Hojat-ol-Islam Seyed Mohammad Naqib, the research deputy of
the University of Quranic Sciences and Teachings, said the conference will be
held on Monday April 24.
According to the official, the holy city of Qom, 150 km
south of Tehran, will host the conference.
The papers are on ten major themes revolving around the Quran’s
views about revolution, he said.
The criteria of revolution according to the Quran, Quranic
foundations of revolution, culture of revolution, and orientalists’ Quranic
studies and culture of revolution are some of the topics to be discussed at the
one-day conference, Hojat-ol-Islam Naqib added.
He went on to note that the International Conference on
Quranic Studies has been held simultaneously with Iran’s international Quran
contest since 2006.
