Booth Promoting Proximity of Islamic Madhhabs at Quran Fair
The World Forum for Proximity of Islamic School of Thought is showcasing around 200 books, focusing on commonalities of Islamic madhhabs and Muslim unity, at the 31st International Holy Quran Fair.

In addition to the books, the booth also introduced visitors to some online services and the website of the World Assembly of World Forum for Proximity of Islamic School of Thought, Seyyed Morteza Sajjadi-Nejad, director of the booth, said on Sunday.

“Given the current state of affairs in the Islamic world, particularly the ongoing tragedy in Gaza, we’ve prepared works that focus on Gaza and the Al-Aqsa Flood Operation. Our booth features books about Palestine in three languages - Persian, Arabic, and English,” he said.

“We also addressed doubts related to the Al-Aqsa Flood Operation. These offerings were well-received by visitors.”

The World Forum for Proximity of Islamic School of Thought operates in two sections - general and specialized, he said, adding that books with a more general appeal have been more successful at this exhibition.

As for the general audience, they found the concept of addressing commonalities between the Shia and Sunni interesting, Sajjadi-Nejad said, adding that the term “proximity” sparked curiosity among them, leading to inquiries about its meaning.

This year’s exhibition was more diverse than the previous one, with a significant focus on children and teenagers, he said.

The 31st International Holy Quran Fair commenced at Tehran's Imam Khomeini Mosalla on March 20, coinciding with the Nowruz holidays. This spiritual and cultural event invites visitors on a journey of exploration.

Running until April 2, the exhibition welcomes enthusiasts daily from 5:00 PM to 00:30 AM local time. Notably, the fair fosters a family-friendly atmosphere, providing a warm and inclusive space for all age groups.

Iftar tables have been thoughtfully arranged, allowing visitors to break their fast together in a communal setting. Beyond its local appeal, the fair draws attention to global issues, emphasizing the role of the Quran in inspiring resistance, particularly concerning Gaza and Palestine.

Through artistic, cultural, and theatrical mediums, the fair aims to familiarize attendees with Quranic concepts. Special sections cover topics such as artificial intelligence, Nahj al-Balaghah, Quranic research and consultation, Quran translation, and easy Quran memorization.
