The Spanish section of the website is mainly intended for Spanish-speaking Muslims all around the world, and in particular, for the Muslims of the eighteen Spanish-speaking countries in Latin America.
The Spanish language has more than half a million speakers all around the world, most of whom have very strong tendencies towards religion. Although Muslims are now small minorities in the Spanish-speaking countries, there are very good opportunities, particularly in Latin America, for the promotion and spread of Islam. This fact is quite evident in the growing number of Muslims in these countries.
Thus, the Spanish section of the website of the office of Grand Ayatollah Makarem Shirazi has been opened in order to provide the Spanish speaking Muslims with various religious services, including the answer to their religious questions. In this way, this section of the website will have a significant role in spreading the knowledge of Islam and making it known to those who seek the true Islam.
The contents of this section of the website will be provided according to the needs of its users. Currently, however, this section consists of the following parts:
- The detailed practical treatise of the religious laws in the Spanish language
- The Isteftā’āt (i.e. the religious rulings) by Grand Ayatollah Makarem Shirazi regarding the current issues which the users might face
- A collection of the works by Grand Ayatollah Makarem Shirazi which includes parts of the Nemūneh Quranic Commentary, the Commentary on Nahj al-Balāqah [the Message of the Imam (a)], and some other works which have been translated into Spanish
- A collection of essays and papers on jurisprudence, the Quran, Ethics, religious convictions, theology, history, etc.
- The news and the official statements released by the office of Grand Ayatollah Makarem Shirazi;
- A series of video clips and pictures with religious themes which are suitable for sharing through social media.
Additionally, the Spanish-speaking users can ask for religious rulings or receive answers to their various religious questions in two ways: first, they can send their questions via the “sending enquiries” part on the website, and second, they can send their questions to +98-9030897812 through WhatsApp.
