.
