Purpose: To study documents about the financial assistance of Astan Quds Razavi to Iranian pilgrims during 1847 (the starting of Naser al-Din Shah’s rReign) to 1882.
Methodology: Historical method is employed along with content analysis. The sources consisted of 517 papers relating to pilgrims' financial requests.
Findings: Most of the financial assistance was paid by cash and chiefly from defined endowments of Astan Quds. There is a direct correlation between type of request and the pilgrims' social class.
