Academic Call for international conference:


“Hazrat Abu Talib (a.s.), Supporter of the Great Prophet (p.b.u.h)”


With the aim of honoring the personality of the Believer of the Quraysh, the supporter of the Holy Prophet (p.b.u.h), and the father of Imam Ali (a.s.), Hazrat Abu Talib (a.s.), by the initiation of the AhlulBayt (a.s.) World Assembly, and support of the similar institutions international conference “Hazrat Abu Talib (a.s.), Supporter of the Great Prophet (p.b.u.h)” will be held.


So far, no remarkable conference has been held anywhere in the world for this great historical figure. Although works have been written about him, a major international conference that has resulted in the publication of useful and up-to-date works has not yet taken place. Therefore, the Supreme Council of the AhlulBayt (a.s.) World Assembly approved the proposal to hold this conference.


This conference will address issues beyond the discussion of the faith of Abu Talib (a.s.) and will address other aspects of his personality that have been neglected so far.
