The Rahnama Portal
A large amount of information exists online regarding the Glorious Quran and the teachings of the Ahl al-Bayt in the form of websites, wikis, academic journals, digital libraries, mass media, various television channels, etc. In addition to this information being very unorganized and scattered, it is also mixed with irrelevant and incorrect information. Therefore, retrieving and reviewing this information related to the Ahl al-Bayt on the web has faced problems. Thus, one of the last decade’s main concerns is allowing for structured access to this information.
By recognizing the pivotal role of this field in the production of knowledge, access to up-to-date information regarding the teachings of the Ahl al-Bayt for users and researchers are of extreme importance. Therefore, a specific subject-wise directory was designed to create a comprehensive multilingual list of subjects that introduce the teachings of the Ahl al-Bayt to both a global audience and the followers of this school of thought, especially researchers within this field. In this list, subjects are structured in an ordered list. The primary headings are broken down and divided into their sub-headings for easy accessibility.
The websites are checked continuously for quality and content. Still, the Rahnama Website is not responsible for the contents, opinions, links and any further updates and changes that may occur in the future to or within the websites.
