AhlulBayt News Agency (ABNA): On the occasion of the opening of the Wiki Torath and Shia Data projects, Grand Ayatollah "Nasser Makarem Shirazi" issued a message as follows:
In the name of Allah, the Beneficent, the Merciful
First of all, we thank God Almighty for making the efforts of planners, nobles, experts and those involved come to fruition and it enabled the use of two useful programs regarding the publication of the teachings of the AhluBayt (a.s.) and familiarization with those interested in Islamic heritage and spiritual teachings.
Collecting and promoting and facilitating access to the teachings of the Shia school and the heritage of Muslim scholars along with the collection of information and the classification of available resources and other useful efforts that have been carried out in these two programs, cause the means and progress in research in Islamic heritage and books of Shia scholars and the correct and comprehensive introduction of the Imamiyyah Shia doctrine to all truth-seekers.
In today's world, where the competition is for the speed, accuracy and accuracy of information and the enemies are trying to distort the face of the right path and attract the hearts and minds of the people to the false path, we must seriously try to strengthen our explanation in the virtual space.
I would like to express my thanks and appreciation to all the officials, as well as researchers and respected programmers who have played a role in these two extensive projects, and I wish them success.
Qom, Nasser Makarem Shirazi
