Hujjat al-Islam Abbasi described al-Mustafa International University as an international ‎extension of the Islamic Seminaries of Iran and said, “We are expanding the discourse of the ‎Islamic Revolution and the Islamic Seminaries in the international arena.”‎

RNA – In an exclusive interview with Rasa News Agency on the sidelines of the opening ‎ceremony of the new academic year, Hujjat al-Islam Dr. Ali Abbasi, the dean of al-Mustafa ‎International University, said that after the Islamic Revolution, the Islamic Seminaries of Iran ‎were obliged to perform heavier duties in comparison to before.‎

His Eminence added, “Concerning the international responsibilities of the Islamic Seminaries ‎as well as their responsibilities in relation to [Iran’s] Islamic system, we have a duty to ‎spread the message and discourse of the Islamic Revolution and the message of the Islamic ‎Seminaries internationally in our own section, which is an international extension of the ‎Islamic Seminaries.”‎

Hujjat al-Islam Abbasi added, “Based on the decades-long activities and efforts of the ‎officials of al-Mustafa International University and its former incarnations, the International ‎Centre for Islamic Studies and the Organization of Islamic Seminaries Abroad, today an ‎international network of Islamic seminaries is operating on the global stage, delivering the ‎message of the school of the Ahl al-Bayt to the eager people of the world.” ‎

He continued, “A characteristic of this international organization is that it’s ‎transdenominational and even transreligious. We have seminarians and scholars from other ‎Islamic denominations, including Sunnis and other Shi’ah denominations, such as Zaydis and ‎Ismailis, as well as other denominations of the Islamic world within the Islamic Seminaries ‎and al-Mustafa International University.”‎

Hujjat al-Islam Abbasi said, “More work needs to be done in this regard and the message of ‎the school of Ahl al-Bayt is being spread more and more in the world due to the divine grace ‎and efforts of students and scholars and we will be more successful by overcoming the ‎problems that have arisen over the past few years.”‎

al-Mustafa International University is an international academic, Islamic and university-style ‎seminary institute in Qom for non-Iranian students which was established in 1979. It has ‎international branches and affiliate schools. ‎
