All Muslims, no matter what school of thought they follow, make endeavors to implement Quranic teachings and guidelines in their lives and thus the more Quranic news is translated and spread in different languages, the better this objective will be realized.
This is according to Iranian Cultural Attaché in Syria Hojat-ol-Islam Ali Khayyat speaking to IQNA on the eve of inauguration of the news agency’s 40th language.
He said the International Quran News Agency, which is the top news agency in the Islamic world in terms of the number of languages covered, has been well-received in the past eight years since its launch.
Hojat-ol-Islam Khayyat referred to IQNA’s daily production of 800 Quranic news and translation of the news into 40 languages and described it as an interesting record.
“IQNA’s main task is directing Muslims’ attention to the Quran more and more,” he underlined, adding that today, more than ever before, there is need for Muslims to hold on to the teachings of the Holy Book as humanity is tired of so many materialistic schools of thought.
Iran’s Cultural Attaché in Syria further urged that IQNA extend its research work and develop its activities based on the needs of different groups of people.
He also pointed to the recent developments in the Islamic world and IQNA should spread the message of Islamic awakening which is reviving justice and other lofty Islamic teachings and values.
Hojat-ol-Islam Khayyat went on to say that Islamic awakening means learning how to live in accordance with the guidelines and teachings of the Quran.
