Directing manger of Islamic Research foundation of Astan Quds Razavi welcomed the members of the group and remarked, “Imam Reza (A.S.) states: blessing of God embraces one who revives our command. This is possible through instructing our knowledge to people. If people become aware of beauties of our words, they will follow us.”
“This tradition can be considered as a proof for researchers and writers prompting them to recognize the knowledge of the household of the Apostle of God (S.A.W.) and to teach them to the youth correctly so that they could be favored by the Infallible Imams (A.S.) and Imam Reza (A.S.) in particular”, Hujjat al-Islam Mahdi Shariat Tabar said.
Pointing to the instructions of Islam and Imam Reza (A.S.) in particular, he said. “In the school of the Household of the Prophet (S.A.W.), kindness and affection consists half of the human wisdom. One of Imam Reza’s (A.S.) instructions is showing humility toward people and especially the impoverished. In his conduct, whenever a napery of food was spread, his holiness seated his servants beside himself. He believed that our God is the same for all as well as our parents; so there should not be any difference among people.”
“Aiding the society and people especially cultural aids and material charities is always highlighted in the conduct of Imam Reza (A.S.). He was pioneer of charity and donation. He had benevolence in words and actions and preserved human greatness”, he added.
“Today, enemies of Islam led by the U.S. intend to distort the face of Islam and show it violent through creating terroristic flows like ISIS. “Hence Muslim and Shi’ite thinkers should try to foil the plots of the arrogance by science and action and to present the real face of Islam to the world”, directing manger of Islamic Research foundation of Astan Quds Razavi said.
Presenting a report of activities of Islamic Research foundation of Astan Quds Razavi, he reiterated, “This center was established in 1363/1984 aimed at introducing the knowledge of Muhammadian Islam and the culture of Imam Reza (A.S.).”
“The center has published so far a total of 3000 volumes of books in a circulation of thirteen million. The works have been produced in different languages including Arabic, Urdu, Persian, English, etc.”, he continued.
It is notable that the group requested that all published books in Urdu as well as other works of the Islamic Research foundation of Astan Quds Razavi be translated in Gujarati as well and be available to Ja’farieh Academy.
