Final Statement of the Fifth International Congress of Islamic Humanities
of the 4th Islamic Humanities Global Award
In the Name of God
Thanking God for his great and indescribable blessing of Islam and its luminous teachings, we hereby send our salutes and peace to prophet of Islam, his family and his followers. And our most sincere salutes will be upon Imam Mahdi.
We hold dear the name of the great founder of Islamic revolution, Imam Khomeini, and valuable martyrs of the seminary schools and universities. Our sincere salute will be upon his excellency, Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, the leader of Islamic revolution.
The 4th Islamic Humanities Global Award committee holds the honor to state thanks to God’s blessings, we have witnessed ongoing thrives in scientific progress in Islamic humanities to form much more favorable opportunities to hand scientific notions and theories and breakthrough in this field. What bears satisfaction and pleasure the most is the positive results of the scholars’ endeavors during last decades as well as emersion of young, elite and highly motivated researchers by the attempts of whom new ways of scientific innovation development is being formed.
It is for certain that, today, the most significant priority in the field of Islamic Humanities are the far-sighted smart investments, revival of the capacities and laying the ground for scientific creativity pertaining to applied reads and issues. On the other hand, it must not be ignored that innovation development in Islamic humanities without giving the researchers the chance to have trial and error to make it applicable cannot be achieved. As long as the decision makers believe there is no need to science or they depend themselves on western theories as well as secularism, it cannot be expected to provide considerable opportunities to expand the area of Islamic humanities to be more effective.
The 4th Islamic Humanities Global Award in this round as well as the previous ones, faced a noticeable number of suggestions from prominent theorists which made it difficult to select and introduce superior theorists. Of course, by taking the philosophy of this award into account, the committee attempts to grant the award to the people who, apart from presenting one or some considerable theories, own privileged and various attempts which in its final phase help Islamic humanities to develop more and to increase the scientific assets in key majors so that the scientific society would be able to continue its way by the help of capacities available.
