Central IRAN - QOM

QOM (QUM) is located in central IRAN, about 100 km south of TEHRAN, near Dasht-e-KAVIR, a large salt desert to the east.

There are tombs of many kings from the Safavid Dynasty. The city became a safe haven for Shia Muslims who were opposed to the rule of the Ummayid and Abbassid caliphs.

Second in historical significance only to the arrival of Shiite Islam and its acceptance by the inhabitants of Qom was the arrival of Hazrat Massoumeh, the sister of Imam Reza, the eighth Imam of the Household of the Prophet Mohammed.

The name of her eminence was Fatima and her title was Massoumeh, which had been granted to her by her brother, Imam Reza. The major industrial activities in the textile sector are related to the production of carpets.
