Disregarding the Quran is a clear affront to the seminaries and sources of emulation ‎

A member of the Society of Seminary Teachers of Qom said that that the enemies of ‎Shi’ism and the Shi’ah scholars accuse them of disregarding the Quran and added, “Our ‎jurists were at the forefront of those who give attention to the Quran and those who ‎sought the Quran first.” ‎
RNA – Speaking at the inaugural ceremony of the first national conference on “The ‎Islamic Seminaries, the Shi’ah Authorities and the Quran” which focused on the views of ‎the late Ayatollah Mohammad Fazel-Lankarani, Ayatollah Mohammad-Javad Fazel-‎Lankarani said that today the Islamic Seminaries are accused of distorting the Quran so ‎that its voice doesn’t reach anywhere and added, “Undoubtedly, the hand of the ‎Zionists is behind this because the enemies are always afraid of the power of the Shi’ah ‎scholars.”‎
‎ ‎
The member of the Society of Seminary Teachers of Qom stated that the enemies of ‎Shi’ism and the Shi’ah scholars accuse them of disregarding the Quran and said, “The ‎enemies accuse the Sunnis of disregarding the narrations and accuse the Shi’ahs of ‎disregarding the Quran and for this reason, we seek to eradicate this misconception by ‎holding conferences on the sciences of the Quran.”‎
‎ ‎
Noting out that Shi’ah scholars pay close attention to the exegesis of the Holy Quran, ‎he said, “Undoubtedly, one of the Shi’ah exegeses is equal to one hundred Sunni ‎exegeses in terms of content because we have also made use of the great sources of ‎narrations in our exegeses of the Holy Quran.” ‎Ayatollah Fazel-Lankarani emphasized on the superiority and virtue of Shi’ah exegeses ‎over Sunni exegeses and said, “The great Shi’ah scholars have always been among ‎those who give attention and have been concerned with the exegesis of the Holy Quran ‎and must not be accused of neglecting the Holy Quran.”‎
‏ ‏
His Eminence referred to the method of exegesis by the late Ayatollah Fazel-Lankarani ‎and said, “In the context of the lack of distortion of the Holy Quran, he also provided ‎very well-founded and well-documented responses and always defended the Quranic ‎sciences.”‎

He stated that our jurists were at the forefront of those who give attention to the ‎Quran and those who sought the Quran first and that the misconception that Shi’ah ‎scholars didn’t pay attention to the Holy Quran must be eliminated and added, “There ‎are many examples of exegeses of the religious authorities (the sources of emulation) ‎over the past hundred years which focused on removing the slander and accusations ‎against the Islamic Seminaries and religious authorities and ‘Tafsir al-Qayyim’ by the ‎late Ayatollah Sayyed Abdol-Ala Sabzevari is a clear exemplification of this.”‎
