Abolhassan Kharaghani, moselium plack

Abolhassan Kharaghani had this message at the entrance of his house "
Whoever enters my place, feed them without asking about their faiths. Because if they were favor by God almighty who saw them worthy of the gift of life, then they are certainly worthy of being fed at the house of Aboul Hassan". At the house of Aboul Hassan,none is distinguished by their color of skin or their race.
Aboul Hassan Kharaghani is an enlightened learned man of the 11 century A.D. Iran. To him every sect,religion & faith has an equal value. He respects all faiths & religions on an equal base.
He puts helping the needy & service to a fellow human before worshiping God, who isn't really in need of our worship. The foundation of Aboul
Hassan's thinking is service to human beings.
The book Noorul-Uloom (The light of Sciences) is dedicated to Shaikh Abul Hassan Kharaqani. It is believed to have been written by his disciples (murids) after his death. Its single manuscript copy is currently held in the British Museum.
