The closing ceremony of the first “World Prize 114” was held in the conference hall of the AhlulBayt (a.s.) World Assembly in Qom, in full compliance with health protocols due to Covid-19.

One of the speakers of the ceremony was the Head of the Department of Communications and International Affairs of the Office of the Supreme Leader who spoke to guests via video conference.

While appreciating the AhlulBayt (a.s.) World Assembly, Dr. Mustafavi said, “Holding the first World Prize 114, is an honor for the Islamic Republic of Iran.”

“Before the Islamic Revolution, the Pahlavi regime sought to divert the Muslims’ social and individual life from Quranic values. They wanted to pass a law that removed the requirement to take the oath of the office to the Quran for members of parliament and the government. But with the resistance of the clergy, the regime gave up,” said the Head of the Department of Communications and International Affairs of the Office of the Supreme Leader on the abandonment of the Quran in the Pahlavi era.

“The Pahlavi regime wanted the Quran to remain abandoned. While the Islamic Republic of Iran was formed based on Quranic values. The officials of the Islamic Republic, the laws, as well as the structures are all based on Quranic values. The Islamic Republic of Iran makes every effort to implement the Quran in the field of knowledge and behavior of individuals and society. Introducing the Quran and deepening the Quranic knowledge through educational and artistic programs of the media and magazines, as well as the transmission of Quranic knowledge and getting acquaintance with this divine book is on the agenda of the Islamic Republic of Iran,” he added.

“Today, we see that Quranic courses are included in various fields from elementary school to the end of seminary and university education. There are Quranic teachers and glorious books about the teachings of the Quran. Also, Quranic dissertations and researches in our seminaries and universities are very honorable,” Dr. Mostafavi emphasized.

“In the Second Phase of the Revolution, our task is to globalize the teachings and values of the Quran, and it requires that all the capacities of the country be mixed with the Quranic teachings,” he said, referring to the mission of the Shiites in the Second Phase of the Revolution.

The Head of the Department of Communications and International Affairs of the Office of the Supreme Leader stated, “We can say that Iran is the only country in the world whose officials, laws and system structure are based on the teachings of the Quran. Therefore, the officials must be familiar with and believe in the Quranic teachings and values, and the laws must be based on the teachings of this divine book.”

“Our effort will be to incorporate the values of the Quran in all the pillars of the system,” he continued.

“One of the blessed actions of the Supreme Council of the Cultural Revolution was to formulate Quranic activities in the form of a comprehensive law and to form specialized commissions in various fields. This structure was formed to introduce the Quran to the audience and to strengthen the faith and belief of the people in the values of the Quran,” said Mostafavi on the efforts of the Supreme Council of the Cultural Revolution about Quranic activities.

“I would like to thank the officials of the AhlulBayt (a.s.) World Assembly for praising the Quranic efforts of Ayatollah Taskhiri and Ayatollah No’mani at the closing ceremony of the first “World Prize 114”. The late Ayatollah Takhiri was one of the prominent figures who introduced the Quran in international conferences and his principles were based on the Quranic principles. He was also the pride of the Islamic world and the Islamic Republic of Iran,” he stated.

True felicity, spiritual, intellectual richness not feasible without Quran/Shiites should become more familiar with the Quran: Ayatollah Ramazani

The closing ceremony of the first “World Prize 114” was held in the conference hall of the AhlulBayt (a.s.) World Assembly in Qom, in full compliance with health protocols due to Covid-19.

At the beginning of the ceremony, the video message of the Secretary-General of the AhlulBayt (a.s.) World Assembly was broadcast.

Appreciating the organizers and participants in the first “World Prize 114”, Ayatollah Reza Ramazani stated, “The Muslim community must become more and more acquainted with the Quran. Because the Quran is the book of the law, humanity, guidance, Dhikr and also a savior for the individual, society, and family.”

“If one wants to achieve true felicity, and spiritual, intellectual richness in all dimensions and areas of existence, it is not feasible without the Quran. The Quran is the manifestation of the Almighty. According to the real needs of man, the Almighty God has provided for man in the Quran what leads him to spiritual growth and development, and has mentioned the laws related to them,” he continued.

“The Quran has been concerned by proponents and opponents since its revelation. The opponents always tried to criticize it. But so far, they have not been able to. Some have thought that they can bring the Quran into question. This is while God says in the Quran: “وَإِنْ كُنْتُمْ فِي رَيْبٍ مِمَّا نَزَّلْنَا عَلَىٰ عَبْدِنَا فَأْتُوا بِسُورَةٍ مِنْ مِثْلِهِ” (And if you are in doubt concerning that which We reveal to Our slave (Muhammad), then produce a surah of the like thereof.) (Quran, Surah: Al-Baqarah, Verse: 23),” continued the Secretary-General of the AhlulBayt (a.s.) World Assembly.

“From the point of view of those who have meticulously studied the Quran from various aspects, this divine book is a miracle. Epistemological, ethical, scientific, anthropological, cultural, and everything that can play a role in guiding human beings are mentioned in the Quran,” he said.

“During the 42 years after the Islamic Revolution of Iran, great measures have been taken about the Quran. In the scientific and academic fields, valuable activities have been done in establishing disciplines related to the Tafsir and sciences of the Quran and research institutes. Researchers have done extensive research on various Quranic topics, and have presented them to the scientific and international community. However, despite the measures taken, not a drop of the boundless ocean of the Quran has been depicted yet. The Quran is an infinite manifestation of God Almighty and must be addressed from time to time with newer details. There are also magnificent activities and works of art related to the Quran in the world,” said Ayatollah Ramazani on Quranic activities after the Islamic Revolution of Iran.

“This valuable initiative, with its unparalleled reception, and the 500 magnificent works that were participated in from around the world, and judged by strong judges, could be a blessed start,” he said regarding the first World Prize 114.

“It is important that the followers of the AhlulBayt (a.s.) all over the world become more acquainted with the Quran, and have a connection with this divine book. Because the Quran is a book of salvation for the human world, and if man wants to be liberated, he must use this book as a source,” added the professor of higher levels of the Islamic seminary of Qom.

“On the anniversary of the demise of the great Quranic commentator, Ayatollah Taskhiri, we honor his memory. He was the eloquent spokesman of Islam and Shia. May God unites all those who have served the Quran with the Quran, and increase the love for the Quran among Muslims, and eradicate vicious Covid-19 virus, which has plagued human society, and may health return to all humanity,” he concluded.

After the recitation of verses from the Holy Quran by Mr. Moghaddasi, the Secretary of the “World Prize 114” presented a brief report on the process of the competition.

Hojat al-Islam Dr. Mohammad Javad Zarean said, “Based on its main mission, the AhlulBayt (a.s.) World Assembly pays attention to various aspects of the life of Shiites around the world, and in this regard, the Assembly included Quranic issues as part of its activities. For the past three decades, the Assembly has been publishing and translating the Holy Quran, as well as publishing and translating Tafsir books.”

“Quranic figures such as Ayatollah Asefi and Ayatollah Taskhiri were members of the AhlulBayt (a.s.) World Assembly and dealt with Quranic affairs in their lifetime,” added the Deputy for International Affairs of the AhlulBayt (a.s.) World Assembly.

“In addition to the international Quranic activities carried out by various institutions, the AhlulBayt (a.s.) World Assembly decided to have a special program for the Shiite communities and to promote the Quranic status of the Shiites. Therefore, “World Prize 114” was planned in this regard,” Zarean said, referring to the objectives for launching “World Prize 114”.

At the “World Prize 114”, Shiites around the world were asked to submit their works, so that the selected works would be honored after judging. With the least public announcement, and in less than four months, more than 500 works were submitted to the Prize Secretariat, many of which were valuable works. Out of 500 submitted works, about 200 works in the first judging, and 14 works in the final judging, were selected as the best works,” he continued.

“Due to restrictions imposed by Covid-19, the face-to-face closing ceremony of the “World Prize 114” was limited, and it was decided to broadcast the event widely in cyberspace,” stated Dr. Zarean, referring to the conditions of the closing ceremony of this world prize.

“We hope that in the coming years, “World Prize 114” will be continued more vigorously,” concluded the Deputy for International Affairs of the AhlulBayt (a.s.) World Assembly in the end.

At the beginning of the meeting, Hossein Asadi, Chairman of the Jury of the, said, “The 22 works submitted to the World Prize 114, have reached the final stage after going through various stages of judging, and the selected works will be determined by points of the judges in the final stage. These works will be announced at the closing ceremony of the World Prize 114 soon.”

It should be mentioned that by the initiative of the AhlulBayt (a.s.) World Assembly, the call for participate in First World Prize 114 was issued on April 9, 2020 (Coincided with 15 Sha’ban 1441) to select the best media productions and Quranic activities of the followers of the AhlulBayt (a.s.). After receiving more than 500 works and Quranic activities from different countries of the world, and passing the preliminary and semi-final evaluation stages in the secretariat, the festival has approached its final stage.

“For the first time, the World Prize 114 was established by the Deputy for International Affairs of the AhlulBayt (a.s.) World Assembly for the promotion-propagation purposes. The purpose of this award is to pave the way for the production of Quranic works and to encourage missionaries to promote the Quran in all parts of the world. The call for the First World Prize 114 was issued on April 9, 2020 (Coincided with 15 Sha’ban 1441), and so far, 510 works from different countries have been submitted to the World Prize 114 Secretariat in the form of face-to-face and virtual Quranic activities, and production and distribution of Quranic works in areas such as radio production, podcasts, photo-text, and video,” he continued.

“Holding Quranic promotion-propagation activities such as reciting Quran juzʼs and Quranic education class will refresh the atmosphere of Shiite communities,” added the chairman of the jury of the World Prize 114.

“In the Secretariat of the World Prize114, these works were judged in two stages of preliminary and semi-final screening, and 22 works in different categories reached the final stage as candidates. In the final judging session, the selected works will be introduced for a few minutes and then the judges will present their opinions. Then, each judge gives between 0 and 14 points to each work. Finally, by adding these points, the final works will be introduced at the closing ceremony,” Asadi added, announcing that the number of works submitted to the Secretariat of the World Prize 114, is 510.

“In cooperation with other institutions, it is planned that the AhlulBayt (a.s.) World Assembly, will establish Club 114. This club will help increase the knowledge and synergy of those who want to work on the production and promotion of Quranic content,” he mentioned.

Following the meeting, Dr. Edgardo Rubin (Soheil As’ad), one of the World Prize 114 Judges, said, “The holding of such awards by the AhlulBayt (a.s.) World Assembly is effective in reviving the teachings of the Quran, and I was impressed to see the works submitted to the Secretariat of the World Prize 114. Once, the Holy Quran was abandoned in the Islamic world. But after 40 years of the revival of the Holy Quran by the Islamic Republic of Iran, even works from Mexico are submitted to the World Prize 114, or a girl active in the Quranic field, only 12 years old, has 300,000 viewers in social media, which is a source of honor.”

Hojat al-Islam Hossein Soleimani, another judge of the World Prize 114, also stated, “Like other fields and activities, there are unknown Quranic talents and communities among Shiites in the world. In the meantime, we do not even know 10% of them. These communities work in low profile. But the important point is that there should be networking between them, and these communities should be interconnected and provide more comprehensive performance by providing training to them.”

In the final judging session, considering the establishment of this award as a blessed and appropriate action, Hojat al-Islam Mohammad Ali Moeinian, one of the judges of the World Prize 114, stated, “This Prize was started with the efforts of our friends, and in the AhlulBayt (a.s.) World Assembly, we succeeded in serving to establish the World Prize, and despite the limited time, it was very well received.”

“Some major Quranic communities in various countries were not informed of the World Prize 114. We must work to resolve this shortcoming in the future. This award has blessings that we will see in the years to come,” he continued.

Dr. Rahim Khaki, another judge of the World Prize 114, also said, “This Prize can encourage teenagers and young people for Quranic activities. It is necessary to commemorate those who work in the field of the Quran in the world. The World Prize 114 has the potential to become an international Prize, and I hope that it will be continued in the coming years.”

It should be mentioned that in the section of Quranic institutes, 12 institutes from different countries reached the final competition of World Prize 114 and judging.
