This year marks the millennial anniversary of Al-Sharif Al-Murtadha, the prominent Shia theologian, jurist, and Quran exegete. The Institute held its inaugural conference in Washington, DC, in 23 May 2015, where several leading academic scholars presented fresh research on Al-Murtadha’s role and contributions to Shia thought.
Papers presented at the conference examined the following areas:
- The Life and Times of Al-Sharif Al-Murtadha: A Historical Study of Baghdad the 11th Century A.D.
- The Theology of Al-Sharif Al-Murtada
- Al-Sharif Al-Murtadha’s School of Quranic Interpretation
- Al-Sharif Al-Murtadha’s linguistic and Literary Contributions.
The Conference  also included the inauguration ceremony of the Institute of Shia Studies, with the participation of scholars and other invited guests.
