Biggest Shiite Website in Spanish Language Launched

TEHRAN (FNA)- Biggest website in Spanish language featuring Shiite concepts was launched on the eve of Ghadir Feast, which marks the anniversary of Prophet Mohammad's (PBUH) appointment of Imam Ali as his successor.



Head of Andisheh Sharq Institute, Mohsen Rabbani added that currently in 21 countries of the world, more than 500 million people are speaking in Spanish and even 20 percent of the Americans are speaking in this language.

Given the fact that Spanish minorities are living in 50 countries, launching a website in that language is a significant step towards introducing Islam to the world.

An Internet radio will also be launched in cooperation with preachers of Qom theological school, he noted according to the Islamic republic news agency.

Setting up Spanish digital library, answering religious questions in that language and teaching Persian and Spanish languages are among other programs of the school, he said.
