A prominent intellectual says Laylat al-Qadr is an opportunity for spiritual development and transformation.

Dr. Nasir Mahdavi said that spiritual transformation, soul purification, a moral boost and inner change must happen during these blessed nights.

The internationally-reputed scholar stressed that the holy prophets were sent to facilitate salvation and prove God, the Almighty’s love for the people.

He made remarks while addressing a gathering at Hosseiniah Jamaran, a religious center which is located in the northern part of the Iranian capital Tehran. The ceremony was also attended by Ayatollah Hassan Khomeini, grandson of the late founder of the Islamic Republic.

Imam Khomeini, the late founding member of the Islamic Revolution used to receive and address the gatherings, ceremonies and people from various echelon  at the same site.

Elsewhere in his remarks, Dr. Mahdavi underscored that the holy book of Quran and Nahjul Balagah, which is a collection of peak of eloquence of Imam Ali, the leader of faithful people, put emphasis on the dignity and esteem for the mankind.
