The works of prominent Shia scholar Mohammadreza Hakimi will be published as a free software under the name ‘al-Hayat Encyclopedia’.

On the anniversary of his death, the al-Hayat Cultural and Art Institution announced that offering “cultural services for public use” and explaining Hakimi’s thoughts will be at the top of the institution’s agenda, ISNA reported.

In a statement released by the al-Hayat Institute, Hakimi’s brother reiterated that the institute will take the late scholar’s “popular and humanitarian” way of living as its model, honoring his memory without holding the conventional, expensive commemoration ceremonies.

“The great scholar once rejected the Farabi International Award for Pioneers in the Humanities, not considering such ceremonies a priority until there is visible and invisible impoverishment in the society,” Mohammad Hakimi added.

The al-Hayat Institution expressed its willingness to support any individual and organization that will follow in the Shia thinker’s footsteps.

Moreover, the institution will continue to develop the al-Hayat website to reach a wider audience.

The al-Hayat Institution took its name from a remarkable and influential Islamic encyclopedia of the same name, which was first printed in Arabic in 1974.

In compiling the encyclopedia, the three Hakimi brothers aimed to highlight the themes of social justice and individual freedom in Islam and Shi'ism.

Mohammadreza Hakimi passed away on 23 August, 2021, and was buried in the shrine of Imam Reza (PBUH).

The Islamic Revolution Leader Ayatollah Seyyed Ali Khamenei commemorated Hakimi as “a polymath, an accomplished literary man, an innovative thinker, and a just researcher of Islam.”
