AVA- In a decree released on Thursday, Imam Khamenei said Hojjatoleslam Sheikh Ahmad Marvi would replace Hojjatolesm Seyyed Ebrahim Raeisi as head of the Astan Quds Razavi.
The Leader offered the new custodian a list of guidelines for the post, calling on the cleric to do his utmost to serve the pilgrims of Imam Reza and provide assistance to the needy.
Before being appointed as the custodian of Astan Quds Razavi, Marvi was in charge of a department at the Leader's Office responsible for contacts and communications with religious seminaries.
The Astan Quds Razavi is officially a charitable foundation, which is autonomous in the set-up and budget but functions within the framework of general government policies.
