And hence from the land of this great edifice - University of Babylon -, we welcome the dear guests in the city of Hillah city of Imam al-Hassan al-Mojtaba (peace be upon him)!

Then came the speech of the Deanship of the Faculty of Education for Humanities / University of Babylon, delivered by Prof. Dr. Riyad Tariq Al-Ameedi, in which he stated: "The Scientific Committee has been keen on the specialization of this conference on the knowledge side and not as general as previous years, so the Committee chose the linguistic and historical Orientalist dimensions to be the axes of the conference in these two dimensions."
HE added: "The Scientific Committee has received thirty-nine researches from different universities in Iraq as well as 7 researches from other countries, five of which were accepted, while 24 researches were accepted from inside Iraq, making a total of twenty-nine accepted researches. And because of the large number of research submitted in English, the committee has to devote a special axis to it, which is based on its diversity, and all of this is in the service of our great heritage in general and the heritage of the Ahl al-Bayt (peace be upon them) in particular.
Then there was a lecture by the guest of honor, Dr. Ahmed Al-Saffar, in which he dealt with several axes, including the Orientalists ideology that worked on beautifying their ideas to convince other that they are true and useful, in addition to the distortion of ideas that they intended to remove from the hearts of the nation, and finally accusing the sacred. Then the activities of the research sessions began.
