Due to an untimely stroke, the final sections of the announcement were left unfinished, which were later completed by Dr. Jafar Shahidi and added to the collection.

According to experts in this field, the definitions of science in the Persian dictionary “Mohammad Moin” are related to 30 years ago, which does not meet the needs of the client and needs to be updated like other dictionaries.
For example, these experts use the word “population” in this six-volume dictionary and say: “By referring to this word, we realize that the population information of Iran 30-40 years ago is below this entry.”
Abdolkarim Jafari, who founded Amirkabir Publications in 1328, wrote in his book “In Search of the Morning”: In the initial negotiations with Dr. Moin, this culture was to be published in a volume of 1500 to 1600 pages, of which 1000 to 1100 pages are included. Vocabulary and 500 to 600 pages should be included.
Amirkabir Publishing, which is the publisher of this work, says that after 45 years, it has always felt responsible for the Persian culture of “Mohammad Moin” and therefore, since eight years ago, it has held many meetings to address criticisms and suggestions regarding the re-editing of Moin culture. Has taken place, has held.

Amirkabir Publications has reprinted Mohammad Moin Persian culture 25 times so far and has not presented a new edition of it during these years.
“Mohammad Dehdashti”, the cultural advisor of Amirkabir Publishing Institute, says in this regard: “Amirkabir Publishing House has tried in these eight-year meetings to select a person to serve as the director of culture who has the ability to correct this culture.”
According to him, the selection of this worthy person, although the strong point of Mohammad’s Persian culture, has become its Achilles heel and has made it difficult to approach it.

As a scholar, Moin was a realistic and trustworthy person, always on the side of moderation and strongly avoided intentions. This feature caused many great figures of Iranian literature such as Allameh Dehkhoda and Nima Yoshij to continue collecting, compiling and publishing their works.

“Dimensions of life” of Dr. Moin is straightforward and clear, and this researcher has very brilliant characteristics, among which we can mention dignity and toughness, resonance of kindness, compassion, textualism as well as mastery and grammar as examples.
Dr. Moin did a great service to the literary community by providing a six-volume collection of Persian culture, while Moin culture was prepared with an innovative method and the use of different cultures and methods.

Dr. Moin, a patriot and lover of Iranian culture and literature, died in July 1971, and Lee presented a treasure trove of valuable works to Iranian culture and literature.
