On May 26, 2016, The Islamic Research and Information Center (IRIC) held a symposium to celebrate the birth anniversary of Imam Mahdi (a.s.), The Savior of humankind.
IRIC has already invited anyone who is interested in making a sincere endeavor for Imam Mahdi (a.s.) by forwarding the abstract of an inspiring and innovative talk focusing on the following themes:
Call for Presentations
- Why are we awaiting the Promised Saviour? Which Saviour?
- How could we familiarize kids with the concept of awaiting the Saviour?
- How and in what manner could we best introduce Imam Mahdi (as) to others?
- Enlivening the presence of the living Imam Asr (as) in our daily life and our thoughts (offering ways to reach this aim)
- How I got to know my Imam?
The program was held at Andisheh Cultral Center in Tehran. In this stimulating program, seven ladies and gentlemen shared their inspirational experiences with the audience about how their relationship with Imam Mahdi (a.s.) is and how we could improve our connection with him as human beings. All of them touched upon the fact that Imam Mahdi is a living and dynamic global figure which everyone around the world could relate to.
Dr. Nahavandian and Dr. Safavi (Director of the Center) also made short speeches during the program. IRIC usually celebrates this event every other year, however this year the event was held in a different manner and the feedback received has been amazing.
The spirit of the program brought about numerous positive reactions regarding how creatively the idea of the Savior was presented in a tangible manner to others. The entire program was videotaped and will be available on social networks soon.
