Who We Are


For the past two centuries the Islamic world has confronted the assault of an alien civilization and worldview that has challenged the very tenets of Islam itself.
Providing the necessary Islamic responses to the contemporary problems posed by current ideologies is of utmost importance.
The chaos and complexity that characterizes the post modern world, obliges all Muslim scholars to reassert the eternal truth of Islam as revealed in the Noble Qur''''an and explained in the Hadith and Sunnah of the Blessed Prophet and his pure progenies.
This reassertion must present the heart of the Islamic message beyond all sectarian biases and divisions.
In a world that truth and integrity have become exceptionally rare commodities, presenting the genuine face of Islam in an impartial and objective way is of paramount importance.
It was in response to this obligation that the IIS was founded in 1997 to identify and closely examine important issues related to the Muslim World in an academic environment.

What are the goals of Institute of Islamic Studies?
IIS aims to examine, facilitate and co-ordinate research in the fields of Islamic history, literature, arts, culture and civilization in close co-operation with the scholars who are actively engaged in quality researches in these fields.
It intends to facilitate academic debates and discussions on issues that are thought to be highly important to Iran, Middle East, Northern Africa, other Muslim Countries and the Muslim communities living in Europe and North America.
These issues must be analyzed in their political, social, economical, historical and cultural contexts.
Set up and/or support professional artistic performances (e.g. drama and music).
Further collaborate with respected universities to run purely academic conferences on useful subjects.
Actively encourage dialogue between various world civilizations and religions.
Will endeavor to establish communicative links with the scholars of various social disciplines in Europe and America, correspond with academic centres and encourage fruitful and healthy debate between researchers and academicians of these centres and those living in Iran.
