No one before and after the Prophet Muhammad (ﷺ) has seen a person like him

Anas ibn Malik (radiyallahu anhu) said: “The Messenger of Allah (sallallahu alayhi wa sallam) was not too tall, but not too low either. His skin was not too snow-white, but not too dark. The hair was neither curly nor straight. When he was forty years old, Allah sent him as a prophet. After that, he lived in Mecca for thirteen years and in Medina for ten years. When he was sixty-three years old, and the number of gray hair in his beard did not exceed twenty hairs, he died according to the will of Allah. "

Follow Sunna: Rules of healthy sleep from the Prophet Muhammad (ﷺ)

Sleep, which takes one third of our life, is one of the most mysterious and even to the end of the uncharted phenomena of human life. After all, it is from its quality that the state of a person in the bright time of day depends. Therefore, the Messenger of Allah (peace and blessing of Allah) was very preferable to the question of sleeping and wakefulness, leaving us a legacy the rules of the right sleep in the form of its innermost Sunna.

Iranian medicine. With its magnificent natural landscape and richest historical heritage, Iran does not lose its attractive force for tourists. And thanks to recent reforms in the health care system, the country has become an attractive direction for medical tourism, especially from the neighboring Arab countries and the Persian Gulf countries. Today, the major cities of Iran do not have a shortage of well-equipped clinics and highly qualified specialists who provide high-quality medical services at affordable prices in the direction of cardiovascular diseases, orthopedics, obstetrics and gynecology, plastic surgery, oncology, physiotherapy, eco and many others. Iranian doctors also carry out very successful research activities, and thanks to their successes in this direction, Iran is considered one of the most advanced centers in the region. The most sought-after services are cardiology, surgery, cosmetic surgery, reproductive medicine and organ transplantation. Preference for treatment in Iran is given for the following reasons: <

- quality of medical services and affordable prices for treatment in Iran and drug preparations - compared with other countries of the Middle East and Central Asia; - access to the latest medical procedures, methods and equipment, as well as to qualified doctors and medical staff; - Iran's linguistic and cultural similarity with neighboring countries in which the health system is not quite effective.

Rest in Iran. Another important reason for the attractiveness of this harsh, but hospitable, contradictory, but an attractive country is its natural, historical and cultural wealth. Among the famous historical ruins it is worth highlighting Persepolis, the capital of the Empire of Ahemenides, or the excavation of one of the first (10,000 years BC) of the human settlements in Iran, ancient Mamanda. Tourists also have the opportunity to visit the interior desert areas with a jeep, camel, or combined tour. The most stunning natural attractions are Ali Sadr Cave with its delightful stalactites, Golestan nature reserve, Shevi and Bishe waterfalls, Tabriz mountains and Gilan forests. The country does not lack museums either, the most notable of which are the National Treasury, the National Museum of Iran, the Carpet Museum in Tehran, the Ganj Ali Khan Hammam Museum and the Golestan palace complex.

Practical information. To visit the country, Russian citizens need a visa. No special vaccinations are required. There is a wide range of inexpensive means of transport for getting around the country - planes, trains, buses and taxis. Tickets can be booked online from the hotel. Working days are from Saturday to Thursday, Friday is a day off. The national cuisine has a lot in common with the Central Asian, with a predominance of rice. Lamb is the most consumed type of meat, vegetables in various types and fermented milk products are also common, as well as the abundant use of spices. It is recommended to drink only bottled water; from alcohol, you can order a glass of wine for a meal in Tehran, posing as a tourist from Russia, since alcohol is prohibited in this country. Smoking in public places is also prohibited. This can only be done in a few specially designated places. In Iran, one should strictly follow their legally enshrined dress code and not take photographs of government agencies and military facilities, and local residents - only with their permission. Beaches in Iran are separate for men and women.

Iran is one of the leaders in attracting patients from abroad in Western Asia. Medical tourism is supported at the state level, so more and more people come here for treatment.

Strong Treatment Areas in Iran

The main advantage of Iranian medicine is the doctors themselves. A strong medical education has led to the fact that local doctors are in demand not only at home, but also abroad. For example, one of the most successful neurosurgeons in the world, Majim Samii, who runs a clinic in Germany, was born in Tehran.

It is thanks to outstanding doctors among medical tourists in Iran that such directions as:

  • cardiology and vascular surgery,
  • orthopedics,
  • plastic surgery,
  • infertility treatment and IVF.

In addition, Iran occupies leading places in its region in terms of the level of development of neurobiology and ophthalmology. The pharmaceutical market is growing rapidly, offering patients affordable and quality generics. This is directly related to the second advantage of treatment in Iran - prices.

Treatment cost

Healthcare in Iran is in many ways comparable to developed countries, but prices are low here:

  • hip replacement - from $ 6,000 (for comparison, in Korea - from $ 13,000-14,000);
  • knee replacement - from $ 5,000;
  • IVF - $ 2750;
  • a month rehabilitation course after a stroke - from $ 1800;
  • rhinoplasty - from $ 2300;
  • blepharoplasty - from $ 800.

As of 2019, Iran is visited by 8-9 million tourists from abroad. Tourism in Iran is varied: from hiking and skiing in the Alborz and Zagros mountains to a beach holiday on the shores of the Persian Gulf and the Caspian Sea. The Iranian government has made a concerted effort to attract tourists to various destinations in the country and arrivals have increased in recent years.



Kish Island alone attracted about 1 million visitors in 2012-2012, most of them Iranian, but the area also attracts many non-Iranian Muslims who like to spend their beach holidays on Islamic-style beaches where men and women use separate beaches.

Prior to the 1979 Iranian Revolution, tourism was characterized by the fact that Iran received a significant number of visitors to admire its diverse attractions, including cultural splendor and diverse and beautiful landscape, suitable for many events.

After the revolution, most foreign visitors to Iran were religious pilgrims and businessmen. There are many Shia shrines in Iran, the two main ones being the shrine of Imam Reza in Mashhad and the shrine of Fatim al-Masum in Qom. Millions of pilgrims from Iran and other Shiite countries visit these holy places every year. Official figures do not distinguish between those who travel to Iran on business and those who come for pleasure, and they also include many Iranians from the diaspora returning to visit their families in Iran or making pilgrimages to Shia sacred sites near Mashhad, Qom and other places.

Tourism declined sharply during the Iran-Iraq War of the 1980s.

Domestic tourism in Iran was one of the largest in the world as of 2010.

In 2013, the number of foreign tourists in Iran reached 4.76 million, contributing over US $ 2 billion to the national economy. The strong devaluation of the Iranian rial since early 2012 has been a positive factor for tourism in Iran. More than five million tourists visited Iran in the 2014-15 fiscal year, up four percent from last year. According to a report released by the World Travel and Tourism Council in 2015, the size of its tourism industry is estimated to have the potential to create jobs for 1,285,500 people and grow 4.1% per year to 1,913,000 jobs in 2025. Based on the annual report. In 2014, travel and tourism directly supported 413,000 jobs (1.8% of total employment). It was expected to grow by 4.4% in 2015 and grow by 4.3% per year to 656,000 jobs (2.2% of total employment) by 2025.

In October 2018, Ali Asghar Munesan, head of Iran's Cultural Heritage, Crafts and Tourism Organization (ICHTO), announced that the number of tourists visiting Iran in the first six months of the Iranian year (starting March 21) has increased by 51 percent. compared to the same period in 2017.

Foreign visitors

World Tourism Organization data on the origin of visitors to Iran for 2008 shows that attracting visitors from the Islamic and wider Asian worlds must start from a low base. About three quarters of those who entered Iran in 1999 came from Europe. According to the New York Times, unlike most Americans who stopped visiting Iran after the revolution, European tourists continued to visit the country in similar numbers after the revolution. This was mainly because the revolution was anti-American, but not so much anti-European.

Citizens of the US, UK and Canada are required by law to have a guide with them at all times.
