  • Comprehensive report of Secretary of “International Conference of Hazrat Abu Talib (a.s.); Supporter of the Great Prophet (p.b.u.h)” on Quran TV IRIB

    Comprehensive report of Secretary of “International Conference of Hazrat Abu Talib (a.s.); Supporter of the Great Prophet (p.b.u.h)” on Quran TV IRIB

    On Saturday, April 3, 2021, by attending the "Mesbah" program of IRIB Quran TV, Deputy Secretary-General and Deputy of Cultural Affairs of the AhlulBayt (a.s.) World Assembly, Hojat al-Islam “Ahmad Ahmadi Tabar” explained the activities of the conference of Hazrat Abu Talib (AS); The supporter of the Prophet (p.b.u.h).


    At the beginning of the program, congratulating the viewers on the New Persian Year, Hojat al-Islam Ahmad Ahmadi Tabar wished a blessed year for all and prayed for solving the problems of human society and the Covid-19 disaster, which has gripped the world.




    At the beginning of his speech, referring to the history, structure, Supreme Council, General Assembly, and activities of the AhlulBayt (a.s.) World Assembly, he introduced the dissemination of the teachings of the AhlulBayt (a.s.), the intellectual and cultural promotion of the followers of the AhlulBayt (a.s.), and the effort to solve the problems of the Shiites of the world through international organizations as the missions of the Assembly.


    According to him, translating and publishing more than 2,000 books in 60 living languages of the world, establishing ABNA News Agency and its activities in 25 languages to provide media support to the followers of AhlulBayt (a.s.) worldwide, holding scientific conferences, and various other cultural activities, are among the actions of the AhlulBayt (a.s.) World Assembly to achieve the goals.


    Explanation on the activities of the International Conference of Hazrat Abu Talib (a.s.); Supporter of the Great Prophet (p.b.u.h)


    “When the Umayyads came to power, they did not allow this figure to be properly introduced. After the Umayyads, the Abbasids, due to a series of hostilities, prevented the proper introduction of this character,” said the secretary of the “International Conference of Hazrat Abu Talib (a.s.); supporter of the Great Prophet (p.b.u.h)” in describing the activities of the conference, emphasizing that Hazrat Abu Talib is one of the most oppressed figures in the history of Islam.


    “As a result of the propaganda of these enemies, in the late second Hijri century and early third Hijri century onwards, nonsense about Abu Talib (a.s.) was raised. While Hazrat Abu Talib is a great figure and in many ways can be a role model for human society,” Ahmadi Tabar clarified.


    “Part of the Jewish people had many conspiracies to prevent the birth of the prophet of the End of Time. Hashem, the ancestor of the Prophet (p.b.u.h), was poisoned in Palestine and died in Gaza, and his grave is in Gaza. They (Jews) desperately wanted the Prophet (p.b.u.h) not to be born. When the Prophet was born, all the attention of Hazrat Abd al-Muttalib, his grandfather, was on the Prophet Muhammad (p.b.u.h),” stated the Deputy of Cultural Affairs of the AhlulBayt (a.s.) World Assembly on the conspiracies of the Jewish people against the Prophet (p.b.u.h) and the role of Abd al-Muttalib (a.s.) and Abu Talib (a.s.) in protecting him.


    “At the time of his death, Hazrat Abd al-Muttalib (a.s.) had a detailed will and chose Abu Talib as his successor. While Hazrat Abu Talib (p.b.u.h) was not his eldest son and he did not have wealth and abundance. But at the same time, he was wise, manager, mastermind, and planner. Two-thirds of the will of Hazrat Abd al-Muttalib (a.s.) is related to the Holy Prophet (p.b.u.h). Because the conspiracies of the Jews against the Prophet (p.b.u.h) will be thwarted, and it will not work. Therefore, Hazrat Abu Talib did not go on business trips for about three to four years until famine and problems arose. From then on, he takes the Prophet (p.b.u.h) with him on business trips,” he continued.


    “When the Holy Prophet (p.b.u.h) was chosen as the Prophet (by God), we see all of his moments and the moments of Islam with Hazrat Abu Talib (a.s.). Hazrat Abu Talib (a.s.) manages all cases in the best way and supports the Holy Prophet (p.b.u.h) and overcomes hardships and is seriously present everywhere. He has unique relationships, management, and diplomacy that can be seen as a model in this regard,” the Deputy Secretary-General and Deputy of Cultural Affairs of the AhlulBayt (a.s.) World Assembly stated regarding the support of Hazrat Abu Talib (a.s.) for the Prophet (p.b.u.h).


    “When the Muslims were under pressure and hardship, Hazrat Abu Talib, with his connections the king of Abyssinia, sent a group of Muslims there under the leadership of his son, Ja’far ibn Abi Talib. In all the conspiracies of the enemies of Islam, and in all currents, Abu Talib is the model of resistance and the anonymous commander of Islam. In Islam, there are many anonymous soldiers. But there is no anonymous commander like Hazrat Abu Talib; The one who managed all the issues and political, economic, and social constraints that the Moshrekin (polytheists) brought to the Holy Prophet (p.b.u.h) and the Muslims in the best way, and defended the Holy Prophet (p.b.u.h) comprehensively. In all these respects, Hazrat Abu Talib (p.b.u.h) is a role model,” he continued.




    “When Abu Talib (p.b.u.h) dies, the Prophet (p.b.u.h) is told “leave Mecca!” meaning “Mecca is no longer your place because you no longer have a supporter”,” Ahmadi Tabar added, saying that Sheikh Al-Bat’ha is one of the figures whom the history has told all of his events.


    “The International Conference of Hazrat Abu Talib (a.s.) was held to introduce the various dimensions of Hazrat Abu Talib. One of the conference committees was the “Committee of Resistance”. In this committee, all resistance groups participated and discussed the dimensions of the resistance of Hazrat Abu Talib. In this conference, other dimensions of Hazrat Abu Talib (a.s.) such as literary dimensions and his poems were also examined. Infallible Imams (a.s.) advise us to read the poems of Abu Talib, learn and teach them to our children. All the high knowledge can be seen in the poems of Hazrat Abu Talib (a.s.),” he said, explaining the activities of the International Conference of Hazrat Abu Talib (a.s.).


    “When the preparations for holding the conference of Abu Talib (a.s.) began and it was decided to hold this conference, with the view that it will be international and the organizer will be the AhlulBayt (a.s.) World Assembly, we went to all Muslims (from different denominations) so that we could include everyone in the conference. Shiites attended the conference with many articles. We went to different religions and sects of Sunnis, Sufis, and Salafis. Major Sunni scholars from Al-Azhar University in Egypt attended the conference. One of the elders of the Sunnis of Syria, Sheikh “Mahmoud Akam”, the Mufti of Aleppo, in an article, rejected the theory that Abu Talib did not believe (in Islam) and was a Moshrek (polytheist) and such slanders. The translation of the title of his article is: “O you who believe! Abu Talib was a believer, and whoever doubts this, it is his fault”,” added the Deputy Secretary-General and Deputy of Cultural Affairs of the AhlulBayt (a.s.) World Assembly.


    “In addition to the Twelver Shiites and Sunnis, followers of other Shiite sects – including the Zaydis, Ismailis (Bohras and Aga Khanis), and Alawites – also attended the conference and submitted good articles. Even the Druze scholars, who often do not get involved in these issues, wrote articles. The Ibadis of Oman were also present at the conference. Everyone presented glorious works about Hazrat Abu Talib. The conference articles are collected in approximately 10 books and the books and articles of the conference have a total of about 30 volumes. We unveiled some of the works at the ending ceremony of the conference and some work needs to be done about other parts,” stated the professor of the seminary and the university.


    “We felt that in order for these issues to last, we also had to turn to art. Therefore, artistic activities were also held on the sidelines of the conference. The result of it was very glorious and good works. For example, prominent calligraphers gathered in the shrine of Hazrat Masoumeh (a.s.) in a ceremony and created beautiful calligraphic paintings about Hazrat Abu Talib (a.s.). Or a poetry reading program about Hazrat Abu Talib called “Mysterious Rite - Commemoration of Hazrat Abu Talib” was held in which poets from Iran and different countries recited their poems in this ceremony. The Children and Adolescents Festival of the International Conference of Hazrat Abu Talib (a.s.) was also held and more than 1000 works were sent to the Secretariat. An art and media festival about Hazrat Abu Talib (a.s.) was held and more than 120 works came to this festival,” said Ahmadi Tabar, regarding the activities carried out on the sidelines of the International Conference of Hazrat Abu Talib (a.s.).


    At the end of the “Mesbah” program, the host asked Mr. Ahmadi Tabar, “How can people, experts, and scholars get access to the outcome of your conference?”




    “Hazrat Abu Talib Conference has a website in which all the works are uploaded. In addition, a series of works related to Abu Talib have been done in the Wiki Shia, which is available in this encyclopedia. There is also a digital library where conference proceedings will be uploaded,” the secretariat of the conference replied.


    “A good package has been prepared about the works of the conference of Hazrat Abu Talib (a.s.), which has been provided to some members of the media. As they announced that they have information about Hazrat Abu Talib (a.s.) to be published for 10 years,” he emphasized.


    “There is a discussion about the “Sahaba al-Abrar” (Good Companions) that should be followed up. For example, Hazrat Hamza Sayed al-Shuhada (a.s.) is one of the oppressed figures of history. Or the character of Hazrat Khadija (a.s.) has not been examined as she deserves as “Umm Al-Mu’minin” (mother of the believers). In the future, the likes of these oppressed figures will be addressed in the framework of the “Sahaba al-Abrar”,” Ahmadi Tabar concluded in the end, about the future conferences of the AhlulBayt (a.s.) World Assembly.

    The closing ceremony of the “International Conference of Hazrat Abu Talib (a.s.); Supporter of the Great Prophet (p.b.u.h)” was held on Thursday evening, March 11, 2021, at the Imam Khomeini School in Qom. On this day, after three years of activity, this important scientific and cultural event ends its work in a three-day conference, by presenting dozens of books and articles, translating dozens of valuable works, and holding 42 scientific pre-sessions, several art events, and cultural festivals, and holding sessions for five specialized committees.


    The main speaker at the closing ceremony of the conference, which was held at the Imam Khomeini Higher Education Complex in Qom, was Ayatollah Reza Ramazani, Secretary-General of the AhlulBayt (a.s.) World Assembly. In his speech, in addition to referring to the Prophet’s Be’that, he explained the effects of holding the conference of Hazrat Abu Talib (a.s.).


    Be’that of the Prophet (p.b.u.h) and the revelatory view of man

    Regarding the blessings of the Be’that, the Secretary-General of the AhlulBayt (a.s.) World Assembly said, “One of the blessings and results of the Prophet’s Be’that was to bring people from material life to rational life and to introduce man based on revelation. It also caused God to become man’s teacher and man to learn from God’s teachings.”


    “Be’that is for the liberation of human beings from the shackles that they have created for themselves. The most important result of the Be’that is for the humanity to be on the path of honor and for them to put themselves on the path of honor by striving and increasing their faith and righteous deeds,” he emphasized.


    “God Almighty has introduced himself as “Akram” (the most munificent or benevolent) in the Quran. Angels also have the status of, and the Book of God (the Quran) also has the status of “Keramat” (munificence). His prophet is also a Karim (munificent) prophet. Therefore, certainly, if human beings benefit from the teachings of “Akram” (the most munificent or benevolent) God, they will achieve relative munificence with the Quran,” added Ayatollah Ramazani.


    “The difference between the virtues and the dignity is that dignity is realized in dealing with others. But virtues depend on how a person’s soul is trained. If a person’s spirit becomes virtuous, his soul also develops. That is, the human soul expands,” continued the Islamic thinker.


    Several years of effort for the conference of Hazrat Abu Talib (a.s.)

    “The idea of holding the Aboutaleb International Conference was presented in March 2017. Then meetings and related activities began. The conference was scheduled to be held in person in February and March 2020. But it did not happen due to the outbreak of Covid-19,” said Ayatollah Reza Ramazani in the closing ceremony of the “the International Conference of Hazrat Abu Talib (a.s.); Supporter of the Holy Prophet (p.b.u.h)”, appreciating the authors of the articles and books, the Deputy of Cultural Affairs of the Assembly, the organizers of the conference and the special care of the Sources of the Emulation to the conference.


    “Despite some problems, it was decided to hold this international conference this year, both in-person and online, and no further delay was appropriate,” Ayatollah Ramazani continued.


    “In this regard, glorious works were produced by the authors. Also, a large number of scientific pre-conferences were held and good discussions were held in them. The meetings of the specialized committees were also active in the past few days and their results will be used in the future,” he stated, appreciating Hojat al-Islam Sabahi Kashani, the head of the research institute of Hazrat Abu Talib (a.s.).


    Objectives of the conference of Hazrat Abu Talib (a.s.)

    Regarding the objectives of the International Conference of Hazrat Abu Talib (a.s.), the Secretary-General of the AhlulBayt (a.s.) World Assembly, said, “One of the aims of the Assembly is to introduce figures such as Hazrat Abu Talib (a.s.). Therefore, one of the objectives of holding a conference about Hazrat Abu Talib (a.s.) was to perform as such, it means introducing the figures of the Islamic world, and redefining and reviewing these important figures.”


    “When we study the history of Islam, we see that Abu Talib (a.s.) played the most prominent role in the Be’that of the Prophet (p.b.u.h). Of course, people like Hazrat Khadija (a.s.), the first martyrs of Islam, namely Yasir, Lady Somayeh, and others have all been influential. But Hazrat Abu Talib (a.s.) has had the most prominent impact on the success of the Be’that,” Ayatollah Ramazani continued.


    “People should know that Hazrat Abu Talib (a.s.) was one of the honors of Islam, and he should be known comprehensively,” added the Secretary-General of the AhlulBayt (a.s.) World Assembly, emphasizing that Muslims should know the great figures of their religion.


    “Abu Talib (a.s.) is one of the oppressed figures of the beginning of Islam, and he must be known accurately. There is no one more oppressed than him at the time of Prophet’s Be’that,” he continued.


    “When we met Grand Ayatollah Makarem Shirazi, he suggested making a film about Hazrat Abu Talib (a.s.). This important proposal must be pursued,” added the chairman of the conference of Hazrat Abu Talib (a.s.), considering the “answering doubts” as one of the other objectives of holding this conference.


    “Also, Grand Ayatollahs Safi Golpayegani and Nouri Hamedani had positive views of the conference and provided guidance. We are also scheduled to meet with other Sources of Emulation after the conference and provide them with a report on the conference,” he continued.


    Characteristics of Hazrat Abu Talib (a.s.)

    Regarding the characteristics of Hazrat Abu Talib (a.s.) according to hadiths sources and historical facts, Ayatollah Ramazani said, “Hazrat Abu Talib was “Monotheist (Mowahed)”, “Muslim”, “Believer”, “Has the highest degree of faith”, “His prayer was answered (by God)”, “Friend of God”, “Guided by God”, “Intercessor of sinners on the Day of Judgment”, “Pure”, “from the generation of prophets and divine successors”, “enemy of idolatry”, “generous”, “announcer of future events”, “wise”, “brave”, “acceptable among the Arabs”, “supporter of the weak”, “Extremely benevolent”, “Patient”, “Trustworthy”, “Wise and possessor of wisdom”, “With a lot of knowledge”, “With positions of sovereignty and wisdom (as everyone accepted him)”, “Sayed al-Bat’ha”, “Sheikh al-Abatah”, and “the head of Mecca”.”


    “It seems that Abd al-Muttalib (Prophet’s grandfather), Abu Talib (Prophet’s paternal uncle), and Khadija had a mission from God to save the life of the Prophet (p.b.u.h). Abu Talib (a.s.) was literally “educator”, and he also considered himself “trustworthy” to this great trust,” he also said.


    During the hard times of the Sh’eb (valley) of Abi Talib, and the social and economic siege of the Quraysh against Prophet Muhammad (p.b.u.h) and his followers, the Kuffar (infidels) of Mecca demanded that Abu Talib (a.s.) hand over the Prophet (p.b.u.h) to them. (But refusing to do so) Abu Talib wrote his famous Lamia Ode and expressed his beliefs. If we look at this poem, we realize the peak of his faith. Abu Talib says in one of the verses of the poem, “Let everyone know that we do not deny Muhammad, and we do not accept the words of false people”,” said the Secretary-General of the AhlulBayt (a.s.) World Assembly, regarding the support of Hazrat Abu Talib for the Prophet (p.b.u.h).


    “The importance of this ode is so great that Imam Sadegh (a.s.) says about it, “Learn the ode of Lamia and teach it to your children”. These poems show that Abu Talib had a lot of knowledge, defended the oppressed, and followed the right,” Ayatollah Ramazani added.


    Abu Talib (a.s.); a clear example of perseverance and exhort to endurance

    “Abu Talib (a.s.) stood against the expectation and authoritarian people and did not meet their demands,” continued the Secretary-General of the AhlulBayt (a.s.) World Assembly.


    “Abu Talib (a.s.) defended the right beliefs and in this way, endured and resisted. He is a clear example of perseverance and exhorting to endurance. Relying on the right path, Abu Talib (a.s.) withstood the oppressors, and became a shining star in the sky of guidance,” he stated, referring to the words of the Supreme Leader of the Islamic Revolution on the anniversary of the Be’that of the Prophet (p.b.u.h) about “exhorting to truth and the endurance”.


    Even the seminary community does not know Hazrat Abu Talib (a.s.)!

    “Despite those inspiring descriptions and those unique influences, even our seminary community does not have an accurate and comprehensive knowledge of Abu Talib, let alone the Muslim public! Therefore, some Sources of Emulation said that we made a deliberate mistake in this matter - and not inadvertently,” Ayatollah said Ramazani, regarding the oppression of Hazrat Abu Talib (a.s.).


    “From the age eight of the Prophet (p.b.u.h), when Abd al-Muttalib (a.s.) (his grandfather) passed away until his age of fifty, Abu Talib (a.s.) was a companion and the main supporter of the Holy Prophet for 42 years. However, it’s a sign of his oppression that some still have doubts about his faith,” he said, explaining Abu Talib’s oppression.


    “It is great oppression that a person who has a special family, social and political status, and has been a divine guardian, a friend of God, and has a position of faith, be accused of Kufr (infidelity). Abu Talib (a.s.) is the one who did not withhold the support of the Prophet (p.b.u.h) for 42 years, and dedicated himself and his family to the Prophet (p.b.u.h),” he continued.


    Approximate view between Islamic schools of Thought in the conference of Hazrat Abu Talib (a.s.)

    “One of the objectives of the conference of Abu Talib (a.s.) was to revive the history of Islam. Therefore, in it, we did not have an ethnic or denominational point of view. This conference provided a platform for us to get to know Abu Talib (a.s.) as one of the greatest figures of the Islamic world as a whole, not only the Shia,” stated Ayatollah Ramazani, emphasizing the approach of the AhlulBayt (a.s.) World Assembly in its activities for the proximity of the Islamic schools of thought.


    “The essence of this conference is the proximity and unity of the Islamic Ummah. Therefore, we see Islamic scholars, both Sunni and Shiite - in their various sects- have cooperated in the conference. Because Hazrat Abu Talib is one of the figures who is generally accepted among all Muslims, and fair scholars from all denominations praise him well and honor him,” continued the Secretary-General of the AhlulBayt (a.s.) World Assembly.


    Abu Talib (a.s.) and today’s society

    “We must learn from the lessons of Abu Talib (a.s.) for today’s society and the Islamic Revolution,” added the Secretary-General of the AhlulBayt (a.s.) World Assembly, stating that in the early days of Islam, there were no more influential figures than Hazrat Abu Talib (a.s.).


    “For example, just as he spent his reputation for the Be’that and Mission of the Prophet Muhammad (p.b.u.h) and his guiding movement, we must spend our reputation for the purposes of the Islamic Revolution (of Iran),” he emphasized.


    “Abu Talib (a.s.) resisted for 42 years until the movement of the Prophet (p.b.u.h) came to fruition. We should not retreat in the face of arrogant powers, and we must resist in the way of Islam,” said Ayatollah Ramazani, considering the “Resistance” as one of the important lessons of Abu Talib (a.s.) for the life of Muslims today.
