The Ahlulbayt (a.s.) Global Information Center is an organization under the supervision of the office of Grand Ayatollah Ali al-Sistani. While they themselves include "(as)" in their organization title, some omit it.



Its goal is "to spread the Shi`ite culture through the WEB and create a kind of strong relation between the theological class and the public"

To reach above aim, they concentrate on:

  1. Quick responses to religious questions.
  2. Access to a data bank containing thousands of theological Q & A.
  3. Directly linking you to the prominent scholars of Qom.
  4. Access to a data bank containing information on sectarian differences between the Sunni & Shia faiths.


The organization was founded in the spring of 1998, on the anniversary of Eid al-Ghadeer, by Sistani's son-in-law "in a small building" in holy Shi'a city of Qom, a scholarly center of Shi'a Islam


They operate though various internet websites, including:

  •, "only about the Koran, the whole book translated in 27 languages, plus interpretations"
  •, with a collection of Imam Ali's sayings in 22 languages.
