The managing director of IQNA News Agency and the head of the country’s Quranic Activities Organization accompanied by the deputies and managers of this organization paid a visit to the Holy Quran Organization on last Tuesday, October 8, 2013.

   Hojatoleslam Seyyed Mahdi Taqavi, the managing director of International Quran News Agency (IQNA) and the head of the country’s Quranic Activities Organization accompanied by a number of the deputies of IQNA news agency and the country’s Quranic Activities Organization paid a visit to the Holy Quran Organization and met with Mahdi Qareh-Sheikhloo, the head of the country’s Holy Quran Organization, Yousef Afrash, the deputy of the Holy Quran Organization Technology and Communications Affairs and Ahmad Hajisharif, the deputy of supervising publication and compilation of Quran.

In this meeting, the manager of the Holy Quran Organization and this organization’s deputies presented a report on the educational and research activities and asked for more cooperation between IQNA news agency and the Holy Quran Organization.

Mahdi Qareh-Sheikhloo, the head of the Holy Quran Organization presented a report on the activities done by this organization and noted: the Holy Quran Organization has three main missions; of course, some other missions were assigned to this organization according to the statute of this organization which was revised in the Iranian calendar year 1388 and approved by the supreme leader of the Islamic revolution.

Stating that one of our missions is to supervise the publication and compilation of the holy Quran, the head of the Holy Quran Organization added: the mission of supervising the publication and compilation of the holy Quran has been fulfilled by the Holy Quran Organization for about 26 years and it has been a unique measure and before doing this work by the Holy Quran Organization, the most of the published Qurans had about five thousand mistakes.

There is no Quranic treasury in the world similar to that of the Holy Quran Organization

Reminding that at the moment, we are in a position that no Quran is published across the country with mistakes, he announced: in the Holy Quran Organization Treasury, there is a volume of every Quran which has been published so far across the country and similar to this unique collection, there is no one throughout the world.

   Stating that the other mission of the Holy Quran Organization is to develop the Quranic trainings, Mahdi Qareh-Sheikhloo asserted: since the establishment of this organization, the issue of the Quranic trainings has been considered seriously; in other words, the Holy Quran Organization has been the biggest educational system in the country after the Education ministry.

Touching on the necessity of training the teachers of the holy Quran by the Holy Quran Organization, he continued: so far, more than 70 thousand diplomas in Teacher Training have been issued for those teachers who have took the organization’s educational courses and these teachers of the holy Quran are employed for the educational courses held by the Holy Quran Organization and do the Quranic educations in various fields.

  Holy Quran Organization Educational Network extends from the center of the country to the heart of villages

 Noting that so far, about 40 educational courses have held in different levels, the head of the Holy Quran Organization added: the educational network of Holy Quran Organization extends from the center of the country to the heart of villages and the Education and Research department of this organization is responsible for arranging these educational courses; of course, we make efforts to strengthen the research field in addition to education and training, since at the moment, many shortcomings exist in the domain of the Quranic researches.

      Announcing that in the last Iranian calendar year, 30 books were produced in different sections, he added: in a ceremony held on October 7, 2013 by the Holy Quran Organization, six educational books for children as a part of an 18-volume set were unveiled and the other 12 volumes of this 18-volume set will be published in the next months.

  Reminding that the third mission of the Holy Quran Organization is to develop the popular participations in the domain of the Quranic activities and organize these activities, Qareh-Sheikhloo said: establishing Quranic-popular institutions is a mission which has began since the Iranian calendar year 1383, and at the moment, 1400 institutes have been registered and do activities legally; of course, there were 1800 Quranic-popular institutes before, but as 400 institutes didn’t have the essential efficiency, they lost their license.

     20% of institutes, first-rate; 40%, second-rate and the other 40%, third-rate

According to a rating done among the Quranic institutes in the last Iranian calendar year, 20 percent of the institutes were known as the first-rate institutes, 40 percent of them are the second-rate institutes and the other 40 percent are the third-rate institutes and the activities of these institutes are different from each other according to their rating, geographical situation, etc., he reminded.

The laws and regulations which should be observed and considered by the Quranic institutes have been published as a book; establishing rural Quranic Houses is the other measure taken by the Holy Quran Organization and these rural Quranic Houses have received warm welcome too; these Quranic houses help us to extend our programs from the center of the country to villages, the head of the Holy Quran Organization went on to say.

     The other measure taken by the Holy Quran Organization is to establish the Quran Benefactors Society; this plan has been implemented by the organization since the last Iranian calendar year and many people expressed their readiness to cooperate with us in this regard, he continued.
