We would like mosques also function as educational centers

The Charter of Knowledge Foundation under the President of the Republic of Azerbaijan covers the ideology of Azerbaijanism, promoting its main essence among the population. The ideology of Azerbaijanism expresses the national and moral interests of Azerbaijanis, and the importance of Islamic religion for people. Among the members of the Board of Trustees of Knowledge Foundation there are such persons who are involved in religious affairs, such as, the State Counsellor Kamal Abdulla, the rector of Islamic University Sabir Hasanli, the Chairman of State Committee for Work with Religious Organizations Mubariz Gurbanli. With the initiative of Mr. Kamal Abdulla there was realized the project "The traces of history in Religious Monuments". And a number of scientist were involved to research of different  religious places, monuments. There were also experts involved from different universities, institutes of the National Academy of Sciences. As a result, another idea was born - the forming of mosque libraries. A mosque can function not just as a house of God, a place of pray, but also as an educational center.

We are ready to provide mosques with books. Mosque Library project is going to be realized soon. 20 mosques and the list of religious books have been chosen for this project. 200-300 recommended books from the library of National Academy of Sciences of Azerbaijan  and Azerbaijan National Library named after M.F Akhundov - will be sent to the mosques. Some books have been sent to Barda Imamzadeh within the project. More than 60 tombstones writings were translated into Azerbaijan language from Persian-Arabic as stone inscriptions. The scientific and practical video conference was also held in Barda Imamzadeh. There will be published a book about Barda Imamzadeh history soon. And now after Barda, the work in Zagatala Aliabad Mosque has been started.
