The recommendation was made by Hoj. Seyyed Mohammad Zolfaghari, deputy international affairs of AQR Scientific and Cultural Organization during his visit to the foundation who raised the importance of doing research on family of Prophet Mohammad (pbuh). “AQR’s research works of this kind are highly effective as society maintains a great trust in this holy organization”.
Pointing to the ‘holy shrines project’ as another notable activity under the foundation, he said: “An important jurisprudential issue in international arena is jurisprudence of proximity on which only two works have been ever written. Jurisprudence of protocols is another serious topic which must receive attention as well”.
AQR’s successful experiences in managing coronavirus was introduced by Zolfaghari as another area worth researching for publication.
Stating that any project has two scientific and operational wings, the official said: “In terms of legacy, which includes not only Iran but also other countries such as African states, more research should be conducted as there are many valuable legacies there”.
Elsewhere, he called for translation of Razavi calendar as a “very good idea” for the use of other Muslims in India, Pakistan, and Bangladesh.
Also managing director of the foundation, Hoj. Seyyed Mahmoud Marvian Hosseini, said IRF had produced around four thousand research works in its 36 years of history. “The center has nine departments for Quran studies, research on traditions, theology and Islamic thought, Razavi culture and conduct, Jurisprudence and principles, Islamic ethics, descendants of Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) and Islamic honors”.
Referring to presence of many salient figures of the Islamic world at the foundation, he said: “The international system has to be watched constantly. It is also of high importance to do the same in cultural areas and to form units for international studies in different departments”.
