The representative of Indian Subcontinent of the Supreme Leader of Ithna 'Ashari community as-Saiyed al-Mohtaram al-Akram Mehdi Mehdavipur saheb visited the Hazrat e Haatimiyah at Devdi Mubaarak, Vadodara on 22nd Jumaadi ul Ukhraa 1444/14th January 2023.  On behalf of the Supreme Authority, he wholeheartedly invited Aqaa Maulaa Saiyedna Haatim Zakiyuddin saheb TUS to Iran as he was instrumental in arranging Aqaa Maulaa's previous visit to various Iranian Institutions and Libraries.

He is completely aware of the fact that Aqaa Maulaa holds the distinction of the Final Authority in the literary world of Shi'i-Isma'ili-Taiyebi studies.  His aim of having one-to-one meeting with Aqaa Maulaa is to take concrete steps in strengthening the bilateral literary relations between the Iranian scholars and the works of our Du'aat e Kiraam AQ.  Aqaa Maulaa requested him to focus on the unique works of Saiyedna Qaazi No'maan saheb (355 AH/966 AD) of Egypt and Saiyedna Haatim Mohiyuddin saheb (570 AH/1175 AD) of Yemen.  Both Da'is did great efforts in subduing anti-Shi'i propaganda and in establishing firmly the harmonious atmosphere of the Shi'i-Isma'ili principles for Tawheed and Imaamat.

Aqaa Maulaa explained to him that, "A research scholar cannot pick a single book relating to Isma'ili-Taiyebi thought and do his work or come to some conclusions.  But, each book has some rules and requisites.  Before researching on a particular book, a scholar must study numerous works written prior to it on the same topic.  This too in front of the authority who believes and know the intricacies of Isma'ili-Taiyebi mazhab."

Aqaa Maulaa TUS accepted the invitation and gave bushraa to insha-allaah meet the Supreme Leader of Ithna 'Ashari community in Iran.  Also to meet Iranian scholars who are sincere and serious in the studies of Isma'ili-Taiyebi mazhab for bringing out its realities and removing the vagueness and falsehood prevalent in Iranian scholarly circles.
