Minister of Culture and Islamic Guidance said there are many exhibitions held in the country but none of them compares to the Quran exhibition.
Seyyed Mohammad Hosseini was speaking Friday night, August 26, at the closing ceremony of the 19th International Holy Quran Exhibition.
He said the 19th exhibition got underway with the motto of “Quran, the Book of Awakening”, and closes on the International Quds Day. “Imam Khomeini named the last Friday of Ramadan as International Quds Day, and now it is known by this name all around the world,” he noted.
Dr Hosseini also said that if the teachings and concepts of the Quran enter people’s everyday life, the Islamic world will achieve happiness. He noted that with the blessing of the Quran, Islamic awakening has spread in many Islamic countries.
He regarded the Quran exhibition as the outcome of the efforts by devotees of the Quran and Ahl-ul-Bayt (AS), adding that it was held in the best way with the cooperation of many organizations and institutes.
The Culture Minister appreciated good coverage of the exhibition’s events by the Islamic Republic of Iran Broadcasting.
Elsewhere in his remarks, Dr Hosseini said various Quranic books have been purchased from Islamic countries and will be presented in a special library soon.
