TEHRAN – “Testimony for Progeny”, a book authored by Persian language scholar and expert on Ferdowsi’s Shahnameh Mohammad-Ali Eslami Nodushan, which contains helpful advice for the younger generation, has recently been published in Tehran.

The book was unveiled at Tehran’s Niavaran Cultural Historical Complex on Friday during a ceremony attended by Minister of Culture and Islamic Guidance Seyyed Abbas Salehi.

“Testimony for Progeny” carries some advice for the younger generation in Iran on how to find their ways in life in the future.

The advice has been inscribed by prominent calligraphers Gholamhossein Amirkhani, Asghar Daadbeh, and Fereidun Majlesi.

In his brief remarks at the ceremony, Salehi called Nodushan a scholar who has bridged the gap between the classical Persian literature and the modern.

“The master has given us a great number of lessons teaching us how we can move to the classical literature and return with full hands,” he added.

He also called Nodushan a teacher in life and a doctor who has comprehended the pains of contemporary Iran and has found their proper cures and treatments.

“What has brought us together here is the book ‘Testimony for Progeny’, which carries the experience of the master that, if one wants to go through it, would take a lifetime,” Salehi concluded.
