Mahdavi Centers and Global Promotion of Mahdavi Teachings: Challenges and Strategic Imperatives
Mahdavi centers bear the heavy responsibility for promotion of Mahdavi teachings globally. A fundamental challenge, however, is that the position of Mahdavi teachings and operational planning for its promotion at the international level has not been proportional to the capability of these institutions. The basic question concerns the strategic imperatives on the way toward realization of the prospect and mission of Mahdavi centers in regard to global promotion of Mahdavi teachings. By investigating the narrative and rational foundations, this paper addressed the Principle of Da’wah (‘invitation’) as an influential Islamic principle concerned with International promotion and factors effective on the transformation of the role of Mahdavi centers in the issue of global promotion. It was a qualitative case study with an inductive framework using process tracing regarding the global promotion of Mahdavi teachings in expert institutions relevant to Mahdaviat. In this documentary research in terms of data collection, the Grounded Theory was used for data analysis and presentation of strategic imperatives. By investigating the background conditions in the global promotion of Mahdavi teachings, the research addressed the causal and transforming conditions at Mahdavi centers and extraction of the strategic imperatives to resolve the challenges using the narrative and rational foundations. On that basis, Mahdavi centers should consider the constraints and possibilities resulting from the availability of a global competition in the area of promotion, the notion of power of discourse and administration for realization of the global discourse of Mahdaviat, the ever-increasing role of individuals and non-state institutions in the international scope, and the formation of a network community revolving around the Promised Savior according to the Principle of Da’wah to play an effective role in management of the challenge of weak global Mahdavi discourse.
