It is upon religious scholars and the faithful of every society to atte­mpt to convey the message of their religion and its commandments thr­oughout the world and to fulfill th­eir responsibility regarding the sci­entific support of religion. This fact is repeatedly referred to in the Holy Quran and Hadith. The present wo­rk contains a collection of Quranic verses and hadiths regarding propa­gation and its related issues, as dis­cussed in religious sources. The work comprises part of the En­c­ycl­opedia of Mizan al-Hikmah wh­i­ch is published inde­pendently.   

In this book, the author, by coll­ecting a series of relevant Qur­­anic verses and hadiths, attempts to con­tribute to the org­anization of a mov­ement of propagation within the Is­lamic system. His method in com­piling the present work is

1) to make use of both Shi`ite and Sunni hadiths,

2) if a particular hadith is asc­ribed both to the Holy Prophet (PBUH) and the Infallibles Im­ams (PBUT), to include the Pro­phet's hadith in the main text and to give the references for the Infallibles' hadiths in the foot­notes, and

3) in presenting the Quranic verses and hadiths relating to a particular subject, to begin, respectively, with the verses of the Holy Quran, prophetic hadiths, and the hadiths of the Infallibles (PBUT) up to Imam Mahdi in a chronological order.  

The author presents a systematic classification of hadiths and offers a clear picture of the status and methodology of pro­pa­gation as reflected in the words and practices of the religious leaders. The book's topics include the factors contributing to the success of the propagator, the status of propagation and pro­pa­gators, the mission and responsibilities of propagators, the quali­fications of propagators, the identification of interlocutors, the time and place of propagation, the means of propagation, and the rites, problems and consequences and results of propa­gation. All of the book's discussions are documented based on the Holy Quran, and the practices of the Holy Prophet and Shi`ite Imams (PB­UT). 

The Persian translation of the work, along with the Arabic text, is published with the following bibliographical data: Propagation in the Holy Quran and Hadith, trans. Ali  Nasiri, Qom: Dar al-Hadith, 1st ed., 2001, 468 pages.
