Hazrat Abu Talib (a.s.) had great contribution in supporting Holy Prophet (p.b.u.h)

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 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 Mahdi Kharsan”.


Referring to Hazrat Abu Talib (a.s.), Hojat al-Islam “Mohammad A’rafi” a researcher in religious studies as the fifth speaker at the meeting stated, “We are indebted to Hazrat Abu Talib (a.s.), for all the values and achievements we have. But unfortunately, with the instincts and propaganda of the enemies, the most terrible slander, which is Sherk (polytheism) and lack of faith, has been leveled at Hazrat Abu Talib (a.s.). This slander was initially by the enemies, but then some Muslims, influenced by the propaganda of the enemies, accompanied in this regard.”


“It is difficult to talk about the holy position of Hazrat Abu Talib (a.s.). Hazrat Abu Talib (a.s.) had a great contribution in supporting Islam and the Holy Prophet (p.b.u.h). He was the friend and companion of the Prophet in many parts of his life. It is our duty to defend Hazrat Abu Talib. A number of scholars started working in this direction and wrote works. For example, “Zaini Dahlan”, one of the Sunni scholars, wrote a book in defense of Hazrat Abu Talib (a.s.), the great of Bani Hashim, entitled “Asna al-Matalib fi Najat Abi Talib”,” he continued.


“I wrote an article in defense of Hazrat Abu Talib (a.s.) with the help of Professor Sayed Monzar Hakim at the Al-Zoria Al-Nabawiya Research Institute. This article includes two translations into modern Persian prose of the book “Asni al-Matalib fi Najat Abi Talib” by Zaini Dahlan and the introduction of the late Saqaf, one of Shafi’i scholars, on this book. The feature of this article is a bold study of the poems of Hazrat Abu Talib (a.s.), especially Lamia ode, which is in defense of Islam and the Prophet (p.b.u.h), and also deals with the reasons for the faith of Hazrat Abu Talib (a.s.) in terms of two denominations, Shiite and Sunni,” A’rafi added.


“Allame Kharsan worked hard and the result of these efforts can be seen in the valuable book “Muntaqala al-Talibiya”,” he noted.

Shojai Rad’s report on unique book “Montaqela al-Talebia”

Shojai Rad’s report on unique book “Montaqela al-Talebia”

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 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 Mahdi Kharsan”.


As the fourth speaker of the session, Hojat al-Islam Amrullah Shojai Rad the researcher of Zoria al-Nabawia Research institute explained about the book “Montaqela al-Talebia”.


“This precious book is one of the basic books of genealogy,” he continued, “Hazrat Abu Talib (AS) was a believer in Quraysh who, like the companions of the cave, concealed his faith. In difficult circumstances, before the conquest of Mecca, and early in the call of Islam, which was a fundamental danger, he came to the aid of Islam and brought his family along the way. Hazrat Abu Talib (a.s.) and his family are among the role models and they had a great role in supporting the Prophet (p.b.u.h). Hazrat Fatemeh bint Asad (a.s.), the wife of Hazrat Abu Talib (a.s.), was like a mother to the Prophet (p.b.u.h) and the Prophet cried when this noble lady was buried. Jafar, the son of Hazrat Abu Talib (a.s.), was also a great martyr.”


“Hazrat Abu Talib (a.s.) was one of the figures who took important actions in difficult conditions and the role of self-sacrifice of him was extended to his children. Few families like the family of Abu Talib (a.s.) have sacrificed so many martyrs in the uprising of Karbala, the battle of Fakh, and the prison of Hashemia. The Talebian were in conflict with the governments of the time, and this led to their widespread emigration to all parts of the world and the transmission of Islam and Shiism to various countries around the world. The great migrations of Talebi Sadat caused them to make history and civilization. They traveled to various countries, including Iran, the Indian subcontinent, Turkey, Central Asia and Levant, Egypt, Morocco, Andalusia and France. The book “Montaqela al-Talebia” has monitored this migration movement,” stated Shojai Rad, Recognizing Hazrat Abu Talib (a.s.) as a model for resistance.


“There are about a thousand books on genealogy. But the difference between the book "“Montaqela al-Talebia” and other books of genealogy is that in the books of genealogy, Sadat’s genealogies are usually mentioned and no attention is paid to their place of residence. However, the structure of the book “Montaqela al-Talebia” is based on place and mentions the names of different regions and places to which Talebi Sadat migrated. The book “Montaqela al-Talebia” combines the science of geography with the knowledge of genealogy, and the book is a kind of historical-geographical atlas of genealogy, and is very distinguished in this respect. After “Abu Ismail Ibrahim Ibn Nasser Ibn Tabataba” in writing “Montaqela al-Talebia”, no one did anything in this regard. His work was an initiative. “Abu Ismail Ibrahim Ibn Nasser Ibn Tabataba” is one of Hassani Sadat, whose lineage reaches Imam Hassan (a.s.) through 14 intermediaries. Not much information is available about this poet and genealogist. He was a contemporary of Sheikh Tusi. “Abu Ismail Ibrahim bin Nasser bin Tabataba” lived in Isfahan and he and his family were among Sadat Talebi. He was a Zaidi Shiite. At that time, many Shiites in Iran were Zaidis,” he added.


“Allameh Kharsan’s knowledge position is clear from his works. He did well in every field of research he entered. He is one of the great scholars of Najaf seminary, successful scholars and prominent genealogists who is skilled in conducting research work and has written 12 works in the field of genealogy,” Shojai Rad stated, referring to the characteristics of Allameh Kharsan.


“Mohammad Reza Rezai” has translated the book “Montaqela al-Talebia” well. Research in this book should be based on older versions. It also seems necessary to write a new version of “Montaqela al-Talebia”. This book was written in the fifth century AH, and now, in the 15th century AH, we need Sadat’s geographical atlas to know where they are located. Research on Sadat should also be based on ancient sources, including the role of Talebi Sadat in various countries, including Egypt, the Indian subcontinent, and Iran,” he mentioned.



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.)

Closing Ceremony of Children, Adolescents Festival held at Intl. Conference of Hazrat Abu Talib (a.s.)

Closing Ceremony of Children, Adolescents Festival held at Intl. Conference of Hazrat Abu Talib (a.s.)

The closing ceremony of the Children and Adolescents Festival of the International Conference of “Hazrat Abu Talib (a.s.), Supporter of the Great Prophet (p.b.u.h)” was held in Qom Sunday Morning 7 March, 2021.


The festival was held in Kowsar Conference Hall of the Central Propagation Office of Qom province with the performance of Hojat al-Islam Ghazali aka Uncle Ghazali of the Children and with participation of a group of students in a happy environment and with various and attractive programs such as holding a competition, performing an anthem by Rayeh Al-Huda group and playing a clip.


“Hazrat Abu Talib (a.s.) was the custodian and protector of the Prophet Muhammad (p.b.u.h). The fact that we have little information about Hazrat Abu Talib is an injustice against Imam Ali (a.s.),” stated Hojat al-Islam Neyshabouri, the speaker of this festival.


“He was born 35 years before the birth of the Prophet (p.b.u.h) and died on the 28th of Rajab in the tenth year of the Be’that. The Muslims called the year in which Hazrat Khadijeh (a.s.) and Hazrat Abu Talib (a.s.) passed away “Aam al-Hozn” (the year of Grief),” he said, in describing the life of Hazrat Abu Talib (a.s.).


“Hazrat Abu Talib (a.s.) had a high status. He held two positions: “Refadah” meaning hospitality of the pilgrims of the House of God (Kaaba) and “Saqayah” meaning watering the pilgrims. Abu Talib (a.s.) was a man of kindness and generosity; Although he was poor, his table was open for the people of Mecca and he received them,” stated the religious researcher, regarding the social status of the Prophet’s uncle.


“Abu Talib (a.s.) took custody of the Prophet (p.b.u.h) when he was eight years old. He loved the Prophet (p.b.u.h) more than all his children. He provided the best food for him and spread the bed of the Prophet (p.b.u.h) next to his own bed,” he added.


“According to a hadith from Imam Sadiq (a.s.), ‘The example of Abu Talib is the example of the Companions of the Cave (Seven Sleepers). They kept their faith secret and revealed Sherk (polytheism), and as a result, God rewarded them twice’,” Neyshabouri continued, saying that Abu Talib (a.s.) was a supporter of the Prophet (p.b.u.h).


“Abu Talib (a.s.) took the Prophet (p.b.u.h) on a business trip to Levant at the age of twelve. In the Levant “Bahira”, a Christian monk saw the signs of prophethood in him and kissed the seal of prophecy that was between the shoulders of the Prophet (p.b.u.h) and advised Abu Talib (a.s.) to be very careful of the Prophet so that the Jews would not reach and harm him. After this case, Abu Talib never takes his nephew on trips,” he also reminded.


“In a hadith the Prophet (p.b.u.h) said that I would not have succeeded without Abu Talib (a.s.). Therefore, after the death of Abu Talib (a.s.), Gabriel ordered the Prophet (p.b.u.h) to emigrate from Mecca to Medina because Mecca was no longer safe for Muslims,” stated the religious expert, regarding the role of Abu Talib in helping the Prophet (p.b.u.h) and establishing the religion of Islam.


“People’s personalities and beliefs can be understood from their works and writings. From the poems of Abu Talib (a.s.), his faith is clear. He says in the Lamie ode, ‘Don’t you know that the Prophet (p.b.u.h) is the messenger of God and his name is mentioned in the heavenly books’,” he concluded in the end, on the doubt about the faith of Abu Talib (a.s.).


Following in the meeting, the executive director of the Children and Adolescents Festival of the International Conference of Hazrat Abu Talib (a.s.), Mr. “Vazin Afzali”, presented a short report on the process of holding the festival.


“The purpose of holding the festival is to acquaint children and adolescents with the character of Hazrat Abu Talib (a.s.). From the beginning of announcing the call for the festival in the category of children and adolescents in the fields of painting, table solving, poetry reading, film and photography and clip making, 804 works were submitted to the festival secretariat,” he said.


Awarding prizes to the winners of the contest from Qom was the final part of the ceremony, and prizes of the winners from other cities will be sent to their addresses.
