وحدت در منظومۀ فکری مقام معظم رهبری


1. “Unity in the Intellectual System of the Supreme Leader”In order for us to be able to move in the path of proximity correctly, first of all, it was necessary that the unity in the thought system of the Supreme Leader should be the extracted road map to move in this direction. This book actually explains the structure and system of unity from the viewpoint of His Holiness.

Three Books from the Collection of the Works of Ahl al-Sunnah on the Virtues of Ahl al-BaytOne of the prevailing views on unity and proximity is the theory that was put forward by Grand Ayatollah Boroujerdi and some other authorities and scholars of Islam, and that is: all the Islamic world should unite on a common cause, which is the scientific authority of the Imams, peace be upon them. The introduction of this topic is to examine the position of the Ahl al-Bayt in the eyes of the scholars and elders of the Islamic world, especially the Ahl al-Sunnah, so a project titled as «سلسلة فضائل أهل البیت عند أهل السنة»  (The Virtues of the Ahl al-Bayt from the Viewpoint of Ahl al-Sunnah) was launched and from this collection, 5 works were published before, and this year 3 other works have been published.

It should correspond to the authority of the jurist, and adherence to such a view can lead the Islamic world towards a single nation.

This book is actually related to the idea that was the origin of ISIS.

Study of Religious Mainstreams
Unfortunately, one of the weaknesses in the international arena is the lack of comprehensive information about the personalities, mainstreams, and religious institutions of the Islamic world. We started a project called religious mainstreams last year, in which both countries and their demographics, and sometimes some groups and sects about which complete information is not available are examined from a religious point of view. Three works have been prepared and published from this collection this year:


جریان‌شناسی مذهبی پاکستان
9. Religious Mainstreams in Pakistan
The country of Pakistan is important for us in many ways because of the neighborhood and the connections we have with them and the influence it has on the tradition of our country and other ways. Therefore, in this book, the religious context of Pakistan, influential religious figures, religious mainstreams and pro-proximity and anti-proximity figures and the challenges of proximity in this country have been investigated.
