Al-Sayyid Hasan al-Sadr wrote eighty two volumes of books, the most famous one of which is ''Ta'sis al-Shi'a''. In this book, he tried to explain how Shi'a has been pioneer in different Islamic sciences comparing to other Islamic sects based on documents.
In ''Tarikh adab al-lughat al-'Arabiyya'' published in four volumes, Jurji Zaydan, the famous historiographer (d. 1914) wrote, "Shi'a was a small sect who had no significant works and now there is no Shi'a in the world."
When Al-Sayyid Hasan al-Sadr heard about this, promised to work together with Shaykh [[Aqa Buzurg Tehrani]] and Ayatullah [[Muhammad Husayn Kashif al-Ghita']] to introduce Shi'a. Al-Sayyid Hasan al-Sadr researched about Shi'a scientific activities and their roles in foundation and perfection of Islamic sciences and compiled his famous work titled ''[[Ta'sis al-Shi'a li -'ulum al-Islam]]'' which was published in 1370/1950 in 445 pages.
By writing ''[[al-Dhari'a ila tasanif al-Shi'a]]'' in twenty nine volumes, Shaykh Aqa Buzurg Tehrani introduced Shi'a writings and works in different sciences.
