AhlulBayt News Agency (ABNA): 41st pre-conference of the International Conference “Hazrat Abu Talib, Supporter of the Great Prophet (p.b.u.h)” was held on Saturday morning March 6, 2021, virtually and in person in Qom.
The session was organized by Zorria al-Nabawia Research Institute and Research Institute of on Proximity of The World Forum for Proximity of Islamic Schools of Thought and was held in the form of Webinar “The role of Hazrat Abu Talib (a.s.) and the Talebian from the point of view of Allameh Sayed Mohammad Mehdi Kharsan”.
“Verses 54 of Surah Nisa, 269 of Surah Al-Baqarah, 24 of Surah Ibrahim and 81 of Surah Al-Isra, are interpretations of the verses of Surah Kawthar. According to verse 54 of Surah Nisa “أَمْ يَحْسُدُونَ النَّاسَ عَلَىٰ مَا آتَاهُمُ اللَّهُ مِنْ فَضْلِهِ فَقَدْ آتَيْنَا آلَ إِبْرَاهِيمَ الْكِتَابَ وَالْحِكْمَةَ وَآتَيْنَاهُمْ مُلْكًا عَظِيمًا” (Or are they jealous of mankind because of that which Allah of His bounty hath bestowed upon them? For We bestowed upon the house of Abraham (of old) the Scripture and wisdom, and We bestowed on them a mighty kingdom), Prophet Ibrahim and his family are envied by others,” said the chairman of the Zorria al-Nabawia Research Institute, as the first speaker of the meeting, referring to the verses of the Holy Quran.
“The abundant good that is mentioned in verse 269 of Surah Al-Baqarah “يُؤْتِي الْحِكْمَةَ مَنْ يَشَاءُ وَمَنْ يُؤْتَ الْحِكْمَةَ فَقَدْ أُوتِيَ خَيْرًا كَثِيرًا وَمَا يَذَّكَّرُ إِلَّا أُولُو الْأَلْبَابِ” (He giveth wisdom unto whom He will, and he unto whom wisdom is given, he truly hath received abundant good. But none remember except men of understanding) is Kowsar. Kowsar means an effective and stable manpower that can defeat the opponents of the Prophet. Hazrat Abu Talib (a.s.), his descendants, Imam Ali (a.s.), and Hazrat Fatima (a.s.) are the link between Ibrahim Khalilullah and Hazrat Muhammad (p.b.u.h) who are the source of influence and change in the world of humanity,” Sayed Monzar Hakim continued.
“Hazrat Abu Talib (a.s.) has been systematically oppressed from the time of the Be’that, and he must be released from oppression,” he stated, considering the expressing the influential role of Hazrat Abu Talib (a.s.) as the duty of Muslims, especially the followers of the school of AhlulBayt (a.s.) (Shiites).
“Two influential conferences are ahead. The first is the conference of Hazrat Abu Talib (a.s.). A few years ago, the AhlulBayt (a.s.) World Assembly along with other important institutions, began preparations for the conference. This conference will be held in person and webinar from Tuesday, March 9 to Thursday, March 11, 2021,” Hakim added.
“The other conference is the “Conference of Umana al-Rosol” (Trustees of the Prophets). This conference is of high importance, and part of the strategy of the Islamic system (of Iran) and follows many soft measures,” said the chairman of Zorria al-Nabawia Research Institute on the second conference.
“After the fall of Saddam, the colonial servants who prevented progress in Iraq planned to create a rift between the seminaries of Qom and Najaf. They tried to prevent the movement towards Islamic civilization by hitting the flow of knowledge production in these seminaries. This conference is dedicated to the description of Allameh Sayed Mohammad Mahdi Kharsan. Allama Kharsan is a pro proximity (of Islamic denominations) figure who wrote the book of the Encyclopedia of Abdullah Ibn Abbas in 21 volumes,” explained the prof. of higher levels of Islamic Seminary in Qom.
“Given that Allameh Kharsan has researched a book on Talebian emigration, the way was paved for this meeting. The Talebian (House of Abu Talib) are the fruit of influential human beings throughout history, including the Shiite Imams (from Imam Ali) to Hazrat Mahdi (a.s.), i.e., the sons of Hazrat Abu Talib (a.s.). Zorria al-Nabawia Research Institute considers itself responsible for doing software and hardware work to introduce Hazrat Abu Talib (a.s.) and his children. The institute carries out these measures in spite of the lack or weakness of material resources, with the cooperation of affiliated institutions and with the presence of human resources as the highest capital,” he continued.
Hazrat Abu Talib (a.s.) has an international and unifying position and we should follow his example of stability, resistance, management and universality. The “Conference of Hazrat Abu Talib (a.s.)” will be held for three days with the presence of Iranian and non-Iranian academic scholars, Shiites, Sunnis and even Christians to explain the position of Hazrat Abu Talib (a.s.).
It should be mentioned that by the initiation of the AhlulBayt (a.s.) World Assembly, and support and cooperation of the similar institutions, including, “Imam Hossein (a.s.) Holy Shrine”, “Hazrat Aboutaleb Research and Publishing Institute”, “The World Forum for Proximity of Islamic Schools of Thought”, “Islamic Sciences and Culture Academy of Islamic Propagation Office”, “Al-Mustafa International University”, “Hawza Language teaching center”, “International University of AhlulBayt (a.s.)”, “Mirath-e Nabowat Cultural Institute”, “Jamiat al-Zahra Seminary University”, “Zorria al-Nabawia Research Center”, “Qasem ibn al-Hassan (a.s.) Religious-Cultural Institute”, and “Abna al-Rasoul Cultural and Artistic Institute”; international conference “Hazrat Abu Talib (a.s.), Supporter of the Great Prophet (p.b.u.h)” will be held on Rajab 25, 26 and 27, 1442 (Mrch 9, 10 and 11, 2021) on the anniversary of the death of Abu Talib (a.s.).
