Thursday, 15th November to Sunday, 18th November
Sadr al-Din Muhammad b. Ibrahim b. Yahya Qawami Shirazi (ca. 1571–1636) is arguably the most significant Islamic philosopher after Avicenna. Best known as Mulla Sadra, he was later given the title of Sadr al-Muta’allihin (Master of the theosists) for his approach to philosophy that combined an interest in theology and drew upon insights from mystical intuition.

Al-Sharif Al-Radi Abu al Hasan (Baghdad, 970-1015) is the compiler of letters, sermons and sayings of Imam Ali (a.s.) known asNahjul Balaghah - Peak of Eloquence.
Al-Seyyed al-Razi completed his education at the age of twenty. His fame as a poet overshadowed his excellence in all other fields. Abu Ishaq Ibrahim ibn Ahmad al-Tabari (d. 393/1002-3), a faqih of the Maliki school gifted a house to him when he found out he had no residence of his own. In those days due to a climate of tolerance at least among scholars and students, the Shi'ah and Sunni students used to attend classes of teachers belonging to different sects. A number of al-Radi's teachers were Sunni and Mu'tazili. Al-Sharif al-Radi had intimate friendly relations of mutual respect and love with eminent contemporary scholars, poets and writers professing different faiths, which was an indication of his broad humanism and tolerance.
