Especially since the name and purpose of our institute are Islamic maqasid, and there are many aspects of wisdom in the works of Bediuzzaman, we have many things in common.

He continued as:
“I have known Bediuzzaman and his works for 15 years. I bought all of his works in Mosul. I learned two valuable things from him. First of all, I learned how to take a stand against the calamities that befall a person and how to face them as their faith grows stronger. Secondly, I learned how to live and convey Islam in difficult times and to always be hopeful.”
In the meantime, the translated books of Risale-i Nur in English and Arabic were presented to the members and the President of the Institute.
