He also praised the serious steps undertaken by Al-'Ameed magazine that is issued from the Department of intellectual and cultural affairs at the holy shrine of Al-Abbas (peace be upon him).
Then, came the word of the Preparatory Committee of the conference, delivered on behalf of all members by Dr. Sarhan Jaffat, in which he explained: "It is a nice thing that we all gather here again to discuss one of the scientific venerable issues that is the issue of the "term", as a sign of awareness of the importance of this subject, if we look at the "term" as a knowledge tool, a way of thinking and searching for the scientific truth, founded upon stable and well-defined foundations and orientations. Therefore, the crisis of the "term" is an existential crisis before being a crisis of culture and a problem of consciousness. In fact, the search in the "term" in this difficult time that our country and nation pass through is not an intellectual luxury but, it is a scientific message that needs documentation, correction and renewing our approach and tools in the thinking, prompted by the advisory opinion "Fatwa" of sufficient duty (wujub kifa'i) launched by the supreme authority; Sayed Ali Al-Sistani, which aimed to correct the way people think of some terminologies such as Jihad, defending the homeland and other terms that are to be received in absence of any sign of atonement and extremism."
Followed by the word of the delegations participating in the conference, presented on their behalf by Mr. Idriss Hani from Morocco, in which he expressed his joy and delight for his participation in this conference, as it is held in an appropriate time and hosted by a holy place, adding: "We are honoured to be present at the sanctuary of the Dean; Aba Al-Fadl Al-Abbas (peace be upon him), this icon in our heritage and our history and one of the icons of the Arab and Islamic civilization who, could gather it system value, as the manners, ethics and morals of Aba Al-Fadl Al-Abbas (peace be upon him) have permitted him to deny himself and show one of the most beautiful and pure examples of altruism and heroism in the great scene of Karbala, this is why he received the credit of being the father of great values in the management of the term's crisis from the dispute to the difference."
Then, the audience has listened to a poem presented on this occasion by Dr. Sultan Jassem from Sultanate of Oman, followed by the documentary film about the Al-'Ameed magazine and its conference along with what have been achieved by it.

The first axis: The dialogue and its terminology between the language and the Quranic use;
The second axis: The nation's need for dialogue;
The third axis: Imam Al-Hussayn (peace be upon him) between the variables and the constants of the dialogue.
