IQNA hosted the event on the occasion of the new Iranian calendar year on the first workday of the year 1400 (March 21, 2021- March 20, 2022).
A number of the participants addressed the gathering, among them veteran Quran activist Abbas Salimi.
In his speech, Salimi underlined the role and responsibilities of the Quranic community in preparing the grounds for the reappearance of the Savior.
Every member of the Quranic community is duty-bound to act as a true Muntazir (one awaiting the reappearance of the Savior), he added.
Awaiting the Savior does not mean sitting back and doing nothing until Imam Mahdi (may God hasten his glad advent) comes and restores justice, peace, freedom, welfare and calm to the world, Salimi stated.
Hewent on to say that members of the Quranic community should live a life that people can look up to them as role models.
