This year the Ibn Sina Foundation, represented by its vice-president and general director of the Sadra publishing house Seyyed Nasser Tabai, presented its new books at the 32nd Tehran International Book Fair.

The highlight of this day was the presentation of Irfan Nazarahari’s book entitled “Light and bread”. The presentation was conducted by Seyyed Nasser Tabai, general director of the Sadra publishing house. He spoke about how the book was prepared and published. Nasser Tabai noted that the translator, Yulia Fedorova (Russian academician, expert in Islamic mysticism), explained the main aspects of Islamic mysticism in the introduction, so that the book could be understood by lay public too.
