(AhlulBayt News Agency) - Grand Shia source of emulation Ayatollah Makarem Shirazi hailed the good measures taken in Iran in Quranic fields, especially in Quran interpretation.
Speaking in a meeting with activists in the field of Quran interpretation, the senior cleric said the great scope of Quranic activities in the country disproves the claims by the enemies of Ahl-ul-Bayt (AS) that Shia Muslims pay little attention to the Book of God.
Referring to a sermon from Nahj-ol-Balagha that says "One who has the Quran has everything and one who does not have the Quran has nothing,” Ayatollah Makarem Shirazi said there have been very good steps taken to promote the Quran and Quran interpretation in the country since the victory of the Islamic Revolution.
He further called on Quran interpreters to pay attention to both ordinal and thematic interpretation of the Holy Book.
The meeting was held in Mashhad on Monday at the end of a Quran interpretation plan that was underway since the holy month of Ramadan (June).
