This work was entrusted to Gholam Hossein Mosaheb. But Gholamhossein Masaheb, after reviewing the American encyclopedia, did not consider the complete translation to meet the needs of the Iranian and Persian-speaking communities, and launched a new plan based on which more than 10,000 new articles were written on various aspects of Iranian and Islamic history and culture. He had translated and included the articles of the Encyclopedia of Islam, and in the identity card of the first volume, he considered this work as a joint work of Tehran and New York.
