The Imam Ali Chair is the first chair of Shia Islamic Studies in the world. Dr. Sayed Ammar Nakshwani will be the first occupant of the chair.
The Islamic Education Department of The World Federation recently published 3 books on the request of Sheikh Mahmood Fayyaz’s Najaf Office. The titles of these books are as follows:
1) Learning Beliefs [Amoozish-e-Aqaed]
2) Learning (Islamic) Rulings [Amoozish-e-Ahkaam]
3) Learning Ethical and Social Behaviour [Amoozish-e-Akhlaq wa Raftar-e-Ijtemayee]
The books are written by Muhammad Jawad Burhani, a teacher in Islamic Seminary & University of Qum and were mainly published for Shiites of Afghanistan.
Sheikh Kumail Rajani, Head of Islamic Education of World Federation, had this to say about publications: “It has always been a pleasure help the Shia’s in different parts of the world. We hope that these books will be used to teach children in madrasas of Afghanistan and help them to better understand the foundations of our faith.”
In November and December 2013, The World Federation gifted 201 widows with food rations to help feed their families.
