The large research services offered by the Center for Specialized Studies in Aba al-Fadl al-Abbas (peace be upon him), which belongs to the library and the House of Manuscripts of the Abbas's (p) Holy Shrine, are varied, as it overcomes the difficulties that may face any researcher or investigator who decided to write about the Moon of Bani Hashem (peace be upon him) or about his holy shrine, as it is the first center specialized in this character for study, analysis, authorship and investigation, in addition to what concerns the holy shrine.
The center’s official, Sheikh Mahmoud Al-Safi, explained to the al-Kafeel Network the most important research services the center provides in addition to the nature of the work in it. He said: “Our center deals with everything related to the personality of Aba Al-Fadl Al-Abbas (peace be upon him) and his holy shrine. The work is divided into three sections:
The Historical Section: It is concerned with everything related to the personality of Aba Al-Fadl Al-Abbas (peace be upon him) and his shrine historically, like his biography, his life, and his children, and the history of the shrine in terms of construction and history of administration, as well as documents and events related to the holy shrine, and we have accomplished many publications from books and studies in this regard, some of which are from outside the center, whether from Iraqi researchers or others, as we are revising, checking and printing these works.
- Literary section: This section deals with the literary heritage poetry and prose from articles and poems written about Aba Al-Fadl Al-Abbas (peace be upon him), and several books were issued from this section entitled (Aba Al-Fadl Al-Abbas (peace be upon him) in vertical Arabic poetry), and there are other books that will be published in the future. We also collected more than a thousand articles written about Aba al-Fadl (peace be upon him), to publish a series - in the future - under the title (forty articles about Al-Abbas - peace be upon him)) and in various aspects, and we have also issued more than one literary book related to Aba Al-Fadl (May God’s peace be upon him) and his holy shrine.
