Al-Mustafa Center for Islamic Researches

Having realized the need and momentum of ideological researches in our present age the office of His Eminence, Grand Ayatollah Sistan - may Allah protect him - established Al-Mustafa Center for Islamic Researches. The center's main aim is to do ideological researches as well as reply to doubts raised here and there by hostile elements about Shia, the religion of Ahlalbayt (a.s.). In pursuit of this very aim, the center is working actively to make a huge ideological collection which would consist of books and scripts of ancient and contemporary writers. The center is also preparing detailed series of important ideological topics which would be used as references by researchers. The series which have been presented in a comparative style are called "Islamic beliefs". So far only four volumes of them have been published.
The first volume explains 'fitrat' (man's God gifted nature) and cognition.
The second volume includes topics such as monotheism, polytheism, tashbih (similarization) and tajsim (belief in physical existence of God).
The third volume consists of topics related to intercession in different religious and Islamic sects.
The fourth volume consists of the remaining issues of intercession, tavassol (resorting) and 'istishfa' (seeking of a cure).
The fifth volume consists of issues related to infallibility of the Prophets and Imams - peace be upon them.
The center has published a book named "Ghadir Verses". In this book the following verses have been explained in detail:
Verse: O Apostle! Deliver what has been revealed to you from your Lord; and if you do it not, then you have not delivered His message, and Allah will protect you from the people; surely Allah will not guide the unbelieving people. (Maidah: 67)
And verse: "This day have I perfected for you your religion and completed My favor on you and choosen for you Islam as a religion. (Maidah: 3)
And verse: One demanding, demanded the chastisement which must befall (70:1).
